Your mind knows only some things. Your inner voice is your instinct, which knows everything. If you listen to what you know instinctively, it will lead you down the right path.
When I was a child, I was always losing my glasses. I was in a real panic mode looking for my glasses, when I asked my sister if she had seen them. She laughed and said, yes you are wearing them. This got me thinking, How many times are things so obvious, we don’t even realize them? If we started quieting the mind so we could start listening to our inner voice, it would tell us where our glasses are, and even help with bigger problems.
When my Mom says, “I don’t have a good feeling about that”, you listen. My Mom has learned that when the Holy Ghost, or “still small voice,” is prompting her, she listens.
I wouldn’t be here today, if my Mom ignored the promptings she gets. Some people call it their inner voice. Don’t ignore it. When my parents were first married and with my sister, Ramona, they decided to go to Yellowstone Park. My Dad had never been there.
My Great-Grandparents, the Meservy’s, lived in Idaho, near the park. My parents spent the first night visiting my mom’s grandparents. They were going to spend the next night in the park.
After their visit with family, my Dad loaded up the car. Then my Mom had this uneasy feeling about going to Yellowstone. She didn’t know, why, but she listened anyway and, so they stayed an extra night with family.
Later that night, one of the worst earthquakes hit in Yellowstone. A landslide buried the campground killing hundreds of people where they would have been sleeping. I am thankful for a Mom who listens to the Holy Ghost. She is a great example to many people.
Have you ever had the strongest feeling to do something and you ignored the prompting? Maybe you were prompted to talk to someone, give someone money or even write a book.
I love this question. When you see an amazing roller coaster, or the next time you use your Ipod, ask yourself, how many people ignored their inner voice before these thoughts became tangible things?
I think many people are inspired to do amazing wonderful things. Then they ignore their promptings, and as a result, their dreams do not come to fruition.
To prove this point when you see an invention that has made a ton of money, have you ever thought, I had the same idea why didn’t I take it more seriously?
The next thing we need to do is start listening and living up to our full potential.
“Develop the inner vision and the habit of listening to the inner Voice; and you are assured of unshakable Peace and infinite Joy.” Atharva Veda
