Recently, I had a conversation with a friend where I told her that I had made a decision not to do something because after reflection and meditation, the answer I got was no. Getting a no is very difficult for me because I typically think I have misunderstood, particularly if it appears to be something that I might want to do or if I have predetermined what the answer ought to be for me. In essence, a part of me finds “yes” a preferred response.
What I have learned is that in such times I must trust the inner guidance that has supported me in life. I find myself trying to analyze and second guess the answer. I sometimes think I might be missing out on something. However, I have learned over and over that I must listen and wait to see what unfolds. I must trust that everything is working out for my good.
My work now is not to second guess myself and let things be, recognizing that although I may not understand the reasons for the answer I received at this time, my intuition is in alignment with what is best for me in this moment (for more on “What Happens When You Listen to Your Intuition” go to this link). I have faith that what I am to know will be revealed in time. In the meantime, I am grateful for the inner guidance that has so often supported me and shall continue to do so as long as I continue to listen within and follow where it leads.
