Intuition is a direct perception and knowing independent of any reasoning process. It's a unique way to perceive information that is outside of your normal mental and emotional processes.
Instead of using your logic or assessing how you feel to gather insight on a particular situation, you can instead use your intuitive function to access an alternate area of information. Intuition can be used as a supernatural superpower to hear divinely inspired guidance directly from your higher self and God.
Your intuition is a sense, like your five physical senses: sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. Intuition is not bound to the physical world like your other five senses. Therefore it behaves differently, as it is not subject to the universal principles of space and time.
Since intuitive information does not have time or space constraints, you don't need to wait for it to go someplace and return to you, unlike sound, for example, which takes time to travel through the air so you can hear it. Intuitive information transmits and appears instantly.
You can use your intuition to pick up any extrasensory information. For example, your intuitive function can retrieve guidance from those who have died or spirit guides. Although these types and other psychic information can be helpful, I find that the most consistent, useful, and reliable guidance comes directly from your higher self and God.

Your higher self and God know your life path and purpose and are the most trusted spiritual resources. Using your innate gift of intuition to contact and receive information from your soul-level of consciousness directly is a powerful tool that can help you effectively navigate life.
