The Intuition Principle is a book about intuition. A typical intuition book covers the basics of how to awaken and use your own intuition. I enjoy books like this, and that’s what I was expecting out of this book. The Intuition Principle is so much more. It goes much deeper than the typical book in this genre; discussing intuition as a guiding force in your life, giving guided meditations to practice, and discussing intuition’s place on a global scale.
I was actually a little put off at first. Angela spends a lot of time in the first few chapters talking about finding and following your passion. She discusses using your inner guidance to live your life purpose. I wasn’t expecting this at all, and after having read a few “find your purpose / live your passion” books lately, I was a bit burned out on the topic.
I found that I had to reframe my expectations of this book and my concept of intuition. The thing is, in order to truly follow your intuition you really need to be open to the idea that intuition is more encompassing than simply making small decisions on a daily basis. It’s also about making major life decisions. In fact, using intuition for major life decisions has a much greater impact, and is ultimately more useful than the small scale daily intuition that I’m used to.
Once I reframed my thoughts on intuition, I was able to enjoy and make better use of book.

The table of contents doesn’t really give you a full picture of the flow of this book. The Intuition Principle felt very cohesive, and each chapter easily flowed into the next.
My favorite part of the book was the guided meditations. I often see a lack of creativity in guided meditations, with most being a rehashing of the same basic script. Each of Angela’s guided meditations was unique and direct in purpose. She provides guided meditations and visualization exercises to open different aspects of intuition and to get guidance on common life issues.
Here are some examples of the guided meditations and visualization exercises.
- Learning to meditate
- Develop your intuition
- Career and finance
- Answers about relationships
- Check in on your health
- Getting answers to complicated questions
- Meeting your guide

Angela also provides a number of exercises related to these guided meditations. These meditations, visualizations, and exercises really help you take action. You can immediately start working on using your intuition to develop different aspects of your life.

If you are expecting the typical book on intuition, you might be a little disappointed initially. I was at first, but I’m glad I stuck it out through the first few chapters. There is a lot written about finding and following your passion, and the first three chapters spent a lot of time on this. If you really want to jump into the intuition stuff, you could skip the first three chapters, and then come back and read them later.
The real gems for me were the guided meditations and visualization exercises. Angela put a lot of thought into these and you can jump right into using them to develop your intuition. There were so many exercises, meditations, and visualizations that I feel like I have a full toolbox to develop my intuition and also to begin using it to improve my life.
I also really liked the epilogue about healing ourselves and our planet. This takes everything we learned about intuition The Intuition Principle and put into a global perspective. It reminds us how our individual choices affect the world as a whole. Something clicked for me in this section. I had never thought about how my intuition had been telling me to cut back on my consumerist tendencies and what the impacts outside of my own life could be. Angela also discusses how closing off our intuition can wreak havoc on the planet. One example being that our intuition would tell us that drilling for oil in the oceans is extremely risky to the aquatic ecosystem. Deep ocean oil spills are difficult to clean up and have far reaching consequences. Our intuition screams at us that these things are risky and dangerous, yet we ignore it in favor of cheap gas.
Overall I really enjoyed reading The Intuition Principle. Even though I have already read several books on intuition and have been practicing developing my own intuition, I found much good material here that I hadn’t seen or considered before. Angela opens up a broader perspective of using intuition and I’m inspired by the prospect of taking my own intuition up a notch to have a larger impact on my life as a whole and even on our planet from a global perspective. I definitely recommend this book for anyone looking to add intuition to their lives, from a small scale to answer daily questions all the way up to a global scale to solve the problems of the world and everywhere in-between.
