TRU Hearing

Create something special . . .

We are human sponges. Designed to take in information thru our senses. Sight. Sound. Smell. Taste. Touch. Intuition. The information is always there. If we “listen.”

Consumed in our heads, we miss it.

I didn’t hear my daughter. She told me many times she wanted to go to the VMA awards with friends. I remember. But I didn’t listen. My thoughts had me distracted.

Thoughts can do that. Stressful ones especially. They stand in the way of our senses. Block our ability to absorb the richness of the physical world. And the beauty of the moment. They disconnect us from our body. And our spirit. I’m sure I was right there when she asked, every time.

When her emotions got involved, I woke up. And I finally heard her.

Why didn’t I hear the first time?

I want to hear the first time.

But how? When I’m in it, I can’t see it.

The Honest Answer

I don’t know how.

I mean, my left brain doesn’t know. But my spirit, my right brain, does.

See, my left brain is always busy trying to figure things out. It gets caught up thinking and keeps itself very busy. So busy, obviously, I miss important conversations. I don’t want that.

So I asked my spirit “how can I be a better listener?” And I’m waiting for an answer. My unique answer. I know it will come. Because it always does.

Sometimes in the morning, while I journal. Sometimes during the day. Sometimes I even forget, and the spirit reminds me with the answer.

I’ll tell you what happens next week.

Coming T.R.U

Sure, you could try to muscle your answers. Set your own rules. Guess. And slap yourself silly when you’re wrong. (I know it well.)

OR you could ask your God-given spirit to provide wisdom and guidance. It’s what it was designed to do for you.

Remember that list of 50 Ways to Connect to Your Spirit (you can download here). Start there.
