For me meditation creates a space in my body like a little clearing in a dense forest. Into this magical space intuition often appears. Words, thoughts and ideas pop up and I see something with great clarity. During Laura’s illness, when we had no time to procrastinate and we had an overwhelming amount of advice, I had to rely on my intuition as my guide. It was a huge shift. All my life, I’ve tuned this intelligence out, thinking I needed outside help – an advisor, a guru, a book, a friend or a teacher who knew more. But maybe this part of the journey for me is learning to look within and trust myself. I started listening to the Deepak Chopra/Oprah Winfrey online meditations at the Gerson clinic. I still listen everyday.
