I had never pushed a baby out before…
I wasn’t a nurse or a doctor.
I didn’t have a mid-wife or doula.
But I had my intuition. And it was telling me something wasn’t right.
I told the nurse what I felt. She said I was over reacting. She said my body was just balancing out. She said get some rest. I tried. But my intuition started speaking again- saying something isn’t right.
I told the other nurse... She told the other nurse... They both came in and said get some rest. I tried. But my intuition started speaking again- this time saying, tell them again. I felt crazy, a little hormonal and attempted to quiet my intuition and get some rest.
CONTEXT: I had been in labor for 3 full days, I endured a natural birth, my daughter was born with fluid in her lunges, I had never pushed a baby out before, and I was exhausted. I thought I was delirious.
I had convinced myself that I was being extra, and decided to totally ignore my intuition. Intuition continued to speak- this time screaming something isn’t right, Nakeia!
I stood up to get myself ready to go to bed, when I began to physically feel that something intuition was trying to tell me.
I called the nurse in and told her that I she needed to check me… and finally, she did…
I woke up the next morning with the other nurse standing over me in tears.
That was the night intuition saved my life.
My intuition: the voice that speaks the words God wants me to hear- when I need to hear from Him the most. It’s my divine guidance. It’s my saving grace. It’s my super power, and I’ll never ignore it again.
Following your intuition may make you + the people around you uncomfortable. Listening to a voice inside your head may seem crazy. It’s a sacred practice that may take some time to develop. But when that voice speaks, listen. It’s your super power and one day, it will save your life.
Until next time, Love...
