Has a little voice been whispering to you about something?
Maybe your cough hasn’t gone away, and you haven’t called your physician yet. Or what about that loose railing on your porch? You think of getting out the toolkit every time you feel that wobble, but you just haven’t done it yet.
There is a little voice in each of us that will whisper hints and reminders of what needs to be set right to make our world a safer and more balanced place. We usually know when we need to see a doctor for a cough, a strange-looking spot on our skin, or some other minor malady. We know when we’re eating poorly, are in a toxic relationship or an unsafe environment.
We may call that voice many things: our higher Self, our better Angels, ”the Universe,” or God.
When we don’t listen to that whisper, the Universe may have to raise her voice a little, just to get our attention.
If you trip on the porch, maybe you’ll finally fix the darned thing. Your inner knowing is really pressing you to do something now! If you don’t repair it, something more serious may happen. How long will you wait to do what you know is right and necessary to prevent a catastrophe?
I’ve talked about this phenomenon with my friends and colleagues. As humans, we do seem to get many hints about what we need to do to keep our lives in balance. We often have competing agendas, however, and it’s easy for us to rationalize our way past the whispered hints and even the warning cries of the Universe!
Has the Universe been knocking on your door about something in your life that is out of balance? Perhaps you are so overwhelmed that you feel the Universe has backed you into a corner! Maybe the noise in your life is so loud you can no longer discern the direction you need to take to find your way home.
Listen to your inner knowing, your higher Self, the Universe. If you need someone to support you in finding the way back to balance, contact a physician or mental health counselor, pastor or friend.
May 2011 be the year you begin to hear the whispers again, and live in harmony with the Universe.
