I hadn’t anticipated the huge amount of the feedback we’ve gotten from the last few weeks talking about intuition. There have been a lot of men who have written me about their intuitive insights and I do want to remind everyone that it’s a myth that only females have great intuition. We all have abilities but unless you have been trained, you are using less than 1% of your abilities. That is one of the reasons I created my system INTUITION: THE NEW COMMON SENSE. You must train yourself so you don’t miss out on important opportunities because your radar isn’t working up to speed. When your intuition is properly trained and you’re more aware of the wisdom messages you receive, it improves your abilities 10-fold. Untrained intuition receives messages but has a tendency to discount them as being unimportant.
One way to motivate you to take the leap of faith and start to listen and act on your intuition is to look back at all the times you’ve acted on your instincts and were amazed at your success. You were listening to your intuition! Following your intuition requires you to love and have trust in yourself. The payoff for listening to those inner whispers and acting on them can make the difference in how fulfilling your life can be.
There was an incident where a van with all of my “treasures” in it was stolen when I was moving to a new house. After that event in my life, as you can imagine, I became very security conscious. Since I was away from home a great deal of the time, I started hiding the jewelry I had left when I would leave town for a few days.
Every week I would try to outdo myself finding good hiding places. One week I created such a good place to hide my jewelry that I lost it! For several weeks I looked and looked for my jewelry with no success. One night at dinner, I was telling a good friend about how I had lost my jewelry when she said to me, “Lee, I cannot believe my ears. You teach people to use their intuition and you are not using yours!”
That night, just before I went to sleep, I said to myself, “Self, you know where that jewelry is and I want you to tell me when I wake up.” Well, ‘Self’ was being a bit stubborn and I had to do this exercise for several days. One morning at 2:45 a.m., I sat up in bed and my intuition told me to look in my garage, in an old chair that Goodwill was picking up that morning! Thank goodness I listened to myself and checked out that chair for the jewelry, or you can bet I would have been down at Goodwill buying it back!
I would like to remind you that you can also use the same strategy I used in the above story. Ask yourself: “where did I leave my car keys, report, etc?” If you keep asking, the answer will come to you.
Do not keep reinforcing the negative: I cannot find my (fill in the blank). That self-talk only tells your mind NOT to see or find what you’re looking for!
I know in my heart that the most profound answers to my problems in life have always come from my intuition. My inner guidance has always led me to the right resources, or the right people who could give me the answers. Give yourself permission to let go of fears and connect to the inner part of yourself. Utilize the part that has more wisdom and knowledge than you. You will see new results in your life. When you take the time to listen to your inner wisdom, you will feel more peace of mind, more confidence, and you will have a sense of knowing you have what it takes. Know that you will make good decisions and move in the right directions to live a successful life.
I would like to remind you that by asking your extrasensory perception to give you answers, you will find that the answers will come faster and become clearer with practice. One of the most important things you can do to access your intuition is to ask yourself empowering questions!
Blessings to you
My blog has been focused on using our Intuition because it is one of the hidden powers of our lives. However, most people have forgotten to use their instinct muscles to protect themselves from the illusions in our world, con artists, and people who are morally bankrupt. I personally trust my gut feelings more and more because my intuition serves me to stay safe and discern who and what to believe in our current world. So many people today have been taken advantage of because they believed others who took advantage of them. The truth is, many of our present economic woes are the result of people are out of touch with their instincts.
Since we aren’t given information about listening to our intuition in our school systems, I wanted to share with you some of the practical information I have gathered throughout my career about getting in touch with your inner wisdom—your true source of strength and infallible guidance. The follow is a small excerpt from my program, Intuition: The New Common Sense. You can find out more by clicking here. Intuition sounds almost mystical, but it’s actually just the mind’s ability to match patterns. You “get a feeling” about a new situation because it is subconsciously similar to an experience you have had before. That is how intuition tells us that an attractive business offer has hidden dangers or an associate doesn’t have our best interests at heart.
Imagine this: You are sharing logical and intellectual reasons why your prospect, client, customer, or patient should invest in your product or service or you are asking for a raise or added benefit from your boss. But deep down, hidden away, you are feeling unsure of yourself. You have fears that your supplier cannot deliver on time or you don’t feel worthy of a large commission, or maybe you dislike your prospect. Maybe you fear your supplier will let you down or your staff cannot handle the extra work. Something inside of you is insecure. Or if it is your boss, maybe you feel like they won’t give you what you want. Whether your feelings are positive or negative, they are energy that is being transmitted by you to your prospect or boss. They start to pick up subtle energy patterns or thoughts, intellectually or subliminally, and can feel your doubts. This is an important point you should be very aware of. It’s important to clean up your thoughts, doubts, and negative energy before you make presentations of any kind. Maybe your staff or sales people are having these feelings. If they are, I assure you these negative feelings are affecting your sales, profits, and results.
Pay attention to your self-talk because we are self-fulfilling prophecies. If you tell yourself regularly that your problems are too difficult for you or you will never find the answers, then you do not trust yourself, and again, you’re programming your intuition to fail you. Have you ever had a feeling that you should call on a particular client? Then, after you ignored your inner nudging, later found out that, had you just called on that client, you would have made the sale? How many times have you had a feeling that it was going to be a waste of time to call on a certain client, but you made the call anyway and the client was not even in the building? In today’s world you must develop and use these natural abilities–your intuition–to be successful in whatever you do, from your personal life to business.
If I don’t use intuition in my decision-making process I tend to fall short of my goals and not make the best decisions. The bottom line is that adding intuition to your life and listening to your inner wisdom is what adds STRENGTH to your life and decisions. Listening to your intuition will allow you to see opportunities that others cannot. Learning to use your intuition on a practical level will allow you to escape traditional boundaries and focus on expansion and freedom in your life.

