Why Intuition is often called a Gut Feeling
Intuition is often considered a special gift. It is that inner voice that enables us to come to a conclusion instantaneously without realising why. Often it is related to the phrase ‘It’s a gut feeling,’ or ‘I feel it in my bones’ being used to describe how you feel about making a decision or doing something which you can’t explain.
What is Intuition or Intuitive Energy Information?
There are several types of ways we receive intuitive energy information which comes from our soul, God, subconscious, Life Source or what terminology you want to use. Intuition comes to us through several means and includes mental thoughts, emotional guidance, visual signs and physical sensations.
• Mental intuition involves inner thoughts and knowings, or an inner voice that seems to come from nowhere. In one of my experiences, this form of intuition was so strong that I acted on it immediately, without questioning or analysing it.
• Emotional intuition may make us feel emotionally uncomfortable or different when there is no obvious reason to feel that way. It is sometimes described as the ‘vibes’ we pick up about a person, or the ‘feel’ when you walk into a room after an argument has taken place. You require good emotional awareness to understand this form of information because we often just put it down to nothing, or discard it as irrelevant.
• Visual intuition happens when we experience visions, dreams or figments of the imagination. These can be literal or symbolic and can have a major effect on us, as they seem to be telling us something because they continually play in our head. Visual intuition can also be brushed off as ‘just a dream’ or thinking ‘that was weird’, without the understanding to it. This form of intuition is the most common, although it is probably the least recognised or acted upon.
• Physical intuition involves body sensations such as muscular tension or relaxation, a change in a heartbeat’s rhythm, or a tingling sensation or feeling. This is another strong way of receiving information from your intuition; unfortunately, many people try to work out the sign or information as if it was a physical problem.
Chakra Energy Information
You receive the energy information via your seven chakra energy centres. Below is an image of your aura (the white/pink colour on the outside) with the seven chakra points (colours in the middle) which start from the bottom or the base chakra in red as number 1.
These spinning vortexes of energy are what we receive and release our energy information through. The lower the number the closer to the physical realm the higher the number the closer to the spiritual realm.
7 = Crown display here in white
6 = Third Eye display here in purple
5 = Throat is blue
4 = Heart is green
3 = Solar Plexus is yellow
2 = Sacral is orange
1 = Base is red
This image shows the different sizes, shapes and depth of colour for each chakra. I started doing chakra readings to help people with different situations they were experiencing using a biofeedback software system call Aura Video. It shows you how scattered your energy is and even what type of behaviours are coming from that chakra region. It also shows you how open you are to receiving information via that chakra.
The information you will receive via that particular chakra is:
7 = Crown Information where you do not hesitate to act. Lifesaving. Acting on it regardless
6 = Third Eye See it in dreams, visualisation or happening around you. Witnessing constantly
5 = Throat Speak the words without knowing where they came from. Verbalise it
4 = Heart Feeling it in your heart area or sending it from there. Loving it whole heartily
3 = Solar Plexus Information about you, your decisions or your life. Internalising information
2 = Sacral Information about others that are close physically or emotionally. Externalise it
1 = Base Basic survival situations such as finance, food & procreation. Experiencing it
When people refer to a gut feeling often they are experiencing intuitive energy information via their Solar Plexus if it is about them, their life choices or decisions. If they experience that ‘Gut Feeling’ below their belly button they the information coming through is about someone else external to them.
When you get a gut feeling about something really focus on where the information is coming from. Is it from your Solar plexus that is above your belly button making it information you need to use for yourself. Or is it below your belly button and that information may make someone else’s life happier not necessarily what you should be doing or acting upon.
Of course the information is strongest at the top of the head and mellows out towards the bottom. However the information at the bottom is easier to experience and understand than the ones at the top. You know when you have feelings for someone when the base chakra starts to tingle. Hehehe
Further examples of how to utilise your chakra information
7 = Crown Know it. This example surprised me the most because I didn’t even know what I was doing. Waiting at a ‘T’ intersection I noticed there wasn’t any cars around and proceeded to pull out. All of a sudden my foot went to the brake and jammed it on. I was so shocked because there was no thought process just action and I had no idea why. Seconds later a car flew over the hill with all four wheels off the ground and flew by me. I would have been killed without a doubt if it wasn’t for this intervention.
6 = Third Eye See it. Information coming through this chakra is very strong in people who are clairvoyant, physic, card readers or prophesise. Those who ‘see’ using their third eye. You will receive information through your dreams or when you notice something constantly. It is like when you dream about that new car and don’t see many of them until you purchase your own. Then you see it everywhere. You are tuning into your third eye and receiving information via it.
5 = Throat Speak it. This is very strong with people who channel information from other realms. My experience of this, apart from channelling, was when I was answering a question from someone about me leaving my business, home and family to go to university in another part of the state. I don’t know where the information came from but I just spoke it out loud and with some much confidence it surprised me. I remember thinking ‘where did that come from’ and yet six months later it came true exactly how I responded.
4 = Heart Love it. For those who have fallen in love you know what the feeling is like when the information come through this chakra. However I tend to use this chakra more than the others because I deliberately opened it to help guide and support people with the correct intention. This doesn’t mean I am always soft and fluffy (for want of another word). It means I am honest at all times with heartfelt sincerity.
3 = Solar Plexus Internalise it. I use this chakra specifically to ask questions about myself or my life. If I have a decision to make I focus on this chakra as it help me to internalise the information to determine what is best for me. This chakra is all about how we value, look at or respond to ourselves and our actions.
2 = Sacral Externalise it. I use this chakra like the Solar Plexus except when other people may require assistance. The information I receive this way is always for their benefit not necessarily for mine. Often we can get confused as to the right information for the right person and blur it with our own thoughts. True information via me to them or how I should be around them.
1 = Base Experience it. As I explained earlier the base information is the closest to what we require in our physical world. If you are physically attracted to someone you will feel it in the base chakra and as you get to know them you will experience intuitive information about them in your Sacrum. Then your Solar Plexus will switch on to see how that person fits into your life before the heart chakra fully opens.
