"101 Ways to Jump-Start Your Intuition" is a very helpful, soul-nourishing, and informative book to obtain if you are serious about enhancing your intuition, having an intuitive enhancement guide that is easy to travel around with, and many who have a busy schedule.
PHENOMENA....ONLY NATURAL PHENOMENA WE DO NOT UNDERSTAND.
This small, elegant, easily understood and read little book, can open doors to those things considered part of Humankind's "sixth sense"...or intuitive feelings. (You know -- when you "just have a feeling" you should or should not do something, should go, or not go somewhere...or "sense" that a person or place is good, or evil...etc.) Just about every child has this "sixth sense" in greater or lesser degree -- and, sadly, in greater or lesser degree, adults, (or rather, MOST adults), lose this "sixth sense" as they mature.
Losing this natural ability has little or nothing to do with just growing older, however. It is, in a way, a self-preservation measure against the evils one usually meets in the world. For instance, if, when you go to work every day, you always pass a homeless person, you will at first feel great sorrow, and want to help him or her. But then you realize that there are SO many homeless -- indiviudals and families, both -- in the world, that just helping this one person won't really change things that much. And besides, with inflation and your limited salary, you are also constantly wondering, within your frightened subconscious, whether you -- with or without your own family -- might, indeed, somehow wind up like the this proud but pitiful person you must pass every day as you go to your job.
Gradually, you block the feelings, (of sadness, of guilt, and of fear), that you first had when you first saw this person. You do this to stop yourself from additional anguish every time you see her pr him. You NEED the energy the anguish, pain and guilt would otherwise take away. You NEED it to do your own job successfully....and, inevitably, to get to and from work with your sanity intact....
It's normal to do this. Normal and natural. But, along with anything else you may lose by this self-defense mechanism, you are also, most definitely, losing your own "sixth sense". DAUPHNE DU MAURIER, writer of the classic novel, 'REBECCA', and many other well-known books, once stated it this way in an interview in a woman's magazine. She said that men and women are born EQUALLY psychic...but that men usually lose their psychic abilities because they must go out into the world to work -- whilst women usually keep theirs, as they don't go out to work....or didn't, until very recently. FOR THIS REASON, AND THIS REASON ALONE, WAS DAUPHNE DU MAURIER AGAINST WOMEN GOING INTO THE WORK FORCE IF AT ALL POSSIBLE.
But of course, one needs to work. Male or female, one needs money. And, happily, it seems that NOT every person who enters the working world loses their psychic sense. JOHN HOLLAND, an internationally-known and celebrated psychic, is living proof! : ) In this small, easy-to-read book, he shares basic ways to improve -- or get back -- your intuitive sense. (It's almost as if you were a left-handed person, forced in school to learn to write with your right hand....and now is wishing to re-learn what before was so natural....)
In his introduction, Mr. Holland, (on page 2), says.."These 101 lessons are fun, quick, and easy to do. You can read one lesson every day, or simply open the book and know that whatever lesson you choose is the one that was meant just for you....."
Each Lesson is on two facing pages. The first contains, (in BIG print), the lesson number, and the lesson title. In slightly smaller print, below, is a comprehensive statement of a few words, explaining the title, in an affirmation form. The facing page, in slightly smaller, (but still easy-to-read size), print, explores the subject more fully, in two to five well-written statements. Each individual affirmation and following further exploration, is presented on it's own "wallpaper"....images helping the reader to focus on each individual idea, individually. The book pages, (pictures and text), are printed in a light-to-dark lavendar colour, with black, (and or white) printing. The variations in the print colours, (sometimes white printing on darker backgrounds, sometimes dark violet printing on lighter ones), keep the reader focused on the one idea at a time that is presented. The continuity of using white and violet, in different ways, makes the reader aware that all of these indiviudal, and simple, basic, intuitive (!) ideas are, in reality, also connected.
