I live my life by following my intuition. After years of meditation and study I became aware of a body reaction to questions - a yes/no that I could use to make choices.
Is it crazy? Maybe. Has it always worked out, often in magical ways I couldn't have predicted in advance? Yes.
As far as I can tell, everyone's got their own mode of communicating with their Higher Self/All That Is. That's what I interpret my intuition as being. It often does NOT give me the answer I want or would prefer. But I have seen time and time again how it always leads to my highest joy, and how things always work out perfectly.
Our current society is heavily mind-based. But the fault with logic is that we will NEVER have all the data - ever. And even if we did, it would be impossible for our minds to process it all. So if it sounds appealing to you, I'd encourage you to play around with following your intuition. Try to feel answers rather than using your mind to think about them. Give it a shot and begin to observe how things turn out. Be the scientist of your own life through experimenting.
