Medical Intuition – The Gift of Physical Body Insight
Caroline Sutherland

Medical intuition is the ability to see beyond the normal levels of perception into the subtle levels below as it pertains to the physical body and its processes. Many people have this ability. Your local chiropractor, for instance, uses applied kinesiology, a form of medical intuition, to determine structural imbalances. The body speaks through this method, enabling the chiropractor to determine the appropriate adjustment. Applied kinesiology or muscle testing is now used by many alternative and mainstream health care practitioners. It is the body’s way of revealing hidden clues to the practitioner, and this system can be easily learned.

For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in medicine. As a young child, I would run around the house in a nurse’s cap, taking people’s temperatures, checking pulses, and wrapping bandages around the imaginary wounds of my family members. I used to pull a huge chair over to the desk in the library where my father was studying for his final exams in tropical medicine. I would clamber onto the desk so that I could reach for the medical books that seemed twice my body weight. There I would pore over pictures of people in the advanced stages of yaws, elephantiasis, and leprosy trying to figure out how they got so sick. Little did I know then, that seeds were being planted, that would bear fruit decades later, in the exciting field of medical intuition.

The key to medical intuition or any other psychic or intuitive ability is a quiet, receptive mind. A mind that is well-trained in any profession will almost always develop intuitive ability. The more a person works at their craft, the more intuitive that person will become in their area of expertise. The rational or trained mind becomes the filter through which the intuitive impressions are received. Meditation, prayer, and quiet receptivity are prerequisites for this ability. Medical intuition comes from the spiritual level; it comes from God where everything is known.

Perhaps one of the most gifted medical intuitives of our time, whose insights have fascinated both lay people and professionals, is fellow Hay House author, Caroline Myss. Her popular books have helped thousands of people understand their illnesses from an emotional and spiritual perspective. It was Caroline Myss who coined the phrase “medical intuitive” to describe someone who has this gift.

Edgar Cayce was another famous medical intuitive. There is a River – the Edgar Cayce Story, by Thomas Sugrue, documents his fascinating life and abilities. This illiterate man with no medical background practiced clairvoyant diagnosis for over 40 years. He devised all of his cures in the sleep state or a deep trance. People would come to him with all sorts of problems. Cayce would lie down, take a nap, or drop into this deep altered state and let the solutions for their health problems come to him. Medical doctors were constantly impressed by Cayce’s level of accuracy and his specific knowledge of physical body processes, something he apparently knew nothing about when he was awake.

Belief in the person who is delivering the message and the information that is being given is a fundamental element in healing. Edgar Cayce’s successes had as much to do with the belief that people had in him as the cures he dispensed.

My medical intuitive ability does not revolve around the emotional or spiritual levels or the sleep state. My eyes are wide open, I’m fully aware, and the practical suggestions drop into my mind. “What does this body want,” is the question that I ask myself.

While the emotions and the spiritual are taken into account, my strength seems to lie specifically on the physical level, probably as a result of my training in Environmental Medicine, where I worked as an allergy-testing technician for many years.

During approximately three decades of immersion in the complementary or alternative medical field, it has been clearly revealed to me that there are certain simple principles, which when implemented, can make a tremendous difference to a person’s health and well-being. Like the indigenous people who saw Columbus’s ships for the first time, when their eyes were trained to see beyond their normal experience, they were open to whole new realm of possibility.

Anyone can learn to have intuition and develop physical body awareness. It takes time, practice, and a practical framework for seeing with a new set of eyes. There are many courses offered in developing your intuitive abilities and I offer an online intensive training in medical intuition each year. It is useful to learn all that you can in this regard. Your instincts will develop in your own way. Although courses may be useful, ultimately your instincts will come through you and become defined in your own unique manner.

Medical intuition, like anything else, is not the domain of a very few. Medical intuition or body awareness exists within each person. Allow yourself to develop your own instincts in ways which are appropriate and make sense to you. Trust these instincts and utilize them for better health. In all of my books, I endeavor to help the reader to develop and hone their own intuitive gifts.

Optimum health is not a mystery. I have to report that people are looking all over the place for answers to their health concerns when most of the solutions are right in front of their noses. If I had not witnessed this dramatic transformation thousands of times in thirty years of experience, I would not have believed it myself. The Universe makes things simple – if we need something, it is never very far away.
