Will you always Trust your instinct??

May 10, 2016 12:32pm CST
Intuition is a peculiar way of feeling something without being able to explain why. I always feel confused whether to use my common sense or to trust my instinct. Later kicks myself for not following what my heart said. People always says to trust your gut feeling and your inner voice. But it is sometimes difficult to take decision based on the unknown feeling. Have you people ever felt the same way. Do you always take decision based on your instinct.

Mine has never steered me wrong so far. I feel at times to do things differently but I rather be safe then sorry.

There are situations when I have to rethink before following my instincts, those moments when fear seems to speak louder than my mind. But in most cases, my instincts works positive for me.

Yeah it's better to manipulate before taking a decision.

I prefer not to trust my instincts because I have a bad experience with it and have left me with no choice lots of times.

Not always but sometimes. I'm not really a religious person but I've read a book that says our instinct is God's way of communicating to us. Like one day, when my instinct told me i shouldn't drive, that very day an accident happened at the route i usually took. Good thing i listened to my instinct.

I do listen to my instincts but since I am not perfect I also pray after I get a feeling about something. I ask God to lead me in the right direction.

No. I decide based on facts or pieces of evidence on hand and not on my instinct.

My intuition foresees things, my head takes decisions

No and you would think by now in life I would have learned to follow my instinct.

If I'm in a situation where a decision must be made quickly because of the urgency, you may just react. I guess that's what's called trusting your instinct. In most cases though, when you think about it after the fact, you weren't really just trusting your instinct or intuition. You were summoning your knowledge, your experience, your wit, your abilities and capabilities, etc. All of that probably gelled together and moved you in the right direction. But happened so fast, people might say it was your instinct. Humans are intelligent beings. Animals act by instinct. Humans use intelligence, intuition, and instinct. And some humans also hope and pray for Divine intervention.

I have learned trusting my gut is better in the long run cause that 'voice' speaks without ego or external influences . . .
