Our bodies have five senses: touch, smell, taste, sight, hearing. But not to be overlooked are the senses of our souls: intuition, peace, foresight, trust, empathy. The differences between people lie in their use of these senses; most people don’t know anything about the inner senses while a few people rely on them just as they rely on their physical senses, and in fact probably even more.
We all know about its existence. We refer to it in many ways. Sixth sense, intuition, premonition, vision, extrasensory perception, gut feeling, vibes. It is a never-ending list. All implicating to the exact same thing; instincts. Recall every single event that took place in your life. I would not be wrong in saying that in all situations that required spontaneous reactions out of you, without the guidance of a third person, your decisions were always based on your intuition.
Perceiving events before it happening is not unique. It is just a skill some develop without them knowing. It scares the crap out of some initially, as they themselves were unaware of the fact they had procured this certain skill set. It is something we all possess. The only difference, the ones who know nurture it as they grow old. I am not very pleased with the way my intuition works. People who know me claim I possess a black tongue(the perks being none, the curse being the harbinger of bad luck). Even though it is not black literally, there are times I thought why I had to say things I felt out loud which was going to happen.
At first, it happened with the most trivial of situations like flight delays and teachers being absent in school. You do not quite anticipate it to occur very frequently as it used to. For every single instance which posed to be a test for me, I always had two ways out of it; one, listen to my head, two, follow my gut. But with me, things were not the best when I spelled out my intuition out loud to the world. I started realizing it the hard way.
The way my intuitions worked was weird to me. All the times I felt something bad was going to happen, I was never shy to point it out. But like I said earlier, it does not end up being a healthy situation for you when the ball finally drops. It all began with vehicular destruction on every level. Let it be a bike or a car that was engaged in an accident, I always felt something was not right before it happened. It is not that easy to explain how or why I knew it was so, but it is an unreal feeling that eats up my insides. Initially, I felt I had an obligation to alert the people I cared for when I saw it happening. Then again as time went by, I realized no matter how I felt things were going to occur, sometimes their gut feeling rules down mine. The results thus being inevitable and hard on both of us. It was then people around me hated when I said bad things sarcastically. The fact being I meant it out of humour while they felt it would just make it happen.
All throughout my life, holding back my intuitions was not something I enjoyed doing. I always felt the need to express oneself if you felt inside things are not going to be well. That is all I did and that is what I will keep doing. Good if it does not happen, best if the person pays heed to it. So I urge everyone to speak out your real thoughts or instincts without hesitation thinking about how the society might outcast you. Who knows someday it might even save an entire country. It is only intuitions that helped even the biggest failures among inventors find their moment of glory at the end. So let your intuition run your thoughts and your thoughts run your actions. Incite your intuitions to draw your life out for you one day at a time.
The truth about life and lie about life is not measured by others but by your intuition, which never lies.
