You get your intuition back when you make space for it, when you stop the chattering of the rational mind. The rational mind doesn't nourish you. You assume that it gives you the truth, because the rational mind is the golden calf that this culture worships, but this is not true. Rationality squeezes out much that is rich and juicy and fascinating.
There is no prescribed route to follow to arrive at a new idea. You have to make the intuitive leap. But the difference is that once you've made the intuitive leap you have to justify it by filling in the intermediate steps. N my case, it often happens that i have an idea, but then i try to fill in the intermediate steps and find that they don't work, so i have to give it up.
I've spent my whole life doing some things because they were logical and not doing others because they were not. i've seen what happens when people act on intuition, or for illogical reasons. sometimes the results are ludicrous and embarrassing; more often they are simply horrible. but here i am, just the same, behaving like a crackbrained crystal gazer.
There does seem to be a sense in which physics has gone beyond what human intuition can understand. We shouldn't be too surprised about that because we're evolved to understand things that move at a medium pace at a medium scale. We can't cope with the very tiny scale of quantum physics or the very large scale of relativity.
