Have you ever had a “gut feeling” about something that’s later turned out to be true? Have you ever felt “open-hearted”? Ever encountered a situation that’s made you “hot under the collar”?
Anyone who doesn’t believe in gut feelings and intuition. Is so at best, ignorant of essential characteristic of interpersonal communication.
Gut feeling or intuition is a channel via which we are able to appreciate beliefs that have been manifested in the subconscious. The reason this avenue is essential is because the majority and most significant aspects of interpersonal communication are exchanged subconsciously. Anyone who doesn’t realise this can lacks appreciation of the relevant psychology.
It’s important to acknowledge and listen to our intuition because it can make available subconscious feelings that would otherwise be overlooked due to lack of consciously available clues or logic.
For instance In an interview, we might have the “feeling” of distrust, or even a mere fleeting sense of dissatisfaction with a single word. This is because we have felt the physiological and/or conscious response to the subconsciously recognised clues .
Believe it or not these seemingly illogical expressions are unconscious recognitions of a deeper knowledge within all of us. A knowledge of a subtle energy system of Chakras and Channels and the way that they work to produce many of the odd sensations and intuitions that all of us experience from time to time. in reality we deal with them every day and yes sometimes our gut feelings “are” smarter than our brains.
