What is intuition? Here is my definition:


Intuition is the process of forming beliefs based on unclear reasons


I believe that intuition comes from the subconscious mind. In our daily lives we absorb a large amount of data, but we're only aware of a small portion. Most of this data is stored in our subconscious memory. I believe that sometimes our subconscious memory speaks to us through intuition. This occurs when we form beliefs based on feelings and unclear reasons.
