What if you already have the answer in you? What if you are just looking in the wrong places? What if there was a way to find the answers that are tailor made for you?
We all have the answers we need somewhere inside of us. We each have an internal guidance system, we just don’t use it. This system is just buried underneath stress, the expectations of others and society, pressures we put on ourselves, not to mention the feelings of guilt and shame we hang onto. All of those things interfere with our internal system and cloud our vision, muffle our hearing and ultimately take us off our path.
So, how do we go beyond the chatter and stories of the mind? Pause and ask questions. Questions act to disrupt the chatter and pull you out of states of worry, frustration and confusion. They shift you into a place of pure curiosity, honesty and discovery. This shift places us beyond the mind and into a space where we find all of the answers that line up with who we are and inspire us into action.
Next time you find yourself stuck, stressed or just a little frustrated, just pause for a moment. Take yourself away from the situation by taking a short walk, go to the bathroom or turn on some music. A change in environment helps to accelerate the shift and creates space for the honest answers to come through. Once you feel calmer, you can begin to ask questions. You will find your answers coming from a different place. If the situation has been going on for a long time a brief walk or pause may not give enough space. You may need a day or two before the space is there for you to uncover the answers. It is important that you not force the answer. Trust the answer is there and it will reveal itself.
As you practice pausing then asking, you will find it easier and easier to access your internal guidance system. You will find your life in flow and see life is truly beyond the thoughts and stories of your mind.
