What Do You Think?

Another MyLot writer, @innertalks posted an interesting article about “intuition.” It's definitely worth reading. So, I thought that I would give an experience that I had not too long ago. I think that there is a big difference between your “desire” to do something and your “intuition” not to do something. Last year, I had the desire to go to a SHOE store to look for some summer shoes, since it was early Spring. But, when I came out of Staples, the sky was very black, in the middle of the day, and my “intuition” told me that I had better get home before a bad storm began. As I got onto the Interstate, debris was flying everywhere and I just barely made it through to the next exit. After I got home, I learned that a tornado had touched down in the Staples parking lot, that I had just left and had turned some parked cars upside down, and the Shoe Store that I had been going to go to was badly damaged. So much so, that it was closed for repairs for quite a while. Looking at the black sky sparked my intuition to get home as soon as possible and that choice might have saved my life.

I have learned that when I have a feeling like that to act on it as something bad will surely happen if i don't.

@IreneVincent When I listen to that feeling it has kept me out of a situation.

@Marcyaz Yes, your intuition can keep you out of trouble sometimes. It's just another thing that shows we have been created with this "sixth" sense.

That was an amazing escape it seems. I think under such circumstances where danger was involved, I might have followed my intuition then too. At other times, I do not follow it, but seem to wait for more confirmation. In your case, this would be far too much of a risk for you to have done this. Is there a difference between gut feeling, intuition, and inner knowing? Is one emotional, the other in our minds, and the third in our hearts? Love lives in all three areas however, and love endeavours always to get its message across to you in whatever way it deems will work the best. Sometimes, I think it even tries all methods together at the same time in a great potential emergency situation, like yours was. Did you get three messages here, from your gut, your heart, and your mind's intuition-al nudge, or not, like this in your own amazing experience here?

All three, I think in this case. I'm just happy that I made the right decision and headed home.
