Our bodies carry a knowledge our conscience brains sometimes don't. There are times when our guts sense danger long before we know why, and all the alarms go off internally at one time.
While following your gut feeling can feel crazy at times, particularly when it means you leave a location with no clear reason, there are plenty of times when our fight or flight is kicking in early to save us or loved ones from a grim fate.
All it takes is one anecdote where your gut steers you right to confirm the fact that temporary fear can be a gift and compass at times, steering us towards safety through a subconscious wisdom.
