Paramahansa Yogananda

Paramahansa Yogananda on Receiving Divine Guidance
Through Intuition

All of God’s children are endowed with the highest intelligence: intuition, the all-knowing wisdom of the soul.

To progress and to avoid the misery of mistakes, you have to find what is the truth in everything. This is possible only if you develop your intuition. That is the practical truth of the matter. That is why I am asking you to cultivate and use intuitive power in everything. In your relationships with others, in your business, in your married life, in every part of your life, intuition is essential.

Meditate until you feel that a sense of calmness fills the inner recesses of your body—until a divine happiness fills the inner recesses of soul—and breath becomes calm and quiet. Then concentrate simultaneously at the point between the eyebrows (Christ Consciousness Center) and the heart. Lastly, ask God to direct your intuition, so that you may know what you should do about your problems.
