Did Intuition Help Me Here?

By · July 3, 2009 · Filed in intuition

Today was an eventful day. I decided to do some yard work¬†after I finished gathering up the recycling. I had some tree trimming to do and also planned to clean up the ‘presents’ that my faithful four-legged friend leaves behind. Did I mention that I am grateful he is not a very large dog?

When I realized that I needed a plastic bag to pick up the presents I remembered that I had just emptied them into the recycle bin. I went to the back of the alley, opened the bin and routed around for a plastic bag. We don’t get too many bags anymore, ever since investing in some cotton and nylon bags.

I found one bag with no holes and a handle that could be used for storage. All of a sudden my subconscious flashed me a picture of a chapters bag. I remember getting a bag like that recently from a friend of mine with a book inside as a gift. I searched around the recycle bin and retrieved the chapters bag.

To my surprise the bag was not empty! No I didn’t throw out my book if that is what you are thinking! I did spot a small little pin that I got recently as the “Past President” of my local Toastmasters club. My 1-year term was up at the end of June and as a parting gift I had received a pin that I put in this chapters bag.

I must have forgotten about it when I emptied the bag earlier and mistakenly put it in the recycle bin while the pin was still in there. I would have lost that special commemorative pin forever, and probably wondering where I lost it. But instead I was rewarded at the right time with the flash of the chapters bag in my mind.

If that picture didn’t come up, and I didn’t think “that small chapters bag would be perfect to use”, then I probably would have used one of the other plastic bags in the bin. Because of the picture I was magnetized to exploring further and putting in the effort to find it. You can imagine the smile on my face after I found it.

Later I was basking outside in the sunshine and appreciating my good fortunes. I suddenly got an urge to phone a friend that I haven’t seen or spoke to for a few months. Unfortunately I didn’t have my phone on me so I couldn’t honour this inclination. When I went inside I noticed that he had just called me moments ago.

Was this another coincidence or another example of how subtle intuition can be? My friend had phoned to invite me over for a Canada Day celebration. Unfortunately we couldn’t make it over because we already had plans, but of course you realize that my attendance was not the point of this story.

The point of the story is that you can have some pretty interesting, enlightening and rewarding experiences if you start to listen to your intuition and follow your instinct more. Intuition helps you figure out problems, guides you to know who to trust, senses danger, and alerts you about the things you believe are important.

Some call intuition your sixth sense. It is a powerful guide to help us interpret and understand the world we live in. If you are serious about your best interests, then it is in your best interest to get in touch with your subconscious. The best part about it is that anybody can get started and become good with practice.

Life is amazing. Life is meant to be lived amazing. Go out and experience synchronicity, divine-timing and see the perfection in everything. Practice listening to your heart, following your gut and keep finding out more about yourself. You are more powerful than you realize!

Russell, Great examples of synchronicity and flashes of insight we sometimes dismiss. I am so grateful for this in my life – even your post has served as reminder to trust my instincts more.

Thanks for your post. I am a big believer in intuition. Sometimes though I have to wonder if my intuition is really just based on how my brain stores items. For example, all plastic bags might be linked together in memory. I am not trying to dismiss your intuition but instead share a line of questioning that I have.
