There is wisdom that exists within you that is available to you for shifting your perspective on the problems of your life. There are ways to tap this wisdom that are simple and accessible, and you can get in touch with a higher understanding. You may have a question you want to ask, or you may just want to listen and experience the guidance and wisdom that come forth. You may ask for wisdom about a current relationship, a career decision, a financial issue, a challenge in the life of someone else, or a difficulty in the world. Your Wise Mind may assist you in making a decision, or it may soothe or even remove a difficulty and help you to understand it more fully.
Here are seven tips for finding answers inside yourself:
1. Sit down with a pen and paper or keyboard, or even a microphone, and allow
yourself to become relaxed. You can pay attention to your breathing or count down from ten to one slowly. As you’re relaxing, you may want to tell yourself, “I’m now becoming a vehicle for my inner wisdom to come through me. I open to receive information and wisdom. I am a channel for the great Wise Mind.”
Begin to Channel
2. As you relax, you may be able to experience a type of open-eyed trance and write some wisdom and guidance onto a piece of paper or into a computer. Let it just come through your arms, into your hands, out your pen or keyboard, and onto the page or screen. Become a vehicle for this writing. Just as a dancer can dance without thought, a musician can play without thought, you can write without thought. Just let it come through. Again, you may want to pose a question, or you may just wish to listen to wisdom. If you receive nothing but relaxation, consider that a very peaceful state to receive. Feel free to invent your experience or even to make up the wisdom more actively, as this too comes from the universal realm.
Listen to the Messages
3. Listen to the messages. Sometimes they will be short and general, such as, “You’re going in the right direction. You’re finding what you’re looking for. Be strong, have patience and fortitude, and the seeds you have planted will flower.” Some messages will be more detailed, telling you specifically what’s happening in your relationships, your finances, or your work life, and then you may receive messages about how to improve and transform your situation.
