Andrea Hess: Unlock Your Intuition

Andrea Hess is one of my favourite people :). I’ve been an avid reader of her blog for a while now, and I can honestly say that Andrea’s articles have played a big role in helping me to align with my highest path and purpose. Even though I came to Andrea’s site already fairly familiar with my own intuitive abilities, I have had quite a few “a-ha!” moments while reading through Andrea’s blog, and my spiritual growth has progressed in leaps and bounds as a result. It was no surprise that I therefore jumped at the chance to purchase Andrea’s book when it came out!

Unlock Your Intuition is best used as a workbook. It is full of practical exercises to help you to hone your intuitive ability to the point where you can easily and reliably access it when you need it. I tend to read books straight through fairly quickly when I first get them, as I like to get the framework of the material in my head before I dig deeper into the nitty-gritty of the information. I did this with Andrea’s book, skimming through each of the exercises – but since then, I’ve been going back (and back and back!) to the book, doing the exercises and adding new layers to my intuitive ability each time.

The book begins by focusing on the practice of divination, either dowsing using a pendulum or with a simple muscle testing exercise that you can perform alone. I would encourage you to pay particular attention to these grounding exercises – the discipline learned through this practice is invaluable, and it will stand you in good stead when you do move beyond this. The book’s later chapters will help you take your intuitive skills further through receiving accurate information through asking open-ended questions and communicating with your spirit guides.

As with the articles on Andrea’s blog, this book benefits from her ability to explain concepts clearly and simply, and Andrea’s down-to-earth nature and great sense of humour shine through. This is a well-written and extremely valuable book.

Wow, Mags!!! I was just reading your comment on my blog again, and I keep meaning to check out your blog ... so over here I click and surprise! I couldn't imagine a nicer first sentence :-)

Thank you so very much for your kind review of my book. I'm so honored!! And I'm thrilled that it can contribute another level of intuitive development to someone who is already a fellow "woo-woo" person.

Thank you again! You really made my day.

Hi Andrea

I'm so glad I could make your day! And you've made mine, by visiting my site - thanks for popping in!

This past year has been an incredible journey for me, and I'm very grateful that you've been part of it. Thank you for shining your light on the world!

Hey Mags,

I love how you've embraced the label woo-woo - it made me smile when I discovered your blog.


I too am a big fan of Andrea's book - I am truly so impressed with the way she's taken some very intangible subjects and nailed them down with practical techniques.

Thanks, Slade - the term "woo-woo" also brings a smile to my face :). I'm up for anything that makes me smile!

I've been reading you blog now too for a little while (found you through Andrea, and I enjoyed the teleclass you two did together as well!), and I love your perspective on things.

I think that the fault lies with me and not with Ms. Hess or her methods. That said, I must be doing something wrong since it didn't work for me.
