In this blog post, we talk about what intuition is and how it can help us. We also collected over 125 beautiful quotes about intuition.
What is intuition and how does it help us?
Intuition cannot be explained scientifically, because the phenomenon itself is unscientific and irrational. Intuition is something beyond the intellect. Something that comes from a place totally unknown to us. The intellect can feel it, but it cannot explain it.
When you feel that something is not for you, you reject it, but you cannot explain why. That is intuition. Or on the contrary, when you feel like you were born for it. It’s all intuition. All people are gifted with intuition, but it can be more or less developed. Not only great geniuses and famous inventors have intuitions.
Intuition is based on past experiences, information and knowledge that we have accumulated over time.
Even if we don’t realize it, everything we read, learned, accumulated over time, remained stored through a corner of our mind. Even if our conscious side has forgotten a certain event or information, the subconscious keeps it and uses it in different ways. One of these ways is intuition.
So the more experience we have in a field, the more developed and accurate our intuition will be in that field.
Intuition cannot be forced or provoked, but there are some tricks we can stimulate it through.
Here are some ideas for when you need to make an important decision and need “inspiration”:
Keep calm – For a few moments you have to calm down, free your mind from thoughts and fears in order to make the best decision and not a hasty decision, determined by fear or under the influence of momentary impulses.
Be open – You have to be open to new points of view, to new solutions. There are situations in which those around us present things to us in a certain way but intuition tells us something completely different, we must be flexible, not become trapped in a single perspective, to hear the voice of intuition we must accept other points of view than the ones I’ve heard so far.
Ask questions – Asking questions is one of the most powerful ways to stimulate intuition. By asking the right questions, we can get the right answers.
We need to ask ourselves and our subconscious will look for possible answers in past experiences.
We can use intuition when making important decisions. Ask the question. The first answer that will come to your mind is the one given by intuition, because reason does not have time to analyze the situation through its filter.

JoyBell C.

- “Come from the heart, the true heart, not the head. When in doubt, choose the heart. This does not mean to deny your own experiences and that which you have empirically learned through the years.

When the intuition rings clear and true, loving impulses are favored.” ― Brian Weiss

- “I invited Intuition to stay in my house when my roommates went North. I warned her that I am territorial and I keep the herb jars in alphabetical order. Intuition confessed that she has a ‘spotty employment record.’ She was fired from her last job for daydreaming.
When Intuition moved in, she washed all the windows, cleaned out the fireplace, planted fruit trees, and lit purple candles. She doesn’t cook much. She eats beautiful foods, artichokes, avocadoes, persimmons and pomegranates, wild rice with wild mushrooms, chrysanthemum tea. She doesn’t have many possessions. Each thing is special. I wish you could see the way she arranged her treasures on the fireplace mantle. She has a splendid collection of cups, bowls, and baskets.
Well, the herbs are still in alphabetical order, and I can’t complain about how the house looks. Since Intuition moved in, my life has been turned inside out.” ― J. Ruth Gendler

- “Samuel Vimes dreamed about Clues. He had a jaundiced view of Clues. He instinctively distrusted them. They got in the way. And he distrusted the kind of person who’d take one look at another man and say in a lordly voice to his companion, “Ah, my dear sir, I can tell you nothing except that he is a left-handed stonemason who has spent some years in the merchant navy and has recently fallen on hard times,” and then unroll a lot of supercilious commentary about calluses and stance and the state of a man’s boots, when exactly the same comments could apply to a man who was wearing his old clothes because he’d been doing a spot of home bricklaying for a new barbecue pit, and had been tattooed once when he was drunk and seventeen* and in fact got seasick on a wet pavement. What arrogance! What an insult to the rich and chaotic variety of the human experience!” ― Terry Pratchett
- “When the rusty shackles of our emotions are being unchained, we can become lovers without a cause, and intrinsically the deepest wells of our unconsciousness may uncover the uncharted territories of deliverance, granting free rein to our intuition and giving love downright carte blanche. (“Another empty room” )” ― Erik Pevernagie

– knowledge, perspective or understanding divined from tools which respond to the subconscious mind” ― Sylvia Clare

