Trust your instincts and listen to your inner-voice — it's trying to protect you.

“You have permission to walk away from anything that doesn't feel right. Trust your instincts and listen to your inner-voice — it's trying to protect you.” ― Bryant McGill

We ALL have it - and It is ALWAYS there! However, many of us have become accustomed to ignoring and disregarding it - often filled with that moment of overwhelming “oh no, I knew it” regret, when we realise that what our intuition had TRIED to tell us was absolutely 110% correct and we are now sitting in a position, or with an outcome that we would rather... have not.

That flittering little voice and fleeting emotion that makes a brief appearance before “the mind” sets in… THAT IS INTUITION - and it ALWAYS know what is best for you!

Children are amazing at this! Have you ever watched how a child will “study” somebody new. They could literally bore holes through you with the intensity of their stares… They are looking at the REAL you. They don’t have the same level of mental noise that adults do and when a child doesn’t warm to someone naturally after a relative amount of time in their company (the same goes for dogs and cats) I will ALWAYS take note! Children trust their instincts! And for good reason!

We ALL did at one point in our lives… we have just forgotten how... We need to rekindle this habit, so that we can once again learn to make decisions which are driven by what feels right and not because of what is socially acceptable or what we feel obligated to do. Trust your intuition and follow your truth! ALWAYS!

Until next time...

Great words @jaynie. I am 'aware' of my gut feelings, and I 'hear' that still, small voice, and I think I do a good
Job of following their leads, but not always, often with disastrous results.

Exactly right!

In self defense classes, I’ve learned this very thing can save your life. Women especially tend to trust others before themselves. Listening to the intuition that a situation is dangerous or a person does not have good intentions is a behavior we have to re-learn.

I actually find myself once again reverting back to my childhood inner voice of listening to that inner voice. I more often than not find myself guarded around people like I was when a child. During most of my adult years, I was more trusting of people and it bit me sometimes. Not sure if it is okay or not, but I find that inner voice rarely led to the wrong decision.
