There are many words and phrases used to describe the subject of the sixth influence card, Intuition – that ‘funny feeling’, an ‘inkling’, a ‘sneaking suspicion’, a ‘hunch’, a ‘knowing’, a ‘feeling in one’s bones’, a ‘gut feeling’, a ‘premonition’, a ‘presentiment’, and a ‘foreboding’. It is inexplicable. You cannot pinpoint why you feel or believe as you do – you just know it in your gut and every fiber of your being demands that you listen.
What is intuition? Intuition is your sixth sense. Intuition is a knowing or gut feeling that you experience without fully understanding the logic, or reason behind the feeling. It might defy rational thought or explanation, but you want to trust it, nonetheless. Intuition is a bridge between conscious and unconscious minds, between instinct and reason. It is your unconscious mind communicating with you. It can come to you in a flash of insight or feeling, or you can have an intuitive experience within a dream or daydream. It is also something quite often experienced during creative endeavors. In fact, most creative endeavors are better for being intuitive.
Intuition is knowing that something needs to be done – not knowing why it needs to be done, but trusting and doing it anyway. Why? Because our intuition provides solutions.
Have you ever walked into a room and instantly felt a certain vibe? Or met someone you are at ease with from the very first moment, and felt like you have known them forever? Have you ever had that feeling that something is not right, or too good to be true? Have you ever heard the phone ring, and known before answering who it was?
This is your intuition – your sixth sense – at work, but how strong your intuitive abilities are is dependent upon how often you use them. Do you trust that gut feeling or knowing? Or do you push it aside as illogical and irrational? To have a strong intuitive ability and to use it has nothing to do with the paranormal or supernatural. Would it surprise you to know that there is a lot of legitimate research, including studies by the U.S. Navy, into how intuition works, and how it can be strengthened to help in situations where intuitive thinking may save lives? Some of the greatest scientific discoveries have been in moments of intuitive insight – Archimedes, Isaac Newton, And Frederick Kekulé all followed their intuition. Albert Einstein believed that intuition was of great value, when it came to innovation and invention.
It is very easy to dismiss the intuitive feelings and thoughts that come to us, but your sixth sense is no different from your other senses. It is there to be used, and incorporating it into your everyday life will only enhance it.
