Ego Overruled! How My Intuition Guided Me To Help A Grieving Sister
Everyone has intuition. Some of us pay attention to it and learn to work with it; others ignore or overrule it. Clients often ask me if my intuition, my psychic ability, is turned on all the time, since I’m a professional intuitive coach, counselor and psychic medium. My answer is “No!” I don’t want to “read people’s minds” while grocery shopping, even though some people assume that I can. To me, that is a boundary violation and intrusion in another’s life. I only share my intuition when asked. Besides, I’m focused on my grocery list and my needs at that time.
However, I will often pray that if I am meant to connect with someone while out and about in the world that I will be open to it and respond. And here’s what happened on my flight to Tampa.
Being in the Right Place at the Right Time To Use My Intuition
My step-father died in Tampa, FL in August. The day before leaving for his funeral I stopped by the library. At the library book sale my intuition caused me to purchase a book by my mentor, Psychic Medium James Van Praagh, as I often purchase extra copies of my favorite books on intuition, psychic mediums and past life regression therapy to share with my clients.
Packing for the trip, I felt compelled to put Van Praagh’s book in my carry on bag, even though I had no intention of reading it on the flight. I wondered why I was doing that.
As I boarded the 7 a.m. Albany, NY to Tampa, FL flight, I made sure to get an aisle seat up front. I also assumed, since the flight was not fully booked, that no one would sit in the middle seat and I could relax and spread out. Taking my seat, I noticed two young children in the seats in front of me. “Uh-oh,” I thought, “I’m going to change my seat in case they are restless.” I turned around to ask a woman three rows back on the opposite side to save me the aisle seat in her row while I gathered my bags. When I went to move, a man took the seat while she was looking out the window!
Just then, a woman walked up to me and said “This seat looks good” as she sat in the middle seat next to me. My little egotistical self was disappointed, as I wanted to guard my territory!
I had purchased a book by a psychic medium spontaneously, unexpectedly put it in my carry on bag, tried to change my airplane seat and was thwarted, and now a “stranger” had taken the middle seat that I wanted to stay empty!
Intuition Wins-Ego Overruled!
What a blessing that my ego was overruled! Within the first five minutes, my seatmate “Janet” shared that she was returning from her brother’s funeral in New York. She was devastated by his death. As she began to weep and share her story with me, I pulled Van Praagh’s book out of my bag and told her that it was for her. She began to read it in flight. Then we continued a deep and meaningful discussion about life and death. She remarked that this book was just what she needed.
Was it a coincidence that we sat together? When you let your heart and intuition overrule your “little self”, the ego that feels so separate, you will be guided to do the right thing. When I returned from my trip I received this e-mail from “Janet”:
“Carol, God put us together on the flight from Albany to Tampa for a reason. We were together at the right time and place. I found that our topics of conversation gave me inner peace. I believe in your passion and commitment as a Psychic Medium. I continue to read and re-read the book that you gave me. It helps to support that my brother’s spirit (soul) is at peace. I will never forget your kindness and hope we can be friends forever.”
Janet and I will be “friends forever.” Our hearts opened to each other in our grief and brought us joy and kinship. Trust your intuition and you will be in the right place at the right time!
