Are you listening to the inner voice that tells you how much you have in your life to appreciate and guides you to do what’s best for you? Or are you listening to the inner voice that tells you you’re not good enough and you should be doing more? Or the one that tells you of all the bad things that might happen if you reach for too much success?
Or perhaps you’re listening to people around you who tell you what you should or shouldn’t be doing. Or those who want you to see things only from their perspective and be just like them. Or those who want to sell you the solution to all your problems.
You have probably experienced that inner voice that guides you and points you in the right direction. You know that when you listen to it things tend to work out well, and when you don’t – well, things don’t work out so well.
It’s easy for that inner guiding voice (the one that’s good for you) to be drowned out by all the other voices. You may feel you’ve lost your connection to it because there are so many other things competing for your attention. How do you re-connect with it?
I think we have to be constantly aware of staying connected to ourselves. To notice when our REAL voice is being drowned out and to be willing to let go and disconnect form all those other voices and messages. It takes practice – because those other voices can be very persistent and insistent.
Action Step: Choose at least one method that helps you slow down and connect with YOUR supportive inner voice, that gives you time to listen to it and do it daily. Here are some ideas:
- Walking (without headphones)
- Yoga, Tai Chi or something similar
- Quiet time (especially in nature)
I have faith in my inner voice and I pay attention to it daily.
