Access your Intuition

Paul and Gina discuss the fine art of accessing and using your intuition. Do you often have a gut feeling to do something, a calling perhaps? Do you follow it through with action, or just ignore it? Using your intuition as a way to finding solutions to current issues can bring greater meaning and clarity to your life. Simply ask yourself: “What do I love?” and you will hear your intuition speak. It’s a simple as that! Your intuition speaks the truth. Follow your intuition, instead of your rational mind, and you’ll be much happier.
