The Inner Voice

Commentary by Marilyn Gelfand

We grow up and learn so much along the way. So much of what we learn is through our experiences and from a spiritual perspective, we have certain lessons or opportunities to learn a specific lesson as we explore our lives. We have to remember that no matter where we are, we are part of the Divine order of things. If we are on vacation, or visiting someone in another city, the lessons we have to learn and the support we get, come with us. We are never alone in the spiritual world, and we will get what we need provided for us. This past weekend, I was looking at cars so I could buy a new car, but I was unsure of which one. A friend came over, and said she had the new car reviews coincidentally in her trunk. It was very helpful to read the report.

In big ways and small ways, the key is to recognize what we may see or hear as something important for us and pay attention to our surroundings.

Another important thing to remember is that there is a timing to things. We may be big procrastinators or need to have an answer right now. Those behaviors may be coming out of our own insecurities in dealing with the unknown. We can let go and wait if necessary until we are sure that the answer or decision is the right one. Things may have to fall in place first elsewhere to be able to make a wise decision.

Let's say I want to know if I should sell a stock I own. Things may be happening within the company that can influence that decision. On a conscious level I don't know the internal changes. But, my instincts may be picking up information when the inter-company decisions have been completed. Timing is everything is a really true statement. Our own decisions may be hanging on the decisions of others who we don't even know. Trusting our instincts isn't always easy. The more we do, the more we realize that a lot of good things happen through our inner senses. When we have to let go of control, what is left is the trust in oneself. The more conscious decisions we make, the easier it is to realize that trusting ourselves really is of value.
