We all recognize that feeling we get when in our gut we know that something is right for us, or maybe even wrong. There is no concrete reason for this, other than a deep feeling. This is our gut instinct or intuition.
“Intuition is the key to everything, in painting, filmmaking, business- everything. I think you could have an intellectual ability, but if you can sharpen your intuition, which they say is the emotion and intellect joining together, then a knowingness occurs.” David Lynch
A while back I wrote about eating intuitively, and I decided today to expand on this concept of intuition. Intuition is about acknowledging, listening to, and following those feelings we know as gut-feelings, inner knowing, or awareness.
I recognize that the more I listen to my intuition, the better my life turns out. In fact, I chide myself when I don’t follow my intuition, because it regularly comes back to bite me- in a sense.
Our gut, among other parts of our bodies, is essential to our intuition. Intuition guides us and helps us make decisions. I’ll tell you how to do it, but first give you a reason why it benefits us.
