I’ve been a seeker for a very long time, always curious, always wanting to understand more about people (hey I taught psychology so I think that might give the game away!!), always keen to expand my knowledge about ‘everything’ - well personal development and especially spiritual, metaphysical and generally ‘woo’ stuff (!), and often looking outside of myself for answers to ALL my questions. Coming from the world of academia, that’s what we do. I held a false belief that all knowledge is ‘out there’ and not ‘in here’. It took many years for me to realise that there was an infinite source of knowledge right under my nose - and even longer to trust it!
But creating space for journaling, creativity, meditation, maybe a practice like yoga or even spending time in nature, enables you to connect with YOU and reflect on what you want to experience in your life, and tap into the wisdom that has always, and always will be, inside you. In order to receive the wisdom you have to be prepared to create some space to get quiet, ask questions and listen.
I am learning to do this more and more and wouldn’t now live any other way. Getting out of my head and tapping into the wisdom of my heart will quite probably be a practice for the rest of my life. When I take my eye off the ball, I’m back into my head again, looking in the wrong direction.
Looking outside of ourselves comes naturally to most of us, yet there is so much more to be gained by an inward focus. We are born with a great knowing, with knowledge that supports us for the exact life we have come here to live. Look within for truth, for wisdom, for love, for happiness, for freedom and really start to 'hear' the wisdom from Rumi.
You wander from room to room hunting for the diamond necklace that is a!ready around your neck. Be more Rumi ❤️
