The time has come to hone your listening skills. You’ve heard that before, right? We should all be better listeners?
I bet you don’t hear: “Stop and listen to yourself” very often.
But you must. Right now. Here’s why:
Our soul, higher self, divine goodness~ whatever you may call it~ has a direct line of communication with us. In fact, it wants so badly for us to hear and connect with our physical body that it established THREE lines of communication (just in case you miss the first two)!
Our souls know the “Easy Path,” the ultimate destination of joy, love and peace…what will bring us profound happiness. And it wants us to achieve it.
So it sets out to communicate the steps along the way of the Easy Path, giving us mile markers and clues to help us navigate life. They come in three forms:
- What makes our heart sing?
- What does our gut say?
- What thoughts do we have?
Most of us know what makes our hearts sing (and if you don’t know, please take some time today to identify what they are, you must find your joy!).
We’ve all had gut instincts kick in as well, sometimes we follow it (I knew that was the right thing to do OR, dang, I wish I had listened to my gut).
Thoughts are a bit trickier, because sometimes they are our intuition (there’s a reason the third eye is located on the forehead) and sometimes they are our ego running amok. Here’s how you can tell the difference:
- Ask your heart how it feels. When the thought arrives, ask your heart, “How do you feel about this heart?” Does it bring you joy or peace? Does it feel right? Do you really want or love it? Then it is guidance.
- Does the thought bring panic, anxiety or fear? Then it is your ego. Gut instincts are just a knowing. They don’t trigger negative emotions. Again, that’s just ego.
How many times have you had a nagging thought or a gut feeling that you should:
- Say something?
- Look for a new job?
- Change a habit?
- Find new friends?
When you ignore the navigational signs your heart, gut and thoughts are giving you, your soul WILL find a way to make you listen. I guarantee it. And it is usually bigger, bolder, louder and more disruptive than listening to the gentle nudges you’ve been getting along the way.
Do yourself a favor: Stop, look and listen. Today. Notice what your soul is communicating to you. And don’t be afraid of what it says.
Remember, your soul knows the Easy Path. It knows the end destination to get you to happiness and it won’t let you down. Will there be hiccups along the way? Sure.
But that’s the game of life we signed up for. Go play the game!
