You are all intuitive. “I’m not!”

Reminds me of that classic scene in Monty Python’s The Life of Brian.

Brian is addressing a huge crowd that is mindlessly following him, thinking he’s the messiah. He tries to impress on them that they should think for themselves – and tells them they are all individuals. They are all different. And then a meek voice comes from somewhere in the crowd: I’m not.

You are all intuitive. You were born with intuition – it works as a legitimate functioning system within your body, connecting to energetic systems outside your body.

I call it your Personal Guidance System. 

Jennifer and I have started doing workshops. Teaching people how to become more intuitive. We emphasise the word more, because everyone is intuitive, irrespective of whether they acknowledge it, or trust it, or deny and suppress it.

What our workshops do is teach you how you can become more intuitive, and bring forth these nascent skills and powers so that you can begin to make better choices in your life. Because in the end, that’s the purpose of intuition – to help guide you along your journey through life.

One of the things we do in the workshops is detail the thirteen steps you can take to prepare yourself for intuition. These steps are a necessary precursor to embracing your PGS.

I’m not special ~

In starting off a blog with the title ‘I’m not special,’ it kind of implies that actually I am special, and I know I’m special, and anyone who knows me must also know that I’m special, because bloody hell isn’t it obvious?

I mean, crikey – you’d have to be a total dumb arse if you knew me and weren’t in awe of how special I was.

And in writing a blog titled I’m not special I’m actually pretending to be humble, and that, in a perverse kind of way, makes me even more special.

Does that make sense?

Nah – it doesn’t make much sense to me either. 

I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m not special, because we all are special, and that makes none of us special.

I’ve made a movie on intuition, and now I’ve written a book about it too – but that doesn’t make me special. It makes me curious. It just so happens that over the past forty years I’ve developed certain skills that have enabled me to turn that curiosity into films and books. 

I heard a voice early one morning, while driving. It told me to slow down as I was approaching an intersection. A truck ran a red light and nearly killed me.

That voice saved my life. 

I was curious about that voice – so I made a movie about my search to find out what it was. 

And what I discovered was that what happened to me wasn’t so special – many many people have had similar experiences. Most of them just don’t want to talk about it – and none have made a film about it. 

Paul Allen died the other day. Paul Allen was the co-founder of Microsoft, along with Bill Gates.

Paul Allen was 65 – same age as me.  He used his years on this planet in ways different to me. And to you.

Does that make him special? More special than me, or you?

We are all special.

None of us are more or less special than anyone else. We are all part of divine energy and it’s this divine energy that’s special.

PGS the Book is now available ~

PGS the Book is now on sale on Amazon – 

The book goes even deeper than the film into the mechanics of intuition, and details how you can use your intuition every day to make better choices, to enrich your life in ways you never thought possible.

Over the past year, the film has been playing to sell-out screenings across the US, and Australia. The film has been called a “life-changer,” and Caroline Myss described it as “truly superb.”  

The film finally goes on sale online on November 1st!

Thanks to James Terry of Arcadia Press for publishing the book!

By the way, for those of you in Australia, because Amazon still hasn’t worked out its GST issue with our country, the paperback won’t be available for another month or so. If you want one, email me on billbennett.pgs@gmail.com, and I’ll post you a copy. Cost is AU$25 + postage.

PGS website now live!

Our PGS website is now online and live!

Here it is:
http://www.pgsintuition.com/

If you view the website on a desktop or laptop, you get a really cool parallax effect as you scroll down. Try it!  (It doesn’t work on “touch” devices though, like tablets or iPhones.)

The website at this stage is informational only – and basic information at that – but as we get closer to the release next year at 4:44pm on the 4th of the 4th, the website will become the platform for release. It will also have news of preview screenings, etc, and further information about the making of the film.

And soon there will also be a trailer on the website.

Natacha my brilliant website designer once again has done a stellar job. Thanks also to Aldous Massie, who designed the key art and worked with Natacha to design the look of the site, consistent with the look of the film.

Today Jennifer and I leave for the US for four weeks, for a series of Work-in-Progress screenings of the film – the first being at a major International Holistic Medicine Summit at Kansas City next week, hosted by Dr. Norman Shealy, considered the “father of holistic medicine” in the west.

The Summit will also feature, amongst other luminaries, Caroline Myss. Both Caroline and Norm feature prominently in my film.

I’ll be posting regularly on this blog, and on Facebook – I’m pretty confident in the film now. I think it’s in good shape. Even so, these next round of screenings are going to be very telling…

Announcing release of PGS the Movie – 4:44!