30 Beautiful Intuition Quotes
- “I knew immediately something was terribly wrong, but you can know that and not allow the thought in your head, at the front of your head. It dances around at the back, where it can’t be controlled. But the front of the head is where the pain begins.” ― Sebastian Barry
- “Intuition is the highest form of intelligence, transcending all individual abilities and skills” ― Sylvia Clare
- “Basketball is an intricate, high-speed game filled with split-second, spontaneous decisions. But that spontaneity is possible only when everyone first engages in hours of highly repetitive and structured practice–perfecting their shooting, dribbling, and passing and running plays over and over again–and agrees to play a carefully defined role on the court. . . . spontaneity isn’t random.” ― Malcolm Gladwell
- “Women’s curiosity was given a negative connotation, whereas men were called investigative. Women were called nosy, whereas men were called inquiring. In reality, the trivialization of women’s curiosity so that it seems like nothing more than irksome snooping denies women’s insight, hunches, and intuitions. It denies all her senses. It attempts to attack her fundamental power.” ― Clarissa Pinkola Estés
- “Being spontaneous is being able to respond with confidence; calmly trusting that, whatever the outcome, you will have a positive if challenging experience that will lead to greater self-awareness and success.” ― Sylvia Clare
- “Faith requires following the power of a whisper.” ― Shannon L. Alder
- “As empaths, our high level of sensitivity means that we are prone to feeling like eternal outsiders who are in the world but not quite of the world.” ― Aletheia Luna
- “Success is realising the true joy and wonder of life can only be yours if you follow your own intuition, aiming to achieve your bliss.” ― Steven Redhead

- “Life is really very simple. In each moment, we have the opportunity to choose between saying “yes” or “no”, to listen to our intuition, to listen to our true inner voice, the Existential voice within ourselves. When we say “yes”, we have contact with Existence and we receive nourishment, love, joy, support and inspiration. When we say “no”, we create a separation from life and begin to create dreams and expectations of how it should be. We begin to live in the memories of the past and in the fantasies of the future – as if any other time than here and now really could make us happy and satisfied.” ― Swami Dhyan Giten
- “I find that some philosophers think that my whole approach to qualia is not playing fair. I don’t respect the standard rules of philosophical thought experiments. “But Dan, your view is so counterintuitive!” No kidding. That’s the whole point. Of course it is counterintuitive. Nowhere is it written that the true materialist theory of consciousness should be blandly intuitive. I have all along insisted that it may be very counterintuitive.
That’s the trouble with the “pure” philosophical method here. It has no resources for developing, or even taking seriously, counterintuitive theories, but since it is a very good bet that the true materialist theory of consciousness will be highly counterintuitive (like the Copernican theory–at least at first), this means that “pure” philosophy must just concede impotence and retreat into conservative conceptual anthropology until the advance of science puts it out of its misery.
Philosophers have a choice: they can play games with folk concepts (ordinary language philosophy lives on, as a kind of aprioristic social anthropology) or they can take seriously the claim that some of these folk concepts are illusion-generators. The way to take that prospect seriously is to consider theories that propose revisions to those concepts.” ― Daniel C. Dennett
- “Head Vs Heart:
A crowded mind
Leaves no space
For a peaceful heart” ― Christine Evangelou

