The Struggle with Our Own Knowing

IMG_2794This morning a friend asked me how to explain to others how being in awareness of your own abilities can bring you into a better place. Even though we all have abilities, most like to stay in their safe place so that they don’t feel vulnerable.

My Response: Most people are afraid to question what they were always taught to believe … so they fight with themselves, second guessing what they feel inside to be true. Your soul already knows where you are going and what you should do, but most people fight with their own souls because they were taught something else.

Don’t get too caught up in meanings other people, websites or books give you, you can listen to them, take them in and make note but don’t let that be what guides you. You have to always listen to your own inner knowing… your own soul.

 The more we trust, the more our lives will come together in a much more peaceful way.
I’m not saying we won’t have battles because we will. We will battle, we will struggle and we will survive.. time and time again… that’s all a part of living and if you have never been through a storm how can you help guide another as they go through their own.

Many Blessings,

Learning How to Trust Your Inner Guide

IMG_8974Imagine you are walking around your house in the dark. You allow yourself to be guided as you feel your way around searching for your way. When you come upon a place that doesn’t quite feel right… you stop and look extra hard into the darkness and most often change your path. It is not what you could see that made you stop and change direction.. it is what you felt.

When your physical sight was gone you allowed yourself to be guided in another way and you trust that guidance even though you cannot see what is in front of you … you feel it and you change direction based on that feeling.

That same instinct is with you at all times. You trust it when you cannot see … so why not trust it when you can?

If it doesn’t feel right .. then it’s most likely not. Change direction until it does.

Many Blessings,

Change, Trust and Fear

Change, Trust & Fear

Change is something that must happen all the time. Change doesn’t have to be scary and it doesn’t have to be drastic. Small changes are occuring within and around us every day.

Changing your surroundings for instance, doesn’t always mean a change in location. There are many things in your life you could change if you think about it. Maybe it’s the way you interact with people or a certain person. Maybe it’s routine things you do that can or need to be changed. It really could be anything in your life, it doesn’t mean you have to physically move or change locations.

Maybe there are things you would like to do or say but those things are outside your
comfort zone. Keep in mind the golden rule “harm none” including yourself and then give some of these things outside your comfort zone a try. By doing that,  you will definately shake things up a bit … even if it is just within yourself.

Another rule to keep in mind “Don’t bite off more than you can chew”.

Trust is a hard one. I for one, know how hard it is to trust not only others but most importantly… yourself. The question comes to mind of how do you know the difference between instinct/gut feelings and fear? For instance.. say a choice in your life appears… how does one know if you are leaning toward or away from that choice because of instinct or because of your own fears?

From my own experiences, I have found that my true gut feelings/inner knowing doesn’t cause fear. They don’t make me nervous or hesitate. Instead I am filled more with a knowing, a confidence and a positive outlook. Only when my fears come into play do I begin to second guess myself and question my true inner guidance.

Examine how you feel about all the many things in your life as you plan ahead.  When that little voice whispers in your ear… “Oh no you can’t do that” but everything inside you feels so right and it feels as though you were going against your inner knowing  by not doing it ….. then I’d say that “Oh you can’t do that” voice came from your fears.

If the voice says “Don’t do that” and with that voice you feel a sense of knowing it was indeed the wrong thing to do… then thats the voice you should be listening to.

See the difference?
