Do things from the heart because that is life

business life Aug 08, 2020

Back when I was young I realised I had a weird superpower... and apparently it used to drive my parents crazy...

However, it became something I use every single day in my work and how I see and process the world...

When I was young I realised I could remember and feel word for word every conversation that I was involved in...

When I was 2 years old I would speak word for word the whole 100 Dalmatians audio story in the car while driving with my parents...

I could recite and explain full movies word for word...

I would remember my conversations with people and the emotions that went along with it...

Growing up this was difficult and heart breaking. Kids, friends, teachers, parents... I was trying to make sense of this world and so many things did not compute.

I would process things as feelings and then they would find their place in my heart...

My mind was in search of peace, not empty peace, but rather and understanding peace...

‘What is this world all about type’ of peace.

I grew up in a Catholic school environment... and I am proud that I was one of the worst examples of a one there was...

It didn’t make sense to me... so I couldn’t do it...

I even discussed with the religion teacher openly in class about what she was teaching us...

I didn’t allow her to gloss over an answer... I asked for details to support her beliefs and well, by the end of the class I was kicked out of the classroom to wait for the principal... which In fact was the final proof to me and the class of her argument being flawed.

The biggest compliment was when the captain of the debating team came to me and said that was amazing.

He had never seen anyone deconstruct an argument like I did and present it in a way that could not be disputed...

Turns out the religion teacher was also the debating coach too...

It didn’t make sense...

However...

It turned out perfectly... the great part about is that my teachers, year masters and even principal have made news the next in the last decade or 2 for all the wrong reasons...

I don’t need to explain that here... I’ll let you connect the dots... but yes these guys have been named for their involvement in things that supported my knowing back then...

Fortunately I was able to be on the sidelines of the stuff that was going on ...

but I certainly now know what my chemistry teacher and cricket coach was trying to do...

So anyway... a little tangent there but back to the main thread...

Stuff had to make sense to me...

It had to feel right... calm and in order 🙂

I don’t remember things... I understand things and from that place I can operate...

I know things...

Things I shouldn’t know...

I also have learnt to back myself with these knowings...

One time... I was working with a company and I met a potential team member...

The 2 owners loved this person...

Her resume was amazing... she came in... interviewed well and was full of energy... she was keen to join the team and wanted to start straight away...

I met her before she left and they told me how awesome she was and asked my opinion...

I called ‘bullshit’...

I said everything she is talking about is a lie and fake. I don’t believe a word...

A pretty big call for me to the owners...

But it’s what I thought so I had to say what I felt... and I’m pretty positive I would have looked like an idiot...

In the hours that followed was pretty uncomfortable in the office...

This was the exact opposite of what they thought and I expect they wondered what planet I was on...

They were busy preparing the ‘letter of offer’ for this new person when... from behind the screen I saw one of the owners face go pale...

The other owner came over and read the screen and now there were two owners with their mouths open, hand covering their mouth reading the email that just came through...

The email was from the person they just interviewed... apologising... that everything on her resume and what she said in her interview was fake and a lie.

She didn’t think it would go this far and really just wanted to meet them in person...

They obviously looked at me a little dumbfounded at the situation and also that something that I presented which was such a radically opposing view was actually correct...

And... how could I have known...

Dunno... but I always have... things I shouldn’t know I just do...

I have had very well known ‘spiritual people’ let’s say seek me out so they can ask me what I see and the knowledge I can access...

I certainly have not told anyone about this publically so, if you are trading this... well I decided to leave that in here, and click post and yep now you know 🙂 ...

I have many other unexplained situations which people have observed directly...

In one heightened situation I could hear clear as day word for word a conversation in a room with 3 closed doors and 100m between use and then.

The people I was with started chatting to me and I was ‘shhh’ I’m listening to what they are saying in the room...

They thought I was crazy... yep maybe I was or maybe I am... but hey that’s what goes on in my head

It was a legal situation with a bad human where someone was trying to be really disgusting to us...

What I could hear ... I was listening to them trying to tell the judge what they wanted and I heard the judge ripping into them telling them they are disgusting and to stop wasting their time. They have no case and the lawyer should be ashamed of them self...

I could hear every word.. loudly... the whole conversation...

Ok... my hands are cramping from writing this on my phone 🙂 aanndddd it’s 6:44 am and the surf is going to be amazing this morning...

Interestingly... kinda solid surf... where the consequences of a mistake could be very serious...

I’ve learnt to take life into our own hands... and for me as a participant of life that also means doing things where death is actually is sometime only a few steps away too...

So, get to know yourself and imagine what superpowers might lie in your shadows...

Trust those knowing feelings especially so if they go against social conditioning...

Do things from your heart because THAT is life...
