While researching the current information on Rupert Sheldrake I found an online test he offers.
On this page: http://www.sheldrake.org/Onlineexp/portal is an audio anticipation test. They want
You to “feel” what you will hear next. You are to relax and choose from four choices.
It’s really a very simple test however, when I read they want you to intuit what you will hear next my stomach went into knots. But, I thought I have 8 chances, I will get over this silly fear. No one knows what the score is anyway and I am very intuitive, I will ace this test.
So, you get to choose which one you will hear next from this list:
President Bush – speech
The Beetles – Strawberry Fields
Of course I thought I don’t want to hear Bush and immediately and my mind said, it’s not what you want to hear it’s what’s coming up next!
The cat, I want to hear the cat purr….and the little voice said, no, that’s not it, try the Strawberry Fields. But I clicked on the cat and of course I heard the Beetles singing.
Ok, I have 7 choices left, what’s next I asked my guides? There was no answer so I said, it’s the cat purring that’s coming next, I am sure of it.
No, said the voice, that’s not next…..the Beetles are next.
What? I just heard them, what are the odds it would be two times in a row?
So I punched the Cat purring and you won’t believe it but the little voice was right, I heard the Beetles again.
Ok, I can do this. So what’s next?
Logically, the cat purring I thought.
No, said the voice it’s random, it can be anything…
Ok, then it has to be Bush.
Not waiting for any reply from the little voice, that’s what I chose and the next thing was….. a skylark singing.
I can do this; I know what’s coming next, now it has to be the cat purring.
But instead it was President Bush!
The little voice said, you’re the one that keeps telling people how naturally intuitive they are so show me something.
Just watch me, how many choices are left? I can do this.
I will hear the cat purring next.
Then I heard the skylark sing again.
Ok, that’s outrageous this must be rigged.
But honestly it has to be the cat purring now it’s the 8th time; I know it’s the cat!
That’s when the Beatles sang Strawberry Field’s for the third time.
So, I had 8 wrong out of 8. Great score for an intuitive.
I wonder if I am the only one who over rides the “little voice.” I find it especially difficult to listen to this voice when it’s not logical and when the answers are so important. It becomes easy to let my egotistical left brain run the show and totally override the intuitive right brain, which was the purpose of the test, to use your intuition over logic!
Is this what happens to us when we have to pitch a project to someone important? The times we choke our natural intuitive insights and rely on the left brain then leave thinking we never pitched the heart of the project.
I have read several places that the more you honor the little voice and do what it says, the stronger it gets and the easier life becomes.
If anyone else tries Sheldrake’s audio test, please tell me if you get to hear the cat purring.
