They’re so fleeting, aren’t they – those tiny feelings we get that we should do something/ say something/ turn down that street? We call them hunches, intuition, funny feelings – and even when we know we should pay them attention, that little self-effacing doubter in our minds tells us not to be daft and insists it was ‘just’ our imagination.
I really do know better than that. I know we create our own reality. I know the hunches help us to do it. I wrote a book about it, for goodness’ sake. Just lately, though, I haven’t been giving the hunches enough attention. My more-aware-self decided, in the nicest way you can imagine, to wake me up a bit.
Last week I’d sent an email to a friend, praising a piece of writing he had done. It was a small enough thing to do. I’d then moved on to concentrate on other things and a day or so had elapsed. Suddenly though – right out of the blue – I could feel that friend thinking about me. It was a very happy, proud feeling. I could ‘see’ a lovely red glow swelling around my friend’s heart. That was when I remembered the email. I took a look to see what I had written, to see if that could be the source of this happy feeling. Just as I did so, a message appeared from the friend. He was asking a question about some detail in my email, proving that he had indeed just seen it as I experienced his feeling of pride.
I’m not much of a gambler, but just occasionally I buy a National Lottery instant online. Bored with the wet weather (and filing my tax return!) I decided to have a bit of light relief. I selected a game and began playing. As I was doing so, I saw a different instant game in my mind. It was the briefest of views – a sudden image of a grid of coloured words.
“Hmm,” I thought, with a grin. “Pity I didn’t play that game instead.”
Well I won my stake money back. Was my life giving me a chance to follow the hunch after all? Normally I’d have been pleased and stopped while I was no worse off. Just this once, though, I decided to find the grid game I’d just ‘seen’ and have a go at it. I had to scan through several of the games until I saw one that looked like my hunch. At last I found it. I started playing. A £20 win came up! Then a bonus game. On the bonus game there was another £20 win!
Not a fortune, perhaps, but an interesting reminder that while such feelings could be termed imagination, they’d be none the worse for that.
Both experiences were very welcome. They served as a reminder that there’s more to each of us than I tend to remember at times. I’m a holographic part of the Cosmos, after all, so it’s hardly surprising that I can pick up on the way I’ve helped a friend to feel about himself, or see things just slightly out of time. And no, before you ask, I don’t have this week’s lottery numbers…!
Without doubt, our skills at creating have been quite awesome. As you might expect when a few trillion holographic parts of God formed into something with tremendous curiosity, drive and intention – not to mention imagination – the creation really went into overdrive. From the wheel to the microprocessor, people have created some pretty amazing new stuff.
