How intuitive are you to the things that are taking place all around you? This past weekend I had a knowing that I was going to have a car accident. I can’t tell you how I knew it or even why I knew it, but I did. I could feel it with everything that is in me.
When I had the accident, I wasn’t surprised at all. I wasn’t even the slightest upset. I was grateful that I was unharmed and that I paid attention to the small still voice that was preparing me for what was to take place. The guy ran right into the back of me as I was sitting at a light waiting for it to turn green.
He got out of his car all animated and was trying to put the pressure on me to not call the police, but to simply exchange information. I remained calm and I was able to do that because I was prepared for what was going to happen in the future.
I believe God gives us warning signs. It’s up to you to pay attention to the sign and to heed the warning. You can be so busy that you are oblivious to what is taking place all around you. Once things play out, you are left wondering how could I have missed the sign. It’s because you were distracted. You weren’t focused. Think about it.
Have you ever wondered what went wrong in your relationship? Have you ever thought about how you could have been doing so well in your career or your business and then all of a sudden things were going downhill? Have you wondered when you and your friends drifted apart or even when you and you kids were at odds? What happened? What caused things to change?
I know I have been there. I have wondered how in the world did I end up here. It’s not a god feeling. Actually, it made me very uneasy. It’s because I got too comfortable and stopped paying attention to what was happening all around me.
Now, I have made a point to be in the moment. I have made it a point to be present. I now pay attention to the signs. How am I feeling? What am I dreaming? What thoughts are going through my head?
You may be thinking to yourself that sounds like a lot. Actually, it isn’t. It does require me to do some things differently. It requires me to live in the moment. To take things in. Now, I’ll be honest. This way of living, which is so rewarding makes me different from a lot of people that I know because I live at a slower pace, a more purposeful space. People call me names and they attempt to insult me. They call me intense. And in a way I am intense. Not in the scary obsessive meaning of intense, but more of a feeler, and a thinker. And I love it. It doesn’t bother me a bit.
Can you imagine decreasing your stress levels, improving your relationships, and being able to get in front of things before they happen? What about not getting upset when things that would normally frustrate you happen? All because you were somewhat prepared. You were paying attention. This can be your life. You can live a life of peace. Not perfection, but peace. Open your eyes and your ears and listen to the voice. Allow it to lead and direct you. Allow it to guide you.
Have you ever known something was going to happen before it did? How did it make you feel?
