Everyone has an intuition. It is that voice inside of you that tells you when you should or should not do something. It is that nudge in your mind that comes about when you wouldn't even have thought otherwise to double-check or re-think something you're about to do.
Ultimately, it may have already saved your life several times. However, you should be more in touch with it then probably are now. You need to listen to your inner-being and be reseptive to the instinct. It will probably take awhile to learn to trust it and to learn when it just paranoia from your logical mind. Try the pendulm exercise located on the bottom of this page. It will help you...and if you still crave more exercises-sign my guestbook and make a note of what you want to see more of.
Most people can do this. However, some people who are not open to learn, usually can not. Feel free to ask your spirit as many questions as you like and learn more about them. This is the source of your intuition and is essential that you understand your inner being. When you indulge in things you love to do, that makes your inner child happy. When you do something bad or someone hurts you, that is also affecting your inner child.
Also you can use a pendulm for psychometry. Place the pendulm over the object and ask questions with yes or no answers to determine age, origin, owners, and anything else you can find out about the objects past. Everything leaves an impression so this should be interesting to find out more about your possessions.
