Trust Your Intution

Yesterday I got a fun reminder to listen to myself and my Inner Guidance. I had to go for a drive, and for some reason I thought, "I should throw that Casting Crowns" CD in the player. Now, many of you have probably figured out that I'm not Christian. But I do listen to some Christian music every once in a while, especially when it's about God in general, and not too Jesus-y or fundamentalist. I especially LOVE JJ Heller.

To me, she is the embodiment of what people "should" be - not overly preachy, but very strong in her convictions. And above all, respectful of others. She also lives what she believes, and that is very beautiful. If you are looking for some good positive music, no matter what your religious or spiritual bent, I cannot recommend her enough.

But back to the story: I spied my old Casting Crowns CD, and thought, "What the hey." They do tend to get overly-preachy, and I wasn't particularly in the mood for that, but the main thought that ran through my head was, "Trust Your Intuition." So I did.

I popped in the CD and went happily on my way. About 4 songs in I was kind of humming along and thought, "Wow, this is really good." So I turned the volume up. Then the next song came on, and I realized, "Wait a minute! This isn't Casting Crowns!" It was a CD I thought I had lost months ago! I must have put it in the wrong CD cover by mistake.

So I turned up the volume some more and went even more merrily on my way!
Always trust your intuition. You never know what fun and unexpected surprises you may get along the way!


  1. I love this! I love it when music synchronicities happen that way! At first, I admit, I thought the word "crowns" was "clowns." I'm scared of clowns, but I continued to read. I love it when music has positive messages. I was taken by Zac Brown's "Let it Go" yesterday...a great song with a great message :)

  2. Ame,
    I love JJ Heller. I stumbled upon her one day, and found myself checking her out on YouTube. This song is fab.

    Intuition speaks...loudly when it has to! For me, it's a needling in the side!

    Have a great day

  3. Lisa - I'm still not touching that one. :0)

    Marcia - my husband got me this album for my birthday. He said it took him 3 months to track it down. She does appear on KLuv (or is it KLove?) the Christian station a lot, if you're into that. Definitely check out her other stuff. I have her friended on FaceBook, and hear she is pregnant again and is working on another album. :0)
