I was talking to a guy on a dating app. My initial gut instinct told me that this guy wasn’t right for me. Some of the questions that he asked me raised some flags for me. The one question that worried me was that he had asked me if I had a flat stomach. I told him yes but that raised an internal flag for me.
Yes everybody has a type of person that they like to date. Even I have a type of man that I like to date. Physically this man was my type.
The flag that was raised inside of me, said that if he was concerned about me having a flat stomach, he might be concerned about me having alopecia. I overrode my intuition and continued to talk to the guy. My intuition was telling me to stop talking to this guy.
On the day that we were supposed to meet up for our first date, I was excited. We still hadn’t confirmed a time. I texted and called him and I got nothing. I ended up erasing his number and he had unmatched with me on the dating app. I don’t know why he ghosted me but if I had of listened to my intuition maybe I wouldn’t be in that situation.
Another recent incident where I didn’t listen, cost me some sleep.
I had just gotten home from work and parked the car in the driveway. I travel with bug spray in my car every since i found a big spider in my car. My intuition told me to take the buy spray into the house. I thought to myself that I would do it tomorrow. My room had just been cleaned that day while I was at work.
I get to my room and turn on the light and what do I see on the window but a spider. I internally kicked myself and knew why my intuition had told me to bring in the bug spray. I lean down to take my shoe off to kill the spider and I look up and I don’t see the spider anymore. I examine the window and found it but I couldn’t hit it with my shoe where it had crawled to. I go back to get the bug spray from my car. I sprayed the window but I didn’t see the spider. I had to go to work the next day, so I couldn’t stay up and look for the spider. I tried to sleep but it was hard to not knowing if the spider was still in the room or if it had gotten outside.
I know that if I had of brought the bug spray inside when I first came into my room, I would have been able to spray the spider and kill it. Then I would have been able to sleep knowing that there was no spider in my room.
There was one recent incident where I did listen to my intuition.
I had a logo made by a woman that I found on Fiverr. She gave me four options. Two of them I really loved. Between those two, one of them really stood out to me. I had told her that I wanted a crown in my logo. The logo with the crown was the one that I really liked from the start.
I showed them to my two best friends. I didn’t ask them for an opinion, I was just showing them the pictures because I was really excited. One of them said that she liked the one that I hadn’t chose to use. She said the logo with the crown wasn’t business like and reminded her of a Disney princess. She did acknowledge that I hadn’t asked for her opinion. While I did listen to her opinion, I decided that at the end of the day I had to love my logo. I chose the logo with the crown. Being the Alopecian Empress in my book, requires a crown.
What situation have you been in lately that you heard your intuition speak to you? Did you listen or did you not listen?
I’m still learning to listen.
