Do you hear something inside? Your inner voice may be speaking. Your special inner voice is like a feeling, sense, or a knowing trying to guide you to choices that are in your best interest. It urges and prods you to do or not do something, haunting you like a ghost in your heart until you heed its prompting.
Sometimes, you may not be sure whether you’re sensing your true inner voice or whether you’re sensing your own emotions, logic, or other internal interferences. You may even feel torn between your own preferences and your inner voice. Finding your inner voice takes practice as well as trial and error, but the more you listen to it, the more you learn to trust its guidance.
You may have times when you want your inner voice to speak to you, but you hear nothing. When your inner voice doesn’t speak, ask yourself if you’re really listening. If your answer is yes, then any choice you make is acceptable and you don’t need special guidance.
When your inner voice does speak and you don’t listen to it, however, sooner or later, you have regrets. From your regrets you learn lessons, and life is about learning lessons. So whether you do listen or you don’t listen to your inner voice, every choice you make is an opportunity to learn a lesson.
You can choose not only your actions, but also your beliefs. You can choose to believe anything you have ever been told, to question teachings, or to think for yourself. At any time you want, you can choose to change your beliefs.
You are responsible for your choices and in control of them which means you have power. You have a choice of whether you use or misuse your power to help or hurt yourself or others. You may even fear your power, try to avoid it, or believe you don’t have any power, but you are in control of your choices.
If at any time you want help with your choices, ask for internal and external signs, and listen to your inner voice. Signs include the exact people and resources to help you. Your inner voice can guide you to those people and resources and to the actions you need to take to implement your choices.
Throughout life, you’ll face ever-changing situations that include challenges, triumphs, surprises, disappointments, grief, sorrow, and happiness. Simultaneously, you always have your inner voice guiding you. Your inner voice wants you to choose what is best for you. Your ongoing choice is whether or not you choose to listen to it.
