How do I know for sure whether my gut feelings or instincts are coming from my intuition or fear?
I find the easiest way to know for sure where my feelings are coming from is to not act upon them and wait and see.
If my feelings are coming from fear of any sort, the fear will soon pass.
If my feelings are coming from intuition, the feelings will persist until I act upon them.
Sometimes, my feelings are backed up either by visual images or by hearing my inner voice telling me what to do.
There have been lots of times when I've not listened to my intuition or I've acted from fear. I've found those moments to be only detours from my destination; and I've always garnered useful insights about myself. In other words, I've turned the experience to good.
It's all good!
