Amazon.com Review

Awakening Intuition explores the idea that learning to use intuition and understanding its connection with memories, dreams, and healing can strengthen your body against disease and enrich your life. Using case studies, author Mona Lisa Shultz portrays her belief that emotions and diseases are linked, what areas of the body are affected by what kinds of feelings, and how we can tune in to the cause of an ailment. Indeed, Schultz describes curing herself of a brain disorder using intuition, and claims she keeps her Graves' disease in remission solely through this work.

Schultz's basic treatise is that the body is continuously sending us messages through symptoms and symbols to get our attention. By heeding these messages and using intuition to decode them, we can make changes that enhance our health and emotional well-being.

Schultz is a physician, neuropsychiatrist, and neuroscientist who has worked as a "medical intuitive" for more than a decade. Far from claiming extraordinary powers, Schultz believes we are all intuitive and can train ourselves to tap into our resources. "It's a real down-to-earth capacity that is available to anyone willing to tune in his transmitter and listen in to what's being broadcast," writes Schultz. "The information it offers us is practical, and it can immeasurably improve and enrich our lives." --Joan Price --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Booklist

Schulz has an M.D., a Ph.D., and a positive outlook. As a child, she learned that showing how brainy she was was more acceptable than showing her intuitive power. Yet she gradually allowed intuition to become a major component of her medical practice, and this book reporting many cases of "medical readings" explains why and some of how she does this. Intuition is not rare. With practice, which Schulz describes, each of us can use it to improve life and relationships. Schulz draws on the body's emotional centers and the body's memories to assist her work, to which she brings acute observation, remarkable experience and memory, and deep empathy. Her novel attitude is shown by her speaking of a gardener as seeing that the weeds are too big rather than that the flowers need to grow bigger. She occasionally skates near the edge of credibility, though, as when she states that personality traits can cause parkinsonism. Basically, she encourages giving emotions full expression and living life positively. William Beatty --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Dr Mona Lisa Schulz is one of those rare people who can cross the borders of science, medicine and mysticism.

During a medical intuitive consultation, there is no physician/patient relationship, nor is any psychotherapy being performed. Mona Lisa will educate you in how specific emotional situations in your life are associated with the increased risk of illness in a specific organ in your body.

Format: Paperback
While I was encouraged by the convincing introduction, which describes what intuition is, how intuition is already speaking to us and how by listening to it we can live a fuller and healhtier life, I find the author does not fulfil the promise of her introduction or the book title on how to accomplish this.
The book basically lays out in loose terms how our body speaks to us through illness if we ignore or fail to resolve the issues that cause emotional stress in our lives. She divides the body into seven emotional centers and their accompanying organs, and lays out what kind of emotional issues are connected to each center. She thus exposes the mind-body health relationship by linking emotional issues to the body areas they affect. She proceeds to give examples of what kind of diseases can arise if one of these emotional centers is out of balance (usually power vs. vulnerability balance). She draws on her experiences as a medical intuitive to demonstrate these mind-body links, either by using readings of her patients or by using her own personal life stories.
While her readings and experiences are interesting and even fascinating, there is a lack of thoroughness in linking diseases and emotional issues that makes it unqualified as a real guide for people who want to find out what emotional issue is at the core of their illness. The book is even more lacking in giving people practical advice or guidance on how to deal with their emotional issues if they do find out what they are. As far as actually awakening, developing and exploring your intuition, this topic is not addressed until the very end of the book in a few short pages.
I find too much of the book is not really useful to other than perhaps people totally new to the concept of intuition and the mind-body health link.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I ordered this along with other Mona Lisa Schulz products through Amazon. I was enthusiastic about the prospect, mostly because of Christianne Northrup's friendship and endorsement of Mona Lisa. Regrettably, I ordered the products before having a personal phone consult with Mona Lisa. If the phone consult had happened first, I would not have ordered anything. I very much regret the product orders and the consult.

I am a very chronically patient and have been very sick and bedridden for a number of years. My experience was that Mona Lisa was one of the most incompassionate practitioners I personally have encountered. I was prepared for directness. However, I was not prepared for extreme callous rudeness in the process. I am still stunned and devastated ....and out $450 for the consult. When you first call to try to find out how much is the consult price they won't tell you. That sould be the first clue. You must leave your phone number where she insists on calling you back personally where she rapidfires a prepared sales list of "all of the comprehensive services" you will receive. It felt a bit "car salesman" strategy which should have been my next intuitive sign that something didn't feel right about the process. My intuition was telling me NO...but I am so sick I proceeded against my own instincts. Something I now regret.

Prior to the cost inquiry for the consult I had already ordered some of her products... including her oracle cards, Awakening Intuition book, and the multi-cassette series Body Talk with Christianne Northrup MD. The phone consult process was so disappointing that I can not in good faith recommend any of.

Format: Hardcover
This book pulls uneasily in two directions. For me, the most helpful parts concerned learning to identify the psychological/spiritual problems that foster physical illnesses. Much of what Schulz said on that topic chimed in with my own experiences: for instance, I come from a family whose habit is to suppress negative emotions and express positive ones only in extremely restrained ways; is it any wonder we've all got high blood pressure? Her approach to the meaning of illness is far less simplistic than Louise Hay's (whose list of what illnesses signify reminds me of those booklets you see at the supermarket check-out counter: "If you dream of a black dog, this means ... "). Although Schulz leans heavily to the mental side of the mind-body relationship, she generally manages to avoid what Joan Borysenko labels "New Age guilt," i.e., "illness means that you're not spiritually advanced enough." And although she occasionally sounds as if she's promoting the view that illness is ONLY a mental problem, in general I felt her insights were sound and useful.
Less helpful, to me, were the parts on intuition: although I agree with her that everyone has it and simply needs to become more sensitive to it, the book didn't teach me a whole lot about how to enhance this faculty in myself. And while her personal history is fascinating and (generally) relevant to her main point, I found her endless examples of medical intuition in action rather tedious: the cases themselves are often extremely relevant, but she could have left out a lot of the "look how insightful I am" parts! Again, the book is messy and sprawling -- in many sections, I felt that a more ruthless editor could have allowed her to make her point while eliminating the irrelevant material. I feel the book is worth reading, but it could have been at least 1/3 shorter and just as informational -- and probably a lot easier to read!
