Trust Your Inner Wisdom: Exploring the Powerful Connection Between Gut Instinct and Spiritual Intuition

Updated: May 19

Ever get that gut feeling that something’s off? Common wisdom says it’s your intuition talking, and trust me, it’s more powerful than you might think. Trusting your inner instant feelings can sometimes really help you make choices that are right for you.


In this article, I’m diving into the intriguing world of gut instincts and spiritual intuition. I’ll share with you my findings about it, and explore how they’re connected and how tapping into this connection can guide us in our spiritual evolution.


By getting in tune with our gut instincts and spiritual intuition we can improve our decision-making skills, face challenges with more confidence, and unlock our spiritual potential.


Understanding Gut Instinct and Spiritual Intuition

Gut Instinct, often called Intuition or "gut feeling," is all about how you're feeling in the moment. It's a basic, instant reaction, usually sparked by something external to us—like a hint to adapt to potential dangers. It's similar to the fight, flight, or freeze response, an instinct that comes from our need for survival. Gut feelings often react to other people's actions or different situations. They help keep us safe and alive, focusing on survival, analyzing what's going on, and protecting us. It also can be a burst of excitement when something just feels perfect.

On the other hand, Spiritual Intuition is a deeper form of intuition that goes beyond our immediate circumstances. It's the ability to tap into a higher knowing or universal consciousness that guides us on a spiritual level. Spiritual intuition acts on a much higher vibration than gut instinct and can provide insights, inspiration, and guidance that extends beyond our logical thinking and taps into a higher realm of vibrations.


The Science Behind Gut Instinct

The connection between our gut and brain is a fascinating field of study, known as the gut-brain axis. It's been discovered that our gut produces and houses an array of neurotransmitters and hormones, such as serotonin and dopamine, which play a crucial role in regulating our moods and emotions. This means that the health of our gut can greatly impact our emotional well-being!

Scientifically, our gut instinct is closely tied to our Enteric Nervous System (ENS), often referred to as our "second brain." This intricate network of neurons lining our digestive tract communicates with our brain through the Vagus nerve, sending signals that influence our thoughts, emotions, and overall well-being. This communication between our gut and brain is a two-way street, with our emotions and thoughts also impacting the health of our gut.

Research has shown that the gut microbiota, the community of microorganisms residing in our gut, also plays a significant role in our mental and emotional health. The balance of beneficial bacteria in our gut can influence our mood, cognition, and even our ability to handle stress. When our gut health is compromised, it can lead to imbalances in our emotional well-being and affect our ability to tap into our intuition.

The gut-brain connection is a powerful reminder that our physical and emotional health are intertwined. When we neglect our gut health, we may be dampening our ability to access our intuition and make decisions that align with our highest good. Taking care of your gut through a healthy diet, regular exercise, and stress management techniques can enhance your gut instinct and support your overall well-being.

Therefore, when eating high vibration food our brain and mind are positively impacted, while eating low vibration food will lower our mood and negatively impact our health. Furthermore, lower-vibration food will ultimately decrease our entire body vibration and affect our spiritual journey.

The Nature of Spiritual Intuition

While gut instinct is all about that quick in-the-moment decision-making, Spiritual Intuition is like having a chat with your soul. It guides you toward your soul's purpose and helps you handle life’s twists and turns. This kind of intuition offers insights, wisdom, and a deeper understanding of both yourself and the world around you.

Unlike gut instinct, which can get tangled up with external influences and past experiences, spiritual intuition comes from a place of your true essence, belonging to your Mission in Life. It’s not messed up by what society expects or any personal fears but flows from a deep, true part of ourselves that’s in tune with our soul's journey. When you tap into your spiritual intuition you find clarity, discover your true path, and make choices that really resonate with your highest path in life.

Spiritual intuition often shows up as signs, synchronicities, or just that feeling of 'just knowing'. It’s about tuning into the subtle hints the universe throws your way and trusting that there’s something bigger out there guiding you. To really get in touch with this intuition, it’s all about quieting your mind, listening to that inner voice, and welcoming the divine guidance waiting for you. Having a higher soul and body vibration will always enhance your spiritual intuition!


