“The person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.”
—  Chinese proverb

We know far more than we think we know, and in ways we don’t really understand. But while we may not fully understand how we know what we know, if we practice paying attention to our intuitive hunches in the right way, we can learn how to make the best use of both our intuition and our logic, resulting in much better, more effective decisions and relationships.

Did you know that from 1972-1995 there was a secret US Army unit eventually called the Stargate Project? Managed by the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Stanford Research Institute, a group of physicists, scientists, and military men were trained in Remote Viewing ( a form of intuitive or psychic work) with the purpose of investigating the potential use for psychic phenomena in military and domestic intelligence applications, most especially to “see” or gather important information at a great distance.

The Soviet Union was similarly engaged in “psychic spying” as well. Both countries actually had some major successes and gained some significant strategic advantages thanks to their highly trained remote viewers. Would you be surprised to know that the 2009 George Clooney movie “The Men Who Stare At Goats” was based on mostly real people and true incidents? Well, it was. The practical value of intuition has been proven over and over!

As coaches, our job is to be in a dynamic, free-flowing professional relationship with our clients, with the possible purposes of bringing higher, wiser perspectives to them, helping them understand themselves better, and guiding them to make better choices for themselves in their lives. If you’re not using both intuition and logic in your decision-making process, you’re probably missing out on important information!

What role should our intuitive perceptions play in our decision-making processes, and how can we make sense of our choices when our logic and our intuition seem to be giving us contrasting messages? Intuition can seem mysterious and random, but in actual fact it is not! Come join us for this intriguing discussion and enjoy participating in some fun intuitive experiments as a group!
