Don’t you hate it when you feel the inner tug of a warning signal, go through with the action and find out why the warning was there in the first place?
Although it doesn’t happen as often as it used to, there are still times when I ignore life’s warning signals. For instance, the other day I was taking my usual meditative walk around the block. I was clearing my head and enjoying the cool air as the sun went down. So often I have epiphanies on these walks and this day was no different, except that it was to come from a totally unexpected source.
Many of you know I am a nature lover, especially of birds. So who would be surprised when I found myself in awe of a very alert owl perched overhead as I walked down the sidewalk. I THOUGHT “Hey! It’s my lucky day!”, even though my intuition told me something was… um, different about this particular creature. He was gorgeous and sitting so close to the trail. And he seemed so focused on me, yet eerily so… (and that, my friends… was the warning by the way).
My INTUITION said, turn back woman – this won’t turn out well.
Once again I THOUGHT, “I’ve heard owls in nesting season can be funny about territory, but maybe if I just walk by gently enough he’ll stay put”.
Yeah, that was a big NOPE. As I walked a few feet ahead as briskly as possible, I saw another owl on the ground in front of me, (probably his lucky lady) and before I could even register I was in trouble… BAM!! I receive a swift kick to the head, owl style. My INSTINCT was triggered at that point and I ran faster than I realized I could, all the way home.
I am giggling about this now, and feeling fortunate to have come away from such an incident without any lasting trauma, but at the time I was terrified, and sad! I am a friend to nature, after all – how could this happen to me and WHAT COULD IT MEAN?
After a couple of days of processing time, I realize the meaning is quite simple, yet multi layered at the same time.
Of course number 3 is my favorite part, and the part I will keep sacred in my memory. I am also now more fortified than ever to not play dumb or small when it comes to what I teach, even in the smallest and seemingly harmless situations.
Has something like this happened to you as a result of ignoring your intuition? (Okay, I bet a very small amount of you have been kicked by wild animals)
But in other areas of life… how about that relationship that just didn’t feel right and went on for too long? Or that job you feel stuck in even though your spirit has left the building? What patterns of drama, sadness and anxiety are you dealing with right now that could use an infusion of intuitive wisdom?
My mission is not to just offer it to you, it is to help you find it and mine it from within yourself. Take it from me, having come from a life of disconnection to just a random ignorance attack here and there… every investment of time, focus and energy you can make to find your clarity is worth its weight in diamonds when it helps you transform your life into one of presence and wisdom.
