3 Practical Ways Your Intuition Communicates Vital Information to Your Attention
Intuition is hardwired so that information you need for your safety and survival comes to your attention. Your intuition is the technology through which this vital information is communicated to you.
Your brain is constantly taking in information about your surroundings. The amount of information that continuously streams in from your environment is enormous and you’re consciously unaware of most of it. Think about all that goes on in the brain to enable you to drive a car. Not only are you processing information about you’re own driving but you’re also assessing how other people are driving and anticipating what their next move might be so that you can avoid an accident. And this is just a snippet of what your brain is processing at one time.
If you’re brain didn’t filter out 99.9 percent of what it took in you would not be able to function. The sheer volume of information would overwhelm the conscious mind. A good example of something similar is when your computer has too many programs and windows open and it “freezes” because it simply cannot process all the information streaming in at the same time.
3 Examples of How Your Intuition Communicates Vital Information to Your Attention:
1. Knowing sensation. You’re walking home on a city street after dark and suddenly think there’s someone behind you. You turn and see someone about a half a block back. You never heard any footsteps so how did you “know?” You’re body is a walking talking receiver (and sender) of information. While you don’t have “eyes on the back of your head” you are always picking up signals from your environment. Though you weren’t conscious of this information it was scanned and filtered and this potential threat to your safety was sent to your awareness. This “knowing” came to you so that you could consciously assess the situation and determine what action was necessary to protect yourself.
2. Gut feeling. While you’re driving your brain is busy taking in massive amounts of information from your environment and scanning it to see if any danger exists that you ought to be made aware of. Most of this information is filed beneath the level of your awareness. However if this information sets off alarms about your safety a signal is sent using the technology of your intuition to get your attention.
Say you’re driving in the fast lane and a car speeds up behind you. A surge of fear grips your gut and you pull into the slower lane to let the car pass. Something about this driver alarms you. You let this car pass you and go as far away from your car as it can. Not long afterward you hear a popping sound and see the car veering off to one side. One of it’s tires blew out. Luckily you were no longer near the vicinity of this car or you may have been involved in an accident.
3. Dreams. You’ve been experiencing an annoying post nasal drip and related cough to clear your throat that’s gone on for months. After having used every natural remedy you can think of to clear it up you finally go to the doctor who diagnoses you with a sinus infection. The infection clears up after taking the prescribed round of antibiotics but soon returns. The darn infection is confounding you! You have a “nagging” feeling that something else is going on.
You have a vivid dream about that you’re crying about the loss of someone close to you. In the dream they come to you and say, “Please stop crying. I’m okay.” You reply, “I can’t. I’ve suffered so much loss.”
When you wake up the dream haunts you. You Google the meaning for dreams about loss and somehow your search leads you to Louise Hay’s meaning of illnesses. It hits you as you read that the meaning of post nasal drip is “inner crying” due to loss. You lost someone you loved 9 months ago and that’s when the symptoms began. You break down in tears and the crying goes on and on. You acknowledge that you still feel the pain of this terrible loss. You begin to apply EFT over the course of the next week to the loss of your loved one to clear the grief and finally the annoying post nasal drip clears up.
You’re intuition was communicating to you through your body’s symptoms. You didn’t allow yourself to fully process and grieve for the loss you suffered so your body was crying on the inside. Now that you’ve dealt with it you’re okay again.
Thank goodness for the filtering system we have and the technology of intuition to bring this vital information forward when we need it.
