I enjoy the fine humour of Albert Einstein: “I believe in intuitions and inspirations. …I sometimes feel that I am right. I do not know that I am.”
Isn’t that how intuition often works? You feel it, but you don’t know that it’s true. That’s because intuition runs mostly in your heart and in your gut, not in your thinking mind.
I remember a few years back I turned my walks into an intuition game. I would leave the house and right from the get-go let my intuition choose whether to turn right or left or go straight ahead. I did so in order to train my ability to hear or feel my intuitive hits. Let me tell you I ended up in places I had never seen before despite the fact of living in the same area for years on end. One time I ended up in a tiny café I had never been to that had the best croissants I had ever had outside of Paris! To make intuition a game allowed the potentially wrong choice to not have any great consequences. That in turn allowed me to follow it without the expectation of always getting it right let alone always knowing the “Why”.
Trusting my intuition is key. The more I trust it the more it is present in my life. Learning to know how intuition works for me is like learning to speak its language; a skill that is so very important in these days. Now let me end with another quote that perfectly illustrates this point:
“Intuition becomes increasingly valuable in the new information society precisely because there is so much data.” John Naisbitt
