You get signals from the universe, that’s your intuition. You have to learn how to pick those signals up, interpret them and then act or not act accordingly.
Decisions based on intuition do not come from a place of fear. For example, if you decide to not quit your job (even if you really really want to), because you are afraid of what might happen and want to stay “save”, you’re suppressing your intuition and your soul’s call. In the long term this will make you miserable.
When you get those signals, it’s up to you if and how you act. This is called free will. Most of the people in our society are still so conditioned by all the illusory ego-based safety mindset, that they don’t know how to think for themselves and the first thoughts that come to their minds when faced with a situation are not their own thoughts, but the fear-based conditioned thoughts of society.
