Confession: sometimes, it takes me a (very) long time to make a decision. Very. This is a trait passed down from people who shall remain nameless. It is also a trait that I have passed on to people who shall remain nameless.
Sometimes, I just want to know what all of my options are. I do understand that this can be maddening to those involved with my process, but that doesn't speed it up (at all). Other times, I know, by the feel of my gut, that I am not aligned with the options at hand so I keep looking without settling. I don't really think that's a bad thing.
When I rely on my intuition to help me make decisions, things move along much more quickly. Sometimes, though, I still need to remember to do that. It is far too easy to fall into the headspace trap—that ittybitty place where all things are over-thought.
Last Saturday I stopped in at Lenscrafters to pick up a small gift for a friend. I was looking around to see if they had what I needed and I immediately spotted the pair of magenta glasses pictured above. I have been looking for a new pair of glasses for about five months to no avail, but these...
I tried them on and loved them immediately. I stood in the mirror looking at myself thinking, "Could this really be this easy? Maybe I should look at other frames." I found two more pairs of red frames in two seconds and all three were perfect.
Then I started putting them on and taking them off repeatedly. I could no longer decide, even though I really did decide before I decided to not decide. While I stood there, putting them on and taking them off I started to zone into the conversation behind me.
Two salespeople were talking to a man. They were having a discussion about the weather. I noticed that he was loud and friendly.
I put one of the three pairs back and then walked back to the mirror. I said, in my head, which one should I pick? And right then the man said, "Is he still back there trying to decide? I hope he chooses the MAGENTA glasses. They looked so good on him. Yes, definitely the MAGENTA."
This might sound crazy but, that was my answer. I returned the red pair to the perch and brought the magenta glasses to a salesperson. And hour later, I wore them home, thanking my guides the whole way.
There are a few different ways that intuition streams through me the strongest and sound is definitely one of those ways. In the land of labels, this is called clairaudience. It means clear hearing and refers to receiving messages mentally or actually through your ears. When you begin to actively develop your intuition you are really developing your presence and awareness to all the energy around you which is sometimes extra-sensory and sometimes not. So this man, randomly spewing those words, which were aligned with my question to the Universe? Perfection.
I think we can always find the answers we need, big or small, just by tuning into life and by choosing magenta. Because sometimes when you want to see clearly, you need to listen closely.
