Dear Niraj,

In my experience, a person can receive visions or guidance through all of the senses, but most especially through seeing and/or hearing. However, Paramhansa Yogananda cautioned his disciples that information received in this way is not always trustworthy. It is best to meditate deeply and daily in order to develop strong intuitive power. Pray for guidance at the beginning of your meditation and then listen carefully and inwardly, at the close of your meditations, for help and guidance from God and your guru, through your God-guided intuition.
