Many people believe they aren't intuitive, that they don't have any psychic gifts at all, and that the woo-woo stuff is for somebody else much weirder than you are. Personally, I don't believe that is the case. From having worked with all kinds of people over the years, I believe you are intuitive, even if you haven't yet recognized exactly how you receive your information. You have intuitive gifts because you have a soul. I believe you always have access to your intuitive gifts if you just stop long enough to pay attention.

It doesn't just happen automatically, and it takes practice. New scientific research suggests that resilience isn't something with which only a fortunate few of us have been born, but rather something we can all take specific action to develop.
