A woman’s husband of 25 years lay dying and she makes a plea. She prays that he stays with her, even if he were in a wheelchair or if he needed 24-hour care. Just let him live, she prayed.
Then she heard a quiet voice in her head say “No.” She was so shocked she had to repeat it in her own voice “No?” And it said it again, “No.” A feeling of great calm came over her. She knew it was his time and that somehow, she and her three school age children would be alright.
A few days after he had died, she was lying in bed unable to sleep and she found herself praying, What am I going to do now? I’ve been a stay at home mom; I’ve home schooled the kids but what can I do to support us all? She didn’t hear a voice this time but instead, a strong thought entered her mind: I will make a new life for you.
She now has another wonderful husband and a life so different and yet very fulfilling. She heard the inner voice and she trusted it.
Her inner voice or her intuition guided her when she needed direction, just as your inner voice can guide you. We all need wisdom and the best possible guidance is within you, just as it was with this woman at the bedside of her dying husband.
It is with you every second of the day, during good times and bad. It’s that guardian angel you’ve always wanted, guiding you where to go, what to do, even what to say. It is a part of you that transcends desire and attachment, that sees the whole picture and what is good for all concerned. It is ultimate wisdom, peace, joy and love. It is our connection to the soul.
As a society, we have lost our soul connection in almost every aspect of life. Thousands of years ago, people were more in tune with the rhythms of Nature and knew how much they depended on Spirit for sustenance. As we have become more knowledgeable and inventions have made our lives more secure in some ways, we have stopped feeling so dependent on Nature and Spirit and lost that priceless relationship with it.
It is past time to rejoin that precious part of you. Nothing happens without the help of Spirit. Your spark of your Truth Known by Many Names--God, Jesus, Allah, Buddha Nature, Divine Mother, etc, lives inside you, ready to guide you as long as you believe it is there and you learn to trust it.
