A friend of mine has been trying to get pregnant. She’s been trying to get pregnant for a long time. I saw her a week or so ago at an event, and as I walked up to her, a small voice whispered “she’s pregnant”. I was pretty sure it wasn’t my brain concocting that. Just to be safe, I didn’t say a word.
We met for coffee the next day, and in the middle of our time together, she told me that she thought she might be pregnant. “I think you might be pregnant, too,” I said. I told her what happened, and we both got goosebumps. We left it at ‘time will tell’, but I was hopeful that my intuition and hers were dead on.
I practice using my intuition. For so much of my life, I ignored my gut and looked for data or proof that things were so before I believed them. The first time I moved to Michigan, I ended up sharing my condo with a medium, and she taught me to trust my intuition. First, she had to convince me that I had intuition, and then she showed me ways to practice using it. It’s like a muscle. If you ask for guidance and then follow it, your intuition will grow and become stronger and more resilient.
Now when I get the feeling that I need to stop somewhere, I stop. If I’ve lost something, I ask my guide to help me find it. And if my gut tells me to get the hell out of somewhere, I high-tail it. There are times that I’ve been unsure if my gut was really telling me something, but every single time I ‘wait and see’ I discover that my intuition was dead on. It’s been so reliable I rarely ever ignore it anymore.
When I travel I don’t like to have a detailed itinerary. I’ve found that if I just go in a general direction, great adventures show up. I meet interesting people who point me to a spot I would have never found. And if something presents itself to me twice I know that the Universe is urging me to follow that path. My intuition is a small voice in my right ear, or I find it in the voice of another person. If there is danger or toxicity, my gut will clench. That one is hard because of my past issues with abuse. I ignored it so often that I have to remind myself that I can trust it. It has saved me many times.
My friend phoned me last week to tell me that she was in the very early stages, but she is pregnant. They don’t want to tell anyone until it’s a little more solid, but she wanted me to know since I had already predicted it. I pray that this one will stick around until she can see its beautiful face.
I pulled the Guidance card tonight from my Osho Zen Tarot deck. It reminded me that I don’t need a huge light to light my way. In a dark room a candle puts off enough light to see the door. We don’t have to ask where the door is before we leave. We merely walk out of it.
