Walking the path of intuition
Normally we relate “intuition” with gut feeling or with a connection with our body or sensations. But intuition is both experienced in your body, emotions and thoughts.
Intuition is about contemplation, looking within, observing neutrally or getting in contact with. Most of us also connect it to an understanding, perspective, wisdom or explanation.
If you use your bodily, emotional or rational intuition, you often make sense of something, understand something or decide something. Our intuition makes us wiser and better at responding appropriately to situations.
But how do you connect with your different kinds of intuition, and how do you practice that connection or ability?
Your body, gut, somatic or sensory intuition is guiding you to avoid something or someone, to embarge on a journey or relationship and is more like a yes or no aspect of your way of acting. The source can very well be emotional or based on experience, but you will have a sensation of yes or no related to it. When mastering your somatic intuition, you read situations, energy and moods correctly.
Your heart, emotional or feeling intuition is guiding you to navigate professional and personal relationships. It will connect you with your values, your self-image and your degree of feeling recognized. When mastering your emotional intuition, you have a correct image of yourself, you are transparent and you build, maintain and end relationships for the right reason.
Your head, rational, logic or cognitive intuition is guiding you to be aware of the obstacles on your path and how to avoid them. It will connect you with your inner wisdom, clear sight, objectivity, and ability to speak the truth. When mastering your rational intuition, you see things clearly and make decisions based on informed analyses.
