I have learned to listen to that inner voice

I've had experiences throughout my life that have taught me to listen to that inner voice. That loud whisper and feeling about someone or a situation. This nagging voice can be about something good or something bad. As a young girl I often ignored the feelings and dismissed them because I thought people would think I was weird. What I learned as I got older was my intuition was always right. I strongly believe we all have the divine voice to lead us, if we 'choose' to listen. I look back at some bad situations I got into because I ignored my intuition. My gut was telling me how to handle a situation but I 'chose' to brush it off. These days when I get that 'feeling,' I trust it.

Waking up with anxiety and a bad feeling

I woke up to the sun shining through my bedroom window and hearing the birds chirping. It was great seeing the sun again as it had been cloudy and gloomy a lot lately in Minnesota . Once I got dressed and ready for a relaxing Sunday, I noticed I was feeling extremely anxious. My sister and I walked the dogs and got a few things done around the house. I was looking forward to our plan of taking in lunch at one of or favorite Mongolian barbecue restaurants. By all accounts, I should have been excited for the day but I couldn't shake the feeling of 'gloom and doom.' I kept it to myself because I hoped the feeling would pass as the day went on. By the time Laura and I got on the highway, in route to lunch, my anxiety was at an all time high. I was really jumpy and kept telling sis to watch out for the car up ahead or that she was driving too fast. She calmly and kindly reassured me that my concerns were not warranted. She was not speeding and was quite aware of any car in front of her. She finally asked me if I was alright. I explained to her how I woke up in a state of high anxiety and a feeling that something bad was going to happen today. Like she's done many times in the past, she suggested I ask myself some questions to figure out if it's my history of anxiety, or my 'intuition' telling me something bad is about to happen.


That Gut Feeling is Always Right

Lunch was great but I still couldn't shake the foreboding feeling

We had a wonderful healthy lunch of Mongolian barbecue, but I still couldn't shake the feelings of foreboding. We finished our meal and got back on the highway headed for home. It was a uneventful drive other than some annoying construction. I was glad when we made our way Safely into our peaceful neighborhood. Once we got about a block from our home, we saw police cars lining the street. My mind was whirling with what could be going on. Once we got close to our house we couldn't believe it. The three police cars were lined up right outside our house. Our adrenaline was pumping and panic set in. The rational part of us knew that her children were at their father's house for the week, but of course it's the first thing that came to mind. Next was worry about our two dogs. We parked the car and ran into the house, scared of what we would see. Once inside, there were our two dogs, safe and sound. Confused and scared, we started looking around when the phone rang. It was our neighbor next door...

Trust your intuition because it's probably right

My neighbor Lisa is a dear friend of mine and her son is like our own. She called us right away to inform us that the police were at her house. She must have been watching out her window, waiting for us to pull up. She's been having problems with her teenage son the last year and things came to a head this day. It was sad and painful to watch as Kyle was escorted into a police car and driven away to an agency for runaway youth.

Always listen to your God given gift of intuition. Someday, it may get you out of a bad situation or even save your life.
