Dismissing your intuition is easy. We live in a world that values logic, science, and proven methods. We hear stories of people claiming their lives were saved by listening to our unknown instinct. It reinforces the message it’s dangerous to ignore the little voice whispering in your ear, as it tries to guide you onto the right path. Everyone has experienced it. Somehow you know the correct course of action without knowing why. Your logical list says go, but your gut stops you. It is your unconscious reasoning. Intuition is a special form of communication. It is a bridge connecting the subconscious mind with the conscious mind.
We need tons of courage to disregard logic. Often this means going against the advice of advisors, parents, or other individuals in powerful positions. It takes guts to go with our gut. Trusting your intuition is the ultimate act of trusting yourself. I have never regretted my decision to listen to my inner voice. But every instance where I didn’t, I wished for a redo.
What is your intuition telling you?
Keep on writing.
