HJ: When learning to differentiate between intuition and impulse, we must focus on feeling over thinking, which can be challenging for many of us. Growing up believing in the power of thought, logic and reasoning over all else has caused to detach from our intuition as it cannot be proven in commonly accepted scientific terms. We have grown distrustful of our own inner voice — our spiritual reasoning, if you will. Therefore, if we are to learn once again to trust our intuition, we must first learn how to differentiate it from impulsive, ego generated thought. This is simpler than it seems and only requires us to learn to tune into the patterns, feelings and signs that accompany intuitive guidance.
Joyce Hawkes in her beautiful piece below offers some timeless pieces of insight and wisdom into how to begin tuning into your intuition. In this case, it is less about describing exactly what one needs to do, but rather about being able to identify and recognize the signs of intuitive knowledge.
