  • Description

    Everyone is born with intuition, explains author Shatki Gawain. The  problem is, most people learned to suppress the natural connection to their intuition and were trained to rely solely on their logical, rational mind. "Many people who are not accustomed to being consciously in touch with their intuition imagine that it is a mysterious force that would come to them through some transcendent mystical experience," Gawain writes. "In fact, intuition is a very practical, down-to-earth tool that is always available to help us deal with the decisions, problems, and challenges of our daily lives."  Like  Judith Orloff's Guide to Intuitive Healing , Gawain spends most of the book emphasizing the practical uses of this seemingly mystical skill. In her opening chapters Gawain offers relaxation and meditation exercises that nurture intuitive awareness. From there she discusses how to interpret and apply the intuitive messages we receive in our daily lives. For example, Gawain shows how intuition can help readers overcome addictive behaviors, create prosperity, or heal physical ailments. It can also be used to enhance emotional stability or clarify career paths.   Gawain has a long history of writing straightforward, self-help primers that cover elusive spiritual material. Once again she has done an excellent job.  Developing Intuition  is a sensibly organized beginner's guide to intuition that steadily paces readers through a wealth of insight.  --Gail Hudson

           When Creative Visualization (Gawain's first book, now a New Age classic) was published more than two decades ago, no one had heard of Deepak Chopra, and seminars on creativity and intuition did not exist in the business world. Now that many of her pioneering ideas and practices have found a place in mainstream American culture, Gawain offers this collection of simple exercises for accessing and employing "a universal, intelligent life force that exists within everyone and everything" through daily meditation. Such practice, she claims, can singlehandedly "point us in the direction we need to go at any given moment," "keep us safe" and "connect us to the soul level of our existence." Unlike instinct, which, Gawain says, protects survival and procreation, intuition promotes "growth, development, self-expression, and higher purpose." She recommends balancing intellect, instinct and intuition, rather than relying too heavily on any one of them. As always, Gawain's conversational prose is clear and uncomplicated, her mood easy and low-key; and, by now, her concepts are acceptably mainstream. She shows her readers how to distinguish the "voice" of intuition, trust it, interpret its messages and receive insight on questions and problems involving work, money, health and emotional issues. This slim volume is a faster, easier read than Judith Orloff's Guide to Intuitive Healing (Forecasts, January 24) and has the potential to win Gawain back some readers in this crowded self-help subcategory.
