My Uncanny Women’s Intuition

This is one of those stories that you will either believe or think I am FOS….

I can’t recall EXACTLY when I noticed that I had an uncanny ability to know when some things were going to happen. Now I am no Nostradamus…but sometimes in my own realm of reality I would feel…hmmm…electricity in the air…and then I would just know.

Initially this only happened while at work. In my past…I was an Obstetrician. When on call I would get “vibes”…and was right 90% of the time.

Initially it started out as a joke. I would walk into labor and delivery…and say, “We are going to be BUSY tonight. You don’t have enough nurses on staff.” They would laugh and say sure, and appease me. But, lo and behold, a flood of patients would come it. This happened quite often. It got to the point that the manager of the unit would ask me my “prediction” for the night or weekend. I know it sounds kooky, but is the truth.

Also, on numerous occasions I would get “the feeling” to call the hospital. If I had someone in labor, I would ask the nurse to do me a favor, appease me…and check on my patient because I think I need to come in. I was right EVERY time! It got to the point that when “that feeling” came, I just got in the car and drove over. REALLY WEIRD!!

Then I started noticing that it would occasionally happen at home with family members.

Two events come to mind.

Michelle my niece was our babysitter for the summer. One day I got home at 6pm and it was time for her to leave. It was getting dark with thunderstorms predicted. I got “the feeling” that if she left something BAD was going to happen. It was an OVERWHELMING feeling. I pleaded and beg for her to stay until the storm passed. But, she had a hot date and insisted on leaving. An hour later, I called her at home…NO ANSWER…I called every 30 minutes until it was almost 10pm. Finally she answered the phone and I asked are you alright…hesitantly she said yes. I said I don’t believe you, tell me what happened. She was silent. “Well, she said, you were right. I should have listened to you.” She then went on to tell me how she hit deep water and her car slid off the road into a ditch. Fortunately she was OK, but the car was totaled.


The other distinct memory I had was concerning my youngest son Blake. He was about 5 years old and had gone to the park with his oldest brother and his wife. Elisha (the wife, my DIL) was singing in a mini-concert for her church. They were having this mega picnic. I was at home and got the OVERWHELMING feeling that I needed to go to the park. I told hubby and he said I was crazy. I told him you go with me or I am going by myself. WE HAVE TO BOTH GO NOW!! Well, we arrived at the park as my DIL was running, carrying my son to the car to take him to the hospital. He had fallen off the monkey bars and had knocked the breath out of himself. He fortunately was OK too, but it was very scary for us all. Later I was asked how did I know to come, and I told them the story.

Anyway, I now have RESPECT from my colleagues and work and my family. I no longer have to beg and plead, they just listen to me.

I know this all sounds too weird to be true, but it is true. I have often thought is this just all a coincidence? But it has happened WAY too many times to believe I could “guess” it correctly. As I have gotten older, I have started thinking that maybe that a higher power, the man upstairs is sending me the messages.

So...next post the mystical magical KRAZYDUST...
