Intuition may also be referred to as your gut instinct, sixth sense, hunch, feeling in your waters (yes, there are many varied expressions for intuition). Is accessible and attainable to each and everyone of us at any time. However, intuition does seem to have a reputation by some as being ‘woo woo’.

This simply isn’t true. Trusting your intuition when you are trying to find clarity may sound “woo-woo” and “out there” to some. But in actuality, intuition is one of the most practical and powerful tools that you can use to be more successful in your business. Happier in love. And experience deeper more fulfilling relationships.
Your intuition is available at all times. Working for you 24/7. It tells you if something feels good or bad, positive or negative. This is why when something goes array you often hear people say “I knew I shouldn’t have…’
