How often do you take the time to listen deeply to the quiet voice within you, to find the answers waiting for you?
Do you ever wonder what secrets or wisdom are hidden beneath the surface?
What difference would it make for you to know those hidden answers?
We are often told to listen to your soul and find the answers within. But how do we do this?
1. Take some time out to connect with yourself.
Turn off your phone, computer and TV, and allow yourself time to just be. This could be going for a long walk in solitude, sitting outside, taking a long relaxing bath, resting silently in your favorite chair. It doesn’t matter how you do this. The important part is to take time to disconnect from all the busy-ness, stress and distraction of your everyday life.
2. Take some deep breaths and quiet your mind.
Allow your thoughts to float on by like clouds. If there are any thoughts that come up that seem important, write them down and then continue to let them float away. You can address them later. Just a few minutes to calm and quiet can shift your entire day. Don’t stress about whether you are doing it right or not, or get frustrated about it not working. The point is to take the time out for yourself.
3. Connect with your deeper self.
Once your mind is somewhat quiet, connect with your deeper self. I like to envision a space at the very center of me, at my core. This space is like the eye of a storm. Everything may be whirling around me in chaos, but at that center, I am calm, quiet and peaceful. Simply sitting and connecting with this center is very powerful. Taking 5 or 10 minutes each day to sit in this peaceful place, your deeper self, will help you to feel more centered, connected, and at peace with yourself.
4. Ask questions and allow the answers to come into your awareness.
Once you are connected to this deepest part of you, ask questions and allow the answers to come into your awareness. Allowing the answers to come without searching or digging, without expectation or agenda. Ask the question, and then sit back and wait for any insight, vision, word, message, feeling or knowing to come to you. The answers can come in unlimited ways. Be open to however they may come to you in that moment, and even later as you go about your day. The answers are not always immediate. Be patient.
5. Trust and practice.
It all comes down to trust and practice. Trust in yourself. Trust that your answers are there and will come to you. Trust in the messages and the answers that you receive. The way to build trust is to practice. Take some time every day to quiet and connect with your deeper self and tap into the wisdom it holds. The more you do this, the easier it will be and the more you can trust the answers you receive.
