We’ve all experienced intuition at one time or another. You know… when you “know” something without really knowing? Those gut instincts are inside all of us. According to Psychology Today, “Intuition is a form of knowledge that appears in consciousness without obvious deliberation.” Intuition comes to us in various ways.
So, we know what intuition is and how it’s defined: those gut feelings we have about countless things. Like when you’re exiting a building at night and something in your gut screams, “don’t go out into the parking lot.” Sure, that could be fear, but it could also be your gut keeping you out of harm’s way. There are signs and symbols our subconscious picks up that we don’t even know about.
Having said that, I’d like to share my theory on something I call, “Ancient Intuition.” Here’s a question: have you ever been able to do something that you’ve never done or witnessed before in your life? You know… those moments when you just instinctively knew what to do and how.
Ancient Intuition, to me, involves tidbits of knowledge that arise when you least expect it. Hear me out: perhaps I’m on to something here. It’s as if past patterns and experiences have been passed down through our DNA. To me, it’s kind of a blend of garden-variety intuition and past life experiences.
Here’s an example; I was out cutting grass that I intended to save for rabbit nests. Intuitively, I was baling the grass in a fashion that I later learned was used in ancient times. I’ve never baled hay or grass in my life. I’ve seen the modern techniques and baling machines, but have never seen the method I used before. Sometime later, I was watching videos about tribes from various islands, and BOOM, there it was!
I genuinely believe ancient memories are passed down in our genes. Various tribes pass their knowledge down through word of mouth. No books are involved: it’s information shared from one generation to the next. Unfortunately, there have been many tribes or people that no longer exist and ancient languages and techniques have been lost. Or maybe not. Perhaps it still lives inside of us. We only have to tap into it to remember.
So my theory is just that — a theory. But I’d love to see some opinions and experiences you may have had. Please feel free to share any moments of “ancient intuition.” Our world may have changed a lot since times long past, but I believe that “all is not lost.”
