Definitions on intuition

“Intuition is light itself, and when it is functioning, the world is seen as light and the light bodies of all forms become gradually apparent. This brings with it the ability to contact the light centre in all forms, and thus again an essential relationship is established, and the sense of superiority and separateness recedes into the background.” Source: Ponder on This (compilation from books by Alice A. Bailey)
“Intuition is an inner insight, an inner vision; a deep comprehension in the light of a pure consciousness; the spiritual wisdom and spiritual love (cognitive and activating/active principle); the light revealing the light within.” Source: Darja Cvek Mihajlović

“The sixth sense is aural sensitivity, extrasensory perception.” Source: Darja Cvek Mihajlović

“Intuition brings with its appearance three qualities: Illumination, Understanding and Love.
Intuition is a comprehensive grip of the principle of universality or the sense of universal Oneness.
Intuition is the synthetic understanding which is the prerogative of the soul.” Source: Ponder on This (compilation from books by Alice A. Bailey)

"Intuition is our natural tool for a successful decision making. It is anability to process vibrations from the unconscious and use them in the process of systemic decision making along with the objective knowledge (acquired by learning) and subjective knowledge (acquired by experiencing)".Source: Violeta Bulc, 2012

Intuition is the ability to acquire knowledge without inference and/or the use of reason. Source: Wikipedia (Intuition (psychology), June 2013

“Intuition is an "irrational function", opposed most directly by sensation, and opposed less strongly by the "rational functions" of thinking and feeling. It is a "perception via the unconscious": using sense-perception only as a starting point, to bring forth ideas, images, possibilities, ways out of a blocked situation, by a process that is mostly unconscious.” Carl Jung's theory of the ego, described in 1921 in Psychological Types

"Follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." Source: Steve Jobs

"We perceive intuition with the quietness in our head and relaxation in our body” Source: Neja Zupan, 2012

Epistemology (from Greek ἐπιστήμη (epistēmē), meaning "knowledge, understanding", and λόγος (logos), meaning "study of") is the branch of philosophy concerned with the nature and scope (limitations) of knowledge. It addresses mainly the following questions:

  • What is knowledge?
  • How is knowledge acquired?
  • To what extent is it possible for a given subject or entity to be known?

Much of the debate in this field has focused on analysing the nature of knowledge and how it relates to connected notions such as truth, belief, and justification. One view is the objection that there is very little or no knowledge at all—scepticism. The field is sometimes referred to as the theory of knowledge. Source: Wikipedia (Epistemology), May 2013
