The Bride Wanted To Run (True Story)
I always include this story when teaching classes on Intuition and in my on line learning programs.
Years ago, I had the pleasure of working part time as a high-end wedding photographers assistance. It was fun, as I was paid well and was able to work professionally many super classy weddings. Contributing to numerous special occasions for love and celebration of union between two lives. Most high-powered events are stressful for the bride and the groom and those working them.
The lovely soul I worked for was the best, fun, spiritual, creative and highly intuitive. Who confided in me that on her own wedding day, she was now, a few years later in the process of leaving her husband. Her gut told her right at the altar before she said I do, not to do this, to stop the ceremony and not marry the man, who stood before her. Who by the way, I knew and was a wonderful man. It just was not right and she knew this.
My question to her and this is the common answer I hear when I asked her and others, (yes there were others) why did you go through with it? Answer, I did not have the courage, as we were in Hawaii and all the guest and my family who traveled far, the expense etc. You know the drill.
The purpose of sharing this story. I think you know what I am getting at. By not listening to our intuition, we may save some painful outcome or hurt to another, for a short time. In the long and short run, we hurt our selves the most, thus pushing our inner voice down. Contributing to not trusting or giving voice to our intuition and the truth that is always within us.
