If you’re reading this article, chances are, you’ve already experienced what it feels like to have a gut feeling.
A gut feeling is a sensation you receive or feel as a low drop, hum or rumble in your stomach when something is ‘off’, not right or awry.
Gut feelings are indicators of a dangerous, ill-intended, or of a not-of-the-divine-highest-and-greatest-good situation that you need to know about. These feelings are designed to alert you of danger, to keep you safe and to help you help others stay safe - by letting them know your feelings.
A few years ago, my twin sister, Sarah and I were on a road trip.
Driving across the country, moving her from graduate school to her new home in the Sierra Nevada California west, we were somewhere in New Mexico, looking for a place to stay for the night.
We rolled into the only town we’d seen for 40 or 50 miles and pulled into the parking lot of the closest and first motel that we saw.
Here, Sarah went inside to check on rooms.
In the car, I waited outside.
While here, I started looking around the desert parking lot, only to find signs alerting people of theft and to see a few random people just milling out in the parking lot.
Let me be clear - there were no other cars in the lot.
We were in the desert. There were people milling about in the mostly vacant desert parking lot.
They weren’t there for the scenery. What, exactly, is going on here, I wondered.
Here, it dawned on me that something might be up. In that moment, my stomach began to drop.
I got a gut feeling.
At that moment, I jumped out of the car, ran to the front door as fast as I could and swung open the glass door only to slam into Sarah’s body, running as fast as she could out to me. We collided just as the glass door swung open.
She shouted at me, “We gotta get out of here!” and I shouted back, “I know!”
We ran to the car, hopped in and drove off - both of us - still unsure of what the other experienced, that provoked them to go running in the opposite direction.
As our car merged onto the interstate and we regained our breath, I told Sarah about the weirdness in the parking lot. And then, Sarah recounted to me even more weirdness in the hotel.
After calling around to the police and the main line of the hotel chain - we got in touch with the 'real' manager. The actual manager of the motel had been out of town on vacation and in his absence, his employees and a few of their friends took over the guest services - including the stealing of the all the guest’s credit card information upon check-in.
Which, of course, completely aligned with what Sarah recounted of her experience and what she noticed at the check-in desk and with my experience outside the hotel of potential theft.
We both got a gut feeling.
We both were alerted that something was wrong.
We both trusted each other and took off.
How Gut Feelings Are Meant to Work
A gut feeling is a sensation provided to you by your Spirit Guides to alert you of a Low Energy outcome.
Gut feelings, stomach drops, rumbles, and sinking feelings are all designed to tell you one thing:
There is Low Energy here.
Low energy is anything that is not aligned for your highest and greatest good - such as situations or people that are guided by greed, jealousy, lust, betrayal, anger, pain, or sadness.
Think about it - to alert you of a low energy situation, what better thing to do, than to give you a low feeling sensation?
The sign matches the meaning, and with that, you couldn’t get a more perfect and unmistakable cue from Spirit if you tried.
If you have encountered a situation, a person, or a scenario in which low energy is the guiding force, it is best for your spiritual and physical well being, that you stay clear away. It’s a sign that this situation is sinking quicksand and if you step into it, it’s possible that you could be swallowed up.
Your Spirit Guides will transfer to you a gut feeling sensation to keep you safe and away from Low energy situations, so that you may be guided into more rewarding, higher energy situations.
Speaking of something more rewarding, where did Sarah and I eventually stay that night?
Because it was so late by the time we finally settled in, we ended up finding a last minute deal in a beautiful, upscale hotel in downtown Las Cruces, NM. The room was equipped with comfy giant beds, fancy coffee for the morning and complimentary hot breakfast. Our car, and all of Sarah’s belongings from her move, were kept safe in a garage behind hotel, where we parked for free.
Your Guides will not steer you astray.
In many cases, they steer you to something better.
