A Few Experiences with Intuition

Experience submitted by Ella Klyashitsky

I had been interested in developing psychic faculties before I came across Belsebuub’s practices and exercises, so I was keen to try out the mantras that he gave to temporarily stimulate these higher abilities. I was especially drawn to developing intuition.

A few experiences stand out that showed me how intuition feels and works.

Intuitive Feeling at Work

At one point, when I was first getting acquainted with the spiritual practices given by Belsebuub on a course he had on Self-Knowledge, I was working in a cafe in my neighborhood.

At one point I remember standing behind the counter looking around and suddenly a strong image of a person came to mind, and a feeling of knowing exactly where they were. I’d built up some negativity with this person and had wanted to see them to say sorry but had no way of contacting them, though they lived in my neighborhood, so had just hoped I’d bump into them.

At this point I was filled with a certainty that they’d be at this small supermarket nearby. I asked my manager if they needed anything from the shop, which they sometimes did, and they thought of something so I offered to go.

It was only a few minutes’ walk to the shop, and during that time I remember battling with my mind telling me how silly I was being, and being worried that I was acting a bit ‘crazily’, but something urged me on. I got to the shop, went inside and walked straight up to the person I had suddenly thought of – they were by the entrance looking at the papers as though they were waiting for me.

They were surprised to see me, but I immediately felt a warmth from them, like they were also looking to overcome the tension between us, and were ready to. We both made a few apologies and even laughed a bit together at how stupid it was to fall out, and said goodbye. I left quite elated.

It was great to feel that I’d been correct in understanding the intuitive pull to that place at that time, and also felt grateful that I’d been given the chance to mend something that was a source of negativity in my life.

Locating Friends

One more practical experience with intuition was a couple of years later, when I was meeting some other people who were also interested in Belsebuub’s work.

I hadn’t met them in person before but had spoken to them online and had seen pictures so I knew what they looked like roughly. I was due to meet them outside a large museum in the center of a big city at a certain time. I’d arrived there early so decided to see if I could find them instead.

I entered the museum with conflicting feelings. One part of me said, ‘you’ll never find them, it’s massive and there are so many people’, another part of me was keen to try, knowing I had ‘nothing to lose’ and that it was the perfect set up for experimenting with how intuition felt.

So I started walking and let myself just move, trying very much not to think about it. When I would come to a junction, I would either distinctly feel which way to go, or I would face one way and then the other and ask inwardly, at the same time trying to sense anything that might be an indication.

What was interesting was that I actually did feel a response to my questioning within my body, not within my mind. One direction pulled me, the other repelled. It wasn’t long before I found them – I just walked into a room and there they were. They were surprised to see me, and I was able to share my story about how I used intuition to find them!

Finding the Perfect Spot

Another experience is harder to describe. It involves glimpsing intuition working between my husband and I. On our honeymoon we went hiking in a mountain range. We would walk during the day and find a place to camp in the evening. Often as the time approached that we should start looking for a place to pitch our tent we would get caught in anxieties and disagreements.

What I started to see was that any time one of us didn’t like the look of a potential camp spot, it was not only better for us emotionally not to push an opinion, but that was the only way we could be actually find an ideal spot.

One evening I wanted to stop, but he didn’t. I could feel I was acting from an emotion, so I said OK. Then he wanted to stop, but I really didn’t like the feel of the place, so he said OK.

After a few times like this we arrived to a really perfect spot – an old fortress on the top of a hill with amazing views. This pattern repeated a few times on the trip, until we really understood that the only way we could let intuition exist in our combined decisions was for both of us to avoid pushing our opinion if the other didn’t agree.

  • Thanks Ella for the wonderful experiences! I can very much relate to the second experience with the body as a guide and not the mind.

    One time I was doing some volunteer work putting up posters. Normally I am very rational with where to go, but this time, on a hunch I went to another place. I took the metro and got to the part of the city. It was at least a twenty minute walk to where I need to go. I made an effort to listen to my body where to go. As I continued turn after turn, I could also perceive the way I felt to go. After some turns like this I found myself across the street from a friend. We were both very surprised to see each other.

    I do not know of why I was led there, only that the experience has stayed with me for many years. I do not know if it had any impact on my friend.

    • That sounds like a good example of intuition Aleks! It makes me wonder why you felt this pull that seemed to take you to your friend. Was it simply to experience intuition or were you somehow ‘bonded’ in some way?

