"When you know, you know."
I never understood this quote, until I understood it.
Nine years ago, I stood in the doorway of the house in which I currently live, and declared, "I'm home," without ever stepping foot inside.
One month later, I moved in.
Two and a half years ago, I visited my friend at her studio for a massage. Afterwards, she asked if I wanted to see the only available space on the property (which had just been listed for rent). I didn't know why I wanted to see it, until I knew.
I paused in the doorway, groggy from body work and stated, "This is my yoga studio." A week later, I signed a lease.
I know when I have arrived home. We all do. There is a clear difference between impulse and intuition. Impulsive action leads to a stampede of second guessing, the feeling of being out in the cold, confused and indecisive. The aftershocks of impulse may take a while to appear, but they always do. Intuitive action leads us home, without a doubt in our minds, we are safe-inside of ourselves....
