The morning before I was in a life-altering car accident both my daughters (who were 8 and 11 years old at the time) wrapped their little selves around my legs and begged me not to go to work that day. There was crying and hysteria. I thought they just didn’t want to go to school. My oldest daughter kept saying something “bad was going to happen.”
I didn’t listen to their intuition that day. Life turns on a dime. And my life was never the same…I don’t have any regrets, but I have tried now for many years to be aware of and listen to the intuition of others, as well as, develop my own.
Whatever form it takes, intuition can direct your path, push you out of the way of danger, and help you to make the right decision.
Your intuition or sixth sense is definitely trying to get your attention.
There are at least four ways that your intuition may be tapping on your consciousness from your subconscious mind:
1. The Déjà vu Experience
When you get the strong impression that, you have been here before and you know that the story has an unhappy ending, pay attention! Either you have been in this exact same situation before or you are just receiving an important message through a strong feeling of familiarity.
I once had a friend that was unemployed. She was out for an interview. She pulled into a parking lot to set her GPS, and looked up at a building that she recognized. She had never been there before but she loved the place and it almost seemed like home. She walked inside and asked if they had any openings and was hired on the spot. It wasn’t where she was planning on going. She had never (as far as she can remember) been there before. She has worked at this place for several years now and has never been happier.
2. The Little Voice That Won’t Shut Up
That nagging voice that keeps telling you to check on something, to go or to stop could be your intuition. The unconscious mind sees everything and sometime it knocks on the door of the conscious mind to warn us of things to come. If the voice is persistent and it keeps telling you to “do” something or to “go” somewhere don’t ignore it. That little voice is on a mission. It won’t be quiet until you listen and act on what your intuition is telling you. As long as the voice isn’t urging you to do something, illegal or harmful you should take it at its word.
3. The “Gut” Feeling
Did you ever just know something that there is no way you could possibly know? This invisible instinct may stop you in your tracks. Suddenly out of nowhere, you just know what is going to happen or what you need to do. Go with that “gut instinct,” it won’t steer you wrong!
4. Other People’s Insight
Many years ago, my small children tried to reach out and change my future. I didn’t listen. Often other people’s intuition and insight can be valuable. Don’t discount perceptions because they are not coming from within you. Sometimes the universe sends signs. Sometimes that little voice that won’t shut up is coming from someone else.
When you give yourself, permission to follow your intuition you feel more balanced. If you are headed the right direction you become aligned and your subconscious mind is guiding your consciousness.
The more you are guided by intuition and acting on what it’s trying to tell you, the more confidence, you will have. Regardless of what decisions you have to make (sex, power, money, health) and what form it may take, listen to allow yourself to be guided by that your sixth sense.
