We all have a sense of intuition. It is something that helps us remain safe in this crazy world. When you’re dealing with an issue, you listen to your intuition before you make a decision.
Some people have a stronger intuition than the intuitions of others and while it can be a bit frustrating it really does come in handy. While the cues your intuition sends you can be confusing and conflicting they are only here to help. If you are not paying attention to your intuition, you should be.
Sometimes the guidance you receive from loved ones might not be the right advice at all. In fact, it may be better for us to just listen to our intuition instead. Intuition is that sneaking suspicion that you feel when something is not right but you can’t put your finger on why. Intuition can be a powerful guiding force and is more developed for some than others.
Some people feel a strong urge or sense in their core when something is wrong while others, with a less developed intuition, might feel a small inkling that they aren’t really sure how to interpret it. Some people are born with a strong intuition and know how to listen to it from an early age whereas others develop their intuition or tune into it as they grow a stronger sense of self-confidence. The more that you love and trust yourself, the more in touch you become with your intuition.
So whether you want to know how you can follow your gut or learn to be more self-aware, here are ways to know if your intuition is trying to tell you something and how to listen to it.
You Feel Uneasy About Certain Situation
When you listen to your intuition, you normally feel happy, but if you choose to ignore it, a wave of uneasiness may come over you. For instance, you may choose to listen to your ego to make a safe but wrong decision instead of listening to what your heart is trying to tell you.
Intuition tells you “I shouldn’t be doing this”
If your intuition is telling you that you shouldn’t be doing something, you shouldn’t be doing it. There is a reason why it is telling you this. Don’t be the person to learn things the hard way.
Your stomach drops out of nowhere
When your stomach drops out of nowhere there is usually something bad happening or about to happen. When your gut does this you should remove yourself immediately. There is no point in sticking around when things are clearly heading south.
Feeling out of it or unwell
We become ill for many reasons and sometimes it is because our intuition is working to protect us. If something doesn’t feel right you need to make some changes. Illness can manifest for many reasons.
Experience More Lucid Dreams
Dreaming about falling off a building or being chased by a giant spider could actually be your intuition trying to talk to you. “Intuition can come in many forms. Dreams are a major way that spirit communicates, too. It is important to also document your experience. Because intuition often does not have a specific time stamp, sometimes we intuitively can pick up things about our past, presence, and future.
The decision you should make
Sometimes our intuition pushes us to do the things we need to do. If we are conflicted about something our intuition will sometimes just make the decision for us. This is one of the most empowering things that can happen.
You feel compelled to do something
This happens when we feel the need to do something specific out of nowhere. For instance, we cross paths with someone in need and feel the need to help them. Our intuition is pushing us to do better and be better.
If your thoughts are constantly going in the same direction there is a reason for it. Our intuition can be positive sometimes as well. It will bring us to great things.
You May Feel Inspired
You know your intuition is speaking to you when you feel inspired and excited. This could happen after watching an inspiring YouTube video or listening to a podcast. Hearing others’ words of wisdom can help direct your thoughts and spark your intuition so you can begin to follow the path you’re meant to be on.
Learning how to listen to your intuition takes time. Your ego might try to interfere, but if you practice, you’ll eventually know the difference between the two. Always try to guide with your heart. The more you listen, the happier and secure you may feel about the choices you make.
Feeling that just won’t go away
If you are feeling odd about a place or a person your intuition will make sure that feeling doesn’t just go away. It will push you to ask yourself why you are feeling this way. You will get to the root of this even if you don’t want to.
