Intuition Meaning, Why Is It Mysterious?

Intuition Meaning, Why Is It Mysterious?

Intuition Meaning, What Is Intuition?

Intuition meaning is ambiguous to say the least.  Because no one can say what Intuition is, where it comes from, or how it works exactly. So it is a mystery.

Different cultures have different views of what intuition is all about. So it has remained in the realm of philosophy and spooky mysticism forever, until recently. Because science has, in fact, found a way to measure the intuition itself, but that will be for a different post.

Intuition meaning

Here are some of the different ways of looking at our intuition

Hinduism Intuition Meaning

In Hinduism intuition is part of identity knowledge. Humans have two arbitrary natures.

One is based on the sensory information gathered through awareness of the external world.

The other is self awareness, the inner world of emotions.

So this is knowledge by identity.

And combining the two, we can extend further to outside of ourselves, resulting in intuitive knowledge.

Living in the state of intuition is one of the ultimate aims of humanity.

Buddhism Intuition Meaning

Buddhism connects the subconscious mind to Intuition. (This is perhaps the closest explanation to modern science.)

Intuition goes beyond the logical mind, into the mental process of conscious thinking. The reason for this is that the conscious mind has a difficult time interpreting, or even connecting to subconscious information.

In Zen Buddhism Intuition is kind of bridge between the Universal mind, and one’s individual, discriminating mind.

Islam Intuition Meaning

In Islam there are many and varied interpretations of intuition.

Because in Islam it is believed that regular knowledge is based on imitation, and intuitive knowledge is based on intellectual certitude.

Some think Intuition has a mystical, magical nature, and mystical contemplation will bring about correct judgment.

Others think intuition is a prophetic ability. It is the knowledge you get without asking for it. It just comes to the observer. It’s up to the prophet to recognize it.

Western philosophy

So in the West, Plato describes intuition as a pre-existing knowledge, residing in the “soul of eternity”.

All knowledge already exists, yet dormant, and it is up to us to tap into the soul of eternity through intuition, a phenomenon by which one becomes conscious of pre-existing knowledge.
Plato’s interpretation is by far the most spiritual, and for me, closer to the truth.


What Intuition is, where it comes from, or how it works exactly, is hard to describe. And the ancients believed it could be anything from magical to spiritual.  And they thought it is connected to the subconscious. Or it is dormant universal information, existing before we were born in the soul of eternity.

It all seems fantastical to me, and it is.

Trusting your intuition is one of the most mysterious experiences we can have.

And even through recent scientific studies have proven the positive effects of intuition, it still remains a mystery. But perhaps further investigation will crack this mystery one day.

The important thing is that you learn to use it to help you make faster, more accurate decisions.

The good news is that this is possible.
