Mapping the kingdom of the Inner Voice for self-guided success.
People spend their entire lives second-guessing themselves by hearing, but not heeding, that inner voice which has both gentleness and clarity. Author James Wawro has mastered not only the ability to listen, but also the ability to teach others how to Ask Your Inner Voice.
Over 80 true inner-voice stories from history’s greats, to people alive today, including interviews with Oprah Winfrey and Neale Donald Walsch, whose personal stories add scale to a book work that maps the kingdom of the inner voice.
For those who wonder about “gut feelings” and receiving strong and accurate inner guidance on the important decisions in life, like decisions about career changes, relationships, and financial matters, Wawro says, “It can all be yours, if you are willing to ease up a little on your resistance to intuition, and simply let it be.”
Ask Your Inner Voice lays out the simple secrets people throughout history, and people alive today, have learned to use to call on their inner voice just when they need it. The book illustrates, through true inner-voice stories, the proven steps to connecting with inner wisdom. Each chapter ends with a “How To” section providing simple, “Try It” exercises to tap into those aspects of the inner voice.
Jim Wawro, a former senior partner in a 1400-lawyer international firm, condensed his study of proven methods for using the inner voice into this definitive guide to the wisdom that lies within every person. Website: www.ActivateIntuition.com.
“Wawro has written a well-researched, inspirational book about hearing the voice within. Read and study this book, and try it for yourself. Anyone can hear the ‘still small voice’ of inner wisdom and receive its guidance. You can, too!” — SUSAN SHUMSKY, Author, How to Hear the Voice of God and Divine Revelation.
“Perhaps there is nothing more important than learning to make decisions based not on fear, but on listening to the voice within, the voice of love. This is a remarkable book that helps us find our way.” — GERALD JAMPOLSKY, M.D. Author: Love is Letting Go of Fear; Forgiveness: The Greatest Healer of All.
James Wawro is a Cornell Law School graduate and member of the California Bar. He began practicing law in New York City, went on to establish his own law firm in Los Angeles, merged his international litigation practice with a 1,400-lawyer international law firm and became a senior partner in that firm.
After 28 years of representing litigation clients from Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Liechtenstein, Mexico, The Netherlands, The People’s Republic of China, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom and the United States, Jim resigned his law firm partnership to write full-time from California’s Central Coast.
During his years of practicing civil litigation in one of the world’s largest law firms, Jim began to notice that there were other laws—unwritten laws—that anyone could use to make the right choices, gain creative insights, solve problems, gain access to the wisdom of the ages, and find a direct path for communication with the divine.
Studying the application of these laws in the lives of great thinkers throughout history and regular people alive today, Jim developed a framework for understanding one’s inner voice: what it is, how to recognize it, how to contact it, how to listen to it, how to test it, when to rely on it, and how to distinguish it from other inner promptings.
Ask Your Inner Voice condenses that study into a definitive guide to the wisdom that lies within each individual, a comprehensive and clear explanation of the steps on the path to inner listening.
Intuitive Author Jim Wawro
In 1921, Carl Jung theorized intuition as “irrational function” and “perception via the unconscious.” Psychology and science continue to try and understand where intuition comes from and how it plays in our daily lives, potentially the universe, as well as how intuition can be harnessed.
Cornell Law School graduate Jim Wawro chose a different route. Utilizing everyday terms, Wawro wrote “Ask Your Inner Voice,” a book designed to aid each of us not just in understanding what intuition is, but its significance as inner wisdom and how to reap the benefits of that wisdom.
While on the surface the subject may sound complicated, credit Wawro’s vast experience in communication as an attorney and public speaker with reducing the complex into a written dialogue designed to be discussed over coffee or the neighbor’s fence, and since we’re talking about a book… a very enjoyable read that includes references to historical figures as well as interviews with contemporary notables such as Oprah Winfrey and modern day spiritual messenger Neal Donald Walsch.
We all have intuition: that unexplainable turn right when logic said ‘left,’ carrying an umbrella on a cloudless day, the trip we opt to reschedule for no apparent reason, or our child we suddenly decide to drive to school one morning instead of letting him or her walk.
Why do we do these things and how can we best tap into this unconscious wisdom and make it conscious? “Ask Your Inner Voice” provides those answers and more.
Q) Briefly, when and how did you first realize intuition was something each of us could tap into and use to our advantage?
A)When I was trying cases, I would often get powerful intuitive “hits” that usually proved exactly correct—particularly in the jury selection process where intuition is about the only thing you have to go on. As I got comfortable with using intuition, I realized that I could actively call on it to get meaningful answers. I’m basically a trial lawyer, not a psychic, and I soon came to understand that intuition is simply an inherent human power that everyone has if they want to develop it.
Q) What is it about intuition that caused you to explore it to the depths of writing a book?
A) After experiencing several instances of surprisingly accurate intuition, I decided to look into what has been written throughout history about intuition to see what more I could do with it. And I found that not much has in fact been written about intuition. So, since I found it so valuable in my life, I thought I could make a contribution by writing a basic book about how anyone can actively use their own intuition.
