The intuition quotes on this page are all positive words of inspiration about what intuition is and how to use it.
Intuition is something we all have and can use, it is sometimes called other things: wisdom of the heart, instinct, gut reaction, inner knowing etc.. Like everything in life, the more we use it the easier it becomes to use, and by acknowledging our power we increase its strength.

Intuition comes in several forms…
A sudden flash of insight, visual or auditory. A predictive dream. A spinal shiver of recognition as something is occurring or told to you. A sense of knowing something already. A sense of déjà vu. A snapshot image of a future scene or event. Knowledge, perspective or understanding divined from tools which respond to the subconscious mind.
Intuition is a sense of knowing how to act spontaneously, without needing to know why.
Intuition is the highest form of intelligence, transcending all individual abilities and skills.

(title is a quote from Neale Donald Walsch)
Feeling Is The Language Of The Soul
If ever you are unsure of what to do
Look to your feelings for they will be true
Your feelings about something will never lie
Use them to guide you, go on, give it a try
Words are so easily misunderstood
We all have our own views, which aren’t always good
We all look at life in different ways
Understanding each other through our perceptual haze
By using your feelings you’ll learn to live intuitively
You’ll start to become who you really want to be
The path is not always easy to the light
So don’t be afraid to do what you feel is right
Your Soul will guide you always wanting what’s best
So put your feelings to the ultimate test
Intuition Quotes: H
Channelling is about allowing yourself to become aware of your intuitive self and extending that intuitive self to become sensitive to subtler levels of consciousness within. So, in whatever creative activity you are involved, you become aware of that sensitivity more acutely. Channelling can also extend beyond this to reaching out on to finer levels of consciousness.

Susan Jeffers 1938 – 2012
By learning to trust your intuition, miracles seem to happen. Intuitive thoughts are gifts from the higher self.
Steve Jobs 1955 – 2011
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
C. Joybell C.
Our bodies have five senses: touch, smell, taste, sight, hearing. But not to be overlooked are the senses of our Souls: intuition, peace, foresight, trust, empathy. The differences between people lie in their use of these senses; most people don’t know anything about the inner senses while a few people rely on them just as they rely on their physical senses, and in fact probably even more.
Intuition Quotes: K
Amit Kalantri 1988
Intuition is the nose of the heart.
Miranda Kerr 1983

As that subconscious force that knows life’s plan

When the intuition rings clear and true, loving impulses are favoured.
