Dear Intuitive Seeker –
I always like providing practical, down-to-earth exercises to help you listen to guidance from your inner wisdom.
This is a quick one! Sit quietly and close your eyes. Allow your mind to drift back to a time in your past where you had a burning desire or dream you wanted to fulfill. Perhaps it was to have a family, to own your own home, to have a certain type of career or to obtain a college degree.
Spend a few minutes communing with this younger you. What were your hopes, dreams, and ambitions five, ten, fifteen, twenty years ago? How did you know what you wanted to achieve? How did it feel? What did it look like? How did you experience it in your body? These are all ways your intuition communicates your true passions and purpose.
Allow your thoughts to move forward in time. What became of those hopes and dreams? Did you allow some of them to fall away through discouragement? Did a few of them come true? Perhaps some of your dreams changed along the way as you grew and matured.
Most of our goals do not materialize overnight. They take months, years and sometimes decades to mature and manifest. Look at one of the dreams that you have achieved and look at the process you've gone through to succeed. What have you learned? What are you proud of? What do you wish you had done differently?
Take a slow, deep breath and exhale. Ask your wise inner self, "What new dreams should I pursue?" Wait, listen and reflect on the answer you receive. (Pause)
Then ask, "I want to allow this dream to unfold with joy, ease and peace -- how may I begin?" Pay attention to the answers you receive. Today, take some small steps to go in this new direction. Your intuition is guiding you and wants you to succeed.
