This is What it Takes to Hear Your Inner Wisdom
Press the pause button on the outside world. Stop and take some time to practice listening within.
Often in life, you are faced with difficult choices, and often you have to make an important decision that will change your destiny. Sometimes the dilemma is which one to choose, and another time you do not see the solution. So, you end up falling in junction situations, or you end up being in a stalemate position — people give you different bits of advice leading you to feel hesitant, uncertain, confused, and fearful. You become so confused that you begin asking God, The Universe, a Higher Power, anything you believe or do not believe in, to guide you, to give you a sign of what you need to do.
In such situations, it is usually said to listen to your heart, hear the voice of your soul, hear your inner voice telling you what to do.
All of the answers are within you and the only criterion for what is right is your inner feeling for what is currently happening. The only voice you can trust is your inner voice.
But who is your inner voice? Who is the voice of your heart? How do you distinguish it?
At times, when you look for an exit, you usually hear your head, not just the two voices between your head and your heart, but a choir of voices. You have different thoughts and doubts. Your mind becomes a spinning carousel; a storm is raging like the ocean has been raging. You hear a voice in your head, “What if I am wrong?” “What if I make a mistake?” “Isn’t it better to try?”
Another voice from the choir in your head tells you, “What if I miss the chance of…”, “What will others say?” “What if I lose?” The choir in your head has indefinite questions, making you doubt yourself.
Have you thought about sitting down and reflecting on the voices in your head telling you what you should and shouldn’t do? I promise you that when you begin to analyze them and unravel them, you’ll find them quite ridiculous. The crackle in your head raises so many noises, creates such a chaos that you end up having no access to your inner voice at all.
And your inner voice is quiet, it’s not even a voice, but rather a feeling, a spiritual comfort filled with awareness and telling you, “you can.”
Your reasoning thinks and analyzes, convinced of the “correctness” of logic. Your soul does not think, your soul knows, your soul will never fail you. Your soul is like a whisper.
How do you hear that voice?
First — determine the importance of what is happening. Everything in life carries the same weight. Everything matters and is important, isn’t it? There should be no judgment between what to focus on and what not to. Think about this importance, the complexity of the problems you create — nothing is, in reality, good or bad, but your thoughts make it so. When you attach great importance to things, it seems to you that the problem is very complex, irresolvable, and the decision is difficult and fateful.
Under the heavy burden of this “fateful” decision you have to make, you block and fog yourself. To reduce this importance you’ve created, remember that nothing in life is right or wrong — there are simply different ways to make a decision.
Whatever decision you make, you will always win something, and lose something else. Whichever way you take you will learn new things, you will meet different people. Very often what you have thought of your mistakes then turns out to be your greatest good.
Second — stop analyzing. An excessive analysis will only interfere, confuse, and entwine you. The more you try to find the answer, the more it will run away from you.
Third — relax. Learn to relax. Forget about the problems you’re undergoing and try not to think about them. Go to nature, read a book, go out with friends, and take a stillness break. Very often when your mind is distracted, the decisions suddenly come up. Not by chance, some of the greatest discoveries and insights are made at the moments when a man is resting. Then you quail is silenced, you are calm and “see” the answer — in most cases, it is very close to you.
Fourth — know that the answer exists. The answer is there, somewhere — you just have to give it space and time to “see” it. There are no problems in life that do not have an answer.
Believe that you will “see” the answer at the right time and the right moment. Sometimes the answers may not come at once, but that’s because you might have had to meet someone or learn something that would take you to the answers.
Fifth — watch for signs. You can often find an answer quite unexpectedly from an unexpected place; an accidentally missed word from someone, a phrase you read online, a street sign, or even something you see in your dreams. The possibilities are endless.
When you know that the answer is already there and you trust that it is there, your subconscious works for you. You begin to see and attract things that will take you to the answer and will unlock the knowledge inside you.
Then you will “hear” your inner voice.
When you learn to hear your inner voice, you will always know what is right for you because your intuition will always direct you to the best solutions.
