Webster's defines intuition as "quick and ready insight;" and "the act or process of coming to direct knowledge without reasoning or inferring." It is derived from the Latin word "intueri" which means "to see within." It is a way of knowing, of sensing the truth without explanations.
Intuition is something that we are born with and use everyday. Intuition is present in everyone because it is a survival skill, not a spiritual intention. In this form it is an unconscious tool, an extra sense outside the analytical, logical and rational side of the brain. In an untrained form intuition is very powerful. Intuition warns us who is “dangerous”, when to be fearful, and when to jump into a situation. It can become a more reliable and valuable tool when the language of intuition is understood and developed. Untrained intuition can be confused with emotional desires and fantasies. Accurate intuition enables you to gain vital and valuable insight into yourself, family, friends, business associates and the world around you. More importantly, intuition provides you with guidance so thoughts and actions are nurtured to produce hopes and dreams.
The three psychological ways to gain an awareness of past lives, and the karma associated with them, share a traits of:
You temporarily lose touch with your worldly life.The rote and standard of astrology and numerology do not easily fit these traits. Intuition works best when the three traits are practiced. Intuition then flows, revealing the sensing of truth without explanations. From this sensing the revealing of past reincarnations and the path of karma begins.
You don't have the inhibitions that normally keep you from having such memories during regular consciousness.
You lose your worldly concerns and inhibitions and are more receptive to the complete truth.
