The definition of intuition, from The Collins Australian Dictionary is; “Instinctive knowledge of, or belief about something without conscious reasoning. Sounds helpful?
Everyone can access their intuition
We all experience intuition at times, sometimes as hunches. From time to time we refer to it as our inner voice. Have you ever been thinking about someone and then the phone rings and this person is on the other end of the line? This is intuition.
Intuition can contradict what we want to do
Many of us have intuitions to get fit, but find it difficult to pull ourselves off the sofa and exercise! We don’t always want to follow our intuitions.
Intuition can work in mysterious ways
I remember 12 years ago, driving my brother to the airport. Dave had been visiting me for 2 weeks and he was returning home to Chicago. During the car journey I had a sudden intuition that something was wrong and called out to my brother accordingly.
Being post Sept 11th, my brother asked nervously if it was the aeroplane. I replied that I didn’t actually know what was wrong. The aeroplane was safe. We were safe and there was no danger, but I was intuitively being alerted that something had happened to a family member at 11.07am.
I dropped my brother off, returned home and twenty minutes later received a phone call from the local hospital. At 11.07 that morning my son, who was young at the time, had fallen off his skateboard and broken his arm.
Knowing I wasn’t available, my young son had asked a nearby gentleman if he could borrow his phone to arrange for an ambulance to take him to the hospital!
Is intuition wishful thinking?
It is helpfulto pay attention so we can recognize our intuitive sensing. It can be confusing ascertaining if our intuition is pure, or clouded with wishful thinking or projection.
Intuition isn’t always right
Often our intuition is coloured and prejudiced with our own thoughts and emotions. Aim for pure intuition. Pure intuition is always helpful and so it is worth acquiring. Be patient and practise different ways to harness your intuition.
