Gut Instinct.

Did you know that the gut has a brain? It’s true; science has shown that the nervous system of the gut contains over one hundred million nerve cells, which is more than our whole spine contains. The intestine is also well supplied with sensory nerves that transmit information to the brain, and there are more nerve fibers ascending to the brain than descending. All of this means that your “gut feelings” aren’t just an old wives tale, they are important nonverbal communications about situations, events, emotions, and people that can help you stay safe, make decisions, avoid certain people and situations, and help you live a more authentic life.

Gut instinct – or, intuition – literally means inner knowing. By ignoring our gut feelings, we are, in essence, choosing to ignore something that constitutes more than half of our cognitive power. We do this because of the modern belief that brain and body are separate, and that the brain is naturally more powerful and logical. However, the gut is actually interpreting and magnifying messages it is receiving from the brain – messages that might end up being a matter of life and death.
