Inquiring into Intuition

by Kay Packard

Do you have a flair for inspiration, insights, revelations, visions, dreams and /or intuition? There are a number of markers that can be identified in the hands that indicate staggering talent and inclination for intuitive vision. I came across one of those stunning markers this past week during a reading. She had a beautiful, clear and perfect whorl in the lower and outer area of the palm called the Moon zone. Open the pdf link Intuition Inquiry to see prints and the entire article.

It’s extraordinary for a whorl fingerprint pattern to show up in the palm of the hand. When it does, it calls for special attention and must be discussed. It’s an eye catching design in nature like the spot on a leopard or a hump on the back of a camel. You just can’t help but notice it and be in awe.

A talent is the ability, flair or aptitude for something. Sometimes the use of a talent looks to be simple and naturally given to the owner. However, talents need to be nurtured and developed. An inclination is a preference in behavior. Certain markers in the hands show innate proficiency and affinity for use. With more and more practice the associated skill becomes expertise.

In some cases the owner of the moon whorl, or other intuitive skin carvings, may possess an obstruction to awareness of their perceptive abilities. The question that came to me during our session: What is intuition?

Our busy world has shattered the telescopic vision that is accompanied with heart and soul. American Society has been heavily rewarded for the use of reason and logic. It is important to have the ability to think, consider and analyze. To round out our human faculties, we must appraise intuition and its value?

At the moment of my client’s question, “What is intuition?” I was at a loss for the most profound answer. My logical mind was triggered and I quickly searched my internal super computer for an answer to impart. After a deep breath and concentrated eye contact, I hoped that the answer would transfer from me to her without words – after all intuition is about impressions and ‘knowing’. I didn’t see that working either. One simple description that came forth was: Think of yourself driving down an open and deserted country road when unexpectedly you let your foot off the accelerator without a reason. The car slows down just enough for a deer to leap across the road in front of you and all you see are her rear hooves escaping the scene – without a scratch. No thinking was involved, right? There was neither time nor need for deliberation.

Her question launched me onto an expedition to more deeply understand and better articulate this unseen world.

That evening I had a discussion with my gal pals on the topic of intuition. They’re all moms. One told me of an experience she had where she was walking into Ross clothing store when she was pregnant with her first child. For some reason she happened to notice the license plate of a car that was parked in front of the main doors into the store. She memorized the license plate, for whatever ‘reason’. While shopping inside the store she heard the clerk yelling, “Stop that woman.” The woman was stealing clothing and making her expeditious exit. When the police came, my friend had remembered the license plate number and gave it promptly to the police.

Another gal pal explained that she and a girl friend were driving home one dark night. They were on a quiet country road about two miles from one of their homes. A vehicle with a powerful police light was following them attempting to pull them over. They hadn’t done anything wrong. There were no other cars that may have been affected. They were confused at the reason for being wrestled to the side of the road. My friend said “we’re almost home, just keep driving – don’t stop.” Who doesn’t stop when police lights are hot on your tail? They didn’t. They turned off the road into the neighborhood and the ‘police’ car kept on going. The next week there was a report in the paper about a girl who was pulled over by the ‘police’ and beaten up and raped. The acknowledged intuition saved my friend and her friend from a potential tragedy.

Yesterday, a friend and colleague invited me to look at a plethora of books on healing she was recently given. The only one I picked out and brought home has a section clearly defining Intuition – as much as words can be used to describe the phenomenon. How synchronistic is that? There is an answer for every question. Or is there a question for every answer?

In The Sufi Message of Hazrat Inayat Khan, he says Insight shows itself in aspects of impression, intuition, inspiration, dreams and revelations. Reason and intuition are competitors and both are needed and have value. How is the use of intuition versus reason distinguished? During a situation intuition usually comes up first. Then thought takes over. Since thought comes after the first hunch or impression, the thought gets the primary attention which then motivates final action.

To develop the intuition this Sufi mystic says, “The best thing would be first to try and catch the intuition and distinguish and know and recognize it as intuition; and then to reason it out.” Impeding, self doubt of the messages must be replaced with self-confidence for successful inquiry into intuition.

Khan also wrote, “Intuition is the faculty of the heart that feels deeply, be it a man or woman; the quality of intuition belongs to a sympathetic heart.”

Intuitive inclinations and talents appear in the hands as:
• The whorl in the Moon zone (above)
• Arc around that same area in the palm
• Six pointed asterisk in that area
• A series of vertical lines on the mount just under the pinkie finger
• Six pointed asterisk in the middle section of the thumb
• Star at the very bottom center of the palm
• And more

Everyone has the capability to intuit. You don’t need a secret symbol in your hand to tap into the silent source of awareness. The marker brings crystal clear clarity to me, the hand analyst, for the owner to notice and give considerable contemplation to their Divinely given gift. At their worst, these individuals ignore the gift and isolate themselves from all possibilities of deeper awareness. At their best, these folks help others to unlock the secret door to the sacred knowledge behind inspiration, revelation, impressions, dreams and intuition. How cool is that!

What’s the value of intuition? It helps us access our core identity, our deepest interior, our most natural state of being; perhaps, heavenly living at its best. For the more practical person intuition can offer a solution to a mind-boggling problem. Let’s ask Einstein.

What are your insights about intuition?
