It's curious to me how many times I receive the same messages and how often I find that I still don't get it. It's not a question of the message being complicated it's simply that I don't seem to implement it in my life.
One such message is: Listen to your intuition.
Intuition is the most powerful advisor in my life. It's sort of like the chairman of the board. I know there are other board members (like my mind, my experience, my fears, my desires, etc.) but Intuition trumps even Frank Sinatra as being the true chairman. I guess that would kind of make me the CEO of the Tim Taylor Co because of free will bestowed upon me.
I love the quote (and I don't remember who said it) but prayer is me talking to God and intuition is God talking back. The messages tend to be straightforward "Do this" or "Don't do this".
I have too many experiences to count where I hear or even feel a voice saying "Don't do this" and I still do it.
The "Do this" signal acts a little differently. It may seem a little confusing but perhaps the "Do this" signal beeps slowly and I ignore it. As I get closer to doing something I probably shouldn't it's like the "Don't do this" steps in and, like War Games, takes it to Defcon 1 and it's like the emergency broadcast alerts loudly sounding off. I throw on my airport security strength ear muffs, continue to ignore it and prepare myself for another painful life lesson.
And after I make the next mistake, one nice thing by the way is Intuition isn't much into saying to me "I told you so".
In fact intuition is nice in that it seems to have no memory.
But when will I learn? When will I realize that this tidy little mechanism that all of us have and that some of us are in touch with is there to help, really it is.
Someday I'll listen.
