Let’s think about our own inner guidance and the wisdom that comes from Spirit. One of the things that I have learned to do is trust my own intuition as no one can know what is good for me better than I know myself. Trusting my inner guidance and intuition is something that often gets better or easier with practice. And once you get it down, you feel safe and stable in life.
Think about all the different things that you do in your life, one of those things could be going to college and getting a degree in business because that’s what your father and grandfather did. So when you graduated high school, you decided to go to college because that’s what you were “supposed to” do. When you realize that it’s not college, or even business – that you really want to do. What you really want to do is play sports, become a farmer, go to ballet school and on and on.
Now think to yourself, where does that idea of what were “supposed to” do come from? Sometimes it comes from our parents. Sometimes it comes from our friends. Sometimes it comes from feeling like we aren’t good enough because we compare ourselves to an older sibling who is really smart or something along those lines. Sometimes it even comes from what you feel society wants you to do. So, despite not listening to your own inner guidance here, you end up doing what you don’t want to do and find yourself down the road unhappy and not really understanding why or how to get out of that unhappy feeling.
Of course you can’t go back and change the past, but you can live in the now and trust your own inner guidance to make decisions based on what you feel is right for your self – and not what others feel is right for you.
Sometimes this takes a little soul-searching, and that’s okay!
Do yourself a favor and get in tune with your inner self. One of the ways you can do that is by having “quiet time” every day to just be with you. You can do this through meditation, and you can do this just by sitting quietly and thinking about your life and what makes you feel good and like you are living your life that you want to live.
Most importantly it’s imperative to make YOU important to yourself. Listen to what your inner heart is telling you, that inner heart and Spirit I am talking about ~ is your connection to Spirit or God, or whatever name you call that Spiritual Oneness that is all of us. Once you listen to your inner heart, take steps to be – or do – what your inner heart is telling you to be, or do. Always remember that the first step is listening to your inner guidance then the second step is putting action towards that inner guidance, and the third step is getting yourself out of the way & trusting that inner guidance!
Once you start to work on yourself, and listen to your own inner guidance, little by little, you’ll realize that it’s actually easy to put you in high rankings of important people in your life!
It’s my opinion that if you don’t take care of yourself first and you are healthy in mind, body and spirit – then you can’t really help other people. So many people, when you tell them to take time out for themselves have the excuse of – I don’t have time because I’m busy helping other people – well if you first take care of yourself before moving on to other people then you have no excuses of not having time. If you can’t give yourself the time to be quiet and listen to your own inner guidance, then that’s okay too, just know that you might not be living to the highest potential that you could be.
So today take some time out to listen to your own inner guidance and follow your heart to an inspired and beautiful life!
