According to many researchers, intuition is far more material than it seems. Intuitive decision-making has the advantage of being quick. We get an overall feeling for a situation, based upon evolved emotions and heuristics and modified by our own experiences, and can act quickly on such feelings. And, we constantly take in all that happens to us and interpret it. We constantly interpret life. As Blaise Pascal wisely said, “The heart has reasons that reason does not understand.” And your heart is always right.
For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints. Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path; for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
Intuition can come through as a gut feeling, an “ah-ha!” moment, a body signal, a flash of insight or a dream. Research shows that during dream-time, for example, the brain does creative problem-solving , which can help you make the right choice in your waking life.
The truth is, trust must be carefully constructed, vigorously nurtured and constantly reinforced. Although it takes a long time to develop, it can be destroyed by a single action. And once lost, it is exceptionally difficult to re-establish. Trusting your intuition is one of the most precious proficiency to tenure.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.
