Both here and in the 'outside' world, there are some ideas about intuition which - in my opinion - don't fit reality. I've written already a few scattered reactions to it, but I think it's time for an overall post about it.
Let me first present those ideas. I'm going to present them in an exaggerated, extreme way, to make clear what I'm talking about.
"Intuitives are gifted people. Reality is all interconnected and they are able to see those connections. They are spiritual people unlike the lowly (sensor) masses."
Intuition is not better than sensing. If I say it this way, probably everybody would agree. But still, I have this impression (intuition? ) that people want to belong to the "gifted" intuitor group...
Reality is not all interconnected. Face it. There are some universal laws governing reality - but intuition doesn't see those laws.
Intuition creates connections: right and wrong ones, useful and useless ones. Sometimes intuition hits on an universal law, most of the time it's just seeing the virgin Mary in a cloud.
You've got to test the theories. Are people born in January really more intelligent than others? Use statistics. Test those people. Use the real facts - the Sensor facts - to see whether your idea fits reality or not.
I'm an Intuitive and proud of it. But it's not a mystic power.
