Sometimes we forget to listen to the answers that are already sitting quietly within us. Your wisdom is within you.
Your wisdom is within
We spend a lot of time seeking answers all around us. From the internet and the opinions of other people. When we face challenges, our first thought might be, what have others done in this situation?
Yet there is a powerful simplicity to checking in to your own intuition. Peace, joy, wisdom, love – they are all deep within you. Access them as they arise in you.
Give yourself daily moments of stillness, and in this way, you build a connection with your own self so that you don’t always need to search outside for answers.
‘Deep inside our consciousness is an oasis of peace. This is the molten core of the soul, but it is not hot, it is cool. Not passive, but a source of inner power to fuel our mind and intellect, so that we can create powerful thoughts and make accurate decisions. If you can learn to go to this centre, peace will be your companion, positivity your partner …’
If wisdom is within, how do I contact it?
Be still. Breathe deeply into your abdomen and with a sense of openness, notice how you feel.
At first, you’ll be inside your mind where it’s busy. Acknowledge those busy thoughts, and then guide your focus away from the mind and onto how your body feels:
‘The next time you sense a strong emotion, take some time to put a finger on exactly what you’re feeling. Get quiet, turn inward, and just listen …’
This isn’t the same as sitting and problem solving, it’s more about letting all the thinking flow through. And deeply feel how the cells of your body feel. Sense into what arises.
And while you sit in this stillness, the space opens up to inspiration.
‘The stomach doesn’t work visually but viscerally … if listened to carefully, gives reliable guidance. It ties itself in knots when you’re lying, and tells you what to do even before you have worked out why that should be right … The head tells you what could be, the stomach tells you what is.’
Tune in and trust yourself because your wisdom is within!
