Nonetheless, intuition speaks to us in many ways.
It can be reaction of your body to a person or a situation.
You tense up around threatening people.
You experience an uneasy feeling in pit of your stomach when you have to operate in a situation where something is "not quite right." Sure, it looks fine on surface, but there's more to story than meets eye.
Intuition works other way, too. Some people and places feel easy and comfortable. We feel strong and recharged around them.
They are good for us. We just accept it. We feel no need to question.
There are many applications to use of intuition in our personal and business lives. We tend do well in settings and around people that support our abilities and support us emotionally.
Your intuition can be a divining rod leading you to those settings. By monitoring your feelings, your reactions, your energy levels, you can determine whether something or someone is good for you.
A feeling of uneasiness, queasiness should serve as a red flag when, say taking on a new client, a new project, a new partner, a new job. Then it is time to call in your powers of logic, observation and analysis to ferret out reasons why you are feeling this way.
More often than not, your gut will warn you before you are able to see landmine.
I suggest looking at intuition and logic as two complementary ways of processing information. If two aren't pointing in same direction, more likely than not, you don't have all of information.
Proceed with caution.
And when they do point same way, you can be confident that you on right track.
Then it's full steam ahead.
