Video: Gut instinct: How it works and why you should trust it

When making important decisions at work, or about your life, purpose and intentions, its important to tap into your gut instinct.  Your gut can communicate you you at incredible speed an initial evaluation of any given situation, question or dilemma.  Good decisions should be based on both conscious and subconscious thought.

 

Less than 5% of brain activity occurs at a conscious level. Scientists often describe the gut as the "Little Brain" as it contains a huge number of neuronal connections that are in constant communication with the brain. Your gut cannot communicate with you in words. Instead, it communicates with you via feelings and sensations. 

 

If something 'feels wrong' it is often the guts way of communicating to you that it has tapped into the brains Salience network or Default mode network and detected a misalignment. It might also indicate that it has tapped into areas of your mid and lower brain and detected potential problems or danger. 

 

Conversely, if your gut tells you that things are OK, it could be because your brains Salience network or Default mode network have detected alignment with your world view.  It might have also tapped into long forgotten stored information, detecting a favourable link, pattern or theme.  

We are born with an innate ability to tap into our gut instinct, but can lose the ability to recognise this as we grow older.  It is a skill that can be re-learnt with a little effort and patience.
