Posted by Two Spirits, One SoulThis article on intuition was inspired from the book Intuition: Unlock the Power by Dr. Cate Howell.
Developing intuition requires that you begin to look deep within yourself.
There is agreement in neuroscience literature that intuition is related to the unconscious. Famed transpersonal psychologist Carl Jung described intuition as unconscious perception that taps into implicit processes and knowledge in the body and brain. We also know that intuition predominantly sits in the non-dominant hemisphere of the brain and is often derived from images, feelings, physical sensations and metaphors. In this first part of this article I will explore the nature and role of the unconscious mind and consider some ways in which we can access our unconscious to aid us in developing our intuition, including signs and symbols and dreams.
