I filled my diffuser with some water, thew in a few eucalyptus drops, and I turned it on. All of a sudden, I heard random voices coming from the diffuser. WTF? I tried to pick it up to make out what the voices were saying, but as soon as I touched it they stopped. That freaked me out even more, and I dropped the diffuser spilling the water everywhere. I immediately turned it off and thought to myself, “I am losing my mind!”
The next morning, the diffuser wasn’t even on, and some guy started yelling through it like a sports announcer saying something about a guy in the crowd. I unplugged it, and basically ran out of my apartment. I was telling a few co-workers about it and one said, “Bates, you should really lay off the shrooms.” At that moment, I was fully aware of how ridiculous I sounded, and I kinda wished I did drugs so I could have a logical explanation.
Regardless, the whole thing got me thinking and here is what I took away from this little experience…
Expect the unexpected.
When things don’t go as planned, accept it and move on.
Perception is everything and you are responsible for how others perceive you.
Always know your audience and present yourself accordingly.
There will always be judgement.
When people judge, laugh it off. You know who you are.
There might not be a reasonable or logical explanation for everything that happens.
Don’t waste your time trying to figure out why things happen, just know you’ll be ok.
Sometimes things can get a little freaky, and that’s totally fine.
Understand most people don’t have an open mind.
Yup, I got all of this from a couple of random voices and some spilled eucalyptus water. My brain is bananas!
BTW, turns out that there was kind of sort of an explanation. There is a blue tooth option on the diffuser. That said, I never set it up and it’s definitely not registered to my phone. Regardless, the most important thing I’m taking away from this is I have to go find this guy in the crowd. Obviously, he’s very important! haha ;)
