When I had my radio show here in the Twin Cities called Intuitive Living, each week listeners would call in with great intuition stories. There was also a group that we called the “yeah but club”. Those were the listeners that were told to do something intuitively but their head said “yeah but” and did not follow through on the guidance they received and they shared how that experience turned out for them.
One story comes to mind that I’d like to share with you because it’s one of those OMG stories:
It was Christmas time and the topic that night was listening to your intuition when buying Christmas presents. A lady called in to say that she was part of the “Yeah But Club” that week because she was shopping at a Target store and they had one certain kind of Barbie doll there. Her intuition told her to buy it and her head told her intuition “Yeah But” there was no reason to so she left the store without it.
When she got home, she got a call from her sister saying that her little niece really wanted that particular Barbie and they were hard to find and if she ran across one, would she please buy it? She jumped in the car and drove back to the Target but the doll was gone. She said she could have kicked herself all the way home.
The next caller that called in was not a member of the “Yeah But Club.” In fact, she won the prize for best story of the week. She was at a different Target the same day and ran across that Barbie doll. Her inner voice strongly guided her to buy it and she said that although she has all boys and could not find any reason to buy that doll, she knew she had to trust her inner voice so she bought it.
Then she said she finally understood why she was meant to buy that doll and said that the doll was meant for the lady that called before her. They made arrangements to meet at the radio station the next day so that she could give her the doll!
It’s a great reminder that we can only see a small portion of what’s going on in our lives from our limited human perspective but our inner voice can see the whole picture and knows what’s ahead for each of us. That’s why it’s so important to trust what we’re being guided to do whether we understand it or not.
