Overview

Every day we are confronted with difficult problems and thorny situations for which we either don't have enough information to make clear-cut decisions or for which there is no easy intellectual answer. At these moments, we all wish that there was another way to know how to make the right choice. Fortunately, there is another way through using our intuition. More than just a feeling or a guess, true intuition is one of the most important yet often least developed of our human faculties.

Often thought of as something vague and undefinable, many people mistakenly assume that intuition cannot be understood and developed. Intuition for Starters explains what true intuition is, where it comes from, the practices and attitudes necessary for developing it, and how to tap into intuitive guidance at will.

Editorial Reviews

D. Jewell
Having just experienced a situation in which I thought my intuition had utterly failed me, I'm indebted to this book for clarifying what intuition actually is and for giving solid guidance in becoming more intuitive. This book is an excellent beginning point for anyone who wants to understand or better utilize innate yet undeveloped intuitive skills.

Initially, these titles seem dissimilar, but they actually bear a striking resemblance to each other in tone and approach, at times seeming interchangeable. Intuition's subtitle is telling: the book concerns unlocking one's inner guidance via yoga. Notes Walters (The Promise of Immortality: The True Teaching of the Bible and the Bhagavad Gita), "Intuition is the innate ability in everyone to perceive truth directly not by reason, logic or analysis, but by simply knowing from within." One taps intuition, which according to the author is deeper and purer than mere logic, by exploring the ill-defined "superconscious" mental state, which resembles a state between sleep and wakefulness. Purposeful writing encourages patience, persistence, and consistency; initiates should seek "calmness, clarity, and joy. Intuition is always based in a deep sense of calmness and detachment." As a biochemist (Univ. of Toronto), Lawford makes a strange proponent for mysticism, yet here he claims that we seek what he calls "authentic" power, a state in which each person is "in harmony with the deepest values of his or her soul." This liberates us from the conventional power of others. Despite Lawford's very personal, workmanlike approach, it feels as if he were rehashing how to redefine one's environment. Neither Lawford's nor Walters's book has broad appeal, and only very large libraries or those with specialized self-help collections should consider. Instead, try Pema Chodron's When Things Fall Apart, which advocates inner peace via meditation, or Douglas Bloch's helpful and more mainstream Listening to Your Inner Voice, which combines meditation and exercise.
