Intuition is resultant of pure mind. Devi Mahatmyam mentions that clarity of mind is related to mental purity. Mental purity comes with understanding of nature (Maa Parvati) and its intentions. Actions according to nature’s observation gives the flash of intuition. Nature has its own systematic pattern of ruling. Understanding of structured design is matter of higher consciousness. Shri Aurobindo writes in The Synthesis of Yoga that the true intuition exists from the self-existent truth. Pure intuition doesn’t allow the mixing of sensual errors or intellectual ideation. It is away from self-assured false certitudes. Intuition can be verified scientifically but in real sense true intuition is out of the boundary of verification as referred by Sanatan Dharma for intuition, an outcome of higher intelligence of spiritual mind.
Even Albert Einstein had given importance to intuition and credited it for his lots of scientific work. He said, ‘the intuitive mind is sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift’. He further added, ‘intuition is very powerful thing, more powerful than intellect, in my opinion’. In psychology, Karl Jung has mentioned intuition as part of survival instinct. Intuition is associated with inference in Indian philosophy. It must be based on logical reasoning originated from experiences,  attentiveness, meditation, receptivity, freedom of attachment, freedom of judgement, self-knowledge, interest and trust. Attachment or biasedness is biggest obstacle in intuition. Logical apprehension of observational truth and its systematized pattern of development is important among them.
Many of scientists refuse to believe intuition, still they follow their instincts number of times during practicing with name of experiences. In real sense, it is mental disposition of possibilities and depth imagination. It is pure science where imagination is not restricted by limited sources of logical or scientific proofs. It is only possible when mind is free from distrust and suspicions. It is higher state of knowledge or mental processes possible through meditation.
