CONTEXT Context of the intuitive experience
Where physically: Five out of nine experiences occurred in my office, while the other four occurred in my car or at the gym. Most of my intuitions were work related. Since I spend over 40 hours a week at work, I am not surprised.
Where mentally: Most of my experiences happened when I was in a relaxed state of mind. I was usually focused on a particular issue. I needed to be in a calm state of mind for my intuitions to occur.

EXPERIENCE The intuitive experience
Just before: Usually I was thinking about something specific or trying to make a decision. In most cases, I was in a peaceful state of mind which made it easier to recognize an intuition. As a result, I recognized most of my intuitions immediately following the experience.
At the moment: Most of my experiences came to me as a thought. I could literally see the words come to me in a flash telling me what I needed to do. Furthermore most of my intuitions provided me with insight on a problem I needed to solve.
Just after: Initially most of my intuitions were ambiguous and came unexpectedly. However in the last few experiences, my response was a decision I needed to make to solve a specific problem. Listening to my intuition, I responded appropriately on several career decisions.

OBSTACLES Obstacles to the intuitive experience
Physical tension: The more relaxed I was, the easier it was to experience an intuition. In situations where I experienced more tension than usual, the information was ambiguous. However in situations where I was relaxed, the information was usually crystal clear and right on target.
Fears felt: For several experiences, I feared I would jeopardize my relationship with the firm. The fear of not succeeding in my career played an important role in evoking The Intuitive Self.
Desires felt: My desire to succeed professionally has been a stimulant in the development of The Intuitive Self. By balancing fears and desires related to my professional life, I intend to use intuition to my advantage.
Mental clutter: When the intuition involved my professional life, my mind was usually focused on a particular issue. However when it involved my personal life, my mind was cluttered with thoughts of things I had done or needed to do.

SOURCE Source of the intuitive message
Conscious to
Subconscious: 2.6
In five out of nine experiences, the information was conscious. On two occasions, it was a mix and on two others it was subconscious. Most of my intuitions were conscious since I was often contemplating the advantages and disadvantages of the alternatives in the decision I needed to make.
Internal to
External: 2.4
Since no external cues were involved, for six out of nine experiences, the source of the intuition was from within. In two experiences, the information was a mix, while only one was external. Most of my intuitive experiences came from my own inner dialogue.
Rational to
Intuitive: 3.0
Six of the nine experiences were rational, two were a mix, and only one was close to intuitive. This pattern may reflect that my intuitions came as thoughts. Often I was rationally contemplating whether or not to do something.

MESSAGE Classification of the intuitive message
Type: 3,6,0,0,0 Six of my experiences were work related. I also had two personal experiences that occurred after our class on Tuesday at the gym. Finally I had a personal experience which occurred in my car.
Form: 0,0,1,8,0,0,0 All of my experiences except one were thoughts. Since I am more rational than intuitive, The Intuitive Self was strongly connected to my thoughts.
Kind: 5,0,2,2,0,0,0 Five of my experiences came as an insight for a decision I needed to make. Two intuitions suggested that I do something for reasons I was not clearly aware of. The other two were impulses.

INFORMATION Information in the intuitive message
Strength: 6.6 In all of my intuitions, the information was very strong. I easily recognized the intuition once I started to become consciously aware of The Intuitive Self.
Clarity: 5.2 The information was crystal clear in six of nine experiences. On three occasions, the information was ambiguous and did not make any sense.
Surprise: 4.1 Six out of nine experiences were not surprising since I was contemplating whether or not to do something. Two were a total surprise while only one was a mix. As I became more aware of The Intuitive Self, the surprise element gradually diminished.
Accuracy: 7.0 All nine experiences were right on target. Even though I had several experiences that were off target, I only wrote about accurate intuitions since they were easier to recall. I am confident it will become easier to recall instances were my intuition is off target.

EVALUATION Evaluation of the intuitive experience
How intentional: On two occasions, I evoked evoke my intuition. Here is an opportunity for my development of The Intuitive Self.
Information use: The information was always useful and sometimes gave me the insight I needed to choose between different alternatives in a decision I was faced with.
Benefits derived: The benefits derived were a direct result of how I responded to the information. I benefited in different ways as I either avoided danger or made career decisions.
Personal learning: I have learned to pay more attention to The Intuitive Self and to listen to the constant cues that my body sends me. I also learned how to evoke my intuition which is very useful when I am faced with a decision that I am uncertain about.
