i wrote a bit about intuition in this post
, and i'll expand on it a bit more here, and then talk about my "feeling" of it.
in that post, i mentioned the two types of intuition that i experience. the first is what i call 'innate wisdom' and the other is what i call 'informed wisdom.'
the first style of wisdom or intuition is that which is innate. it's location is largely in the innate and natural 'knowing' of the body--deeply connected to physical processes, instinct, natural biological processes, and the "feeling brain" of the solar plexus. this is waht many peopel call "gut feeling" and it's a sort of intuition that is deeply connected to physical being.
it requires a certain level of both physical and emotional grounding--which developes a deep understanding and trust in the body's own workings and 'knowings.' these knowings can give our consciousness (our minds, intellect) clues about what is going on, what we may need to do to act. And if we listen to that, we do quite a good job of taking care of our bodies and keeping ourselves healthy and safe physically and often emotionally as well.
to me, this sort of innate knowing or wisdom feelings like a gut tingling feeling that starts in the solar plexus and works it's way outward in a warming fashion or in a strong tingling fashion. warming tends to do with positive things (this is the "right" way to go) and tingling is more like a "spidey sense" that tells me something is not correct or needs to be corrected. the tingling tends to stay localized until i can determine the appropriate action to take in response to the tingling sensation.
this warning system, leads into the next form of intuition quite nicely, actually. i call this 'informed wisdom' because it's located largely in the head. i tend to feel it in the third eye center--when the energy is relaly moving--and it is something that functions as an extension of intellect.
as a pp mentioned, there is this aspect of conscious and sub conscious knowings at the organic levels, things picked up by the brain consciously or unconsciously that are being brought together into informed, coalesced ideas. these ideas, of course, are intellectual in and of themselves, a product of the brain matter connecting information and creating it into a thought pattern or idea.
beyond this intellectual space, is the ability to really understand and utilize this idea in an effective manner--and this is the spirit knowing, the animating force within and behind our physical and spiritual selves. we 'break through' intellectualism into this space when we allow that intellectualism to be held as valuable, but ony as valuable as it is applicable in that moment.
as an example, one can have great knowledge of birth intellectually, but until confronted with birth (own or another's in the present and immediate) will the spirit animate that knowledge into something functional and appropriate in action. this becomes an informed intuition--informed by both the conscious and unconscious information stored in the brain, as well as the information of the moment, as well as the information from the 'innate knowing' or 'gut feeling' and then animated by the Spirit.
to me, this sort of knowing or intuition has two feeling components. first, there is the sensation of openness in the third eye through the crown of my head, which really feels like a sense of physical lightness and ease in the area, as if the wind is blowing through my hair and extending it up and out in all directions, curling as it does, moving away from my face.
the second aspect of feeling is the sense of "knowing" deep in my bones. So not only do i feel "light and open" i also feel very physically present and grounded, where the "bones" are housing the knowledge and from that most central, most core physical place, the body is acting on that spirit animation of that knowledge from that deep physical level. That is, the spirit is moving on the physical through bones and outward.
(i have a great love of bones, and it has a specific and unique symbology to me of being ancient, knowing, wise, the origins, the aftermath of life, the mark of one's legacy, and so on. . ..)
when i have a concert of intuitive action, i find that i feel a great sense of tingling and warmth (alternating as i'm moving through and between the 'not-right/right' spaces), as well as a great sense of grounding and spiritual openness--i feel more physical and more 'attached' or firm in my bones, while simultaneously feeling light and open in my head, shoulders, arms, and hands (most commonly associated with 'action' for me).
it's a powerful place.
does this answer the question in any helpful way?
