Your intuition is your own personal ability to understand something without conscious reasoning or evidence. It is that little voice in your head or a feeling in the pit of your stomach. When you think about intuition, you are tapping into past experiences, emotions, and your subconscious mind. Below are a few signs that your intuition is at work.
The feeling of guilt
Strong emotions will surface
Your dreams will show you signs
That inner voice telling you something is wrong
The feeling of Deja Vu
Reasons to Listen
Listening to your intuition is a crucial part of learning, life, and the pursuit of happiness. Your inner compass offers invaluable guidance that helps you maneuver through the complexities of life. When you listen to your intuition, it helps you better align yourself, reduce the stress boiling up in your body, recognize red flags, and improve your relationships with your loved ones. It gives you the confidence you seek and helps to reduce any regret that comes with making a huge decision.
The skill of listening to your intuition does not just happen overnight. You learn to, over time, develop the ability to listen to your intuition through being self-aware.
