There is a good article on using intuition for self discovery over at http://daily.finerminds.com/mind/intuition/intuition-seeing-within/
“By following through on your everyday hunches, you are actually taking test drives, virtually honing in on your listening skills. These skills will serve you well. Everyone is apparently somewhat psychic, but many people just have flabby psychic muscles. Learning to listen to your inner dialog tones and strengthens this muscle. The more you use your intuition the better you get at it. When we choose to ignore our gut instincts, we are only hurting ourselves.”
I have learned to rely on my intuition or ‘gut feeling’ for most of my life. It has helped my in many personal and business situations and by learning to listen to it, it has literally saved my life.
