You Are Your Best Guide
“Practice listening to your intuition, your inner voice; ask questions; be curious; see what you see; hear what you hear; and then act upon what you know to be true. These intuitive powers were given to your soul at birth.”
― Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype
Yesterday I was reading one of my favourite authors Carolyn Myss.
Have you ever had one of those penny dropping moments where you see something or hear something and it all comes together and makes sense on so many levels?
Carolyn Myss spoke about intuition, the absolute importance of following and being led by our inner guidance.
Our inner guidance gives us signs, so that we are never really truly blind sided by all the events that happen in our lives. Our habits as human beings is that we look for the logic and the certainty in the guidance and signs.
Intuition cannot come to knock on your door and tell you what is happening or going to happen. We want to know exactly what is going to happen, what is going on and when.
It simply does not work that way.
We are more in tuned with our intuition when we are in-tuned with our inner guidance
Getting in tuned requires, quiet time, trust in self, faith in the process and importantly courage to take the steps particularly when there is zero indication that it will work.
Many of the most successful people in their field point to the fact that their gut feelings, their intuition pointed them to that book to write, that call to make, that deal to enter into.
What I took away from Carolyn's reading yesterday is this:
Your intuition, is like truth serum. You often do not like what it communicates to you but you cannot force it to say otherwise. You can create methods of temporary distraction – that’s certainly true. But in the end, intuitive hits win out, because the truth one strives to repress finds a way of incarnating within the events of one’s life.
You are your best guide, that is simply just the truth
