Develop Your Intuition
Powered by Intuition is offering subscribers a new free Intuition Development Masterclass:
The 6 Keys to Absolute Intuition You Can Trust to Confidently Make the Right Decision Every Time (Even If You Never Trusted Your Intuition Before).
This free training webinar explains how to get precise feedback from your intuition rather than vague feelings and hunches.
The biggest problem with intuition development today is that the prevailing consensus of relying upon feelings for intuitive feedback actually prevents students from getting concrete answers from their intuition. The results of relying on feelings leave people uncertain about what to do. This leads to the need to ask friends and family for their opinion and more confusion. The fact is that feelings are unreliable and change constantly.
There is a better more reliable way to get clear detailed guidance from intuition that is not reliant upon feelings. This is the subject of the Masterclass.
The master class shows intuition development students:
- A 6 step strategy to shatter all the myths about intuition development that result in vague intuitive feelings and hunches and leave you completely uncertain.
- How to generate creative ideas and brilliant solutions to problems like a genius.
- How to stop stumbling in the dark guessing at what your intuition is trying to tell you.
- The “secret sauce” of truly accurate intuition and how you can use this to gain an advantage and skyrocket your intuitive success virtually over night.
- How to quit spinning your wheels and get on the right path that leads you directly to the life, happiness and success you dream of…without meditating for hours, spending years developing your intuition or giving 100s of ‘practice readings.
- A four-step formula to take the guess work out of intuition so you can stop seeking advice from everyone and feel confident in your abilities right away, that’s elegant, simple and results in concrete answers you trust.
- What the intuition community doesn’t want you to know that keeps you stuck on the hamster wheel of “second-guessing yourself” over and over again.
Developing intuition is vital to maximize potential
The concrete process discussed in the Masterclass works for any decision but it’s particularly well suited to major life decisions such as:
• finding your purpose
• determining the right path in life
• making the right career moves
• choosing the right life partner
• sizing up and healing relationships
• making a home purchase or moving to the right place
• choosing the right investments
• answering business questions and solving business problems
You can make the best personal decisions in less time without agonizing over them again and again. How much time, spiritual energy, and peace could you reclaim by learning to do this? How much more could you achieve in your life if you were to put an end to the fear that keeps you tethered to your comfort zone?
If you’re ready to finally stop the endless vacillating, calling friends for their opinions, and the nail-biting worry when making important decisions for your life this free masterclass is a must.

Trying to grow your list?
I have a great tip on how to grow your list easily with qualified leads using quizzes. I created a quiz using the InterAct Quiz application. Interact makes it simple to create a quiz with their preset templates. All you need to do is formulate your questions and then choose the images to go along with them. It’s fast, easy and fun too!
And people love quizzes. Have you noticed all the quizzes on Facebook? Advertisers of all kinds from internet marketers, gurus like Tony Robbins and bloggers are using quizzes to attract qualified leads to grow their lists.
When people see a catchy headline on a quiz that promises to teach them something about themselves they simply cannot resist taking it, especially if it’s free. Think of how many times you’ve purchased a magazine at the grocery check-out just because there was an intriguing quiz on the cover.
The quiz I created using InterAct’s easy quiz template is: How Much Do You Really Trust Your Intuition. You can check it out here. It’s been performing well to bring in new subscribers with very little effort on my part. I created it just over three weeks ago and the organic traffic coming to my site from it is steadily increasing. In fact, 100 new subscribers have opted in to my list just from my sharing the quiz on Twitter and Facebook. That may not sound like a lot of people but that’s without doing any paid advertising!
My next step will be to share the quiz in a promoted post on FB and Twitter. Judging by how well the quiz is performing without spending a cent I’m excited about the prospects of how well it will do with advertising to bring in new subscribers.
If you’re trying to find a way to attract qualified leads to grow your list don’t hesitate to try InterAct Quizzes! Check them out here.

