Intuition can be very important.
But one should only follow intuition if one is sure of its origin.
(what I have called the long distance connector)
The interrupts of the subconscious often look very much like intuition,
but differ in that they are most often an unconscious fear or desire.
Real intuition does not carry those feelings,
although it can induce them.
Learning to differentiate these interrupts, and others,
is both as easy and as difficult as learning to use a microscope.
One needs to practice (and test/verify for feedback) to get the hang of it.
