“There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen” ~ Anonymous
People talk about woman’s intuition, but…sorry ladies…men also have intuition. It is a work in progress for both sexes. Intuition is the appearance in the mind of actual information that did not come through the 5 senses (see, hear, taste, touch and smell). It is part of our original nature. There is no editing, no scanning, no thought process, it just comes. It is a direct knowing. Some people think of intuition as a “gut feeling” or a “hunch”, information that “just happens’.
It may present itself as pictures or a “soft voice”. It is different from our thoughts. This “soft voice” offers future unlimited possibilities. It is an energetic exchange. This intuition or “soft voice” never yells or pushes you to do something, it simply and quietly offers a direction. You always have “free will” to comply or ignore.
Intuition is different from instinct; as instinct is a reflex, something ingrained in you through heredity or education. For example, the flight or fight response or parents protecting their children.
Intuition involves holistic, subtle energy and expansion of consciousness. It is a direct knowing – without reason – direct from your inner being, metaphysical self. Here’s an example – True Story – A woman was driving home from a meeting 8 hours away. She is tired and the weather has become nasty – producing a huge thunderstorm, making it extremely hard to see through the windshield. Our driver hears a “soft voice” saying, “pull over and sleep”. She ignores the voice and it repeats itself several times … “pull over and sleep”. Finally she pulls over. She sleeps through the storm. Upon awakening, after the storm has passed, she drives on to find the bridge out about a mile down the road. Had she continued to drive through the heavy rain, she most probably would have driven off the bridge and been killed by the raging river below.
If intuition is part of our original nature, why do we not always listen to or follow those “hunches”? Sometimes we repress those feelings by feeling fatigued, burnt out, under tension, stress, anger or through a lack of trust.
Set your intention this week, to be open to listening and receiving your “soft voice”. It has your best interest at heart.

I am open to receiving my “soft voice” intuition.
I trust my intuition.
