Do you believe it in? I do. In fact, I believe that sometimes a woman’s intuition makes the most accurate predictions… Women are generally emotional creatures, I know my feminist friends will cringe… but it’s true. And it’s precisely for that reason that we are more sensitive to the tingling sensations we get whenever we feel that something may just happen.
What I have a harder time doing is listening to my intuitions. If only I did more often… but I digress.
I’ve had it for about a month now… at least since mid July… feeling IT. The something may just happen kind of feeling.
“Learn to let your intuition—gut instinct—tell you when the food, the relationship, the job isn’t good for you (and conversely, when what you’re doing is just right).” ~Oprah Winfrey
It’s funny, that even though I know that somehow, that deep down, gut feeling is just about always right -I still try to fight it. I don’t want to believe it… especially if it’s contrary to what I think I want/need/believe. Instead, I toss that intuition around in my mind for awhile, bounce it off of a few other ideas, and then when the thought’s all worn out, leave it there to teach it a lesson. I’ll show that pesky intuition… yes I will.
“Cease trying to work everything out with your minds. It will get you nowhere. Live by intuition and inspiration and let your whole life be revelation.” ~Eileen Caddy
I think one of my biggest problems is that I outthink myself too much. And often it’s my undoing. I also think I’m not the only one who does this…. how many times have you said to yourself… “I was going to say/do that!” I think we would all do well to start trusting ourselves a little more and to go with our instincts more than we go against them…. ah… um… yeah.
“Intuition will tell the thinking mind where to look next.” ~Jonas Salk
The inklings have been soooo strong for me lately… that I finally had to act on them.
And so I did…I felt better almost instantly.
Now… to continue practicing what I blog… my gut feeling is telling me I need to get back to homework…and so I shall.
