You Do Know: Learning to Act on Intuition Instantly by Becky Walsh

You Do Know: Learning to Act on Intuition Instantly-Becky WalshSynopsis: In the past few years there has been an increase in the use of the word intuitive. This increase has been a direct result of the way we describe the intelligent functionality of technology, such as a smart phone or an application. In addition many business people, such as Apple creator Steve Jobs and Virgin tycoon Richard Branson, have credited their success to ‘ideas through intuition’.

Intuition is no longer seen as something wooly but as a valuable life skill. We have also seen a rise in the popularity of books that talk of ‘silencing the mind’, revealing the importance of being without ego. You Do Know blends these two subjects together by explaining how to make decisions without ego, therefore making decisions without fear.

Many people don’t know how to trust their intuition. In You Do Know, Becky Walsh explains that this is because until now people thought there was only one kind of intuition. Becky has made a revolutionary discovery: that there are two forms of intuition. One form works through ego and the other though love. To back up this realisation she has turned to neuroscience, psychology and spiritual teaching to draw all the pieces together. She explains to the reader in simple, practical terms how to use both forms of intuition.

In addition, Becky explains how interactions without ego-judgement affect us positively in friendship, business, relationships, family and community. This shift will change our world dramatically from both a personal and global perspective, as we realise that intuition is the key to the shift in consciousness that humanity needs to fix the problems we currently face.

You Do Know: Learning to Act on Intuition Instantly is a fascinating book about intuition. The author Becky Walsh shares her own personal experiences and examines the different types of intuition; what it is and why you need it, how to find your life purpose, how to live intuitively and much much more!