For instance, IDEA 43 is presented thusly:
(Underneath a from-the-bottom-angle of a beautiful, upward-curving flight of stone stairs, surrounded by greenery, seemingly from a planned-to-resemble-the-wilds English garden, is printed in large white letters:
"I KNOW WHAT I WANT AND WHERE I'M GOING....."
On the opposite page, which has on it's right-hand border, a continuation of the picture of the garden, is a darkened "ribboned" area, (to make the lettering stand out), and on the darkened area, is white lettering with the following words:
HOW do you make your goals and
desires come alive? Having
a picture in your mind, (of the
Highest Good), and charging
it with energy can help turn it
into reality. Visualize a goal
in it's final resolution. Now,
Feel what it's like to have
a successful outoome. See it
happening here and now. Nain-
tain and charge this image
as you breathe energy into it.
Feel the excitement, the energy
and the joy. Let it go, trust,
and release it to the universe.
If this doesn't get you on the way to self-visualization, on the way to being more in tune with your feelings....and to realize, consciously, how deeply engrained your feelings really ARE, (whether they are repressessed or expressed, most of the time), perhaps nothing will. Others of the 101 Ways, include: "Strethening Your Intuitive Abilities", "Understanding Others", "Silence", "Using Inner Guidance", "Connecting With Your Feelings", "Gut Feelings", "Trust", "Using Your Creative Side", "Listening With Your Intuition", "Being Responsible", "Moving Forward",t and, (No. 101), "Believing In Yourself".
After the 101 Ways, there is a one-page chart on "The Energy of Colors".
Several good, (but differing), things are said about each color. They include the "Roy G. Biv" colours of the spectrum, which I learnt about in high school science -- Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet", and three more -- White, Brown and Gold. It's fun to check on these...and search out not only your, (and your friends' and family's), favourite colour, but also the cclours you are most surrounded with, at home, commuting, at work, and at play. (And which colours to wear -- and NOT wear -- to such things as job interviews and family reunions!)
On the next page is an outline of a person seated in the "Lotus Position", and the location of the seven "Energy Centers" of the body pointed out. (Crown, Third Eye, Throat, Heart, Solar Plexus, Sacral, and Root.) No futher explaination is given of these energy centers, (that's for other books, I suppose)...but the listing and showing of where they are, is intriguing, and makes one want to study more.
The next page is entitled, "About The Author", and lists Mr. Holland's accomplishments. It also shows how to contacyt Mr. Holland, and/or sign up for his free e-newsletter.
On the back of this page is a listing of addresses, phone numbers and
e-mail addresses, for contacting "Hay House", the publshers of this book.
Not only in the USA...but world-wide, as well!
The very last page invites readers to tune into HayHouse radio, and shows a link, ([...]), to the radio station's website. (Worth at least a look, I think, for anyone interested in these things. As I know I am!)
This book is printed in a smallish, easy-to-carry size, and on the VERU best of "slick", (ie: thick, coated, magazine-style), paper.) It is an intriguing peek into what we were all born with...but which too many of us have lost part, or all of, due to the vicissitudes of adult life. Mr. Holland has written many other books as well -- bigger, more detailed books, I am sure. But this is a great place to begin! It is simple, easy-to-understand, full of common sense and wisdom....and beautiful, thought-provoking photographs.
So, while this small book may not be "Mr. Holland's Opus", it certainly is a wonderfully detailed primary book. Reading it, one realizes, again and again, and again, that "The Sixth Sense" really isn't esoteric or mysterious. (I begin to wonder, as I run through the pages, if this is how the "Organians", from the STAR TREK Classic episode, "Errand of Mercy", started. In this fictional story, these "Organians" were pure enetgy, and could do just about anything with their minds!)
In the real world, happily, thie "sixth sense", is truly part of EVERY Human's birth-right, and here, Mr. John Holland, who has kept, and/or reclaimed his own sixth sense, graciously and easily shows the rest of us how. in 101 easy-to-follow steps, to begin to reclaim our own!
Highest recommendation! : )
My only problem is the book is smaller then I thought, I guess I better read book dimensions better next time. With that said is does fit in my pocket book.
