I Know What I Know

Do you ever know something with a certainty you don’t understand? I do! There are times when I know something, way deep down… I just know it and I’m not sure how or why, but I do. There are times when I’m not even sure where it came from!

I know it to be true, but as soon as I try to capture it or name it or define it, I get confused! Its like its lost… kind of like when you have to look a little to one side or the other at something to be able to see it because as soon as you look at it head on, it disappears.

This knowing has guided me more times than I know or could count. Many times, in the moment, I will dismiss the knowing as bravado or simply wrong because I can’t figure out how I could know it. But, then, the validation that it was true! That I was right, even though I couldn’t explain it or justify it. Most of the time the validation comes in the form of how things work out or don’t work out, as the case may be.

I learned not to discount this knowing. For that reason. Many people think of this or call it gut instinct or for women, women’s intuition. But even then, there were times when I ignored that knowing.

Validation or confirmation also comes in the form of things falling in to place or going smoothly, without too much effort on part. Funny how that works, right?! There are simply times when I am in a groove or a rhythm that just takes over, I knew what to say in a moment when I didn’t have time to “think” about it and just said it and not only was it right, it was dead on.

I have come to believe that this knowing comes from a higher place… from my higher self, My True Self. The part of me that is working on a much bigger agenda than any daily struggle I might be experiencing, no matter how big I think that daily struggle might be.

For me, it is comforting to know that I know what I’m doing, if I will just listen to it rather than the people around me or society.  Being My True Self and Loving every minute of it!
