Insightful Instinct Quotes
These instinct quotes show you just how universal this experience really is. Everyone receives information and guidance on an instinctual level. It’s just a matter of listening and following the guidance you receive.
Some people would say that instincts and intuition are two words for the same thing. I would say that they are, for the most part, and that intuition experienced on a physical level would be more likely to be called instinct. How do you experience inner guidance?
My wish is that these instinct quotes are fun for you to read and encourage you to tune in to and follow your instincts!
Tapping Into Your Animal Instincts
"Be a good animal, true to your animal instincts."
David Herbert Lawrence
"Your natural instinct, from your broadest Nonphysical perspective, is to know your power. Fear is a vibration when you feel powerless. Your natural instinctual Nonphysical vibration is to know your worthiness, know your rightness, know your value. And the feeling of fear is always when you are contradicting that thought."
Abraham/Esther Hicks, El Paso, TX, 2/12/00
”I believe in instinct, not reason. When reason is right, nine times out of ten it is impotent, and when it prevails, nine times out of ten it is wrong.”

"Sometimes you walk into things, that, if you were paying attention, vibrationally, you would know right from the beginning that it wasn't what you are wanting. In most cases, your initial knee-jerk response was a pretty good indicator of how it was going to turn out later. The things that give most of you the most grief are those things that initially you had a feeling response about, but then you talked yourself out of it for one reason or another."
Abraham/Esther Hicks, Boston, MA, 10/4/97
”Today I trust my instinct, I trust myself. Finally.”
”I rely far more on gut instinct than researching huge amounts of statistics.”
Sir Richard Branson
"And becoming aware of one's true inner nature, instinctive gut feelings, is not generally thought by those who experience it to be in conflict with the essence of one's spiritual knowledge, but more of a Gnostic direct experience of the Sacred experienced in the gut or all of nature that is greater than us and is connected to us through the gut instincts."
Martha Char Love and Robert W. Sterling, What's Behind Your Belly Button?: A Psychological Perspective of the Intelligence of Human Nature and Gut Instinct
"[My choice about scripts] is just a question of what I fall in love with. You have to use some kind of instinct meter about it. I think I'm getting closer to my instincts now. I don't think there needs to be a plan. I think there needs to be love. I think you need to love what you're doing and then the rest is anybody's guess."
”I decided that it was not wisdom that enabled poets to write their poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean.”
