In the definition of intuition, we said that instinct is a prerecorded behavior, according to our species and our needs. Things like eating, protecting ourselves, sex, running away from danger etc. are part of our DNA.
Intuition, on the other side, is information that comes out of nowhere.
Well, it’s sure not nowhere but we don’t know exactly the source.
The most possible explanation is that we are all connected to one mind and this mind gives us information that others know already. And this mind exists outside time so it knows what happened and what will happen.
The big question is: If the mind knows what is going to happen, this will happen anyway so why bother?
But according to quantum mechanics, we live in multiple realities, and if this is true, when we solve a problem (with the help of intuition), we don’t have to live in the future of the reality that this problem exists.
Yes, I know that it sounds silly, if you are not familiar with spirituality and you believe only to what you see…
But if you think spirituality is nonsense, explain to me the intuitive idea you had that saved your life, since everyone has similar stories.
Which brings us nicely-nicely to the combination of intuition with instinct.
It’s quite simple actually. When the Tsunami hit Indonesia in 2004, many animals ran from the areas around the beaches to the higher places, like mountains and hills. Some people did that too.
This is not pure instinct, because panic comes when the danger is there, in front of you.
It's not pure intuition either, because intuition gives you an information, doesn’t make you run away from something in panic.
In reality is a combination of those two, intuition gives you an idea about what is going to happen, and your instinct takes over and makes your legs run.
Just like you hit the brake of the car before the danger (a big truck violating a stop or traffic light) is there, and make everyone behind you get mad at you, until they see the danger.
Intuition, whatever it is, is a powerful tool, and even if you don’t know where it comes from, it can still make your life easier if you follow its instructions. And it can be combined with all other tools we have, inspiration, common sense, survival instinct etc.
The secret is to remove all the fake programs that make us ignore or confuse intuition with something else.