Do you struggle when it comes to making hard decisions in your life?
Bill Gates once said, “Often you must rely on intuition.” I can understand why Gates said this. If you’re trying to make a hard decision too much information can paralyze your ability to make it. When there’s a mountain of never-ending data pouring in that can change quickly using your intuition to make the final call makes perfect sense. At some point you have to decide “to decide” and stop asking for more and more information, stop analyzing and stop reviewing the bottom line. You’ve got to pull the trigger and say, “Go!” And that’s exactly what a good decision-maker will do.
The elegance of intuition
Intuition is like a shortcut through the mountain so you don’t have to go all the way around it. And this is the elegance of intuition. By definition it’s defined as a grasping of the whole at once. When you have reached the point where more data and analysis confuses you that is the time to tap into your intuition and let it “sift” through all that data and spit out the answer. Often you already “know” what the right thing to do is but you ignore it and keep looking for more validation via information instead.
Becoming a great decision maker
A great decision maker will use reason and logic to consider all the information plus their sense of “inner knowing.” When their “inner knowing” concurs the decision will be made. An insecure decision maker will keep asking for more information because they never get that concurring sense of “inner knowing” or if they do, they don’t trust it. Their drive for more information and certainty will cause them to put off the decision and miss opportunities.
Greatness is having that inner knowing, trusting it, making a decision based upon it and then taking action on it without hesitating. This doesn’t mean that a great decision maker will never fail at one time or another but in general making decisions and taking action more often ensures you will make greater strides in your life toward achieving your goals. The ability to make decisions despite uncertainty is what separates the good from the great.
Stop chasing certainty
Nothing in life is 100 percent certain. Life is risky and anything can go wrong. The more comfortable you become with taking risks despite the uncertainty you feel the greater strides you’ll make and the more successful you’ll be. And the more you learn to tap into your intuition the better decision maker you’ll become.
“Intuition becomes increasingly valuable in the new information society precisely because there is so much data.” —John Naisbitt
Intuition is a sense that’s available to us, in addition to the five physical senses we normally use to navigate our lives. We can pump-up our intuition and learn to rely on it more if we choose to. We can listen to our heart, follow our excitement, heed our gut and be pulled by our passion. It just takes an intention to do so, focus and consistent practice; consistent practice being the key point. You can’t try to tune into your intuition one time and think, “It didn’t work for me,” just like you can’t lift a weight once at the gym and say that didn’t work to make you a buff god or goddess either.
The pesky little problem with intuition and decision making…
That said, there’s a problem I see with attuning to your intuition. The problem is that intuition is based on “feelings and trust.” Intuition calls for tuning into feelings of “inner knowing,” or “certainty.” Most people are so distracted that they have difficulty tuning into their “feelings” let alone trusting them! This is a definite problem when it comes to intuitive decision making.
And I know this because the top question I’ve received from readers over the seven years since I started Powered by Intuition has been, “How can I trust my intuition and know it’s not just wishful thinking?” Sometimes it’s pretty tricky to know the difference and you will make a wrong decision because of it. If you can discipline yourself to “go within” on a daily basis you can overcome the distractions and tune into your feelings more directly but the problem of feeling uncertain and not feeling confident enough to trust your intuition may still derail you. And then, there’s the lingering problem of attachment to the outcome. Many times the inaccuracy with your intuition comes from your attachment to the outcome. When you’re fixated on a particular outcome you can easily be misled.
Detachment is key
Intuition is much more accurate when you’re detached from the results. But that leads us to the next problem which is how to be detached from the results of your decisions? It’s much easier said than done especially when there’s a lot riding on the decision. If your decision is a life or death decision or can bankrupt you if you choose incorrectly you’re going to have a difficult time staying detached.
How to reconcile the dilemma of intuition and uncertainty in decision-making
The way to reconcile this dilemma is to verify your intuitive feelings, instincts and hunches with a process that ensures detachment from the outcome and validates the correct decision.
