How many times do we think to ourselves, “Oh I just knew that was the wrong decision, but I didn’t listen to my gut.” How many people have you dated (and continued to see) even though there was that internal voice that said, “This won’t work. This is the wrong person for you.”
Intuition is an amazing gift from the universe that we often choose not to accept. Human beings are so complex – and so amazing – that on a deep level, we know what is good for us and what isn’t likely to bring us happiness or goodness. All we need to do is really listen to this internal guide – who is always with us.
This article from the Huffington Post revealed that 30% of now-divorced women knew that they shouldn’t be marrying their husbands as they walked down the aisle. How does this happen? Maybe it’s our fears that override our intuition. One voice says “This isn’t right,” but an even louder one, rooted in insecurity, tells us, “You better get married now or it will never happen.”
I think taking the time to stop and just observe how we are feeling around someone should give us some clues when it comes to dating prospects. The same could apply to any situation, really – just taking a moment to use this valuable tool we all have but underutilize. It’s a place to start, at any rate.
What have you learned about intuition? Have you been able to tap into it – or do you ignore it?
