    The Truth

    My Mother never liked her. She was a customer in the bar my parents managed; attractive, well groomed, with good manners. Saturday nights usually included some kind of drunken fracas, but she was never involved – an exemplary patron. My Dad didn’t understand: “She’s no...

    They Are There For A Reason.

    Instincts to me are there to protect us. To help us give ourselves a warning before jumping into a bad idea, a dangerous situation, a risky event. I have always trusted my instincts. If I had wanted to take a class and decided that I would, but when I'm about to choose it...

    Early Warning System

    Better than anything any techno geek can come up with - your body has a multimillion dollar early warning system. It's called gut instinct and when it's tripped: that's how you get the fight or flight response. I didn't always trust me instinct the way I do now. I learned quickly...

    THE Landlady and Her Brother.

    Generally it's not 100% full proof. Today however I was supposed to go and view a room in a houseshare. Before I decided to jump in with getting a flat, I was going to just get a room and take the safe financial option. I decided though that after having my own place and...

    They've Helped

    My instincts are, usually, right. I know when taking my tests, especially in French, my instincts really helped and I was able to keep near the top of the class by going with my instincts. They really do help when learning new languages. Well, they help me anyway!

    Your Inner Most Feelings Are Your Guide

    It's a communication to you on which path to take. Sometimes I look back on the person I use to be and I laugh. In those moments, I was trusting my instincts and following the signs. It took me on a long journey only to discover that what I was seeking was within my midst all...

    Meaning: I won't give out my name,

    The Captain Commands, The Crew Obeys!

    I dunno are these my instincts or my intuition, but I do hear my inner voice, which guides me through life. Sometimes it's just absurd, I try to act rational, but it proves to be wrong. So I decided never to go against my intuition, even if it doesn't make sense. It always knows...

    One of the most hurtful things is

    when a person lies to you and they don't realize that they're harming themselves not just to the other person... In addition to that they keep blaming the other person and don't recognize their own mistakes, it seems that they get their ego boost by blaming or judging the other...

    Strange But True

    Instinct ??

    There are 4 types of person in this world : 1. The person who knows, and knows that he knows. He is wise, so consult him. 2. The person who knows, but doesn't know that he knows. Help him not forget what he knows. 3. The person who knows not, and knows that he knows not. Teach...
