What is Intuition and How Do I Use it? By Michelle L. Casto, M.Ed.
Intuition is an incredible resource and gift that we have been given to help us live our best life. Unfortunately, not many people know what it is or how to use it. The word intuition means “in to you” in Latin. Florence Scovel, a theologian, once said, “Intuition is spiritual faculty that doesn’t explain; it seemingly points way.” It’s also been said that intuition is your divine Spirit talking to you. If you will stop for a moment and acknowledge this, you will begin to realize incredible perspective you have at your fingertips. You have this very amazing power! And you don’t even have to get any special training to start using it. All you need to do is raise your awareness about it and set your intention to harness it.
Intuitive messages range from an inkling to a strong sign or message. Your inner self is persistent and consistent. It will keep trying to get your attention until you finally wise up! An inkling is like a glimmer or passing feeling/ thought that comes from somewhere inside and usually proceeds a hunch or intuitive message. A “hunch” is accurate information from a higher intelligence; therefore, you can rely on it. An intuitive message ranges from hearing actual words, seeing a clear picture, or a deep inner knowing. Some people experience intuition as a feeling, others a gut reaction, others will see images or have a dream, others hear an actual message. Become familiar with how your inner self communicates with you. Once you receive message, check it out with your research and common
The best ways to get in touch with your intuition are: 1.Be quiet Practice taking time out every day to experience silence. Calm your mind with traditional or active meditation. Release your need to think, analyze, and know everything. The best information comes from deep recesses of your soul. 2.Be open Open to gift of intuition and accept what is has to tell you. Many times, our ego thinks it has it “all figured out,” but your true path may look very different than one you are on. Being open to new possibilities and ways of living is key. 3.Be creative There are many ways to be creative, painting, writing, dancing, designing a website, etc. Do something that helps you get into “flow,” that place where time seems to fly by and work is leading you. Creativity is an expression of your soul and goes hand-in-hand with intuitive guidance. 4.Ask questions When you ask yourself questions, you gain additional insight and clarity. When you ask a question like “What is next step I need to take?” know that you already know what you need to know. Trust yourself. You already have everything you need inside. 5.Journal When you write, you tap into thoughts, feelings, ideas and direction that you are not consciously aware of. Writing allows truth to come forth and is an easy way to gain insight from your inner self.

Every emotion, wether we classify it as good or bad, has energy. Think about it. Can’t you feel it when you are angry or bouncing off walls happy? Just as there are levels of energy for these emotions, there are levels of energy for another emotion - wanting.
A great man called Lester Levinson discovered that this wanting energy is a negative force in our lives. He discovered this on a mission to save his own life, when he was diagnosed with cancer and sent home to die. Wanting money. Wanting to be loved. Wanting to be appreciated. All of these wants and more were slowly killing him.
He discovered that this wanting energy equaled a feeling of lack. If you want something you don’t have it. He also discovered that we hold onto energy. When we are happy we try to hold on to this feeling. When we are upset about something we try to push it away and get rid of it.
He found, and Harvard researchers agreed, that when we let go of our emotions, both “good” and “bad” and just let them flow we find ultimate state of imperturbability. When you reach this state about object or person that you are stressing out over, you can actually have what you have been wanting instantly.
