O, Birther of the Cosmos, focus your light within us -- make it useful
Create your reign of unity now
Your one desire then acts with ours,
As in all light,
So in all forms,
Grant us what we need each day in bread and insight:
Loose the cords of mistakes binding us,
As we release the strands we hold of other's guilt.
Don't let surface things delude us,
But free us from what holds us back.
From you is born all ruling will,
The power and the life to do,
The song that beautifies all,
From age to age it renews.
I affirm this with my whole being.
by Saadi Neil Douglas-Klotz of the Sufi Order of the West

We are all of us mulitsensory. The very thought that people think we only have five senses is so preposterous these days that I don’t even bother to stop and comment on it anymore. To me it’s in the same category as someone believing the world is flat. I just can’t even go there anymore.
The difference between someone who is refining their intuitive skills and someone who isn’t is a matter of self-esteem. It’s not a matter of meditation, and certainly it’s not a matter of what you eat. Someone with self-esteem can eat cat food and they’re going to do better than someone who goes to Whole Foods and shops and has low self-esteem. It’s all about trust.
Intuition is not about a skill to protect you from life’s journey. Intuition is about making choices that in the moment follow the guidance that is coming through. It is not about finding a way to make sure that the guidance you pick guarantees you will be protected.
Always go with the choice that scares you the most, because that’s the one that is going to require the most from you.
