365 Pause Practices Day 297
Can Inner Wisdom Screw Things Up?
Sharing by Mary
Yesterday (and today, so far) I paused and followed my inner Wisdom.
Wow, what a glorious day!!! How come I don’t do this more often?
Hesitant to follow my inner Wisdom because I wanted a really good day
and what if my inner Wisdom screwed that up? I was willing to give it a shot.
I asked inner Wisdom, “Where should we eat lunch?”
We had a splendid lunch sitting outside on a gorgeous Autumn day.
The service had some snags in it, but I remained peaceful and content.
I asked inner Wisdom, “Where shall we go next?” I had planned
to go home and go for a walk! Instead, I got home and:
> felt this strong pull to begin cleaning, organizing, and rearranging
the furniture in my office! Really? Today? Now?
> the pull of my inner Knowing was gentle, and inquisitive, as my eyes gazed
at my office pondering the possibilities. Without thinking I simply
began moving stuff around.
> I didn’t push myself to complete the task, rather when I felt an inner Wisdom
nudge to go for a walk, I did.
> Upon returning, Wisdom moved my body into action continuing with office
reorganization letting my creative energies flow.
> In mid-action, I was moved to stop for the day and have dinner.
I DID NOT ASK INNER WISDOM, “What shall I eat for dinner?” BECAUSE I
WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO A BOWL OF CHILI ALL DAY!!!
While heating the chili, I noticed I was being moved away from eating chili and
towards cashew butter on a toasted waffle with a bowl of healthy cereal. That
was a wise decision. Probably avoided a night of indigestion.
EVEN WITH THE SEEMING SMALL STUFF THAT
YOU THINK YOU CAN HANDLE JUST FINE ON YOUR OWN
Your Inner Wisdom is worth a pause as it has your
best interests in mind.
