A Note From Lucille Olson

Everyone is intuitive. It is one of our spiritual or divine qualities. It is our ability to know something immediately without using our conscious reasoning. 

In the animal kingdom it is instinct that leads them to food, water, shelter, and keeps them safe from harm. In mankind, intuition is a higher form of instinct. Research has shown that it is a critical aspect of how we interact with our environment. 

I once had an experience that perfectly illustrates how intuition works. I was driving on the highway one cold, dark, rainy night. As I approached an intersection where another road merged, I was suddenly seized with a feeling of fear in my solar plexus. I immediately slowed down although I could not see anything to be afraid of. A big truck came from the merging road and went on ahead of me. As that truck reached the overpass, it suddenly skidded out of control. The rain had apparently turned to ice on the overpass. Had I not listened to my intuition and slowed down, I would have been right beside the truck. 

It is important to pay attention when we are guided in this way. Intuition can be a gut feeling like I had experienced, or it can come to us as a hunch, or a thought that comes to us out of the blue. If we ignore the message, as humans often do, we may regret it. It could even be detrimental.

We can increase our innate ability to be intuitive by living a balanced life. Seeking solitude helps us connect with our inner wisdom and creative thoughts.  Practice listening to our bodies will enable us to be more aware of physical sensations. Paying attention to our dreams, writing in a journal, and meditation are all helpful ways of accessing our intuitive nature. We tend to think of intuition as some kind of mystical experience, but it is really a natural part of our make up as human beings.
