You're facing a particularly difficult decision concerning your job, or a family matter, or perhaps even something mundane. You've weighed the pros and cons carefully but nothing quite tips the balance sheet one way or another, yet you know something, however gently or indistinctly, is telling you to choose one over the other. It's just a feeling, you say, in your gut, in your bones, or something in the air, or a restless night's sleep brought on by a curious dream. That's your intuition talking to you. But how often do we really listen to what it is telling us?

Intuition, says Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz in this edition of Body & Soul, is something that we all have the capacity for; our brains are wired for it. Besides being a physician, a Ph.D., and an author, Schulz is also what is known as a medical intuitive. For the past 10 years she has been doing telephone consultations for people she has never met and knows only by their name and age.

After much deliberation and with more than a little skepticism, Ann-Marie Almeida made an appointment with Mona Lisa Schulz and found herself on the telephone one morning in 1998 listening to a complete stranger pinpoint the location of a fibroid tumor in her abdomen--a diagnosis Ann-Marie had heard from her doctor several years earlier.

Belleruth Naparstek is a psychotherapist and the author of Your Sixth Sense. She refers to intuition as everyone's "standard equipment" and offers 10 tips on how to unlock its power.
