All You Need…..

 

The universe is not outside of you, look inside yourself, everything that you want you are ~ Rumi

All you need, you already have, everything that you require to get through life you already possess. We hold great knowledge within us, we came with it, we just need to trust in this truth and locate it.

It is in our capability to access all the knowledge we will ever need, it is inside each of us and all of us, as individuals and as united souls. Asking means listening and trusting, remaining open to suggestion but listening for and trusting in our own internal voice.

We are older than we think, older than our bodies, we have been here before and we will come here again, we are old souls and can access all that we need to know, we can remember and tap into the souls of many lifetimes and access the universal knowledge that flows through these lives.

There are no questions without answers, even the ones we have not answered on earth have been answered at some point on some plane. We are capable of accessing these answers, because they were written for us.

Yes, we forget, we become immersed in the physical and forget our greatness. We forget to trust, we somehow lost the belief we were born with.

Take a look at nature, nature hasn’t forgot, nature continues without schools, newspapers and brainwashing. We are nature and like nature we can find answers, we are meant to flow like a river, bloom like a flower, rise and fall like the sun and come together like the seas.

Look at the butterfly and ask how it knew to build a chrysalis, if it thought about it, if it knew it would ever fly, because I think if they could talk, they would tell us they followed their instincts, they listened to their internal voice.

Do you hear that inner voice, and if so, does it tell you if you ask what you find you already intuitively know or point you in the right direction when you come to a fork in the road. Do you have a certain feeling that you have an inner knowing, but fail to trust in it?

I think it’s about time we started to listen to ourselves, practice this ancient skill and follow our own intuition. The world is a scary place when everyone looks to another for answers, is happy to be led by those that profess to know, or want the power of control.

We have lost the art of knowing, we have forgotten what we once knew, we have given in somehow and become reliant on being told.

All that we will ever need we already possess…..

Finding my Voice

IMG_5835

It’s taken me a lifetime to find my voice, to speak from my heart. I’ve always said what I think but for a long time in the right company, in the company of those that would understand. As a child I agreed with everyone else, it’s a Virgo trait to want to keep people happy. In fact I think it was more than that, I didn’t have my own voice, I had the voice of society, the voice of everybody else.

I still want to be liked, it’s deep rooted, it’s connected to experience and that ego mind of mine, but today I’m not as bothered. I want to be liked by those that get me, I hope people will listen and consider my opinion but it’s not important and I could well be wrong, I’m still finding myself and therefore my voice might change.

So what is finding your voice, for me it is discovering yourself, your self expression in whatever form it presents. Your own unique voice is passionate, it’s your own authenticity, it’s your truth. It probably won’t be like anyone else as it’s unique to each of us, our voice is our own expression of life.

Artists understand what it is to have their own voice, poets, writers, dancers and painters because their voice is their craft, they speak from the heart, they understand individuality. That to me is owning your voice, it’s speaking from the heart, speaking from the absolute knowing inside of each of us.

So is it our voice or the realisation that we are truth, we are connected and finding that connection gives us our uniqueness. I know that doesn’t make a lot of sense but bare with me. I’ve found my connection, I’m in touch with a universal consciousness and yet I present my own understanding of it, I’m unique in how I choose to present it. If we were all the same we would all be dancing, I have two left feet but I can hear the rhythm of the universe in my heart.

I’m in love with nature and nature has given me a voice and that voice is my understanding of natures message. I am the the author of my own voice and yet that voice comes through a connection with the universe.

If we think about a rose, it’s not the same as any other rose, it presents us with it’s own understanding of growth and this is influenced by it’s surroundings, it’s experience of the world. That’s how we find our voice, it’s an inner knowing which comes to the surface through experience, as experience helps us to listen.

Here’s a question, is knowing ourselves the truth or is it influenced by our experiences here, are the experiences to remind us of who we really are, or are they to challenge us.

I’ve found my own voice as the person I am, the human, I hope it connects with what is true but at the moment it’s my truth.

Capacity to Think

 

img_1732

As humans are we any better,

than say, your cat or dog,

does our thinking brain and mind,

not just create a fog.

Does it not cause obstacles,

prevent us from the task,

pondering on the end result,

why do we have to ask.

Is a capacity to think destructive,

messing intuition,

hindering what we truly know,

altering our mission.

Is an animal superior,

intuitively just knowing,

living in the moment, 

no worry where it’s going.

 

I wrote this quickly for fun, but it was something I was pondering on as I’m inclined to do.  I sometimes think my mind an obstacle to reaching my true intuitive self.  Sometimes I go round and round the houses thinking about something, trying to make up my mind, weighing up the pro’s and cons and end up back at my first intuitive response.

Interested in your thoughts 🙂
