What is intuition
Intuition is that little voice inside that feels like a hunch or nudge or little whisper of information. It’s literally your internal guidance, guiding you. (Janis R. Cohen)
Intuition in its simplest form is your gut instinct guiding you. It shows up in different ways, it can be really subtle or it can be quite ‘loud’.
Subtle intuition could be when you get an inkling to call someone because you have been thinking about them, or you can get intuitive signs which reinforce the hunch you’ve had had.
If you’re in danger, you could get a very clear, loud, urgent sign to change course.
Clair (s) - 4 ways we receive information
1. Claircognizance means clear knowing.
2. Clairsentience means clear feeling.
3. Clairvoyance means clear seeing.
4. Clairaudience means clear hearing.
Each of us has a primary way of receiving information. So how do you figure out which one is yours?
Imagine you walk into a restaurant, what do you notice first? What you see? What do you hear? What do you smell and sense? And what do you know. That is immediately your primary way of receiving. And then all the other ones support that. (Janis R. Cohen)
These intuitive gifts are available to everyone. When people are in touch with their intuitive gifts, it’s a knowingness inside. This is a neutral knowing, in the same way there is a 6th sense, which you can’t always explain.
Everybody is intuitive and psychic, people just don’t pay attention and dismiss a lot. (Janis R. Cohen)
How to tap into your intuition
1. Create an intention to do so: get really clear about what your intuitive sense is vs what your ego says.
2. Create awareness: be in a state of awareness so that you are open to receiving information.
3. Be in an imaginative state: be in the here and now, be open to anything being a possibility and embrace being playful.
4. Develop intuitive currency with yourself: keep track of your intuitive nudges in a notebook, you will then start building up your intuitive currency and intuitive trust.
5. Trusting what you get: don’t ignore those subtle nudges.
6. Taking action on what you receive: this can guide you to just be.
7. Validation: when you step into the life of being an intuitive person.
The more you have the intention to receive information, the more you open up your awareness: the more you’re in a playful state where you’re allowing things in, the more you document… It’s like you build that muscle and you start to live in a space of receiving. (Janis R Cohen)

Using your intuition in session with clients
As a therapist, it’s amazing to be able to draw from the vision of insight that you have and you’re able to pick up on things that your client is struggling to put into words, or maybe they are not even aware of.
This is the way to go, in terms of shifting and expanding not only how you show up as a therapist, coach or counselor and how you serve the clients, but also how you can grow your business. (Janis R. Cohen)
It is important that you trust yourself and lean into those nudges or hunches and share them with your clients. More often than not, it is indicative of the way they are feeling, or something they are going through, but they may just not be able to verbalize it in a way that makes sense.
