No, not from your loved ones, but those unexplainable inner voices – often called premonitions – cautioning you before you go somewhere or do something. Some studies claim that folks who have premonitions about the simplest or silliest things in daily life, could be on the way to developing psychic abilities. Most advise listening to these inner self messages.
If ONLY I had done that today!
Here’s why – heading to the recycle center, I stopped at the post office for our mail (no street delivery in our part of town) and decided to separate the “junk” from the “important” mail, placing each in a white envelope. I heard a warning voice, “don’t throw out the wrong envelope.”
Off to recycling, then to an appointment and a thought to check the “important” mail envelope, YIKES it was the “junk” envelope! Luckily, the recycling center was less than a 5-minute return trip, although I might have made it in 3 minutes.
After explaining my dilemma to the recycling attendant, he handed me a long grabber pole and wished me luck – LOTS of luck.
What was in the envelope? Bills, end of year statements, new insurance cards – items which could be replaced but not without
some MUCH frustration.
Basking in my good fortune (and saying a
few many prayers of thanks), I went to the local CVS retail store to pick up cough suppressant for Grenville (he’s feeling better, but still coughing). A sale advertised “buy one, get one half-price” so I did and was going to toss the receipt. But, “something” advised keeping it until I got home. Too bad it didn’t advise me to check it too !
WHY? both had rang up full price.
So, the next time that nagging voice comes around, I’m going to listen to it the first time !
