My mum used to say that my nanna was a gypsy and that sometimes she could see things and they often came true. Like the time she said an Indian man was going to cause me great pain-that turned out to be my dentist!
So it was not uncommon for me to have moments of intuition myself that proved true sometimes under incredible odds.
For instance one day I was making a cup of tea and this flash hit me and I saw myself singing on stage - this just about crippled me - I don't sing. Someone once handed me a card on a dance floor and it said "I've seen you dance, if you can sing, call me" - I threw it away!
Well later that morning, I headed to an event where they had a Prize Draw and I put my name in for it. It was held at the old Convention Centre in Sydney and it was full, so more than 900 people were in the the room. I won the draw. Then I got up on stage and had to roll two giant dice, each outcome was represented by a prize that I could win except for the number 4 - that was SING A SONG - well you can guess what happened. I grabbed the mic and said oh no I saw this happening and I just know I'm going to be singing today. Of course I rolled a four had to sing a song. As i happened to know the team running the event they thought it would be a riot and chose the song Like A Virgin for me to sing in front of close to a 1000 people!
Another time that stands out for me is when I fell in love in Canada many many years ago, I said to my now husband Conrad that I was very much in love with him but the only thing that doesn't make sense to me is that i always thought i would marry a James, and I believed very strongly in my intuition.
Without missing a beat he said babe I am a James and he proceeded to whip out his license and prove it to me and yes he was actually named James Conrad but never used the James. I like to use it when he chauffeurs me around, Take me home James I say!! Needless to say I married him shortly after!
I'm not talking about the voice that tells you to eat ice cream and sit on the couch I'm talking about the one that says you should go to that event, or you should submit a proposal for that job or you should write a blog about whats coming up so people get to know you better.
I've found that listening to my intuition does several things, one it gets louder next time and less easy to ignore. Two I feel like I'm helping myself and have faith in my psychic abilities - I truly believe we are all psychic and capable of so much more than we give ourselves credit for. Three it often leads to the perfect connection or piece of information that i was needing at that time.
The other thing I notice is Synchronicities for instance I'd barely heard of Dr Bruce Lipton a week ago, even though he wrote the book the Biology of Belief which should have been devoured by me years ago I'm sure.
His name was mentioned to me at an event I attended last week, then my girlfriend mentioned the title to me then a few days after that a fellow therapist mentioned it to me. So I'm about to buy that and I expect to find something rather profound in it because of the push from the Universe for me to read it.
So if something like that happens to you where several people mention something to you, act on it and expect great things to come of it. We don't get what we deserve we get what we expect.
Where are you placing your expectations and how is that affecting the way in which you show up on a day to day basis?
