Designate each side of the coin for one of your two choices. Flip the coin and cover it with your hand. Now, instead of looking at the coin, think about which result you hoped would be revealed. Most people have a subconscious desire for one decision or another to be chosen and tapping into your intuition can help you overcome decisions that can’t be decided by reason alone.
