According to Dr. Judith Orloff, the voice, words or images brought on by intuitive knowledge, are ‘neutral’, without much emotional charge. Also your intuition is your inner wisdom, your soul speaking to you. It will approach you with a ‘compassionate, affirming tone’.
On the other hand, your fear will speak in a ‘highly emotionally charged’ way.
It will provide ‘cruel, demeaning or delusional content’. Other experts, such as transformational leadership coach Rosalie Puiman, also mention this as a key way to tell the difference between fear speaking or intuition speaking.
