One day I was looking into intuition with a group of people during one of Belsebuub’s courses, and we did a practice with the mantra “O”.
The idea was to see if the mantra meditation would have an enhancing effect on this spiritual faculty, and to see how it can be used in normal everyday activities. We all pronounced the mantra together for a while and then we went about what we had planned to do for the day, trying to see if or how intuition could help us with whatever we were doing.
I was out and about and I remember pulling into a car park of a small shopping center and I was going to go off and start to do what I had planned to do there when I suddenly got a strong feeling to go in a different direction.
I didn’t know the reason I decided to go in this different direction but I had a strong sense to do it. It didn’t feel like a compulsion to do something different like following a whim or something like that, but there was a certain feeling to it that was different, more like a hunch. So I followed the hunch, which brought me to the other side of the car park.
As I wondered what I was to do next in this unfamiliar spot, I noticed a sign giving directions to a shop down the ally of this arcade. I went down the ally and sensed to go to this shop, which was an alternative shop and had different “new age” items in it.
I once again wondered why would I be here and then had another sense to go to a certain section of the shop and I found a selection of posters there.
I opened the selection of posters and browsed through them until I found one which I saw many years before at a friend’s place which depicted a type of astral travel scene. It was in a particular painting style and I had wanted to get this piece of art since the time I saw it but I didn’t remember the name of this artwork/poster and hadn’t been able to find it.
This sense of intuition I experienced that day was strong and directed me to a store which I had never been to before, which I didn’t even know existed, and to walk in there and find a poster that I had been wanting to find for such a long time without any assistance from other people was quite amazing to me.
