Choosing Alignment With Your True Self

One of the benefits I have personally experienced from being more aligned and connected with my True Self (I Am Presence) is that I receive guidance on a regular basis.  Often the guidance appears as a thought in my head not much different from any other thought.  How did I learn to tell them apart?  Practice and testing out what I hear.

Sometimes I notice a thought that clearly isn’t my own.  I may be speaking to someone and I hear myself saying something that I could not have possibly have known myself.  For example, I was talking with a chiropractic nutritionist about a probiotic (healthy microorganisms) I was taking that he had been using with his clients for some time.  I had just asked him a question and the answer just popped into my head.  The moment I heard the answer, I knew it was true.  Before he even responded, I spoke the answer allowed as a question to him.  He immediately agreed.

Now you could, perhaps, call this telepathy, but then that is also a characteristic of the I Am Presence.  Our True Self is a vast being of Light and Love who is completely connected to the Group Consciousness of Humanity and has access to all kinds of wisdom and information.  So, as long as the information is accurate and the wisdom is Divine, does it exactly matter what the source is?

One way to know if information is accurate is called “discernment.”  You use discernment when you test out information internally.  Does this information resonate with you as true?  Does it feel right in your gut?  In other words, does it energetically vibrate with your intuition? 

Keeping a journal of situations where you did this testing might be useful.  Over time, you would be able to identify that more and more often you were accurate when you tested out information with your intuition.

Another time, I had just renewed a prescription at the pharmacy and picked up the first installment.  As I walked away from the counter, I heard a thought in my head, “Check the prescription.  The refills are wrong.”  At one time I might have ignored such a thought as my small self being negative.  This time, I made a note to check the refills on the label.  Being very tired, I headed home.  Later in the day, I did check the label, and sure enough, the number of refills listed was incorrect. 

Listening to your inner guidance system can help you stay alive.  I’ve read stories of people who, for no logical reason, decided not to get on certain airplanes or ships and those vessels crashed or had other problems. 

We all have this connection to our True Self.  We cannot be alive without that energy because that is who we really are.  Our True Self uses many different ways to communicate with us. 

Emotion is one signal mechanism.  If we do something and then feel an unpleasant emotion around it, that’s a signal that our action took us off our path.  If we feel a pleasant emotion, that is a signal that our action is aligned with our path.

Intuition is another signal.  When we listen to our intuition, we are listening to our own True Self.  Our True Self wants the very best for us.  When we make a commitment to listen to our inner guidance, we are making a commitment to align with our Highest aspect.

Just like any other skill, we improve with practice.  The first step is to make the commitment to pay attention to how we are feeling, to listen to our intuition, to test out our decisions with our gut feelings, to check out information using discernment.

Are you ready to make such a commitment?  What are you waiting for?  Start now . . .  today . . . this very moment.  It will change your life for the better.  It will help you find and stay on your personal life path.

If you are already doing this, please share an experience or two where you have been accurate.  Focusing on success brings more success.
