CONTEXT Context of the intuitive experience
Where physically: The distribution was: home (2), hotel room (1), car (2), casino (1) and work (3). There does not seem to be a pattern. However I was alone when most of the experiences occurred.
Where mentally: My mental condition was: tired (1), relaxed (3), thinking (4) and wishing (1). With the constant state of awareness I have developed for my immediate environment, my mental state does not seem to directly influence my recognition of intuitive experiences.

EXPERIENCE The intuitive experience
Just before: Almost every experiences occurred just after a period of mental activity. It seems as if a lapse occurred that allowed the intuitive thought a chance to come through and be recognized.
At the moment: I was mostly directed into taking an action to prevent a negative result that would occur if I ignored the message. When I was clear about the message content, my reaction was usually calculated, or at least understood the ramifications of inaction.
Just after: I changed a presentation, concentrated on my breathing, noticed a restaurant change, avoided a ticket, ignored a message, helped change a measurement statistic, had one flop, began work on a report and mowed the lawn. All were immediate actions or inactions resulting from the messages. All my choices were based on believing the message content.

OBSTACLES Obstacles to the intuitive experience
Physical tension: In most situations, I was either tense, very tense or became more tense because of the message. Since I am normally an easy going person, tension seems to be my best indicator of potential assistance from an intuitive experience. The more tense I become, the more likely I need to respond immediately.
Fears felt: All of my fears centered around a negative impact on myself. Whether it was bad job performance, poor family focus, losing money or simply trying to avoid negative experiences, I was concerned with an impact on my self image. I guess I am too worried about how others perceive me.
Desires felt: Like the fears, the desires were for good job performance, quality family time, hassle free living and even a cash windfall. These desires all reflected a "me" orientation.
Mental clutter: As my mental state varied from none to very cluttered, the messages did not need a clear mind to be recognized. Maybe it was due to the message strength or its applicability to my mental clutter, but I was usually aware enough to notice intuition even during trying times.

SOURCE Source of the intuitive message
Conscious to
Subconscious: 5.3
Most my messages were subconscious ranging from a value of 4 to 6. The very nature of intuition makes me lean toward the subconscious since a conscious feeling indicates a more rational process for me.
Internal to
External: 4.3
I had three clearly internal, five clearly external and one inbetween source for my messages. With no pattern, I believe I simply maintain an open attitude to receive messages as they occur.
Rational to
Intuitive: 6.1
All of my messages were in a range from 5 to 7 with an obvious slant to intuitive sources. I did not write about messages that were too rational so I could analyze experiences that were more intuitive.

MESSAGE Classification of the intuitive message
Type: 5,4,0,0,0 My messages were split between personal and professional. Since I had the opportunity to select from a constant supply of experiences, I simply chose those that were easiest to writeup.
Form: 0,2,1,4,2,0,0 Since I receive messages on a constant basis, I experience intuition in various forms. There does not seem to be a pattern except that intuition seems to flow in a variety of ways for me.
Kind: 1,2,2,3,1,0,0 The kind of messages was as varied as form. However all messages indicated a need to change my course of action to avoid an unpleasant situation.

INFORMATION Information in the intuitive message
Strength: 5.9 My experiences were in the range from 4 to 7 with a slant toward the high end of strength. I am usually very busy. Maybe I am only recognizing strong messages. This suggests I may have an opportunity to work on messages that are weaker.
Clarity: 5.3 The range for clarity was from 3 to 7 with most messages indicating the need for a change in action. Since I view clarity as exactness, I rated most messages as average due to the lack of specifics.
Surprise: 3.7 The surprise factor was mostly low with a range from 2 to 7. Since I expect intuition in my life, I am usually not surprised. The one 7 was a timing fluke where my wife felt my need for her to contact me when I was thinking about her.
Accuracy: 5.3 The accuracy range was from 1 to 7. Although the messages were more accurate than average, they were not accurate enough to specifically suggest what my response should be.

EVALUATION Evaluation of the intuitive experience
How intentional: The distribution was: spontaneous (4), mostly spontaneous (2), somewhat intentional (2) and intentional (1). With the exception of the intentional message, they were mostly unintentional. I have these experiences so often that I simply did not try to evoke intuitions.
Information use: Generally I used information to better understand my environment and how I was interacting with it. The distribution was: changed action (5), better reaction (1), heightened awareness (2) and ignored (1). Usually I changed my course, but sometimes I simply ignored the message. However every time it gave me a better awareness of what was about to happen.
Benefits derived: The general benefit was betterment of my current situation. I usually trusted my messages and acted accordingly. As a result, I gained confidence in working through difficult situations and a better understanding of using intuition.
Personal learning: The personal learning theme centered on the need for awareness to accept intuitive help in life. Since I carefully attend to the environment, this awareness helped me achieve a new level of understanding about my interaction with circumstances.
