Ask Dr. Orloff

How does one know if they have the "gift" of intuition?

Question:
How does one know if we have the "gift" of intuition? If I do have it how do I overcome the fear of letting it "work" through me?

Answer:
Dear Terri,

Everyone has the capacity to tap into their intuition at any age. It is a human gift. Some children are more talented than others, but as adults we access it. In Western Culture we've be taught to revere the rational mind above all else. But intuition is far more primal and satisfying an impulse. The key to tuning in is always to try to calm the mind--not by trying to turn it off--that never works. But to use the breath to switch channels. Do some deep breathing exercises, and practice stillness. Then tune into your gut and see what it says. It's an ongoing process of getting still and tuning in. If fear comes, keep breathing the fear out too. It's also useful to explore your fears through journaling to ascertain what they are so they don't stop you.

Blessings,
Judith
