Ok, I'll admit it! I've been a Trekkie for most of my life. Little did I know, as I sat glued to the tube for at least an hour each week (and then five times a week) that I was being introduced to a basic concept of metaphysics.
Most of us take it for granted that thought and emotions are just natural qualities of the human mind or "psyche" (the word "psyche" is from the Greek word for "soul"...therefore psychology was originally the study of the human soul, and only later became a study of the unbalanced mind).
Intuition, on the other hand, is placed in a category all its own, somewhere outside the normal range of human experience.
But is it?
If you were ever a Star Trek fan (and if you're not, I'll explain the picture you see above) then you remember that Spock was the "logical" one (thought), Dr. McCoy was the "emotional" one (emotions), and Kirk was...well, Kirk was the Captain. He was the one who took in the information, observed the situation, considered the consequences of his options (including the emotional consequences) and then made choices that he then used to direct the Enterprise and the crew.
Kirk used his intuiton. He drew upon his training, experience, and his "gut feelings" to make fast and (usually) correct decisions to guide the ship on its missions and keep everyone safe and alive. Well, maybe not if you were wearing a red shirt (sorry non-Trekkies, inside joke :-)
To me, the ship "Enterprise", represents the human being. The crew is like the cells and organs. It was the sharply developed qualities of the "mind" of the ship - it's Captain, First Officer, and the Doctor - that made the ship extraordinary, and kept so many of us highly entertained for many years.
Unfortunately, in most modern Western cultures like Europe and the U.S., the quality of thought has been given the lion's share of the attention. With the growing awareness of "emotional intelligence" that gross inequity has been somewhat remedied.
But it is only very recently that intuition - the "inner captain", that quality that allows us to tap into the subconscious mind, receive guidance and inspiration, and make high calibre decisions and choices - has been generally recognized, accepted, and given the attention it so deeply deserves.
Developing intuition takes time and practice, just like learning to think, or discovering the true purpose of your emotions. Add highly developed intuitive abilities to well managed thoughts and emotions and discover a level of mind and a quality of life experience that was previously beyond your imagination.
