What is intuition? Does it play a role in your life? Oprah talks with Laura Day about the power of intuition and how it can help you recognize untapped abilities in all areas of life.
Laura is the author of The Circle: How the Power of a Single Wish Can Change Your Life and Welcome to Your Crisis: How to Use the Power of Crisis to Create the Life You Want. She says intuition is a source of knowledge from within that everyone has at every age. "Without having any other information, intuition is that direct knowledge, that direct oneness with the energy that is all of us," she says.
Laura says young children tend to listen to their intuition more so than adults do. "Intuition is a survival skill and when [young people] are put in situations … that [they] don't have the intellect or experience to deal with, intuition is [their] default," she says. Laura says intuition is unmistakable because it is direct, immediate and accurate knowledge. Once your start listening to your intuition, Laura says you will tap into abilities you never knew existed and then improve your life.
Oprah says intuition led her from a news anchor job in Baltimore to hosting her own talk show in Chicago and making smart business decisions along the way. "For me, intuition has been a major force in my life and I am grateful to all that is God that I have been smart enough to listen to it," she says. "Intuition is what first told me I needed to have my own studio. Intuition told me that I needed to own myself."
