Intuition for Starters
How to Know and Trust Your Inner Guidance
Swami Kriyananda (J. Donald Walters)
Practical Guidance for Daily Life
Every day we are confronted with difficult problems or complicated situations for which we either don't have enough information to make clear-cut decisions or for which there is no easy intellectual answer. At these moments, we all wish for another way to know how to make the right choice.
There is another way: through using our intuition. More than just a "feeling" or a guess, true intuition is one of the most important-yet often least developed- of our human faculties. Often thought of as something vague and undefinable, many people mistakenly assume that intuition cannot be understood and developed.
Intuition for Starters straightforwardly explains what true intuition is and where it comes from, describes the attitudes necessary for developing it, and gives you easy-to-understand practices and guidelines that will help you tap into intuitive guidance at will.
What Others Are Saying
"Intuition for Starters is a small book on the basics of intuition and following your intuition. While there are several books on the subject available and many more that have a chapter on intuition, this book is unique in one very important aspect. It is the only book I have seen on intuition that effectively explains how to know when something is intuition and when it is not. People often learn to distrust their intuition because it has proven wrong when in reality it was not intuition at all. Learning to discern when something is truly your intuition speaking to you and when it is not is critically important if you are to trust your intuition. This is a recommended read because the discussion of discerning intuition is so well done."

"Having just experienced a situation in which I thought my intuition had utterly failed me, I’m indebted to this book for clarifying what intuition actually is and for giving solid guidance in becoming more intuitive. Explaining that we are created with a subconscious, conscious, and superconscious mind, Kriyananda explains: 'The subconscious mind can all too easily intrude itself on our conscious awareness, tricking us into thinking we’re getting intuitive guidance, when actually we’re merely being influenced by past impressions and unfulfilled desires.' He adds that intuitive guidance 'is always based in a deep sense of calmness and detachment.' Kriyananda offers exercises for tapping into the superconsious (the source of intuition), for obtaining greater awareness of chakras, and more. Based in part on the teaching of Paramhansa Yogananda, this book is an excellent beginning point for anyone who wants to understand or better utilize innate yet undeveloped intuitive skills."
"Swami Kriyananda extends a warm and welcoming invitation to anyone called to explore their greatest inner asset. This excellent book will surely help you tap into your intuitive powers."
