"If you have a brain and a body, if you have memories, if you sleep at night (or any other time), then, by definition, you have to be--you are--intuitive."
--From the Introduction
In this groundbreaking, major work on intuition, well-being, and brain science, Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz reveals innovative, fresh, and exciting new ways to tap into intuitions that have the power to improve your health and save your life.
Intuition, Dr. Schulz maintains, is not a magical or mystical talent limited to a few sensitive people. It's a real, down-to-earth capacity that we all possess and can develop. Intuition is as natural as all your other senses and functions as a transmitter of body-mind messages that you can use to guide your actions. Awakening Intuition teaches you how to hone your receptivity to intuitive messages by attending to the clues of your body--including symptoms of physical disorder and disease, dreams and internal visions, voices, body sensations, emotional reactions, and memories.
Like Spontaneous Healing and Anatomy of the Spirit, Awakening Intuition illuminates the intimate connections between the mind, body, and emotions. Like The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, the book provides astonishing new perspectives on what science has uncovered about the powers of the mind and cellular memories. Dr. Schulz tells fascinating personal stories of how she used her own intuition to heal her illnesses and her life and offers practical, proven guidelines for how you can develop your own intuitive guidance system and get your mind and body in sync. Dr. Schulz's always riveting, sometimes poignant, and often entertaining stories of how clients have used their own intuition to gain insight into the underlying meaning of their disorders and life challenges will inspire you to learn your own body's unique perceptive language. By learning to read and understand your sensations, movements, and memories and the signals of distress and disease, you will strengthen your mind-body consciousness and empower yourself to create a healthier, happier life.

Intuition, Dr. Schulz maintains, is not magical or mystical, but a real, down-to-earth capacity we all possess that is as natural as all our other senses. Functioning as a transmitter of messages from a nonrational, unconscious level of our brains, intuition provides information to guide our actions. Awakening Intuition teaches readers how to hone their receptivity to intuitive messages by attending to the clues of their bodies -- including symptoms of physical disorder and disease, dreams, internal visions or voices, body sensations, and emotional reactions.
Like Spontaneous Healing and Anatomy of the Spirit, Awakening Intuition illuminates the intimate connections between our minds, bodies, and emotions, and offers practical, proven guidelines for achieving maximum physical and psychological health. And like The Man Who Mistook His wife for a Hat, the book provides astonishing new perspectives on the powers of the mind as Dr. Schulz recounts her own extraordinary experience as a psychiatrist, clinical practitioner, and brain researcher.
"By reading this book you too can find healing, new growth, and a new life". -- Christiane Northrup, M.D., from the foreword
