    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 Don't Like the Term Inner Voice..

     It's really about instinct. I've ignored mine in the past and made some MAJOR errors as a result.  They cost me too. Stupid is as.... I listen to my instincts all the time now. They've failed me FAR less often than rational thought :) They are like a muscle, the more...

    Hello? Anyone Home???

    There are so many voices inside of me that I never know which one is talking truth and which one is messing with me...I have tried meditation, and still can't get them all to shut up long enough to know which one I'm supposed to be listening too.  They say practice makes...

    There's So Much Noise- So Quiet The Mind To Listen To Your Inner Voice

    Washing of hands and feet,the face and eyes , the mat picked up and the mobile put in silence mode,with an alarm for fifteen minutes. Preparations done, you walk into that room, cast a look around and go to the special spot , lay out the mat , sit with legs crossed beneath you...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Who Knows Me Better Than Me?

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    My inner voice is so wishy washy and strong at the same time. i get strong impulses and i follow them. Two days or two minutes later i may have the exact opposite impulse and follow that one as well. i do listen to that inner voice but i think sometimes that voice is just all raw...

    Quiet.....

    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 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
