Speaking of my invisible friends, it’s not always the case I understand what they’re saying. I remember a few years ago, I was experimenting with better communicating.
“Please, give me guidance without me always asking first, okay? I might forget to ask when I need it. I might not know, but I want help. In advance. And louder! I want to hear it loud!” This is the kind of thing I was requesting, repeatedly.
I was out running errands, that day, when it came in. Getting into my car, I suddenly heard in my head, “LOCK DOORS! LOCK DOORS!”
“Oh my God. What does ‘LOCK DOORS!’ mean? I keep my car doors locked. Is somebody going to try and carjack me, or what?” It kept up, still loud.
“LOCK DOORS! LOCK DOORS! LOCK DOORS!” Over and over, “LOCK DOORS!”
What door, I wondered, and saw our front door at home. My daughter would be home from school by then, alone. Uhhhh….I called her on the phone.
“Do you have the front door locked?! Are you sure? Make sure. Right now. I don’t know what this is, but I’m hearing to keep the doors locked. Loud! So please go check it.” She did. My family is respectful of me, even if they don’t always see the same magic I do. Still, I didn’t want to overreact to a voice in my head–I hear they lock you up for that–but I’d be a liar if I didn’t admit it was starting to freak me out.
It was confusing. There were no incidents that night–nobody tried to break in, no escaped convicts reported, nothing out of the ordinary. In fact, there was not clue one as to why I’d pick up that signal. I felt a little disappointed, figuring I must have misfired it somehow.
That is, until the next day. My daughter and I were going out, but were delayed because I accidentally locked the keys in the house.
Ohhhhh….locked doors. Okay, that was loud and clear. I just missed it like a big, red brick upside my head. And how funny is it that my locking us out of the house was already set enough in motion I could have been warned about it the day before? That amazes me. All of it does, really. I hope it never stops.
Do you get heads up’s? And do you “get it” when you do?
