Your gut and brain

Posted by on August 28, 2008 in Day to Day | 1 comment

Call it intuition, a sixth sense, or your “gut”. I like to think of it as the deep dark recesses of your brain. The sooner you learn to access and trust this powerful resource, the sooner you can tap into real change in your life. Whether it’s in business or a relationship, the more tuned into your gut you are, the better your decisions will be.

 

Learning to trust your gut

At one time or another everyone kicks themselves for ignoring that “little Voice” that tells them to do or not do something. Where exactly does that “little voice” come from?  How can we develop it? Read or listen to interviews about people you consider successful. Stories of being intuitive, following hunches, and listening to the gut will most likely be present in the vast majority.

 

The following articles give a great inside look at the conscious and sub-conscious processes involved with what is commonly called intuition.

I learned to listen to my “gut” at a very early age once I realized that the times I’d made a bad decision were when I chose to tune out that familiar little voice inside. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to separate negative “mind chatter” from gut. Try thinking of your gut as a recollection of subconscious pieces of information your brain is feeding you, it may make it much easier for you to accept its warning signals.

  1. I’ve been reading a lot about this and recently wrote an article about how the brain gut relationship is a two way street. It seems that the bacteria in your gut can change your brain chemistry. Also stress can change the bacteria in your gut.

    Also there are more neurons in your gut than in your spinal cord. 90% of the serotonin in your body is in the bowel.

    It makes perfect sense that we should listen to this part of ourselves.

    Thanks for the article and the link about the game show.
