People ask me all the time how to trust their intuition (i.e., decisions, hunches, etc). It’s really a life-long practice, performed every day. Our choices determine our steps — but uncertainty also guarantees that we won’t know why we made certain decisions. Nothing is 100%. There are numerous variables but the more we can trust that we have our best interests at heart, the easier the road.
You may remember that I hung out with an owl on the first day of spring. They always bring a message. This one said to watch my back, observe with a 360 view and not let shit slide in my Gemini-fueled dreamworld.
The other morning, my smoothie spilled over the counter and into my stovetop. A total mess and it pissed me off for a long moment. It’s just SO HARD TO BE IN THIS BODY SOMETIMES. As I wiped, an electric shock flew into my left pinkie and up my arm. Not enough to knock me on my ass, but strong enough. The source? A frayed wire near a gas burner. “Thanks for the heads up, Universe”, I said. Sometimes a spilled smoothie points the way.
On my walk today, I had a HUGE nudge to start gathering canned goods, water, iodine tablets — enough for a month. I’m hardly a survivalist; I just hate buying groceries. However, I’ve had this nudge a few times and brushed it off. I hate clutter and the store is a few miles away. However, it was clear that I needed to take this more seriously, though I have NO idea why and it’s not like I feel impending doom (I’d tell you if I did). It’s just a good idea overall and I trust my nudges more than ever.
Your intuition is one of your most valuable jewels. Take it out of the box. Polish it. Wear it every day. Treasure it. And by all means, buy a 6lb can of kidney beans, if you’re so inclined.
