When used correctly, our intuition is a superpower: it allows us to think long term, foresee key events in our life, and make decisions based on a lot of different factors rather than just one or two.

Through our intuition, we can also tune in to our higher self and understand what truly matters to us, and what we truly desire in life. So it’s important that you listen to your inner voice, and trust your gut feeling.

Here is a list of a hundred great quotes about intuition — enjoy!
