Gut instinct, universal intelligence, the source, call it what you will, but I really feel I am in touch with it at the moment. This I put down to the fact that I have clambered off the hamster wheel for a bit because I am so distracted by my dad’s illness.
A little more quiet has allowed a tiny bit of something to sneak in through the cracks. Some days I just know there is a greater force guiding me.
Today, I had a meeting at the BBC and felt 100% certain that I was going to bump into somebody for an important reason. When my host took a quick detour to the kitchen area to make a brew, I heard my name being called. It was the husband of a very dear friend who I have been meaning to hook up with for aeons. She has MS and he explained that she is having a really hard time at the moment. My friend needs me and I only found out because of this chance meeting.
I have learnt that it is always best to act on these things. Many years ago, when I was in my early 20s, I just knew which horse was going to win the Grand National and went round telling anybody who’d listen, to back it.
When race day arrived, I woke up and told myself that it was bullshit. Of course I didn’t know who was going to win the Grand National. Why would I? I was just some local hack who knew nothing.
I didn’t watch the race, but found out the result when a slew of people telephoned to thank me for the great tip-off. Some had won a lot of money. ‘How much did you bet?’ they asked. I felt like a right idiot when I confessed that I hadn’t put a single penny on the winning horse. ‘But you sounded so sure,’ they said. And I was. Doh!
Now, I always trust my gut instinct (well most of the time, I’m not perfect!). I am also sure it is possible to hone the skill of tuning into this invisible frequency. I don’t quite know how, but I will find a way.
The universe has SO got my back!
