I’ve been trying to be more aware of my intuitive “hits” lately.
Two similar ones in less than two weeks have me wondering what they mean.
I posted this one on Facebook about 10 days ago.
I was about to go into Ft. O. I usually take the back way on narrow roads to go to the bypass. But I had a thought that maybe I should go the other way since it was rainy – and it’s easier to wreck on narrow, wet roads. That’s not a thought I usually have. It’s not as if I don’t drive in the rain on wet roads pretty often. But since I needed to go by the PO, I decided to go the back way, wet roads or not, and go to the bypass and through the battlefield to the PO.
When I made the almost blind left turn on a narrow road not far from here, I noticed a car going really slowly. And when I went around the bend, there was a car in the ditch, almost upside down, with people standing beyond it talking on their cell phones.
So was that my intuition? Had that wreck already happened when I was choosing my route, and I picked up on it somehow? Or had it not happened yet, and I was being warned? I saw those wet roads in my mind’s eye, but I didn’t “see” a wreck. The wreck part was more of a concern, perhaps a feeling.
That was about 10 days ago.
This morning I was going into Ft. O again. I typically take the back roads to the bypass. But as I pulled down my driveway today, something tugged me to the other route.
I say something “tugged.” It was a feeling. I did see that route in my mind’e eye, but this was more a feeling. My thoughts were, “It’s wet from rain again.” And then my thoughts turned to the previous situation that I related above. I thought about wet roads, but I didn’t feel the need to be extra careful.
I drove up my street, no concerns in my head, and made a right turn. Not more than 300 yards down the road I passed a car on the left . . . in the ditch! With two people standing beyond it talking on their cell phones.
So this is TWICE that I’ve gotten an intuitive hit that has taken me on a route past a car on the left in the ditch! The wreck had just happened both times. This time I passed a sheriff’s car not far beyond the wreck, on its way to take care of the situation.
Both times the wreck was within a half mile of my house.
One time it was my usual “back” route. The next time it was the other route. Neither time did I feel worried or anxious.
Both times I was amazed to realize I’d picked up on something.
But . . . what does it mean??
I don’t think I was being protected.
Maybe it was just a heads up?
Whatever it is, I think it’s pretty cool!
And if I get a third time, I’ll be sure to share it here!
