Intuition

17 Jul

So far this blog has mostly been quite philosophical / spiritual / having a moral to the story or whatever. It was totally not my intention for it to be that way but I sort of like it. I’ve started noticing things in life that are perfectly appropriate, ironic or divine  – and of course I want to write about them.

So… forgive me. That’s just the way it has worked out up until now. I had hoped for this blog to be a place to post stories about my life and it has turned out to have a focus on things that I have learnt or realised. I think it will be a mixture of both from now on. But enough disclaimer…

Intuition.
Some of you might stop reading now – that’s cool. The purpose of this blog is for me to crap on about whatever I want  – you don’t have to like it 😛

Do I seem to be avoiding the topic?

I overheard a conversation at work yesterday where a group of girls were discussing whether a particular person in a particular scenario was ‘psychic’ or just really good at logically putting pieces of the puzzle together in order to ‘know’ something that didn’t seem possible.
I’m not a fence-sitter but I’m definitely a believer in both being possible.

So finally, my experience:
When I left Prospect I was running a few minutes late to have enough time to get to Lunch with Sienna in Unley. Somehow I just knew that I didn’t need to rush (in fact traffic decided that for me). I had a strong feeling that Sienna wouldn’t be there. Why did I think this?
It started with the feeling, or at least I perceived it that way…. I then began to apply logic to the situation even though I didn’t yet know the outcome:

  • I haven’t spoken to Sien since last Saturday – she could have forgotten
  • There’s no reason for her NOT to be there – Why would I think otherwise?
  • She might think we were meeting at 1 instead of 12 – so she could be an hour late
  • hmmmm
  • I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt & I’ll text her to let her know I’m going to be late

She called me.
She’d forgotten…. what day it was, and thought we were meeting tomorrow. So I was right. I didn’t have to rush. But why did I get that strange feeling on my way there? Logic or intuition?
It’s possible that logic had influenced my initial feeling without me consciously knowing. It’s possible that the feeling came to me another way.

I’m not really sure.
