Ask Dr. Orloff

What is the difference between intuition and resistance?

Question: How do you tell the difference between protective intuition and a boundary?

Example: Faced with a situation which is new (i.e. I have no experience of), I may feel my feelings saying 'no' to it. That could be intuition saying 'Danger! Not good for you', and it could also be just a natural human reluctance to change - i.e. to try something new...

I run across this and variations on it a lot.

Answer: In general, protective intuitions come from a neutral place inside, and doesn’t have an intense emotional charge. In my book, 'Guide to Intuitive Healing' I do into detail about fear VS intuition and give five steps on how and what to listen to with your intuition. Also do this: If you have any doubt about a situation go into meditation. Get quiet. Ask yourself, 'Am I scared to go ahead with this?' Then listen to the inner response. Then ask yourself, 'Is there real danger here for me?” The tune in again. My sense of you is that you're ready to begin to explore new relationships and stretch your heart. This is good. Even if you get hurt--we all do when we risk for love, friendship, romance, or work--we must feel strong enough to pick ourselves up again, and keep moving forward with an open heart. Keep doing work to strengthen your heart so you feel the inner power to handle anything.

All best,
Judith Orloff
