Whatever Happened to Women’s Intuition? Dr. Olakunbi Korostensky knows how to get it back

I just discovered the most extraordinary woman! Dr. Korostensky was a guest today (Wed., 11/16/11) on my friend Jahnavi Foster’s weekly Wellness Radio podcast. Hailed internationally as an “inner flame rekindler,” Kunbi, as her friends know her, is determined to reawaken this valuable gift. 

For over 30 years she has dedicated her life to integrating spiritual consciousness into daily activities. A naturopathic doctor and psychologist with a master’s in energy psychology, her real break-through came during a near-death experience. “It wasn’t pretty, what I saw,” she reported. Women have become masculine; seeking validation by tuning out instincts and embracing intellect. Education and the need to succeed, it seems, are barriers between a woman and her natural gifts.
But it doesn’t have to be.
“It is my conviction that women have been endowed with very special gifts and we have not been placed on this earth to simply survive or to suffer,” she states on her website There is no situation so hopeless, no problem so overwhelming, and no challenge so gigantic that you can't overcome it with the right perspective, right mindset and strong connection with your inner guidance.”
Dr. Korotensky participated in the podcast via phone from her home in Switzerland, which is why it came on at noon, EST, rather than the usual 6:00 PM. I dang near threw it off the air trying to call in – I just had to talk to her! Fortunately my publicist, Miranda Spigener, was tuned in. Hearing the program cutting in and out, she quickly texted me to for Pete’s sake turn off my radio.
When things settled down, I related that I had experienced heightened intuition during my pregnancies. Was that typical? I mean, I’m educated, pragmatic, and haven’t a lick of clairvoyance. Yes, she responded. The baby within can and will crash through the barriers. (Hence the cravings for pickles with ice cream?) I had never thought of this before, but the presence of the baby’s intuition goes a long way toward reinforcing the mother’s.
Kunbi’s book, Intuition Involution, Living By Intuition for a Balanced World in 2012 and Beyond is due for release even as I type. I’ll do a full review as soon as I can get my hands on it. Meanwhile, look her up. This is empowering stuff!

Hello Mary,

Just wanted to let you know that it was wonderful talking to you on Jahnavi's Radio Talk Show last Wednesdy. I'm delighted that my explanations helped put things into perspectives - about intuition in pregnacy - for you. Thank you for sharing your experience on your blog.
