"I was washing my breakfast dishes one morning when it occurred to me to
go to visit a friend who lived several miles away. I did my work and
started to dress for my journey, when there came over me such a feeling
of depression, or despondency, or gloom, that I could not understand.
I kept on getting ready, all the time trying to reason away the feeling.
But it would not go. Finally I got my hat on and one glove and started
for the door, when such a heaviness came over me that I turned back into
my room and sat down saying, 'God, I want to know what the meaning is of
The answer came loud, strong and firm, 'Stay at home.' I stayed, and
taking off my hat, gloves and cape I felt so light I seemed to walk on
air. At the time I supposed the voice (I call it voice for want of a
more definite term) had told me to stay at home because some one was
coming to me for help. This was my first year as a teacher and healer.
But not a soul came that day, nor that night, and the thought flitted
through my mind that perhaps it was all nonsense after all and I might
as well have gone.
Well, the outcome was that the train I would have taken met with a
fearful accident in which many were killed or badly injured. This is
only one of many similar experiences I have had. I do not stop to reason
out things. The world has tried for 1900 years to follow reason, and
look at the outcome I follow my intuition and it never fails me."
