The Inner Voice

by Marilyn Gelfand

Trusting one’s one instincts whether for matters large or small is no easy task. It would seem that it would be natural, but in our logical world, nothing could be further from the truth. I have been using this method of living for over 25 years, and I realized that I had information that was given to me instinctively and in a few cases, I went with the logic over the instinct. Each time, I realized that my energy could have flowed smoother if I had paid attention to myself.

Then, a few days pass, and I find myself doing it again. Our society’s values are so firmly ingrained that even when one knows better, it is still hard to completely change without the awareness always being present first.

It is important to live with the awareness of our own energy. I always remember to cleanse and protect my spirit because I don’t like how I feel when I am upset and stewing and brewing about it. I remember to keep my own loving energy always turned on because when I shut it down, it feels painful to me. I have love flowing in and through me without an object to direct it to. I am loving because it feels good. Now I am making a conscious effort to follow my instincts always since it makes my life easier.

My instincts are not my emotions or impulses. Those are often reactions to things or people outside myself. It is good to go slowly and really figure out how it feels when one is emotional or impulsive so that when the instincts are providing information to us we can know the difference. Logic for me is based on a thought, but when my instincts are flowing, I just sense that this is what I should do or when an event will take place. If I let logic control me, I discount that sense and say, but it can’t be because of some reason or other, which I later find out, changed for that moment. Logic has its place in taking care of business on Earth, but not always in the decisions that confront us.
