It is very easy to become overwhelmed by the constant influx of scientific studies, breaking news, and even spiritual revelations that fill our bookshelves, radio waves, Internet pages, billboards and in-boxes.
No sooner have we made a decision on what to eat or how to think about the universe than a new report, video or book comes out that can confound our well-researched opinion.
After a while, we may very well be tempted to dismiss or ignore new information in the interest of stabilising our point of view or preventing causing overload in our brains, and this is understandable.
Rather than closing down and ignoring what could be vital information, we might try instead to remain open by allowing our intuition to guide us.
Our intuition rarely lets us down and if we listen to it we may well be able to sort the fact from the fiction and make a much more considered decision about what we want to do, or indeed what we don’t want to do.
