How to Know and Trust Your Inner Guidance

Not scheduled at this time.

with Nayaswami Mukti

Intuition is a human faculty deeper than thought – the clear inner knowing of what is true. Intuition is one of our most important faculties, though often undeveloped. In this program you will learn:

  • What is true intuition, and where does it come from
  • Attitudes needed to develop intuition
  • How to listen to, and trust, your intuition
  • Easy-to-use practices for intuitive guidance 

“We struggle to make sense of life segment by segment instead of as an over-all flow. Viewing everything fragmentarily, like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, no coherent picture emerges, no path, and no direction to guide our understanding.

There is a way for us to find that path, however – to feel a part of that greater reality, and therefore to know what is right for us as individuals. That way involves opening ourselves and becoming receptive to higher potentials of consciousness within ourselves, and thereby of living in harmony with the world around us. It involves developing our own inner sense of intuitive guidance.

Intuition for Starters Book

Intuition is the innate ability in everyone to perceive truth directly – not by reason, logic, or analysis, but by a simple knowing from within. That is the very meaning of the word “intuition”: to know, or understand from within – from one’s own self, and from the heart of whatever one is trying to understand. Intuition is the inner ability to see behind the outer forms of things to their inner essence.” 

Intuition for Starters by J Donald Walters (you will receive this book as part of your weekend program)

Try this now: Relax your body. Uplift your eyes gently to the point between the eyebrows, the spiritual eye. Sit quietly and concentrate on the flow of your breath as it enters and exits the nose. Allow the mind to quiet at it concentrates more and more deeply on the breath itself. When the mind becomes still, offer up a question you may have to that point between the eyebrows. In the silence, listen for a whispered answer.

Enjoyment in class at The Expanding Light Retreat

"Intuition comes from within; thought from without. The former gives a face-to-face view of Reality; the latter gives an indirect view of it. Everyone has the power of intuition, as they have the power of thought. As thought can be cultivated, so intuition can be developed. In intuition we are in tune with Reality — with the world of Bliss, with the inner laws governing the spiritual world, with God."     —Paramhansa Yogananda


“Thank you for sharing your insight into the ways we can get in touch with our intuition. I had several lovely experiences where I was able to tap into a higher, fuller (non-emotional) energy which gave me meaningful glimpses into a part of myself that I normally do not visit. Calmer, clearer, not so mixed up”  N.B., Sacramento, CA