3 Step Verification Process to be certain your decisions are correct:
- Research the data about the problem you want to solve and review it. Do the research and analyze it and come to a decision. If you’re having trouble feeling certain about your decision choose the best logical option and move forward. The longer you delay making a decision the more chance you have of being “late to the party” and missing the window of opportunity. You’ve got to build your decision making muscle!
- Formulate your conclusion. Next, hand it off to your intuition to see if you get the “go” signal. You may feel the matter is “settled” or a have a calm certainty about it. If you still feel unsure and have the urge to ask other people for their opinion or constantly change your mind and vacillate between one decision or another the next step is a must for you.
- The last step is to use an intuitive verification process. The entire problem of not feeling sure of your intuitive feelings or whether you’re making the decision based on wishful thinking can be overcome with this process because the process itself ensures objectivity and detachment.
What is Intuitive Verification™?
Intuitive Verification™ is a process using the language of archetypes and symbolism to verify or disqualify the decision you’ve chosen before taking action upon it.
There is no better way to feel certain about a decision than to use the intuitive verification process because “seeing is believing.” This process works for any decision but it’s particularly well suited to major life decisions where there is a lot at stake. It’s best used for thoughtful decisions that are being made for the long term so, for this reason it’s a natural fit for entrepreneurs, business-owners and executives who need answers.
I’ve been using this process and it works extremely well to give you concrete answers that you can rely upon without second guessing yourself. With the practice of Intuitive Verification™ you’ll become more intuitive and a better decision-maker and it will also enhance your creativity and problem-solving skills.

The new year has arrived with all the promise of a new day. This is your chance to start over and avoid the pitfalls that thwarted you last year because now you’ve learned from your mistakes. Congratulations.
Greater success with greater ease is what you want, right? When you set goals, especially in the beginning of the new year you want feel confident that you’ll achieve them. And, you want to arrive at your goal without hitting a lot of roadblocks that might cause you to have to undo or redo much of the work you’ve put in as well.
Imagine how much easier the previous year would have been if you could have avoided those costly mistakes that set you back in the first place. That’s even better. And imagine that there is a way to do this and it is something right at your fingertips that can learn to do.
How to avoid costly mistakes in the first place
Avoiding costly mistakes is achievable. And it’s something that some of the most successful people of our time, such as Albert Einstein and Bill Gates have been able to do naturally. It involves applying your intuition to finding the right solutions and making the correct choices in the first place, and course correcting as you go to be sure you stay on the right track.
Intuition is knowledge that comes to you all at once, is complete and doesn’t require ‘reasoning’ to arrive at. Reasoning is where you have a sequence of linear thoughts (one thought leads to the next and then the next) about a problem in order to arrive at a conclusive solution. Intuitive knowledge is receiving the “solution” all at once, minus the process of reasoning to get there.
Intuition is the Elegant Solution
Intuition is a shortcut that accelerates your success and helps you avoid costly mistakes. It’s the elegant way of gaining an “unfair advantage” to achieving your goals with more joy and less struggle. Although, there’s really nothing unfair about it since intuition is accessible to everyone. It’s just that many people distrust their intuition and talk themselves out of their “hunches” before giving them a chance.
Pledge to start relying on your intuition in the new year
Decide today that you will consult your intuition before making a decision instead of ignoring it and then possibly regretting your decision later. This is what the most successful people do. They check in with their gut before making a move and if something feels out of sorts they don’t move forward with that choice. I’m sure you can recall an instance where you disregarded that “little voice” and then later when things didn’t turn out well you said, “I knew I should have listened to my intuition!”
Now that you know better vow to do better and listen to your intuition in the new year. Use these three simple steps to accelerate your success with ease!
3 Steps to Accelerate Your Success With Intuition:
- Set your intention. Decide that you will check in with your intuition before making any big decisions regarding achieving your goals.
