Do You Listen To Your Inner Voice?

Listen to that little voice inside you.

You know when you're about to turn a corner but you get the feeling that you should go a different direction? Or, when you plan on leaving at a certain time only it seems that maybe later would be better? I've had those situations and found that I made the right choice going with my gut. I had an experience yesterday that proved my intuition, my inner voice, was right on target.

I live on a somewhat busy street. Raising 2 children on this street has proven to be stressful at times. My neighbors have children around the same age and we know to keep an eye out for one another.

My daughter and her friend wanted to ride their scooters down a hill and knew the drill, an adult had to be with them. I was in the middle of "something" and my husband was in the middle of "something" so it wasn't a good time. My daughter gave one last "Come on mom!", and I felt that it was something that I should do. I should stop what I was doing and go watch the girls.

As we were going down the sidewalk of this busy street I saw a car parked on a corner, blocking the path. Strange. A woman was near the car with a very young boy, maybe 3 years old. Trying to figure out what was going on I see this little boy run away from the woman and move closer to the street. I go running toward the little boy and my daughter's friend says "That's my little brother!" What?

I picked up the little boy and asked him his name. He told me and then I asked what he was doing. He said he was going to find his daddy. This little boy was 6 blocks from home, alone, wandering down a busy street. This woman, a guardian angel, saw him and stopped her car to help him. His big sister assured the woman that she was his sister and I told her I knew where they lived and that we would be going there at this very moment. What this poor woman must have been thinking?! I thanked her profusely.

When we arrived at the house it was full of family. When they saw us walk in with the little boy they were confused, they thought he was playing upstairs. They had no idea he was gone.

I'm not judging. That's not my point. Any parent knows that anything can happen at anytime. You can think you have your guard up but that one time, that one time you look the other way is when "it" happens.

My point of this story is that I am so happy I listened to that voice telling me to go with the girls. I had a feeling and I followed it. Who knows what would have happened if all of the pieces hadn't fallen into place the way they did.

Listen to your inner voice!

Have you had an experience using your intuition ?

  3. Sometimes when I'm trying so hard to accomplish something, and I'm blocked, I try to calm down and see that maybe what I wanted wasn't really part of the plan. And often later I see how things all worked out better than the way I had planned it. I agree about the inner voice. Glad you saved that lost little guy.

  5. I have had many moments that have proven intuition is a powerful friend to follow! Good for you to listen...too many times we ignore that voice. We brush it off thinking it's nothing...only to find out it was something...

  7. What a story! Sometimes god whispers, it's up to us to listen.

    Yesterday, on the way to my Mother's, the hubby was driving and I was daydreaming out the window. I had this strange feeling that took my breath away. When I looked up I realized that my hubby was going too fast and didn't realize there was a new stop sign at the intersection ahead of us. I uttered "stop sign, stop sign!" just in time. What made me come back from my mini mental vacation and what if I had kept daydreaming????

  8. How wonderful that you were in the right place at the right time! That is so scary, I am starting to worry about my little guy (even tho he is only 1) but we don't live too far off the road where cars go zooming by at 55 mph or more...time to fence the front yard! I am so glad you listened to your intuition, I need to calm down and do that more often!

  14. Thank goodness you listened!!

    I do listen to my inner voice, and had a situation on Sunday, not as dramatic, but it may have been. We were headed out to EPCOT on Sunday, I left much later than planned, and on the way, saw a pick up truck that had spun out and hit the guard rail, it was a BIG big up and the front end quite damaged, no other vehicles were involved, but WHAT IF we had left when I wanted to instead of taking the time to go back in the house three different times for things I had forgotten and stop for gas.....

  17. You are so right and what a great story! That made my heart start thumpin away. I cant imagine my child wandering off and if god forbid that ever happened I would want someone as caring as you and the other woman to be around.

  18. Wow...that's scary. When my daughter was 2 1/2 she was playing in her room while I was reading/dozing in the next room. She opened the window in her room (they are the kind that go all the way down to the floor), pushed out the screen, and wandered over to the neighbor's house.
    Thank goodness they were home and saw her. Still makes me a little sick to think about it!

  21. Good for you for listening to your sixth sense. I am a huge fan of intuition (and I'm also a huge fan of you, I just don't always have the time to comment).

  22. I always say when you hear that inner voice, that is God speaking. I never question it any more and go with it. I'm so glad you were there to help the little boy get home. When my childern were younger in some sense I used to hate going out because I felt that I was always looking after the kids and my hubs tended to enjoy himself. Now that they are older we still an eye on Manny but he tends to stay with either of his sisters and they dont seem to mind. So glad you were there.
