      Smile Tell me about your moments of intuition.

      This thread is all about your intuition/gut feeling stories that came out to be true for you. Share as many intuition moments as you like. Or maybe you have heard a story from a friend or close family member that told you about their intuition experience.

      So here are some of my own experiences of intuition that I can recall at the moment.

      1. This is my most recent one that surprised me after it happened, like it always do when it happen. So I was at my current work place which is a pretty big construction site with 150-200 people running around and do their thing. My co-worker was looking for the broom that someone apperently "borrowed" I guess.. after several minutes with no clue where it went. I got this gut feeling moment that the broom is coming down in the elevator(this is an temporary open elevator "oldschool style"). How ever, I looked up and saw this slow elevator coming down from the top floor, and as soon as I was able to see into the elevator I saw the brom as I excpected to do. And took it from the guy who apperently hadn't in mind to return it since he was trying to pass the floor I was waiting on. My co-worker was very surprised of this as well.


      2. I had been betting on several soccer matches, as I've been doing for some months without any luck besides smaller winns. I hadn't been able to looking at any results of the matches. But when I was about to go to check if I hit the bullseye this time. I noticed this feeling that I must have won something big this time. Even if the feeling of excitement before I check the result always is there with me. I could still tell that this time it felt different from all the other months of betting. I was certain that I had it this time. And my expectations was once again confirmed with my first bullseye win.


      3. This one might not seem too surprising since it could be self provoked, but it was still a moment of sudden intuition. I was standing infront of the bathroom mirror and was brushing my teeth. Then out of nowhere I got the clearest realization that I will have a lucid dream tonight.(which is rare for me to have) So I got all excited by that, but did just moment after the excitement calm my self down and thought for myself that I will be as calm in the lucid dream as I am right now, and that I will just look around for a moment when I realize that Im dreaming. I did go to bed and was dreaming as usual until I suddenly in the calmest way ever in a dream, thought to my self. This is a dream. Iv'e had a totall of maybe 25-30 lucid dream moments. And about 98% of them have been lasting maybe for a some seconds at best. But this lucid dream right here was the most special to me since the way I noticed that I was dreaming. Was so clear and calm that I didn't even got excited or surprised in the moment of lucidity, and was able to keep it that way for several seconds.



      I've like to end this opening post with a quote from Einstein that I think will be suitable to this thread.


      “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”

      ― Albert Einstein

      Can only think of two at the moment.

      1. I was coming out of the toilet at my school and was thinking of which way to go. One way I would go to the study room, where I was thinking that I'd get to see the girl I liked, and hopefully would talk to her. The other option was to just go to the library, because I knew that If I went the other way probably nothing interesting would happen anyway, so I'd just waste time at the library. I was almost sure on going to the study room, but had this deep feeling I had to go the other way right now. I went the other way and on my way to the library I met another girl that liked me. Long story short, this girl changed my life. Nothing happened between us, and partly because of that I went into depression; which was tough, but probably the best thing that ever happened to me. Got me to the path of lucid dreaming and much more.

      2. This one is quite recent. I found out that a band I like were going to play where I live. Upon finding this out I waited for the day that tickets would go on sale and on the night before as I went to bed I had a very strong feeling that I should try to buy an extra ticket to invite a friend of mine to come. At the same time I also had the feeling the friend wouldn't be able to come, but I was to do so. I also had a strong feeling that if I went to the show that I'd meet a girl there. Now even though I felt these, I wasn't sure If I'd be able to find tickets in the morning (tickets from big bands tend to sell out almost immediately). I asked myself to dream of the band or something related that night in order to confirm that I would indeed get tickets. That night I had a dream with one of the band members. Had never dreamt of them before. In the morning I struggled to get the tickets I wanted which were for downstairs standing, but got upstairs unreserved seated. I then wrote down all my intuitions/premonitions down. After a couple of days I invited my friend, who indeed could not come to the show, due to holiday plans. On the night of the show a girl sat next to me and we became friends. I told her a couple of days later about how I felt I was going to meet a girl a month before the show. She probably thinks I'm a freak now haha.

