Editorial Reviews Review

Laura Day, who has been "intuitive"--her word for "psychic"--since youth, here asserts that you, too, can milk your sixth sense for all it's worth. While Day's gift comes naturally to her, she contends that anyone can improve his or her natural intuitive instincts. While you may not win the lottery on your next try, this book may very well help you think more deeply and more clearly, helping you to function at a higher level than before. (Finding your car keys, for example, may not be a half-hour long process anymore.) Your attitude will undoubtedly have a great effect on your degree of success with her program. (If this helps at all, try to remember that Brad Pitt is a devout Day supporter, and James D. Watson, Nobel laureate and co-discoverer of the DNA helix, has endorsed Day's intuitions.) At any rate, the book is filled with plenty of brain-stretching exercises, and who can't use some of those?

From Library Journal

Day, a psychic who prefers to be called an intuitor, claims to have been able to predict the future for most of her life. She now works with clients to help answer questions about their business and personal lives. She also teaches classes to help others use their intuition to advantage. In this book, Day uses anecdotes to illustrate the validity of her own and her students' intuition, and she offers exercises to the reader for learning how to use their intuition. Readers open to the idea of "psychic" abilities will enjoy exploring and enhancing their own intuitive skills. This book is well structured and easy to follow. Nonbelievers will probably not be convinced by Day, but then they probably won't be reading this book anyway. Recommended.?Elizabeth Caulfield Felt, Washington State Univ. Lib., Pullman

Format: Paperback
This book is my foundation work on intuition. It has rewarded my investment more than a thousand times over in money alone, and the insight and practical advice I have received through these intuitive exercises in other areas of my life have been worth as much again. This book differs markedly from many other books about intuition by simplifying and demystifying the whole subject. While so many other books will have you carrying out lengthy efforts of "tuning in" and receiving impressions to no particular purpose, this book gets you started right away dealing with issues of practical importance in your own life. After a couple of short introductory chapters, explaining how it works and what you will need, the exercises begin almost immediately. As the book progresses, you will formulate three burning questions of your own and carry out a series of exercises to refine and provide insight into them. The book contains 26 such exercises in all, every one different, and all carried out "blind", that is to say without knowing which question you are answering. Some of the author's own questions are thrown in, so you really never can guess the question you are dealing with. This is not the kind of book you can simply dip into or read for interest alone. You are forced to carry out the exercises as you reach each one before moving on in the text. This may be off-putting to some, but following the rules will reward you with much practical experience by the end of the book, and most likely some genuinely useful answers to a few of your own questions. Added to this, the book is full of examples from the author's students, so you get plenty of insight and encouragement from the efforts of other novices. If you are serious about putting intuition to practical use in your life, then this is the book to get. In fact, it may be the only book you will ever need on the subject.

Format: Paperback
Laura Day's book, PRACTICAL INTUITION, describes ways that we can develop our psychic senses and connect more clearly with the truths that are out there -- such as what job is best, what partner is best, what to do to improve one's health, and how to make better investment and business decisions. Most of us suffer from occasional lapses in what we call "reason" or "judgement", in which we ignore deeper knowledge of who we are and what we need. This knowledge is fully accessible to each and every one of us, according to Day, who provides fun and informative exercises designed to build up our intuitive talent.
PRACTICAL INTUITION sets itself apart from other intuition books by starting with the working assumption that we all have access to universal truths and can see the future, feel how others are feeling, and generally live our lives in mystical fashion. I love this approach to the subject of intuition, because I share these beliefs and enjoy experiencing the magic in life.
I love the section Day includes in this book which shows you how you can quickly help almost anyone become your own psychic guru (even when they don't think they are psychic at all) -- for those times when you need an unbiased opinion, and don't want to hire a psychic. This is a very creative technique that you're sure to have lots of fun with as you get the answers you need to those burning questions.
Would you like to find out how intuitive you can really be? Are you open to the possibility that you already know exactly who you are and what is best for you? PRACTICAL INTUITION picks up where other intuition books leave off, and can raise your intuitive ability to heights you never knew you could reach.

My third eye, that is. I "accidentally" purchased this book and did the exercises exactly as she instructed. I was struck by the accuracy of my visions. Laura's book is a great teaching tool to expand your intuition. BUT it takes discipline. Practical Intuition is dynamite when you're willing to devote the time. It took me 5 weeks. I use it to evaluate the men I date -- with telling accuracy.

Finally, finally, I found the book that helped me give structure to my readings. Since I was seventeen (I am twenty-three as I write this review) I've been using my intuitive abilities to read people, but I've always wanted to give more order to the information I was getting since it somehow came across as scattered. At long last the RIGHT book to help me do just that has come my way!
Thank you, thank you, Laura Day! PRACTICAL INTUITION is a life-changing book!

Format: Paperback
This book made a big difference in my life. I am a man whose mind was trained in logic but recently I found it harder and harder to make decisions, big or small. The exercises in Practical Intuition helped me access information in a creative, imaginative way -- they unblocked me and decision-making became easier and faster. I still use logic. I still analyze data. But now I trust my instincts much more and find that my hunches are usually right on the money. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for new ways of thinking and seeing the world.

Format: Paperback
I wanted to like this book, I really did, but I felt that the exercises were presented strangely, the book organized poorly, and the flow of the book stagnant. I believe Laura Day has intuit abilities and it's disappointing that someone so in touch with her sixth sense, and therefore somewhat tapped into the mystery of the unseen world around us, couldn't access a more convincing and fluid way to get her points across.

I gained some insights from the book. For example, I liked the explanation of how children shouldn't be stifled when they see a monster in their bedroom because this is a symbol that means something. We, as conditioned adults, have learned to tune out and discount this symbol as child's play, as well as most other symbols -- and we shouldn't! There are other sprinklings of knowledge that I found interesting.

Maybe I wrote my questions (which are the basis of the rest of the exercises in the book) poorly to start off, but I didn't think the "how to write a proper question" section was explained well. Perhaps if I wrote better intro questions I'd have gotten more from the book. That doesn't take away from my feeling that the book was off in some way.
