I had a hard time explaining what INTUITION is and how it works. Until a good friend of mine was suggesting to watch a documentary film: INNSAEI, and you can watch it, too, on Netflix.
“The ancient Icelandic word for intuition is “innsæi,” but in Iceland it has multiple meanings. It can mean “the sea within” which is the borderless nature of our inner world, a constantly moving world of vision, feelings and imagination beyond words. It can mean “to see within” which means to know yourself, and to know yourself well enough to be able to put yourself in other people’s shoes. And it can mean “to see from the inside out” which is to have a strong inner compass to navigate your way in our ever-changing world.”
I love the way they portrayed an intuitive nature on the documentary – despite of any harsh comments from other viewers on IMDb regarding that film.
If you’ve been experiencing this –> some people called you crazy just because you couldn’t explain how you knew things, well, I have been there, too. And I always feel that intuition is more like “it’s a knowing without knowing” – just like what is written on Wikipedia:
“Intuition is the ability to acquire knowledge without proof, evidence, or conscious reasoning, or without understanding how the knowledge was acquired.”
Perhaps, we just need to tap on our own intuitive ability more often and see how far it goes. Otherwise, we might miss things that would truly help us.
