    You sound like you have high intuition.

    Exactly right. There are fewer distractions in a natural setting and the landmarks rarely move or change.

    You seem like one of those people who are guided and who listen to that guidance. I hope you don’t mind but I am following you do you have a new follower.

    Actually with the Nehiyahwak (Cree), Inuit, Wendat and Montagnais that I know on the reserve, all prefer to be known by their band or tribes name. Inuit are not part of the First Nations or Metis designations. Some prefer 'aboriginal peoples' rather than 'first nations'.

    This brings up a question that I should have asked earlier: What do you mean by "intuition" in this context? I swear everyone seems to use that word differently at random intervals.

    Usually when I hear it, I think of "precognition", that sort of thing.

    I'm not too sure what guided means either.

    That's fine.

    Your posts show me that you seem the type of person who he is and listens to their inner guidance even if it doesn’t make sense it always leads you to to the right place such as navigating forests et cetera

    Intuition is knowing a thing without understanding how you know it.

    Yes, no thinking required and yet it is there
    Intuition seems like a slight step below insight.

    As a psychology student, I have no problem declaring that (Western) psychology is stuck in the stone age. That's an exaggeration, but meant to illustrate how other scientific fields, as problematic as they are, still somehow make headway and confront their axioms from time to time.

    The things described here like intuition and metaphysical experiences and "uncanny" abilities to connect with nature and animals, or to navigate, all of that sounds fundamentally human. So I agree with earlier sentiments about us being an older kind of human, less modern, more primal perhaps, and as such, much more connected to the rest of the earth around us.

    I spent a few years convinced that I was psychic because of how much information I pick up around me. Didn't sit well with my degree in philosophy, so I called myself a "critical psychic". Now I just call it human, which term seems to carry extra weight these days, as people and machine fuse more and more.
