What Can You Learn From Psychic Intuition?
The dictionary defines intuition as ‘quick and ready insight’ or ‘the act or process of coming to direct knowledge without reasoning or inferring’. Essentially, it can be summed up as knowing without knowing. We all have this ability, but what can we learn from it?
An Extension Of The Subconscious
We are all intuitive and most of us experience a ‘gut feeling’ about something on a regular basis. It may be about a person, place or circumstance, but we can all tell whether it will be beneficial or harmful to us. However, we do not always listen to these feelings and, often, we stifle them altogether.
Intuition is an extension of the subconscious mind. The subconscious collects data each and every day, storing information as memories, dreams and feelings. While our eyes, ears and other senses are examining the physical world, our higher selves experience the world on another level. Much like a two-way radio, our psyches are constantly sending and receiving signals. As we learn to discern what we like from what we don’t, our psyches create a database of feelings to help us make decisions in our daily lives.
While we are sending out psychic signals, others around us are, too. Our subconscious minds learn to differentiate between positive and negative energies very quickly, giving us the ability to identify people as ‘good’ or ‘bad’ without having to know too much about them. These judgments reveal themselves in the form of gut instincts. This psychic aspect we all possess also uses physical clues to help it reach its conclusion: body language, verbal intonations and even the choice of words used are all processed by our inner selves.
If we are to learn anything from intuition it is to trust ourselves more fully. The intuitive decisions made by the subconscious are not whims or flights of fancy; they are conclusions drawn from past experience. Before you dismiss your feelings as nonsense, take the time to think about what they might mean. By paying attention to the messages from our psyches, we are less likely to find ourselves with people, or in situations, that can do us harm.
