Changing Behaviors and Patterns

In the past, I allowed people to lie to me. Knowing their words were lies I accepted this in my life. I wanted to give each person the benefit of doubt, I looked past the little lies and thought more about why they lied. Was it that they were scared, had low self esteem, or maybe they felt less than for some reason and felt they needed the lie. Whatever the reason, it wasn’t needed. My thoughts, “Maybe one day they will not feel the need to lie to me anymore”. That never seems to work out that way, The truth may be hard but it doesn’t break trust. Without trust, you have NOTHING. This video is me breaking my own patters and behaviors of allowing things in my life that aren’t good for me. I’m watching out for myself way more these days and taking a lot less crap. I deserve better. If better never shows up, well at least I’m not living in a world of lies.

Choosing Your Own Happiness

Don’t put your happiness in the hands of those who don’t deserve it.. those who don’t truly love and appreciate your worth. Remember that YOU have the power to choose how you feel.

Trust Yourself

hawkTrusting others is one thing but when it comes to trusting yourself…. how well do you do?

If you’ve had trouble trusting yourself.. you’re definitely not alone. That seed of doubt lives within us all … who planted it there? I have no idea! But is sure would be nice to get rid of it!

Whether is comes to following our intuition or matters of the heart … many of us struggle with trusting that thing that stirs inside us. Our own inner guide. Over the years I have let go of that fear of “what if I’m wrong” but still it sometimes shows it’s ugly head. It’s a battle within, daily to trust what is felt and what our brain or heart wants us to feel or know.

Often when we follow that inner guide… we are guided is a good direction. I can’t remember ever following my intuition and it ending up wrong. I do recall often .. ignoring my intuition and then sit there face palmed asking myself .. why oh why didn’t I do what I already knew to do!!!

Start by trusting things you feel are small and as you start trusting yourself, you’ll find yourself trusting that guide more and more. Personally, I am still working on my own trust … but I can tell you it is well worth it. When I follow my guide and the sun shines bright on a path less complicated by my doubt … I smile from within and am encouraged all the more to continue building that trust within myself.

Daily Insight – The Voice of Guidance

IMG_0032-2

Today I pulled 3 cards from the deck.. studied them for a moment and then had this feeling deep down inside me that this was not what I was suppose to post about today. I took those 3 cards, placed them back in the deck and put them away. So, what is it that I am suppose to be talking about today?

Trusting that voice inside you that guides you in the right direction.

Everyone has those moments when you pause just before doing something, saying something or making some sort of decision. It’s that moment when a voice from somewhere inside you says “Choose another way”. In that moment we either listen to that voice or we start an argument with it. Many will tend to question both decisions… and then find themselves completely unsure of what to do next. The answer was already given to you but you didn’t listen. You didn’t trust it.

Today’s message is to start trusting that guidance … take baby steps if you must but start following your own inner guide.

So was I right today? Did this help you in the place that you are right now in your life? Let me know!

The Secret

garden path
How does one find their path?
How do we go about exploring ourselves?
How do we know which path to take?
How do we find understanding?
How do we let go?
How do we move forward?
How do we know we have made the right choices?
How do we find ourselves?
How do we …… ?

It all begins with patience. I know that isn’t the answer you were hoping for but that IS the answer.

We first must practice being patient with ourselves. Pushing or forcing answers to come into light never really works. To find what’s right … we often have to experience what’s wrong and this takes time.

Learn to first listen to your intuition. Your gut instincts will lead you down the correct path.   I know it’s not as easy as it sounds. We often question every inch of those gut feelings we get. Worried that our wishes and fears are getting in the way … we convince ourselves that those feelings are false.

Start off trusting small things and soon you will find yourself fully trusting YOURSELF!

Life gets easier and more manageable when we find that ability to trust our own intuition.

So many Questions

Where am I going ? Where am I suppose to be? What’s happening next? What do I do now? How will I know?

Open your eyes….. Look around….. You are where you need to be. You are who you are suppose to be… You already have the gifts you so desperately seek.

It is up to you to do the work. What are you waiting for ? It’s as if you think some giant sign will appear from the heavens that says … “You have made it…. You are here.” That’s not going to happen so stop waiting and stop asking.

There are no instructions…. There are no promises… Take the wheel and stop being a passenger in your own life. You are so afraid of taking a step forward that you don’t move at all. You just stand there asking all these questions…. Waiting for a big billboard to drop down in front of you with instructions for every move you should make.

Be you… Take control. Your instinct is there for a reason. Use it! Trust it!

When you begin asking the advise of others for every little thing that comes up in your life … you will start getting false answers. This is because Spirit is teaching you to trust YOUR OWN answers.

It is o to ask someone else from time to time.. after all.. if we look back and think about it.. we already knew the answers before we asked our questions.. we are just needing validation. Well there comes a point that you have to stop asking for validation so much and start trusting yourself.

