Listen: Trusting Your Inner Voice in Times of Crisis is so clearly and simply written that even a person experiencing the brain fog of crisis should be able to follow the simple and helpful action steps found in each chapter, designed to lead them to a firmer footing and effective decisions. But don't assume you need to be having a crisis to benefit from it. It may be even more valuable to those who seek to become more attuned to their intuition when life is relatively calm and peaceful. Writers, artists, entrepreneurs—anyone—can benefit from sharpening this sense. Honing intuition before a crisis occurs will put you ahead of the game when one does arise, and that will surely happen. Lynn Robinson reminds readers that at some point in life we will all face a wrenching crisis such as the loss of a job or a loved one, marriage, betrayal, financial reversals, crushing illness or accident.

As a complement to the simply written process she outlines in each chapter, Robinson urges readers to keep an Intuition Journal. Each chapter of the book concludes with specific instructions for using the journal to extend the benefits of material covered in that chapter. Each one of these journaling tips will lead to fascinating insights for anyone, quite apart from other material in the book.

Robinson's writing voice is so warm, it sounds as if your best friend is right by your side helping you navigate stormy waters. That is partly due to the fact that she includes many stories of her own experiences and times she faced down demons of fear, doubt and uncertainty. She also includes plenty of anecdotes about coaching clients who successfully used her techniques in a wide variety of circumstances. Through the combination of her deft writing skills and no-nonsense approach, she has demystified a topic that many consider a bit edgy and dubious. Whether you are currently in a crisis or simply curious, read this book for your own benefit, and then share it with your favorite skeptic.
