Each day your intuition communicates multiple intuitive messages to you. These gentle or loud messages provide divine guidance and protection, for different areas of life. For example, you receive career or calling messages: Hunch to ask for a pay raise. School bell sound to improve job skills. Inspirational song to realize your purpose. Or health messages: Sudden knowing to take a break from household chores to ease stress. Wet taste to drink more water to eliminate dehydration. Warning dream to reduce salt intake to lower blood pressure. Or travel messages: Flash vision to slow down while driving to avoid a speeding ticket. Burning scent to change directions to bypass an unseen traffic accident. Wise saying to schedule an early flight to miss adverse weather delays.

Learning how to pay attention and respond to your intuition can be easy or challenging. I faced days when my intuition ruled and days when I overanalyzed, but the latter diminished as I understood how my intuition steered me to happiness and opportunities and away from frustration and danger. When receiving intuitive messages from your intuition, your life is impacted by four responses:

1. Ignore. Your intuition nudges and taps you, but you choose to ignore the intuitive messages, due to logic, busyness, or fear. Sheila intuitively felt nauseated when hanging out with a co-worker. She ignored her feeling, until her co-worker gossiped about her and other company employees. Thereafter, she kept her distance. Life impacts: Betrayal and tainted reputation.

2. Doubt. Your intuition advises or warns you, but you doubt the intuitive messages are true or likely to happen. In her mind’s eye, Tamara intuitively saw the face of her godson when she asked herself, "What happened to my rings?" She doubted her loved one was a thief, without concrete proof, but the face never changed. She later discovered that he had stolen her rings the last time he visited her apartment. Life impacts: Shock and lost trust.

3. Test. You test your intuition to validate the accuracy of the intuitive messages received. Elizabeth tested her intuition while she played electronic bingo, at a casino. In her mind’s eye, she intuitively saw certain numbers, before they appeared on bingo machines. She raised the amount of money played, selected those numbers, and won over one thousand dollars. Life impacts: Joy and increased finances.

4. Trust. You trust your intuition, without hesitation. I intuitively felt led to bring my personal and business checkbooks with me, before I visited my tax preparer. For six years, I provided the appropriate records, but had to come back a second time to verify and sign my tax returns. I trusted my intuition and placed both checkbooks in my purse. My tax preparer finished the returns in one session. I paid for the service on the spot, instead of having to drive thirty minutes back home to get my checkbooks. Life impacts: Contentment and saved time.

Intuition responses can be experienced in any order. On some days, you might trust or ignore your intuition. On other days, you doubt or test it. Notice how your life is impacted, in positive and negative ways, by your responses. The more you trust your intuition, the more you live an empowered life, in the intuitive flow.