I don’t post this because I want you all to stop asking me questions.. I’m posting this because I want you to have the tools and understanding to start trusting yourself and start believing in yourself. Before you ask advice … think about how you truly feel about the questions and what you feel about your own answers. Go ahead and ask…. but if validation does come through to you .. then TRUST yourself. Allow your own intuition to do it’s job. Stop second guessing yourself and everyone else.

I know many that will seek advice from me and then another and another and another. Some times we all give the same answers and yet they still question. Some times we all give different answers … and still they are not satisfied.

The correct answer is inside yourself.

Daily Insight – Insight – Growth – Balance

Ace of Air – Inspiration  – Insight – Mental Clarity

The answers are clear….. follow that hunch – that inner knowing. You know what to do so why question what you already know and feel? An inner balance will help you find the trust that is needed. Practice meditations and begin following your hunches… the more you follow the more you will begin trusting yourself fully.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Nine of Fire – Inner Strength – Break Through – Growth – Courage – Resolve

You know the gifts and the strengths that exist inside you… and you must begin now to trust that they will sprout fourth when the time is right. This does not mean that your actions stop.. it means you continue your work to progress but have patience in yourself and allow the gifts to fully develop in their own time. It is hard to see our own growth.. but take a journey back and look at where you were 10 years ago, 5 years ago, 3 years ago and even just 1 year ago.. you are growing .. and you must truth that you will continue this path of growth.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Balance – Looking Within – Change – Transformation

It is easy to become overwhelmed in today’s life .. take some time to step back and reflect within. Sometimes we must withdraw to regroup and gain our balance. Let  go of “doing” and just let go for a while. Listen to your inner knowing and when the time is right to begin “doing” again.. you’ll know.

Letting go is the key to wisdom…  clarity is revealed when one lets go.  Easier said then done… I know.. but practice makes perfect .. so pend some time teaching yourself the act of letting go.. even if for small moments at a time. You will benefit greatly from this practice, and the more you do it the more you benefit.

Daily Insight – Trusting Yourself

Trusting Yourself…. yeah … ok … this one is a HARD one!

I’m not sure about everyone else… but I was taught to question everything and that included myself. No one ever said to me that I shouldn’t trust myself but no one ever said I should either.

Looking back at my life so far.. I wish that I had someone to teach me to trust myself and my innermost feelings. Soooooooooooooo many things could have been avoided, had I gone with my instincts instead of questioning what I already knew and felt.

I cannot tell you exactly how to begin finding your own self trust… all I can say is that once you start believing in your own abilities and trusting your inner knowing.. life will start to come together as it has never done before. We all must find our own way down our individual path in life… my goal here is to be a flashlight in the night to help you see what is in front of you when all seems to be cloaked in the darkness of getting by.

I am here to tell you that it is well worth the efforts to stop doubting yourself, your abilities and your own knowing. I can tell you that when I have followed my instincts, I have found a much happier, healthy and enlightening trail along my path. The rewards are far more than just being right… the rewards go much deeper. Choosing to trust your intuition and following that knowledge, fills you with something that I cannot describe.. I only wish that you too will be able to experience the same.

Start out with small steps and pay attention to that stirring inside you that whispers.. turn this way … follow this road… stop… do this.. do that… or that whisper that tells you .. run … go the other way…. don’t travel that particular path. Whatever that whisper is inside you .. listen to it and trust it. The more you begin doing this.. the more you will start trusting and understanding who you are and where you belong and where you are going.

Many Blessings,

Our Inner Medicine Man

Shuffling my cards this morning to see what message Spirit brings and straight away the medicine man card flew right out of my hands. A sure sign that we need to pay extra attention to the message this card brings us.

Ahhhhhhhhh yes… this message is very clear. You are already what you seek. Step away from “Wanting to Become” and dance in the reality of “What Is”.

This is something we all struggle at different points in our lives. We over think situations, over think our own thinking, over think our own knowing and our instincts… we over think everything . If we can find that place in ourselves where we can just allow things to be as they are and trust what we already know, feel and believe .. that’s where the magic happens.

We are already who we are suppose to be and we already have the gifts we wish to have… we just have to stop fighting with ourselves to allow ourselves to be just that and to use and trust those gifts that are already inside us.

So the message today is: There is a Medicine man in every one of us.. we just have to trust that knowledge and allow it to be so.

Many Blessings,
Raventalker

 

Finding Trust

Finding Trust in yourself…. finding it in others is a whole other topic!

The question of the day is: How do you know when you can trust that little voice in your head?

This is a hard one to answer, but I will do my best to help you along.

I can only speak from personal experiences, so please keep this in mind as you continue to read.

For years I would push that little voice of knowing in my head away  for fear of “what if I’m wrong”. Time and time again I would ignore the voice and go another way with whatever it was before me. Time and time again I realized that I should have listened to that little voice.  I’m sure many of you are nodding your head and can relate. If only we could go back and actually go with that first thought.. that gut instinct. If only we could have trusted what we already seemed to know.