  • Interesting experiences with intuition Ella!
    I also particularly like the example from your honeymoon – you gained some very important insight of how our own actions contribute to the flow of help and guidance that we are constantly being given.
    I wish you all the best for your further search in this matter.

  • Thanks for sharing those examples, Ella!
    They really put intuition to the test. Reading your experiences, especially the first two, due to their extremely precise nature, was very profound. I’m really left with a sense of wonder. Those were very powerful intuitive experiences. Wow.

    • Hey Mike,

      Yes it can be really helpful to have these ‘precise’ experiences with higher faculties, as they can prove their existence beyond all doubt. It’s all too easy to be able to rationalise away the more subtle experiences, or those more related to the inner world of emotions and feelings.

  • Very lovely stories Ella, thanks for sharing. I particularly like the insight you gained on your honeymoon regarding opinion pushing, and how you were able to grasp the sensitivities of intuition as a result.

  • Had a ‘funny’ thought today while eating breakfast which said “I can make it to that next bus if I’m quick”. This made no sense as I always take a different mode of transportation for my commute. I debated it in my head for some moments, but it was just such a far fetch that I was like this is nonsense.

    Twenty minutes later I walk down and look at my tire, which was absolutely fine the day before, and it had a big bulge and as soon as I moved it, it burst!

    So bus it is :)…. Though with about an hours delay.

  • Very interesting little stories Ella. Thanks for sharing. If our monkey-mind didn’t overcomplicate things at every chance, I feel, our life would be much more “magical”.

  • I love this Ella. Really inspiring to read. And how beautiful that you were able to meet that person in that shop to clear the air between the two of you. It’s very magical isn’t it, to be guided like that. And also beautiful that you chose to follow that guidance when it’s so easy to listen to what our mind is telling us. I find that so many times I feel I should bring something to an event, or pick something up at the shop that’s not on my list, but my mind tells me not to. And then later I realize that I should have listened to that gut feeling or heart feeling. I would like to keep intuition in mind more often, in the little things, to practice following it. To follow my heart first of all. And to trust what it’s saying.

  • These are nice examples of everyday intuition Ella. Thanks for sharing them. The first case must have been particularly rewarding and it’s good that you were able to follow your intuition in that case and resolve the conflict with your friend.

    The museum example reminded me of when I used to go to festivals years ago and always seemed to bump into my other friends, despite not travelling with them or arranging to meet in a specific location. It was the time when only city bankers had mobile phones and some of the meetings were quite surprising, as there were thousands of other people on the site.

    On one occasion, a group of friends and I travelled later than our other friends and pitched a tent late at night. Then the following morning, a friend from the other group happened to poke his head around a gap in a hedge, along quite a long walkway, right next to where we were camped!

    The second occasion seemed even more coincidental, as my friends and I arrived late in the evening again and were invited to sit around a campfire with some other festival goers. After sitting there for a while, it turned out that we’d actually stopped right in front of where our other friends were camped! It seemed quite extraordinary, as we had no idea that they were camped there and the site was so large.

    • “It was a time when only bankers had mobile phones…” haha 🙂 Times have certainly changed so quickly in that regard.

      Interesting coincidences you mention Michael.

  • Hi Ella,
    I really liked those examples you wrote about, and how they simply illustrated the many benefits of developing and nurturing intuition. How it helped you to mend a relationship by helping you to know and feel where to meet up with your friend, and how it helped you to locate a group of people in a vast places with many, many possibilities.
    But I also really liked the point you made toward the end, how it helped you see and understand the need for the respect of free will, and not pushing decision/opinions onto someone, just by having that respect of intuition toward each other, and without making it non-sensical too – that was really heartwarming.

    • I found the same thing, Geraldine! Ella, it was very nice reading how you managed to respect each other’s wishes and at the same time leave room for intuition to come out you to make better choices in our relationships and daily life. Imagine always living life mechanically by going along with those same ol’ reactions and responses. Instead, you managed to break them in your examples and make something unexpected happen. How blessed we are that through intuition we can follow divine guidance.

  • Those are all very nice examples of the magic workings of intuition Ella, thank you for sharing! The first one in particular sounds like a very special experience – I especially liked what you said about having a feeling that the person was almost waiting for you in that supermarket, while looking at some papers. What a great circumstance arranged for both of you!
