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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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.
