In 1986 Susan King hit her head—hard—in a car accident. The result was more than a concussion. Afterward, when King looked at people, she saw images of events occurring in their lives and had flashes of insight about them. With uncanny knowledge of their situations, she has been able to advise clients on everything from job searches to divorce proceedings. King refers to her work as intuitive counseling, and though her vocation may seem rarefied, she believes that intuitive power is available to everyone. “To me it’s our body’s radar, helping us make all sorts of decisions—if only we’re willing to pay attention.”
