Love Notes From Intuition

The earliest intuitive flash I remember was when I was around twelve years old. I remember it distinctly even now, decades later.

We were taking a drive in the car. I was in the back seat behind dad. I was looking out the window watching the world go by, and mom and dad talked about funny things they’d seen. For some reason, I tuned in to the conversation right as dad was saying, “One of the funniest things I’ve ever seen…”.

When he said those words, a picture formed in my mind’s eye of him laughing so hard he coughed when I passed through the living room as he was watching a movie on TV some time earlier. I don’t know now if it was days or months earlier. When that picture flashed in my mind’s eye though, I, for some reason, interrupted and finished his sentence by saying, “…was when Indiana pulled his gun out and shot the ninja who was swinging his sword around.”

My dad looked me directly in the eye from the rearview mirror and he asked how I knew he was going to say that. He looked astounded. I shrugged my shoulders and said that I remembered him laughing at it when he watched it on TV. He and mom shared a look and everyone got quiet for a while after that. It didn’t seem like a big deal to me because it all seemed to make sense but me chiming in so loud and certain was out of character and thinking about it now it is remarkable that I was right about what he was going to say.

The most remarkable thing about that intuitive flash at that moment I received it was my dad’s reaction. It was priceless. It was a glorious moment my dad and I shared with curiosity and grins and one we relived a handful of times over the years.

The most miraculous thing about it now is that it still lives so fresh in my mind all these years later, decades after my father’s death when he was 48 years old. Even now, I can have his grin again anytime I want to. A precious gift from my intuition to me to be sure.

Consider your intuition as fun little notes from your higher self who loves you and is always supporting you. The ongoing development of your ability to trust your intuition is the most essential investment in your own self-development that you can make.
