Intuition — Why You Should Learn to Trust Yours


The soul always knows, we sometimes refuse to listen

A gift?

When I first meet people, I get a sense of who they are.

This is not based on any spoken words.

I get a feel of their vibe, their spirit energy if you will.

Their intangible essence either attracts or repels.

When I was young I trusted my subconscious with a child’s innocence and always kept my distance.

I was a quiet and watchful child. If you observe people long enough, eventually, their “real” selves will be revealed.

It took me longer than my sister to trust people because I spent time observing them first.

My grandmother did not understand me and thought I was “standoffish”.

I thought there was something odd about myself too.

I wish I was understood and allowed to develop those abilities, but instead, I tried to conform and began to trust the consciousness instead of the energies I picked up.

I would later learn the hard way, that instincts are always right.

Evolving with your gift

As I grew older, the conscious mind took over and I told myself I needed to give people more chances to prove their true intentions.

I needed to take time to “see” who they really were.

I let my conscious mind doubt the “knowing” of the subconscious that senses the vibrations and essence of people I meet.

What is intuition?

According to the APA Dictionary of Psychology — intuition is an immediate insight or perception, as contrasted with conscious reasoning or reflection.

Psychology Today defines intuition as — a process that gives us the ability to know something directly without analytic reasoning, bridging the gap between the conscious and nonconscious parts of our mind, and also between instinct and reason.

Learn to trust the inner being

The word intuition is derived from the Latin root word intueor — means to see.

The study of intuition, therefore, seeks to explain how the mind can “see” answers to problems or make decisions in the absence of explicit reasoning. Intuition is more of a “gut reaction.”

It is said that intuition comes from a calm and mindful state.

It is not objective to the energy or messages that come through.

Just be open.

I have tested my intuition and I am learning to rely on it as never before.

Often I cannot even pinpoint what is wrong, except that I feel the other person is not who they present themselves to be.

Each time I have let my logical mind reason me out of trusting my subconscious I have come to regret it.

Trusting your intuition can save you a lot of pain and heartache.

It can render you more discerning in the company you keep and people you trust.

Accepting that your intuition knows before your logical self can be a tough pill to swallow.

So, try trusting in small increments and test its accuracy, soon you will be able to feel confident in trusting your subconscious self.
