Intuition will almost always choose a route different than logic to take you to your destination

Hello, everybody, and welcome. This is Vaishali and today's episode is all about what happens when logic competes.
So let's get started, I am excited because I have a couple of real life examples from long time back, which are going to show you that even if a person thinks that they are not using their abilities, or they do not have intuitive abilities, they still actually are using them, it's just that they are not aware of it.
So if you feel that I do not have intuitive abilities, or I do not have awareness of it, then this is the perfect episode with some real life examples of how things actually played out. So to start with logic, most of the times involves linear steps.
And essentially what it means is you want to go from point A to point B, and then you have your journey carefully mapped out. So let's say that from point A, you go to point one, and then two, and then three, and four. And when you reach point five, you've reached your destination, which is B. So that is all linear. The points are all on a linear scale, and the journey is all linear.
So everything is very logical, very systematic, and very carefully mapped out. And everything makes perfect sense, because it is all based on not only logic, but also indirectly It is based on how things have played out in the past.
So whenever we talk about logic, we are also talking or there is an inherent reference that because this has worked in the past like this, it is going to be like this in the future. So most of the times that argument is valid until there is a break point where things no longer hold true.
And for instance, COVID would be a perfect example of it. People would have certain habits, for instance, commuting going from your home to work. And because it has been true for the past so many days, weeks, months, years, it's going to happen tomorrow as well. And that's all logic, because it has happened in the past it is going to be in the future.
So there is an inherent assumption like that. And suddenly COVID comes and everything changes. And then it is no longer true, the commute part of it. So now everything falls apart, because your inherent journey was based on all those logical points. And there is a huge disruption because there is no more journey required.
So that's really how logic works, that you just go systematically from point one to point two, point five. And all these points are carefully, systematically laid out. And most of it is based in present time. And most of it has an assumption that because it has worked like this in the past, it is going to continue working like this in the future. So that is actually logic.
Now let's go to the other side. And the other side is actually intuition. Now intuition is completely different than logic. First of all, intuition most of the times never follows a linear path. So just like in the case of logic, you go from point one to point two to point3 to point 4 to point5, but all of it on a linear scale.
So think of having like a linear scale, and everything is carefully laid out on the linear scale. In case of intuition, most of the times you will never go from point one to point two to point three on a linear scale.
So coming back to the previous example where we start at point A and go to point B. Intuition will take you there but not in the same way as logic does. It will take you through a path that is nonlinear It will take you through routes that work best for you.
So it is almost as though you do not have to copy somebody else's route, or you do not have to be in competition. With all the traffic that is going on the straight line or on the linear path, it will find its own path. So think of just like finding routes or detours to be able to get to your destination. The logic uses logical senses.
So I talked about this in one of the episodes, it's called 'five senses is not are not enough.' And in that particular episode, I bring up the point where we have five senses; which are our senses of the body. And logic uses these five senses, which are our senses of the body.
Intuition, however, uses the senses of the Spirit. And the sensors, the spirit sensors are known as chakras. And intuition is the ability to be able to access the information using the spirit to get guidance for the future.
And in this particular example, it would be to get guidance to get to your destination. And like I mentioned before, it is not going to be a linear path. So it will most likely be a non linear path.
And the points that connect along the journey, they may not make logical sense yet, at the end, you will be able to connect the dots. So now I'm going to give you two real life examples. And for the sake of this episode, I was trying to think of I should pick a name of a person. So let's say the name of this person is Amy, which is a fictitious name I just made up.
So Amy is actually looking for work. And this is a real life story with just the name changed. So Amy is actually looking for work. And what happens is, she is all in to find a job of her liking.
She has been recently laid off, and she wants to find a job that pays her well. And she has the opportunity to do the kind of work that she likes. And to get whatever else she is looking for in her personal life, and professional life along with the job.
So what she does is she starts looking for work. And the way she starts looking is just doing searches on the internet and sending out applications. So she applies to maybe, let's say 50, or hundred, whatever is the number of jobs, essentially, she puts out applications to a lot of places, because she wants to make sure that she gets the right opportunity.
