“Clear intuition requires the ability to respect your own impressions. If you need another person to validate your own impressions, you interfere tremendously with your own ability to intuit.” ~ Caroline Myss
Most people would claim that they aren’t intuitive and instead use logic and reasoning to make important decisions.
Intuition is that small, quiet voice inside that tells you the truth about everything. Our logical minds really only tell us a fraction of the truth about a particular situation.
As an Intuitive Coach, I am often asked how it is I could possibly “know” things about my clients just minutes after meeting them. They ask how I get my information about who they are, past issues or things that have happened in their lives that they’ve never told me about, or a vibe I’m picking up on about another people in their lives.
I admit that I can never really answer that question the way people want me to. Because I’ve never had a really down-to-earth answer for how I know these things other than that I use and completely trust my intuition and inner guide when it’s speaking to me.
Some people would argue that there are people in the world who have this gift, and others who don’t. I would argue that we all have it, but we just need some assistance in knowing how to tap into it. Nine times out of 10, when I am working with a client and I tell them what I’m picking up on their current situation or about a particular person they are asking me about, their response is, “Yea, I was kinda thinking the same thing,” or “I felt that way too, but wasn’t sure if I was making it up.”
Which just goes to show that we usually know things intuitively but want another person to validate it for us because we don’t trust it.
Intuition exists in all of us, whether we acknowledge it or not. The more we can tap into it, the more we can use it to make really important decisions in our lives and avoid people and situations that can hurt us.
