  • Intuition and the power of your gut instinct
February 13, 2021

Our intuition is a primal way of making decisions that should not be overlooked. It pays to tap into the body’s natural wisdom and intelligence often to make the right decisions in life.

Use the power of the subconscious

Gut feeling is a way of making decisions, and all people have this gift but unfortunately rarely if ever use it.

Often you only realize later that the first impression or the initial gut feeling was trying to tell you something. 

It pays to use this intuitive intelligence much more often to prevent wrong decisions.

What actually is a gut decision?

In general, a gut feeling seems to be an unconscious decision because it arises before the rational and analytical mind comes in. 

The brain quickly evaluates previous experiences and begins to formulate a plan of action. 

Many people override this feeling and then make a decision that is influenced just by the thinking mind.

Often it is heavily influenced by the opinions of other people that lead to unconscious decision-making. 

Humans tend to walk with the crowd and follow the herd, even when you “have the feeling” that the choice is clearly wrong, a part of you may start to second guess yourself, this is the moment you need to be aware of. 

However, an untrained gut feeling is not always the best advice. Therefore, the power of the subconscious should become more developed


Sharpen your intuition

Intuition can feel like a simple stomach pain or subtle butterflies in the chest, shortness of breath or show up in the form of many different bodily sensations.

It can happen before an unpleasant appointment, a wrong turn in the car, or the tingling sensation in the stomach when something nice is about to happen (like seeing the love of your life walk by before you’ve ever met). 

It can signal both positive and negative life experiences and realities.

The subconscious reports past experiences and ensures that these body signals arise, it’s kinda like the bodies memory.

Brief impressions, which are actually not even consciously perceived, are stored in the subconscious and result in a strange feeling moar of the time arising in the stomach or solar plexus area.

A little analytical thinking is therefore very useful, but Irrational decisions should definitely be questioned since incorrectly stored information often simply deceives the gut feeling.

Intuition is not something psychic

It is often said that intuition is something magical or even supernatural, however, the gut feeling can be explained very easily. 

Anyone who has had good experiences with it subconsciously trains this power and relies more and more on it. 

This happens almost unconsciously, but is still just a matter of practice. 

Unconscious thought processes in particular are more likely to be successful if you simply let the problem rest for a little while. 

For example; if there’s a big decision to make, just try sleeping on it overnight and you will probably wake up the next morning in a better frame of mind with the right feeling. 

Drugs and alcohol can inhibit and negatively affect you from feeling, sensing and tapping into your intuition. 

This gift always shows up when the problems of making decisions are simply ignored. 

When is it worth relying on intuitions

Everyone actually knows what is good for them and what is not. It is usually only rational reasons why the feelings are pushed aside. 

When you change jobs, you usually know exactly whether the new job is just a little scary or just not suitable for you – what’s your heart trying to tell you?

Tingling sensations in the stomach is good and normal, but if it becomes a stone, denser and heavy, then the change is probably wrong. Often things are just talked about nicely even though they don’t fit.

This phenomenon is also evident in relationships, the feeling in the stomach is often ignored. It helps here if you transfer your situation to a stranger. With the perceived distance, the decision is suddenly very easy.