So the quality will actually come from quantity. And the quality is the right job. And the quantity is the number of applications. So she starts getting these interview calls. And she gets on the phone screens. And after the phone screens are over, she has in person interviews. And this is a story from back in the days when people used to meet in person.
So it is pre COVID pre COVID story. So she goes and does these interviews and she walks away with an offer. So she had been laid off, she was looking for work, now she has the offer.
So once she gets the offer, she just has to join this particular job. However, she's taking a little bit of a break and she's thinking to herself that I already have this one offer, why not go and interview in other places and get a couple more offers. Just for fun.
So she continues in her journey and she goes and gets a couple more offers. So even though she has an offer in hand, she goes and gets a couple more offers. And come the start date for the first job, because she had already accepted that particular job, she goes and joins this particular job.
So, as she does this, she stays there for like a month or two, and she realizes that things aren't really moving forward in the way that she wanted them to move. So she has two options.
One is either she can stick it in and hope that things change, or she could just be out and find something new. And after some thought, she decides that the job number one is no longer than a job for her. So she calls up the employer from the Offer Number two, and says that listen, job number one is not quite working out for me, I would like to go to job number two. And she works out a couple of things down the road.
And lo and behold, she then ends up working at job number two. So even though she did not think that she was using her intuition, she actually was. And let me just come back to the fact about logic competing with intuition. So there's a couple of highlights in this story. The first one is she goes and gets an offer.
So she goes in for an interview, she gets an offer for job number one, and she signs off on it. So in theory, she already has an offer, which has signed off, and all she has to do is join on her start date.
So she really has no business going in interviewing in other places, because she already has the offer. And all she has to do is show up there to get started. Yet, something inside her tells her that she needs to go and interview in more places.
Now she may look at it in a different way that I just want to have some fun and get more offers. Which is how intuition will talk to you. Not very logically that you are going to find that job number one is a bad place, but more like you need another offer.
So what she thinks is that she needs another offer. And she goes and gets that offer. So that's intuition and logic, kind of differing with each other; logic telling her that you already have an offer, and intuition telling her that you need to get a spare offer.
So whether or not she realized it at that point, that's a different question. But she had some sort of intuition, which told her that one was not going to work out
in a different way, which is to get another offer. So that's one thing, which is intuition talking to you. And then the second thing is logic will always operate in present time and intuition will be more futuristic.
So in terms of logic, everything is always based on present circumstances as well as whatever you see in front of you in terms of evidence, whereas in terms of intuition, it is more futuristic in the sense that it is giving you an idea or a sense of what is about to come and how you need to be able to handle that scenario.
So it's almost like it's helping you to be able to catch up with whatever is about to come. So this is one example of what happens when logic competes with intuition. Another example is there was this manager Who was looking to hire someone.
And even though everything checked out logically, intuitively, it did not feel right. What happened is three weeks down the road, the employee quit. And essentially, they had to start the hiring process all over again. So once again, just because logically, things seemed right, it doesn't mean that they'll always work out.
Your intuition will always tell you whether or not it is backing up the logic, or it is differing from the logic. And if you're familiar with the work of Napoleon Hill, intuition is what he called as Infinite Intelligence, where you have more awareness of what is to come down the road yet, because you do not know the circumstances around it. You cannot explain it in present time.
So I'm hoping that you were able to gain a few insights from these examples. And I'm sure that there will be examples from your past life, sometimes saying the past five years, 10 years, 15 years that you've had to make a decision where logic said one thing and intuition said something else. So your homework is to be able to take a couple of these moments where you made a decision based on logic, or you made a decision based on intuition.
And how things panned out, did things work well when you make a logical decision, or did things work well when you made a decision, more by following your intuition or by following your gut.
So I hope that I've been able to shed some light on how logic and intuition differ in terms of making a decision and what you can do when logic competes and I will see you in the next episode. Have fun
