“Trust your hunches. They’re usually based on facts filed away just below the conscious level.”
-Dr. Joyce Brothers
Do you believe in intuition and/or in the sixth sense? Even the most overt skeptics of pyschics and spirituality believe that we all have a modicum of a sixth sense.
The scepticism stems from the knowledge or lack thereof of what exactly intuition is.
It’s a common misconception that intuitions require some sort of telekinesis power or are based on a realm outside of our tangible world. In reality, intuition is just relying on an hypothesis that ostensibly has no sound logic. In laymen’s terms, it’s a gut feeling. We don’t know why we have it but something inside of us urges us to follow it.
But in recent years, psychologists have argued that intuitions are not soley based without reason. The reasons for feeling them are there, they’re just stored at a level which may not be obvious at first.
Keeping that in mind, it’s much easier to understand that we all have some level of intuitions. Those that follow them and nurture them seem to be more accurate and after a certain level, people mistake that for a psychic ability.
In reality, it’s just a matter of learning to understands our minds and instincts better and there after, refining what we learn.
