Lately I’ve been becoming more and more aware of the intricate way we’re all connected to each other. The ‘6 degrees of separation’ theory says that, through the network of the people we know and the people they know etc, none of us is more than 6 steps away from knowing everybody else.

But, when you see how something like a chance word or a snippet of an overheard conversation can create an incredible domino effect that leads to amazing things happening, you may begin to believe that we’re much closer!

For me, acting on intuition has brought the most amazingly wonderful results of late and led me to people, circumstances and events that have the potential to literally change my life, in a very positive way!

Everybody is intuitive. It’s as natural to us as breathing, but, as we grow up, most of us efficiently bury it deeply in our rational minds and become afraid to trust it because, let’s be honest, sometimes what it’s prompting you to do just doesn’t make sense!

And, because we’ve always been told that ‘sensible’ equals ‘responsible model citizen’ the ability to listen to our gut feelings is suppressed.

But it’s not gone away you know!

It’s always there, always prompting you to make that phone call or take a left turn or contact that old friend, but so many times we choose not to listen, or we rationalise the feeling out of existence.

To access and learn to use your intuition is very simple. You knew how to use it as a child and it’s just like riding a bike – you can never forget. All it takes is for you to be willing to listen and to trust what you’re hearing.

Start small.

The next time the phone rings, see if you can tell who’s calling before you answer. You only need to relax and not fret or strain. Just still your mind and notice what images appear. It could be a face or a name or a feeling.

If you get it wrong, don’t worry. How many times did you fall off your bike before you found your balance?

Intuition is a precious gift that connects us to each other in ways you simply can’t imagine, until you begin to follow it and see where it leads!



In 2015, I set up Horses Connect, a non-profit company based in the West of Ireland dedicated to helping people of all ages, with all kinds of life and other challenges.  After a colorful and adventurous life (career-wise)  I now work with people and horses. I teach and I learn – boy, do I learn!

Horses connect us to our true value and full potential in a unique and powerful way and it is my privilege to facilitate that connection. We design a range of equine-assisted programs for individuals and groups, and our equine team help us deliver those programs.

I am particularly interested in personal development and was blogging about the topic long before blogging became popular, or profitable.

I have a Masters in Writing from NUI, Galway and tons of other random qualifications.
