A bit slow at first, but then I really got into it. I especially enjoyed the sections on Distinguishing Intuitions (Ch 8) and Intuition and Work (Ch 11).

How easy it is to overlook intuition and favor logic instead, even though the two should be in balance and work in synergy. Shakti has presented us with a book that is so practical and takes you from the beginning and helps you cultivate this precious God-given faculty by means of which we are able to hear the still small Voice within. She takes you from basic introduction "What is intuition" to the real meat of the book "accessing intuition" in plain, easy-to-understand words so that you truly ...more
This is a relatively easy to read kind of book, light and yet comprehensive enough for beginners. However, some meditation instructions are better if they are in audio than written. One needs to read the whole portion about meditation, try to remember it before practice. That's a little tough unless one commits that to memory. The practices are more suitable for beginners as they seem rather generic kind of instructions, such as relaxing your body parts and ignoring the thoughts that come to you ...more
Developing Intuition is a set of 52 inspirational cards meant to encourage the user to listen to that inner voice and feel what is right. Although I looked through the cards when I got them, I find that I prefer reading one per day. Therefore, I tend to pick a card each morning. Sometimes, I answer the questions or do the exercises in my journal right away. Other times, I take the day to ponder the notion or use it to remind me to be more open to the possibilities for that day.

I find that getti
This has a lot of information that I already know. I was hoping it would be a more practical guide to developing intuituion, rather than kind of vague instructions: relax, clear your mind, don't hold on to thoughts...

Actually, I'm finding this to be much like Jon Kabat-Zinn's meditation guide, rather than an intuition development guide.

I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting. Maybe a more scientific method, such as "pull out a deck of cards with a friend and try to guess which one they're hold

Further understanding of meaning of intuition and the exercises made this book valuable to me. It is a simple short book that challenges us to rely on the heart messages which can allow for more meaningful spiritual life and also improve daily living decisions.

Don't Do. Follow. Be.

If you let your core lead, doing the right things will follow. Shakti brilliantly describes this process in easy to understand ways.
The author leads you through ways to improve your intuition with short exercises and some background to make you feel better when you just start out and think it's not working. I've noticed very subtle results, but I'd read the whole book before doing the exercises because it's a strange realm.
Ann Pritchard
This was a good little book but felt like a repeat of information I had already read in her other books. She plucked out the parts about intuition and arranged them in a separate book. I'd recommend skipping this one and going for The Path of Transformation or Living in the Light.
Can deepen meditation practice.
It reminded me that we have many selves: primary and disowned. We need to love all our kids even the misbehaving ones.
Put me on a path of self awareness!

Very quick read. Great exercises for the mind and to help you realize how important intuition is. I've always been intuitive, but this just enforces how important it is.

I wrote a review of this book for ForeWord when I was a book reviewer there. The review is at:

Great validation of the things I've always known/practiced...intuitively? :) And love the exercises, the reminders about "checking in".
Just repeats most of the info from Creative Visualisation

"Shakti always tells it straight!"
Basic. Classic. Good.
