I had a feeling about it – A gut instinct

By | February 14, 2017

Many a times, we always have a “This is it” feeling, a gut instinct. And often it works out. We are unaware of the reasons behind our gut instincts. They are felt at once.

Instincts are not something in our brain; they are some feelings. In fact, instincts play tricks in our intelligent brain making us cautious on some unfamiliar things, making us conscious on the environment.

They can’t be called as some random thoughts; instead they are some scientific feelers.  It’s actually, every cell in our body thinking alike and working together.

“List every time your gut instinct helped you.” I read somewhere like this. Sounds good, no?

So how do you exercise your intuitive senses to make it sharper?

How do you decide which gut instincts to believe, supporting your feelings with facts?

      They say gut is the brain in our stomach. I agree with you R, we should listen to our intuition, it’s always right. 🙂

          Yes aks. Second but it controls all the functions of our body like breathing, heart beats, healing a wound and of course, warns us of a danger or any bad situation that we might fall in. It is also known as the subconscious mind.

    gut feeling is when the body and the heart is raring to go and do something when the mind is lethargic and uses its excuses full of buts…which also means if you ignore too many guts, you will be left smoldering with buts

    i think you must read the book “secret” though im not a big fan of that book but since you mentioned instinct here i felt may be u will like it.
    sometimes its a belief that you believe strongly in your deeds , your thoughts and universe will somehow adjust itself for you .. they say your thoughts become your reality

    That ‘gut feeling’ is being connected to the all. Your true self. Some call it intuition, higher self, or subconscious. When you are connected to it, you will find out it is always right. You are not a soul in a body, you are a body in a soul. I sharpen it with a healthy dose of nature. Nature is the living subconscious.

      I like that nature is the living subconscious. There are many things, many signals which you can catch from nature

        These are all signals you are giving yourself. The ancients referred to this as magic. No one knows how to look for the signals anymore. Everyone is to far into the left brain.

    I tend to follow my instincts quite a lot. I believe whether correct or not, one must honor their inner voice, as it ensures that there are no regrets and external blaming factors.

    I have been bad to myself over the years but that is because probably i am not a strong person .. for having others dictate what i should do or done..

    Neverthless its my fault maybe i will learn one day… So I am the last one to say anything … gut feelings do always tend to work out the right ones but in life there are other things which sometimes overpower one.. and hindsight is a good thing .. if only…

      I can understand your words bikram. It’s upto the person. And definitely not all of us can feel that gut instincts and even if felt, not necessary to be in sync with that..

    After reading your post Akhila I could relate to the book I have read “The Secret” by Rhonda Byrne. Am a great fan of that book and believe that whatever you think without any doubts the universe makes it happen. It’s true it happens when you are very sure. Read that book it is a very postive book.

    We all originally were like any animal that had to use instincts to survive. Some folks still have the ability (and good sense) to continue to use this natural/innate characteristic. I think it’s part of us, but some just don’t pay attention to it anymore….

    Yes. It’s the collective consciousness, a result of cells thinking alike and deciding alike..

    Gut feeling, subconscious, intuition…. whatever we call them, they are there…driving us to what is the best thing to do. Rarely failing us and in a way, I think our surroundings help a great deal to shape these feelings.

      Yes.. There’s a lot to observe from the environment.. I agree with you totally as nature is the best signal provider.

    I trust the guts when I am confident enough. For example,if I have a doubt about something I would give it a thought a bit later. If I strongly feel that it’s fishy, I just don’t approach it. And untill now, it has turned out to be beneficial to me. So yes I trust my instincts.

      actually guts wont allow you to take a second thought..if you do, it’s not a gut.. It’s just a random thought of which you are not so confident

    I like to refer to my gut instinct as my “God Conscious” – it has never steered me wrong when I have listened to it.
