"There's never been a book like The Intuitive Way! Comprehensive, easy, and entertaining, [Peirce's] no-nonsense approach inspires and instructs as no previous book on intuitive development has ever done. Bravo!" -- Hal Zina Bennett, PhD, author of Write from the Heart and The Lens of Perception
"The Intuitive Way fills a crucial gap in the training of most business people. What Steven Covey did for principle-centered behavior, Penney Peirce does for intuition. Here is a practical guide for using the power and clarity of intuition in the overly analytical workplace." -- William Bardallis, Management Consultant, Deloitte & Touche, Denver, CO

Part 1, entitled "Creating a Clear Lens," walks the reader through a series of exercises to clean out habits of thought, fears, and unhelpful beliefs which most of us carry around until we do our interior housekeeping. Many exercises resemble the work that so many people do in therapy, that is, uncovering painful issues from the past and clearing them out. This clearing opens up the channel from the "Big Mind," that is, the intuitive mind, so that we can receive guidance.
In Part 2, "Accessing Subtle Information," the focus turns to specific exercises for developing more sensitive perception and awareness. You will find here an emphasis on using your body awareness to tap into your intuitive mind. This makes perfect sense, as being grounded in the physical realm gives us a stable base from which to extend outward into the unknown.
Finally, in Part 3, "Making Intuition Useful," Ms. Peirce leads us through exercises on applying intuition to everyday life. She includes very good information on dream work, working with the creative process, self-healing, and accessing super-conscious guidance, among other topics.
This is really a lovely book. It is down-to-earth and practical, but also leads the reader gently into the spiritual realm. Ms.Read more ›
She starts by what she calls "The cleaning of the lens of perception" which is about tuning to your own intuition and preparing to open up to it. The second part of the book is devoted to using many tools of intuitive development to recognize and then interpret the messages of intuition. She gives us a good chapter on body-based intuition. The last part of the book focuses on day-to-day messages of intuition such as dreams and how to regularly follow your insights.
Good reads going with this most hands-on guide would be Julia Cameron's books, Natalie Goldberg's books and Ray Bradbury's "The Zen of Writing" (for those into writing) and Hal Zina Bennett's.
1) The benefits of active intuition (on page xxiii): Vital information is giving on some of the benefits of an active intuition such as exciting ones such as your creativity and imagination are going to increase. She also mentions how intuition helps with experiencing more grace, synchronicity, miracles, and good luck. I am told frequently in my life how lucky I am, and reading about the link between intuition and good luck in the book was a healing discovery. I say this because it made me even more aware of the mechanics behind how intuition and good luck is available to people from all walks of life.
2) Keep a Journal (page xxxiv): Exciting details are given on why it is good to keep an intuition diary, and suggestions on how to begin such an exploratory diary.
3) How Intuition Comes In (page 12): There are very vivid details given on the channels that your personal intuition makes its way to you. The exercise that goes along with it makes me think in a more expansive way on how I receive my messages, and helps me understand why I love music.
4) How Information Emerges (page 113): There is information listed on how information is processed through your brain, and ways to maximize this advantage when increasing intuition.
5) Harnessing Dreams and Imagination (pg. 123): Penney gives compelling reasons on why it is important to trust the power of your imagination. I like the story that she used to illustrate this with the musical dreams that one of her clients had.Read more ›
