Determining if it’s our intuition can be a tricky thing. Sometimes there is such a fine line between the answer that solves all our problems and complete paranoia. Then there are times our intuition throws us a curve and surprises us.
Here Are Ways to Tell if Our Intuition or Inner Voice Is Speaking to us …
- Comes in a whisper or a glimpse. To me it’s a calm statement or a quick peek, a matter-of-fact.
- Keeps gently reminding us. The message will not change and it will keep repeating over and over -- sometimes for years.
After one of my workshops, a woman approached me. I asked her if she liked the workshop. She replied: “Not really, I don’t believe in intuition because I’m a Christian.” Her answer caught me by surprise. What does being a Christian have to do with intuition? It didn’t make sense to me until I remembered what one of my bosses told me years ago, “The key to understanding anyone’s view or anything new is to first be open to learning the terms for it, then connecting the dots is easy.”
Here are 22 Ways to Describe Intuition….
1 A knowing.
Are you one of those who want to be right at all costs? Maybe you get your thrills from always having problems to deal with. Or perhaps you think all this woo-woo is nonsense? Then I don't need to tell you the benefits of ignoring your intuition, gut instincts or inner voice. You probably think this list is NORMAL and the way LIFE IS. I know -- I use to be you.
This blog is for those of you exploring other ways to live, like I did several years ago.
Here Are Some Benefits of Ignoring Your Intuition:
Do you wake up in the morning feeling secure, confident and excited about all the good experiences the day will bring? Are you watching yourself become a better person every day? If so, you must be using your intuition.
Intuition is described as a knowing, a gut feeling, an inner voice, an awareness, a hunch, a gut instinct or a sense.
Here are Some of the Benefits of Using Your Intuition:
When we use our intuition...
- We don't need to make sacrifices to solve a problem.
- Stress, anger, and resentment disappear.
- Obstacles fade away and we get in the zone.
Take notice of when happenings go along smoothly with no struggle at all and very little, if any, effort. When we listen to our intuition or inner voice the path is easy with no obstacles. We might say we’re “in the flow” or in a state of “natural synchronicity.”
An example of NOT “being in the flow” is:
Before attending a breakfast meeting with a customer did you oversleep after a night of tossing and turning, drive on the most congested streets, wait for a parking spot and have your customer forget about the meeting?
I was glancing at the book Your Sixth Sense by Belleruth Naparstek the other day and came across this interesting information about those that easily use their intuition, gut instincts, gut feelings, or inner voice. She interviewed 43 extremely psychic people with solid reputations and a good public track record. Many shared the same health issues, family dynamic and talents.
Typical Characteristics of the Intuitives she Interviewed were:
- A woman in her mid-40s
- Parent or grandparent who displayed psychic abilities
- Some degree of two-handedness or two sidedness
- Being an only child
Believe it or not there are conditions that actually activate our intuition and make it easier to hear intuitive answers.
Are you ready to awaken your intuition, gut instincts, or inner voice? Here are 9 ways:
1 Taking a Shower -
There’s something about warm water beating on your body that releases those intuitive insights.
2 Commuting -
Whether we travel by plane, train or automobile, the commute often gives enough quiet, reflective time to recognize intuitive answers.
3 Brainstorming -
When we bounce ideas around with other people and allow ourselves to open to new possibilities our intuition slips in perfect ideas.
The Anatomy of Gut Instinct
We’re under more stress than ever before as the economic meltdown has affected everybody in some way or another. We are losing jobs at a record clip. Entire industries are becoming extinct overnight.

Everyone is feeling confused, lost and afraid. It’s hard to know what direction to go in. So now it’s more important than ever to rely on your intuition…
