Intuition

Not to act on judgement, but to act on pure perception –

What is intuition?  

Intuition is a direct channel for a clear perception beyond conscious reasoning and subconscious programming.

The dictionary describe intuition as “thoughts and preferences that come to mind quickly and without much reflection.” It also refers to is as “to look inside” and “a quick and ready insight

Intuition is a way of knowing, or sensing without explanations. You may not consider yourself being particularly intuitive, yet at the same time trust your gut instinct. Do you ever listen to your heart when it is difficult for the analytical mind to choose?  listening to your heart symbolizes trusting your inner wisdom.

Intuition may start with sense-perception from where you shift beyond the analytical mind to bring forth ideas, images, possibilities, and insights that take you out of a blocked situation.  This process happens mostly without conscious knowing, yet any person can do it consciously.

In some situations a blend of intuition and analysis offers the best result.

How to use intuition in your life?

Open to the expanded wisdom beyond the deep subconscious mind –

When you are conscious your inner wisdom intuitively guides you towards abundance, love and happiness.  By adding self-awareness you already live the purpose of your life, clear on what to do and what you want.

What blocks intuition?

Emotional involvement and reasoning awakens the inner critic that separates you from your expanded Self.

Defining intuition by other experts

Jung defined intuition as “perception via the unconscious”

Intuition is the third of three stages of higher knowledge, coming after imagination and inspiration.  It is characterized by a state of immediate and complete experience of, or even union with, the object or person without loss of the subject’s individual ego.  – Rudolf Steiner

Intuition is a combination of historical (empirical) data, deep and heightened observation and an ability to cut through the thickness of surface reality. Intuition is like a slow motion machine that captures data instantaneously and hits you like a ton of bricks. Intuition is a knowing, a sensing that is beyond the conscious understanding — a gut feeling. Intuition is not pseudo-science.
Abella Arthur

Intuition may be defined as understanding or knowing without conscious recourse to thought, observation or reason. Some see this process as somehow mystical while others describe intuition as being a response to unconscious cues or implicitly apprehended prior learning.
– Dr. Jason Gallate & Ms Shannan

One thought on “Intuition

  1. Hey Jaco…thank you for this intuition clarification…I was wanting to ask you this last night and then I noticed this link when you showed me the site and realised I could check it out today.

    Spot on…and my issue had been to KNOW the difference between a lekka thought and what was intuition…because my rational/analytic kicks-in, for me, so quickly after any thought…I was finding myself always swinging into an endless loop of analysis to try and figure out whether something was intuitively felt, or just a thought!!

    Soon…of course, I have lost any original understanding and pretty much could not remember what the original thing was anyways!!

    From above…I take for now…your first definition of “Intuition
    Not to act on judgement, but to act on pure perception -“…the “not an act of judgement” stands out for me as I’m big on that one. And in typing this reply I am reminded that the moment I start to judge/question I am certainly not intuitive anymore…and importantly I am invoking the inner critic and then the wheels are completely off.

    Thanks again…cheers for now!
