    Built In GPS System

    I had no idea that the inner voice we all have is a built in GPS System. When we listen to this inner voice it will guide us out of harms way. And if we really pay attention and use the rest of the system it will take us to a better life as well. As we go through life and we...

    People often say "If only I had listened to my

    intuition." Never have I heard anyone say "If only I had ignored my intuition." Intuition is the voice of our inner selves... The part of ourselves in tune with all around us. It is the clear vision and expression of what is real and true... The Inner SatNav of our...

    I Listen

    I listen to my inner voice because they are from the spirits pointing on the right path. For example, how I met John, It was at a party over 30 years ago, it was held in a basement. I was thinner then and fitter and wore hot pants and a tank top(all the rage then). A little...

    I need to do this more often in moments of

    doubt. My emotions and behaviour, based on the past, are causing me to react and think in a way I don't need or want anymore. I need to listen more to my recent inner voice. Convince myself about what I can do, what I achieved and the beautiful person I am. That's just so hard...

    "Shasta Daises and Gardeners" If you restrain

    the roots of a daisy, what happens? You stunt a wild flower's growth. If you cultivate the soil around it, provide it the right climate, allow plenty of space, nourish it, and remove the weeds--a strong flower lifts her head towards the sun. Through its strength another...

    As we sit and talk, I notice how still I am.

    I realize that I'm listening with my inner ear, all of its antennas activated. So I hear his insecurity and his disappointment, his determination to get as much out of this separation arrangement as possible, especially in monetary terms. His focus is on security and money, to...

    This Is a Goal For Me

    I listen to it, I feel it is right and know that it is what I should follow. Yet I then share it and let others stamp upon it with their heavy weapons of 'common sense' and 'practicality'. I silence my soul and my heart in favour of the voices of the brain which are often not my...

    There is much to feminine intuition.

    Having a little gypsy blood in my veins amplifies this. I listen to the voice from my soul, and act on its counsel. I believe every woman should.

    Although these days we argue a lot,

    the little voice thinks he knows better than me but I'll prove it wrong. Sometimes I even have full conversations with my inner monologue, it's actually pretty interesting.

    I Will Never Ignore My Inner Voice Again

    Since I was very young I had to learn and listen to my inner voice.   My inner voice was always on alert for my protection.  When I grew up we were always walking on egg-shells.  And, if you tred too hard, you knew it and paid for it quickly.  Have you ever had to go to...

    I've been doing this a lot more lately.

    I've discovered that it's beneficial to search your soul before trying to do something out of frustration only to see it fail miserably. There's power to listening to that small inner voice. You have to stay still enough to hear it. Many times you may hear nothing. All that...

    It's never failed me.

    Even if sometimes it's not based on any solid form of logic at least I can be fully accountable for any outcome that arises from choosing to listen to it (whether bad or good) and therefore can never have regrets regardless of that outcome.
