A Beacon in the Dark April 30, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Magick & Mystery, Mindfulness.

By remaining open and receptive to the moment, we allow ourselves to be gently steered and guided to what we need to know, see, hear, or do next.

Our attention may be drawn to a book we need to read, a person we need to meet, a conversation we need to have, or a classified advertisement we need to see ~ if we listen to the whispers of spirit, anything in life can be our guide.

When something grabs your attention, pay attention ~ it may be the answer to your prayers . . . the key to achieving your dreams.

Likewise, when you do NOT want to do something that you feel you “should” do, pay attention ~ perhaps the greater good of all will be advanced if you choose to “drop this ball” and allow it to roll into someone else’s court. 

Spirit Lights The Way ~ it is our beacon in the dark, our guide through the infinite possibilities and the uncertainty of life.

Silence the mind.  Just Be.  Focus on your breath . . . allow your inner wisdom to surface.

No rules.  Just write!

I agree with being open to new things, to occasionally leaving your mind in “neutral” in order to be receptive.

I would add, though, that some work can be done to enhance this. I look at the choices people make when it comes to music, news media, or entertainment, for example.

I don’t suggest that people stop listening to or watching what they like, but to keep in mind that what we surround ourselves with is what we become “experts” in.

If our music is doleful, might not our spirit follow suit? If we center ourselves on the conflicts of the world, what will that do to our daily lives?

I agree with you . . .

If we listen to sad news or music 24/7, we are apt to be sad. If we focus solely on the problems in our lives (or the world), life is apt to become overwhelming and painful.

But . . .

When we get bogged down in the negativies, Spirit encourages us to reach for the positives ~ to change the station to something that will make our hearts soar with happiness, enthusiasm, inspiration, and hope.

Spirit urges us to let go of the shoreline and sail without fear.

This seems similar to listening to one’s intuitive feelings. I like your comment about paying attention when you do not want to do something. I’ve experienced the unhappy result of not listening to that inner voice.

nrhatch - April 30, 2010

Just so.

What I used to call intuition, I now refer to as my inner wisdom.

For me: spirit = inner wisdom = intuition = inner voice = the Universe in action

It was the Universe in action that whispered very specific names in my ear right after my collision last Friday… It led me to the purchase of a newer pre-owned vehicle with the opportunity to rebuild my credit — after a number of economy-related circumstances had damaged it…

Most important than that, I met human beings in my local business community who are also guided by the same spirit and who assisted me in getting my goals met… I’m still listening for that inner voice… As long as I can keep my outer voice shut up long enough to hear it, I usually do fine 🙂

Love it when something “bad” happens . . . for our benefit! : )

Again, such inspiring stuff, wonderful and so true. I learnt a long time ago that if you are a negative person that thinks things will go wrong, then that becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. It’s so much better and easier to be positive and try to see how things that we need come to us but only if we are open to them.

nrhatch - June 10, 2010

I agree.

We’re magnets. If we’re positives, we experience more positives.

Thanks for stopping by!
