Getting to Intuitive Intelligence Through Intuition

To tap in the whole of our intelligence, we need to allow mental and emotional space to relate to the intangible and the unconscious, to integrate what is complex, and to accept that our human nature is playful and instinctual. We also need to address our fear of the unknown and our need for control. If we fail to properly manage these, they can easily and even inadvertently turn into obsession, aggression, and destruction. It takes awareness, focus, and discipline to turn the human instinctual force into creative collaboration. Intuition helps us achieve all of this.

Figure 6.3 shows how Intuitive Intelligence facilitates a synergy between our rational mind and our instinctual aptitudes. Our intellect and instinct work together and feed one another: intellect operates from deductive and inductive reasoning, instinct from direct perception. Intuition bridges the gap between the two and receives information from our feelings, emotions, physical sensations, and direct perception.
