Aligning with the Inner Self

 

Our perception expands when we’re connected. Colors become brighter, love grows more intense, and opportunity beckons. Everything vibrates on a different rhythm. The universe responds, and life changes its course.

Inner connection leads to universal truths. It’s the best way of creating harmony and finding truth when the world moves through change.

Here are a few tips for finding more of your inner connection:

  1. Focus on the beauty. Notice the variations of the sky, the touch of the wind, the color of the earth, the song of the birds, or the motion of the flowers. Watching and observing act to open the heart, allowing the inner voice (intuition) to speak.
  2. Meditate daily—and focus on your inner presence to find your way. Like a light in the darkness, it shines and points out the right direction. Sometimes, it’s only a step, but it eventually becomes a path.
  3. Release the noise. The part of you, which is not real, speaks in a loud voice. Let go of the roar. Observe whenever possible. Listen for the quiet, soft voice.
  4. Engage the imagination. (Imagination is part of creating your reality.) Imagine the next few hours as “better.” Imagine having an incredible connection with your inner self. Imagine something new and different.
  5. Remember the love. Send love to yourself. (Try pink light if it feels difficult.) Think of the people who love you, the animals that fall at your feet, and how love looks when reflected on the face of a “beloved.” (The whole universe is based on love; it’s the light that dances with matter.)
  6. Trust and move into the unknown. It’s a human tendency to repeat the “known.” Sometimes, the unknown contains gestalt answers—insights, which can totally change your perception. It’s okay not to know. Embrace it. (The universe is on your side.)
  7. Watch the energy. Energy changes in accordance with our moods and thoughts. It alters in the presence of different people and situations. It can reflect our past, or it can change in a few seconds and present a new paradigm. Energy accumulates through right action and meditation. Listen to your inner guidance. Take the small steps, which seem inconsequential. (Barbara Brennan related a message from her guides to remove a large stick from the path behind her house. Everything turned haywire until she cleared the path.) Small steps accumulate and eventually tilt the balance into greater consciousness, power, and awareness.
  8. Your inner self is a reflection of the soft, quiet voice, the beauty of nature, and the wonderful realities that you imagine.
  9. Trust the process. Inner work will eventually lead to a higher, happier state of being.

Follow Your Path

Following your inner path is part of awakening. You find the path by listening to your heart. The heart knows your deepest desires. It brings connection to the inner self.

All positive intuition comes from the heart and awakening. You can learn 1,000 techniques, but the heart leads the way. It knows what you love—and how to take you there. It receives a broadcast from the universe, which is translated through the senses and emotions. When you listen to the heart, you are connected at the right time and in the right way.

All true journeys lead to the inner self. Everything else is simply a diversion. It won’t bring satisfaction, joy, or fulfillment.

Meditation is the best way of listening. Visualization is the best way of creating the next step on your path. (Everything in the universe responds to visuals and feelings; it’s how we create experiences in the physical world.) Visualization plus positive feelings can create rapid change. (If you can’t visualize, find an image. Look at it and develop a positive, flowing feeling.)

Part of the path is learning about the duality of life. You learn what and who brings alignment with the heart. These experiences teach about energy, boundaries, and how to live your life—as well as speaking your truth. Everything is energy, and it’s how you learn to read it.

Courage is required on the path of the heart. You move through fear and limitation to become more of who you truly are. In the big picture, it teaches you to see the larger part of yourself—and to align with it.  It’s how you travel to your inner self.

Through this process, you learn practices of connection. You learn to listen to your heart, and you learn how to find the light, which illuminates your journey.

A Simple Path

My pursuits narrow as I travel the spiritual path, and I often leave favored diversions behind.  Sometimes, I’d rather hear the mountains roar or alter the landscape of my garden, than travel outwardly into the world, where life overflows with activity. Once I loved movies and novels, but now the television sits without cable, and most works of fiction lie undisturbed.  Admittedly, the symphony or an art exhibit might tempt me, but my meditation practice continues to lead toward “stillness.”

Happiness comes to me through the flight of the hawk, the movement of the trees or the words used in this forum. My friends and family bring love, the elusive state of fulfillment — and I find my desires in the outer world become more elusive. The intrinsic values of life — a hug, the warmth of a friend, the illumination of a spiritual text, or the flash of light found in a child’s aura — bring great pleasure. All of these fleeting experiences possess the ring of authenticity.

My journey leads toward the most simple pursuits, for they elicit the insights of my soul.
