Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – D. G. Kaye Explores the Realms of Relationships – August 2020 – #Intuition – Do you trust your gut instincts?


Welcome to my August edition of Realms of Relationships. Today I’m going to talk about our intuition, how to trust it, and how to sharpen our own intuitive skills.




What is intuition? There are a plethora of descriptions and explanations for intuition. But the basic mechanics of how it works is with our natural instinctual reaction – memories usually trigger something from a past lesson, which the mind often overlooks. In the same way we know when there’s danger around, intuition or our 6th sense, is automatically activated within us.

The term ‘gut instinct’ is often associated with intuition. But did you know there is a physical connection between the brain and the gut? This is no myth. Deep within the tissue of our guts is what’s called the enteric system. There is a scientific explanation for the correlation of things we feel internally, which are connected from the brain to the gut. When my intuition is trying to get my attention, it feels like an intestinal tug in the stomach is how I explain it. Thus, the said correlation between the brain and the intestines is a sign for me.


Brain/gut connection


We’ve all had that ‘familiar’ feeling, often labeled as a déjà vu moment when our instincts pick up on a remembered moment from the past – which doesn’t necessarily mean the triggered sense of familiarity occurred in our present life, but perhaps from a past life? Déjà vu translates to ‘already seen’ from French. It’s a common term we all use when we come upon a moment that feels so familiar, having us feeling as though we’ve already been in or experienced that precise moment, quite possibly from another place and time, as it’s an inexplicable feeling without an exact recollection of where the experience was first felt.




Intuition is often referred to as ‘non-conscious emotional information’. Einstein had referred to it as a gift. It’s a sense of knowing without a rational and sometimes inexplicable fact. Many say that only psychics and mediums are guided by intuition, but intuition is a culmination of all things we’ve learned in our experiences that are stored in the archives of our minds, which quite possibly become the catalyst for our heightened alert system, ignited by a situation that feels remembered. Material retained is deeply buried within us, although we’re unaware of the influence the sum of our memories have on us. . . please hop over to Sally’s blog to continue reading.

  1. Thanks for sharing this valuable information, Debby.

    In answer to your question, yes, I do trust my intuition. There were a few times in my young adulthood, I ignored the messages and let’s say I learned my lesson.



  2. A very reasoned and rational approach to the subject of intuition. Very well set out in an easy way to be understood. I believe intuition is a gift and one that has saved me a few times.


  3. Good overview of everything. I especially liked the discussion on ‘gut instinct’. I agree–it’s the brain catching clues our conscious doesn’t and sharing them with the body.


  4. I think I’ve heard this somewhere before. . . LOL. My “intuition,” if you can call it that for this context, is what the next words will be out of a character’s lines in TV episode or a movie. Drives her nuts if I vocalize it.


  5. Such a fascinating topic, Debby. Is it an acute sensitivity to body language or a strange infusion of energy into the air? Or both. This is another example of how little we know about the “invisible” world. I’ve learned to pay close attention to gut feelings and it’s never led me wrong. Great share. 🙂


    1. Thanks so much Diana. Yes it seems many of have learned. After a few ignored nudges, we gradually can learn to trust ourselves. Thanks so much for reading. ❤


  6. Fascinating subject, Deb. I used to experience deja vu a lot when I was young, but not quite so much now. But yes on the ‘gut instinct’. I know exactly what you mean about that feeling in the stomach, it really is a physical sensation. Heading over to Sally’s to read the rest now 🙂 ❤ xoxoxo


  7. Just a wonderful write dear Debby, and I think you already know how much I resonate with it… I am a great believer in my gut instinct, and following my intuition…. And when I have ignored it… It has usually been to my detriment… and I have wished I listened to my first instinctive response what my gut was initially telling me…

    The Knowing one KNOWS, you cannot put it into words, unless someone also knows how that feels… And I know You know that feeling..
    And you are so right.. We ALL have those instincts within us… but we for the most part ignore them, and over time we have lost that ability to tune in to them and ‘Feel’ what our instincts are telling us….

    Now is a very good time to tune into those instincts… World Wide!

    Sending love and Blessings Debby.. really enjoyed reading this post my friend..
    Happy relaxing weekend to you …
    Much love ❤ 💛💜💛


    1. Hello Sue. Thanks so much, and thanks for confirming. Yes, we all get the nudge, but it’s up to us to learn to listen to it. I think we’ve all had regrets for not doing so. I am all tuned in my friend. Glad you enjoyed. And thanks for your lovely wishes. Wishing you a blessed and peaceful long weekend. Hugs and love across the pond coming your way! ❤ xoxo ❤
