What Is The True Intuitive Meaning?

by Natasha Wanderly April 12, 2019


The urge. The tingle. The tiny voice in your head. These are all ways your intuition is talking to you.

Being intuitive means having the ability to know or understand something instinctively and instantly without any rational process.

Thankfully, science is unveiling great discoveries about the true intuitive meaning and how it connects your unconscious mind with the conscious present.

What Does It Mean To Be Intuitive?

Psychics are the most notable intuitive people. Parents, too, can be very intuitive when it comes to their children. Even you can be intuitive, like when a stranger gives you a weird vibe or when you unexpectedly say the right thing to someone in need.

If you are an intuitive person, you are able to know or understand something without any reasoning process. Something within you just knows instantly. This feeling of knowing often comes in the form of intense, unexplained emotion.

As an intuitive person, you will share many of the following life characteristics with other intuitive people:

  • Synchronicities are always happening to you
  • You easily pick up on other people’s emotions
  • Vivid dreams are common
  • You listen to your inner voice
  • Your awareness is generally in the present moment
  • You are very observant of your surroundings

What does intuitive empath mean?

An empath is someone who is extremely sensitive to the energy around them and oftentimes, can unconsciously receive information that others can’t.

So, if you link the concept of an “empath” with “intuition,” you’ll have someone who is super in tune with their intuitive abilities.

3 Scientific Experiments On The True Intuitive Meaning

1. On sending messages via the mind

An academic division at the University of Edinburgh did a study on whether or not people have the ability to ‘send’ messages with just their minds.

The participants were divided into two separate groups — the ‘senders’ and the ‘receivers’ — and then, separated into two different rooms.

The ‘receivers’ listened to white noise, wore eye shields, and were bathed in red light. This was so the ‘senders’ couldn’t transmit any sensory information.

The ‘senders’ were shown a specific video and instructed to send the images of the video to the ‘receivers’ using only their minds.  

Next, four different videos were shown to the ‘receivers,’ who had to choose which of the videos they believed the ‘senders’ watched.

Now, generally, the expected ‘hit’ rate would be a 25%. However, that’s not what happened.

The ‘receivers’ actually reached a 33% ‘hit’ rate. That’s a 7% increase!

Vishen’s take on it

Vishen Lakhiani, Founder of Mindvalley shared this information at a talk and explained:

“Now, you may be thinking that 7% isn’t like a big deal. But when you put this into a real-world context, 7% can be incredibly significant.

It shows that the odds of intuition being real are billions to 1 in favor of intuition.”

2.  On predicting the future

Another study conducted on intuitive meaning had their participants try to predict whether a random image shown on a computer was behind ‘curtain #1’ or ‘curtain #2.’

The researchers measured subtle physiological responses, such as the opening of sweat glands on the participants’ palms.

The participants struggled to consciously decide which ‘curtain’ the image was behind. Remarkably, their bodies intuitively knew the correct answer 2-3 seconds before the randomizing system on the computer decided which curtain to use.

Although the participants weren’t always consciously aware of the intuition and precognition of their physiology, their sweaty palms were correct nearly 100% of the time.

The HeartMath Institute performed a very similar study to this, measuring the heart waves of participants with the same results. It seems that our physiology is able to, in some mysterious way, predict the future.

3. On making the best decision — immediately

One more study about intuition set out to validate the “gut feeling” you get when making big life decisions.

Their subjects: car buyers.

Some car buyers took plenty of time to analyze all of the information about numerous car choices. They were satisfied with their purchase decision only 25% of the time.

The other car buyers followed their gut feelings and made quick, intuitive decisions. They were satisfied with their purchase 60% of the time.

What is an intuitive approach?

Simply put, an intuitive approach is when someone makes a decision based on their gut feeling instead of consciously analyzing situations and mulling over facts.

The third example above is a perfect example of an “intuitive approach,” which is also known as “intuitive decision making.”

Gary Klein, author of The Power of Intuition suggests that roughly 90% of our critical decisions are actually made using intuition.

It’s quite relieving to know that we have this inner guide, isn’t it? If you want to know more about intuition, head over to Mindvalley.

Do you believe that you need to work hard to be successful?

Like most people, your answer is most probably ‘yes’. After all, it’s what we’ve all been brought up to believe.

The problem is that when you believe this, you start to lose yourself to the grind. You start to associate success with pain and struggle.
