A card that says "Let your intuition guide you. You are what you've been looking for."

Why You Should Trust Your Instincts

Hey folks, ever have a nagging feeling about something, only to shrug it off and later realize it was spot-on? Well, it’s high time to trust your gut and give credence to these feelers – for they could lead you to make the most optimal choices in your life.

Agatha Christie once professed, “Instinct is a marvelous thing. It can neither be explained nor ignored.” This speaks volumes about how we should interact with our instinctive feelings. Our intuition, or as some like to call it, our gut feeling, is not a magical oracle, but more of our subconscious processing past experiences and guiding us to make sound decisions.

Your Past Experiences Shape Your Intuition

The best thing about intuition is that it’s inherently yours. It’s shaped by your own experiences, knowledge, and awareness, which gives it the unique advantage not even the robust intellect of someone else can provide. This unique knowledge empowers you to make choices that reflect your values, desires and truest self.

The Rich Tapestry of Fact and Feeling

When you’re met with a decision, your brain doesn’t segregate factual and emotional information – instead, it weaves these strands into a rich tapestry that’ll guide you along the right path. Your intuition is like a quiet Sage residing in you, connects your body, mind, and spirit to the happenstances of your life thus far. When something feels right, it usually is – the excitement, nervousness and expansion we feel are the markers of a new and appropriate challenge.

Nerve Cells: The Carriers of Truth

Heard about ‘gut feelings’ before? Whereas dismissed by some as old wives’ tales, these cues are really our body communicating with us. Our subconscious brain, the real captain of our ship, sends signals to the millions of nerve cells in our gut translating them into tangible feelings like butterflies or bellyaches. If every square inch of you is screaming not to do something, perhaps it’s worth paying heed.

Learning to Trust Your Instincts

The thought of listening to some obscure gut feeling could seem daunting, but it’s all about training. The more you recognize and respect these signals, the more accurate they become. Practices like Meditation help you tap into your subconscious reservoir of wisdom by establishing a stronger connection with your inner self. When you slow down and stop darting about, you allow your intuitive feelings to surface.

So, the next time a gut feeling taps on your door, listen to it! Like the wise man Blaise Pascal said, “The heart has its reasons which reason knows nothing of” Your gut is a unique, unerring guidance system programmed just for you – and it’s never wrong.

Trust your instincts, it’s about time you did!
