Cognitive Intuition

Cognitive Intuition

Rather than continue to wring our hands over political issues that we are not going to change, I decided to write about something that is in a continual state of change, “Cognitive Intuition”.

Even the gods, if they do in fact exist (trust me - this is not about religion), cannot stop an idea whose time has come.

“Cognitive”- According to Webster cognitive is the act or process of knowing including both awareness and judgment.

“Intuition” - According to Webster is quick and ready insight.

I want to make my starting point crystal clear; several factors determine your life story whether it will be happy or miserable, success or failure, health or sickness a large part relates to your Cognitive Intuition.

I was recently asked by psychologists, “how does this work and how can it help the general public, but mostly how can it help our youth”?

While counseling some young men (I call them the oversize generation because of the drop-down pants), they may be reluctant to admit it there is much fear during the transitional stage from young adulthood to adulthood.

Contrary to what a lot of people think, most young people are basically good and decent but with so much to deal with it is easy to lose one’s way.

All parents know about the power that can be exerted by peer pressure, it is very difficult to make that transition alone - call for backup.

Cognitive Intuition provides the strength to make the right decisions; try this analogy.

Consider that we are all born with a miners cap with the flashlight on the front. Consider for a moment that you are getting ready to go into a difficult situation; you simply switch on the light which illuminates all that lies before you. Now you realize there is nothing to be afraid of as you can clearly discern the proper path to follow. The problem is that most young people don’t realize or don’t know how to turn on the light.
