Book Summary by Linda Brown

In the present world of "linear" thought, logic and rationality, more and more people are gravitating toward abstracts - such as intuition and faith - to improve their lives. Although we all use intuition unconsciously, it can be used consciously and for such practical purposes as finding people and things, diagnosing illnesses, healing, and even such fun activities as predicting the outcomes of horse races. As a matter of fact, sometimes the less known about the subject, the more intuition comes into play.

Every one of us already possesses intuition, men and women alike, although it is likely that we need to rediscover and hone it. Intuition is about receiving information and interpreting it.

The development of intuition contains seven steps: opening, noticing, pretending, trusting, reporting, interpreting and integrating.

By engaging in certain exercises, and through daily practice and learning to trust, we can develop our intuition so that we will make better decisions and have more control of our lives. We don't even need to know how intuition works to reap its benefits. Learn to trust that you know, without knowing why you know. Nothing in our life is by chance. Everything we experience happens for a reason.

It is also important to stay grounded while rediscovering intuition. Eat well, sleep well, meditate, and exercise. Maintain balance in your life.

You already have the answers to everything, if you will learn to access your intuition. Intuition leads us to know what is really important in our lives. First, we must learn the art of asking the right questions - not abstracts like "will" or "should", but concrete things like "how", "when", "what."

We must be aware of the questions we ask, either consciously or unconsciously. The three requirements of a good question are (1) that it be specific; (2) that it not be complicated, and (3) that it be directly relevant to what you really want to know.

Intuition comes to the forefront when we learn to tune out everyday distractions, to shift our attention, to pretend like we did when we were children. Imagine. Make up a story.
Say what first pops into your head. Say what you sense and think before other thoughts intrude and interfere. In order to do this, you must first learn to do it consciously. Later it will become clearer to your subconscious and your readings will improve

When beginning to notice and acknowledge your intuition, you need to start observing what happens when your mind shifts from the logical state to the intuitive state. Does the temperature of your body change? If so, does it feel hot or cold? What happens with your breathing? Does the focus of your attention seem different?

As you tap into your intuition, start comparing your intuitive impressions with reality. This will teach you to tell the difference in intuition and feelings, especially hopes and fears.

Intuition should not be the sole guide in your life any more than logic should, but using it in addition to your other faculties will enable you to make effective decisions.

In reporting and interpreting, one perception may lead to another. That's fine. Go with these perceptions. Allow impressions to create a story. You already know everything, but you may have been doing it hit or miss. Learn to do it effectively.

There are three primary types of intuition: clairvoyance (clear seeing), clairsentience (clear sensing) and clairaudience (clear hearing). Most people are stronger in one of these areas than they are in the other two and will experience the majority of their impressions through it.

Intuition usually comes to us as symbols and often in bits and pieces. Each of us has our own symbol language. The information we receive intuitively is always valid, although sometimes we interpret wrongly. We must learn to make sense of the symbols.

We can read intuitively for ourselves, and we can just as easily read for other people or have other people read for us, if the right questions are asked. In giving readings, different people do it differently, and each discovers their best way through trial and error. For example, during what time of day do you seem to give the best reading? Are you more successful with your eyes closed or open? What is your strongest sense for receiving images? Are you better at picking out names or time frames?

An interesting experiment to try is the following, which will be done with one or more persons who will serve as your reader(s):

To begin, you will supply answers to questions that neither you nor the reader knows. Write questions (one each) on separate but identical pieces of paper. Put each question in an envelope. Neither you nor the other person looks at it yet.

Tell your reader that each piece of paper contains a question, which they will not see, and you would like them to report the impressions they receive. Tell them that if they receive nothing, just make something up. Don't tell them they will be doing a reading, or even that they will be answering the questions you wrote down.

Hand each reader an envelope and with it still closed, have him report his impressions. After he's done this, open the envelope and see how the things he has reported apply to the question you asked. You will most likely be very surprised to find out how accurately he answered your question.

As a beginning intuitive, translating the information will remain conscious for quite some time; with practice and experience it will become instantaneous. The following is an example of how symbols speak to us:

You get an image of the letter "c". This could be a symbol for the sea. This could be the Spanish word for yes (si). It could be a word beginning with "c". It could be something shaped like "c".

Don't expect to master the language of symbols all at once. It's natural to get frustrated with you readings at first. When doubtful about an answer, trust the image, not the "yes" or "no".

Anyone can generate intuitive information, but it takes an experienced practioner to interpret the information in a useful way. The skill lies in knowing how to ask questions and how to interpret and integrate the intuitive response.

As with any skill, practice makes perfect.
