Intuition and Computer Bags

Last Thursday I was getting things together to fly to Portland when my intuition nudged me to take the over-sized purse I use for my laptop. No reason as to why came with that nudge. I wasn’t taking a computer, but I dutifully put the bag with everything else. The next morning, I felt just a bit of irritation at having an empty bag to take with me, so I shoved my regular purse inside and headed to the airport.

I spent the weekend helping my daughter pack for her move to Maui. Friends helped move all the furniture and replaceable things she was giving away. Saturday evening just before closing time, we rushed to FedEx and shipped four boxes of personal things that weren’t going to fit in her suitcases. That left Sunday for cleaning and taking a few boxes to a friend’s house for storage. Late that afternoon, my daughter sat on the hardwood floor of her empty apartment organizing her bags for the flight when she realized the purse she’d chosen wasn’t big enough for her laptop – and the only one that was big enough was already on its way to Hawaii via FedEx.

Tears of frustration after a long, exhausting weekend were welling up in her eyes. My intuition had been right again. And the solution had been provided before we even knew what the problem was going to be. She took my bag – and it made me feel like I did when a kiss and a Band-Aid solved all her problems.

The really cool thing is now I feel open to buy a new bag for my computer – something I’ve been wanting to do but kept putting off as non-essential. And my intuition is telling me that’s a very good idea. Although once again, I don’t know why.

  1. What a great story Teresa!!

    There’s not a better feeling as a parent than when you can relieve tears of frustration! Intuition is an amazing thing when we are open to it. So often we have so much chatter going on that we don’t pay attention to our intuition or worse yet,we decide to ignore it.

    Thanks for inspiring us to be in tune with ourselves! :)

    Hi, Danielle! One of my goals with this blog is to help people realize that random thought they ignore is not just their imagination.

  2. Teresa, this is the first time I’ve visited your blog, but definitely won’t be the last!
    It was fascinating to read about how you Trust your intuition ~ something I’m slowly learning to do without questioning myself. Too many times, I’ve not trusted that gut-feeling, only to regret it later. Your story has given me extra impetus to Listen to Myself First!
    Bliss, blessings and thanks,

  3. I think this is a great post because it isn’t talked about enough! We all have intuitions but choose to ignore them. This is why we go through life tired, and stressed out because we make everything harder then it needs to be. Simplify life!

    Isn’t it strange how intuition works, I have been working on listening to my intuition a lot more recently. The other day I was thinking about which route to take to pick my daughter up from dancing class…I was torn between the normal route I would take and this niggling thought in my mind that I should do a different one…..

    I consciously went with my intuition and low and behold when I got to dancing class I overheard one of the parents telling one of the dance tutors that a tree had fallen accross the main road and she had been diverted.

    How strange!!! Intuition is such a powerful tool that we all have and should use more often.
    Thank you for sharing your post,
