Gut feelings quite often come from the gut region.
I remember when I was about seven years old, two large alsation dogs charged at me and the alarm I felt came from the region above my waist but below
my heart. Then I suddenly felt myself rising up from that same area and out through the top of my head. I was mostly above my head when my father
suddenly appeared and cowed the dogs.
You might notice that quite a lot of people -- when they are very alarmed, frightened, shocked -- will put a hand automatically on their mid-section,
and often they'll take in and hold their breath at the same time, while their eyes and senses struggle to deal with the emergency or shock.
I suspect you're actually referring though to the usual use of the term 'gut feeling' as in intuition; sixth sense, etc. Which is what it is. And
for those who're particularly sensitive to the voice of their intuition, it can and has saved lives.
Re: dogs (and most animals, come to that): it's clear they're divinely inspired. Most people are averse to the concept of transmigration of souls.
They feel it's an insult to suggest they may have existed in animal form before becoming human.
I think the insult is to the animals, who are clearly superior to humans. If there is transmigration of souls, then surely only the most evolved
humans would be allowed to return as a dog? Those judged unfit are obviously being sent back as humans, over and over again.
