Connect to your higher-self
One of the absolute greatest gifts you can offer yourself is quiet time every day to go inward. We live in a very fast-paced world that is incredibly obsessed with the external. What other people are doing, what other people think, what other people say, our kids, our pets, our friends, our family. Being a human in the world, connected to the world and to others is beautiful, but we easily get off-balance when we don't connect inward.
So, how do you do it?
Connect to your body.
Now, what does that look like?
That looks like taking 15-20 minutes every day, placing one hand on your heart, one hand on your womb or your low belly, closing your eyes, and getting still and quiet. Once we turn our attention inward, we can start to turn down the thinking brain. And when we turn down the thinking brain, we can start to listen to what is deep within us - our highest self.
Your highest self is your best teacher. It is 100% trustworthy. You just have to learn to quiet the mind and be still long enough to hear it. It's about listening, not trying to control. And your body will help you with this.
If you have a deep burning question, something you are really confused about, or unsure of, ask the question internally, and feel how your body responds. If it contracts, feels heavy, if there is a sinking feeling in your heart, the answer is NO!
If you feel light, your breath is flowing easily and there is a sense of peace, the answer is YES.
Everyone is intuitive, and everyone has a higher-self that a greater source of wisdom than any friend, therapist, or family member will ever be.
Take the time for yourself to connect with this highest wisdom inside of you. It will always lead you to your highest purpose and your best self.
When we know that we should or shouldn't do something deep within our hearts, and we ignore this inner knowing, that's when our lives can start to feel chaotic, hard, stressful, and out of whack. Your higher-self will never lead you astray. You just have to make the time and create the space to be able to listen.
