When your Intuition Speaks
You may often hear that intuitive voice. That doesn’t mean you are going to act on it. In my experience, listening to and acting on that intuition can lead to some incredible experiences. Over time, it builds trust between you and your intuitive mind and that leads to a greater connection and relationship with your self.
My wife and I home educated our son for a few years. We took every opportunity to take him to events in Cambridge that would inspire him and stretch his mind. There are countless events throughout the year in this university city and one such opportunity are the open days at the Royal Observatory when they let the public look through the telescopes. After hours of lectures, games and fun activities, night fell and we were given the choice of two telescopes. We went with the majority and queued to see Saturn- that was definitely what our son wanted to see.
Casting our eyes on Saturn
For 90 minutes we waited. Every person that walked past us on the way out from looking through the telescope had blank, impassive faces. People were starting to leave the queue. Was there nothing to see? Were we wasting our time? My wife, I and grandparents exchanged concerned glances and wondered whether this was an exercise in futility, but our son was undeterred. He knew it was going to be amazing. Even when we could see people looking through the telescope there was no noticeable reaction, just a brief glance and then the long walk back to the exit.
When our turn came, our son mounted the steps and peered down the lens- he was transported!!!! He had never seen anything so cool. Excited, he stepped aside so that we could see and he was right- it was really cool!!!! This white silhouette on a black background was moving slowly across the eye piece. We were looking at Saturn in real time as we moved in position in relation to this planet millions of miles away. Everyone was ecstatic. None of us could stop talking about it in animated tones all the way to the exit and beyond.
We were rewarded for trusting our son’s intuition in spite of the evidence in front of our eyes. It bonded us as a family and strengthened our son’s trust in himself as well as cemented our love and appreciation for nature and this living universe. I will always be grateful to our son for making us stay and trusting his intuition when it would have been all too easy to listen to nay- sayers and ignore the urge to trust in the unknown.