- “Honor your desire for a new life. Say yes to the small inklings of interest and curiosity that present themselves each day.” ― Lynn A. Robinson
- “Just supposing,” he said, “just supposing” –he didn’t know what was coming next, so he thought he’d just sit back and listen–“that there was some extraordinary way in which you were very important to me, and that, though you didn’t know it, I was very important to you, but it all went for nothing because we only had five miles and I was a stupid idiot at knowing how to say something very important to someone I’ve only just met and not crash into lorries a the same time, what would you say…” He paused, helplessly, and looked at her.
- “I should do it.” ― Douglas Adams
- “Why is sensitivity perceived as being dangerous? When we’re sensitive, we feel things we were taught not to feel. When we’re sensitive, we are completely open to attack. When we’re sensitive, we are awake and in touch with our hearts – and this can be very threatening to the status quo indeed.” ― Aletheia Luna
- “One of the easiest ways to discover if someone is compatible with you is to gauge their emotional intelligence. Are they a kind and sensitive person? Will they be respectful towards your sensitivities? Or, are they emotionally stunted? Remember, we tend to attract narcissistic types who lack empathy.” ― Aletheia Luna
- “When I stopped to take a breath, I noticed I had wings.” ― Jodi Livon
- “Enlightenment is at the source of everything. From it, flows our Intuition and our creative energy. It is the delta of the human spirit ~ what we innately seek to return to, as we find ourselves lost in this world.” ― Kim Chestney
- “How often people speak of art and science as though they were two entirely different things, with no interconnection. An artist is emotional, they think, and uses only his intuition; he sees all at once and has no need of reason. A scientist is cold, they think, and uses only his reason; he argues carefully step by step, and needs no imagination. That is all wrong. The true artist is quite rational as well as imaginative and knows what he is doing; if he does not, his art suffers. The true scientist is quite imaginative as well as rational, and sometimes leaps to solutions where reason can follow only slowly; if he does not, his science suffers.” ― Isaac Asimov
- “Situations produce vibrations. Negative, potentially harmful situations emit slow vibrations. Positive, potentially life-enhancing situations emit quick vibrations. As these vibrations impact on your energy field they produce either resonance or dissonance in your lower and middle tantiens (psychic power stations) depending on your own vibratory rate at the time.
When your psychic field force is strong and your vibratory rate is fast, therefore, you will draw only positive situations to you. When your mind is quiet enough and your attention is on the moment, you will literally hear the dissonance in your belly and chest like an alarm bell going off, urging you from deep within your body to move in such and such a direction.
Always follow it. At times these urges may come to you in the form of internally spoken dialogue with your higher self, spirit guide, guardian angel, alien intelligence, however you see the owner of the “still, small voice within.”
This form of dialogue can be entertaining and reassuring but is best not overindulged in as, in the extreme; it tends to lead to the loony bin. At times you may receive your messages from “Indian signs”, such as slogans on passing trucks or cloud formations in the sky. This is also best kept in moderation, to avoid seeing signs in everything and becoming terribly confused. Just let it happen when it happens and don’t try looking for it.” ― Stephen Russell
- “Nothing comes unannounced, but many can miss the announcement. So it’s very important to actually listen to your own intuition rather than driving through it.” ― Terence McKenna
- “We all have an inner voice, our personal whisper from the universe. All we have to do is listen — feel and sense it with an open heart. Sometimes it whispers of intuition or precognition. Other times, it whispers an awareness, a remembrance from another plane. Dare to listen. Dare to hear with your heart.” ― CJ Heck
- “I’ll tell you another secret, this one for your own good. You may think the past has something to tell you. You may think that you should listen, should strain to make out its whispers, should bend over backward, stoop down low to hear its voice breathed up from the ground, from the dead places. You may think there’s something in it for you, something to understand or make sense of.
But I know the truth: I know from the nights of Coldness. I know the past will drag you backward and down, have you snatching at whispers of wind and the gibberish of trees rubbing together, trying to decipher some code, trying to piece together what was broken. It’s hopeless. The past is nothing but a weight. It will build inside of you like a stone.
Take it from me: If you hear the past speaking to you, feel it tugging at your back and running its fingers up your spine, the best thing to do—the only thing— is run.” ― Lauren Oliver
