According to Google dictionary,
intuition is the ability to understand something immediately,
without the need for conscious reasoning.
In other words, it’s the gut feeling people are accustomed to experiencing
that influences their actions that doesn’t require logic.
Ever since the Age of Enlightenment, people are prone to dismiss ideas
without some sort of scientific research to support them.
Although science has opened the world
to a plethora of possibilities conveniences and truths,
ultimately, it still serves as only one type of perspective within the big picture.
Intuition has been given a bad rep for being too otherworldly
due to its psychic inclination.
However, the mysterious power of intuition is still undeniably beneficial,
that the US Navy began a program in 2012
to investigate how members of the military
can be trained to use their sixth sense
to help them during combat and other missions.
The goal of the program is to determine whether or not
there are techniques that can improve people’s intuition.
Don Tucker, psychology professor at the University of Oregon,
said the research could improve training not only in the military
but also in sports and many job settings.
Tucker also adds, the Spider Man had powers,
but maybe the rest of us can learn to use the experience
of the intuitive cognition we have.
We want to remind you not to underestimate the great capacities of intuition.
Here’s seven things highly intuitive people do differently.
Number one, you listen to your inner voice.
Gut feelings are experienced by many,
but what sets highly intuitive people apart from others
is that they actually listen to them.
Sophie Burnham, author of the Art of Intuition, writes,
everybody is connected to their intuition,
but some people don’t pay attention to it as intuition.
I have yet to meet a successful businessman that didn’t say
I don’t know why I did that, it was just a hunch.
Due to cultural bias,
intuition is commonly regarded as pseudoscience and hocus-pocus,
which can cause the majority of us
to ignore our own instincts that may have come in handy.
You don’t have to abandon logic altogether to rely on intuition,
but it can be incredibly beneficial
to learn how to achieve a balance between using both.
Number two, you practice mindfulness.
Highly intuitive people have a great knack for being self-aware.
This is nurtured from their habit of practicing mindfulness on a daily basis.
When you meditate, you’re able to alleviate yourself from mental fog
that leaves you clear minded and focus on your inner voice.
The purpose of mindfulness is to declutter your mind
from worry and any loud distracting thoughts
that make it hard for you to tap into your inner self.
This boosts your knowledge of how to operate and, as a result,
you can recognize and use your intuition
without having to attach the “whys” behind your actions.
Number three, you have a creative outlet that you often use.

Musicians, writers, artists, entrepreneurs and dancers
are able to sustain their creativity because they follow their intuition.
Instead of being swept by fear and wondering how they will achieve their dreams,
they never stop believing in themselves.
Nor do they question whether or not it makes sense to go after them.
It’s only natural for them to follow their heart.
It may sound incredibly naive and overly simple to some people,
but perhaps it’s because it’s been a long time
since they listen to their own intuition.
Intuitive people follow their creative endeavors,
regardless of the judgments they received.
Because of them, it feels more foolish to hold themselves back.
Where there is intuition there is also the will to create.
Number four, you enjoy solitude.
Highly intuitive people don’t mind finding a quiet corner
away from the busy world.
In fact, they enjoy their solitude
because it gives them an opportunity to listen to their intuition.
当你面对堵车 紧张 责任
It’s hard to locate it when you’re stifled by traffic,
stress and everyday responsibilities
that make it hard for your intuition to roam free and simply be.
This is why highly intuitive people also have a tendency to daydream.
It releases everyday tensions and clears your mind,
so that you can connect with yourself on a more authentic level.
Number five, you are observant of your immediate environment and those around you.
As a result, you are able to connect deeply with others.
When you pay attention to the small details
in your environment and of the people in your life,
you can learn to understand how and why things work.
This is how your empathy grows
when you see how other people are affected by different situations.
And you can learn to take on more than one perspective
when considering why people are prone to acting a certain way.
It’s helpful to you. Because, in turn
you understand how to tune into your own emotions.
As a result, you can form deep connections with others.
Some people may get the impression that you can read their mind.
But in truth, you have allowed your empathy to help your use your intuitions
that lets you know exactly what they need.
Number six, you pay attention to your dreams
and subtle messages from the universe.
Your dreams and intuition come from the same place which is your unconscious mind.
When you’re highly intuitive
you may often pay attention to calm the themes of your dreams
that can be telling you something.
In addition, you also notice subtle messages the universe may be giving you,
from songs that play every time you turn on the radio,
quotes that you come across in books,
or the notes you receive in fortune cookies.
在这些情境中 你能感受到的越多 细微差别越大
They can all be incredibly nuanced the more you can make sense of these situations.
Number seven, you don’t overwork yourself,
nor do you attach yourself to negative emotions or situations.
When you experience strong negative emotions, they can cloud your intuition.
In fact, according to Burnham,
when you find yourself feeling depressed or highly angry,
this may cause your intuition to fail you.
This is why highly intuitive individuals don’t overwork themselves.
Because they understand that they need to feel at peace
in order to nurture that special trait.
As a result, people with good intuition form healthy habits
when they learn how to find balance both in their lives and within themselves.
