When half the time you can’t even find your car keys, how the heck are you supposed to know how to find your inner-self?
Every facet of your life experience is created by your Inner Being. Isn’t it time you discovered how to communicate with it?
Since childhood we have learned habits that have discouraged us from trusting our own deepest feelings. We have been trained to do the opposite of what comes natural to us. In fact, most of us were taught to take our direction from an outside authority rather than trusting in our own instincts. As grown-ups, we can take responsibility for finding our inner-self.
Some of the things we can do to tap into the wisdom of our inner self
1. Take a moment with yourself – your inner-self may not be comfortable everywhere and that is the reason often we say ‘I don’t know what I want.’ or ‘I am not able to get an answer’. Go to a place that gives you peace. Maybe on the roof top under the sky, a beach, next to a lake, under a tree, in a dark room, while walking on the road or anywhere. Only you know which place lets you talk freely to yourself.
2. Ask questions – excruciate yourself with all the questions you have in mind. Don’t just ask ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions. Ask why you did something or why you want something. Get answers to questions like what if you had done it differently, how could you not do it, would you do it again etc?
3. Respect your inner-self – there is no use of letting your conscious speak if you do not listen to it. Because if you disobey your inner voice a few times, it stops talking to you. So, start venerating your soul’s voice and next time whenever you try to listen to your heart, actually LISTEN to it.
4. Be honest – while seeking answers, try to recollect even the minuscule detail and accept the reality. Be true and genuine and try to reason with full honesty. You will get the right reasons and the absolute answers.
Learning to listen to your Inner-Self and its messages is a gift, and not a distraction that needs to be medicated away. This relationship with your Inner-Self is potentially the most loving relationship you will ever experience. It will certainly be time well spent.
