You must learn to sit within yourself. What does this mean? It means to listen to your internal voice rather than listen to all that is external around you. It also means to listen to the voice inside you that is not filled with doubts and worries, or great wants and needs. That is not your internal voice. That is the ramblings of your human mind from collective experiences. The internal voice is the steady constant voice you have heard since you were a child. It is the voice that guides you; carries on conversations with you. Some call it your moral compass. Others call it your intuition or the voice of your soul. I will call it your higher self, that part of you that extends beyond your human consciousness and continues when the human body stops living.
Go within yourself and sort through all the voices, all the emotions, until you can hear that slow steady voice that is devoid of fears, devoid of wants. It will simply tell you things. Now, sit and listen to this voice for as long as you can concentrate. Find a quiet spot where you will not be interrupted and do this.
Keep a journal. After you have gone within yourself take the journal out and jot down what this internal dialogue talked about. This is more important than you might realize. It will take some time to trust this internal conversation but keeping a journal to refer back to will speed up this process.
Close your eyes now and relax after you have written your thoughts down in the journal. While you have your eyes closed allow your imagination to wander taking note of where it wants to go. Do not try to make sense of what comes into your imagination, just be an observer. After you have relaxed take your journal and make note of what you saw in your imagination; again not interpreting anything.
Every day allow yourself to do these three things either in the morning or perhaps before you go to bed. Keep your journal safe and private You are connecting with your higher self.
