What is intuition? Surely we've all experienced it. For some it comes as flash of insight, for others it's a nagging feeling. Sometimes you just know things. You don’t even really know how you know them. Sometimes those things are so clear and come with a sense of certainty and other times they seem fleeting and unfounded. Either way, it is clear that intuition is part of the human experience. Intuition is not a magical, made-up phenomenon. It is deeply rooted in key physiological processes within the bodymind and is present within everyone. The key is to be able to understand the components of the intuitive process and how it can apply in your daily life and even within any healthcare practice.

To begin, it is helpful to understand that within the manifesting process of life there is an innate wisdom of intelligence that we refer to as Universal Consciousness. Universal Consciousness in the context of this course relates to the sum of the total of manifestation, including the non-manifest. These may seem like complex terms, however, it is important to be clear. The inborn intelligence of life that seems so evident when we look at nature is essentially universal consciousness. It is that which forms life and guides our generic cluster of cells upon conception to differentiate into specialized heart cells or kidney cells. Or the spontaneous fleeing of many species of animals from an area well before a disaster is about to hit.
The intuitive wisdom of this consciousness is available to all of us, provided we are open to receiving that wisdom, and have developed techniques to establish reliability in the way we interpret the information that we receive.
