Your instincts

Pay attention to your instincts. Just because they are not rational does not mean they are uninformed.

There is much your senses have captured that you never consciously realized. There is much you have known that you do not currently recall.

Your instincts are informed by the rich sensory details of your experiences and the memories hidden in your subconscious. Your instincts draw upon truths that are not limited by reason or logic.

Your instincts can make connections that you are afraid to make or embarrassed to make, or just too stubborn to make. No, they are not magically perfect, but neither are your instincts crazy.

When you feel something is wrong, though you have no explicit evidence for it to be, give weight to that feeling. Don’t be so impressed with your own intelligence that you ignore what you can’t explain.

Tap into the dimension of your intelligence that exists beyond fact and reason. Give serious consideration to your instincts, for they know you and your world very well.
