Laura Day says that intuition is innate. “It is part of our human hard-wiring,” she claims in the early pages of her new book, How to Rule the World from Your Couch. So why didn’t I see the stock market crash coming?

According to Day, we are simply too busy to pay attention to what we know. Few would argue that life gets more complicated every day, and it is the distractions of survival that block our ability to sense the right choices through intuition. “Intuition,” she tells us, “is accurate insight and information that you have not gained through the everyday use of your five senses.” She makes a good point. How many times have you reasoned it out only to come to a false conclusion? How many lists of pros versus cons have you made that led you down the wrong path?

In How to Rule the World from Your Couch, Day attempts to help readers appreciate the value of intuition and to improve the ability to use it as an integral component of every strategy and every decision. In the course of this comprehensive training, she covers mediumship, telepathy, remote viewing, precognition, and healing through the transfer of energy. That sounds like quite an ambitious undertaking, but all of it is built upon the foundation of a basic principle: awareness leads to understanding and wisdom.

“Intuitive skills cannot be fully understood until you have experienced them,” Day warns. With that in mind, she offers exercises to address each of the topics she covers. These are not difficult exercises, either, but they do require full commitment by the reader. Simply reading the book doesn’t count as practice.

Already known for her bestsellers such as Practical Intuition and Welcome to Your Crisis, Day is also a leader of seminars and workshops and a popular guest on Good Morning America and Oprah. It’s no surprise that her approach to developing intuitive abilities has made her a star; unlike the hundreds of others claiming to have the ability and willing to share it for a hefty sum, Day’s goal is to teach people how to access their own skills. Granted, you’ll be charged for the book, but even psychics have to make a living.

How to Rule the World from Your Couch is one of those beautifully designed books that I always delight in reading. It’s pleasant to hold and look at, with a simple, elegant layout that makes it easy for readers to flip back and quickly find passages they may want to revisit. Topics are categorized logically, and each one is thoroughly addressed in a non-pretentious but convincing manner. As noted, the exercises assigned to each topic are simple, requiring no props or gizmos, and the instructions clear.

Anyone interested in connecting to their own inner knowing will find that How to Rule the World from Your Couch is a practical and effective place to begin. Laura Day’s advice, personal experience, and encouraging words to others take this book beyond the standard self-help works. She even urges readers to contact her for private discussions, backing up her statement that “Your success is mine and mine is yours.” How to Rule the World from Your Couch is one of the very few books in its genre guaranteed to steer readers in the right direction.
