Most people, if not everyone, have experienced gut feelings in their lives. It could be a strong intuition about someone giving you a bad vibe or feeling compelled to avoid attending an event for no apparent reason.
But what is intuition or “gut instincts?” And is intuition always correct? This article sheds light on intuition, what it could be communicating, and should you always trust your intuition?
● It Could be Communicating Danger
The ability of our bodies to detect a potentially dangerous or threatening situation is advantageous to us. Often fear or danger will manifest as a tightening in the stomach or a general sense of anxiety.
● You’re in a Good Company
Intuition has always been associated with negative events. However, that’s not true. Intuition can be a pleasant feeling signalling that you are on the right track.
For instance, intuition helps us make new friends, romantic or not. These new people may give you positive vibes that they’re awesome people.
Often when you’re in good company, it will be manifested in warm, joyful, and comfortable sensations in your gut. You can expect feelings of peace and bliss.
● It Can Tell When You’re Manipulation is Present
The same way our intuition can help us determine when we’re in a good company, it can also help us determine when someone isn’t genuine. The feeling of manipulation can always manifest itself as an unsettling sensation in your gut.
● Your Body is Getting Sick or Physically Wrong
I think our body getting sick is one of the most common intuition sensations that everyone experiences in their lifetime. And more often, this gut feeling usually turns out to be correct.
It is easy for anyone to notice slight changes in their body since they’re fully aware of their bodies. When you experience this intuition, you better head to the hospital for medical-check outs. It would help if you didn’t disregard your instincts when you feel something is wrong with your body.
And So Should You Always Trust Your Intuition?
So is your intuition always right? Unfortunately, the answer to this question isn’t as simple as yes or no.
Paying close attention to your intuition is the first step to help you determine what’s real from what isn’t.
Your intuition usually acts as pattern recognition, and often, they’re meant to keep you safe. However, intuition can be confused with previous anxieties and prevent you from prospering.
Moreover, because of this, you may be projecting and giving your intuition a free license to hold you back. We’ve heard that a woman’s intuition is always correct. But did you know you could be projecting your fears of being cheated on from the previous relationship to your new partner?
It would help if you didn’t misinterpret your fantasy and idealization. This way, you avoid thinking that your instinct manifests things to you when it is not.
Therefore, it is essential to stay in tune with your intuition. Learning to meditate helps to recognize intuition. Make space in your day to remain silent and go within. It helps to strengthen the right voice.
Besides this, you can try journaling to hone your intuition skills. This will help you notice repeating trends when you trusted your instincts and the unpleasant results when you didn’t.
Our intuition manifests itself physically. Gut feelings are often accurate. With the continued development of your spiritual life, you need to be patient and practice more to recognize feelings of peace and joy from intuitive signs and messages.
This will help you identify when the gut feeling or intuition you’re receiving should be trusted or not. And after some time, you’ll notice these feelings have gotten stronger and more precise, making it easier for you to act on them.
