  20. 20. POINTS TO CONSIDER • The root of the word, intuition, means “to guard, to protect”. • Do not dismiss your gut feeling for a coincidence. It is, in fact, a cognitive process, faster than we recognize and very different from conscious thought. It is knowing without knowing why. Intuition discards the irrelevant and values the meaningful • We deny because we are built to see what we want to see. • What gets in the way of intuition is judgment. With judgment comes the ability to disregard your intuition unless you can explain it logically. Example: We hear a noise in basement at night and conclude it must be the furnace. Person offers to carry your grocery’s to your car and though you are uncomfortable, you conclude they must just be nice.

IF YOU NEED ASSISTANCE SEEK OUT ANOTHER WOMAN FIRST. • ASK YOURSELF: WHY IS THIS PERSON TRYING TO CONVINCE ME THAT HE IS NOT A THREAT? • IT IS BETTER TO SEAK OUT AND ASK FOR HELP, AS OPPOSED TO WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO APPROACH YOU. • NO MEANS NO! AND DOES NOT MEAN MAYBE!
