Intuition is the ability to know something directly without analytic reasoning. It is an instinct we can develop that bridges the gap between the conscious and non-conscience parts of our minds. We have to be completely objective, without desires and attachments, so we can get clarity in our decision-making process. Those who have it can utilize this gift. It is non-conscious thinking. There is no real proof it can work all the time, as it is based on a feeling rather than a fact. I was told by my Master to use the intuition of a family member, as I do not have good intuition. I get carried away with what people tell me. I believe them. If I had good intuition, I would have stayed away from deals that ended up in big losses. There is no training required, as the brain is on auto-pilot and the feeling comes. However, intuition in spirituality is different. Your gut feeling and your moral compass work hand in hand. Our brain spends 80 percent of the time on non-conscious thoughts. All the mind does is try to simply feel good. Nothing can make you feel better than linking with the divine self, which is linked to peace and wisdom. This instinct, to be permanently happy, is ingrained within each one of us. Some people, who get tired of all temporary happiness, follow their intuition and that leads them to permanent joy. So, if, like me, you do not have good instincts, at least follow your inner instincts. This will aid you in creating a new, deeper relationship with the self. — Satish Daryanani
