Learn to flex that in­tu­itive mus­cle. “I de­fine in­tu­ition spir­i­tu­ally, as a thought form that orig­i­nates at a soul level – that core part of us that al­ways tells us the truth, no mat­ter what we might pre­fer to think, no mat­ter what we might want to hear,” says life strate­gist Suzannah Gal­land, who counts Gwyneth Pal­trow as a fan. Gal­land has helped count­less clients find love on­line by lis­ten­ing to their “gut hits”. “Each of us has enor­mous in­tu­itive po­ten­tial. It is a skill we can all de­velop.” En­ter the 6-Se­cond Rat­ing Game that Gal­land de­vel­oped, with 1 for a “neg­a­tive, de­ceit­ful” per­son, and 10 for “en­gag­ing, re­spect­ful, ro­man­tic”. Use this scale to eval­u­ate peo­ple and sit­u­a­tions through­out the day. “The more you do it, the bet­ter you’ll get,” says Gal­land. Ommm ... Do not un­der­es­ti­mate the power of a full body pam­per­ing ses­sion. At the Aman Spa in Aman Tokyo, the mag­i­cal Sig­na­ture Jour­ney body treat­ment is based on the Ja­panese phi­los­o­phy of pu­rifi­ca­tion, us­ing Kampo herbs and a tra­di­tional rit­ual, Misogi. The sen­sa­tion one is left with af­ter this treat­ment in­volv­ing Cam­phor pow­der, Kuro­moji, and rice oil is trans­for­ma­tive. A med­i­ta­tive gaze across the land­scape of Tokyo will en­hance this ex­pe­ri­ence. Vedanta needs nur­tur­ing. “It’s made up of two words – veda and anta – which re­spec­tively means, knowl­edge and end,” elab­o­rates Swami A. Parthasarathy, the 88-year-old founder of the Vedanta Academy. “What you pass off as love is noth­ing but pref­er­en­tial at­tach­ment. And pref­er­en­tial at­tach­ment is deadly. The home should be the cen­tre, not the bound­ary of your af­fec­tion or love. It be­comes the bound­ary when you can’t see any­thing be­yond it.” En­ter the soul. But first, em­brace you. “Be­fore you even work on your next pur­suit, work on you,” says Gal­land. Mind­fully prac­tise au­then­tic­ity – “the daily prac­tice of let­ting go of who we think we’re sup­posed to be and em­brac­ing who we are,” de­fines Brené Brown, au­thor of Ris­ing Strong. “Noth­ing hap­pens by ac­ci­dent when your soul gets in­volved. It is the most in­ten­tional pres­ence in your life,” writes Dr. Carder Stout. He fur­ther elab­o­rates that we should never ig­nore coin­ci­dences, be­cause “when we are over­come with psy­cho­log­i­cal pain, our soul steps in. Th­ese oc­cur­rences are meant to help us pause and recog­nise that we are still alive. Your soul in­forms your de­ci­sion-mak­ing. The essence fu­els your in­tu­ition.”
