Einstein may have said it best, “Intuition is everything.” I believe he meant to use the word intuition as a substitute for all of the psychic senses. However, this chapter is specific to the psychic sense known for ‘knowing something’ from beyond the physical. The ‘knowing sense’ can be the most difficult and, at the same time, simplest of all of the senses to investigate. It is so natural that skeptics will dismiss it as coincidence, but the psychic takes nothing for granted. You should not either because your soul is the energy that you use to capture or acquire information not readily ‘knowable’ to you.
It is important to develop a foundation before starting to explore psychic skills. The foundation involves taking stock of previous experiences and understanding the way information is accessed. The psychic information might just “show up”, but it is good to sort out whether the information is visual, emotional, or “just knowing”.
Intuition, or claircognizance, is a unique form of psychic ability and is not associated with a feature of the body like the eyes or ears. (For our purposes, I will use intuition as a substitute term for claircognizance.) Intuition involves the mind. The mind is always at work, and we think continuously, even as we gather information from our senses. When we are involved in an activity, our minds are fully engaged. The sudden introduction of an idea about a problem or a situation is associated with intuition. Information coming to us in this “just knowing” form does not involve any work, and we have difficulty recognizing that which was not created from logic or imagination.
Having faith and trust in information received intuitively is difficult. A psychic has to take chances and communicate ideas that drop into their minds even when they appear to be fantastic or unbelievable. We tend to dismiss our intuitions and to ignore our access to energies. If we do not have confidence, faith, and support from others, we will never be able to develop our abilities. Most people keep their psychic impressions private because they doubt themselves.
