We all have an inner compass, intuition, that gut feeling that you should, or maybe shouldn't do something. How well we follow those instincts are the deciding factor on how things will turn out.
I have found over the years that the biggest instrument to learning and growing was my ability to listen, which I have to confess, took me a while to learn. Why? because the human in me wanted to control the outcome, wanted to do something that I intuitively knew was wrong, but my head controlled my heart.
I had to learn that my heart knew more than my head and to trust my spiritual instincts and to listen to what they were telling me. It doesn't mean I stopped making mistakes, I'm still human, but I make less, I am more confident in who I am and why I have boundaries I won't cross and that they don't have to make sense to anyone but me. It's my journey after all. The freedom that this has given me is immense. I am no longer a habitual people pleaser, I don't care what other people think of me or my decisions, because at the end of the day, only I am walking my path.
It takes practice, it takes commitment, it takes the time to be truly quiet and to listen, to analyse and to accept. But trust me when I tell you, if you can master listening, you'll change your life.
