“When the voice and the vision on the inside is more profound, clear and loud than all opinions on the outside, you’ve begun to master your life.” – John Demartini
“Call Madeleine, she can help you.” This was the first really clear guidance I ever received from my Inner Being. Even though I knew I was free to ignore it, I also knew it came from a place I could trust with my life.
My best friend, Madeleine, had been practicing Buddhism for about six months at the time and was turning her life around. For one thing, her previously manic personality was now peaceful. What? For another thing, this previously starving artist was now selling her paintings for $1,000 or more. Huh? But still, I had no interest in Buddhism for myself. Fine for her, but you know…
Until that message from my Inner Being.
Even though I hadn’t been asking in words for help from the Universe, I was most certainly asking. I was asking with my entire being, with every cell in my body. When the message came, I knew to follow it.
As I meditated, I started to get it that I have a Universal Partner – that I’m not in this alone; that I don’t have to do everything all by myself. When I rely on my own power, life is unnecessarily difficult. When I connect with my non-physical partner and tap into the infinite power within, life is fun and delicious.
Inner guidance, or intuition, is the navigation system, the GPS you were born with. It’s standard equipment, included at no additional charge.
Inner guidance flows to you as naturally as the air you breathe. To access your inner guidance, all you have to do is ask and listen. Ask. Listen. Receive. Easy peasy.
“We do well to listen to this Inner Voice, for it tells us of a life wonderful in its scope; of a love beyond our fondest dreams; of a freedom which the soul craves.” – Ernest Holmes
We live in a world of “experts.” And, of course, the experts – doctors, coaches, consultants of all kinds – can provide extremely valuable support. The problem comes when you give away your power to an external authority. It’s essential to know and remember that you have access to an internal authority with guidance, tailor-made for you. The key is to always process external guidance through your own inner wisdom, by asking, “Does this FEEL right to ME?“
The answer you’re looking for is inside you – ALWAYS!
No one else knows what’s best for you. Yes, of course, you can seek advice from experts and opinions from friends, but your best answer always comes from that still, small voice within.
Even if you’ve listened to others your entire life and never trusted your own truth, your Inner Being is always there, patiently waiting for you to tune in. You may hear your answers immediately or an insight may pop into your head while you’re in the shower or you may have a dream that provides the clarity you desire, and you KNOW: “This feels right to me. I will do this.”
There is a rich history of famous people receiving guidance in their sleep. Thomas Edison went to sleep intending to wake up with the answer to a problem; and he usually did. Salvador Dali often awakened with a brilliant idea for a painting. The periodic table of elements, still in use today, came to Dmitri Mendeleev in his sleep. An idea for a revolutionary new engraving technique came to William Blake during sleep.
“There is guidance for each of us, and by lowly listening, we shall hear the right word.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Tuning in to that still, small voice within provides ongoing support in creating the joyful, fulfilling life you desire. Tuning in to your Inner Being aligns you with your infinite potential, your innate wisdom, your genius and your creativity. Tuning in to Guidance from the Inside Out aligns you with Who You Really Are.
