What Do You Believe In? … That You Can’t Prove?

I promised to answer that question and, since I’m taking a break from my heavy workload, now is a great time. When I took time to ponder my response, I came up with multiple responses but I’m going to share the response that first came to my mind. I believe in intuition especially mother’s intuition. There have been many times in my own life when I’ve had some intuition and, more often it seems, intuition tends to be a form of prescience of bad news or an unfortunate incident. I can think of times when I’ve had a bad feeling pertaining to someone and that turned out to be the case. I can think of having a thought about one of my cousins who I hadn’t been in touch with for years. She and I kind of hung out as kids but then went our separate ways as adults. She came to mind out of the blue one day, I had a bit of an image of her in my mind, and a terrible feeling deep in my gut. A week later I learned she had been killed and that happened on the day I thought of her. I remember my  mom telling me of incidences where she had some kind of intuition that I was in danger — she was right each time (once was a bad car accident I was involved in, another was a time of great sadness for me, and another time was a horseback riding accident). So, I do believe in intuition — whether what is being intuited is good or bad.

I can’t write a post without leaving some form of image so here’s a beautiful and healthy rooster. My mom really liked chickens, ducks, and geese and I do too. I love the soft cooing sound they make when they’re content. Enjoy!


What are you doing for your Christmas cards this year? Why not hire a local photographer to have some customized cards made to send to friends and family? It’s definitely not too soon to be making your booking.

Love the image!! And – yes – I have to say that I believe in intuition as well!!!

I strongly believe in intuition as well and have had similar experiences as you’ve related. I also believe that plants have feelings, although most people would think that’s weird.

That rooster looks like he’s about to take charge of your camera; it’s a very cool picture.

yes it is that time of year to get thing about personalized card.

This year I’m going for a summer beach theme, considering Christmas is hot here.

Hasn’t intuition been proven to exist many times? 🙂 I adore chickens and roosters too. I keep telling my husband I’m going to get some someday (though I won’t because we’re away too much).

I believe in intuition, too. Christmas, yes, I do need to think of Christmas, especially if I’m going to go with handmade gifts this year. In recent years I have wanted to do that, but I always let it go too long and then don’t have time. Thank you for the reminder!

I believe in intuition too, though I’ve never quite had a premonition like the ones you speak of.

The light on the rooster is lovely. Lights up his feathers and crown.
