From the Day You are Born, Intuition is Active in You
However, as you grow older, your inner voice becomes more faint due to influences that don’t encourage being intuitive. In most cases, family, friends, teachers, the media—most people that are in your life every day, actually discourage following insight and instead encourage strictly rational thinking.
This can eventually lead to tension in the body, illness, or other indications of inner stress.
As an example, imagine that you grew up learning that it’s rude to excuse yourself while somebody is talking. But what if you are with a person who is a non-stop talker, not giving you a chance to say anything and is being a drain on your energy. So you find a way to excuse yourself, even interrupting them mid-sentence if necessary. I know I’ve had to do this before. Now, what can happen is that subconsciously you feel bad about doing this, which can eat away at your peace of mind, causing stress and physical ailments. This can be so small that you aren’t aware of it. However, lots of incidents like this can significantly build up, with you still not knowing why you are stressed or tired or having headaches, etc.
