*64 Intuition is the intelligent resolution of problems without an intellectual process. Intuition is invaluable help for both a practical and spiritual life. It awakens once we "nullify" the entire intellectual process in resolving problems and leave the solution to a deeper component of intelligence in completely abandoning the belief that the ego can resolve the problem. Then, at the edge of a deep sleep and waking, it enters quietly, usually with the awaking of intuition in the consciousness. See Wise Old Man archetype.
