Belly brain as an emotional memory
Intuition combines the mind with our gut feeling. The so-called abdominal brain is a central collection point of conscious and unconscious impulses of our body, a kind of emotional memory. Emotions and the associated physical sensations shape our lives and always accompany us through the day.
Positive experiences are associated with pleasurable body sensations and negative ones usually with discomfort. These processes are sometimes conscious to us, but mostly they run unconsciously in the background and are stored in the body cells as on a hard disk. In similar situations, they provide us with a wealth of experience from which we can draw, provided we are able to decode these messages.
Stress and hustle and bustle are the greatest intuition killer
In order to come into contact with our intuition, an awareness of the inner perception of our perception is important as well as a relaxed basic attitude. Stress and hustle and bustle deprive us of our intuition, they are the greatest intuition killer. Just today, where we are constantly online and accessible at any time, there is little time left for us to get in contact with ourselves and to explore our desires.
We make decisions with our heads and realize later that the stomach rebels because the situation does not feel good. But if we had listened more to our needs expressed in the form of emotions in the body, we would probably have made a different decision. It is precisely this approach which presents us with new problems. Because our health depends essentially on the ability to receive the signals of our bodies and take them seriously.
Intuitively is also mostly empathic
Those who can not decode their own emotions or ignore them permanently may have to pay a high price later. These people often suffer from chronic gastrointestinal complaints. Contemporaries, however, who stay in touch with their own intuition, live healthier, experience themselves as self-determined and are more willing to engage with their counterpart.
And those who intuitively get in touch with their fellow human beings signal that the other is important to them. This creates a relationship of trust. A lack of intuitive perception, on the other hand, often leads to a lack of empathy in the form of appreciation and encounter at eye level. This, in turn, is important not only among friends, but also among colleagues and everyone involved in a team. So if we can cultivate better access to our inner wisdom, it will benefit not only the individual but also, in a large context, entire companies. It is exciting to observe that the “soft topics” such as intuition in business are becoming increasingly socially acceptable.
The magic moment of decision making
Contrary to popular belief, intuition can be spontaneous, but it doesn't have to be. Decisions have to be made on the spot. It depends on speed, on the first impulse. Others, on the other hand, need time, they have to mature. There it does Senseto interpose a relaxation exercise, a walk or a creative activity.
Instead of a pros and cons list, you can consciously switch to the intuition mode by looking at rational emotions as well as the related emotions. Set a time window to prevent stress and take notes. Puzzling the possibilities together until a coherent overall picture results. Then switch to another job and check after a short time, at the latest after 24 hours, if your decision still feels rational and emotionally good for you. If that's the case, you've made it. If not, restart.
With some practice and confidence in your own resources, your intuitive potential will open up to you in a very simple and practical way, which works really well in everyday life.
Suddenly, you discover two instances you can rely on: the head and the abdomen. An additional orientation has not harmed anyone yet. On the contrary, it can be a valuable compass in the self-guidance and leadership of others. I wish you a lot of success and pleasure in trying it out!
