Albert Einstein once said “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”

A few weeks ago I was house-sitting for my brother and sister-in-law while they were traveling. I was busily working at my computer one day when I got a sudden urge to go to the front door.

I opened the door and my nephew was standing there – he hadn’t even had a chance to ring the doorbell. He asked, jokingly, “Are you psychic?” I said, “Yes, something like that.”

Perhaps that was a trivial event. But it clearly demonstrated to me I need to always listen to my intuition. I do most of the time, but when I don’t I usually regret it.

On another not-so-trivial occasion many years ago, I was very glad I listened to my intuition. I was stopped at a red light while driving in a busy Washington, DC suburb. Just as the light turned green, a car on the intersecting road raced through what was a red light on his side.

Naturally, I stopped and looked around carefully. I saw no other cars coming and was partway into the intersection when a clear voice, seemingly out of nowhere, said “Stop! The next guy is going to do the same thing.”

Sure enough, another car ran the red light. If I’d been just a few feet farther he would have hit my car broadside, with who knows what consequences.

That was long ago, but I learned a lesson I’ve never forgotten. As my spirit guides often say, always trust your inner guidance, no matter how trivial the matter at hand may seem. You will never be led astray.
