How to make space to hear your inner guidance

We all get messages all day every day from our inner guidance (gut feeling, intuition).  The only problem is, we are far too busy to hear them. We either have our consistent chatter rambling on in our head or when we do take time out, we are generally on our phone, computer, or watching TV, so we can't hear those messages that are trying to guide us to follow our heart.

Whether you believe in inner guidance or not, here is something to consider...when you are busy or electronically connected, you are not letting your mind or your body chill out, and that is when you compound stress, anxiety and overwhelm. It is important for both your mental and physical health to just stop, do nothing, say nothing, think nothing. Even if only a few minutes a day.

Try taking five minutes in the morning and five minutes in the afternoon and see if you can do nothing and think nothing.  Just stop!

Take time to stoke the cat, look at the stars, smell the roses, and just let your mind and 

It will help you unwind so you let go of your busy day. It will help you relax, and it will help you connect within.

Thoughts will still come to you, especially if you don't do this very often. When the thought comes, notice if it is loving and supportive, or if it is busy and pushing for you to take notice. If it is the first, loving and supportive, then let it sink into you, knowing you can come back to it when you are finished. 

If it is a busy thought, let it float on by. Don't try to squash any thoughts and don't get annoyed when you get a thought, because you will. Just let yourself be silent and let it float through you. It takes a little practice, but you will be surprised how quickly you will feel the benefits of doing this for only a few minutes a day.

Check out my journal page 'I Am Silent and Listen'. Watch the little video and download the page by clicking this link. See if you can make time for yourself. It's only a few minutes a day, and your body will thank you for it.

One of the things I do in the morning is to turn my face to the sun, smile and just feel the rays of sunshine fill me up. I'd love to hear any ideas on how you find time to just be silent and listen.

Stay FABuLous