I’m thrilled to announce the release date of my movie PGS – Intuition is your Personal Guidance System.

It will be at 4:44pm on the 4th of April next year – 4:44 @ 4/4.

We’re calling it our 444 release!

For those of you familiar with this blog, 444 has been a very powerful number for this film. I had a prophetic dream nearly three years ago now which prompted me to make the film – and I woke up out of that dream at 4:44am.

I thought at the time that this seemed strange, to wake up from such a powerful dream at 4:44, so I Googled: What does 444 mean? Here is what I read:

444 asks that you pay attention to your intuition and inner-wisdom as your connection with your angels and the angelic realm is very strong at this time. You are encouraged to continue on your current path as your drive and determination will lead to success and fulfilment.

Angel Number 444 is a message that the angels and Archangels are with you, encouraging and guiding you. They are offering you positive energies, inner-strength and support to enable you to get the work done that you need to. They know and understand that you have been toiling diligently towards your goals, and encourage you to continue on your current path to achieve the success and results you desire. Use your strong connection with the angelic realm to your benefit and be open to their promptings and messages. Listen to your intuition and follow its guidance.

Basically, at that moment I had to make a decision as to whether I believed this stuff or not – and I decided to believe it, and act. And so that morning I booked flights to go to India to start filming.

In other words, 444 prompted me to make the film.

Here is the original blog that I wrote at the time:
https://pgstheway.com/2014/07/07/today-i-woke-up-at-444/

So we’ll be releasing off our own platform on Video on Demand – and we’ll probably have an “event” red carpet theatrical premiere in San Francisco to coincide with the release.

We’ll follow up with Cinema on Demand screenings in the US, Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand. Other territories will follow.

Soon we’ll be launching our marketing campaign – we’re giving ourselves nearly 12 months to market the film.

There will be a book of the film available on release as well.

We’re all very excited. The film is still in post production but looking fantastic. Very powerful, very engaging – the first film to really show you how intuition works, and how you can use it to lead a more fulfilling life.

 

This is how intuition works ~

Okay, it’s Sunday morning here in Australia and I was about to go out on my walk.

On Sundays, I usually do my 20km walk, but my knee has been niggling me lately so I decided I would do my shorter 15km walk.

I really didn’t want to – I wanted to do the longer walk – but I felt I should do the sensible thing and give my knee a bit of a rest. (The last 5kms on the 20km walk is usually tough.)

It was cold here – 2 degrees C – so I put on the requisite four layers and prepared to go out. I got my iPod, because I always listen to books as I walk, and noticed that the battery was completely flat.

This was odd, I thought.

I’d fully charged the battery only two days earlier, and had barely used it since. How could it have gone flat?

I wanted to go out straight away, and not wait to recharge the battery, so I decided I would listen to my book – John Steinbeck’s To a God Unknown – on my iPhone, via my Audible app. However, the book wasn’t on my Audible app.

This was odd too.

Why wasn’t it on the app? It was in my Audible library, it was on my iTunes, why wasn’t it appearing on my app on my iPhone?

This meant I couldn’t finish the book, not on this walk. Not if I wanted to use my iPhone to access Audible. So I then began to scroll through the other books I could read – and I came to James Van Praagh’s book, Heaven & Earth – Making the Psychic Connection. 

James is someone I’ve interviewed for my intuition film. He gave me a wonderful interview, and we spent several hours talking in his beautiful house on the beach in Southern California.

I didn’t know what the book was about, other than psychic connections, but it “called to me” so I decided that it would be the book I would read on the walk.

Then I noticed that the listening time of the book was 3hrs 18mins. Usually I do my long walk, the 20km walk, in about 3hrs 15 minutes, and so this immediately told me that I should do the longer walk, that way I’d be able to listen to the book in its entirety.

I began the walk, and began listening to the book, beautifully narrated by James, and suddenly realised that it was about intuition. In fact, it turned out to be about more than just intuition – but it was what I needed to hear right at that moment.

In a couple of weeks I go back into the editing room on my intuition film, and tomorrow I get back into writing the script. So it was absolutely what I needed to hear – more so than the Steinbeck book. It was a far better use of my time.

So through the iPod battery mysteriously going flat, and my Steinbeck book mysteriously not being on my iPhone Audible app, I was directed to a book that I needed to listen to, in order for me to progress my film on intuition.

Coincidence?
Nup.
No way.

In documenting stories like this on this blog, some of you might think that I’m trying to draw spiritual certitudes out of ordinary every day occurrences.

