Intuition is that directly perceiving faculty of the soul which at once knows the truth, requiring no medium or sense experience or reason. A real intuition can never be wrong. It does not contradict, but is always supported by right sense perception, reason, and inference. All things known by intuition are invariably true both materially and intellectually.

I also constantly fear what others (or the guru) would think about me. It is hard to have a feeling…

How to Tune in to Divine Guidance

Question from Melanie: Hi I can often have difficulty with trusting my own intuition. Because of this I often use divination such as the I Ching or Tarot to check against my own decisions.