I’m not sure when I finally started trusting that voice. I just know that once I did .. everything started to fall into place a lot more often. As I continued trusting that inner knowing, my trust for following that voice grew and grew. It wasn’t something that just happened over night and from time to time I still find myself thinking “what if I’m wrong”, but that is far less these days then in times past.

I remember distinctly a particular time in my life when chaos was all around me. I was having a migraine that had at that point lasted for more than 3 days.  I was desperate for relief. I remember sitting at my desk at home, with my head in my hands asking for help from the universe. Suddenly I had this urge to take a piece of amethyst I had laying on the book shelf behind me … go up to bed and go to sleep. The likely hood of me falling to sleep with this headache wasn’t very good, but I did it anyway. I thought to myself, what do I have to lose. I actually fell asleep and fell asleep quickly. I woke up with the amethyst still in my hand and no headache at all. I was a bit startled by it all and in disbelief. I ran straight down to my computer to look up the properties of amethyst. The first thing listed on the site I first clicked was headache relief. OMG! How did I know to do that? It was the craziest thing ever that I knew without knowing I knew.

When situations came up after that one that were similar.. I would just go with that instinct and do what I was being urged to do. I would always look up the info after the fact and find that I was right in doing whatever it was at that time. This is when I started trusting myself more and more. The more things that came into my life and the more that I went with my instinct … the more that I trusted my own inner knowledge.

I won’t say that the struggle was suddenly gone… but having the courage to just take that leap of faith in yourself was the key.

If anyone is worth taking a leap of faith for.. let that someone be you. Trust yourself. You are worth it!

Many Blessing,
Raventalker

Daily Insight – It’s Just not in the Cards

As I shuffle my Vision Quest deck this morning and ask what the day has in store for us .. I lay down 3 cards … and then another… and another and one more.. so now I have six cards laid out across my desk. I scan across the cards looking for the insight that I am to share with you today and I hear a voice softly whisper … “It’s not in the cards, you seek is already with you.. it is implanted in your knowing already… you just have to trust what you already, instinctively know”
So there you have it … today’s insight.

It is one of the hardest things to do.. trusting yourself.. your abilities and the knowledge you instinctively carry inside yourself.

We always want to question that gut feeling and ask .. what if I’m wrong.

Today’s message is … TRUST

Many Blessings,
Raventalker

A Whisper of Trust

STORY OF THE DAY!

Ok so I go out to my car this morning to get my painting supplies, so I can get started on a new painting I have in mind to start today.

I was walking toward the front porch when I “sensed” that I had dropped something .. my arms were chocked full of stuff so I didn’t feel or hear anything drop or fall but I SENSED it.

I turned around and sure enough I had dropped one of the craft sticks I had bought… bent down to pick it up and right next to it a 4 leaf clover… so you know me… I had to thank the fairies for their gift and sing them a little song .. I always sing to them when looking for 4 leaf clovers… they like it and they show me more when I do and with every clover I pick I thank them.

So suddenly I had this feeling that there were more they wanted me to see… so I put the dog and my arm full of supplies in the house and came back out. I started singing my song and the 4 leaf clovers began to appear. I had this feeling that they wanted me to add these clovers to one of my special paintings I’m going to be working on soon and so they had much to show me. Singing my song I picked clover after clover until they said ok Raven… thats enough for now…lol.. they gave me 10 clovers just then.

Then I had this whisper in my ear to go around to the back yard. The whisper said that there is a feather waiting for me near one of the areas the birds feed from. So, ok I go in the house, put down my clovers and head for the back yard. I went directly to the feeder closest to the back deck because from the image they showed me, I knew it was close to the deck. I stood there looking around and looking over at the feeder that is in the middle of the back yard and knew it wasn’t over there. Then realized, oh yeah they feed over there by the tree where the squirrel feeder is and headed to the tree(also close to the deck). There it was … my gifted feather from a blue jay!

Message of the day… Listen to  that whisper! Great big raven smiles  🙂

Trust


TRUST TRUST TRUST

One of the biggest obstacles we are challenged with overcoming in life is trusting ourselves… trusting that inner voice .. and that gut instinct.

Although we will be overwhelmed with a particular feeling about a person, event, situation, etc .. we will question ourselves and question whether we are making the correct decision.. and quite often we will take the opposite of what we feel to be true.

We allow fearful thoughts to take over and push away that “knowing” we already possess.

I’m sure most of you can think back and find that those times you pushed away your instinct .. that ‘knowing” and took an alternate route .. and then found yourself quickly thinking .. DANG .. I SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO MYSELF!

I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN … lol becomes a common phase that runs through our minds ..

How do you begin to trust yourself.. that inner knowing inside?

Well, that’s the hard part … you have to just do it as each situation presents itself ..

You will have to determine which thoughts are just fear talking and which are that true inner knowing inside you.

Good luck and many blessings,
Raventalker
