So you have been doing the Steps, you are trying your hardest; yet you are feeling blocked. Are you feeling like giving up? Do you feel like a failure? Are you wondering maybe you just don’t have it? I hear you and I want you to know that there are times that I feel that way too. There are times when I feel disconnected and unable to access my Inner Wisdom, so know you aren’t alone. Over the last three years, there have been days where I was so in~tune with my Inner Wisdom that I couldn’t imagine a day where I would feel disconnected. Then there have been days where I have felt so disconnected that I literally felt empty. Both of these feelings have taught me wonderful lessons. I want to share with you some of the lessons I have learned about why my Inner Wisdom becomes silent.
1.)You Don’t Believe You Can Access Your Inner Wisdom
Most of us grew up in an environment where our Inner Wisdom was ignored or shunned. As women, we were taught all about the 5 Senses but our 6th Sense, was often ignored. This Inner Wisdom was often met with, “stop being silly,” or “quit acting like a baby.” Many women believe that the information that comes from Inner Wisdom is only for “special” women. Sure, there are women who are super in~tune and can pick up on everything, all the time. Typically, those women were born into families that not only honored the Divine within women but also encouraged it. You can become in~tune with your Inner Wisdom. All it takes is for you to set the Intention and Practice.
2.) You Don’t Ask
I believe that there is Divine Wisdom available to us all the time. This Divine Wisdom guides our Inner Wisdom. Often times we are so busy that we forget that our Inner Wisdom is a gift and we don’t ask for help. So make sure that whatever your belief is, you ask for help.
3.) You Are Running Around Like A Crazy Woman
As women we have so many demands on our time that we rarely have time to listen. You are not going to be able to sharpen your skills if you are overextended. Start cutting things that steal your time, i.e. Facebook and TV. Set aside AT LEAST 10 minutes a day to get alone and get silent.
4.) It Is A Whisper
Our world is LOUD! So we think that our Inner Wisdom works that way too. Usually, it is not that way. It is really quiet. I liken it to when the you see a leaf floating, you don’t feel the wind but it is there. It usually starts in this way, really soft and quiet. That is why it is so important for you to get quiet, or you will miss it. Over time and with practice, you get so in~tuned with the whispers, that you will know and use your Inner Wisdom like you do with any other part of your body.
5.) You Aren’t Living Authentically
If after getting quiet and listening, you still feel blocked you might want to check in with yourself. Are you getting enough sleep? Are you being honest in every area of your life? Are you eating right? Are you drinking too much at night? In order for us to access our Inner Wisdom we must be living our lives in a way that is in alignment for us. Each woman is different, so your Truth may differ from someone else’s, that is okay, in fact, HONOR THAT! Our Inner Wisdom is there to lead us to our Highest Good. If you are playing small and not doing the work your Inner Wisdom will know that and it will become silent, not to punish you but rather to teach you.
6.) You’re Afraid of the Information You Might Receive
As women,we are so accustomed to a patriarchal society that we fear our Inner Wisdom and that fear can keep us blocked. You worry that you might offend your God, your family, and etc. Inner Wisdom is a gift that is given to us, to lead us, by a Higher Power. You might get information that you don’t understand; that is okay. I once was told to change lanes in the middle of a 4 lane divided highway. I thought this is stupid, but my Inner Wisdom knew better. Within 5 minutes a car came across those 4 lanes and if we had been in that lane we would have probably all been killed. I have never doubted since.
7.) Don’t Give Up
This Inner Wisdom is a gift from the Divine to you and everyone you love. When you learn to access and listen to your Inner Wisdom you will be amazed at the blessings that will come your way. It is always darkest before the sun comes out. If you haven’t been tuning in for a while it might take you time to hear it. Trust and believe, open the door, Inner Wisdom will come!
Remember, there are no shortcuts to do this. You have to do the work. You have to train your body and mind to know the difference. Just like any professional athlete they have to practice, practice, and practice some more, to become skilled at their sport. You have to do the same. Just like an athlete isn’t great overnight most of us are not great at listening to our Inner Wisdom overnight. I do believe with a heart wide open your Inner Wisdom will start talking to you.
Over the next few weeks we will be talking about how to get in touch with our Inner Wisdom, how we are blocking it, and how we can use our Inner Wisdom to help ourselves, our family, our friends, our family, and ultimately the world.
I know some of you are itching to get started and to take BIGGER and BOLDER steps into harnessing the gift of your Inner Wisdom. If this is you I have tools that can help you.
