Many of us seek the answers to life’s questions by looking outside of ourselves and trying to glean advice from the people around us. But as each of us is unique, with our own personal histories, our own sense of right and wrong, and our own way of experiencing the world that defines our realities, looking to others for our answers is only partially helpful. The answers to our personal questions can be most often found by looking within. When you realize that you always have access to the part of you that always knows what you need and is meant to act as your inner compass, you can stop searching outside of yourself. If you can learn to hear, trust, and embrace the wisdom that lives within you, you will be able to confidently navigate your life.

Trusting your inner wisdom may be awkward at first, particularly if you grew up around people who taught you to look to others for answers. We each have exclusive access to our inner knowing. All we have to do is remember how to listen. Remember to be patient as you relearn how to hear, receive, and follow your own guidance. If you are unsure about whether following your inner wisdom will prove reliable, you may want to think of a time when you did trust your own knowing and everything worked out. Recall how the answers came to you, how they felt in your body as you considered them, and what happened when you acted upon this guidance. Now, recall a time when you didn’t trust yourself and the results didn’t work out as you had hoped. Trusting your own guidance can help you avoid going against what you instinctively know is right for you.

When you second guess yourself and go against what you know to be your truth, you can easily go off course because you are no longer following your inner compass. By looking inside yourself for the answers to your life’s questions, you are consulting your best guide. Only you can know the how’s and why’s of your life. The answers that you seek can be found when you start answering your own questions.

I receive these inspirational messages daily to my inbox. This particular message sums up for me the mess I've been in for a few years now. I am very pleased that I am returning to that perfect place of residence...where my intuition (I call it discernment which is God-given) is to be trusted. I will just say...back in the arms of Father God and not following the dictates of man is where I have returned. It feels right and I am blessed!

Hi Jac
Sometimes I want to cry still when I think of your anguish over the years but now my prayers are being answered, you are finding your place in God's arms, your place in God's love, your own personal relationship with Him. When you have that it dosn't matter what man says your to do or how to act, listen to your quiet heart and hear hear what God says from within you. Love you Jac
