Trusting your gut- the role of intuition and curiosity

Do you ever just get a feeling?  Some little voice in the back of your head that whispers at you to pay attention, to not trust someone, to step back from the curb?  That little voice is your intuition and it is a powerful ally in your spiritual journey.When it speaks, I listen.  I don't always obey, but I do listen, weigh the options and check things out.  Frequently, Intuition sings a duet with Curiosity. Together, they push me to learn a great deal about what is going on around me.

I believe it was Barbara Walters who said "There is no excuse in life for not paying attention" (Correct me if this is wrong, please).  Words to live by.  Paying attention to the world within and the world without is the most important thing you can do to create happiness. It allows us to see opportunity, avoid misfortune and connect with other beings.  We shouldn't automatically trust that these things are safe, and this is where intuition and curiosity come in.  Your intuition may urge you to pay closer attention, but curiosity is what compels you to look closer.

Open your senses, listen to your intuition and follow your curiosity. if something feels off, it likely is.  If you get the impression that you've missed some important plot element, you have; if something makes you uneasy and bone deep scared, something is very wrong.  Make use of these tools and your journey will be easier and make far better sense.  If we weren't meant to use these things, we wouldn't possess them.
