When you know. . .

This blog post is for those who need to learn to trust their intuition more. . . 

One of my all-time favourite movies is Serendipity (2001) starring John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale.  I've only watched it this year and I think I blogged about another track from the movie soundtrack.  There is an interesting rendition of the Bob Marley classic Waiting in vain by Annie Lennox that is worth a listen.  I guess because the recent blog posts have all been about relationships, that I also draw inspiration from one of the most romantic movies that I love.  Happy chance coincidences and meetings make up the majority of this film, and make me think about those same serendipitous moments in my own life.  

When you know that you know who you love, you can't deny it
Or go back, or give up, or pretend that you don't buy it
When it's clear this time you've found the one, you'll never let him go
Cos you know and you know that you know

When you find the one, it might help to know if he thinks he's the one too, and that he thinks you're his one too.  There's nothing worse than making assumptions, everyone is on the wrong page, in fact, they are in completely different books and mayhem ensues.  How much do you trust yourself in these types of situations?  Do know what you know, that you think you know what you know?  You can question whether you think you love someone - but everyone knows there is a distinct difference between loving someone and being in love with someone - you can't get the two twisted.  Accepting that you love someone or you are in love with someone - this first step is something that you must be able to acknowledge for yourself.  After this acceptance stage - then address the next stage - panic.  What are you meant to do know?  How do you know that the next few actions that you put in place will be the right ones?  That's exactly the point; you know and you know that you know - so what are you prepared to know and what are you prepared to do from this knowing that's been carrying on?

When you feel in your skin, your bones, and the hollows of your heart
There's no way you can wait till tomorrow
When there isn't any doubt about it once you come this close
Cos you know and you know that you know

It must be excruciating to have to wait, especially if you can feel it in all parts of your body, where practically everything is screaming out for you to take notice - that there is no denying your feelings in that sense.  I guess it just really depends on how you want to proceed with your feelings - do you want to pursue this and make something happen or will you ignore all of the signs that point to everything that you feel because it's too close for comfort and you can't handle it?


You can feel love surround you like the sky round the moon
This is how love has found you, now you know what to do

If you know what you need to do, just trust that your intuition will steer you on the path.  Even if the other person puts you through the wringer, doesn't reciprocate or does reciprocate but makes you work for it - this is what love is supposed to be, what love is supposed to do, because like the sky is around the moon - love can seem like such a vast and expansive canvas of a sky while you remain like a constant moon that shows how love affects you in the different phases of growth while in love.

When you know that you know who you need, you can't deny it
Or go back, or give up, or pretend that you don't buy it
When it's clear this time you've found the one, you'll never let him go
Cos you know and you know that you know

I hope that when you find the one, that you trust your intuition to move you to take action.
When you know or come to the realisation about the affairs of your heart and what you need to do, the state of where you are with your feelings, when you fully succumb to your feelings and allow them to be at the centre of your life for a change, that's when you know.  When you surrender yourself to the joy, sorrows, fears and surprises that love brings, then you know that the adventures can begin.  Acknowledging this openly, and having it sit right within your mind, can only happen if you feel it first within you heart.  So if your intuition leads you there, accept it and stop resisting.

And it's time you come in from the cold
Haaaa. . . 
And you know that you know . . .
