I didn’t follow my intuition and because of it I missed rocking out to my soul brother Zach Deputy last night.

I started to get a sharp pain on the pads of both of my feet. I heard a quiet voice that said, “Put your shoes back on.” I ignored it because I thought I knew better than the voices in my head. The pain got worse and worse until I was walking with a full on double limp.
I limped with tears streaming down my face until I finally saw the oasis! The sign to my yoga studio where my poor tootsies would finally find relief. After I set out my mat and plopped my booty down, I took a moment to check out the damage. I had pulsating blisters on my pinky toes, my middle toe on my left foot and monstrous blisters on the balls of both of my feet. After some breathing exercises where I tried to ignore the burning in my feet, we moved to downward dog. I shed a tear. It was so painful!
The next day even though I heard another soft, but slightly louder voice that said I should take the bus into town, it was beautiful out so I walked…or more like limped. I hobbled into yoga class again. I saw that my blisters were now full of water. I used an unsterilized scissor to pop all of them and winced in pain during almost the entire class.
Now not only did I have painful blisters, but now I had open wounds that hurt so badly every time I put any weight on my foot. I was going to pony up and rock the night away to one of my favorite musicians ever, Zach Deputy. I kept on hearing a voice in my head that said, “NO!” I was going to ignore it again when the voice got louder and louder until I couldn’t ignore it.
Even so I was like, “But but but…it’s Zach Deputy. He’s awesome and his music makes you happy.”
The voice said no again and it was even louder. Damn it intuition. Why do you have to be so smart?
If I had listened to all of the previous voices I would not have been in the predicament that I was in. My dancing feet would have been in tip top shape and I would have danced the night away to Mr. Deputy. I knew that if I ignored my intuition again my feet would be in even more trouble.
Do ignore those voices sometimes too? What do the voices in your head say to you?
