Listening to Your Intuition

I did it again. I could kick myself. 

This spring I ignored my intuition. "I know I shouldn't do this" my heart said. But my mind said, "Go ahead. They need you." It turned out to be a mistake. 

My wife Becky was famous for her intuition. She often saw danger where I couldn't. Like Ronald Reagan (affable, people-person, a bit naive) needed his Nancy (cynical, perceptive, a people-reader), so I needed my Becky. 

Her intuition wasn't infallible, of course. But it was rarely off. She could see through you like an x-ray. 

Trusting your intuition means listening to that quiet inner voice that knows what you need and what actions should (or shouldn't) be taken. I need to trust it more, not less. If that makes me more cynical about people, so be it. But it can be a powerful source of wisdom and peace.
