Intuition Isn’t Just Our Sixth Sense, It is All of Our Senses

Intuitive information comes in many forms and is often triggered by something we hear, see, smell, touch, or taste. Intuitiveness is part of the inherent basic instincts we are all born with. The combination of the two is what guides us when we act impulsively, such as having the urge to cross the street to avoid an oncoming individual, even though we can’t rationalize why.

Intuitive information may come to us as a fleeting thought, or an instant idea that pops into our heads. It may come as an emotional or a physical reaction such as feeling that need to cross the street as I mentioned. Intuitive information is our alert mechanism. Unfortunately, we tend to associate it with negatives and what we should avoid. Intuition is there to always guide us to the positive. Don’t bother asking your partner, friend, or co-worker what your intuitive impression means, because their interpretation may be contrary to yours. For example, you may love the smell of oven-baked bread, while that same aroma makes someone else feel uneasy or nauseous. What does it mean to you alone, and how does it make you feel? The answers to those two questions will also come to you quickly. Don’t second-guess them, just acknowledge and utilize them.

There are countless examples of individuals trusting their gut feelings, only to discover after the fact that their decision either saved them from something negative or drew them to something positive.

A business owner was approached about partnering with another. Although the potential partner presented themselves well, and on paper, all seemed fine, this business owner still felt inexplicably uneasy. When asked about it, she explained that every time she thought about this opportunity, the thought of a toilet flushing instantly came to mind. As she analyzed her strange reaction, she asked herself one question, ‘what does a toilet flushing signify to me?’ She interpreted it to mean that success would be flushed down the toilet. Declining the invitation to merge, she later discovered that the mans’ reputation and credentials were not what he presented, and she surely would have sustained considerable losses.

As you navigate through these first months of 2022, pay attention to those seemingly random, yet spontaneous thoughts and feelings you have. Don’t shy away from them. Instead, ask yourself one simple question, ‘what does this mean to me?’ Then acknowledge if it means something positive or negative, and act accordingly. Over a noticeably brief period of time, you’ll discover yourself tapping into and trusting yourself more than you ever have before. Remember, this ability is inherent in all of us, we just have to pay attention to it.
