One of my goals with this material is imparting the idea that our intuition is always working on our behalf and when we begin paying attention to it, we can navigate our lives in miraculous ways.
Are you paying attention…?
A very interesting thing happened to me and it was powerful reminder of how our intuition functions and whether or not we are willing to trust ourselves and ‘what we know’ to be true in that moment. Intuition just becomes useless chatter unless we are able to act on it in a significant way.
However, I think we often fail to head the message sometimes is because we don’t trust our instincts and on a deeper level, we fear being wrong or looking stupid. And in my case, (and I am not totally alone on this one – Abraham Hicks) a fear of making a fuss and being unreasonable when others don’t believe you.
The other night, I was in a very loud, dark, crowed restaurant with friends. I was showing them pictures on my phone of my recent travels in Southeast Asia. Not inconsequential to this story, a part of the world also well known for pickpockets. In fact, there are signs everywhere you go reminding you to be careful, so being in a constant state of vigilance with my belongings was definitely in my energy.
A long time had passed and out of the corner my eye, far in my peripheral vision, I saw a very quick movement go down, then up again. It was literally just a flash, but when it registered, I declared before even having to look, ‘my phone is gone. I knew just it.
I grabbed my purse and it wasn’t in there. Not believing me, my friend looked through my bag too. I stood up and looked at the chair my purse was on, felt over it, moved it away from the table and even looked under the table. Our other friend looked around too.
I made a little scene (something totally out of character for me). The owner, a very well know restaurateur in town, walked by and I stopped him. I said, ‘my phone has gone missing. I think someone has pick it up off the floor or maybe pick-pocketed it”. He got instantly indignant that he did not have pickpockets in his restaurant, dismissed me and stormed off. I was shocked by his response.
At the same time a busboy seeing the commotion suddenly appeared and started looking too. All of the suddenly he says “is that the phone your looking for”, pointing to it sitting right in the middle of the chair, a very interesting place for it considering it would have had to move on its own to logically be in that spot.
But I didn’t care, me and my phone were reunited again and that was the sweetest feeling. The owner walked by again and stupidly I said “I must have not see it sitting there”, playing it off like I’m some ditz that doesn’t see a phone sitting there as clear as day. I felt embarrassed for making a fuss, even though I knew I was right. He brushed me off again and walked off.
My one friend is still scratching his head because he too witnessed the reappearance of the phone in a place he had look himself, but my non-believing friend still thinks I just didn’t see it there. I had a deep need for the non-believer to believe me and agree with me, but then I realized it doesn’t matter what she thinks…
Because I know what happened…
The guy saw the phone lying on the ground and picked it up and walked away with it. I got an intuitive hit that was clear to me what had happened and by reacting to it, I was able to avoid losing something of great value to me. Even more amazing, the phone was back in my hand in a matter of minutes of realizing it was gone.
This is powerful stuff happening here, even for an authentic psychic.
Truly I think the person who had it was also on high alert and when he saw me making a fuss, he knew what it was about and was there on the scene before it went any further. And I know that had I not reacted the way I did someone right now would be enjoying the benefits of my phone and the very cool case I got in Vietnam and I would be mourning the loss in more ways then one. Most definitely not happy with myself for ignoring my instincts.
The next day I was listening to a new CD from Abraham-Hicks and Esther told a story about how recently after disembarking from a cruise she began feeling anxious about the luggage getting to the right place because there was a lot of chaos going on around them. Everyone dismissed it, telling her not to worry or get in the way of the process.
When they got to the hotel, much to everyone’s surprise except Esther’s, there was an extra bag in the van of some poor person who was now probably frantically looking for it, making a big fuss, accusing the cruise line of losing it. Everyone told her it was okay if she wanted to make a fuss or check all the luggage tags again the next time she felt this way and no one would stop her this time.
I knew that was a message for me too. It’s okay to make a fuss when you know what you know to be true. Don’t let others tell you otherwise. It doesn’t matter what anyone thinks anyway. You have to follow your instincts and don’t be afraid to react for fear of looking stupid.