- “What distinguishes – in both senses of that word – contemplation is rather this: it is a knowing which is inspired by love. “Without love there would be no contemplation.” Contemplation is a loving attainment of awareness. It is intuition of the beloved object.” ― Josef Pieper
- “This withdrawal from the day’s turmoil into creative silence is not a luxury, a fad, or a futility. It is a necessity, because it tries to provide the conditions wherein we are able to yield ourselves to intuitive leadings, promptings, warnings, teachings, and counsels and also to the inspiring peace of the soul. It dissolves mental tensions and heals negative emotions.” ― Paul Brunton
- “Regular people have such a hard time listening to the low hum of instinct.” ― Suzanne Palmieri
- “There is no such thing as chance. Everything occurs as a result of cause and effect; what you do now will create your own future.” ― Sylvia Clare
- “Someone responding to intuition, to chance and fortune, often can’t explain himself well.” ― Alec Wilkinson
40 Empowering Intuition Quotes
- “Open your thoughts to the probability that you are more intuitive than you realize” ― Sylvia Clare
- “Intuition is a sense of knowing how to act spontaneously, without needing to know why. The why question leads to indecision, anxiety, caution and self-limitation. There are all responses which originate in fear-based emotions.” ― Sylvia Clare
- “When you face a new challenge, remember the skills, talent, guts and resources that got you through before.” ― Lynn A. Robinson
- “The material world is simply an expression of the mind; that’s what so many fail to see. We’re so dependent on what is before us that we discount our intuition. Yet if one dismisses instinct, how can one understand or believe in a world that exists beyond one’s sight?” ― Megan Chance
- “And as for the vague something — was it a sinister or a sorrowful, a designing or a desponding expression? — that opened upon a careful observer, now and then, in his eye, and closed again before one could fathom the strange depth partially disclosed; that something which used to make me fear and shrink, as if I had been wandering amongst volcanic-looking hills, and had suddenly felt the ground quiver, and seen it gape: that something, I, at intervals, beheld still; and with throbbing heart, but not with palsied nerves. Instead of wishing to shun, I longed only to dare — to divine it; and I thought Miss Ingram happy, because one day she might look into the abyss at her leisure, explore its secrets and analyse their nature.” ― Charlotte Bronte
- “Be honest: did you actually read [the above geometric proof]? Of course not. Who would want to?
The effect of such a production being made over something so simple is to make people doubt their own intuition. Calling into question the obvious by insisting that it be ‘rigorously proved’ … is to say to a student ‘Your feelings and ideas are suspect. You need to think and speak our way.” ― Paul Lockhart
- “There is a part of us that knows the timing of any relationship. It knows things that we cannot work out. It knows when to say yes. It knows when to say no. It knows when to wait. It knows when something has finished. It knows when something has started. It knows when we have a responsibility to another person. It knows when the ties are untied. It will not betray us or another.” ― Donna Goddard
- “Intuition is the art of the moment. Intuition is always in the moment, in the here and now. While the intellect always moves like the pendulum of a clock between the memories of the past and the fantasies of the future, intuition is always in the moment, always in the here and now. The more we develop our inner being, the inner source of love and truth, the inner quality of being here and now, the more we also have access to our intuition.” ― Swami Dhyan Giten
- “Somewhere between poetry and science, somewhere between heaven and earth, clairaudience is born. Clairaudience is the sweetest mystery any human being could ever experience. Fortunately, it is the most contagious, too. Most, if not all, of my students walk away with some level of clairaudience after spending three hours in one of my workshops.” ― Amelia Kinkade
- “I hope you find your truth and when you do, you stand in the middle of it strong, beautiful and nimble like the World dancer. Because when the Fool followed her own path and trusted herself, she found herself in the World. And by the time she did, she was so high on the music-so enraptured by the dancing, so lost in the beauty, so in tune with herself, and so filled with magic-she didn’t even realize she’d arrived at her destination.” ― Sasha Graham
- “There are responses which originate from joy. Intuition can also mean an instant recognition of a truth, sensing that you are doing the right thing in making a choice or decision even if it is not the immediately obvious option, or an experience of knowing the probable outcome just as it is beginning to unfold. The dictionary defines it as immediate unreasoned perception.” ― Sylvia Clare
- “Trust your inner voice.” ― Lynn A. Robinson
- “Intuitive responses are responses which originate from joy.” ― Sylvia Clare,

