Making a commitment to intuition is like building a nest inside yourself, where you can still your thoughts and feel at home inside yourself. Walking on the beach one day, that image came to me and it made me smile. Stick by stick, I build my nest high up in the redwood tree of my soul. Like an eagle, I fly to that nest and sit quietly on a daily basis. There, my perspective is broader; my thoughts are quieter and I’m more receptive to inner guidance.
We all need a place to go inside ourselves where our thoughts settle, where we can nourish that connection with the still, quiet voice of wisdom. Are you ready to tune into the call of your deeper heart and embrace the wisdom the soul holds for you? Then it’s time to build that home inside yourself.
How could you begin to make that commitment to yourself? Would it be in the form of a prayer? Help me listen to the voice of wisdom. Or an affirmation—Every day I listen to the wisdom within and become more and more receptive to it. It is with me every step of the way.
If you choose an affirmation, make sure you can feel the truth in it. If not, change the wording and see if that helps. Imagine or remember what it is like to be connected to this part of you and feel it while you say the affirmation.
Would a visualization help you--like with my nest high in the redwood? Would the prayer or affirmation or visualization be constant? Would you do it in the morning and the evening? Would you look back on the day and see how your intuition tried to communicate with you, if you listened and, if not, what stopped you from listening? Would you keep track in a journal what you are discovering about this exciting part of you and how it tends to communicate to you? Do you have intuitive dreams that reveal solutions to problems or information about situations and people? Do you get a feeling in your heart, gut, or an opening in the mind? Are the thoughts quiet or loud? Would you pay attention to your breath to keep you calm and receptive? Would you meditate more to build that awareness and relationship with the divine within you?
Every day in subtle ways the still, small voice invites us to step away from ego consciousness and enter the Light of Divine understanding. Once you make the commitment and start paying attention, it is actually very simple. If you relax the body and find a way to quiet the mind, the still, small voice will come. Trust that this soul connection is just waiting for you to listen and be ready for its whisperings.