Hi from Lee! One of my favorite books is Richard Bach’s Jonathan Livingston Seagull. This book would have never been the success it is today if Eleanor Friede, an independent book producer, had not listened to her intuition and taken action. She made the rounds to over two dozen publishing houses, none of which took interest in a children’s book called Jonathan Livingston Seagull. Ms. Friede’s associates called it a “nothing book.” One Sunday morning she was sitting on the deck of her beach house and suddenly sensed that Jonathan Livingston Seagull was a story for adults, not children! She then realized her marketing strategy had been all wrong; it was an uphill battle, but she finally got it published with a very small printing. The publishers didn’t want to do a second printing, even though it sold out its first release in just a few months. And even though the book received no national attention, she believed unfailingly in its message. She pushed hard for the second printing because she felt this book would become a best seller — and she was right. The book has sold over 11 million copies in twenty-seven languages.
Ours is a world where science has succeeded in explaining most observable phenomena, which makes it hard for many to accept anything that is unexplained as being real. Many times you can personally experience some instance of mental telepathy and still consider it just a coincidence. Physicists and psychologists say there is evidence of an energy link between everything in the universe. Everything that happens is simultaneously encoded in this energy pattern, which makes telepathy and clairvoyance more plausible, and certainly gives us a deeper understanding on how intuition works. This would explain why animals run away when anticipating an earthquake. British biologist Rupert Sheldrake has submitted a very provocative hypothesis that whenever a member of a species learns something new, the “causative field” or behavioral blueprint is altered. If the new behavior is repeated enough, a “morphic resonance” is established that will affect every member of the species.
According to Roy Rowan, in his book The Intuitive Manager, “New ideas spring from a mind that organizes experiences, facts, and relationships to discern a path that has not been taken before. Somewhere along this uncharted path, intuition compresses years of learning and experience into an instantaneous flash.”
Author Michael Hutchison writes, “In recent years many have recognized the dangers of left-hemisphere dominance and have undertaken various ways to emphasize the right-brain functions. Meditation, yoga, chanting, dancing, running, guided dreaming, visualization, self-hypnosis, and many other techniques have been used to open up the right hemisphere.”
Keep in mind folks, you cannot fool yourself. You know how you feel right now about your own inner wisdom called intuition. Sadly, if you don’t trust it, you are going to need to take small steps, one at a time, in order to rebuild your confidence in your own inner wisdom. Without these steps, you won’t be able to bring valuable and dependable information to yourself. There are certain activities or surroundings that can be very conducive to intuition.
You’ll need to experiment and find out what works best for you. The most important step is for the mind to be receptive to different ideas and to have faith in your own abilities.

Now more than ever when you deal with people, you must learn to use your instincts and tune in to feel the true nature of the other person’s intent. When you use your intuition correctly you will be able to read the unsavory energies of morally bankrupt people’s lies and deceptions, and avoid a great deal of heartache in the future. Pay attention and listen to these people with your intuition and not just analyze what they say and do. Remember, as I shared in last week’s newsletter, you should be pausing before making a decision to check out your Head, Heart, and Gut.
Famous people, like Isaac Newton and Einstein, felt that using their sixth sense helped them find solutions to problems that they could not find in a normal state of mind. Most millionaires and highly successful people have repeatedly shared how they use their intuition to determine what choices to make.
We have been programmed to be so logical and analytical in our thinking that we forget our intuitive abilities. We must go back and rely on the old inner knowing of the tribal people of our history. The knowledge is not lost but it certainly has been put on a back burner and not valued as it should be. It’s time to take back our power and learn to discern between truth and lies.
Almost everyone has had some kind of sixth-sense experience. Have you ever thought of someone’s name in your head and suddenly that person called you? We all have built in abilities to know things that are not always logical. We can know if deals or decisions will work out well for us if we take the time to stop and feel BEFORE we take action.
If you want to develop these talents, you have to let go of your ego for a while and be open-minded to try new ways of thinking and feeling. Not listening to our gut has left us in a mess, often times trusting people who have not deserved our trust and who have had their own personal agendas.
Psychologist Carl Jung said we are all linked through what he called the collective unconscious. Everything is energy. The marketplace of business, relationships, money, products, your actions, creativity, music, art; everything is energy. You can pick up information about that energy via your subtle senses and by paying attention to it.
Kick Start Your INTUITION: You don’t have to be sitting in your office to come up with creative and intuitive solutions! First, outline exactly what solution you need. For example: You have interviewed several new possible candidates for an assistant position. It appears that they are all equally qualified according to their resumes. They all passed your internal office tests and you liked them all equally. So you are stumped as to which one to hire. Who fits in the office the best? Who will be your best choice?
POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS: Before you make your decision, allow your mind to play with each possible choice. When you envision your office in a month, does any one of the choices pop into your mind? Can you SEE that person in your office? If so, do you FEEL satisfied? Do you feel frustrated when you SEE THEM? Ask your intuition to give you a CLEAR SIGN or IMPRESSION ON WHO TO HIRE. (Always remember that your intuition wants you to ASK for help). Then simply let it go. Allow yourself to go about your life. Usually, when you aren’t expecting inspiration, you’ll get the solution to your problem. The more you agonize over the problem, the less likely you will be to allow your gut feelings to give you solutions.
Many people tell me they get “answers” to their challenges in unexpected places and suddenly know the correct actions to take. The truth is, we tend to make decision-making harder and more complicated than necessary. When you factor in your ability to use your intuition, decision-making becomes easier.
Blessings to you
