As a child, I sensed most of the adults wouldn't understand my questions or line of thoughts, so I kept to myself and observed them. I didn't quite follow the societal norms and didn't care much to engage in polite talk. I was mostly immersed in my mind and my books. This behavior developed my inner perception as I constantly analyzed and reviewed my emotions and ideas silently. Children are a great deal less inhibited in their perception of their surroundings. I remember feeling an aversion toward certain people, who would be all smiles when approaching me. While the auras of others who appeared to be reserved were appealing to me. I still can pick up on vibrations and with life's experience I can attest that my intuition in sensing the energies in a room has never failed me. My best friend was reminding me a few weeks ago that in our 25+ years of being very close, never have I expressed a hunch regarding a person or group of people that didn't turn out to be accurate. This wasn't suspicion on my behalf. It was that sentiment to know before knowing. It's a certain lucidity of my soul guiding me. For decades, I disregarded my gut instinct because, while growing up, I had heard over and over that I had trust issues and should not be afraid of people. In truth, I wasn't afraid. I still am not. But what my aunts asserted sounded plausible: I shouldn't be gullible with what other people said to me. They meant to protect me from young boys as I was turning 12 and would be leaving for Europe without my parents. And for more than a decade, I was apprehensive to let any newly met male get closer. My heart was skeptical of my demeanor and I always felt it knew where I should go and what I should do. It was my intellect that wanted to control my intuition that it deemed fallible. When I learned to quiet my mind, I became less paranoid and opened up to fellow humans more. I was told that I was becoming less "robotic" in my attitude. It was simply me accepting that my intuition would shield me from being harmed. With time, I learned to listen to that inner voice that would always warn me about what would happen. For instance, knowing that my partners would try to steal the company's money and stop at the bank on my way to the airport, with the risk of missing my plane, just to transfer the money to another account they couldn't access. I later learned that the attempt to retrieve my money from the bank as I had envisioned did happen and I was glad I had been able to prevent more financial harm to be done to me. So in the end, when I sometimes disregarded my intuition and made mistakes, which I don't regret as they shaped my personality and contributed to making me the woman I am today, led me to learn valuable lessons, and gave me skills I wouldn't have acquired otherwise...
