Intuition is the ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning. As a noun it’s definition means that someone uses quick understanding to interpret but without using reasoning or perception, a snap judgment. The definition of the word comes from the Latin roots in-meaning “at” or “on” and tueri meaning “look at, watch over.” If you know the definition of this noun by quick insight without relying on reason, you know what intuition means!
Pretty much everyone has experienced a gut feeling, that unconscious reasoning that propels us to do something without telling us why or how. However the nature of intuition has long eluded us, and has inspired century’s worth of research and inquiry in the fields of philosophy and psychology.
Sophy Burnham, bestselling author of The Art of Intuition says, “I define intuition as the subtle knowing without ever having any idea why you know it. It’s different from thinking, it’s different from logic or analysis … It’s a knowing without knowing.” Our intuition is always there, whether we’re aware of it or not. Intuition is receiving input and ideas without knowing exactly how and where you got them from.
Intuition, put simply, is knowing something without thinking beforehand. It is that guiding “inner voice” which always knows the truth – what is ultimately best for you, in all situations. Intuition shows up in many ways, sometimes in dreams, flashes of mental imagery, positive and negative vibes, coincidences, synchronicities, insights, and gut feelings.
Caroline Myss says, “We often hesitate to follow our intuition out of fear. Usually, we are afraid of the changes in our own life that our actions will bring. Intuitive guidance, however, is all about change. It is energetic data ripe with the potential to influence the rest of the world. To fear change but to crave intuitive clarity is like fearing the cold, dark night while pouring water on the fire that lights your cave. An insight the size of a mustard seed is powerful enough to bring down a mountain-sized illusion that may be holding our lives together. Truth strikes without mercy. We fear our intuitions because we fear the transformational power within our revelations.”
Nothing new needs to be learned, since this ability is already inside of you, you were born with intuition. Most of us simply do not focus on developing intuition after birth, as we live in a society focused on the physical world, that which we can see, taste, touch, hear, etc. True intuition is about tapping into the scientifically proven quantum field within all living beings, including you!
Albert Einstein said, “It is our most valuable asset, and one of our most unused senses.” He described it as “A feeling for the order lying behind the appearance of something.” Sometimes it is referred to as gut feeling, sixth sense, innate wisdom, inner sense, instinct, inner voice, or spiritual guide.
The intuition’s most important role is that it alerts us to the path, people, and circumstances that we will uniquely find fulfilling. Using your intuition or sixth sense is just like working a muscle. It will get stronger the more you use it. It is related to developing a higher consciousness in order to train these sensors and to make the process of receiving information intuitively a more conscious one.
Arianna Huffington in her book titled Thrive states, “Even when we’re not at a fork in the road, wondering what to do and trying to hear that inner voice, our intuition is always there, always reading the situation, always trying to steer us the right way. But can we hear it? Are we paying attention? Are we living a life that keeps the pathway to our intuition unblocked? Feeding and nurturing our intuition, and living a life in which we can make use of its wisdom, is one key way to thrive, at work and in life.”
Intuition is a process that gives us the ability to know something directly without analytic reasoning, bridging the gap between the conscious and unconscious parts of our mind, and also between instinct and reason. An ability to understand or know something immediately based on your feelings rather than facts. The question cannot be whether rational reasoning or intuitive decision making is generally better. The question is rather in each individual case how both approaches can be best combined for optimal results.
Ivy Estabrooke, a Program Manager at the Office of Naval Research, told the New York Times in 2012, “There is a growing body of anecdotal evidence, combined with solid research efforts, that suggests intuition is a critical aspect of how we humans interact with our environment and how, ultimately, we make many of our decisions.” Intuitive decision making is far more than using common sense because it involves additional sensors to perceive and gain awareness of the information from outside.
Intuition can be trained and at its highest level leads into a conscious contact with non-incarnated beings, a process usually called channeling. It is our ability to perceive the subtle-dimension or the unseen world of angels, and guides. It also includes our ability to understand the subtle cause and effect relationship behind many events, which is beyond the understanding of the intellect.