      Rodrodrod that was two very interesting storys, tanks for sharing them!

      I actually had one of these gut feeling today at work again. Though the feeling of intentions rarely happens to me. This wasn't the greatest one I had, but I got a little surprised to be honest. So here it goes. I was moving these packets with tiles in them. And every Packet have a plastic strap around them, that holding it all togheter better than only the cardboard box itself. I've probably been moving many hundreds of these packets at my current workplace. And not a single time have any of these plastic straps that I lift them by, broke. And today after I had moved over 60 of them already, then I dropped a packet because the plastic strap broke. I was lifting them as I always did so I assumed that the strap was just weakened. I didnt care to much about that and was about to keep moving these things when a thought struck me that this might just happen again. And I felt that this time, I was about to drop the next two packets in the same way. So as I was about to reach for the next two packets, I tried to be extra gentle since I had this gut feeling that this wasn't going to go my way. And then BAM, both straps snapped and the tiles hit the floor.. It's quite hard to ignore the coincidences in life some times.

      Glad to share!

      Just thought of some minor examples. When I used to play Fifa with friends and online I could almost always feel, or know which side my adversary would shoot on a penalty. Also, my brother tends to sense goals before they happen when we watch football on TV sometimes.

      It really is amazing how these things happen. Life truly is fascinating!

      Rodrodrod, Im in totally agreement with what your saying. And even these minor examples that you bring up now for example. Those might be smal events to most people, so they are quite easy to be overlooked by most people as well. But what could be more fascinating about life really. Looking at selfies or simply noticing the feeling intention? Well maybe both are fascinating, but in my opinion, I rather take my interest in the later, that's for sure!

      If you happen to get any more feeling of intention, feel free to post as much as you like! I cant imagine that I will ever be tired to read storys like your ones Rodrodrod. So thanks once again for sharing! And I hope that more people will have the courage to post their stories.

      Synchronicities have really ramped up in my life the past month or so...meeting a lot of new people, many of whom have remarked that they feel like they've known me for a long time (even though we've all just recently met for the first time). And I also really feel like I've known them for a long time.

      I don't necessarily believe in predeterminism, but I do sometimes feel like this life is just one iteration of an infinite number of lives that I've lived before and that, inevitably, many of the people I have been involved with in past go-rounds show up in this life and we all, on some level, "remember" those past associations we've had with one another.

      I've had intuitive moments since childhood. I always felt like there was a presence protecting me even before I'd ever set foot in achurch to hear anout guardian angels or even ever heard anything about spirits etc. I was just a child when I felt this, it never actually protected me from some terrible things that happened to me and maybe it couldn't but at the same time it has always been there... One of my first strong intuitive moments was as a child and I'd lost mom in the store. I was of course scared so I actually turned to this intuitive side for help and felt to go a certain direction. I did and I found my mom. It's possible it was all luck and imagination but it made me scared of whatever this was.. The logic of a child I guess so I tried to ignore this intuition thingy. I have had many more experiences more significant since though and I've learned to trust this.
      I've had moments where I just know something I shouldn't and then find out it's real. I've had those warning gut feelings too that all turned out real. I've had a couple occasions too where I believe I may have been 'rescued'.

      I think we use intuition way more than we realize. Though sometimes i'm not sure whether i confuse just being aware with intuition.

      Its hard to describe that uneasy feeling you get before something happens. Two teens walked up to me. Maybe it was the way they were looking at me or something. But i sensed something wasn't right. They tried to rob me shortly after. They got distracted by someone walking by so i ran away fast. I do photography sometimes. I was in Harlem taking a few photos and the way this guy was looking at me. I got that uneasy feeling so i quickly left. Plenty of times i've gotten completely lost during my travels only to somehow find my way back. I predicted how a relationship was going to end months in advance and had a dream about it. About two or three months later it ended in a similar way i imagined and dreamed it would. The timing in which i doing things seems too perfect at times. Leaving for my travels just before a hurricane hits. Leaving from the Amazon then shortly after hearing much of it is on fire. I think we all use this more than we realize.

