Our Primary Instinct is the basic sub-conscious programming with which we are born, and is there to keep us alive.
Our primary instinct is to meet our need to survive death and to continue in life.
Our secondary instinct is to meet our need to be safe, secure and comfortable.
Our secondary instinct is made up of learned sub-conscious programmes that meet our physical and emotional needs.
Our primary instinct will overtake or supercede our secondary instinct in times of emergency or danger to life.
Instinct is the authority and the choice of our sub-conscious ego self.
When we do something instinctively, we do it without consciously thinking, because it is an action or behaviour that derives from sub-conscious thought.
When we do something intuitively, it is a conscious decision or conscious thought that originates from the super-conscious Mind of our Wise Self or Inner Coach.
