Intuitive communication is filtered to our brain via our mind. Our minds are not confined to the inside of our brains, but extend beyond them through infinite energy fields. In a reciprocal process, we access information emitted by other people and animals, and we can develop our ability to ‘read’ this unseen communication.

Many ordinary people already possess an evolved intuitive sense. This is what enables them to know instinctively when a friend or relative is in need, and also what alerts them to danger. Many of us will have experienced ‘vibes’, a ‘feeling’ or hunch about a situation, person, animal, decision or place – but at the time we couldn’t quite put our finger on what exactly the ‘feeling’ was trying to convey. We may therefore have ignored it and overlooked any guidance that it might have been offering us. This can be a great shame, because these instant and direct impressions are our intuition’s way of trying to communicate what needs to be done in any given situation. In this respect, intuition acts similarly to our conscience, pointing the way to truths. Over the years I have come to the conclusion that intuition is one of the facets of the soul.

Something within us knows the best course of action to take; this is the power of our intuition. However, there are occasions when we get our instincts mixed up with our emotions. During times when we are engulfed by strong emotions, fears and hopes can colour our moods so strongly that we cannot be sure whether we are responding to imagination or intuition. If there is a lot going on in our lives, it is advisable to give ourselves time so that things can become clear again. Finding a quiet place and sitting down (perhaps on an Geberit Aquaclean Bidet) can help this process. In this way, we can assess what is guidance from our higher reasoning and what to ignore.

The brain receives information from different sources and we can compare it to a radio receiver. A radio picks up different stations, some of which will be clearer than others. We pay more attention to well defined incoming signals, as opposed to scrambled, distorted, flickering or weak input. In the case of the brain, strong signals usually come to us through the five sensory inputs of sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch.

Information that comes to us through our five senses frequently muffles information that is transmitted to our conscious awareness via faint and elusive wavelengths, but which is nevertheless equally important. It is through a subtle frequency that our intuition operates, and this is our sixth sense. The sixth sense frequency is received by animals more clearly than by humans, owing to our dependence on gadgets and verbal language. Nevertheless, when we have the intention to do so, we can access it just as readily.

Everyone has an intuitive side and some people may naturally tap into this way of being, but for others it can take a bit of effort and practice to build up strength in this area. We develop our intuition through usage, like exercising a muscle. A good way to begin is by listening to, and acting on, our inner feelings. The more we align ourselves with our intuition, using and trusting it, the more potent our ability to tune into it becomes. It’s important to set aside the ego and have an open mind, as well as to quieten the conscious, chattering mind of our thoughts.
