A man should learn to detect and watch that gleam of light which flashes across his mind from within…. Ralph Waldo Emerson, vision therapy I wrote about in an earlier post—from which, BTW, I have just graduated, improved visually, cognitively and energetically.


Carol, thanks for this great blog, which I am new to and looking forward to going through your achieve.

I think that while we celebrate the strengths of intuition and seek to improve our relationship to it, we should also recognize its dangers.

Generally among our artistic brethren, the general tendency is to romanticize it, but I think it is important to also educate and remember its limitations.

Thanks for such a great blog!
