I have been working on listening to my intuition for over a year now. That little voice in our head that says something is wrong, or that feeling in your gut. I have taken it to another level where I am actually looking for clues, trying to live in the moment and see what has been placed in front of me as opposed to just getting to from point A to point B.
In this new light a number of things have happened. One instance was asking myself if I was making the right decision and walking outside to see a magnificent rainbow. That could be called coincidence but it felt glorious.
Another incident that happened a few months ago was far more profound. I had just left work and I was at a red light waiting to turn left, there was one car ahead of me. The light turned green and he did not move. Now I am not one to lean on the horn and think get moving you bleep bleep, I am more likely to give an uncomfortable beep to say oopsy you are day dreaming and have not noticed the light has changed On this day however, I stopped myself from honking, that little voice said be patient and wait. It seemed like an eternity but my friend ahead finally woke up and started to move…..Then life happened, he just missed being T-boned by a car that ran the red light at what seemed like a very high speed. Had I honked either he or I would have been hit, and when I say hit I mean hard. Had I honked and he had been hit I would have owned that guilt for the rest of my life. Had it been me that was hit, I would have had to have suffered those consequences whatever they were.
I have had a number of these situations over the course of my life and called them coincidences or weird. As time allows or when they come back to memory I hope to journal them or share them. It is something to think about and I would love to hear from others who have encountered similar moments. Times where you know there was something else at work, that side of life that we can not see or touch but know it is there.
