#20 What Can I Do Now? Be Still and Listen

Sometimes we have to stop questioning and just be still and listen. We won’t ever hear the answers if we don’t quiet the inner chatter and stay open for the inner wisdom to prevail.

I’m a person who asks a lot of questions. I’m love learning. I’ve always been like this, but sometimes it’s important for me to be still and listen. I need to stop asking questions and make space to connect and absorb the answers. If I don’t give myself the space to process the knowledge, I might understand on a surface level, but never be able to integrate the wisdom into my life.

I see this when I KNOW something on an intellectual level, but can’t find away to apply the wisdom into my life. That’s when I know I haven’t absorbed the wisdom. It’s funny, I knew early on today that I was meant to write this piece, because I knew it was what I needed to do. Later, I was on my weekly call with my friend when she told me that the answer to a question I had about one of my blocks was to ask a question, but then to LISTEN! When things like this happen, I know the Universe is leading me in the right direction. What can I do now? Be still and listen.

As soon as my fingers leave this keyboard, that’s exactly what I’m going to do. I’m going to sit, breathe, and trust what comes in while I breathe in this calm and centered place. When I feel the wisdom coming through, I will write whatever comes to my mind. I’ve used this process before, and I’ve gotten a lot out of it. Back in 1998, I wrote something that I shared in a blog (see link) a while back. I didn’t even remember doing it until I found it years later. The wisdom we need is within us. We just have to quiet the noise and allow ourselves to hear, connect, and absorb it. It all begins with two simple tasks—Be still and listen.
