How do we develop our intuition? Intuition is something that occurs when ones nervous system becomes strong enough to allow him/her to transcend the intellect and consciously connect with universal intelligence.
Intuition is a human potential, but few people actually experience it due mainly to the stress that gets built up in our nervous systems and our beliefs. The job of the nervous system is to carry messages. These messages are usually from the senses to the brain and back from the brain to all the different parts of the body. What we have developed is the left hemisphere of our brains, which is responsible for reason and logic, linear thinking, and verbal communication.
In order to develop our intuition we must develop the right hemisphere of our brain. The right brain is responsible for experiences of creativity, compassion, the ability to see the big picture, understand complex systems and the interrelatedness of all things. The right brain communicates through intuition. This ability can occur only when the nervous system is strong enough to transcend the left brain or the intellect and connect with a higher level of consciousness. We call this higher level of consciousness universal intelligence.
In time we evolve into this more advanced level of functioning. Fortunately, we have discovered a means of accelerating the natural evolutionary process for developing intuition. It involves a procedure for releasing the stress that gets built up in our nervous systems and strengthening the system so it is capable of bringing our conscious mind to the level of universal intelligence, which we sometimes call the super-conscious. Once the stress is released our nervous systems become capable of communicating with the right brain or the spiritual essence of who we are. At this point our awareness begins to expand, and we begin to experience (intuition) knowing from a different place than what we experience with the intellect or left brain.
In my book Unlimited Futures: How to Understand the Life You Have and Create the Life You Want, I have provided step-by-step guidelines for what is necessary to start this process. If you simply follow the guidelines in the book you will be on your way to developing your intuition.
