Connecting With Inner Guidance – Does It Have To Be A Daily Practice?

I can honestly say that the summer just past was by far the best summer of my life. I had the good fortune of being offered the opportunity to spend the summer house- and cat-sitting for a friend in the beautiful city of Toulouse in the south of France. For the first time in my life, bishamconsulting I am not tied to a geographic “job” location, so I was able to leap at the opportunity. The icing on the cake, however, was what I learned about myself during this eventful stay.

My “normal” life in the UK consists of a fairly structured daily routine and part of this routine is taking a quiet time out to connect with Inner Guidance pannimanagement (or Higher Self, if you prefer). This connection carries over into daily life and, more and more, I find that I can hear my guidance when I need to, without having to stop and “meditate” in order to access it. Sometimes I can even be barreling down a negative thought or conversation path and my Guidance will come in and say, “Um, what are you doing?”

“I’ve got this managed,” I thought. I don’t need to take time out to get quiet and connect because I AM connected. Dazzled by all the new things to do and see in Toulouse, I left my meditation practice back in the UK and allowed spontaneity to rule. Did it work? Well, sort of, but not well enough.

As with everything in life, shorpnews it starts with the intention. It’s important to be clear about what it is you gain from the quiet time out. If the intention is to shut the world out for those few minutes every day because life is busy, painful and annoying and you need that time to recalibrate and find balance, then, of course, you will want to do it every day. If, however, your intention is to connect with Source to receive guidance and understanding regarding your life experience, then, yes, I believe this can become so fluid that you no longer need to set aside a separate quiet time each day for it. It will begin to come so naturally that you can receive guidance at any moment no matter where you are.

My own experience demonstrated to me that I do need the time out, viraltechnolgy not so much to establish connection (that I have) but to remind myself to be intentional about listening and living. When you live in spontaneity, it can be easy to get swept along in any passing current and guess what happens then: you may end up in a current you hadn’t intended and that you aren’t enjoying. If you haven’t been deliberately connecting, it is at these times that you can get knocked off your emotional high. At these down times, connecting can be more difficult because you have more “mind noise” to deal with. moderntimesgazette

The moral of the story? I learned that I need to make that time to connect. I need to be deliberate in my desire for constant guidance. Not because I am “unconnected” if I don’t, but because I am “unintentional” about it. Next time I travel, I am bringing my meditation practice with me! ooceanofgames
