Intuition comes from attention to inner self

Posted June 10, 2006

Q. What is intuition? -- W.R., Boca Raton

A. Nancy Pohle and Ellen Selover of the Association for Research and Enlightenment have addressed this question in detail. They illustrate below that intuitive impressions come in a variety of different ways.

"Clairvoyance [clear seeing or clear vision] is experienced when an individual discerns objects, people, or situations, not with the physical eyes, but with an internal sense sometimes referred to as the `third eye.'

"Clairaudience [clear hearing] is the ability to receive thoughts or information about a person or situation through an auditory sense instead of a visual one. It often comes as a voice that is literally heard either directly in the brain or through the auditory sense, as if it comes from beside or behind the person.

"Clairsentience [clear sensing] is probably the most frequent way intuition manifests in our lives; through hunches, gut feelings, or a sense of knowing. This `sensing' is often accompanied by a physical sensation in the solar plexus or in the heart area.

"At times, intuition may come as a thought that walks across the mind in a natural although subtle manner. When intuition comes to us in this way, it is so much like the regular musings of our mind that we can easily miss, dismiss or mistake for our own ruminations."

Edgar Cayce said, "Seek not from without, but to those voices, feelings and vibrations that arise from within."

The regular practice of prayer and meditation will open the channels for intuitive communication.

The more spiritually attuned we become, the greater our ability to understand, interpret and follow through on the guidance we receive.
