Yesterday, I had a gentle nudge from the universe to take my normal route backwards while walking the dogs. These gentle nudges come in the form of urges or sudden inspiration to do something, go somewhere, talk to someone, etc.
We got a good ways into the walk, when all of a sudden an albino squirrel jumped out in front us on the sidewalk. There was only one other time that I have seen one. It was like a little gift, a piece of magic and wonder given just to me and my dogs. There was no one else around, just us and the squirrel.
It’s little things like that that give me the courage to trust my intuition. I have recognized lately how much courage it takes to follow these inspirations. I have always been a thinker, someone who analyzes everything. I depend on my logic and my mind to understand my world, but all that is based on my limited experience.
However, tapping into my intuition gives me far greater knowledge and universal wisdom, but only if I allow that. That small little squirrel is helping to teach me listen to and trust, and for that I am grateful.
I encourage you to follow those nudges. Surrender control of the outcome, and allow the universe to bring you something more than what you can imagine. I definitely didn’t imagine seeing a white squirrel when I started walking the dogs yesterday.
