I recently completed a movie on intuition. It’s called PGS – Intuition is your Personal Guidance System.
It had a highly successful cinema run in the US and Australia and now it’s available online to rent or buy – check the website for details.
The film details my four year search to find the source of a voice which saved my life. The film features some of the world’s leading experts on intuition, spanning the fields of science, religion, and spirituality.
Here is the film’s trailer –
Making the film changed my life,
Watching it could change yours…
Brian Semple here. Was good to hear from you the other day and wish you the best for reat of walk.
While reading your wonderful blogs and noticed this thing called PGS in the menu so I had a look. You say you are going to be making a film on intuition. Sounds really interesting and wondered if by any chance I could be involved on the editing side or production side.
I believe very much in intuition and try to trust in it as much as possible. I’m also a great believer in that we all meet people or are in certain situations for a reason either to learn or to point us in a certain direction. I try to live my life with this.
Anyway, I could rave on for ages, but if you are looking for an editor, maybe you could keep me in mind.
This is a very relevant film project you are undertaking. The balance or battle between intuition and fear is something that has been in my mind especially lately as whenever life events steer anyone into trouble we re-assess whether we knew beforehand we were supposed to stop and re-assess. Often times I realize I was warned. It’s hard to know, when there has been difficulty, whether the voice within is still the PGS pilot or some terrorist that has commandeered the controls: fear. In several moments in your writings you point out that fear must not be let in, that calm must prevail in every step and observation, in the mind’s dialog. So true. Thanks again for your recorded journey.
Please. .I encourage you with this film as I will be waiting impatiently to watch it. Your blogs have been most informative as I intended to do the same distance walk as you have just completed. ..congratulations, with thanks and regards, Nerida
That’s very kind of you to say, thanks Nerida. We’re financing right now. I’m hoping we can raise the money! Bill
PGS was not so much intuition as it was based upon education and educators’ guidance.
And you know this how?
Thoroughly enjoyed The Way, My Way – thank you for sharing your trek. You made me laugh and feel like I was there at times. I’m researching a 10-12 day Camino trip now for our 25th wedding anniversary in October ’16. My older son and I have discussed a Camino Francis trek in early ’17 after his graduation from college. Your research and pre-movie trailer on PGS is very interesting, we’ve all had that little voice speak to us at times. Not speaking for other firefighters, but we use intuition every time we enter a structure fire where we can’t see through the smoke and darkness. We size up the structure before we go-in noting it’s size, floors, use, occupancy, age, windows/doors, position/direction and history. Also noting the dispatch report, further en-route/on-scene information, past experiences and aid of a thermal imaging camera – but we primarily use our intuition to help blindly guide us through to search for victims and/or the seat of the fire. I look forward to your movie on PGS and again, I enjoyed your book! Jake
Dear Jacob – thank you very much for posting here, and for your kind words. October is a wonderful time for walking the Camino – cool, and not too many crowds. You’ll have a great time. Thank you also for your thoughts on PGS, and in particular, firefighting. There is a well known account of a particular incident where an experienced firefighter used his “intuition” to save a family. It’s detailed in Gary Klein’s book – I think it’s THE POWER OF INTUITION. And also in Malcolm Gladwell’s book, BLINK. Also I think in Professor (and Nobel Laureate) Daniel Kahneman’s book, THINKING FAST AND SLOW.
This though is a particular type of intuition. It’s informed by experience and learning. The kind of intuition I’m exploring in PGS is the type that comes out of nowhere – that isn’t informed by experience, learning, rational thought, or logic. In other words, if your firefighter wasn’t a firefighter, but say a parent intuiting how to get his or her child out of a burning house, and intuitively knows which way to go, then that’s the kind of intuition I’m interested in in my film – not an intuition aided by prior knowledge, no matter how subsumed that might be.
If you like the book can you put a review up on Amazon? It helps…
Thanks – and good luck with your preparations on next year’s Camino. Check in here and let us know how you’re going…
After doing my own camino, I stumbled across your article in the NZ Carers publication.
What a pleasantly surprising find! I can’t wait to see the film.
Thanks Lydia – welcome to the blog!
Yes the film is coming along well. We hope to have it completed later this year.
The NZ Carers Portuguese Camino is all completo – meaning full up!! – and we’re doing that in May. It should be a wonderful experience.
Thank you for getting in touch so quickly.
I considered doing the Portuguese Way this time but now I’m planning for the Via Francigena later this year.
I will keep an eye on the blog for new developments.
I am looking forward eagerly to your film on intuition and wish you the best of success in this important venture.
I am sure you already have, but if you haven’t, you should consider including something on S. Ramanujan, the Indian mathematician of early 20th century. All the marvelous formulas he conjured in his mind, which till today continue to baffle mathematicians around the world by their sheer complexity, he attributes to pure intuition, rather than through a systematic and vigorous series of steps and proofs. The new movie out there on him, “The Man Who Knew Infinity” (casting Jeremy Irons and Dev Patel) is quite worth seeing.
Thanks for this Siva. Pure mathematics at the highest level, which is what this man dealt with, brings to mind intuition, yes. Which is why Einstein was such an advocate of intuition.
Hi Mr Bennett,
a friend of mine in Mudgee brought your film to my attention.
Living by my intuition has been a way of life for me. I published a book last year called Letters To Grace-The Angel Diaries, a journal about my experiences with intuition, or also known as my guardian angel Grace. I am currently writing a novel about the multiple dimensions of the spirit world, which is based on my ‘other wordly’ experiences whilst travelling New Zealand.
What an amazing journey this has been for you! And how wonderful to be sharing it with others.
Hi Monica –
Many thanks for making contact! Your book sounds fascinating. Can I ask, are you Mudgee based? Or elsewhere? We are looking for people to host screenings in their towns or districts. Bill
My cousin’s cousin, Sue Hanson, just pointed out your film to me, and I really look forward to its release. I nearly drowned when I was 14 and, like you, had an extraordinary experience that launched me into searching for an explanation as to what happened. We went some of the same routes. Intuition and its sensory power has been essential in all aspects of my life. I am so glad you have made a film to explore it.
p.s. I live in New Orleans.
I’m reaching out to you because my husband did the Camino in September 2018 and when he came home, he noticed some changes in his ability to process information. In October, 2018, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He wants to write a book about his walk and I happen to be an author so I plan on helping him with that. I came upon your blog by way of an interview blog I recently participated in. I plan on purchasing your book and learning more about your spiritual journey (or maybe how it became one). And this movie sounds wonderful! And maybe just what I need. I believe nothing happens by chance.
