What Is Intuition?

What Is Intuition?

The definition of intuition is “the ability to understand something immediately, with no conscious reasoning.” In other words, to have a complete understanding of everything as it happens. That sounds amazing, right? Who wouldn’t want more of that? Bridging of the gap between our conscious and unconscious minds.

It is my theory that intuition is the voice of our higher-self or God spark. You know the part of us that is still in Heaven and connected to God/ Goddess or whatever you call the Great creator. When it speaks to us, it goes through many filters. These filers are the voice of our shadow self. We must learn how to interpret our intuition from the voice of our shadow-self and/or ego.

Your Intuition Is Your Guide

Are you aware of your inner voice? Do you pay attention to it? (By the way, I’m not talking about the one who puts you down!) I’m talking about the one that softly whispers ideas and suggestions to you, the kind that the other voice might try to shut down, crying “Are you mad”!? This requires stepping out of our comfort zone, and that is to be avoided at all costs (even if the cost is living a life of mediocrity instead of the one of your dreams).

Sadly, the latter voice is the one most of us are aware of and pay attention to. The more gentle one, the one that is our intuition. Intuition is often ignored or sometimes not heard. The problem here is that it’s our intuition that really has our best interests at heart. Our shadow-self’s voice is louder, more aggressive. It has our welfare at heart too, but protectively. Sometimes the shadow-self’s voice is way too overly protective.

What’s wrong with protecting us? I know you’re thinking about that! Well, it limits us and ultimately erodes our wellbeing at a soul level. And believe it or not, that’s not good for our physical or emotional well being! If you’re unfulfilled at a soul level, slowly and imperceptibly you will develop a nagging feeling of general discontent which can have a rippling effect on your mood, self-esteem and ultimately your physical and mental health.

The gentle voice of your intuition will, if listened to, stretch you beyond your comfort zone, but never more than you are capable of. It will challenge you, but also support you. It always has your best interests at heart, at every level: physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually. Intuition will not only gently nudge you in scary directions, which will yield huge and unimaginable rewards, but it will also gently nudge you when it’s time to stop or turn around.

When you tune into your intuition and allow yourself to be guided by it, you will be surprised at how much easier formerly assumed challenges will become. And you will be surprised at how much good fortune lands in your lap. It is sometimes called synchronicity. You will soon notice how good it feels to be at ease with yourself and all your life experiences, even the ones you wouldn’t choose!

If you’re not used to listening to your intuition, learning to tune into it will require time and patience. At first, you may be unsure which voice is which. Your shadow-self’s voice is often sounds very reasonable, and using your intuition is very much like using your physical muscles. You need to use it regularly in order for it to be in the shape you want.

Getting to Know Your Intuition Better

So how do you get to know your intuition better? Start to watching your hunches, feelings, and ideas that pop into your mind. Pay attention to the voice that accompanies it. What does it sound like? Is it gentle, positive, supportive?

If it’s aggressive, domineering, or using scare tactics, it’s more likely to be your shadow-self’s voice. If you’re getting a feeling of warning and it is loud and threatening one, that is usually the shadow-self’s voice. Intuition is more like an insistent knowing. You just know. You may not be sure how you know, but you have a strong feeling of knowing.

The scary thing about trusting your intuition when it’s new to you is that it’s not based on logic and often what it suggests to you cannot be justified logically. But with practice and trust, you’ll learn to know when something is the right thing to do and is in your best interests. It’ll be easier to shrug off your own shadow-self’s voice and other fears for your best interest.

The key to developing this essential trust in one’s intuition is to start small. Don’t make life-changing decisions based on your intuition if you’re not familiar with it. You might confuse your two inner voices. Ask your intuition to guide you with smaller decisions at first. Then wait for the gentle knowing feeling to arrive. Don’t expect an instant answer, but watch out, for it will come and you’ll know it when it does.

Over time, as you tune in more and more, you’ll find you suffer less and less with worry or anxiety. You’ll trust all will work out well, and often you’ll find it works out better than you could ever have imagined!

I hope this article helps you have a better understanding of yourself and what is intuition. Thank-you for reading.

Much Love and light,
