Those that have experience following their intuition often say it will never be wrong and never lead you astray.
Others disagree, saying that when they followed their intuition, it got them into trouble.
Following your intuition depends somewhat on your interpretation of what it is telling you to do. It is not always loud and clear and it is pretty easy to get our feelings mixed up with intuition.
But when you make the effort to listen to that inner voice and do what it is telling you, you become more familiar with it and it becomes easier to make the right choices.
If you think your intuition is telling you to do something and you are not sure about it, ask yourself if that is what you are supposed to do. Take a moment to ponder it and see how you feel about it. If you are uncertain, it might be best to wait. If you are confident (after taking a moment to reflect) go ahead.
Often, the times our intuition serves us best is in an emergency, when there is no time to think and we just “instinctively” do the right thing.
