Life has a way of asking us questions. Ever noticed that before? For a long time I didn’t know how to listen to the gentle inner whisper asking me to come forward and learn more so I stayed stuck in the same river current until one day I decided to wake up. I feel lucky to have been lead to my mentor, a therapist of over thirty years who chooses to see inner healing and guidance differently from traditional methods. From day one, I longed for the ability to travel within myself and find my own answers. I always leaned away from anyone labeling me or telling me what I should and shouldn’t be doing. I always felt as if I was giving up on my own inner strength if I allowed someone to do the hard work for me.
I remember the first time I was really able to listen deeply to someone telling me her story. I can remember walking away in awe of how much was revealed to me about my own life. In our two hours together, a friend shared her experience with struggling to find her purpose in life. Suddenly, I began to understand the significance of hearing the lessons learned from others rather than being taught to follow a certain plan or read a book that would hold the “answers”. It was that day I knew there was more to my inner interior other than important organs that kept my body functioning. There was an entire world I wanted to know and touch every single day and that time has come with many years of dedicated hard work. Today, I am intrigued to know how others receive guidance along this journey of life.
So, here I am today asking for a little help from you guys. I genuinely want to know how you find your answers to life’s questions. There is no right or wrong answer to my question. Would you rather be taught how to be, act and think as opposed to being led to the inner door we all have within us where all the answers lie behind? Do you believe in this door?
As you may have recognized by now The Inner Interior is all about sharing with you from my direct experience. It is not about telling you what to do or teaching you anything. The reason is simple…I believe every single man and woman has every answer they ever need within them but sometimes they need a little nudge. How do you feel about this? Do you prefer sharing to teaching?
One thing I have learned is that sometimes the answer doesn’t always need to come right away so feel free to sit with this question for as long as you need to.
Peace, be still.
Thank you in advance for being a part of this post.
