Ask Dr. Orloff

How does ADD effect intuition?

Question: Dear Dr. Orloff,

I am 57 years old with ADHD and have a hard time reading people. I think that it is getting easier for me, but I still have a long way to go. Does having ADHD affect my capacity for intuition and perceiving what type of energy people are radiating? Are there specific things that can help those with ADHD develop better intuition?
Thanks,
Rosanna

Answer: Dear Rosanna,

The great lesson for those with ADD is to learn how to center and ground yourself. I recommend the 3 Minute Meditation I suggest in Emotional Freedom. Practice this throughout the day to focus yourself and limit distractions. You have the power to focus you attention, calm the busy thoughts. Then you can have the stillness to tune into intuition. The only thing that stops you from tuning into intuition is a busy mind.
All the best,
Judith
