    A Voice

    Have you ever been in the middle of a horrible situation, a situation that in terms relative to your own life experiences was as bad as it gets? And perhaps at the height of it all, with your face swollen from crying and buried in the palms of your hands you heard a calm voice. A...

    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...

    My inner voice has always challenged me,

    as if there was another thing inside me. Sometimes it has been quite harsh, but with a little help from others, it has seen that there is no good thing to come out of that. I used to keep it to myself, but over time I have been fortunate to find people who also want to hear...

    It's Funny...

    When you meet someone like you. Its rare, but you can def feel your inner voices talking to each other. I don't know how to explain it really, but its almost like you have a connection with them without even knowing them. Or something like that lol

    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...

    once, wished all the races would just get along.

    Then I pondered the horror of groupthink. We need to check each other. Uchecked group think has brought us many tragedies. Slavery, holocaust, religious wars, the space program--just kidding about the space program :-). We should learn to agree to disagree without bloodshed...

    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...

    I feel like my inner voice is GOD.

    One time I was is sitting somewhere, and the voice said 'get up'. I ignored it, and then I wished I didn't. A huge dog, came running to where I was sitting. It was not only up to my waist, but it was thick as well. His owner didn't have him on the leash, and the dog started...

    If someone is doing something wrong to you,

    it doesn't help anyone to keep it bottled up inside. Let the person know in a respectful way they they hurt you in whatever way. Be specific, be clear, and be confident. People will always respect you if you show you aren't afraid to stand up for yourself. Sometimes people...

    There was a point several years back

    when I used to think just blocking out any thoughts and gut feelings was okay, even dare I say it more grown up but I found it just left my heart frozen. Since exploring rather more of my child-like self, I find myself more finding time to sit quietly and tune into what I am...

    Let me explain. I'll be 50 in a few months and according to most women I encounter, I do not look my age. HOWEVER, I do sport a goatee and the gray hair has taken over as the majority! I'm told that I look sexy, distinguish looking, etc. But the kicker here is that these are...

    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...

    For almost a year my gut was saying something

    was off, so I got creative and yes I was so dead on it scared the hell out of me. Now that I know the truth I have the upper hand. My husband has come up with some dumb answers and all I can hear my head tell me is "if the answer is confusing then the truth is missing".

    I've always felt an internal conflict

    when my heart and my brain are not aligned. To make things a little more complicated, I've had to learn exactly the difference between the strength of my instinct and my heart's deep desires. Ergo, on paper (in theory), I firstly rationally trace the path I should follow and...

    There is a small still voice inside of me that whispers truth.  It calms and encourages me.  It keeps me safe from harm. When I am listening.

    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.

    One thing that really changed my life was the

    moment I started to train myself to trust my gut feeling. Your subconscious mind knows way more than you think you know. Your "gut feeling" is your subconscious mind trying to tell you something, trust it, you'll be right 99.99% of the time. My life has never been the same since...

    Sometimes I feel like a lonely rowboat floating

    on a vast ocean. It isn't a sad feeling, it's peaceful to look around and to see no shore. I can go in any direction and find something unexpected. I am the most connected to myself and the universe in those moments of complete freedom and endless possibility.

    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'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...

    for a long time and I'm okay with that. I didn't think it was possible for me to open my heart up and find someone as caring as you, but I don't see you going anywhere, and I've never seen myself as that person who could maybe spend their life with someone. But today I realized...
