When our mind is cluttered with false beliefs, it becomes nearly impossible to feel confident about our intuition. People will still have insights and experience guidance, but if they’re mostly fearful, they won’t trust it. They can’t tell the difference between ego and intuition because there’s no stillness in their awareness. Their inner life is a cacophony.
I’ve had many folks ask me over the years “How do I hear the voice of God? How do I know if it’s intuition or ego?” This is such an important and valuable question to ask! The answer is, the ego will always have a fear-based conversation, the ego voice has attitude and judgment in it. Whereas the voice of the Higher Holy Spirit Self, our Guides and Angels are usually devoid of the attitude of any kind. It can sometimes feel insistent and strong, but it doesn’t ever feel opinionated.
So often if we want to validate our opinions we’ll be confused about the guidance, intuition, and insight we’re receiving. If we’re truly interested in hearing the guidance then we simply relax into the listening. You can open your mind to whatever it is – allow it to at least land in your mind and ripple out into your awareness before you give it the heave-ho!
On MANY occasions I’ve been in a counseling or teaching situation with someone and I get very strong guidance from that person’s guides and angels of what they’d like me to tell the person. Sometimes it feels like the Angels are so “loud” and strong, but it’s really more than they are clear and I’m willing to listen and the person they have a message for has not been honoring the guidance they’re getting. When that is the case, so often, when I speak the guidance the person says “I get that thought all of the time! Every day! For years now!” This has been my experience countless times.
I have had to learn not to go into judgment and think “they SHOULD listen! They SHOULD act on their guidance.” My opinion isn’t helpful to anyone. I do the best I can to share the guidance over and over again in several ways and as often as not, the person will say “I don’t believe it” or “I don’t trust it” or “I’m too afraid to follow that” or “I don’t want to do that.”
Look into your heart and mind and see if you can discover the place where you have been hearing the message clearly, but you have been ignoring the guidance.
You can cultivate the willingness to hear with new ears.
If you won’t take the steps that will lead to your happiness, no matter how many times you hear the message, then it’s best to STOP COMPLAINING that you’re not happy, because that only intensifies the suffering. Accept that you’re not willing or ready, but that you will be and in the meantime avoid looking to blame others for your unhappiness. This practice alone will noticeably increase your peace.
The amazing life of Love and Joy that is everyone’s destiny is only going to be experienced by those who are willing to listen and follow.
When we live in the muck and mire of our own opinions we’re eliminating our possibility for happiness. There’s no other way to peace. Peace is the way.
When feeling stuck, resistant, reluctant, or upset, I learned to ask myself, “can you at least be more willing to be a little more willing?” The answer was almost always, yes.
That little bit of willingness profoundly changed my life!
Are you willing to be a little bit more willing to recognize the loving choices and hear the voice for God?