- Journal. Use a journal to document the decisions you’re grappling with and the answers that come to you intuitively. Leave some space to come back and add additional information.
- Record the outcome. As each of your decisions unfolds be sure to go back and write down exactly how things turned out.
When you do this you will be creating a powerful new habit of using your intuition and enhancing your intuition so that you become even more accurate with it. Best wishes for your continued success in the new year!

“How do I know if I’m using real power or force? I read your articles about how to raise your vibration and I want to raise mine but sometimes I’m not sure if really wanting something and pushing for it is okay or not? Is that force?”
This question comes from, S.J. a Powered by Intuition community member in Oregon. (Subscribe to submit your question).
This is a really great question S.J., thanks for submitting it.
Power vs. Force
The easiest way to know the difference between real power and force is to look at your life and notice where you’re frustrated. Wherever you experience frustration is where you’re likely to try to “force things.”
When we’re frustrated it’s normally due to our expectations not being met. We expect something to take place in the way we’ve imagined it would and when it doesn’t we feel frustrated. Frustration usually results in us trying to “make it happen” anyway. In some cases frustration results in violence. That’s a very obvious sign of using force.
If the frustration is due to something within your control then by all means try to correct the situation; that’s not “pushing” its persevering. If it’s out of your control you need to “let go” and let things work themselves out. If you keep trying to “push” and make it happen despite it being out of your control then you’re using “force.”
Real or “true” power never stems from forcing others to do things. Actually, its quite the opposite. When you’re using true power you are empowered with a magnetic presence that pulls people toward you because you’re aligned with the highest good of all concerned. “True power” is an innate quality to the most charismatic and successful people. Just think of how we gravitate toward babies, puppies and kittens. In their innocence they exude the power of pure goodness and we are irresistibly drawn toward them because of it.
When we use force things don’t flow and have a way of backfiring on us later. When we are using “true power” we will attract people, situations, solutions and support as needed to accomplish our goals. Using true power puts us in the “flow” of life rather than in opposition to it.
Any time we are in opposition to something we create a “see-saw” effect because it pits us against something. For example, for one person to be “right” another person has to be “wrong.” So we are always on the see-saw, either up or down but in any case, going nowhere and stuck in this counterproductive repetitious pattern.
Deal with Challenges
This is not say that you will never have challenges when you are using true power. Nor does it mean you sit back and do nothing. You must still take action even when you face challenges but make sure it’s the right kind of action.
You will know what the right action is when you’re using true power because you won’t be stuck on only one solution. You will be able to disengage from the narrow viewpoint of what is frustrating you and let go. This stepping back and releasing the fixation on what’s not working allows for other solutions to come to you via your intuition. And, when you allow this to happen you are using “true power” and the solution is “intuitively inspired.”
This happens because true power comes from higher intelligence, or what some people call “Source,” life energy or God. When we insist on using sheer force we are relying on our “small selves” and the limited information stored in the brain. Force cuts us off from the elegant solutions that Source can provide us.
Listen to Your Intuition
We are always connected to this source of higher intelligence but in our frustration we feel cut off and separate. When we allow ourselves to step back from the problem and open up to this source of higher intelligence we will receive answers via our intuition that are far better than anything we were stubbornly fixated on before. This is because we are receiving answers from the intelligence that created us and everything in the universe.
Our limited brain is no match for higher intelligence. We are using true power when we are in alignment with higher intelligence and do what is good for all concerned. To do this we need to step back from insisting that things be one way, or our way and reset our attitude in the situation to “neutral.” When we are neutral the answers will come to us via our intuition. To know if you are using true power check if you feel calm, secure in the belief that the right answers will appear and that everything is working out for your highest good.
Get in The Flow
When we are aligned with true power we don’t feel compelled to force people to do things or to make things happen. We take action and move toward our goal and receive answers and intuitive guidance along the way so that we can make course corrections if necessary. Then we are in flow and using true power.
