Intuition: 10 Reasons You Do Not Listen To It

Written by Nigel Percy

Intuition and dowsing

Dowsing is a super way to strengthen your intuition. By using your intuition and dowsing more, you bring your right brain into the process of life, giving you greater information and balance. Your intuition is part of you. It is a part of you which wants to help you, which looks out for you, gives you good advice and works to ensure you avoid mistakes. Dowsing is a great way to make the Inner Voice louder and less obscure. But many people have doubts about intuition and its value and reliability. Let's see how good those reasons really are.

1. It's not proven scientifically.

Correct. Intuition has not been located in a lab. But the plain fact is that it works. There are a hundred and one stories of it working. If you want to wait for a paper to be published which says what millions of people already know, then good luck and happy waiting. But who knows what you're missing out on in the meantime?

2. It's too vague to be of any use.

Well, it might seem like that, if you want answers in black and white. Definite answers don't always happen. Sometimes they do. But often they just need to be listened to carefully so that you get a feel for what's right. If you want stronger answers, you have to listen more often so you get to know what your intuition really sounds like. It's like arguing that you don't want to learn to read because there are lots of times when spelling is difficult and that everything should be spelled one way only. You'd miss out on an awful lot of information if you did that.

3. I'd look stupid if I trusted it and it let me down.

Now this one says what other people think is more important than living your own life. Not a good reason for not listening to your intuition. And anyway, if you listen correctly, it won't let you down. Ever.

4. I don't know what my intuition really is.

This is a simple one. Your intuition is the part of you that wants to help you. That's all you need to know. Think of it as a very close friend who always tells you the truth.

5. It might make me do something I don't want to do.

This is another way of saying, “I don't want to change my life, even if it's not going exactly as I want it to”. If your intuition is telling you to do something you think is a huge change or difficult or looks potentially risky, then listen even more carefully!! If it's that big, it's going to be interesting, to say the least. And no life should be lived entirely in safety. Life is to be lived! Intuition-driven changes are the really exciting moments in your life!!

6. I like being in control of my life.

If you really think you are in total control of your life, think again. You are at the mercy of your boss, your firm, your government, the economy, disease, other people. The list is endless. If you trust your intuition, you will get a smoother ride through life, and then you really will feel you are in control, not just kidding yourself.

7. I prefer to think things through properly.

There's always room and time to think things through. But if that's all you ever do, then you're missing out on a whole lot of information your rational brain can never access. Get the intuitive hit first; then do the thinking. If you study the lives of great men and women, you'll find they were never afraid to listen to their intuition.

8. Intuition only applies to small, insignificant things in my life.

It might seem that way if you are afraid to truly listen to it. If you only get told small, insignificant things, you're probably living a small life. Not the life you could live. If all it tells you is which movie to watch, the good news is that you are listening!! Now try listening to what else it tells you about your life. And be prepared to follow it!!

9. It's too unreliable.

Again, you are at least listening to your intuition. That's good! If you think it's unreliable it's probably because you want really strong, definite messages or you are afraid to follow up and do what the hunch said. Either way, relax! Let your intuition guide you. Note the word ‘guide'. Intuition does not ‘lead you by the hand', but allows you to go at your pace to the goal. That way, you'll find it to be far more reliable than you could imagine!

10. Like tarot cards and tea leaf readings, intuition's just a fraud.

Of course, there are always going to be people out there pretending to read tarot cards or tea leaves or any other method of fortune-telling. But you miss the point. If it really didn't work, no one would waste time and effort trying to convince you that it does. How do you think genuine fortune tellers work? It's not magic, but there is an awful lot of intuition in what they do. You probably know someone who either reads cards or visits such a person. Ask them about it. It is a wonderful way to enrich your life, add a new dimension and depth to it. And it could lead you to some truly wonderful times in your life. You have nothing to lose by listening to your intuition and everything to gain.


You can probably see that by following your intuition, by listening to your heart, by following your hunch, however you want to call it, you can have a better life. More satisfying, with fewer pitfalls and obstacles. What could be wrong with that? So get dowsing and begin to strengthen that Inner Voice and get the benefits of using your intuition on a daily basis.
