Energy twinges
Usually when I'm selecting something from a pile of multiple similar things, like a fork from the drawer or a pen from the desk tidy, one will feel more imbued with the right energy than the others and I have to pick that one. It can be anything: pairs of socks, cans of drink, which chopstick to go with which other chopstick, etc. Sometimes I'll even pick up another one because I'm not sure, find out it has the wrong kind of energy and put it back. Or compensate by changing something else, like replacing the knife and picking the right one to go with that fork.

Sometimes it will extend to which way up something should be. I've met some people who will insist that French bread is placed 'face-down' on the table, although I suspect that's more to do with superstition than anything else. Sometimes it's about how many times I come into contact with something: if I pick up a business card a certain number of times it might not feel right, but this can be rectified by putting it down and picking it up again. If my head doesn't hit the pillow the right number of times, I'll raise it and lower it until it does.

Looking back on all of the above this is mostly in the past, but I do wonder whether that's because I'm currently too stressed and knackered to think about it any more or whether I've genuinely grown out of it. Unusual, in any event.
