Do you know what your Higher Self’s voice sounds like?
We’re told that consulting the “larger part” of ourselves is the most dependable way to ensure that our desires correlate with those of our soul plan.
Let’s say that you need to make a decision, and so you ask yourself a question: “What is the best option for me at this time?”
Asking yourself a direct question is always the best and most efficient way to get to where you want to go. Your Higher Self is right there, waiting for you to ask.
Depending on how much mind chatter you still have in your internal conversations, you may get an answer in a string of words, or an image, or a feeling, or if you are really attentive to your outside surroundings, a synchronicity that is so perfectly timed that you know its connected to your inquiry.
In the beginning of your awakening, your answer will most likely come to you in words. That’s traditionally been the “reliable” method of communications for humans, after all…forget the fact that leaving out a comma can cause all sorts of issues with the statement being made:
“Let’s eat, Grandma.”
“Let’s eat Grandma.”
So, yeah, words aren’t that dependable.
What about the voice delivering those words? Where is it coming from? Whose voice is it? And is one voice easier to believe than another?
I have a friend who begged for the voice to be someone besides her own, so she could be positive that it wasn’t her mind playing tricks on her. And when it finally happened that she received a message from a strange man’s voice, she freaked out and demanded it go away immediately…and followed by frantically burning sage throughout the house just to ensure that she wasn’t dealing with a negative entity trying to take control over her.
If the voice sounds like your own, you may doubt it as your mind rather than your Higher Self. And if the voice sounds like a stranger, your “fight or flight” reaction could take over…along with the fear that your head will soon do a 360 on your own neck, and you lack the acquaintance of a priest brave enough to lock himself in a room with you for an all-night exorcism.
Words. They aren’t that dependable.
Requiring your answer delivered by words is simply leftover ingrained programming from a society that seeks to control those who won’t make decisions for themselves. If you are reading this, then you are moving away from that programming, and you are moving towards sovereignty.
So next time you ask a question, send out an intention with it:
“I would like the answer to come to me in a manner that alleviates doubt as to the legitimacy of the message.”
And one more thing you may need to face:
Every voice is YOURS, no matter if it sounds like Grandma, your creepy next door neighbor, or your own.
It takes a bit of time to transmute those old doubts, and so we take small steps in the recognition of ourselves being the creator of our reality. We still tend to believe information delivered from external resources over internal messages, and so we unconsciously label the speaker as someone other than ourselves in order to suspend the doubt and accept the message.
So when you hear Grandma’s voice answering your question, you may feel more comfortable with that soft, gentle tone. And that’s totally OK.
But no matter which voice is delivering words to you, there is one more step, which transcends the content of the sentence. It requires you to FEEL in addition to listening:
Check with your gut about the answer you’ve received.
Your gut never lies. Never. Ever. Ever.
Your Higher Self speaks to you through the gut.
So it really doesn’t matter whose voice is speaking to you, because words are filtered through the brain every time. Your Higher Self doesn’t bother with the brain, since it’s undependable, it’s programmable, and it’s fickle. And God forbid, you leave out a comma.
Practice discernment by picking up the internal “red phone” connected directly to your gut, and your answer will be there, at the other end of the line, every time.
Eventually, you will feel more comfortable jettisoning the words, and your answers will come to you in a variety of ways, all of which, in my opinion, are more comprehensive, more colorful, and much more fun.
