“The only real valuable thing is intuition”- Albert Einstein


Think about it. To start with, as babies, we’re born into this world with an inner knowingness that, regardless how significantly different it feels being outside of our mothers’ wombs, all is well. This knowingness is called intuition. Some people call it the inner voice. Some call it a hunch. Often time, when someone asks how you know, the answer is often “I don’t know. I just know. I feel it in my heart and my gut”.

Intuition is a process that gives us the ability to know something directly without analytic reasoning, bridging the gap between the conscious and non-conscious parts of our mind, and also between instinct and reason. (1) Instinct is an innate inclination towards something or someone or a behavior, beyond learned response.

To make the most effective decisions, we need both intuition and reason.

Intuition helps us to take chances and to venture out into unknown zones. It helps us discover more ways, usually more effectively, to move towards our desires and wishes. It also lets us know what serves us best in a situation when we perceive there is a lot of uncertainty and when most things feel unfamiliar and unknown.

While there is an innate process to gain this clarity in the midst of uncertainty, we don’t always trust our intuition. Sometime we hear it, but often do not easily take any action in accordance with it. For many of us, we do not even have an open connection with our intuition. “How do I know it is my intuition speaking?”

Exactly! How can you trust something that you are not familiar with? We are not familiar with intuition because it has not always been embraced as part of our upbringing. Again, Albert Einstein is of the following opinion “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created the servant and have forgotten the gift”. When growing up, many of us are conditioned to not trust our intuition. This could be deeply ingrained as a running program in our subconscious mind.

Untapped intuition is a huge dormant support that is in everyone of us.

Come and discover with hypnotherapy what may be holding you back from hearing and trusting your intuition. With this understanding, you can change your beliefs to more positive and uplifting ones. This is not a workshop to improve your skill in tuning into your intuition.

Past participants to these workshops often say they are very positive, supportive, encouraging and often enlightening.

Note: There will be a group hypnotherapy session. Hypnosis is safe and you are always conscious. Contrary to some belief, you will not give up any control. People suffering from epilepsy and psychotic illnesses are advised not to join. Please note that lunch is not included and payment is done through an external partner (Eventbrite)
