We all have it—that little voice within that speaks to us; that gut feeling telling us whether we should do something or not. That feeling we all have is a special gift called intuition. It is part of our consciousness and plays a huge part in how we live our life.
Connecting to our intuition is a way of listening and trusting ourselves. If you, above everyone else, are telling yourself you should not be doing something, wouldn’t you listen and trust yourself enough to stop? Our intuition should not be questioned; nine out of ten times, it will be right. There are times when it becomes more pronounced, which is when we need to pay closer attention to it.
Intuition works around the clock in all areas of our life. Sometimes it kicks in when we meet a person for the first time—we either feel that the person is genuine and can be trusted or that something is not right so we should keep our distance. Trusting our intuition can prevent us from running into bad situations. For example, while driving and about to overtake, you might get a gut feeling telling you to stay where you are. If you listen to the voice and stay in lane, you might realise seconds later that you avoided a bad situation. Most times when we ignore our intuition, we end up in regret right after.
Pay very close attention and stay connected to your intuition; it will rarely steer you in the wrong direction. Some people choose to ignore their intuition because the feeling they are receiving might be to follow a path that they are not yet ready to take. For example, if someone is in an unhealthy relationship and their gut feeling is to walk away, they may not be able trust themselves and believe they have what it takes to help them get through the difficult situation, so they choose not to listen to their intuition and stay. If you know deep down something is not right, don’t question it—save yourself the trouble and stop, before it’s too late.
