Lynn is an expert, author, speaker and advisor, who helps people make changes and achieve their goals - both personally and professional - by following their intuition. Her most recent book is “Put your Intuition to Work”.
Intuition is immediately knowing or learning of something without the conscious use of reasoning. The three levels of intuition are Basic (the commonly-known gut instinct) - Expert (the capability to make accurate snap-judgments) - and Strategic (the flash of insight at the culmination of a conscious or unconscious thought process).
These are important decision tools, interpersonal skills, and emotional intelligence signals - and all three are strengthened through mindfulness practice. In fact, the process of mindfulness itself - to be calm, be present in the moment, to look inwards, to allow insight to arise without judging its contents - these are mindfulness practices that strengthen corresponding traits in intuition.
Mindful intuition can sense a deviation when the spreadsheet says otherwise, forecast a trend that others don't see yet, recognize patterns and apply subtle connections to make better decisions. It contributes to social awareness, emotional intelligence and communications - and, according to the U.S. Office of Naval Research, to leadership responsible for high-stakes, life and death decisions on the battlefield.
