Self-Incuiry and Writing
Here’s a great technique that will help you get insights and clarity if there’s something specific that you feel the need to get answers to.
This process of self-inquiry that I’m going to share with you may sound simple but only after you have experienced it for yourself will you know how powerful it is.
The results will surprise you.
It’s not enough to ‘think’ this technique (to do the inquiry in the mind only), but to actually write – there’s a strong connection to our higher self through writing – thinking is all in the mind, and this is not a mental exercise.
No one knows better than your true self what is best for you, and when following our intuition we’re lead right back into alignment with the path that is right for us in life.
Let’s begin: Grab pen and paper, get still, pay attention to your breathing and center yourself.
Sit and relax, breath and connect with your deepest sense of self, or God.
Then begin to ask yourself questions like for example:
- Who am I, really?
- Why did I chose this lifetime?
- What is the most important thing I need to know about my life right now?
This self-inquiry process can be used for other kinds of questions too, such as:
- What is the truth of my relationship with ____________?
- Is it in my best interest if I ______________?
- Why do I feel confused about ______________?
- What am I not seeing when it comes to _____________?
And so on. You can ask anything that is important to you.
But instead of just writing down a bunch of questions, write the answers too right away, and just go with the flow of your own asking and answering.
This is a conversation with your higher self, God, which is You, and You know all the answers already, even if they are not apparent to you consciously yet – they are there, lying dormant just below the surface of the conscious mind. (The thinking mind)
If you don’t feel you can give an answer, pretend that you can (be playful about it, light-hearted), or just write whatever that comes up. It might make sense to you afterwards.
The easiest way is to follow each question with an immediate answer and just get the flow going without stopping and reasoning or using logic in any way.
Resist the urge to think too much of the answers that comes up.
If you feel stuck, just go to the next question, keep the energy-flow loose and light, yet still curious and by remaining attentive.
What happens is that after a while a dialogue develops and suddenly you are having a real conversation with God!
You might get surprising answers… 🙂
And you may get an inner confirmation on answers you already knew if you had paid more attention to your gut feeling, or in most cases; trusted it.
Sometimes you get questions back that makes you think and reexamine your question and so on.
The trick is to not go back and re-read anything until the whole conversation is over.
Write and let the question flow naturally and you will be surprised at what comes up.
When you feel the conversationis ebbing out it’s time to stop and put the pen down, and only then, afterwards, can you read what has been written.
The advice and answers you get is from your true inner self who knows all the answers to everything and it invites you to fully trust it.
Intuition is not logical at all, but it can always be trusted.
Allow yourself to follow the guidance you’ve got.
