We all have them, clairvoyant moments. but a lot of us blow them off or don’t listen to or honor them. Well, I had one several days ago that I couldn’t ignore (like the day my son was born).
I have been taking a class that introduces me to a variety of forms of metaphysical energy, such as earth energies and cosmic energies. I am finding the class fascinating and a lot of fun. We do exercises and spend time paying attention to subtle things. We tune into ourselves and each other.
As we were sitting in class, there arose such a clatter that after almost a minute, it became difficult to ignore. It was the huge, industrial heater that keeps the place warm. The place that was originally a warehouse space, now beautifully transformed into a handful of smaller rooms and a larger open area, as office, workshop and class space. You see, when the heater first starts up, and when it shuts down, it makes a racket. Most of the time, this noisy intermediate stage doesn’t last very long. But that morning, the rattle and clatter seemed to go on for quite a while.
As we were sitting with our eyes closed, listening to our teacher, she guided us through various different imageries, and all of a sudden, the words “rubber gasket” popped into my head. Yes, before class we had been standing around discussing what could be wrong with this behemoth heater. But, at this particular moment, I was deep in thought about something far from diagnosing a piece of loud machinery. It was distracting. “Rubber gasket.” There it was again! “Ok,” I thought. “I get it!” “Rubber gasket.”Ok! Enough already! I get it!” Rubber gasket would-not-leave-me-alone!!
Finally, when our teacher paused for a moment, I opened my eyes, barely able to put 2 thoughts together, put a hand half-way up (really not wanting to interrupt everyone’s train of thought), pointed to the heater, pointed to my head, and said, “Rubber gasket will not leave me alone!” “I’m sorry, but the words rubber gasket keep going through my head and they will not leave me alone.” There. I got it out. Phew! Finally the words stopped and we went back to our guided imagery.
After class, I spoke to the teacher about what had happened, and she said I might be right about why the heater is so loud. She’s going to have someone come in and check it out. (And heck ya! I’m curious to see what is found out.)
These moments happen to all of us. Maybe not in such an obvious way. But, if you get a thought or an idea that keeps coming to you, no matter how subtle it is (and most of the time, they are very subtle), pay attention. It’s the little voice in the back of your mind. It’s your higher wisdom whispering (or possibly shouting) to you. As long as it’s not something that feels wrong or very off to you, honor it. That is clairvoyance.
