Intuition


 

Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does
not explain, but simply points the way.

Florence Scovel Shinn

   
It is through science that we prove, but through intuition that we discover.        -Henri Poincaré
   

There is a wise being living inside of you. It is your intuitive self.  Focus your awareness into a deep place in your body, a place where your "gut feelings" reside.  You can communicate with it by silently talking to it, making requests, or asking questions. Then relax, don't think too hard with your mind, and be open to receiving answers.  They are usually very simple and relate to the present moment, not the past or the future, and they feel right.        -Shakti Gawain

   

I feel there are two people inside me--me and my intuition. If I go against her, she'll screw me every time, and if I follow her, we get along quite nicely.        -Kim Basinger

   

The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.  We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.        -Albert Einstein

   
The creative is the place where no one else has ever been.  You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition.  What you'll discover will be wonderful.  What you'll discover is yourself.        -Alan Alda
    

Cease trying to work everything out with your minds.  It will get you nowhere.  Live by intuition and inspiration and let your whole life be Revelation.        -Eileen Caddy

  
For whereas the mind works in possibilities, the intuitions work in actualities, and what you intuitively desire, that is possible to you. Whereas what you mentally or "consciously" desire is nine times out of ten impossible; hitch your wagon to a star, or you will just stay where you are.       -D.H. Lawrence

   

The power of intuitive understanding will protect you from harm until the end of your days.       -Lao-Tzu

   
Trust your own instinct. Your mistakes might as well be your own, instead of someone else's.       -Billy Wilder
    

Listen to your intuition. It will tell you everything you need to know.         -Anthony D'Angelo

   
The best way I have found to follow my true desires is to pay attention to my intuitive sense.  We all have great wisdom within us, a part of us that knows exactly what we need at every moment.  We are born with this intuitive sense, but most of us are quickly taught to distrust and ignore it.  We have to relearn something that should come naturally.  Fortunately, it’s not too difficult; it just takes some practice.         -Shakti Gawain
   
Trusting our intuition often saves us from disaster.        -Anne Wilson Schaef
   
You must train your intuition--you must trust the small voice inside you which tells you exactly what to say, what to decide.       -Ingrid Bergman
   

Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does not explain, but simply points the way.        -Florence Scovel Shinn

  
The only real valuable thing is intuition.        -Albert Einstein
    
  

Instinct is a powerful form of natural energy, perhaps comparable in humans to electricity or even atomic energy in the mechanical world.       -Margaret A. Ribble

  
Once you get rid of the idea that you must please other people before you please yourself, and you begin to follow your own instincts--only then can you be successful.  You become more satisfied, and when you are, other people tend to be satisfied with what you do.     -Raquel Welch
  
Trust your hunches. . . . Hunches are usually based on facts filed away just below the conscious level.  Warning!  Do not confuse your hunches with wishful thinking.  This is the road to disaster.     -Joyce Brothers
  
Women observe subconsciously a thousand little details, without knowing they are doing so.  Their subconscious mind adds these little things together--and they call the result intuition.     -Agatha Christie
  
Nothing comes unannounced, but many can miss the announcement.  So it's very important to actually listen to your own intuition rather than driving through it.     -Terence McKenna
  
The material world is simply an expression of the mind; that's what so many fail to see.  We're so dependent on what is before us that we discount our intuition.  Yet if one dismisses instinct, how can one understand or believe in a world that exists beyond one's sight?     -Megan Chance, The Spiritualist
  
Intuition is the highest form of intelligence, transcending all individual abilities and skills.     -Sylvia Clare, Trusting Your Intuition
  
We always know which is the best road to follow, but we follow only the road that we have become accustomed to.     -Paulo Coelho, The Pilgrimage
  
Come from the heart, the true heart, not the head. When in doubt, choose the heart.  This does not mean to deny your own experiences and that which you have empirically learned through the years.  It means to trust your self to integrate intuition and experience.  There is a balance, a harmony to be nurtured, between the head and the heart.  When the intuition rings clear and true, loving impulses are favored.     -Brian L. Weiss, Messages from the Masters:  Tapping Into the Power of Love
  
Intuition is always right in at least two important ways:  It is always in response to something.  It always has your best interest at heart.     -Gavin de Becker, The Gift of Fear: Survival Signals That Protect Us from Violence
  
Don't try to comprehend with your mind.  Your minds are very limited. Use your intuition.     -Madeleine L'Engle, A Wrinkle in Time
