“It is always with excitement that I wake up in the morning wondering what my intuition will toss up to me, like gifts from the sea. I work with it and rely upon it. It’s my partner.”
~Dr. Jonas Salk
Whether it’s relationships, career, balance and healing, or simple everyday decision-making, intuition gives us an edge.
When we feel stuck and uncertain, it’s often because we’re only seeing a part of the whole. A simple flash of intuition illuminates and clarifies everything as we see the big picture and an array of new options we may have never considered.
What is intuition? It’s a clear understanding that comes not from our logical mind—the part that knows how to do the math—but from a deeper part of our being. It’s the secret of heeding premonitions, acting on bolts from the blue, and paying attention to your quiet inner voice, which is what successful people always do, whether they are conscious of it or not. Intuition is the deepest wisdom of the soul.
I am a whole-brain advocate: I honor logic and intuition as necessary companions. Intuition can be a powerful ally in a world obsessed with pragmatic decisions. If your intuition has been dormant over the years, this is your chance to awaken this great asset that resides within you.
I noticed how the logical mind strongly predominated when I taught a course called Integrating Intuition and Logic for Managers for students enrolled in a Masters in Management program. Talk about excitement! That was the operative word when they discovered how intuition expanded their perception and led them to breakthroughs, unusual product sales, innovative ideas and even alerted them to correct errors that would have been costly financially.
We all have the potential to be whole-brain and follow Dr. Salk’s dictum: “The intuitive mind tells the thinking mind where to look next.” Notice how you go back and forth between the intuitive and logical mind as you surf the pages of this website. Logic helps us organize and assess the forest of information in which we live. Intuition ignites the visions and insights that inspire and awaken the highest in us. Both are required to turn your visions into reality, to make your dreams come true.
Intuition is a potent gift we all have, and one we can learn to tap into and use every day. I hope you catch my enthusiasm so you, too, can cultivate and harness this innate human gift in your work and your personal life, and ride it into the winners' circle. With knowledge, practice, and attention, you will learn how to access the strength of this quiet yet powerful force within you. You will be living an intuitive life by creating a vision, following a dream, feeling success in your chosen work, having rewarding partnerships, understanding family members, and moving with ease and confidence through the turbulent and exciting world of opportunity that is all around you.
Enjoy your discoveries!