      I agree with your overall sentiment, although I have to nitpick here that lacking awareness of how much we use intuition is based on how well a person understands intuition as a phenomenon. Intuition, as I'd generally define it, is the recognition and awareness of patterns that is felt as opposed to thought about consciously using logic and reasoning (which almost by definition is a line of thought and/or experience that is that is mediate understood and is given context and meaning to through the use of language or other signifiers such as concepts and symbolic representation... which, really, is essentially what language is at a more fundamental level).

      The left brain is more the domain of thought processes that are governed by logic and reason, and is characterized by being more understood and processed consciously, in a manner we are therefore more aware of. Emotions, and more specifically feelings are processed much more unconsciously. In this context, I would define the term "feelings" as I mean it to be concepts and perceptions are innately understood such that they are nearly autonomous and can possess meanings and significance that we quite often have difficulty consciously understanding or even have difficulty recognizing or being aware of.

      Since feelings, and therefore intuition, are processed unconsciously, they pretty much invariably occur prior to any conscious recognition of what's being perceived and being reacted to takes place...quite often even when it's the case that the conscious recognition and processing of the pattern being picked up on never actually happens. Logic and reason can be great tools for performing specific tasks that require narrow focus and deliberate discernment of small levels of detail, but are not very efficient at large level details and understanding the bigger picture at a glance. This is what the right brain and unconscious mind are better suited for. It detects potential problems before the potential for a problem existing ever even occurs to us consciously and steps in to warn us by getting our attention in very powerful, effective ways through the use of feelings, emotions, the perceived atmosphere/mood/vibe of a situation, etc., so we don't potentially drive ourselves into even further danger by having to take the time to process what's going on consciously with logic and reason to deliver it to us in direct terms we'd certainly more easily understood... but could only make it to us when we are otherwise already dead, are in the process of dying, or costing us limbs or other organs or important bodily structures by doing so.

      I don't think it's a stretch to say we utilize intuition very naturally as a tool for developing quick understandings of a situation or altering us to potential trouble, even though the system by its very nature is prone to potentially major inaccuracies in our understanding of the situation unfolding around us. It's prone to errors, but that's what logic and reason is for... to filter an suss out these errors during a moment where we have time to reflect on an experience in relative safety. I'd say the amount of times we intuit things in a day in proportion to how much we consciously think about something rationally is quite akin to the tip of an iceberg in relation to its size beneath the ocean's surface. The ocean's surface here is a barrier to our depths of the "sea" of our unconscious and the conscious "air" that resides above the surface.

      Not sure if this counts. But it comes to mind while reading this thread.

      I was sleeping on a large cushion in my living room facing my bedroom which the girl I was dating at the time was sleeping in my bed. Opening my eyes everything was grey and I was paralyzed. I was familiar with sleep paralysis so I just sat quietly observing what would come next. Sensing a presence in the room I then saw a perfect ghosty silhouette of my girlfriend walk to the doorway, lean against the frame while looking my direction, and begin to slowly walk towards me. I couldn't move at all so I just watched as her shadow approached me, and began to lay down on top of me, phasing her shadow into my body.

      I woke up with a racing heart but remained motionless. No sooner than 30 seconds goes by I am just laying there with my eyes open. I hear her rustle in the room and then in exactly as her previous form, she stands in the doorway looking at me, and comes to me in a half sleep state, she slowly lays down on top of me on the cushion.

      I was in somewhat disbelief as I had just witnessed this exact action moments before while in paralysis.

      I am more than I think am, I can become much more than that even
