Are you an intuitive soul? 8 signs that suggest you are

Does it feel like you always know something that others don’t?

Are you someone who seems to know what will happen before it does?

Can you pick up on other people’s feelings easily?

If you answered “yes”, it’s very likely that you’re what’s called an intuitive soul – that’s someone with a heightened sense of intuition, it’s pretty much a sixth sense.

Read on to find out the 8 signs that you’re an intuitive soul.

1) Your gut never lets you down

Some people repress their intuition and ignore what their gut is trying to tell them. These people are cerebral – they need concrete evidence to believe something.

Other people, like yourself, are more instinctive.

You actually listen to what your gut is saying and so far, it’s never let you down.

I mean, it’s saved you from so many bad situations that it’s kind of like your own personal alarm.

  • When it comes to dating, your gut will tell you in the first 5 minutes whether you should give someone a shot or shout “NEXT!”
  • When it comes to figuring out if you can trust someone, your gut is spot on. In fact, it told you not to lend money to this guy who it later turned out had tricked a bunch of people into lending him close to half a million dollars (which he never gave back, obviously!) Crazy, I know.
  • Your gut is also the reason that you took some big risks and ended up having some amazing life-changing experiences.

2) You’re a human lie detector

Yeah, kind of like that Natasha Lyonne in Poker Face.

You have this extraordinary ability to smell bulls**it a mile away.

Being so intuitive means that you’re a good judge of character, you know when you can trust someone and when you can’t.

It can be a bit weird sometimes because you’ll be the only person in a room to see that something ain’t right. You’ll tell your friends, “This dude is totally lying.” and they’d be like “What? This sweet old man, why would he do that?”

Your intuitive personality means that you’re able to pick up what’s not being said – like when someone is feeling sad and out of sorts. Sometimes this is a blessing, and at others, it’s a curse.

I mean, there are just some lies that you wish you didn’t spot, you know what I’m saying?

All in all, being a human lie detector has its perks but it can get lonely too.

3) You have vivid dreams

A lot of intuitive souls have vivid dreams.

Now, these dreams are very intense, detailed, and realistic – and they contain very complex storylines.

In my experience, when you wake up from a vivid dream, you’ll feel very strong emotions and even a little shaken up. You may need some 20 minutes or so to start feeling like yourself again, and even then, you may end up being under the impression of the dream the whole day.

Here’s the thing: Some people believe that these dreams contain messages.

These could be messages from loved ones who have passed away, signs from the universe or angels to guide you in the right direction, or even premonitions – visions of things to come.

I’ll admit that I don’t know much about any of that, but if you find your curiosity has been piqued, then you should get in touch with someone who knows everything there is to know about dream interpretation and messages from another realm – a psychic!

The quickest and easiest way to do that is to go to Psychic Source – a popular website with many gifted advisors to choose from. Everyone I’ve spoken to about it has had nothing but good things to say about them, so why not check them out?

4) You feel a special connection to animals

Sometimes it feels like animals are the only ones who get you.

Do you know why?

Because they too are intuitive souls.

You must have noticed that there are certain people dogs won’t allow to pet them. In fact I have a dog that just knows when someone is no good – he singles that person out and starts to bark.

But how do I know that my dog knows what he’s barking about? That’s quite easy – by the reaction of the person he’s barking at. Once the threats and cursing start spewing out, I know that something is definitely off.

All animals are intuitive souls. I think that’s because they need intuition to survive in nature – it’s part of their DNA.

Think about it – they use their sense of sight, smell, touch, taste, hearing, and intuition.

5) You’re observant

Another sign that you’re an intuitive soul is the fact that you’re super observant.

Sure, you notice subtle changes in behavior and interpret body language and facial expression, you also pick up on vocal cues – like when someone’s voice goes up or down a pitch.

But you’re not just observant when it comes to reading people.

You notice everything around you – patterns, positions of objects, changes in temperature, atmospheric pressure… In fact, you can tell when it’s going to rain, and what’s more, you were even able to feel an earthquake hours before it happened!

That’s some next-level sh** for sure.

6) You experience déjà vu

I’ve always found déjà vu fascinating, ever since I was a little girl.

It’s such a strange feeling to be doing something and to suddenly feel like you’ve been there before, doing that exact same thing – but it’s not like something you forgot and suddenly remembered, it’s more like it was done in a parallel universe or something…

Everyone experiences déjà vu at some point in their lives, but for intuitive souls, it’s a common occurrence.

Not quite sure why, but I believe it’s got something to do with the fact that you can pick up on certain energies and make connections between past and present experiences.

Plus, many people don’t really give déjà vu a lot of thought when they experience it. They just go, “huh” and carry on with whatever they were doing.

But because you’re so observant and because you’re an intuitive soul, you’ll probably stop to analyze the phenomenon and maybe even end up seeing it as a sign from the universe.

But if you want help interpreting any of these messages, don’t look at me, that’s not my cup of tea. Just get in touch with someone at Psychic Source.

7) Intuitively knowing when something is wrong

Have you ever felt that something was wrong without knowing how?

Here’s an example from someone I know.

My friend had boarded the plane and was waiting to take off when he suddenly had this strange feeling in the pit of his stomach. Something told him to look out the window.

Now, he was in the middle seat so it wasn’t exactly easy, but he looked beyond the large person sitting next to him and noticed that there was some kind of liquid on the wing of the plane.

Could it be condensation? It must be a normal thing, right?

He didn’t want to freak out over nothing, but he just couldn’t let it go. So he called the flight attendant over and said, “I’m sorry to bother you, you must get this question a lot but – is that liquid normal?” The flight attendant looked out and smiled nervously. “I’m sure it’s nothing to worry about, I’ll just check with my colleagues.”

And do you know what happened?

It was something to worry about! They ended up changing planes because this “little” problem needed to be fixed.

Now that’s what I call intuition!

8) You’re a spiritual person

Maybe you’re a very religious person, maybe you’re not, spirituality isn’t just about religion.

If you’re interested in figuring out what it’s all about and what your purpose in life is, and if you’d like to find inner peace, that’s another sign that you’re an intuitive soul.

You can practice your spirituality by going to temple and praying, meditating, doing yoga, spending time in the woods or even sitting in a sweat lodge with a shaman taking sacred plants.

Whatever it is, your intuitive soul is telling you that there’s more to life than meets the eye!
