We have all had that feeling at one time or another. Something that shows up in the gut, an inner knowing that cannot be explained, or explained away. And yet, our mind tells us that what cannot be seen cannot be trusted, so we ignore the feeling of anticipation or foreboding, and we push it way down into the energetic body, where it can no longer disturb us. How much of our lives are spent engaged in the internal and ongoing argument between the ego and the soul? And how do we move from a place of human experience to a place of divine inspiration?
We move to a place of divine inspiration by listening to the voice of the soul. Listening to the voice of the soul is a practice and a process. Creating space to be quiet and become comfortable with being alone with our thoughts is critical. Start by dedicating a time each day, just five minutes to begin, and finding a peaceful spot, unplugged and quiet. This is a time to let one’s thoughts wander through the hills and valleys of the imagination.
Once we establish connection to our quiet self, we need to ask what is the inner voice, and how can one recognize it? It may come with a feeling in the pit of the stomach, an expansion of the heart-center, or a tingling sensation within the body. An awareness is sparked, an awareness of emotion and/or beliefs that we hold dear because they are familiar and comfortable. With this awareness, contemplation will follow. And we may discover that those beliefs no longer serve us.
Once we establish a practice of being quiet, and begin to recognize our inner voice, then what? Again, listening to the sacred inner voice is a practice. Sometimes listening to the soul is easier than others, particularly when what the soul seems to be saying is contrary to our expectations. We need to have faith and choose our inner voice even when it is awkward or uncomfortable. Each time we choose our inner voice with success we will feel a deeper connection to our higher-self, and we will experience more of the truth of who we are, who we are meant to be. We discover a deeper meaning to our lives and feel more joy. Eventually we will trust our inner knowing and begin to speak and behave authentically from the heart.
