Doctor Oz did a show focused on the power of intuition. Have you ever had a hunch, gut feeling, sixth sense or sneaky suspicion about something? Sometimes this intuition can be more powerful than rational thinking. Dr. Oz mentioned stories like a mom who wakes up in the middle of the night because of an intuition and finds her child in trouble, and a nurse who has an intuition that her patient is in trouble before the lab results are in. A woman named Susan knew that she had cancer years before she was diagnosed and an emergency responder to hurricane Katrina was able to use his intuition to sense a trapped man in an area that had been searched many times. So how can we use our intuition to help us find the best relationships and guide our lives? Char Margolis, author of Discover Your Inner Wisdom: Using Intuition, Logic, and Common Sense to Make Your Best Choices,and Judith Orloff, author of Second Sight: An Intuitive Psychiatrist Tells Her Extraordinary Story and Shows You How To Tap Your Own Inner Wisdom, joined Dr. Oz to talk about the power of intuition. Judith Orloff works as a medical intuitive and uses all of her senses along with medical tests to form her diagnoses.
How Does Intuition Work?
Dr. Oz says that our brains are very good at storing past experiences, so that when we have a new experience, our brain quickly tries to match it to our past experience to “cut to the chase.” So the more experiences we have, the faster we can “cut to the chase”… maybe this is why older people are more wise!
