Intuitive – Using or based on what one feels to be true even without conscious reasoning; instinctive.
We are born with everything we need to avoid a potentially dangerous situation or person, but we spend years unlearning and disowning those tools. We are untaught by our culture, our schools, and for some, our families. We quiet our voices. We smooth our dresses. We look away. Instead of embracing the gut feelings that scream run, we dismiss lifesaving instincts and premonitions and curse our anxiety. We ignore to a fault, and give complete strangers, perhaps predators, benefit of the doubt. We let them take possession of our bodies, our space, our well being, and sometimes our lives. We marry, date, and partner against all better judgment, silencing the little voice that says, “there’s something wrong with him.”
This course, Intuitive Self Defense, is meant to wake you up.
