Why Learning to Trust Your Intuition Will Set You Free
Freedom — it’s what we all want and deserve, right? Freedom to make our own choices and create the fulfilling life we were meant to live. Yet, how many of us actually feel like we’ve been set free? I’m guessing that you don’t, or you wouldn’t be reading this. And that realization is a sign that you haven’t learned to trust your intuition — the only thing that can set you free.
It’s also a sign that you might be looking for your personal freedom in all the wrong places. Let’s face it; most of us tend to look for freedom outside of ourselves. We expect it to be granted to us by a partner, an employer, or an institution of some sort. But, as Terence McKenna once said, to believe that anyone but yourself can lead you to the light is ludicrous. Meaning, the only way you are going to find freedom is by learning to trust your intuition.
And, wouldn’t you love a little freedom from that nagging voice in your head? You know the voice I’m talking about — the one that says you shouldn’t trust your intuition. The voice that says you’re not good enough; that it’s better to play it safe than risk failure. Well, guess what? Learning to trust your intuition will quiet that voice so that you can free yourself from it!
So, how do you make this mindset shift? How do you learn to trust your intuition? You do it one step at a time. And you’re going to take your first step today by considering:
- What your intuition is,
- The purpose your intuition is meant to serve, and
- How you can use your intuition to set yourself free.
Your Intuition Wants to Be Heard
You might be asking yourself, “How do I know if I’m trusting my intuition or not?” Well, chances are you’re not. Most adults have lost the natural ability to listen to their intuition, and it takes a lot of practice to regain this skill. And, yes, I know it sounds a bit silly to think that we have to practice listening to ourselves, but it’s true, isn’t it? Because we’ve become very good at ignoring our intuition.
That’s why your intuition has to act up to get your attention. It may even throw a tantrum, just as a petulant toddler would. These tantrums will cause physical and psychological disruptions in your body, and you’ll be left with two choices. You can either do your best to ignore your intuition, which will only lead to more trouble. Or, you can really listen to what your intuition is saying, beneath all the noise, and take a step toward trusting it.
You’ll know that you’re not listening — that you’re ignoring your intuition — when:
- You hesitate to make decisions,
- You lack self-confidence, and/or
- You feel full of regret.
And who doesn’t experience at least one of these thought patterns every day, right? But, to really figure out whether or not you’re listening to your intuition, you need to understand what your intuition is in the first place.

Meet Your Intuition
Our bodies are designed to take care of themselves; it’s our minds that get in the way. What do I mean by this? I’ll answer that question, but, first, we need to understand a few basics about the way our brains operate.
Psychologists and neuroscientists tend to agree that our brains operate on three levels of consciousness, or awareness:
- The Conscious Mind contains your individual awareness of your unique thoughts, memories, feelings, sensations, and environments (definition from Verywell Mind). It holds the information you are focusing on right now. You can think of it as the visual element of the app you are currently using on your phone or computer.
