No crystal ball is needed nor is hiring a private investigator, we have got it covered because we have ‘Women’s intuition’. It is that feeling you get when your partner’s touch doesn’t seem quite right or when he says he would be somewhere and the story just does not add up. It is that feeling you get when you meet someone and you immediately feel the need to be cautious or distant.
It is buying a house, car or wedding dress and instantly knowing the right one to choose. It is selecting a job because of unexplained feelings that just connect with passion and soul and it is also leaving a job when something is draining your happiness and you simply do not know why.
Intuition exists in both males and females but there is a reason why the term “female or women’s intuition” is so popular in society and even throughout history. After doing a vast amount of research, the simplest way to explain it is the crucial fact that male and female brains are wired differently. It is scientifically proven that males tend to base their thinking more on what seems to be logic whilst females are naturally more intuitive thinkers. In my opinion, it also has a lot to do with how we were socialised as children and how we were taught to solve problems and interact.
Intuition is often called your gut instinct, inner voice or sixth sense. It is your immediate understanding of something combined with fast decision-making due to the brain’s ability to extract internal and external cues. Some people even train their intuition and have access to dreams that unlock answers to daily trials, others are spiritually intuitive and use prayer and meditation to build the ability to bring light to harmful situations.
If I had a dollar for every time I got a bad feeling about someone or something, I would not only be extremely rich, but I would have avoided so many hurtful situations in my life. However, as the saying goes, “Things happen for a reason” and I truly believe intuition, once given the right grooming, can grow with time. Red flags are real and that raw, gut feeling is a divine way of figuring out what is right and which decisions are worth taking. Think about it - how many times have women been called “overly sensitive” or “overly emotional”? We are known to be driven by instinct.
As women, we are sometimes viewed as weak because of these traits and that is a huge mistake. These should be viewed as strengths. Being intuitive takes a level of understanding how to tap into your emotions and connect with your innermost self allowing you to not only be emotional but to read people in ways others simply cannot. Women have an amazing ability to empathise and understand unsaid wants and needs. We often pick up on cues, especially with the ones we love, that may seem invisible to others. Tone of voice, change of mood, facial expressions even when a baby cries differently, women notice them all but sometimes we second guess ourselves.
The truth is, love, for instance, is not a logical, rational emotion. Logic may assist in the filtering process but ultimately, the chemistry with your partner and unexplained compatibility are decided by the heart which is governed by our intuition. Always listen to what it has to say.
Nine out of 10 times it is usually correct or trying to tell you that something needs attention. Maybe it is time to have a conversation about something that keeps haunting you or to make a change in your life, whether big or small.
Whatever the reason, listen and unlock the magical power of female intuition. It can change your life giving you the answers you have been looking for everywhere, except in the most important place–within yourself.
