Nagging Idea

This is from a daily reading book called, A Cherokee Feast of Days, by Joyce Sequichie Hifler.

Have you ever had an idea that just keeps coming back to you? Maybe you don't quite know what do to with it. When you try to push it away, the idea keeps coming back. When that happens, it's time to pay attention! There a reason the idea keeps coming back to you--probably because Spirit keeps bringing it back to you.

Try talking with it. You may be amazed at what you'll learn. Take a notebook and simply ask the idea, "Why do you keep coming back to me?" and then wait for an answer. Write that answer down and ask another question. Before long, you have a regular conversation going with the idea. Some call this intuition, some simply an urge, and some believe the idea speaks from their own subconscious. Wherever it comes from, pay attention--because this idea may be leading you to new and better things.

Slowly I perceived that a voice was trying to tell me something. It was a bird cry, but I tell you, I began to understand some of it. - John (Fire) Lame Deer, Lakota

So that's what I'm doing? I thought I was just thinking out loud (which is a little disturbing when it really is out loud).
