Dear Readers, what is your internal guidance system saying to you?
I found this question difficult to answer because I was not properly introduced to my internal guidance system. Oh, I know about the feelings of being in a situation of discomfort. I know about the mistakes of not listening to that voice in my head that says, “Don’t do it this is a bad idea.” Or ignoring that feeling when you know it’s going to be a bad day, but you go into the office and it turns out to be the worst day of the week. So, if the question is referring to the inner voice or that gut feeling that we often ignore than yes, I do know something about my internal guidance system.
How much time do you spend bonding with your internal guidance system? Do you often find yourself acting on feelings instead of waiting, thinking, praying, and then listening? If you like me I talk myself out of things that I should have listened when my internal guidance system was saying “danger, danger.” Some of the reasons why we ignore the warning voice and tugs of our internal guidance system. Because of the noise and chaos around us it drowns out our inner voice. We don’t spend enough time developing the six sense we need when the voices of our internal guidance system are in full alert. I know that this may sound corny, but if we learn to become one with our internal guidance system this voice won’t seem foreign. The distractions of life and chatter from other people’s opinions may be the reason why we doubt what our internal guidance system because we don’t believe that its leading us in the right direction. Sooner than later we often discover that we are wrong not to follow our internal guidance when we are told to run away from wrong decisions and rushed judgments.
We can call this voice whatever fits God, the universe, instincts, but if you stay too busy and become wrapped up in the distraction of life, we can become disconnected from our internal guidance system. We need the reassurance of that voice because we don’t always have the answers. Be mindful to stop get quiet and talk to your internal guidance system. You may be surprised about what you hear.

Listening is definitely critical to our success in life. Both to Holy Spirit guidance and to others. I love that saying, “God gave us 2 ears and one mouth – listen twice as much (or more) than you talk!”
The times in my life where I made hasty decisions based on emotion, turned out terribly. Eventually, it will all come out in the wash but avoiding the pain and heartache would’ve been much better. Sometimes we don’t listen because we really don’t want an answer. We’d rather do what it is that we want to do. (not good!)
Very wise post. Keep reminding people to listen… it changes lives 🙂 God bless! ♥
