Gut reactions/internal thoughts are a good way to lead the reader into the character. We all have them and, because we do, we know how unfiltered and automatic they are, and how TRUE they often are.

I read somewhere that common advice tells you that to access those inner character feelings, you should pretend to have coffee with your character (to get to know them), but that really, you don’t want to ask yourself what your character would say to you (the author), you want to ask yourself what the character would say to themselves.

I’ve struggled with deep POV, and this is something that has helped me access those internal thoughts/feelings.
