If you’re searching for the definition of intuition. You came to the right place. This is the definition that you can find in the Cambridge dictionary: “An ability to understand or know something immediately based on your feelings rather than facts”. Wordnik describes intuition as “the faculty of knowing or understanding something without reasoning or proof”.
Now you’re here, you probably also want to know how to unleash your intuition instantly. And that’s what I’ll describe in this article.
Intuition, it’s a word everyone knows, most know what it means, but very few are capable of explaining what it exactly is and especially, how it works and how to tap into it. Through my spiritual journey of over a decade, I’ve learned how to recognize how I can create a mental environment for myself in which I am more likely to recognize these surges of intuition.
The definition of intuition by Albert Einstein and Nikola Tesla
Nikola Tesla once said: “My brain is only a receiver, in the universe, there is a core from which we obtain knowledge, strength, and inspiration. I have not penetrated the secrets of this core, but I know that it exists.”
Nikola Tesla was an inventor and electrical and mechanical engineer who became famous for his advanced knowledge of electricity supply systems. And, he is not the only scientist who has referred openly and very clearly to the existence of something intangible that is connected to our brain, via which we can gain access to information that we should not have based on our personal history and education. It was Albert Einstein who said: “I believe in intuition and inspiration. At times I feel certain I am right while not knowing the reason.”
So, here you have two of the brightest minds of known human history that have greatly contributed to advanced theories that we still use today directly referring to intuition. They knew it was real but were not fully capable of explaining what it is, where it is, or how it works.
I don’t pretend to be smarter or know more than them. But, through my years of studying and practicing advanced spiritual beliefs and methods, I do believe that I have a pretty good understanding of how it could work. And lately, I’m also seeing more and more evidence of this showing up in my day-to-day life.
The source of intuition
So, it’s a common belief that we’re all connected to a source. Some call it the universe, some call it God, and others call it universal consciousness. While in fact, these are all very different from each other. I’ll talk about them separately in other videos. I’m mentioning them to make sure you understand what I’m talking about. I’m referring to that one place, where all our minds are joined in one. For now, it doesn’t matter what we call it. As long as you understand that this is the source of the entire physical universe and its inhabitants with its thoughts, feelings, and emotions we’re on the track.
Now, starting from this level of understanding, what do you think? Is it possible that this place disconnects from its creations? Let me phrase that more clearly; do you think it’s possible for this place or thing where everything we can think of is united, and from which all known creations are manifested can disconnect from the world it created?
Intuition cannot be disconnected
If you answered yes, you might as well move on to the next video. And if you answered no, maybe all of a sudden a light bulb switched on in your head. Let me put it into words for you. If this source cannot disconnect from its creations, its creations cannot disconnect from it either. Understanding this has huge implications. Because that means that there must be something that is preventing you from accessing it continuously.
Think about it, if the connection with this source of all-encompassing knowing is always there it means you should always be capable of receiving that inspiration and guidance that intuition is known for. However, for most people, it’s only a rare occasion when this happens.
Three reasons you don’t experience intuition
There are three main reasons why you don’t experience intuition more often.
- You are too busy with your life in the external world and don’t pay much attention to what is going on in your inner world. It’s fairly easy to understand that if your attention is virtually entirely focused on other creations from this source, then that is what you will encounter in your mind. The connection with your intuition is not lost, it’s just not found.
- You don’t trust your inner knowing and tend to be distracted and convinced by the practical knowledge you have obtained in your life through your upbringing, education, and other social interactions and life experiences. In these situations, you are aware of this inner voice that is whispering the words you need to hear directly to your consciousness. However, facts of this world win the battle, only to find out much later that it would’ve been so much better if you just listened to that silent voice from within.
- You try too hard to be intuitive. Remember that the connection is always there. You don’t need to do anything to make that happen. So, every time you try to establish a connection that in reality already exists what do you think will happen? Exactly, interference. It’s not your job to create the connection with your higher self, it’s your job to remove the obstacles and the interference that prevents you from tapping into that wireless high-speed connection with the source that created everything we know in this universe.
Anyone can unleash the intuition from within
You see, it’s pretty simple, right? Of course, in the hectic lives we are living nowadays it’s much easier said than done. But I do think that understanding that this connection is always there and waiting for you to simply listen to it makes it much less of a struggle and lowers the burden. Anyone can unleash his or her intuition. You just got to be willing to be quiet, to shift your focus inward, and close yourself off of the seemingly external trials and tribulations of the world.
And once you manage to be in silence with yourself, but also silence within yourself, without searching for an answer, without searching for a connection. Trust. Trust that you are indeed connected with this all-knowing source and trust in what it tells you. Start to act upon the inspiration that seems to be implanted in your soul in these moments.
And slowly, little by little, you will see how life seems to flow easier for you. Things seem to move effortlessly. Sometimes decisions that you feel inspired to take make no sense. But even when going against what you intellectually know, it just feels right. Don’t you want to live like this? Don’t you want to at least give it a try?
That’s what intuition feels like. It’s always there. And it’s one decision away.
