In my Law of Attraction courses, I teach a lot about learning to trust that everything is on track for our receiving what we most want. The secret to mastering trust in the unfolding of our lives comes from learning to trust ourselves. To learn to trust ourselves, we have to have a practice that allows us to tune in, to quiet our mind enough so that we can actually hear our inner guidance. After we hear it, then we must trust what we receive. When we disregard that voice inside that knows, we are not trusting ourselves.
I see it so often in my work: people know but they don’t listen. They ask, “Should I marry this man? I’m just not sure.” Or “Should I take this job?” The answer is in the asking. There must be a voice saying, “no”, or they wouldn’t be questioning moving forward in the relationship or the job. If we are saying YES to a partner, it should be a resounding yes that we say with all our heart and soul, not a “yes” tinged with hesitancy that is really a “no” that we won’t allow ourselves to acknowledge.
There is always that little voice inside you that knows. When we get in confusion about anything, it’s because we are not tuned into that voice. Sometimes it’s just that we really don’t want to acknowledge the truth that we know. This is the denial of our inner voice. Other times it may be that we just won’t be quiet enough to hear it. Our sixth sense is real, and can naturally perceive and know things that our logical minds cannot. It is that aspect of your soul that is connected to the Field, the Divine, that is privy to all sorts of information and resources that you in your particle self are not. This voice will guide you to your heart’s desire, it will forewarn you, but you can only hear it if you are taking the time to listen.
The key is to practice meditation or quiet reflective time daily to tune into that guidance on a regular basis and then listen to it every time. Using a heart meditation is very effective since being in our heart makes us more connected and more open to receive guidance. The more you practice meditation and/or quiet reflection, the easier it will be to tune in and receive guidance not just while you’re in meditation but all the time. And the more you learn to trust your inner voice and guidance, the clearer the messages from your intuitive self become.
A SIMPLE HEART MEDITATION YOU CAN USE TO OPEN YOUR HEART:
As you sit to meditate focus on the breath. Inhale and exhale deeply for a few breaths. Allow your shoulders to relax away from your ears. Relax your jaw and your tongue. Start to breathe imagining the breath coming in through the third chakra, located at the upper abdomen (solar plexus) and feel any tension there. Exhale, imagining the breath coming out through the heart chakra–located in the center of the breast bone–opening the heart.
Keep that focus on the breath, inhaling each time feeling any tension in your third chakra and on the exhale, releasing the tension and imagining the heart chakra opening more and more with each exhale.
As you do this meditation you should be able to open your heart and get into a state of love and compassion. Once you’re in this state, allow answers and guidance to emerge naturally. You may, if you wish, begin your meditation by asking for guidance if there is something specific you are wanting to be clear about.
In my own life, I was guided to my husband, the love of my life, because I asked, “What’s next?” when I was closing my business years ago. The answer was “medical sales,” something I had no background in at all. But I knew to listen to the guidance and went onto Career Builder, applied for four jobs, interviewed with three, got job offers from two, one of which was my husband, who knew immediately I was the love of his life. We had only had one phone conversation and he knew that he had to hire me. His assistant tried to get him to consider the many applicants with medical background. But he interviewed no one else for the position. He was attuned and listening to his inner guidance too.
Within two months of working together, we were together! It was not about “the job” as I only did that for a short time before I began my coaching training. It was about the Divine leading both of us to each other.
You will be astounded at how powerful it is and what you can manifest with effortless effort when you live this way. It is this connection with our own heart and to the Divine that truly allows us to listen and hear our inner voice and guidance. If you regularly sit with this simple meditation, you will become attuned to all sorts of information that you would otherwise miss. You will at times not know exactly why you have to go to a particular place or avoid a particular person. You will just know. When we live attuned to our inner voice and trusting our inner guidance, everything becomes easier. We can more easily attract what we need into our lives and live with more peace and joy. We stay out of confusion and indecisiveness because we know how to tune in and listen.
My challenge for you is to do this heart meditation every day for a month and watch your connection to your own inner guidance increase. Watch as you begin to trust your own inner voice more and more. I guarantee you won’t want to stop after 30 days.
The Field really is on our side; all we have to do is tune in and listen! Have a wonderful amazing week!
