I'm glad to hear that the little guy was still alive! I would have been panicking too, pets are family. How is Smoothie doing now?
I think the issue that I run up against when trying to use my intuition to find things is that I just don't trust it as much for some reason, as compared to using my intuition to work through inner issues or guiding others. Strange huh?
Like if I lose something, I try to tune in, I can literally only pick up 'static', but if I'm tuning into someone's question, no problems at all, clear signal feed.
Some perception & assumption block there for sure.
