Intuition is a mystery for most people. The word has become more and more popular over the last decade. We all know that such a thing exists, but what is it, and how does it work? We find people trying to teach intuition. Intuition cannot be taught. It can only be discovered within ourselves.
Abraham Maslow in his study of self-actualized people discovered that these people were highly intuitive. Maslow said they simply knew how life works. They knew what to do and how to do it to fulfill their needs and desires from within themselves. Through Maslow’s studies he discovered that people evolve into higher levels of functioning, which included the ability to intuitively know, or receive information from a different source than what we have known in the past.
More and more people in our society are now evolving into this more advanced level of functioning.
A good way to help us understand intuition is by explaining it in terms of the different hemispheres of the brain. The left brain is responsible for reason and logic, linear thinking, memories, beliefs and verbal communication. The left brain sees only in parts. Our educational system is designed to develop the left brain. We can teach and learn how to work with these abilities.
The right brain is developed in a totally different way. The right brain is responsible for creativity, compassion, inventiveness, the ability to see the big picture or understand the interrelatedness of things and how all the parts fit together. The right brain is our connection to our source, and allows us to understand laws of nature and principles of life. The right brain communicates only to us through intuition.
The right brain can be developed my removing ourselves from our usual left brain functioning, becoming quite, and going within to discover who we are on a deeper level. This is how we develop our intuitive abilities. It is something that we must experience and discover within ourselves.
We at Unlimited Futures have discovered a process for developing our right brain abilities, which includes intuition. We have simply discovered how to accelerate the natural evolutionary process and move into a much more advanced level of functioning or in other words become self-actualized.
I have described this process and given you step-by-step guidelines for what you need to do to get started developing these abilities of creativity and intuition in my book Unlimited Futures: How to Understand the Life You Have and Create the Life You Want.
