You may find you know what someone is going to say before they say it. You are able to see patterns and understanding cause and affect. Our intuition guides us all the time with almost a six sense and one of the best ways to connect with your intuition is to open your third eye chakra. You maybe asking yourself, "What is a chakra?"
