I would like to share a couple of stories that highlight how intuition has helped guide me in small ways, not only through big life events, but through everyday happenings. I came to appreciate and gain a deeper understanding of how my intuition works, from Belsebuub’s books and the courses he has written. Since coming across his work, I have become even more attentive to those ‘hunches’, ‘gut feelings’; they act as my internal compass or guide beyond the logical mind.
Whenever I have ‘listened’ or ‘paid attention’ to those intuitive signals they have held me in good stead. If I have neglected to listen, a situation has ended up worse off or more effort has had to go into sorting it out… but, my two stories below will have a happy ending…
A Visit to the Supermarket
It was a typical day, needing to get to the supermarket, to grab a couple of items. I was with my husband. We both entered the store and continued walking towards the isles we needed to grab items from. He kept walking while I got ‘distracted‘.
My attention was drawn to a box amongst the ‘specials items’.
It was an electric frying pan. For some reason, it stood out, as though I had to consider purchasing it. It was the only one left.
I found this feeling odd (I already have an electric frying pan) but took note of it. I knew not to dismiss this inkling, no matter how trivial or irrational it seemed.
I continued into the supermarket to find my husband. I told him about the feeling I was getting. He was a bit confused to start with but then realised that intuition was involved (he too is familiar with Belsebuub’s books and courses on the topic); and how those inklings do not always make sense to the rational mind but if we pay attention to it, the outcome will eventually reveal itself.
I told him I was going back to grab the electric frying pan, he agreed with me. I placed it in a shopping trolley and kept shopping. We got to the check out, my husband and I looked at each other, as we had to pay for the items including the electric frying pan that we did not need. Neither of us hesitated at this point. We simply paid for it and walked out of the store. We figured the answer will reveal itself.
A couple of days later, I was talking with a friend. She and I were organising a trip away. We had been buying items to share for the trip. She had bought an electric frying pan a while back, with the intent of bringing it along on our group trips.
I got to tell her that I found another electric frying pan and had the feeling to buy it, even though I knew she had purchased one and that I already had one too. She then admitted that she no longer had her electric frying pan, she had given it to someone else to use. The small mystery had revealed itself… My inkling now made sense…
Stop the Car…Grab the Camera?
On another occasion, I had a different intuitive experience. One particular day, I decided to pay attention to an intuitive feeling, but it was not straight away… This is what unfolded.
A group of friends had decided to go away for the weekend. We were a convoy of 2 cars. We were to meet more friends at our destination. I loaded my things in the small boot of the car I was travelling in.
As soon as I did that, I got a sense that I should not put my items there. I recognised a ‘warning feeling’ but did not listen to it at this point in time. Instead I pushed my bags deeper into the shallow boot space.
That feeling was still there, but I again chose to ignore it, hoping that by putting my things deeper into the boot, the feeling would go away. I did not listen for the second time.
We all got into our cars to drive away. There were 4 of us in the car I was travelling in. I was in the back seat. As we drove off, that inkling feeling kept at me.
We were to travel along main roads for a short while before getting onto the freeway. Each time we stopped at the traffic lights, I would get the urge to ask my friend to pull over, but I still did not follow through with the feeling. We were approaching the freeway. We had a couple of traffic lights left to go through and then it would be much harder to pull over.
As my friend drove through the final set of lights, that feeling got really strong. I could no longer ignore it. I asked my friend to pull over and to open the boot. He initially did not want to do this but when I told him I had left my water bottle in the boot of the car he pulled over.
Not only did I grab my water bottle, I also grabbed my camera. I thought it strange that I should reach for my camera, but took it with me into the car. That feeling then was no longer edging at me, it seemed to have been satisfied. How odd!!
We were nearing our destination. My friend had to stop behind a car that was turning ahead of us. Our friends stopped behind us too. We were waiting for the car in front to make its turn. Suddenly we hear a loud crashing sound.
Next thing I know our car is jolted forward and the backrest of my seat is pushed into me. The whole boot had been smashed into by the car behind us (our friends) who in turn had been smashed into by a driver trying to change lanes last minute and decided to speed up in the hope he would get past us in time!
We were hit with such force, throwing our bodies and our things around. We all got out of the car a bit startled at what had just happened. We also saw the damage to each of the cars. That’s when I realised that if I had not grabbed my camera when I did, it would have been damaged…
When I reflect upon my life so far, I find many moments when my intuition has been a guide. It is because of my exposure to Belsebuub‘s courses and books that I have cultivated listening to that intuitive sense even further, thus allowing it to guide my life, from the inside out.
