Then I thought. If Barbara J. Hansen ( author of Listen To The Cry of a Child) can change her life based on the advise of Oprah then I can too. So back I went to the drawing board. I dusted off my Writer's Market book and started going through the subject index with my heart instead of my eyes. Was there a broader audience I hadn't expected to reach be out there and somehow I had missed this? As I scanned the pages of agents I listened to my body's reaction as their names set in. When my pulse started to race when I came to a certain publishing company, I made sure to flag it with a sticky note. Perhaps this is my subconscience telling me that I need to inquire to them.
Not everyone believes in a 6th sense, or even in trusting instincts over intelluct. It is hard to trust something just on a hunch alone. My friend has a powerful sense of intuition that comes to her through dreams. Have you ever had an inkling about something and later on it turned out to be correct? Most people will simply chalk this up to a coincidence. But perhaphs there is something more to it. Whatever way the universe talks to you, take the time to listen and you just may be amazed at the outcomes.
