The Answer Lies Within


Every now and then we come to a point in our lives where we feel like we need to make a change. If we don´t know right away which direction to go, we often just keep going. It may lead us to a point where we can´t go on like this anymore and something has to be done. Then we ask ourselves which is the right path for me? Where do I go from here? Often big life changes make us wander big questions like: Who am I? What do I really want in my life? What is my life purpose? 

It would be amazing if you could just go to someone who told you what to do and where to go. But in personal matters like this, it´s trickier than just turning to a friend for an answer. You can ask around as much as you want to, but the answer means nothing if it doesn´t resonate with your heart. The answer lies within you. There´s a great wisdom in your heart, when you just have a courage to listen to it. You can start listening your inner wisdom anytime you want to. 

Silence your mind through breathing and focus on the now. Let your inner self become visible to you. Accept everything that comes up, do not judge anything. Pay attention to how those things and thoughts that come up, make you feel. You´ll probably notice that you don´t like some of your thought and feelings at all. You may restrict yourself unknowingly; fast judgements that you cannot do something, that you are not good enough etc. Once you accept all of your feelings and beliefs, you can let them go. As long as you fight against them, you only waste your energy. 

Take time to sit everyday quietly listening to your inner wisdom. You´ll realize that you can do so much more than you believed. You are stronger than you could ever imagine. You have the power. Work your magic today!
