I was about to post something about this very subject but instead I did a search. I don’t think there is anything psychic or supernatural about it, but I am a hardcore believer in women’s intuition. I believe it’s an issue of being in tune to your environment and the people around you rather than a psychic type of thing. Here are just a few examples of how my intuition has served me…
First impressions: I like almost everyone I meet. Sometimes there will be people I meet, and there is something about them that triggers an alarm (for lack of a better word). I may not have any tangible reason to not trust or like them, but I know I can rely on the feeling I’m experiencing. I can almost always tell when someone isn’t being completely honest or is hiding something. People may think I’m crazy, but everytime I have felt this way toward someone, they have always later given me confirmation that I was right about them.
Situational example 1: A family member recently got engaged. I was really happy for them. A few days later we had a family gathering and his fiance was there. When I spoke to his new fiance, I immediately knew they would not be getting married. Everyone else was happy and excited as she was talking about her wedding season and colors and venue, but I KNEW it wasn’t happening. I told my fiance on the way home that there wouldn’t be a wedding for them. Yesterday (about a month and half after their engagement), I was told she moved out, saying she wasn’t ready for such a serious commitment and she needed space.
Situational example 2: About a year ago, my best friend texted me and said “check your facebook.” This was not uncommon because we frequently send texts and facebook messages instead of phone calls. I immediately knew she was pregnant. I read my facebook message and it said, “You are going to be an aunt.” They were not trying to conceive, they had not used any sort of birth control for 5 years and they thought it wasn’t possible for them to conceive for whatever reason. She hadn’t mentioned anything about pregnancy or babies to me before that message.
Situational example 3: A close family member told me he had hired a new secretary. He didn’t say much about her, just mentioned it. I immediately knew he was having an affair. Two years later, his wife confirmed the affair had been going on pretty much since the beginning.
Situational example 4: My fiance went to a bachelor party. He came home the next day and muttered something about people doing stupid things when they are drunk. Before he said that, I never would have expected the bachelor to do anything inapropriate at the party, but as soon as he said it I knew the bachelor had been unfaithful to his future wife and I knew who he had been unfaithful with. My fiance does not like to keep secrets from me and he told me he wanted to tell me something. I told him I didn’t want to hear it because I already knew and I was sad for the future bride. He didn’t understand how I knew. I tried to explain the power of women’s intuition.
Sitautional example 5: I called a close family member to see when they would be arriving for a family gathering. I asked what she was doing. She said, “just sitting in my room with my friend __________.” As far as I knew, she had only dated guys prior to that, but when she said that, I immediately knew this girl was more than a friend. It was confirmed about a month later.
Again, I know a lot of people are skeptical about things like this, and I don’t claim to have any sort of power or anything like that. I believe everything I know intuitively stems from being in tune and picking up on the subtlest of things. Even if I can’t define what exactly it is I’m picking up on. My intuition has served me so well that I don’t doubt it anymore, I embrace it.
