Description

INCREASING INTUITIONAL INTELLIGENCE: How the Awareness of Instinctual Gut Feelings Fosters Human Learning, Intuition, and Longevity is written as a companion to Love and Sterling's first book published in 2011, What's Behind Your Belly Button? A Psychological Perspective of the Intelligence of Human Nature and Gut Instinct. It is a response to the readers who have asked them to share more on how the knowledge of uniting Human multiple brains-gut and head-affects current theory and practice in a number of subject areas as well as life experience, wellness and longevity, and the evolution of mind. The authors have selected the title Increasing Intuitional Intelligence because the ultimate goal of their lives' work as counselors and educators has been to increase human intelligence through the development of the intuition using the Somatic Reflection Process, which they first created in the 1970s. Love and Sterling demonstrate that Intuitional Intelligence connects instinct and feeling (our unconscious) with reason and sensory input (our conscious mind) and is brought forward in our awareness as insight and intuition for creative life. The authors view Intuitional Intelligence as the link to our awareness of our Human Nature and the ability to be aware of our unconscious-our own inner state of being (self-awareness)-and to being aware of the feeling state of others (empathy). They propose that it makes sense even to the logical mind that the first place to begin the work to increase one's intuition and Intuitional Intelligence is within our own instinctual feeling state, where the impact of life is registered in our gut feelings of emptiness and fullness. Love and Sterling demonstrate that the problem has been that most people in our modern world are not aware of the important role of the gut holding our feeling memory and registering how life is impacting us. They suggest that the feelings of emptiness and fullness that are felt in our guts and relate to how well our needs as human beings are being met have for so long been confused in our awareness with the feelings of emptiness and fullness that accompanies hunger. The authors point out that we have missed the awareness of this vital instinctual feeling gauge in our gut. Until this feeling awareness in the gut is recognized and time is spent becoming aware of our gut feelings and the impact of life upon us from early childhood, Love and Sterling show us that we cannot step forward in developing higher mind and Intuitional Intelligence. In this book the reader will look further at the process of education of our instincts from birth through old age and lay the foundations for evolving the higher intuitive mind and creative thinking. This book is particularly important for those in the field of education as the authors make suggestions for the education K through 12 of the two brains-gut and head-as a uniting intelligence. They also explore our future Human selves and what it could bring to our species to follow our instincts and develop an increased awareness of our gut and head as a two brain united intelligence, fostering our intuition that leads us to advancements in the sciences, medicine, mental health, increased wellness and longevity, and even the development of human telepathic communications. You will find Increasing Intuitional Intelligence is divided into five main units that include chapters on the affects of consciousness of our gut instincts on many areas of life experience and are as follows: 1. Step One to Increasing Intuitional Intelligence! Educating the Gut Brain, Learning, & Childhood Development; 2. Instinctual Awareness and Its Affects Upon Longevity; 3. Gut Feelings and Intuitional Intelligence as Applied to Psychology; 4. How the Consciousness of the Gut as a Brain Affects Religion and Culture; and 5.

About Martha Char Love

The genesis of this book, Increasing Intuitional Intelligence, and it's companion, What's Behind Your Belly Button?, is based on the experience of the two authors working together in a college setting. While working as colleagues together at Santa Fe Community College in Gainesville, Florida, in the 1970s, they accepted the task of teaching and operating a Carrier Guidance and Assessment Program (Career Gap) that served both the community college students and as a use for the general public. The assignment was to establish a career center that would furnish students information about appropriate careers that they might choose for themselves based on personality, interests, experience, educational preparation, and goals. Experience with groups and individuals soon allowed feelings of the students involved in the career center to surface at a variety of levels, which were centered on personal disturbances. Hours of study of what they were learning from students, suggested that the two counselors were tapping into genuine universal instinctive feeling intelligence, primarily focused in the gut area of the body. It was at that time that they first wrote a text for their classes about the gut instinctive responses that they were discovering with people they were working with in career exploration. They also during this time, developed the Somatic Reflection Process (SRP) on gut feelings to unite body-mind and used it with hundreds of people in the counseling therapeutic process. The convergence of the two personalities and experiences, and the reflection on hundreds of others personal traumas in counseling using the SRP, enabled them to critically look at what was happening in counseling methodology and medical discovery, particularly when dealing with a wide variety of personal and social problems of others. It is with their personal backgrounds and individual experiences, along with their own further clinical research on the Somatic Reflection Process, that led them through time to a more accurate, more satisfying, and a more stress free image of Human Nature. Increasing Intuitional Intelligence: How the Awareness of Instinctual Gut Feelings Fosters Human Learning, Intuition, and Longevity is written as a companion to their first book and further explores the importance of developing the consciousness of Human gut instincts to unite the gut and head brains and thus foster the growth of intuition.show more
