Solving Problems With Intuition
Intuition has been defined as a knowledge gained without rational thought, and it
often includes subconsciously perceived information. It's like knowing something
without knowing how you know it. Intuitive people tend to be independent and self-
confident. These qualities are needed requisites to be open to this unpredictable,
surprising and often unconventional source of knowledge that comes from within
yourself. Nevertheless, this is a brain skill that can be learned.
Now get into a comfortable, relaxed position and do some deep, abdominal
breathing (review "Exercise -- Relaxation For Improved Awareness"). Quiet your
mind. Concentrate and review your problem thoroughly from all angles with as
much information as possible. Suspend your judgment; then simply 'let go' and
don't think about the problem anymore. Allow yourself a sense of alert awareness.
Tune in and be aware of yourself physically, mentally and emotionally. Visualize
yourself on a relaxing train journey crossing the country. Feel calm and relaxed as
town after town, home after home pass on by. With no thoughts of any cares or
worries, you're simply observing the world go by. By letting the logical mind rest,
the intuitive mind often comes up with the answers after your conscious focus has
been switched away from it. Do this "stating of the problem and letting go
procedure" just before you meditate or go to sleep and the solution will frequently
pop up later.
Where do these answers come from? First, they come from your own
accumulated source of knowledge and experience; second, from the minds of others
picked up telepathically; and third, from the universal consciousness of Infinite
knowledge. Sometimes the answers come in the form of symbolic visions or
dreams. So be alert to them.
