Inspire-ME Monday #6: INTUITION OR, LISTENING TO YOURSELF

And here we go again! One theme flows from another as we continue the conversation with each other, with ourselves and with the great and powerful Universe which speaks to each and every one of us if we will but listen.

The theme this week is INTUITION or LISTENING TO YOURSELF. As important as it is to listen to others, it is equally important to listen to ourselves. Here are some of my favorite quotes about listening to yourself. I hope you enjoy them and that they inspire you to pay closer attention to that still small voice inside:

"In our 'doing' society, we have a zeal for sorting out our agenda and implementing it. But in my experience the world is there to guide you at every moment. The world is calling you to come play, to come risk, to come let your heart burn with a passion that will make sense of your life. The world will speak to you as intimately as your mother did when you were a child, if you can allow the body to teach you its different way of listening." --Phillip Shepherd in The Sun magazine

"If you LISTEN you will know everything you need to know." --The Universe

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become."--Steve Jobs

"When we practice listening, we become intuitive." --Unknown, Yogi Tea tea bag

"Intuition is not something you awaken, it's already there, you simply remove the blocks that keep you from seeing clearly." --David Pond

"Pay attention to the reactions of of your body. It is the wisdom of the self speaking to you. Be aware of concern, of anticipation, of all the feelings that come from the self. They manifest in the body. What is their counsel?" --Maurice in "Maisie Dobbs" by Jacqueline Winspear

"I think what I've been saying in my songs all these years is: respect yourself; listen to yourself; you are not crazy." --Ani DeFranco in The Sun magazine
~  *  ~
"I don't have to say, 'I don't know.' I can ASK. I don't have to be lost." --Inna Segal
 ~  *  ~
"We all have a better guide in ourselves, if we would attend to it, than any other person can be." --Jane Austen from "Mansfield Park"
