Hi gettingthere,

I believe strongly in intuition and think that if most of us actually listened to that "gut feeling" there'd be a lot less suffering in the world.

A great book that you may find interesting in is "The Gift of Fear" by Gavin DeBecker. It talks about intuition being the body's natural alarm system.

I found in very interesting.

If you ever get to read it, I'd be interested in hearing what you think.

Take care,
Lolli

Wow, I was just asking the same question on line last night. I have this also but with me its that some how I know what has happend or what is going on with out someone telling me. Sometimes I know when someone has gotten hurt who lives far away from me. part of me thinks GOD must be telling me these things, actually I think that probably it. GOD has given me the ability to just know things.

Its can be pretty exuasting at times especially when you know something but you can't get the other person to listen to you.

I do sometimes get that "gut feeling." When I was younger, I would dismiss it, thinking, "Why judge until you really know?" I learned the hard way that, while our intuition isn't always right, it often is.

Many years ago, there was a very friendly man at my church. He was a doctor, was married to another doctor and had a nice family with 3 boys. They were originally from a foreign country (I won't name it) and had settled in here, becoming pillars of the community.

Everytime he approached me on a Sunday, I got a creepy feeling. I chastised myself believing I was just being prejudice, due to his national origin. I dismissed the feeling.

He told me he was forming a missionary society to minister to his native country and wanted me to serve on the board since I was a young person (back then) and he wanted a mixture of ages and experienes.

He invited me to attend a meeting. When I arrived at his house, no one else was there. I thought that was odd. Yet, he had literature he'd printed up and explained his plans. Everything seemed on the "up and up."

Shortly after that, he was arrested for importing sex slaves from his native country and selling them in the U.S. It is hard to imagine that such things are still happening today, but they are!!! He was found out when his own sex slave escaped from the basement of the family's home and fled to the police with her tale.

The missionary society was a cover up for this slave trade. Innocent women were brought to America, believing they were to be trained as missionaries, only to find they were being sold as slaves.

At his trial, I was supeonaed along with several other members of the church, who were named by the doctor as board members of the missionary society. We all testified that we knew nothing of what was really going on. It must have been pretty clear to the court that we were all innocent.

Imagine! We could have been implicated as accessories and convicted along with the doctor.

That taught me a lesson! If someone seems slimy, he probably is and if something doesn't seem right, it probably isn't!!!

Oh yeah, I believe we all have a bit of sixth sense. It is just more developed in some than in others. I also had that experience of telephoning a friend who was heavy on my mind, only to find that her husband was taking her into the emergency room with kidney stones.

I have other experiences like that too.

I always think about animals for instance, they survive on instinct. Wonder why the animals knew to go to higher ground before the Tsunami and we did not?

Our ancestors relied heavily on instinct and gut feeling. It naturally exists in all of us.

Generally, if you have that feeling, there is something to it. A wise person always told me "where there is smoke, there is usually fire"!

Hi,
Oversome's "instinct of animals" angle caught my interest here and reminded me of the first Jean Auel novel. Have you read "Clan of the Cave Bear"? It was about a modern-age child found by a clan of Neanderthals that adopted her and raised her in their ways. They were very primitive, and their instincts were what allowed them to survive. But the child's lineage was more intelligent and had replaced reason for instinct, so she never fit in. The book was very good. (The subsequent movie wasn't.)

The idea that instinct is somehow innate for us still is pretty neat. I have fairly good "radar" for when things aren't right and need attention. Maybe it is just a matter of "paying attention" more to certain readable clues. Some people are less aware of them because they are occudpied with other thoughts.

Again, its good to know that I am not alone. I have these thoughts and I feel strongly that I am right on cue. What boggles me is that no one feels or sees things the way I do. This is regards to my work place and the evil that lurks within. It seems as though she is free to cause problems and no one does anything about it. I speak my mind and thoughts and I am the one who is causing the problem. If this is all over the place its because I am running late and must start my day. I will talk more indepth about it later. I hope you get my jest of it. I guess what I am trying to say is I see it in her. Hurt

Well, the one thing about the work environment is that there is always politics. Realizing these politics and knowing how to "play" within its parameters (for the most part) could be a matter of survival.

I would bet that most of the people at your work realize the problems, but they work within the confines of the work parameters.

hi brynnie thanks once again for your input,i havent read that book b ut sounds good,i think your right about paying attention to more readable clues,maybe thats why some of us are more aware than others because some of us fail to see the clues that are there for us too see .....if you see what i mean ............gettingthere

Intuition is good. But sometimes I find I react on my intuition instead of waiting. If I overreact, then I feel regret.I try to listen to intuition and don't always trust it. I am working paying closer attention to intuition, that gut feeling and doing something about it instead of ignoring it.

Yes, gettingthere, I agree about being able to read the clues that are there.

When you encounter someone who is still dealing with his/her difficult past and has not yet learned how to overcome some of those issues, you can see the self-preservation they need to maintain at all costs ( real or unreal) that results in unethical behavior and threatens your own boundaries.

My own boundaries fly up so that I tend to shut up and get very busy to avoid conflict, and that works to my advantage as I come out looking like I have a great work ethic ........ but when there are real issues and conflicts at work, a person has to face them and not "turtle up". That stress can backfire on you, too.

Using your intuition lots of times is "seeing" what will happen soon unless you can diffuse the situation. It is walking a fine line of diplomacy when you don't necessarily feel like it.

Intuition tells me it's better not to "react" to that person's comment right now. To detach emotionally. To keep my own behavior appropriate to a work environnment.

I hear your frustration with that person, Hurt and confused. I hope you can refer me to another thread or something so I could understand better.

Oh yes, my intuition was working very well earlier this year, but I chose to ignore it. I will never make that mistake again...

Overcome,

You said:

"I always think about animals for instance, they survive on instinct. Wonder why the animals knew to go to higher ground before the Tsunami and we did not?"

I think that answer to that question is that (for the most part), animals do not ignore their instict, whereas people do. Animals are not concerned about being embarrassed or shamed or being told that they are over reacting or paranoid. The don't second guess themselves....they act.

People on the other hand worry that they'll look foolish, will appear paranoid or rude, etc. So we tend to ignore what our natural alarm systems warn us about.

I said it earlier in this tread and it I think it's worth repeating for anyone that is interested....."The Gift of Fear" by Gavin DeBecker is really a great book on the topic.

I believe that I am intuitive. Sometimes I act on it and sometimes not. I find that if I act immediately though without searching for wisdom or discernment, that the results are not very favorable! I also beleive that some people's souls are connected....many emotions there, and sometimes emotions are not the best way to discern those intuitive thoughts.

hi on my way i agree to act on it immediately without searching for wisdom first could lead to a result which may not of been in your or someone elses best interest,and also agree about emotions i would say im pretty intuitive,but have often allowed my emotions to judge my decision , and i also think that our past can also influence us sometimes we are convinced we are right about something but it is past hurts that only allow us to see it as it always was not how it really is ,i have made many judgements on things because of my past hurts only to see that it wasnt that way at all,,,,,,,,,,,,,so yes it is very important to wait for that wisdom first thank you for you post on my way....

Mishy~ My gosh, just when are you going to write that novel? Does your dramatic life ever stop coming up with something new? What a story!

I had intuition once before the big Loma Prieta earthquake (the San Francisco earthquake in the 80's).

I said to myself, "I had better wear pajamas tonight, because I think there is going to be an earthquake." I said this out loud getting ready for bed. (I never wear pajamas.)

The earthquake was the next day.
