Lynn Robinson has been dubbed America’s leading expert in intuition, and the wellness guru’s unique approach to living a happy and healthy life has been touted by The New York Times, Glamour and Red Book – to name a few.

We had the opportunity to chat with Lynn about what intuition is, and how you can embrace your inner voice in order to see positive changes in all areas of your life. If you sometimes feel like you’re searching for answers, or simply want to take control of your own destiny, read our thought-provoking interview with Lynn below.

We know you’ll be blown away by her profound insight, and will likely want to learn more. If you’re in the Boston area, you’re in luck, because you can chat with Lynn in person at the Clarins Wellness Event at Bloomingdale’s Chestnut Hill on October 18th. Click here for details and to RSVP.

What is intuition?

The dictionary defines intuition as “quick and ready insight, and it has often been referred to as the “still, quiet, inner voice.” I believe intuition is our inner guidance for a successful life. We all have it and can tune into it for direction in our life. I like to think of it as a “Compass of the Soul.”

How can we tap into our intuition?

I tell people to ask their intuition questions such as “What’s my right next step?” Or, “What do I need to know about this person or situation?” Listen for the answers.  Meditation is also helpful, even if it’s for just a few minutes at first. Make time to slow down during the day and take some deep breaths. Intuition usually comes during quiet moments.

Are so-called coincidences and intuition related?

I’m a big believer in paying attention to signs, coincidences and synchronicities. It is definitely one of the ways that intuition guides us. I call them “Intuitive Nudges.” If I’m confused about something and need direction, I ask for an unmistakable sign about the right decision or direction to take. The answer may come in the form of a song on the radio, a sign on the road, a conversation I overhear or an article I’m drawn to read.

What about dreams? Do they tie into intuition?

Dreams and intuition are very related. Many people (even without special abilities) get answers and predictions from dreams. Your dreams can reveal many truths about your life. They can provide extraordinary intuitive insights, and give you information that can help your health, lovelife and career. You’d be surprised at the straightforward advice that your dreams give, either spontaneously or on request.

How can people use intuition to live a happier, healthier life?

The word “enthusiasm” originates from the Greek root, entheos. It means, “God within” or “guidance within.” What are you curious about? What excites you? What do you want to do more of? What comes easily to you? These are critical clues from your intuition about the right endeavors to pursue. The other way is to keep your focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want. Holding positive thoughts about your goals will help you attract the circumstances to achieve them. It’s very difficult to be happy when you are holding thoughts like, “I’m not good enough,” or “I don’t how.” Try saying statements like, “Things have a way of working out,” or “I know I’ll figure it out” instead. Those are the ones I use to make myself happier!

What mantras, or positive phrases, do you find most effective?

“My intuition always guides me to a fun, happy and prosperous life!” You can’t get better than that!
