I had the pleasure recently of presenting a workshop on intuition and my warrior self had to awaken for this one! Over a year ago, I received a woman’s name at another library book conference. She hosts this series monthly at a downtown library. It involves many aspects of spirituality, meditation, intuition, aromatherapy, and more. I was so excited to finally bring more life to this topic.
The date I chose was November 14th. There were others but this one is in my book Spirit and Belief.
That was the last time I saw the Ultimate Warrior on T.V. as part of the Ultimate Maniacs with Randy Savage. Of course I picked this date, how could I not? 😉Well, it took me MUCH longer to get there than expected since tons of traffic congests certain highway exits. Plus, there was a football game that night. Ugh! I really was crunched for time.
When I finally arrived, no parking lot could be seen. Guess libraries that are almost 100 years old only have street parking. Circling around a bit made time pass more quickly as I finally parked in a nearby school lot. I felt like the Ultimate Warrior himself running just to get there! The doors opened and I made it with one minute to spare. 😬
I am not a late person EVER so this was unacceptable to me. Feeling flustered doesn’t do me any good. Once I’d begin, things would move along, right? Somewhat but not so much. This group had little interest in my story of intuition and many just wanted a random checklist. They asked questions such as: “What do you mean about feathers as a sign of following intuition?” “How do you journal?” “What’s a blog?” “Wait, you communicate with someone in spirit?” All questions I wasn’t prepared for or even expecting at all.
I kept my composure and did explain ways to increase intuitive abilities but some just wanted an internet answer that I couldn’t provide. I did my best, shared what works for me, and still remained open to inspiring any way I could. In hindsight, if I had more time I could’ve asked more questions to the group about their expectations that night but it wasn’t meant to be for some. Such a minor challenge compared to many Warrior faced over the years! This event frustrated me for sure but I always like to remain positive. That’s what any warrior must do.
Warrior had so many firsts in his life and this night had many for me. The good aspects ( despite the long drive in traffic) were very exciting. I got to lead a presentation with more present than before, discuss intuition in a new way, and also led a meditation which worked out very well. One man bought my book and wants me to return to discuss being ” a warrior.” That made my night (: I brought along some crystals I love and gave everyone present an angel card to use before meditation. It was just a simple visualization to imagine being in a place you love. I hope it brought them some peace. Such a learning experience for sure…
How do you use your intuition warriors? Do you follow that “gut instinct” like you should. Warrior did and I am too. Sometimes it’s hard to decide what to do but I’ll tell you what I told the group. Intuition is what you FEEL and what your heart tells you. It isn’t the logical mind all the time but the emotions. We do need all three– head, heart, and gut and always that balance everyday. Remember that three count warriors!
Some didn’t like my ideas about intuition but you need to focus your energy on what you’d like to try. It isn’t the same for us all. Taking “A Step Out of Time” allowed me to see people that are still uneducated looking for answers. I hope I helped on their journey as they continue. November 14 is special to me in several ways and now I have a new date in time to remember.
The man who bought my book was so positive. ( and not just for that reason!) He wants to explore this more and agreed with me about intuition. It is not truly found in a book, online, or anywhere else but inside YOU. Nobody can give you the answers but yourself. Tips– yes but you run the show. I sign my books with: “May you always follow your intuition.” That is my wish for you. Without me listening to my heart a few years back, I wouldn’t have these opportunities or be writing to you all now. ~~~ Intuition will come, you just have to listen and FEEL. 💙🙏🏻
