What does your inner voice sound like? How do you know what your intuition sounds like?
First things first, if you want to tap into your inner guidance, find the most peaceful and happy feeling that you can. Even in the middle of turmoil, pause and focus.
Close your eyes and feel your breath. Reach for the happiest thing you can think of, whatever comes to mind that feels better.
In this stance, you are preparing yourself for listening.
Your inner voice speaks quietly. It’s gentle. Always speaking words of love or calm. It feels like something opening or a knot being undone.
Its guidance always feels simple and loving, easy. It never, ever advises harm to you or anyone. It is uncomplicated, effortless.
Knowing the hallmark traits of your inner guidance helps you to know when you’re truly tapping in to your highest.
Does life suddenly feel a little lighter? Do you feel more compassion for yourself? Do you feel a sense of connection rather than isolation?
Listening to your inner guidance or intuition means that you are consciously acknowledging something very important.
It means that you know that you have the answer you are looking for. You know that you are a wise, loved Being having a sometimes messy but invigorating life experience.
No one knows You better than You. You’re receiving the guidance and direction you seek. It comes to you so naturally, so seamlessly, that you sometimes look right past it.
We sometimes get used to difficulty, so when the answer lies somewhere that feels Easy…it takes a bit of energetic movement to sync up with that answer.
The good news is that it’s easy to make the energetic moves to get to a good place of listening. You do it all the time when you’re not paying attention to your suffering.
You get lost in a good song, or laugh at something, or gaze at something beautiful.
Much like your physical body is a self-regulating system tuned to the highest well-being, your energetic body operates in a similar manner. It also seeks your highest well-being, it wants to be in a state of equilibrium and harmony.
It will distract you, or even put you to sleep in an unexpected nap or an early bedtime so that your energetic makeup can readjust without interruption.
One of my most treasured mantras is “I Know.” It returns us to truth. Somewhere in me, I Know. And I’m just syncing up with that deep, beautiful knowing.
So a little while into a meditation I’ll smile and softly say or think, I Know. And I’ll touch my heart space with my palm and smile and say or think, “I Know”.
So here’s your reminder that You Know. You know your best, you know your highest. You know love and clarity. You might not always have the words to express that Knowing, but it reflects in how you move. In the words you say and the decisions you make. The knowing unfolds as your path, easily and effortlessly.
