Intuition & The Art of Listening


A Matter of Fine Tuning :

Intuition is defined as the ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning.

Your cells are intuitive and have a memory bank of information that is stored experientially.

How they synthesize and process that information may depend on many factors especially on how healthy they are and what kind of nutrition they continue to have.

However, they are continuously in communication with you. Your sense of intuition is a part of their communicative process. So is your gut feeling and perhaps maybe even a hunch or a sense of dejavu…

That familiar feeling of knowing someone or something before even meeting them.

The rush of emotions amidst certain memories may be your intuitive sense of your cellular being getting a higher intensity of messages.

The tense feeling before a certain situation or place person or thing maybe you are getting a message across from your own survival mechanism.
Your clenched fist or the butterflies in your stomach, the knotted feeling deep within… are all perhaps a forewarning to be more present in this now than you actually are …

There is always much listening to do if you wish to decode these flashes of thoughts and feelings. In fact, they are your inbuilt guide and gifts of life. Acknowledge them for what they are.

Here are a 5 ways towards strengthening your sense of intuition.

1: Sense what you feel ... often we may never care to sense the fleeting feeling that may come along about something or someone at the first connect … That is often your intuitive self trying to send you a message.

2: Spend some time reconnecting with your self in meditation or even walk silently for a while every day being one with nature.

3: Be expressive of what you are, never stifle your thoughts and bottle up. Allow yourself to manifest freely. Remember your life is precious in itself. Live life lovingly.

4: Be trusting and trustworthy. If you can accept the world around as it is and work on evolving yourself for the better perhaps then the way you see the world will change. Positivity will emanate in your ways and that will ease up any rigidity from within to a  flexible state of being.

5 : Remember to differentiate between your overthinking which is simply creating patterns of thoughts in anxiousness and your sense of intuition Intuition comes from the place of a calm knowing.

Most importantly acknowledge your intuitive feelings. For without that intuition remains underdeveloped.

How much do you value your intuition?
How much do you allow it to manifest itself?

Do you care to nurture it?Do you care to listen when your intuitive sense talks to you?
Or do you choose to ignore it and move on?
Do you recall any instance of how you listened to your intuitive self?
Do share your thoughts.

  1. Yes, one time while driving with my sister on passenger side, something told me to brake, so I did. I was already halfway into the intersection (2 lanes going west, 2 going east, and I was going south into a mini mall), just passing the street lights in the center-median lanes (so I had already passed two lanes that went west). A car passed the red light going east, and would have hit my sister’s side if I had not went with the gut feeling. She couldn’t believe what happened and I told her, something told me to brake. We were just inches from getting hit, but didn’t get touched; just scared enough to be freaky.


    • Yes I do believe that intuition is the voice of the spirit. At times in the sensing of the guidance systems from within we are alerted in the nick of time. Appreciate your sharing of this incident here. Our deepest gut instincts are known to work like protective shield around us… Our instincts speaks from our soul & in the acknowledging we are deeply thankful. God bless you and your sister always!

  2. Brilliant post, Savvy and the pictures are so apt. Intuition is the voice of the spirit and soul and it guides you in a right direction. Appreciating each and everything that our Lord has given us is so important to lead a beautiful life.

  3. Well written and thank you for sharing!!… some excellent advice!!.. I use the word “heart” in place of intuition or the “gut feeling”… 🙂 far too often we allow social ideologies, beliefs, etc suppress the intuition/heart and it leads to unhappiness and not allowing us to be who we are… 🙂
