Here are a few things I have noticed about intuition:
When I follow my intuition in small things, it becomes a habit and I learn to trust it more. That makes it easier to follow it in bigger things or when fear makes it more challenging.
Following my guidance or not is an experiment in either case. If I do it in this situation, what happens? If I don’t do it in this situation, what happens? Make a note of it.
When I am guided to do something I am scared to do, a few things may happen.
(a) I may follow it anyway, in spite of the fear.
(b) I may meet the fear, question the scary stories behind it, find kindness and love for the fear, and then see if it’s easier to act on my guidance.
(c) Or I may follow the fear and not the guidance.
In either case, I get to see what happens.
What I have noticed when I follow my guidance or inner knowing is that things tend to fall into place. And if I don’t, then the opposite often happens.
I am using intuition here synonymous with inner guidance, inner knowing, or the small quiet voice.
