Introduction by Laura Turner
Intuition is a much discussed term whose discussion leads to no where–much less to the helpful goal that was intended. Few people who talk about the process of developing intuition can do so from the place of actually experiencing it. Even fewer are speaking from a place of knowing how to show others how to use their own intuition.
There's so much misinformation coming at us about developing our intuition that the real truth continues to get buried under a heap of useless and impractical emotions, feelings, perceptions and sabotaging thoughts. The sad thing is, this will keep happening until the correct ideas become so mainstream that all the talk can finally die down.
Some day the only discussion about intuition will come from our friends, the Historians. They will study the times when people did not know how to access their own intuition and marvel at the antics of beings who insisted that they were only following their intuition. Sounds funny, doesn't it?
For example, some experts like to qualify intuition by calling it 'pure' or 'practical'. Words like 'pure' and 'practical' when applied to anything always bring to mind the words like 'impure' and 'impractical'—terms with further confuse the concept of anything to which they are applied. There is no such thing as impure or impractical intuition.
Intuition is just waiting in our human tool box–waiting to be separated from the other mental processes, and this separation takes less than sixty seconds when you know how to do it.
Speaking of someone who knows, hear what the leading Grandmaster of Shaolin Kung Fu, Kam Yuen, has to say about the subject of developing intuition. In the following article, Dr. Yuen not only explains in clear detail what intuition is and isn't, his explanation comes from the place of one who uses it all the time and teaches others to do so successfully. Grandmaster Yuen dispels the myths about human intuition and explains how simple and easy it really is to use what is already there.

Everyone is naturally endowed with intuitive ability. This innate intelligence gives us the potential to expand our minds to connect with answers and answers connect with us. There is nothing spiritual or psychic about this. It is really our mental process, if it can separate its thinking from its feeling, and its emotions, senses and perception from each other, intuition will function independently, as it was meant. No psychic ability need be applied. Psychic ability has nothing to do with our intuition. These two distinctive human aspects are commonly mistaken to be the same. Since there is nothing esoteric about such skill, It is just our mind processing the experience. It is the guidance of our mind, not our spirit, that is chiefly involved to create such separation and togetherness.
Intuition can truthfully be accomplished, strengthened and put to use impeccably every time 'on the spot'. This is accomplished with complete intuitive understanding (not logic) combined with the necessary 'corrections and/or internal 'adjustments' that make the acquisition of intuition a reality.
Intuitive answers lead to internal and external actions or adjustments and vice versa. Such actions/adjustments lead to results. When there are results, they connect in reverse—-connect strongly with the actions. Next, the results lead to manifestation and manifestation also connects strongly back to results. This manifestation connects strongly to our physical world and mind, which is also true in the opposite directions. They're are always these bilateral relationships of 'to and from'.
There is nothing inspiring about having intuition, and no extra power to tap into. Intuition is just the natural process of a well trained and properly corrected/adjusted mind. Furthermore, there is nothing to be awakened, and no need for acknowledgment of any recognition whatsoever. No solemn birthright declaration is required. There is no all-knowing voice within that urges us. There is nothing visionary; nor are there energizing experiences coming together that trigger intuition. There is nothing to reclaim.
Intuition is no more powerful than our other human components. To choose wisely in our lives is governed by our previous negative choices and not by any hidden personal power. It is the previous negative choices that are the stumbling blocks to our new choices. Clarity is the result of minus cumulative effects of previous life experiences.
Intuition is not an inner voice to be heard; in fact, there is no sound at all. There is no need to honor anything more than any other part of ourselves. There ought to be equality not inequality.
Conflict is not to be avoided but deleted. Meditation in connection to negative spiritual and psychic experiences inevitably leads to conflicts and struggles. Instinct is the opposite of self awareness and they are in conflict with each other . No need to take notes unless the purpose is to write a book. The only intuitive tool that is required is our mental clarity, not pendulums, muscles testing or dowsing rods.
