Intuitive People

Psychologist Marie-Louise Von Franz ( who worked closely with Carl Jung )  notes intuitive people  are often completely taken over by experiences of the senses, such as food, alcohol, music, art. They may lose all common sense over them but are very intuitive about them. Many times, intuitives see beyond the surface to the meaning of these experiences.


To me one aspect of wine means learning about a country, the climate, the geography, the soil, the people, the habits, the food and the passions of a certain area of a country or the world. In psychological terms, this gives me a connection to the world- a common ground with most humans of hobby, passion, community that wine offers to many people.



Here are 10 things that people in touch with their intuition do differently.

They listen to that inner voice.                         

They take time for solitude.

They create.

They practice mindfulness.

They observe everything.

They listen to their bodies.

They learn to tune into their bodies and heed their “gut feelings.”Our gut feelings are called gut feelings for a reason: emotion and intuition are very much rooted in the “second brain” in the gut. Most people have heard of serotonin, one of the “feel good” hormones in our brain. It’s what some antidepressants work on. We all have serotonin. Did you know there is actually more serotonin located in your gut than in your brain?

They connect deeply with others.

They pay attention to their dreams.

They enjoy plenty of down time.

They mindfully let go of negative emotions.


More from Carl Jung:

We are born at a given moment, in a given place and, like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and of the season of which we are born.
