intuition/instinctive feeling


Explanation:
this might sum it up:

intuition: (Oxford Dictionary):

1. the ability to understand something immediately without the need for concious reasoning.

2. a thing that one knows or considers likely from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning.

but to stick to original. With the context given, it means:

the instinctive feeling of what is right and what is wrong.
