We've all got it. Some, at least. Especially if you're a woman. (Which most of you are.)
Most often my intuition comes for the little things throughout the day. Case in point: cooking dinner.
I'm cooking dinner as I type this. My stove is 6 feet away from the computer, so it works. I'm cooking some pasta, and I want it to get done quicker than it is. Even though I'v been trained to never turn the burners to high, I've done that now to get the water to boil faster. It worked. I poured in the pasta and stirred. Stirred it again a few moments later. I wanted it to cook faster (can you tell I'm not on schedule tonight?) so I thought I'd put the lid haphazardly on the pot. I didn't want it on all the way because I knew it would all boil over quickly. But as I was putting the lid on, I thought, Maybe I shouldn't do this it all. I ignored the thought, assuming things would be okay.
4 minutes later as I'm at the computer, I hear the water boil over. Why didn't I listen to my intuition? I thought!!
This of course is not a one time occurance. Many times before walking out of the house, I think, I should grab a diaper and wipes, just in case. I dismiss the thought, thinking I probably won't need it anyway, and I'm in a hurry. (Common thread in the weaving of my life!) Then two hours later, the Hulk's got a stinker and I think, Man!! I should've grabbed that diaper!
My question is: Why do we often ignore our intuition? Or am I the only one who does?
It seems like I think I know better than myself. That doesn't actually make any sense, but I think you know what I mean. And it still doesn't make any sense!! How is it even possible for you to know better than yourself? Am I really that arrogant?
Have you learned to listen to your intuition? Do you think it's the Holy Ghost? Or is it just the voice of experience?
