Old time Jamaican people use to say “folla yuh mind!”, which means that we should listen to our instinct and this is so absolutely true!. There are many times that things happen and you find yourself saying, “If only I had listen to the voice in my head, If only I had followed my mind!”.
That errant thought, that fleetingly comes by ever so often, teasing you, taunting you or warning you might just be a protective spirit showing you things that you ought to know. The one that needles you to turn back and go check if you turned the stove off before you left home, the one that told Monique, in the story titled, Forbidden Love (posted on Embracing Spirituality), to smell Luke’s clothes. The voice that tells you not to eat the food that the neighbor brought over or that the tutor that your child goes to seems slightly sinister. Often times, unless you are extremely paranoid that small inkling is correct, often times it turns out that you are correct, if you follow your mind. I really don’t feel in the mood today to pull from my file box story’s of how “folla yuh mind”, has assisted Obara Meji , so I would rather hear your story. For once let Obara Meji enjoy some of your experiences,of how you followed your own mind and what was the outcome!.
