You can hear them long before you can see them.
Honk honk honk.
You never exactly know when it will happen. Some years it is early in the fall. Other years the snow has already fallen. But guaranteed one day or another flocks of Canada Geese make their way overhead.
I always stop when I can finally see them, and watch their beautiful v-formation flying by. It’s a real reminder that winter will soon be upon us. And of course, seeing geese in the spring is a sure sign that winter has once again left.
Wild geese pay attention to their instincts to decide when it’s time to head south. They know when they need to round up the family group and start off for warmer climates. A little earlier one year, a little later another year.
In fact, when they don’t pay attention to that little internal voice, geese can actually become year round residents. Not good for a migratory bird. It leads to a flock of problems for both birds and people.
Do you pay attention to your instincts?
People, like wild geese, have internal signals that we usually call intuition. That nagging little feeling that something is not quite right, or things need to change. Or sometimes the sense that something is exactly right. We usually have a physical reaction – the hair on your arms stands up, a feeling in your gut, a twinge, a flush, an urge.
When that happens, what do most people do?
At best you take a little notice of it. And then you dismiss it.
We’ve all had that experience of “I knew I shouldn’t have done that” but we go ahead and do it anyway.
Let your intuition take flight
You have instincts for all the right reasons.
I know…some of you are saying,
“Well I followed my intuition once and it was all wrong.”
“You know I had a funny feeling before my flight and I got on the plane and it didn’t crash. My intuition must be faulty.”
Not a chance.
Your intuition is always on the money.
Your interpretation of it might be somewhat off the mark. There’s no doubt that little sensation means something. You just might misinterpret what it is.
No worries. Sometimes it takes a little practice to get to know…and trust your intuition.

When your intuition is in full flight, there’s some great information at your finger tips.
Here’s a flock of tips to get you started:
- Have a bird’s eye view for hunches and feelings.
- Be on the lookout for your intuitive voice.
- Stop and pay attention when you do get an intuitive hit.
- Give up the attachment to your interpretation.
- When you are off the mark, consider what else that intuition might have been about.
- Start small – you don’t have to wildly alter your life based on a twinge in your stomach. Until you comfortably trust your instincts, let your intuition work on smaller decisions.
With a little practice you’ll be winging your way to success.
