Here is a brief overview:
This weeks topic is ‘Listening’: Listen to your wise self. Let your inner compass direct the course of your life.
How many times have you met someone and your instant reaction is ‘Ooh – I’m not sure about this person’. You decide to give them a chance, spend time with them – even develop a friendship or relationship – only to discover that later on down the track, your gut instinct was right. You probably know exactly what I’m talking about and I have to admit, it’s happened to me several times.
So why do we do this?
Are we going against our inner guidance because our logic brain sees that this choice is going to beneficial?
Well, maybe, yes.
Are we making these choices in the hope that people may like us and we will be acceptable? Well, most often, yes.
But by not trusting our own inner wisdom and guidance in view to being liked by someone else – well, are we not then putting ourselves forward and liking ourselves first?
We could go on with these questions for hours….
At the end of the day, living a happy, empowered and abundant life means putting you in control of your decisions – making conscious choices everyday to be happy and trusting your instincts. When you were a child, you knew when you were hungry right? We have a whole host of responses locked away in our bodies to help guide our choices as well as our incredible compass called our intuitive response.
When we begin to feel lost or confused about various aspects of our lives, our first instinct is to search for direction. We feel sure that the answers we need are out there somewhere, and finding them will help us to know the right way to turn.
While seeking advice and guidance from others can be helpful at times, it is not always the best way to help ourselves. Rather than relying on someone else to tell us OUR truth, we can instead choose to look within and find the answers inside ourselves. Each of us has been given the gift of an inner advisor that will never steer us wrong.
So, how do we tap this wealth of wisdom, you’re probably asking? It’s easier than you think and here’s a few tips on how to connect and create your best life!
1) Create a peaceful space
2) Quieten your mind
3) Ask and listen
4) Let the Solution evolve
Believe that your inner guidance knows what’s best for you, and move forward with courage. Remember that there are truly no right or wrong paths in life, only experiences that we can learn from.
Remember that you are the one writing the story of your life. In your quest for knowledge, you will come across information that feels right to you, and information that doesn’t seem to make sense. Trust your instincts and your hunches and allow them to lead you to the greatest success and happiness of your life!
Follow your joy and have an amazing week!
