Format: Paperback
This is a wonderfully readable book on intuition, and everything about it. Vaughan describes intuition in contexts of everyday life, dreams, creativity, and human interaction. She also touches upon meditation and the paranormal occurences. She is never overbearing in her information or evidence, as she states immediately that intuition--by its very nature--cannot be quantified or studied rationally, because it is the occurence of knowledge without reason.

She goes into some simple exercises to "develop" intuition, but most are simply creative exercises, or variations of simple meditation. Nonetheless, for someone with casual interest in these subjects, this is a great read. But, if you're very studious in topics such as: intuition, meditation, transpersonal experience, spirituality, philosophy, you may be better off getting a more thorough and definitive book.

Having read several books on intuition, I believe that Frances Vaughan's book is the all encompassing guide on intuition. The author describes intuition at all levels of human experience and is the only text that I have come across that is able to truly describe a complex subject in a manner that is relatively easy to understand. I have owned this book for several years and everytime I read it, I gain some additional insight into this important faculty of the mind. I encourage the reader to read the book several times since every additional attempt will enhance their intuitive capability.

This book is required reading for a course I had planned to take. The book fit right in with the subject of study that I am doing at this time. It really helped to advance my understanding of the intuition process and how to enhance my own level of intuition. It was probably my own intuition at work that caused me to purchase the book in the first place. It is a very easy read, clear and understandable. It is comprehensive in its field and generally well written.

By Joyce on June 18, 2014
Format: Paperback
Vaughan emphasizes the need for balance of the rational and intuitive functions. Though written decades ago, this is still a major issue in human life. She notes that meditation is the most powerful means of increasing intuition. She quotes Joseph Goldstein (one of my meditation teachers): ”Intuitions come out of the silent mind; imagination is conceptual. There’s a vast difference. That’s why the development of insight does not come from thinking about things, it comes from the development of a silence of mind in which a clear vision, a clear seeing, can happen.”
Vaughan notes how philosophers have discussed intuition and then lists four levels of intuitive awareness. 1) The Physical level is a body sense regarding danger or your personal needs. 2) The Emotional level involves a sensitivity to other’s “vibes.” 3) The Mental level often comes in the form of images. Scientists tell of new discoveries coming intuitively. 4) Spiritual intuition is the kind of experience Julian of Norwich describes in her visions of Jesus on the cross. Vaughan quotes Ken Wilbur in saying that if we are to know Reality, we have to move to intuitive knowledge. Her final chapter, The Wisdom of Intuition, moves into the kind of egoless awareness that she suggests as a way of beginning to confront your own death and releases you from the “curse of pathology.”
