Is your intuitive engine overheating? Meaning, do you know when your intuition is at work, and do you know how to act on it? A lot of us don’t, which is too bad. Responding to an intuitive hit, knowing your intuition well enough to trust it, can literally be a game changer. And maybe save you a few bucks.
As in …
A few weeks ago I was out running errands. I had just put packages in my car when I heard the words, “Engine light. Engine overheating,” and saw the engine light on my dashboard go on. Surprised, I looked at my dashboard and realized I hadn’t even turned my car on yet. Of course, this was my intuition at work. I stopped and checked in with myself: my body was fine, but the incident left me with a deep foreboding.
Now, I was driving over the mountains in a few weeks, heading from Seattle to Ellensburg, WA, to, ironically, talk about using intuition in business at the new chapter of EWomen Network, run by Tara Truax. I decided to get an early oil change with a full service check at the Toyota dealer. Later that afternoon the dealer called: I needed brakes, which we’d been monitoring, but I also needed a water pump. Good thing I went in!
When they explained it later, the only sign of a water pump failure would be a pink spray of coolant fluid under the hood as it started to go. Beyond that, it’s too late. As the service manager said: “Engine light. Engine overheating,” the same words I’d heard the week before.
I laughed. Acting on an intuitive hit had saved my car. If the water pump had blown, I would have lost my engine. And, as the service manager explained, “You would never have made it to Ellensburg, Robyn. It’s too hot, you would have lost your car.”
I was so glad I had listened to my intuition yelling at me that day in car. To clairvoyance (seeing the engine light go on on the dashboard). To clairaudience (hearing the words). To clairsentience (tuning into how I was feeling, and knowing it wasn’t my body that felt bad, it was my intuition IN my body telling me to take care of my car).
Our intuition is real. It’s not wishy-washy, it’s not a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants, leap-into-the-unknown, touchy-feely thing. It’s a real sense that you can learn to use: to make your personal, business, and creative lives soar. I teach it and live by it. It’s real. It means you learn how to use it and how to react to it. Life gets better.
Give yourself the best chance you can in life. Develop your intuition. You’ll leave knowing how to use your intuition in a practical world, the one where listening to it can save your car’s engine, and help you live a vibrant, fulfilling life.
The car you save may be your own. The life you lead better? Yours.
