Where does intuition come from?

My Facebook Friends chose this week's topic: Intuition. 
Some even volunteered personal stories. Thank you so much for your help! =) 

What is Intuition? 

The dictionary refers to Intuition as "a feeling that makes a person act a certain way without fully understanding why?" Webster's Dictionary also references "a natural ability or a power that makes it possible for us to know something without proof or evidence." A hunch, if you will. Both of these definitions resonate with me. The only thing I would add, is that intuition comes to us as a series of extrasensory messages. I honestly believe we are being given the answers, all the time. Every now and then we get a head's up too. The more we listen to these messages, the easier it is for us to navigate our way through life. But where does this information come from? Who sends the message? As far as I can tell, Intuition has two main sources: our guides and angels, and our Soul. 

1)  Angels and Spirit Helpers: We all have a team of angels & guides looking out for us. They send messages, coincidences and direction to help us out. They can also send people to intervene on our behalf. Sometimes they give us direct messages (advice), other times they show us kindness when we need it most.   

This was the case with one of my Facebook friends. Let's call her Lucy. A few days ago she was getting ready to leave for her history class. She was almost out the door, when a little voice told her that it would be a good day to stay home. Lucy decided to skip class. Her upstairs neighbour fell down and hurt herself (or himself?!?). They were home alone, and Lucy was there to help. Its worth mentioning that the reason only became apparent after the fall, as is often the case with our intuitive hunches. Our special team talks to us through thoughts, feelings, visions and also through other people. Next week, we'll talk about psychic skills you can develop to receive these messages, loud and clear. 

2) Our Higher Self (Our Soul) is the 2nd source of intuition. We have a huge amount of common sense stored away, even forgotten. By listening to our body, we can tap into the wisdom that's tucked away in our subconscious. The Soul is the repository of everything we have lived and been in multiple lives, whereas I feel that the Higher Self is the wisdom or awareness above that, guiding our steps  

This is how we can go about it: 

We all have an energy body, it consists of our Aura and Chakra, which are continuously scanning the outside world for information. Whenever we walk into a new situation or meet a new person, our energy scans theirs and makes an assessment. Are they trustworthy, honest and genuine? Would we get along? Is this someone I want to spend my time with, etc. That information is filtered through the Chakras to the physical body, who sends us signs. You might get good vibes from one person. Another makes us feel uneasy and we don't know why. If our energy was clear to begin with, we can trust those vibes. These intuitive feelings can register anywhere, but the Solar Plexus is a common spot. 

Another one of my lovely Facebook Friends volunteered an anecdote to illustrate this point (thank you Kassandra!). Her intuition is in her gut (not uncommon!) and when someone tells a big lie, she gets sick to her stomach. It only goes away when she uncovers the truth. This is probably extreme, but lots of us get funny feelings in our stomachs when something is off kilter. These gut feelings are tied into the Solar Plexus's role as an intuitive alert system. Its also the Chakra through which we handle negotiations and power struggles with other people. So long as our energy is clear, grounded and protected, listening to those intuitive hunches is probably a good idea. We can also work on clearing and healing our Brow and Solar Plexus Chakras of fears that trigger "false alarms."  Try this Stress Relief Meditation to learn how!