The Connection Between Gut Instinct and Spiritual Intuition

I discovered in my research that the relationship between Gut Instinct and Spiritual Intuition is complementary!

Our Gut Instinct acts like a bridge between our physical and surrounding energies including people, nature, the planet, events, etc. It gives us some pretty valuable insights and guidance. When we listen to our gut, we're tuning into our body inner wisdom.


On the other hand, using our Spiritual Intuition broadens our awareness and helps us see the bigger picture beyond our immediate circumstances. It has a much more distant horizon. This broader perspective enables us to make decisions that resonate with our soul's purpose.


When exploring how various individuals utilize these abilities, I noticed that each ability influences a different set of chakras and they actually complement each other.

  • Gut Instinct or Gut feeling acts on the frequencies of this 3D material world and therefore manifests in the inferior chakras i.e. root, sacral, and solar plexus chakras. It acts instantly for immediate events.

  • Spiritual Intuition on the other hand, acts on the frequencies belonging to the superior chakras 4-7 (heart, throat, third-eye, and crown chakras).

As you see, they complement each other with their different perspectives, focusing on immediate reality versus long-term destiny. When we combine the power of gut instinct and spiritual intuition, we can make decisions from a place of alignment and authenticity.


Listening to Your Gut Instinct in Decision-Making

Listening to our gut instinct in decision-making is a skill that can be honed over time. Here are some steps to help you tap into your gut instinct when making choices:

  • Notice the Sensations: Pay attention to the sensations and feelings that arise within your body corresponding to the inferior chakras. Does your gut feel light and expansive, or heavy and contracted? Trust the physical sensations that accompany your gut instinct, as they can provide valuable guidance.

  • Trust Your Initial Response: When faced with a decision, your initial response is often your gut instinct speaking to you. Trust this initial response, even if it doesn't seem logical or rational at first. Gut instinct operates on a deeper level of knowing that goes beyond our conscious mind.

  • Test Your Decision: Once you've made a decision based on your gut instinct, test it by imagining yourself taking that path. How does it feel? Does it bring you a sense of alignment and excitement? Trust your intuition to guide you toward the choice that resonates most with your authentic self.

Remember it’s about immediate decisions and generally not for long-term ones. By listening to your gut instinct in decision-making, you're able to make choices that are in alignment with yourself and the reality around you. This leads to a greater sense of fulfillment and well-being in your life.

Using Spiritual Intuition for Guidance and Direction

Spiritual intuition is like your inner GPS, giving you insights, inspiration, and guidance. Here's how you can tap into that inner wisdom: 

  • Meditate and relax in some quiet place: Make time for stillness in your day. Whether it's through meditation, prayer, or just taking a few deep breaths, finding moments of silence can help quiet the outside noise and let you hear what your intuition is trying to tell you.

  •  Keep an eye on those ‘coincidences’: Ever notice those weird coincidences that seem to point you in a certain direction? Those are Synchronicities, and they might just be little nudges from the universe. Pay attention to them; they could be guiding you or confirming you're on the right path.

  •  Chat with your inner sage: Regularly tap into your inner wisdom through meditation, visualization, or prayer. Ask for guidance and be patient for the answers. They might come to you in dreams, sudden visions, or just spontaneous feelings like surges of energy in your superior chakras.


By leaning into your spiritual intuition, you're accessing your soul and even God who can light up your spiritual path and help you live a fulfilling life.


Embracing the Power of Gut Instinct and Spiritual Intuition

Trusting our inner wisdom, whether it manifests as gut instinct or spiritual intuition, is a powerful tool for personal growth and spiritual development. By embracing the power of our gut instinct and spiritual intuition, we can navigate life's challenges with clarity and purpose.

Remember, our gut instinct serves as a bridge between our physical and the reality around us, providing us with valuable insights and guidance. It's important to cultivate and trust our gut instincts, as they help us make decisions that align with our true selves.

Simultaneously, our spiritual intuition connects us to a higher knowing and universal consciousness. By tapping into our spiritual intuition, we gain access to wisdom that extends beyond our logical thinking and guides us on our spiritual journey.

When we combine the power of gut instinct and spiritual intuition, we open ourselves up to a world of limitless possibilities.
