Have you ever got a gut of feeling, but you weren’t sure of what you felt?
The people that are older than us tend to give a simple advice to be always sure of what we feel for ourselves, and to trust our first gut of feeling when something happened.
It is true that what we feel for the first time, especially when nothing triggers our mind to have such thoughts, it comes from our inner self, or as some of the spiritualists called it as our higher divine.
Human’s mind is mysterious and complicated to be understood. Understanding your perspective of how you see the world, either in a bigger picture or smaller picture. One can only hones their thoughts throughout life and experience. Every mind creates difference thought, depends on everyone’s surrounding.
Whether when we are alone, looking out at the street view behind the cafe’s window, or when we are in the middle of doing something in the crowd, sometimes, there is a single hunch comes into our minds. If it comes when nothing triggers our minds, there is a chance that our higher divine is trying to send a message. But sometimes when we see a certain sign, it can also work out. For example, like seeing a black crow, which some says it means that a bad omen comes for the one who sees it, such as death.
Or another example of our everyday life when we meet someone new, we usually have certain impression about someone that we don’t know after all. Such impression hovered in our minds, making us conflicted whether to think of this or that someone as a good person or an evil person.
Anything is possible, but don’t be dead sure about everything. A glimpse of thought can become a mere assumption if we don’t take things heedfully.
If that’s the case, now is time for the crucial question: Is your instinct playing a trick on you?
Between intuition and assumption, there’s a flimsy difference. One can only be certain of their instinct after a related event occurs. That is being said, human’s mind is the mystery of the unknown.
An assumption is a thought in the wake of occurrence about we think of something. It is usually born from a wishful thinking, and the result may vary, depends on one’s background, religion, and environment.
It doesn’t matter where we come from or what education we receive, it is all about our spirituality. The more we have a deeper spiritual aspect in our life, the more understanding we will receive about our intuition, and for that, we can distinguish the thoughts that come into our mind, whether it is really our instinct that takes part, or it is just a mere and shallow assumption.
