I remember a moment in college, when I couldn’t get in touch with my parents who were 10 hours away. I felt compelled to call them, despite the fun I was having. I just wouldn’t give up, I knew that it was extremely important, but I didn’t know why.
I finally talked with my parents that weekend, and they had dropped everything to travel to Alabama to care for a dear relative that had suddenly become ill.
Intuition is an instinct, a hunch, a premonition, a gut feeling.
Do you ever get a sensation, an image, or a dream that steers your mind in a direction that you didn’t quite understand?
The telephone rings and you intuitively know who it is. You change your path that you take almost daily, to find out something occurred on that path that you were happy to avoid. You have vivid dreams about questions in your life, and then wake up knowing exactly what to do. You sense that a friend isn’t telling you the “whole” story, or even fudging a bit. You meet someone for the first time, and instinctively know you are going to be great friends.
I have been experiencing this kind of intuition for many years. I make a point to pay attention when I feel something in my gut, or sense something about to change or happen. It is the ability to kind of think, without thinking. It sounds a little crazy, but I believe it is a small gift that must be nurtured.
Intuition honestly helps to solve a portion of my life’s heartache, and on occasion, it can even bring it on. Either way, I am fortunate to have that unique feeling….in my bones.
Jesse Taylor was born in Queensland, Australia and is a singer/songwriter that speaks to me. He has been writing and performing music since he was 16 years old. After studying music and the music business in college, he most recently has decided to pursue music as a career. With the release of his debut single, “In My Bones”, he is off to a fantastic start.
Even though Jesse admits that the lyrics for “In My Bones” was written in around 30 minutes. They are “an expression of something he needed to say in a not-so-upfront manner”. While dozing off to sleep at 2 in the morning, he said, “the melody somehow magically appeared in my head”.
With a simple beat that feels like the pulse of a heartbeat, I love that his vocals enter in, delicately and emotionally. The song builds to a crescendo that mimics the feeling that I associate with my own intuitive side. You know, the “Aha” moment. “In My Bones”, reminds me to trust my inner feelings whether they may warn me of impending danger or provide solace and comfort. A pretty powerful sound, for a debut single. I hope he trusts his gut and brings us more. Music is definitely in his bones.
