    Lynn Robinson, M.Ed., is one of the nation's leading experts on intuition. Lynn has been working with individuals and businesses as an intuitive advisor, offering insights and teaching intuitive skills, since 1987. She is the founder and president of Intuitive Consulting, Inc.

    A successful and dynamic speaker, Lynn offers business, motivational, and personal growth lectures on such topics as Trust Your Gut and Make the Sale! – Intuitive Strategies for Sales Professionals, Intuition: The Best Consultant You'll Ever Have!, and Intuition: Your Coach for Life.

    Lynn Robinson is also the author of five books on intuition. Her book Divine Intuition: Your Guide to Creating a Life You Love (DK books, 2001) was named by as a "best of 2001" in the "Spirituality" category. She is also the author of Trust Your Gut: How the Power of Intuition Can Grow Your Business (Kaplan 2006), Real Prosperity (Andrews McMeel 2004), and Compass of the Soul: 52 Ways Intuition Can Guide You to the Life of Your Dreams (Andrews McMeel 2003).

    Lynn's business began, oddly enough, at the funeral of a friend. Guided by her intuition to sit next to a woman that she did not know, she responded without thinking about it to the question of what she did for a living with, "I am a psychic." Though she had contemplated becoming a psychic, she had never actually seriously considered it. At the time she was actually an operations manager at a software company. The woman, who turned out to be a reporter for the Boston Globe, asked for a reading and then wrote a very favorable article about her experience. Lynn gained more than 500 clients over the next few months.

    Lynn's gift seems to run in the family. Her grandfather was a police detective in war time London and a healer and psychic on the side. A native of Amherst, MA, Lynn has resided for the last 25 years in the Boston area and currently lives in Natick with her husband Gary, who she predicted she would meet and still loves, despite the fact that he forgot to play the winning lottery number that she picked ($5.2 million!).
