Last week I boarded a plane out of Lagos. While waiting to get my boarding pass I listened to an argument that was going on beside me. So this very pretty woman, early 40s maybe, was being told that she couldn't travel with one of her bags that had some breakables in it. They were pretty stern about that and the woman was adamant about getting on the plane and with all her stuff.
I left to board my plane and after a very bumpy flight we sha landed safely. Walking towards arrivals I heard something fall and break behind me, I turned back to see it was that same woman at the airport. Her stuff had fallen because she was carrying too many things, and so I offered to help her carry some of her bags. We immediately got talking.
Less than two minutes after meeting, I'd already learnt that she moved out of Lagos a year ago because her husband was transferred, she's been married for 15yrs with 4 kids, and she's a lawyer. When I told her I'm her learned colleague she laughed and said "no wonder, like minds attract".
She was still travelling to her state of residence, an hour away from town so I told her to join my taxi into town and I would drop her at the park where she would get a car going her way.
The airport is quite far from town and with the traffic, it was a long ride. We got talking. For some reason it was so easy for me to talk to her and I told her I had/have a suitor where she lives but one major reason I've refused to consider him seriously is because I just don't see myself living there, and he in turn doesnt see himself ever not living there.
It was then she told me that she's a pastor and has her own ministry, and the things she had at the airport were gifts from her 'flock'. She said she has a church in Lagos and has to go to Lagos twice a month to join her congregation, do ministrations and counseling. Yes, counseling, as in in the seeing visions sense. She said she has prophetic powers, was born with them and had been born again since she was 12 and has run her ministry for eight years. Then she started to talk.
She said I needed to pray about certain things, especially my career and that she can sense that I'm really good at planning and organizing (funny, I actually am), she said she sees me being very successful at a particular business, that it might take some time, but that I will eventually make it. (Funnier because my boo has been telling me the same thing for over a year).
Then she began to talk about this suitor. She said even though she can sense that I'm in love with someone else right now, I should come home with her and stay a couple of days. She said, rightly, that the suitor in question has been on my case long before I met the guy I'm presently seeing and that it seems he really loves me so I should give both options a chance. She said I should tell him I'm in town and ask him to come over. She would like to see him for herself and know what kind of spirit he has. She would like to know what he's spiritual life is like. She would like to see him and me together and see (spiritually) if we are meant to be husband and wife.
I told her I couldn't come home with her but I could come into town at another time. She smiled and said "You still want to play. You still want to have fun. Ok, go and have fun. You came into town to groove, i know, I won't stop you. Have all the fun but come back and lets talk when you've finished. I'm hearing so many things about you in my spirit".
And then she started to tell me things about my past, and they were actually true. And she started to tell me things about my future and then she stopped short, laughed and said "Oya I don't want to say too much so that you won't run away from me". I laughed too but I didn't urge her on. She added again that she's seeing many things and there's so much she needs to talk to me about. She was rather very excited and was visibly struggling to restrain herself from saying the things she wanted to.
When I dropped her off she told me to try to come to her town and I'm welcome to stay in her house as long as I want. She said to chat her up on whatsapp so that we can talk more and continue our conversation.
It's been five days and I've neither called nor messaged her, and I don't think I will.
I don't know why but I think I like my life the way it is and I see these prophecies as some kind of interference. I want things to happen naturally and I want to be surprised!
I met the lady, we instantly hit it up and liked each other and she's welcoming me, a stranger, to stay with her family. She said she senses that I have a good spirit so she's not worried, and would gladly prepare a room for me in her home for the weekend. It was a heartwarming thought but not one I'm willing to entertain.
Yet, a part of me is wondering. Did we meet for a reason? Should I go and see her? What am I afraid of?
In my shoes, would you go and see her, or call her at least... Would you be curious, would you want to know?
