Intuition, a marvellous "tool"

INTUITION that marvellous ‘tool’ which is available to us naturally, but which we use little or ‘ineptly’ … simply because we do not know how to do it.

Once we know how to listen to the voice of our intuition, the ‘opaque smokescreen’ estranging us from our happy fate disappears forever!

Perhaps you do not know it yet, but your intuition is your best friend and it will never trick you. Your intuition is like a beacon in the middle of the night.

Your intuition is the ally and the faithful servant of the Guide to Love and Light that is your lucky Star.

But in order to benefit fully from the thousand and one services that it can perform for you, you must be determined to listen to it. This is most often the difficult part.

Whereas animals always follow their instinct, human beings can choose to do exactly the opposite of what their intuition dictates. Animals are invariably led by their instincts. For example, if an animal is frightened to enter a place, it does not enter; it follows its instinct, which is indicating danger, and saves itself by running away.

For humans, this is different and more complex because we have a conscience and free will, which means we have to make choices and live with the consequences. That is how the human race has evolved to become what it is: a divine being with unlimited powers.

You will certainly have noticed this: often, when something bad has happened, when you stop to analyse the situation, you remember many signs and premonitions which served as warnings, but you choose to spurn your intuition…only to regret it later!

You need to learn how to listen to your heart and follow your intuition. When you say that you will do something and you feel uneasy in yourself, it is because you are doing something that you do not want to do or that you shouldn’t do. It is your intuition that is guiding you and you must listen to it.

By repressing their intuitions, senses and emotions, people in our so-called modern societies end up not knowing what they want to say. We lose the ability to decipher the meaning of the events and experiences through which we live. We lose touch with our inner life and we walk on into the darkness because we no longer listen to our internal guides.

But first of all, what is intuition?

Intuition can be defined as a type of immediate knowledge which does not draw on logical and rational reasoning, like a feeling, which may be more or less clear, impossible to put your finger on, as yet unformed.

Intuition could be described as the acquisition of new, spontaneous, sudden knowledge; a flash of information, generally accompanied by a vague emotion or feeling – positive or negative, depending on the case.

In the minds of many people, intuition is often linked to premonition. And with good reason since, speaking personally, my experience as a clairvoyant and medium has shown me how premonition and intuitive perception are in fact similar ; they are manifested in the same way.

Intuition is communication with the infinite intelligence of the unconscious (or alternatively the subconscious) Mind.

It is easier to understand when you realise that the conscious mind is in charge of reasoning, rationalising and intellectualising. It is the alert and voluntary part of your mind. In this respect, the conscious is objective and active: it chooses and decides. All the thoughts and images that your mind forms and conceives are ‘dispatched’ to your subconscious which ‘stores’ them.

The subconscious is the unconscious ‘dormant’ part of your mind. This is the subjective, passive part that obeys the orders given by your conscious mind, which executes all of your instructions to the letter. It does not know how to think, it only knows to obey. It is the seat of your emotions, your habits and your memory.

But there is also a ‘super-conscious’ which is located beyond the conscious and the subconscious. Certain ‘psychic powers’, or paranormal powers, such as telepathy, telekinesis, ‘astral journey’, clairvoyance, belong to the domain of the super-conscious. Intuition also comes from the super-conscious.

People who are experts in occultism, mediums, clairvoyants – in other words those who believe in the existence of realities and dimensions other than those in which we live out our daily lives -, intuition is one of the numerous powers that human beings can develop and learn to master (you too, in this case, if you really want to…).

Intuition, (the sixth sense) is, however, a sense similar to other senses (hearing, sight, smell, touch, taste), except that it is not linked to any visible organ. It is a strange thing that little children are taught from a very early age to distinguish between colours and smells, to enjoy caresses, reading, writing, singing, etc. whereas they are NEVER told that the little inner voice that they often hear (particularly before the age of 8) is worthy of all their attention.

It is only by making use of this sense that they can learn to distinguish right from wrong, genuine people from fakes. It can show them the path to follow so that their life will be strewn with roses rather than nettles, and by following its recommendations, they will have access to the secrets of the Universe.

Researchers and prestigious scientists have discovered, by performing extrasensory perception tests on children, that the younger the child, the greater their powers in this domain. All children possess psychic gifts that disappear as they grow older, repressed, deeper and deeper, by education and the pressures and constraints of life in society (the ‘smokescreen’).


I will give you some hints here; they will enable you to recognise your intuitions as you begin to develop the powers of intuition dormant within you …

At the beginning, before you have brought it under control, intuition manifests itself without any warning at the times and in the situations when you least expect it. You suddenly feel a vague, hazy feeling; a sort of illumination from within. Suddenly, you know, without thinking or reasoning, that you have the truth, but without being able to prove it in a logical way. It is located more in your ‘guts’ and your heart than in your head.

The greatest problem which you come up against as intuition develops and this type of feeling occurs, is that you tend to deny it, putting it down to imagination or silliness…and it is often when the intuitive perception is fulfilled that you realise how pertinent it was. Unfortunately, in many cases, it is too late.

In other words, you should seize these flashes of intuition when they happen! But recognising the signs of intuition is not always easy, because it is a capricious faculty that takes on different guises. It might communicate with your mind by making you see images because it knows that these images will meet with a response.

For example, the image of your son receiving a diploma a few hours before he gives you the invitation to the presentation ceremony. Or the image of a friend on a hospital bed the day before his car accident. Or even the image of a person you have never seen before in your life but who appears at your door shortly after this vision.

Intuition also manifests itself through images when it happens in your dreams, in creative visualisations or when meditating.

Sometimes, intuition emerges through sound. For example, when you hear a voice, inside you, which suggests something to you, a recommendation or admonition. Sometimes, again, you might have the feeling of hearing music. In this case, turn your attention to the music: what does it evoke for you? Is it gentle and peaceful or alternatively, loud and strident?

There are also the ring of the telephone or the doorbell. You pick up the handset…but it’s dead. You open the door…nobody there! Pay attention if this happens, you will know that it is a truly an intuition if soon afterwards you can easily link this bizarre phenomenon to a specific event: a telephone call or a visitor.

In the same line, feelings such as shivers, trembling, sudden anxiety or the quickening up of the heartbeat, or an aversion as rapid as it is inexplicable, are guises that intuition may take to communicate with you, to make you aware that something is wrong or, to the contrary, that something marvellous is happening.

There are also those moments when you get the impression that someone is looking at you, touching you or stroking your hair, even when you are on your own.

As your intuition beings to develop, do not be surprised if you perceive one or several of the manifestations that I have just described. Do not treat them with indifference or scorn, saying afterwards: "I should have gone with my first idea…" Remember that the first impression is often the best.
