Hearing the Inner VoiceMay 5, 2011
A friend of mine told me about a method she had recently experienced for hearing her inner voice, or as she referred to it, the voice of God. We sat down facing each other and she asked me a series of three questions, to which I was to just ‘hear” the first thing that came to me. I was both surprised, and affirmed by the answer that came immediately to each question. The first question was:
What game do you want to play with me?
The immediate response was Psychic Cards. And after the response came, I laughed, because it was as though I was asking Spirit to play a game with me, and it was more than willing to comply! The energy around the question wasn’t heavy, it was light and sparkly.
The second question was:
One of my all-time favorite questions! And the immediate answer was, It’s your calling. Wow. The answer felt affirming. It’s a message I’ve been getting for quite some time, and one on which I’ve been acting. Still. To “hear” that answer with such immediacy told me the message has sunk into me. I’m not fighting it anymore.
The last question was:
Why do you love most about me?
The immediate response was, Your compassion and empathy.
Answers without thought – first impressions – first instincts – hearing the inner voice – hearing the voice of Spirit, whatever you might want to call the things I got from the game, there was a consistent message. I’m on the right path, and I believe in the path.
I think this series of questions could easily work sitting in front of a mirror and asking them to yourself out loud – especially if you do it in the spirit of a game, rather than with the seriousness of an “exercise” or “assignment.” If you don’t think you can maintain the levity doing it on your own, drag a good friend into the game, and see what you both come up with. Then tell us what you’re thoughts are about it, even if you don’t want to share your specific answers.
