Inner knowing is not something that a lot of women spend time thinking about. They have way too much to do. You will know this right away if you have a family, job, house, kids, dogs, aging parents, a mortgage, two jobs and a husband. Did I forget something here? Yes, I did, your personal time. But then, how many women these days actually have personal time?
I don't see a lot of hands going up out there. I didn't really expect to because personal time is like gold to many of us. How do we do it all? Sure, we hear the "clone" jokes and secretly wish it were true, that there were two of us. The truth is we do it because no one else will, because we are good at what we do and we thrive on challenges. Yes, but enough already!
There comes a time when you need to listen to your inner spirit, call it intuition if you will and pay close attention to what it says. Who has time to listen? We need to deliberately make the time out of our busy days, even if it is only a 5-minute slice of peace and tranquility.
Why would we want to listen to our intuition? We need to listen to our intuition because that is what truly guides us through life's ups and downs, helps us resolve thorny issues and provides flashes of insight into how to solve problems. No doubt you've been in situations where you didn't listen to that quick flash of inner knowing and regretted it immensely. Right? I thought so. I know I've been guilty of that myself. ☺
We all do it, stuff that little voice yelling inside our heads down into a box and over ride it with logic. Women seem to be better at listening now and then, but they still have a few miles to go to harness the power.
To harness the power we need to quiet our minds, calm the thoughts that zap through our heads in a continuous flow. The best time to stop the chatter in your mind is in a steaming bath, door closed, eyes closed and totally relax. Now listen closely. Your inner spirit, intuition will speak to you if only you will acknowledge and listen to it and then act on it.
If the bath routine doesn't work, short 5-minute periods of mediation time will also work. Try for a quiet room, a comfortable chair, peaceful music, closed eyes and utterly let go. The thoughts and feelings will come. Write them down and listen with your heart and not your mind. Inner knowing brings inner peace and unleashes the potential power you have inside.
