The Power of Intuition my Perspective

Updated on April 15, 2013

Constant Feelings



What is your intuition and how does it help you in your day to day life? Are you ignoring your inner voice? Are you being told your feelings don't matter or they are not valid? Some things are true whether others know them or not. Your body knows you better than you know yourself,but it is up to you to listen to what your body is telling you and then trust the information. Information that can not be trusted or used falls by the waste side. Taking time out for yourself and your thoughts is a great way to listen to what your body is telling you.

It will be ok


How are you feeling?

This question can be interpreted in two ways. Most of the time it's interpreted in terms of health, if a person is physically sick. However, why doesn't anyone ask about how a persons mental state is doing? Mentally and emotionally you could be going through hell and no one would even know it. Why because we have to hide our emotions so we don't seem weak.We have to put on a happy face even when were feeling sad inside. It's not fair but this is the way that our world operates,feelings simply don't matter in the grand scheme of things. So what do we do instead? We bury it, we eat it away with junk food,we drink it away with alcohol,we spend it away buying frivolous things we don't need. All so we don't have to feel,all so we can silence the pain inside. It's not fair and we have to find better ways to get our feelings out in a constructive way. Your intuition can help you find a way that works best for you.

Mood shifts


How does that make you feel?

You now realize something is wrong but you can't pinpoint the actual problem. What happen in your life that gave you that feeling of emptiness? What did someone say to you that has cuased you to lash out at others? Writing your thoughts down is a great way to release some of your pinned up energy and it can also help you come to the conclusion of what is bothering you. Here is where our intuition is extra important, when you feel anxious, or sad, or depressed or anything that is your body telling you something is wrong. When we bump our knee, how do we know it has happened? We know we bumped our knee because we can feel it and most likely see a bump forming. The same happens to us on the inside,when our feelings hurt,there is still a pain associated with it,yet we ignore this pain because we can not see it. We also ignore because our mind is telling us we don't feel it. Sometimes our mind will tell us we can't feel it right now, because we have more important matters to attend. We have been programmed to sweep our issues under the rug,but nothing gets resolved that way. Eventually a wound needs air to heal or it will take longer to heal. Take the same approach with your internal feelings, let them out as much as possible that way they aren't festering like a bad sore.

Happiness lives within


Out of your control

Some times we tend to worry ourselves with things that our out of our hands. We mull over situations that we don't have the power to change. Letting go is a great way to release your worries. You are not responsible for everyone else's problems,nor do you have to be superman or superwoman everyday of your life. Life is best when people can relax in it,and be grateful for what we do have. If you want to be happy and bring happiness in your life,just be. Be as happy as you can,for as long as you can. Allow yourself to be sad when something sad happens,but you don't have to be sad for long periods of time. Changing your perspective on situations is a great way to handle any bumps in the road that may occur. You may not get the promotion you want this year,but at least you still quality for it next year,and that's something to look forward to. Focus on the things that you can change,no point in trying to change others. People change when they have the need to,and when their ready. Sometimes nothing we say or do will change the mind of another.Realizing controlling and manipulating people is not an option. It may work temporarily but when the other party catches on, it will only cause resentment. If a situation is undesirable let it go,and see if that doesn't lift a weight for you. Have you ever played a scenario out in your head,that hadn't happened yet? Then once it actually happens, it happens just as you foresaw it,how amazing is that? That's your insight and intuition giving you a glimpse of how powerful you can be,if you just listen to it.


Talk to someone

Usually we all have someone to confide in,but sometimes because of bias opinions they are not the best people. Try talking to someone who has a neutral opinion on the subject matter. Talking to someone can help you release a lot of feelings that you may have been holding in. It also may help you get a different perspective on things. Also, another reason we tend not to seek help, is because of fear of rejection. When someone doesn't understand us they can often pass judgement or label a person as weird. Maybe it's not that you are weird, you are unique in your own right,embrace the person you know yourself to be. Worry less about what others think of you, it really is none of your business what others are thinking about you. When we silence the judgement and bad self talk,we open the door for our intuition to shine through.

Does it matter to you?

Do you trust your intuition?

      Thanks so much for reading this hub for me. I had to revise a few things and change my title since someone already had it. Writing at 3am will make you see things that aren't there. lol I'm glad you got an understanding despite the errors.

      Hello rainpurplewine,

      Welcome to HubPages!

      I agree with you that one has to allow time to listen to one's body. There is indeed a mind-body connection that supports wellness. If a doctor addresses only the physical symptoms w/o understanding a person's emotional state, treatment will be incomplete. As you mention here, talking w/ friends and journaling are excellent ways to vent and express fears. Both help greatly in putting things into perspective and allow clear ways to solve problems. Intuition also protects us from danger, and we should heed our instincts! Thank you for sharing! (check the spelling in your title :)

      My best,