- “Visionary decision-making happens at the intersection of intuition and logic.” ― Paul O’Brien
- “As he walked along, consciously enjoying the early coolness of the morning, he turned and looked behind him. People often do this and are usually surprised to find that there is some reason for turning around. Sometimes there is no apparent reason and they wonder why they did it. (“Ordeal By Water”)” ― Percival Christopher Wren
- “Believe that life is taking you down a wonderful path!” ― Lynn A. Robinson
- “When it comes to making the right moves at the right time, your dance partner is life itself or what can be referred to as your destiny. The more you pay attention and practice intuitive decision making skills, the better you will become at sensing the unique rhythm of your life.” ― Paul O’Brien
- “We live in a culture of secrecy, where hiding and lying are accepted as natural, even though we don’t like it. We want honesty, transparency, and authenticity in our loved ones, our groups and organizations, and in our own self so we can reach the heights of our capacity. By clinging to the opaque reality we stall our evolution.” ― Penney Peirce
- “You must train your intuition – you must trust the small voice inside you which tells you exactly what to say, what to decide.”― Ingrid Bergman
- “Cease trying to work everything out with your mind. It will get you nowhere. Live by intuition and inspiration and let your whole life be a Revelation.” ― Eileen Cady
- “Learn to trust yourself and you will create a meaningful life.” ― Lynn A. Robinson
- “Sometimes everything breaks up so something new can break through.” ― Lynn A. Robinson
- “Who among us has not suddenly looked into his child’s face, in the midst of the toils and troubles of everyday life, and at that moment “seen” that everything which is good, is loved and lovable, loved by God! Such certainties all mean, at bottom, one and the same thing: that the world is plumb and sound; that everything comes to its appointed goal; that in spite of all appearances, underlying all things is – peace, salvation, gloria; that nothing and no one is lost; that “God holds in his hand the beginning, middle, and end of all that is.” Such nonrational, intuitive certainties of the divine base of all that is can be vouchsafed to our gaze even when it is turned toward the most insignificant-looking things, if only it is a gaze inspired by love. That, in the precise sense, is contemplation…
Out of this kind of contemplation of the created world arise in never-ending wealth all true poetry and all real art, for it is the nature of poetry and art to be paean and praise heard above all the wails of lamentation. No one who is not capable of such contemplation can grasp poetry in a poetic fashion, that is to say, in the only meaningful fashion. The indispensability, the vital function of the arts in man’s life, consists above all in this: that through them contemplation of the created world is kept alive and active.” ― Josef Pieper
- “The assumption is that life doesn’t need to be navigated with lessons. You can just do it intuitively. After all, you only need to achieve autonomy from your parents, find a moderately satisfying job, form a relationship, perhaps raise some children, watch the onset of mortality in your parents’ generation and eventually in your own, until one day a fatal illness starts gnawing at your innards and you calmly go to the grave, shut the coffin and are done with the self-evident business of life.” ― Alain de Botton
- “There is no single thing… that is so cut and dried that one cannot attend to its secret whisper which says ‘I am more than just my appearance’. If each object quivers with readiness to imply something other than itself, if each perception is a word in a poem dense with connotations, then the poet’s selection of any given subject of speculation will become… a means of attuning himself to the rhythms and harmonies of reality at large. … The notion of a network of correspondence is not an outmoded Romantic illusion: it represents a crucial intuition…” ― Roger Cardinal
- “A misleading perception or false belief is increasingly being perpetuated that the unconscious or the intuitive is all that really matters in any spiritual endeavor, and that the conscious, rational, logical, analytical mind is the mortal enemy of spiritual awareness and soul growth.” ― Anthon St. Maarten
- “Aestheticism is the garbage of intuitive feeling.” ― Kazimir Severinovich Malevich
- “Intuition can also mean an instant recognition of a truth, sensing that you are doing the right thing in making a choice or decision even if it is not the immediately obvious option or an experience of knowing the probable outcome just as it is beginning to unfold.” ― Sylvia Clare
- “Intuition is an essential part of the whole experience of living. Although it will not help predict the future or how people will behave, using intuition as a guide makes life more rewarding. It helps you follow what seems to be the right path, even when social convention or common sense appears to tell differently” ― Sylvia Clare
- “The introduction of the word ‘intuition’ by a moral philosopher is always a signal that something has gone badly wrong with an argument.” ― Alasdair MacIntyre
- “You deserve to have a prosperous and abundant life!” ― Lynn A. Robinson
- “Intuition represents a concept which is made up from lots of ideas and assumptions, not all of which will be common to everyone.” ― Sylvia Clare
- “It is important to recognise that you may have dismissed intuitive experiences as pure chance when they occured. Now is the time to open your thoughts to the probability that you are far more intuitive than you ever realised.” ― Sylvia Clare
- “I wonder why he hastened to tell us that George Hearne was buried in the churchyard, and then added that naturally he was!’
‘It’s the natural place to be buried in,’ said I.
‘Quite. That’s just why it was hardly worth mentioning.’
I felt then, just momentarily, just vaguely, as if my mind was regarding stray pieces of a jig-saw puzzle. The fancied ringing of the telephone bell last night was one of them, this burial of George Hearne in the churchyard was another, and, even more inexplicably, the ladder I had seen under the trees was a third.
Consciously I made nothing whatever out of them, and did not feel the least inclination to devote any ingenuity to such a fortuitous collection of pieces. Why shouldn’t I add, for that matter, our morning’s bathe, or the gorse on the hillside?
But I had the sensation that, though my conscious brain was presently occupied with piquet, and was rapidly growing sleepy with the day of sun and sea, some sort of mole inside it was digging passages and connecting corridors below the soil. (“Expiation”)” ― E.F. Benson
- “You have abundance all around you.” ― Lynn A. Robinson
- “Self-created obstacles often bar our way to accessing our inner wealth of knowledge and wisdom. Accessing our intuition requires welcoming it.” ― Abhishek Ratna
- “In the era where artificial intelligence and algorithms make more decisions in our lives and in organizations, the time has come for people to tap into their intuition as an adjunct to today’s technical capabilities. Our inner wisdom can embed empirical data with humanity.” ― Abhishek Ratna
- “How do you write about what can’t be written about? I try to bend language until it can suggest the ineffable, the great gap between what we think we know, and what we don’t know. The felt but not expressed. The intuited but not understood.”― Paul Lynch

- “Listen to your Intuition – Accept the signs your body, the angels and your spirit are yelling at you. Heal the PTSD and live the life you deserve. Be a SurThriver.” ― Tracy Malone
- “A religious person is able to see the ‘gods’ in a dewdrop, a flower, a falling star, an animal which crosses his path, a sunbeam. When this happens, he has a total experience. But if he adopts an aesthetic attitude towards this flower or this dewdrop, he looks at only one aspect. The aesthetic attitude is a partial attitude. Such an attitude protects against an abundance of other sensations and is therefore per definition one-sided and superficial.” ― Tjeu Van Den Berk
