The Dropsies

by | Aug 6, 2011 | Living the Intuitive Life

Have you ever had something fly out of your hands inexplicably? The next time that happens, consider that it is your body’s way of telling you that what you were holding is not in your best interests.


I learned about this intuitive technique about 25 years ago, from a man and woman couple who were teaching a class on intuition. I wish I could remember their names, to give them credit for the tip. I have found this technique to be totally reliable and invite you to check it out for yourself.


The other day, I was unpacking groceries and putting items into the refrigerator when an item that I was going to use for dinner that night, in an hour or two, flew out of my hands and onto the floor. I was startled into acknowledging what my body was trying to tell me, that this ingredient was better served at room temperature and not cold. I placed the item on the counter, for use later, and was thankful for the intuitive guidance that came in the form of dropping the item.


Granted, it is not a matter of life or death whether an ingredient is served at room temperature or not. Cold things can be harmful to the body and holistic health people often advise us to eat foods and drink beverages at room temperature, not cold. Cold things can harm the kidneys and that part of the body is related to fear, in acupuncture theory.


This tip about dropping things also shows up when buying things. You pick something off of a rack and it falls down inexplicably. Or, you are right at the check out counter and something falls out of your hands. In these times, consider that it is your body’s way of telling you that this item might not be in your best interest in that moment.


It might not break the bank to buy something you will end up not using, however, intuition is about energy efficiency and one’s own best interest. It you are attached to the item you dropped, your intuition may be trying to tell you something better is coming along.


What I love about this technique is how it demonstrates the body’s way of signaling, “Reconsider.” The body senses what the mind doesn’t know. Our mind and thoughts do not give us the whole story, as much as they would urge us to think that they do. There are sources of information on the unseen, invisible spectrum that intuitive senses pick up. It benefits us to listen to the subtle signals, like dropping things, and consider that our whole being is trying to tell us something of benefit to us.


If you have a story of how dropping something was an intuitive message, please share it in the comments section.

  1. Oh, this is a very interesting idea! I’m going to watch it when I drop stuff and see if it’s a “reconsider” signal.
