May Mania ~ Stretch #19

Everyone is aware of their five senses, but we can gather details and information in other ways too. Tap into those weird, almost inexplicable moments in life and write about them.

Think back to a time when you experienced an epiphany, gut instinct, discernment, deja' vu, a premonition, intuition, a spiritual vision or dream, a hallucination, a spiritual nudge to go somewhere or do something or not to, the presence of something good or evil that you couldn't see, hear or feel but just somehow knew was there. Then try and put that experience into words and recapture your feelings about it.

Because we are visceral beings, sometimes our minds and spirits detect or experience things that our obvious, physical senses don't. Like, how many times do you get a sense about someone and then learn later that you were right? Or for whatever reason you go a different way back home, only to learn of a pile-up on your habitual route. Those strange moments are often neglected in fiction. They are also difficult to put into words, so this will be a nice stretch for you. Work it out!

  1. Interesting you bring this up; I was just talking online with a close friend about this very sort of experience. She classified my experience as "paranormal"; looking back over my life, I think I can say emphatically it was spiritual. The subtle tug of a God who would later call me to Himself for good.

    Fun stuff though. Describing those feelings is tough, and this is another great exercise. Thanks, Courtney!

  2. Thank you. I lost my blog post for today. Need to start over. :( Wish I would have intuited that.
