My top 10 quotes on trusting your intuition

WE LEARN A LOT in school. From how to count, spell, read, and write, to remember important events in history, or to calculate probability rates. While these skills might be unquestionably valuable, emotional competencies like grieving, recognizing your instincts, and honing the skill of acting upon one’s gut feeling may be more universally important, yet they receive minor attention in the traditional classroom setting.

Essentially, we all have basic instincts that tell us to eat, sleep, and survive. But we also have a spiritual instinct.

Your intuition is that part of your brain that sees, feels, and experiences other things than your logical mind. I consider it as this little invisible man, sitting on your shoulder that guides you in times when there’s no reasoning for a situation but only a felt knowing.

It’s that yearning for something more, which is inside of you. It’s that yearning desire that is seeking something higher than your mind and your body. So many times our gut is guiding us through rough times and telling us whether something is the right thing to do right now.

I call it intuition and it is more than just a voice – it’s whispering to you all the time. All animals have it. However, despite all our potential as human beings – we’re the only creatures that try to deny and ignore it.

Despite the huge role that intuition plays in our everyday lives, it is still hard to define it. The nature of intuition has long inspired centuries’ worth of research and inquiry in the fields of philosophy and psychology. In 2016, researchers devised a technique to measure intuition. Based on a small experiment of 20 participants, they found evidence that people can use their intuition to make faster, more accurate and more confident decisions.

The findings on intuition are published online in the journal Psychological Science. According to Joel Pearson, an associate professor of psychology at the University of New South Wales in Australia and the lead author of the study, the study shows that intuition does, indeed, exist and that researchers can measure it.

Through history many people have been talking about the importance of learning to trust your instincts several times, and I personally believe its one of the most important life skills. However, I think we still don’t listen to our gut feeling enough. Wait for it, because here are 10 of my favorite quotes on trusting your intuition.
