How to Supercharge Your Inner Wisdom to Think Fast and Make Great Decisions

you keep your eye on the ball when you can’t see it? With intuition, of course!
This image was one that a group of business executives developed to explain why
intuition is so important in business. Back in the late 20th
century, when these movers and shakers got together in Geneva, Switzerland, to
discuss the future of business, one of the main topics was the inadequacy of
mathematical models based on data collection. They lamented that by the time the
data was collected and analyzed, everything had already changed, leaving the
model out of date. There had to be a way to assess circumstances in a more
timely manner. They predicted that intuition would be the most important human
resource in the 21st
century. Given the number of books that are now out there with intuition in the
title, one might think those visionary business people were onto something.
good example of this approach to intuition, making it practical and worthwhile
to the bottom line, but with a strong human interest element to balance any
“corporate” ideology, is the new book by professional intuitive Lynn A.
Put Your Intuition to Work: How to Supercharge your
Inner Wisdom to Think Fast and Make Great Decisions.
The author of the well-received earlier book,
Divine Intuition: Your Inner Guide to Purpose, Peace,
and Prosperity, Lynn is a member of the
Intuition Network, a long-standing association of professional intuitives who
began their collaboration around the time that we first learned about the
challenge of watching the invisible moving ball.
Although the book does live up to its title, helping you
get your intuition actually involved in your life’s activities and decisions, it
could as well be titled, “Making your intuition work for you!” I say that
because more than any other book, Lynn gives many examples of how it FEELS to
have an intuition, to be prompted by an intuition, or held back by an intuition.
She also deals with what I’ve found to be a common stumbling block: “How can I
tell if it is an intuition and not my hopes or fears talking?” I know from my
experience that this question is not an easy one to answer. Part of the reason
is that it requires shifting our focus from “an intuition”—it’s image is a light
bulb turning on—to the process of “being intuitive,” whose image is more of
feeling one’s way in the dark. Whereas most folks want an upfront answer, for
security’s sake, as to whether or not to trust a gut feeling, the fact of the
matter is that what it takes is trusting oneself in a process. Intuition often
suggests a direction, and when that is followed, more information comes along.
Lynn has a lot to share with us to help us learn the path of trusting our
Another thing that is unique to Lynn’s book is that she
is willing to accept both models of intuition, the rational model and the
irrational one. The rational model is that our intuitions comes from our past
experience, and involve “quick thinking” and “pattern recognition.” No ESP about
it. The other model is more of a spiritual model, invoking the “non-local mind,”
or “universal intelligence.” Lyn is able to embrace both models and give hints
on how to benefit from each.
On a practical note, Lynn’s book is full of exercises,
quick experiments, and many other features to stimulate the reader to take
action. It is in the doing that the understanding comes and her book stimulates
a lot of doing!
