“Trust your gut.” It’s good advice that you’ve probably heard a few times in your life. Maybe your mom said it when you were growing up. More likely you learned the lesson for yourself after you ignored your intuition and regretted it afterwards.
Listening to your intuition is a way of tapping into the wisdom of the universe. By “tapping in” I mean creating a connection to your psychic self and being aware of what your guides and angels are trying to tell you.
What if Your Intuition is Wrong?
Can your intuition lead you astray? The answer is complicated. Your psychic intuition is never wrong, however you are a human being, and all kinds of other influences can intrude on your inner knowing. When that happens, wires can get crossed.
Your psychic thoughts and your regular conscious thoughts can easily be mistaken for one another, because they both use your brain to communicate with you. You might be on the right path, being guided in the best possible way, and then your conscious brain jumps in with a thought that incorporates your fears, wishful thinking, and all kinds of outside influences. Suddenly you’re conflicted and unsure of what your intuition is trying to tell you.
Here’s an example of how your mind can send you mixed messages. Imagine you’re single, and out with friends. A stranger comes up and starts chatting with you. He buys you a drink. You can tell from your friend’s faces that they think he’s attractive, but there’s something about him that seems just a little off.
Your intuition is pinging, sending you warning bells, but your friends are across the bar, giving you the thumbs up. Also, it’s been months since you went on a date, and you worry that you’re being too picky and you’ll be alone forever!
Let’s dissect this situation. First of all, your intuition is telling you that this guy is not for you. But your own fear of being alone and your friends’ signs of approval are “fighting” with your intuition. You also have a conflicting thought that you’re being too guarded and that maybe YOU are the problem.
You start to doubt your intuition, and decide to take a chance on the handsome stranger your gut is warning you against. Weeks later, you realize your intuition was right!
How can you keep this from happening? You can start by working on identifying your inner voice.
How do you know if it’s truly your intuition that is guiding you?
Intuition can be developed and trained over time. You can learn to identify and trust your inner voice more and more as you gain more experience listening to it. Get in the habit of reflecting and meditating on the messages that the intuition is giving you, and keeping track of how often it’s right.
Keep an eye out for examples of outside influences, free will, and wishful thinking conflicting with what you KNOW in your gut.
Consider these scenarios:
You are sure that someone is going to be your future husband or wife because you feel this enormous infatuation for them, so you ignore the red flags your intuition is sending you. You trust your heart and not your intuition.
Maybe you DO meet your soulmate. You met someone and knew intuitively you were going to be with them forever. But for some crazy reason you treated them badly, or even cheated on them, and you broke up. You changed the future based on your actions.
Sometimes your timing is off. You may have felt you were going to pass a test and you actually failed it. That doesn’t mean that your intuition was wrong, You could take the test a second time and pass it. Your intuition didn’t give you specifics. It was showing you the end result.
Your intuition is a valuable tool.
Learning to recognize your intuitive voice is not always easy, but it’s worth it. The more tuned in you are to your intuition and your guides, the less likely you are to be influenced by other people, social media, or anyone who may not have your best interests at heart.
When you’re coming from this place of wisdom and knowing, it can bring a sense of peace, fulfillment and harmony in your life because you’re making choices that align with your own values. So be mindful of your inner wisdom. With practice, you can use it as a compass to guide you toward your true destiny.
