Or gut feelings, good or bad.
Do you trust them?
Do you act on them?
Are they usually right?
What have you done in the past year, going on a good or bad vibe alone?
Have you gone on a vibe and been totally wrong?
I'm faced with a big decision at the moment, and after doing a pros and cons list, I'm relying solely on the good vibe I'm getting.
Now I'm just curious about other people's stories

OMG, I was thinking of this yesterday while I was driving somewhere and was going to start a thread but completely forgot!
My vibes/feelings are always wrong. I am not tuned in at all. Its actually laughable how wrong my vibes are. My best friend however, is tuned in too much. She is psychic or anything, she just always gets feelings on things and they turn out to be right almost all of the time.

I mostly get it right for everyone else, never for myself!

Im pretty bloody good when it comes to trusting my instincts (???) Too bad I hardly ever do because its just a quick flash in my head and it passes so I end up doing something or trusting someone when I clearly should have done the first thing that came to mind.
Its something Im working on, believe in myself and go with my gut.

The decision I'm coming to is taking a chance and moving off up the coast, when there is nothing really making us go , other than a change of scene for a while.
The hard part of making the break, was the fact that this is the first house we have loved in Sydney for the last 3 yrs, AND with a long term lease.
We have lived in 4 houses in 3 yrs so we face more of that messing about if we return in 12 mths time, but I think it's worth it.
The move would be up to Byron Bay. Pretty nice and hard to say no to.

I now always go with my instincts. I tend to "over think" things if I try and look at it logically, like a pro's con's list or similar.
Now I just trust my gut and go with it. 9 times out of 10 it works out ok
I know some people who are the complete opposite though, my DH for example needs to think things through thoroughly otherwise he would stress non stop about his decision if he were to trust his instincts.

My vibes usually turn out right (although i have been wrong on occasion i am right most of the time) so i do pay close attention to what 'vibe' i am getting - i don't always listen though (then later go 'i knew it, why didn't i listen to my gut?').

Yeah I've gotten those, 'if only I'd listened to myself' days too.
Usually it's only on the small stuff and not on the big decisions, so far

We got the opportunity to fly to NZ this December for a holiday.
The thoughts of it was giving me the willies.
I just didn't feel good about it but I didn't say anything to DH because ,
well he thinks I'm a bit crazy at the best of times.
As it turns out, with this move, we can't do the two, so I'll never know what was making me so nervous about it. That's the first bad vibe I've got in a long time.

About 10 yrs ago I was at a party when one of my friends begged me to go on his motorbike with him. I said no a few times but eventually said I would. We went a few blocks, got off and chatted to some friends and then as we went to get back on to go the few blocks back to the party I had this really strong feeling that it was a bad idea. I ummed and ahhed but decided I was being stupid and hopped back on. We ended up getting hit by a car (not our fault - it ran a stop sign), broke both my legs, lots of other damage, had to pull out of my law degree for a year etc.
Ever since then I've paid attention to my gut instinct and it's almost always been right! I definitely think there's a reason we have these feelings/instincts that we often can't put into words.
