Someone who wrote in the Facebook comments made a good point. The person said, “The reason people are not making good decisions is that they are not listening to their intuition (or gut feeling).” If you feel resistance to something, that’s a warning sign. If you feel unsure about something, that’s a warning sign. So many people override their intuition because of societal pressure or because they trust outside influences.
The good news is that you can start today, in the present moment, to listen to your intuition. You are okay – no matter where you are in your life. Take a deep breath! You can become more intuitive.
Paramahansa Yogananda says, “Faith, or the intuitive experience of all truth, is present in the soul.” Human beings can tap into this intuitive experience – it’s gifted to us as divine beings. One way to explore your intuition is to learn more about your third eye Chakra.
Lynn Robinson says in her book Divine Intuition, “Make decisions from the standpoint of joy.” She gives five simple ideas that include a focus on gratitude, be kind, do what you love, meditate and pray, and ask yourself, “What am I learning from this?”
Robinson continues to say that you can receive intuitive messages from images and symbolic pictures, your inner voice, emotions or gut feeling, physical sensations, epiphanies (sudden realizations), and dreams.
When you are intuitive, you are brave. Your inner voice or gut feeling may be telling you something different than the world around you. It takes courage to live your life on your own terms.
Listening to your intuition cultivates a strong heart. A strong heart = no fear.
What is Truth? A difficult question; but I have solved it for myself by saying that it is what the "voice within" tells you. - Mahatma Gandhi
