Recognizing and Engaging Spiritual Energy
Making time and space to move into the silence of the inner world (yes, it’s there behind the noise in our heads!) and learning to “hang out” there helps to develop a relationship with Universal/Higher Self/Source energy. Practice makes this stronger and you will be gifted with inspiration and the motivation to begin or to follow through with your goals, dreams and desires.
Being in truly in touch (as opposed to ego fabrication of experience) with our spiritual nature provides uncommon support, guidance and direction for movement on our life path; we are co-creators with our soul. If we wander too far from our spiritual connection, we will try to create solely from the will and ego, and that is laced with struggle and does not serve us very well.
Our spirit Self feels like inspiration or intuition. It is often the initial felt sense of rightness (or wrongness) about a person, place or decision.
We can start to invite our spiritual Self to flex its muscles and grow by noticing how things feel to us.
Choices That Enliven You
When you face a choice or need to make a decision, relax, become deeply quiet and try it out in your mind and see how it makes you feel. Disengage your thinking mind: don’t analyze or evaluate, let go of your lists of pros and cons that belong in another part of your decision-making process.
For now simply get a feeling for how a certain thing feels to that intangible part of you. There are thousands of possibilities in our lives. What truly feels right to you? Notice how your body responds to imagined outcomes. What feels right? What feels good? Try feeling various possibilities. Note the ones that open you and bring you joy. There is valuable information there.
