We all possess it; that inner voice that tells you to go right, or to go left. Or, perhaps you are advised to stay right where you are and wait to see what happens. It steers you in the right direction, and it rarely lets you down. No, it isn’t a GPS, it’s your intuition. The mind is a powerful part of your body, and it is capable of communicating all of the things that you need to know about the next life step that you are about to take. Here are some things that you need to consider about your intuition:
It Knows What You Need to Know
There are many things about the future that we do not know for certain. No one saw the coronavirus coming, but even when the virus was not upon us, I had a feeling that there were certain things that I should not do this summer. One of those things for me was preparing for an out of country destination wedding that I was supposed to be going to next month. But even though I was looking forward to celebrating my friend and her fiancé exchanging their vows, I had a bad feeling about traveling to this wedding, and that bad feeling was something that I had felt ever since last year long before the coronavirus was a reality here in North America. I couldn’t understand why I had a bad feeling about traveling for this wedding, but I had a terrible feeling about it. Now, anyone who knows me knows that I have always enjoyed traveling. However, once the coronavirus pandemic was upon us, it became crystal clear to me why I had that bad feeling for about a year about traveling for the wedding. The universe was trying to warn me well in advance that traveling this summer would not be a good idea. My friend’s wedding has been postponed to next year, and I feel perfectly fine about attending the wedding next year and am looking forward to it.
Your Feelings Become Validated
Have you ever just sensed something that you knew that you needed to know? Perhaps your senses were heightened about that knowledge because your intuition was trying to tell you what you needed to know so that you could prepare. There may be times when your intuition provides small amounts of information that are each like a puzzle piece towards completion of a larger picture. I have personally experienced that myself; my intuition has revealed information about someone who I used to interact with, and I had never really quite believed that this person was genuine. However, I couldn’t put my finger on why I just didn’t trust anything that this individual was saying. One day, a mutual acquaintance of ours had revealed information to me about a fact about that other individual had lied about. I finally had the proof I needed to determine why I wasn’t buying what that person was selling. In other words, I had the proof I needed for why I didn’t trust that person. I intuitively knew that person was not who she represented herself as, and I quickly distanced myself from her even further.
Your Intuition Works for Your Best Interests
Have you ever wanted to experience the loyalty from someone who is always on your side no matter what? That is what your intuition is; an inner guide that never ever lets you down. Your intuition knows, feels, and guides because it is a direct perception of the truth. Not only will the truth set you free, but it will EMPOWER you. When you face reality, you are better equipped to make better decisions for yourself. You will benefit greatly by trusting your intuition if you want to live the life that you were destined to live.
Each person has free will, and you have the choice to either listen to your intuition or choose to ignore it. You might find that your intuition will protect you from going down paths that you do not need to be on. The company you keep, the company that you build or work for, and the education you seek are huge impacts on your daily living. Building faith in what the universe is trying to show you on a daily basis will help you to feel more secure about the steps you need to take to live the purposeful life that you are meant to live.
