Here is a very simplistic example: What will you have for lunch? A soup or a salad? You might need to consider: preferences, allergies or intolerances, is it warm or cold out, what you ate for lunch or supper yesterday, when you last ate both of these two options, whether you like soups or salads, what the ingredients are, whether one or both foods are ready to be eaten immediately, etc…. and that’s just your lunch! Imagine the pieces of information you need to take into account when you’re choosing a new home to live in or when you have a new career path to take!
When we’re being intuitive or we’re in a “flow state”, that’s often when we make the best decisions. It means that our smaller, less efficient (for this type of task) conscious mind steps aside and allows the unconscious mind to sift through all the numerous variables to be considered, weigh them to make the most intelligent choice.
