The Empath’s intuitive antenna is always ‘on’ sensing what is right or wrong in their world. For the most part, all Empaths have a strong sense of intuition. It is part of who they are and serves them in many ways.
Understanding how to read their intuition is incredibly beneficial for any Empath. And, to discover how to do this, they need to become better acquainted with their gut sensations.
The “feelings” within the gut, or solar plexus region, are coming from what is known as the second brain. The sensations come from the enteric nervous system, a network of neurons lining the gut, and responsible for the “butterflies” felt in the stomach area.
Science now recognizes what ancient yogis discovered hundreds of years ago: that the emotions are influenced by the gut nerves.
Everyone feels excitement fear and nervousness in the gut area, but the Empaths feel it so much more.
Your mind provides logic and the ability to figure out complex problems, but the gut offers intuitive responses.
Through its promptings the gut alerts you when to act or not, it guides you towards certain paths, and endeavours to keep you safe. It does this through you emotional sensations, which I will refer to from hereon in as your solar-intuition. (These sensations are felt around the solar plexus, which is also known as the seat of emotions.)
When you can understand and trust your ‘gut-feelings’, your solar intuition will then guide you through life simply by the way something feels.
The more attuned you become the more adept you are at differentiating between the many subtleties of your gut’s promptings. But one thing an Empath will benefit from is taking heed of them.
How to Read the Feelings
When it comes to decision-making, you can turn to your solar-intuition for guidance. If, for example, a certain choice causes a heavy sense of dread in the gut that choice is likely not a good one. If a decision feels calm, peaceful or uplifting then that choice is probably safe.
Your ego-mind (or another person) may tell you otherwise, but the Empath’s feelings are nearly always spot-on once you ‘understand’ how to interpret them. I place extra emphasis on ‘understanding’ how to interpret them for a reason!
When learning to read the solar intuition an Empath should become aware of the discomfort caused by fear…
Fear of the unknown or a fear of stepping from one’s ‘comfort zone’ is often confused with the vibration of a bad choice.
Just because you have fear about a new path does not make it the wrong path. And this is why knowing how to discern between gut-sensations is imperative. It is often the first sensation you feel that is the correct one, after that is when doubt (fear) kicks in.
As the old saying goes: ‘doubt is your greatest traitor‘. If you start having doubts, after initially feeling positive about doing something, they often hold you back and prevent you from doing it.
That said, it is also easy to ignore your solar intuition’s warnings when you have a strong desire to do or try something your gut is telling you not to do.
You will look back on your life now and remember a time when you disregarded your solar-intuition’s promptings not to do something and went ahead and did it anyway. I guarantee whatever it was you ignored it came back to bite you. And this is why you have such vivid memories of ignoring it.
The good thing is you can use that event, and gut sensation, as a point of reference for right or wrong decisions.
If something feels off in your gut area, about a situation it is the time to start the questions. Because you don’t always get your answers as a worded message you have to provoke internal responses by questioning your Self.
Questions such as: ‘Is this the right path for me?’ or ‘Should I let this person into my life?’ will give you gut sensations you can then interpret.
You don’t always get the answers you want to hear but always trust your solar intuition!
Developing your intuition helps you better gauge your solar intuition. If you want to develop as an Empath and find your true power then understanding your solar intuition will help make this happen