That I’m making a big deal out of nothing.

You can think that.
And you can walk through your life and not see the signs all around you.
Let me tell you – they’re there, waiting for you to see.
Waiting for you to awaken.

The more I go into this stuff, the more I’m given assurance that I’m on the right path.

By the way, the walk turned out to be glorious. The knee gave me no pain, and I walked swiftly and effortlessly, buoyed by James’ wonderful book.

Ireland – my PGS rocks!

I’m in Ireland now.

I’ll keep writing about The Portuguese Camino as things present themselves to me. But I just wanted to share with you an extraordinary example of how my PGS works.

This happened today.

Okay, first the backstory: Jennifer and I had gone two full days without coffee. Unbelievable, right? But true.

The coffee at one place we’d stayed at was totally undrinkable, so we had tea. The next morning we left early, skipped breakfast, and later couldn’t find a decent coffee place.

The last coffee we’d had was at the Cafe Agriamo in Santiago.

I’m a three-double-espresso-a-morning-before-I-can-function guy. So you can imagine the withdrawal I was going through. This morning, the need for coffee had become nothing less than hand-trembling desperate. I was slurring my speech and my vision was becoming impaired.

We were in Cork, a beautiful Irish town on the south coast of Ireland.

Cork riverOne of the reasons I’d come to Cork was because it has a very famous food and produce market – the English Market. The Lonely Planet Guide calls it a National Treasure. Rick Stein featured it in one of his tv shows. I really wanted to go to this market, and there was a cafe there called the Farmgate Cafe, reputed to be fantastic for breakfasts.

My plan was to have breakfast in this cafe and have a decent cup of coffee.

We were staying in a guest house about 2.5kms from the market, so we set off early to walk in. After about a kilometre, I saw a cafe.

Should we stop and have a quick coffee? I asked myself. My need for a coffee fix was verging on the pathetic.

No. There’s not that much further to walk, I said to myself. And you can have a great coffee at the Farmgate Cafe at the English Markets. It’ll be worth waiting for. 

We got to a lane which would lead us to the markets. There was another coffee shop on the corner of this lane. I had the same internal conversation. No, I said to myself. Wait. Have patience. The English Market is just up the lane and around the corner. You’ll get far better coffee there. 

I’d actually walked down this lane the previous night. Jennifer had decided to stay in and have an early night. I’d gone out alone looking for a meal, and discovered a terrific little restaurant. I very much wanted to show it to her.

But for some reason I walked right past – even though there was a sign up pointing towards the English Market.

I knew there was another lane running parallel, and for some reason this lane “called to me.”

I don’t know how I can describe my usage of PGS other than to say things “call to me.” Ways to go, paths to follow, things to do, people to talk to – sometimes they call to me, other times they don’t.

This parallel lane called to me. The two cafes we’d already passed hadn’t called to me. The English Markets were calling to me.

English Markets entrance

We walked up this lane. It was nondescript, and uninteresting. it seemed like it was a delivery lane for stores that had their shopfronts on the other lane I’d walked down last night. The more interesting lane, where the restaurant was.

But this lane called to me.

About 100m from the end of the lane, I saw a little cafe on the corner.

It called to me.

On impulse, I said to Jennifer: Let’s have coffee here.

She looked at me oddly. Why? she said. The English Markets are just around the corner.

And they were. We were probably no more than 250m from the English Markets, and from the Farmgate Cafe. The fabulous place to have breakfast.

Still this little coffee shop called to me.

Jennifer knows now not to argue with my PGS, so we walked inside.

The cafe was a tidy little place – not very crowded, with baskets of scones and cakes on the counters.

We ordered coffees – she a latte, and me a cappuccino. Double strength.

From the first sip I knew this was good coffee.

From the second sip I knew this was great coffee.

We had scones, and they were still warm. Freshly baked. With local butter and home-made jam, they were delicious.

We paid the bill, and we walked out. And then Jennnifer asked if I’d known.

Known what? I said.

Look – and she pointed to all these plaques outside the cafe attesting to it being an award winning coffee shop.

Curious, I went back inside. The owner was a bloke named Richard. I told him the coffee was great, and asked about the awards.

Richard

He told me they’d been winning awards since they first opened thirteen years ago, and just this year the Restauranteurs Association had voted the cafe the best coffee shop in all of Ireland.

Not Cork – Ireland.

I was stunned.

My PGS had led me to the best coffee shop in all of Ireland.

We walked into the English Markets, and the Farmgate Cafe was shut.

My PGS rocks!!