Q) You were a senior partner in a 1400-lawyer firm, regularly lecture on a variety of topics, and have written articles in a growing number of journals and magazines. So, I have to ask, did or have you met with resistance to your belief in our ability to accept intuition as a personal wisdom we can each empower?
A) Everyone has had a remarkable hunch, coincidence, or intuition come to them at least once in their lifetime. So people generally accept that they do receive valid inner messages that they should pay attention to. In fact, if you don’t acknowledge the validity of inner messages from conscience, for example, society calls you a sociopath. The only real resistance I’ve encountered is as to how much to trust intuition; whether to rely on intuition instead of “cold, hard facts.” But I’ve rarely met an individual who felt comfortable ignoring a strong “gut feeling,” and that goes for some pretty tough customers, including police officers and trial lawyers.
Q) How has channeling intuition changed your life?
A) That story is told in Ask Your Inner Voice:
It happened at about 6:20 p.m. just as it was getting dark on a rainy Southern California winter evening. After driving into the street-level secured parking for my condominium complex, I got out of my car as the lattice-work metal garage door was sliding closed. When the door slid to within about four feet of closing, a person ran from the sidewalk into the garage. He was about 5’8″, weighed about 140 pounds, and was in his early twenties. I am much bigger than he was. He had a bandana pulled up around his nose. As he ran past the closing gate, I heard him pump a round into the firing chamber of the pistol he was holding.
He ran toward me and demanded the gold Rolex I was wearing. I was not afraid but I was very alert. I was not at all thinking of being spiritual. I could not see him clearly because he was backlit by the fading daylight from the garage door. He repeated the demand. By this time he was nearly next to me. I took off the watch and gave it to him. I was standing by the open car door. At this point he said: “Turn around and lie down in the car.” My first thought was that he wanted to kill me.
I paused for a moment trying to decide whether to attempt to overpower him or to, as I then thought, let him kill me. I decided to try to overpower him. When I got that thought, almost immediately I received a deep inner knowing that the reason for his demand was only that he wanted a clean getaway. I paused for an instant to consider whether to follow that inner feeling. He repeated the command that I turn around and lie down in the car. I decided to follow the inner knowing. At that point he simply ran away. There I stayed for a moment, completely unhurt, oddly relieved that the garish Rolex was out of my life, and feeling compassion for a young man whose life was supported by armed robbery. The emotion of the experience was gone within the hour.
I repeated the incident to a friend, who commented “You just bet your life on your inner voice.”
Q) Why should a working mother of three read “Ask Your Inner Voice”?
A) Mothers know that they often have to use their intuition to make decisions in the best interests of their family based on incomplete information. Ask Your Inner Voice sets out a few, historically proven steps for them to use to verify that they have connected with their intuition and that the information they have received from within is reliable. If you’d like to be centered and to make wise decisions with confidence, this book’s for you.
Q) Any parting comments for your readers?
A) You don’t have to wait for intuition to come to you. You can ask your inner voice any question about finances, health, or relationships and get reliable answers. Try it! ##

“Sometimes, words come up from very deep within us. Somehow, we can sense they are different from our other thoughts. They may come in the form of an instruction, or a phrase of special wisdom. If we heed them, ensuing events always prove how absolutely right these words were. This guidebook is about how to make a stronger connection with that inner voice, how to recognize, contact, test and listen to it, and when to rely on it. [Ask Your Inner Voice] is illustrated with over 80 true inner-voice stories, including interviews with Oprah Winfrey and Neale Donald Walsch.”–Cygnus Books (UK).
“This book takes the reader on an inspiring quest for the Inner Voice, starting off with conscience and its part in rightful action, moving to intuition and hunches which enable us to make appropriate decisions, towards inspiration and inner guidance as an effective tool in a chosen field of expression. The thorny question of discernment is discussed; how can we trust what we hear? How do we formulate precise questions in order to receive clear answers? . . . Clearly [written] from deep personal experience, a number of practical examples are given and writing exercises suggested. Inspiring quotes from well known authors, as well as many testimonials from people who have had startling experiences and insights prove that we are not only equipped with intuition, but that we have access to divinely inspired guidance and an inner connection to the whole of Creation. . . .”–UK customer review from www.amazon.com.
“I have found that following up on hunches, feelings or listening to my inner voice produces much better answers to questions than if I simply rely on logic. This book teaches how to access that inner knowledge found inside each of us and encourages the reader to follow that inner guidance in order to live a more peaceful, satisfying life. There are exercises that teach you how to do it and true stories contributed by people illustrating how accessing their inner voice helped them make the best decisions. Highly recommended.” –US customer review from www.amazon.com.In 1921, Carl Jung theorized intuition as “irrational function” and “perception via the unconscious.” Psychology and science continue to try and understand where intuition comes from and how it plays in our daily lives, potentially the universe.
