S:0054 Distinction: Intuition vs. Instinct

(Distinctions are subtleties of language that, when gotten, cause a shift in a belief, behavior, value or attitude.)


Intuition refers to your ability to accurately process stimuli from your heart and soul. It is subtle, powerful information.

Instinct is a primal, survival reaction and is frequently fear-based. You rely on instinct to get out of dangerous situations; instinct is essential for human survival. An adrenaline rush is one indicator you have just done something instinctively.

When you work to build a strong personal foundation and abundant reserves you will be able to enjoy your intuition rather than wait for your instinct to kick in and save you.

Intuition is a richer experience of your Self.
