How To Know When Your Intuition Is Talking To You And Trust Your Intuition?
Why Is Intuition Important?
Intuition has more to do with your day-to-day life than you may think. Let’s face you do not formulate everything you do logically. You don’t make every decision with some form of logical calculation. For example, take something as simple as your drive to work. You know there may be traffic ahead, so do you take this route, or should you take that route? Your Intuition can check ahead and help you make the decision.
The issue is not whether your intuitive gifts exist or are capable. The issue is whether or not you trust your Intuition. So one key is how to know when your Intuition is talking to you. The second thing to understand is what Intuition is and where does Intuition come from.
To trust your Intuition, you must first discern what your Intuition is in the first place compared to other things that could be talking to you. So you should know what your Intuition is to understand which information, which input, that’s coming into your awareness should be trusted.
Intuition Learning, Intuition Vs. Instinct
So let’s start by understanding how to recognize your Intuition. Then you can move on to learn how to know when your Intuition is talking to you. Then, let’s examine some of the common ways people, including you, experience their Intuition.
One of the most common ways you may have an intuitive experience is in a premonition. Scientific studies have been carried out on premonitions. And most people have had a premonition in a dream. Depending on the study, anywhere from 60 to 90 odd percent of people have had a premonition. A dream is about something that will happen either to themselves, a loved one, or even an occurrence on the global stage.
Generally, the premonition comes true, usually about two to three days after they have the dream. So that’s one that probably most of you can identify with is a premonition. But, of course, if you have a premonition or a dream when you wake up in the morning, you may question it. For example, you may have dreamed that your grandfather passed away. Or your dream was about an airplane crash, or a volcano erupted. Whatever it was, you were dreaming it ahead of time.
You may awake after your dream and try to find out whether this specific thing has happened. But you ascertain that nothing’s happened. Yet. So it’s really, really hard to tell if it’s a genuine premonition or just a dream.
Dreams are not always premonitions. But, sometimes, they come true. The issue is whether there’s a way to tell the difference, and you can recognize the dream as an actual premonition. Like any other skill, learning how to access your Intuition and recognize it takes time and practice. The easiest way is to find a mentor, such as myself, to help you do so.
So what are some other forms of Intuition so that we can start to recognize them? One common one is a strong intuition about someone. Getting a feeling about something about a specific person. You have had these.
A specific person gives you the creeps. You know, they look okay on the surface, but you have just had a feeling about them. A feeling you should steer clear of that person. Or you may have a good feeling about this other person. And you think you should go into business with them because you have had a good feeling about them. So that’s a form of Intuition.
Should You Always Trust Your Gut
We often refer to this form of Intuition as trusting your gut feelings. Its official name is Clairsentience or clear-feeling. And it’s called a gut feeling because it relates to your second chakra, which is the energy center, that’s to do with the emotions. So that’s another form of Intuition that we can recognize this gut feeling, this sense, this felt sense that we have about people.
More Signs Of An Intuitive Person
Another way, type of Intuition is to know. You just know something. You don’t know how you know or why you know. You just do. You just know without a shadow of a doubt. And it could happen while you’re talking to somebody about something. And you give them some information that you know is true. A bit of information you feel absolutely sure about. It’s not something you’ve read about. It’s not something that anybody ever told you about.
Or, you know, you’re driving to work, and you just know, to take a different route today. And then when you get to work, and you talk to your colleagues, and they say, oh, did you see that awful accident on, you know, such and such a road, and you go. Whoa, that explains why you knew you should take a different route because of an accident. So that’s an example of Intuition of knowingness. This ability to know is called or clear-knowing.
Another form of Intuition is called Clairvoyance or clear-seeing. This gift is when you have a vision, you see a sign or a symbol that has a particular meaning. It may occur as you think about somebody as you go about your ordinary day. It could be that you have a vision of, let’s say, your mother, who has passed away. And you’re somewhere doing something, maybe you’re at work, and you have a vision of your mom coming to visit you.
I had a recent experience of my mother, who passed away in January. She visited me one night as I lay in bed. She was carrying a stack of books. And she sat next to me, and she was reading, And I felt that this was a message for me to get writing my next book. So that would be an example of Clairvoyance.
You might hear a voice, you might hear a voice that says, you don’t know, get out of the way when you are about to cross the road. So you jump back, and an out-of-control car goes past.
You might hear a tune, a song playing in your mind. And that song may contain the lyrics of that song might have a message for you that are just the right words that you need to hear for the situation you are in. So that type of Intuition is called Clairaudience or clear-hearing and is an aspect of your fifth chakra.
There are lots of other forms of Intuition. You have 22 different ways of being intuitive. You were born with these intuitive gifts, also known as psychic abilities. They are what are referred to as gifts of the Spirit. So we look at your gut feelings.

Unlock Your Intuition?
We associate the different chakras related to the different intuitive abilities because you often just think about your Intuition or your psychic abilities as relating to your third eye.
