Your inner life has the power to heal you. It has the ability to give you answers, to direct and to guide you. All you have to do is learn to listen and interpret.
How to listen to your inner voice
You hear your inner voice all the time. It’s the voice you seem to hear in your head. It’s the full-blown picture you see in your mind. It’s the intuitive nudge you follow and find is correct.
You can take specific steps to access your inner life, those voices within the wise part of you, your All–That–Is.
Begin with breathing
Sit in a quiet place and simply begin to follow your breath. When I do this, I find myself yawning, taking in large amounts of air and in the process, relaxing more deepening into the moment. Focusing on your breathing is a powerful way to shift your focus from outer to inner.
You may call it meditation or journeying. It’s when you totally zone out, when you fully immerse yourself in some task. It’s your dreams that help you sort out your life.
For me, shamanic journeying is the most powerful method of talking to the inner self that I’ve found so far.
Is it your imagination? From our body suits we call it that. I believe that as we’re all one energy, when we move beyond our body suits into our invisible self we experience a whole new “population” of helping spirits, along with visions and dream experiences that we are to interpret.
These are all subtle nudges and invitations from the Nowhere That We Came From that we can learn to interpret and apply to our human body suit life.
All we have to do is ask
I wanted to release the unknown “cause” of the appearance of an age-related deterioration in my eyes. I have no idea if it’s a past life or a lesson I am to learn in this lifetime but I wanted to do my part in helping it reverse by releasing whatever it is I need to release.
So I went within and was shown a very powerful process. I’ve used it many times.
Another time I asked to be shown a process that would allow me to absorb and accept what I needed in my life at the moment. Again, in my inner life I was shown a very powerful process and at its completion felt very peaceful and balanced inside.
This is inner work. All you have to do is go within and ask.
Your helping spirits will appear in many forms
Because you are limited by your body suit, your inner life will probably offer you some recognizable shapes – power animals, spirit guides, talking trees and rocks, etc. But don’t limit yourself by what you know about those omens and symbols on the physical plane. Ask them what they bring to you and learn to see them as metaphors with a message for you.
A fellow shaman journeyed for me and my sight and found a sighthound. I never knew that was a category. This one happened to be a greyhound, a breed I’ve never been drawn to, but now, in my inner journeys, I keep her with me often.
You’ll find guides from the past and the future if you but ask. You’ll get hunches and sudden insights and simple knowing when you open to it.
This is your inner life talking and it’s very, very powerful.
Ask and then listen. Question and then evaluate the response. Interpret the unseen nudges and know that are always present.
Finding the power of your inner life is as simple as being still to listen.
