Whether it’s keeping your lights on or saving a life – Intuition is a tool we cannot afford to be without

Just as I was about to sit down to write about a most miraculous account I’d recently learned of – the story of a Saratoga Springs, Utah woman who saved her husband from being killed by a truck that had fallen on him based on an intuitive hunch –  I got a ring at the doorbell.

It was the utility company getting ready to shut down our power! Immediately I knew that had I not followed my own hunch, we would have been left literally in the dark!

When I answered the door, all I could do was say to myself “I knew it!” – After paying the utility bill the previous day, something told me to take the customer service representative’s name and write it down on the bill and keep it on the kitchen table in plain sight, because I had a feeling I’d be needing it the next day!

Alas, acting on my hunch served me well. Of course, after I showed her the paid bill, the very nice utility representative complied and our service was not interrupted. After I calmed down a little bit, I told the utility rep that I had literally been writing an article about how acting on intuition saved a man’s life! Granted having the power turned off for us would have been no life or death matter, and yet this little incident clearly illustrates how intuition can be harnessed with a broad range of applications.

In my recent interview with Intuition Magazine’s founder and author of Spiritual Telepathy, Colleen Mauro, we discussed the different levels of intuition or instinct and the myriad ways that this “sixth sense” can be used and how it works with other forms of “non-local communication.”

Was it prayer or telepathy that brought Nicole home?

In the case of Nicole Mayhew, the woman from Saratoga Springs who acted on her intuition, she said she’d gotten a feeling while at work on a Monday morning, that she needed to get home quickly to check on her husband. When she arrived, she discovered that he’d been pinned underneath his truck he’d been working on in the garage. But the feeling that told her to come home seemed to be triggered by a direct request. During the time her husband Scott was pinned underneath the vehicle, he’d been praying for Nicole to come home and find him so he could be saved.

There was a lot of pain. I felt the car crushing me,” he said. “I just knew if I hung on long enough, my prayers would be answered and she would know to come home, said Scott, 43.

Call it prayer or telepathy, regardless of the names, something powerful happened that somehow created a link that was made between Nicole and Scott that came to Nicole in the form of a powerful intuitive hunch.

Whether we follow our intuition in order to keep the lights on or to prevent the lights from going out entirely through a tragic event, what matters is  knowing that intuition is a tool that no one can afford to be without!
