Living in the Question - Values: Listening and Inner Wisdom
Happy March! As we journey into a new month we do so with a practice called Visioning. Each week we will explore a different stage of the visioning process. This first week we ask the question ~ What is Spirits Highest idea of itself as my life? It's a BIG question and depending on our age there will be many different answers.
A question like this requires us to listen deeply and to take our time. The power and presence of Spirit resides within each of us. It is the voice of Inner Wisdom and we find it by listening with our heart as well as our ears. If you are a parent with young children you might start by asking the question, "what is the biggest thing you can think of?" or "what is the biggest idea you can imagine?" Allow ideas to flow freely then play with ideas that benefit ALL life (Creating a world that works for all).
"God’s Creative Power of Mind is right here. We have as much of this power to use as we believe in and embody. The storehouse of nature is filled with infinite good, awaiting the touch of our awakened thought to spring forth into manifestation in our lives.” ~Ernest Holmes
When we are babies we rely upon an inner intuition or inner wisdom to perceive the world around us. We feel, we notice, we listen carefully, then we act or react based on the energy around us. Our inner intuition is on high alert and it helps us to understand our life, our environment. As we grow older we tend to forget that we have this inner wisdom, this inner compass, however it is always there, ready to respond to our inquiry if we make the time to listen deeply.
"You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and loved more than you’ll ever know.” ~A.A. Milne
Living in the question, invites us to always be curious. To stretch our imagination and explore new possibilities. We may not know today, exactly what we will do or be in our lifetime, however we might find an area of interest that we want to know more about. Here are several questions for you to begin your personal exploration. As you stretch your question and listening muscles remember to come back to that "high idea" for your life.
What is one thing you know now that you didn't know a year ago? What is something you never thought you'd like but you do? What fruit or vegetable have you never tasted? What in life are you curious about? What quality of Spirit do you demonstrate often (love, light, peace, joy, power, beauty...)? What is something you wanted to try but haven't - yet? What is something you would like to learn more about? What is.... (you fill in the question).
