When we are ready to stop our self-destructive cycles, we choose to prioritize our wellbeing and finally listen to the voice inside of us that has been trying to guide us in that direction all along. This means strengthening our intuition and strengthening our connection to our higher power and its power within us. Listening to our inner voice is so important for our healing.
One way to listen for it and recognize it is to feel a connection to our hearts and spirits. Our inner voice is our higher power speaking through us. We will feel instinctively when it’s speaking to us because it will feel like a higher truth, a reflection of our best self. It will carry with it love, compassion and understanding. It will feel separate and different from the fearful thoughts of the limiting beliefs stored in our subconscious minds. It will feel like a strong, resonant energy directing us in a positive, self-loving direction. Sometimes we can differentiate our intuition from our fears because the latter tend to deplete our energy while our inner voice often energizes us. It provides clarity, guidance and strength, while our fears make us feel confused, overwhelmed, sad and afraid. It is filled with the light of our higher power, and that light is within us no matter how much we might diminish it with our addictive thoughts and behaviors.
Our intuition is strengthened every time we practice listening for it. Meditation helps with this process immensely. It allows us to quiet all the conflicting, overwhelming, distracting noise of our ego minds so that we can more easily listen for the truth of our hearts and spirits. Our inner voice is associated with our third eye chakra, located between and slightly above our two eyes. Try imagining there is an actual eye located in this spot, and visualize it opening. You can also try visualizing healing light emanating from your third eye and extending to the rest of your being, as well as entering your third eye from your higher power. These visualization exercises can help us to open our third eye which is often closed due to all the emotional and psychological blockages we experience. The more we meditate and learn to quiet our minds, the stronger our inner voice becomes.
We also strengthen our intuition when we choose to follow the messages it is sending us. All too often we ignore this important guidance, but every time we choose to follow it instead, it grows stronger and clearer. With time, hearing our intuition with clarity and following it decisively becomes second nature.
