Are You Listening To Your Still, Small Voice?

6dec-5If you’re like I was 10 years ago, you’ll have been sensing for quite some time that you have a bigger game to play in life.

I say this firstly because there’s ALWAYS a bigger game for women like you and me – we weren’t born to play small – and secondly because, since that is the case, your intuition will have been bugging you to take notice of this fact!

So, what do I mean by ‘Intuition’?

Well, I guess I see Intuition as the communication method of the ‘inner voice’ that comes from the spiritual part of us.

The Inner Voice

In my experience, the ‘inner voice’ comes from that part of me which knows what’s best for me and my life.

6dec-6As I get older, I don’t feel the need to get hung up on any particular definition of that part of me – in my mind’s eye, I see her as an infinitely wiser version of me who’s lived several lifetimes, been there, done it, got the t-shirt and knows me inside out, upside down and back again. So she’s more than qualified to provide me with life guidance – a bit like an inner female Yoda!

In Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert calls this part of her her ‘Supreme Self’ – the self who is eternally at peace, her ‘true identity, universal and divine’. I like that – thanks Elizabeth, I think I’ll use it for today!

You may have your own word (like soul, spirit, higher self, etc.), or you may not, but what you will know is that there is a spiritual part of you – because you sense it in your mind and you feel it in your heart (even if you don’t consciously acknowledge it yet).

6dec-7This has nothing to do with any particular faith or religion, by the way – I’m simply talking about the part of you that knows that you are more than your body & your mind and that believes, 100%, in your innate brilliance and in your potential to achieve total magnificence, both in your own life and in the world.

Isn’t it interesting, then, that this is the part of us that we often pay least attention to? Especially when, if we engage with our Supreme Self and listen to what she has to say, we can avoid so much of the unhappiness, stress and angst we tolerate in our lives?

I’ve been hearing her voice for as long as I can remember – as I’m sure you have.

As a child, the voice came via my ‘conscience’ and thoughts in my head which let me know when something was right or wrong for me. As I’ve got older, and have acknowledged my Supreme Self, I hear her voice in my head quite clearly. The most powerful communication from my Supreme Self has always come through feelings and emotions. Which is why they’re SO IMPORTANT to acknowledge, honour and understand.

6dec-8I always trust my feelings these days; whatever it is I’m feeling, there’s always a message in it – whether that’s a churning in the pit of the stomach feeling, a distinctly uncomfortable feeling, a fearful feeling, a ‘sixth sense’ feeling or a feeling of elation and peace.

So the question is, how do you consciously listen to your inner voice?

The answer, as you might expect, is simple – just listen and feel!

If you didn’t have a deep sense of there being MORE to you, of you and for you, you wouldn’t be reading this now.

That sense of MORE comes from your intuition – you intuitively KNOW that there’s so much more for you to be and do in the world.

So, go with that feeling. Trust it. And simply listen to the voice that tells you, via thoughts and feelings, what’s right or wrong for your growth, development, fulfilment and joy.

That means both taking time out to just ‘be’, by creating time and space where nothing, other than ‘being’, takes priority.

6dec-9It also means being ‘tuned in’, in every moment, to the voice of your Supreme Self via your intuition.

Intuition acts like a radio receiver for your inner voice. It’s just like radio waves in the atmosphere – they’re always being transmitted, 24 hours a day, but unless you tune your ‘inner radio’ to the right frequency, you’ll never hear the words and music. So get tuned in, by simply listening, feeling and trusting.

And, just so you know, the words, feelings and insights you get from your Supreme Self, via your inner voice, are never negative. She loves you unconditionally and fully, because she knows that you are beautiful and perfect just as you are. Anything else is just background noise, which comes from mistaken beliefs you’ve picked up about life and yourself – and which you can tune out any time you choose.

Because, as I keep telling you, YOU have the power!
