Have a challenge? Something that so far has eluded resolution? Have you tried your best? Talked to a couple of trusted friends, read an article about the subject, even saw a counselor. And still no answer? Now where do you turn? Well, would you believe me if I told you there is an expert who has a sure-fire answer for you? And that this expert is at your disposal 24/7? Too good to be true? Well, turns out, it’s not because the expert is YOU!
Deep beneath the incessant chatter of your monkey mind, your expert dwells. In this place of sweet silence, your highest wisdom, best self, spirit, soul, higher power–whatever you want to call it–can speak to you. Sounds good, right? But how do you get to this quiet place?
It’s simple. Note, I didn’t say easy. Here’s something to try: think about a transcendent time where you were lifted out of your ordinary life and felt connected to something greater. Were you watching a glorious sunset, listening to beautiful music, reading an inspirational passage, walking in nature, meditating, praying, chanting, petting your dog, swimming in the ocean, doing Tai Chi?
Whatever it was, however long it was, this is how you get there. It’s your special practice to access your internal guidance system–the state where your intuition takes mastery over your intellect, and whispers its wisdom in your ear. Don’t expect perfection after one or two times. It takes practice to get good at this. But if you stay with it, you will no doubt experience the magic of inner stillness where your answers can be found.
Wouldn’t it be great to rely on yourself instead of continually turning to outside sources? Of course, they can help, I’m not saying they can’t. But nobody knows you like you know you. And finding that internal place where you can hear your own voice will give you the best advice you can possibly get. Stay with it and I guarantee you will be richly rewarded.
