Gut Feelings: The Power of Intuition

by Michael Corthell

Your intuition is the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning. Many people believe it is God talking to them. They could be right. It is a thing that one knows or considers likely from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning.

Intuition is a moment when you instinctively know if something is okay or a situation that you know will turn out all right, Or, on the other hand, won't turn out alright. It’s your inner voice, the voice in your head that that just knows. It is also just a little more than mere Faith.

Albert Einstein said that intuition is one of our most valuable assets we have as human beings, and one of our most unused senses. He called it “a feeling for the order lying behind the appearance of something.” Intuition is described as an instinct, gut feeling, sixth sense, innate wisdom, inner sense, inner voice, spiritual guide or the whisper. This author calls his intuition, God, the Holy Spirit.

Whatever we label it, intuition or gut feelings are real - with very high levels of accuracy.

Let's see how to start developing this gift:

1. Make a conscious decision to take notice of your intuition. Stop dismissing this part of yourself.

2. Be aware. Keep a journal that tracks your dreams and all the so called 'coincidences' in your life. (remember, there are no coincidences)

3. Meditate daily. Visualize your goals and the path you should take to reach them. Do this regularly and the inner voice, that whisper will come.

Lastly, don't call it crazy when you get flashes of intuition. Many times, we argue with our intuition rather than follow it. If we do this, we might just rationalize ourselves out of a gut feeling that could save a life ours or someone else's. Developing your intuition and listening to your inner voice is just like learning any new skill. Practice, practice, the more you practice, the better you get. Good luck! I have a feeling that you'll do just fine.

that you can feel in your stomach.''
