Trusting Your Inner Compass we forget to trust ourselves. It's as simple as that. We somehow get caught in the thought that others know whats best for us. We think that because so-and-so has known us for a long time and been by our side, they must know what is right for us. And when we are at a crossroads when making a decision, it seems easier and logical to put our trust into these people. But in this very moment, we forget that while seeking for help and advice provides useful perspective, it is inside that all the answers lie. The final decision that best benefits us is one that we know in our hearts. 

"You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore."
– Christopher Columbus.

Trusting our inner compass means having the courage to experiment with it. Giving ourselves the permission to explore is freedom. For if we allow others to make our decisions, we end up feeling like a victim. Of course there are people who will say things that resonate with our inner intentions, but there will also be those who aren't aware of our needs. At the end of the day, we take all that we learn and apply that which feels right.

So it is best to walk the journey that is ours, with all of its bumps and turns. To try things, and learn about what makes us feel good and what doesn't. And as we experience more, we know more and have a greater inner understanding. Our inner world becomes rich with insight and our outer world becomes a reflection of this.   

I like to think of making good choices as a skill. And by "good choices", I mean ones that benefit our well-being. The more we can trust ourselves to make our own decisions, we build a wealth of inner knowledge and a sense of direction. And what many of us think of as a "wrong choice" is really an opportunity to learn and gain contrast by seeing what isn't in alignment with our desires. 

And as we experience more of what is in alignment with our desires, we build upon this and each choice is an opportunity to reflect on what we have learned so far to make decisions that will guide us further along our inner path of fulfillment.

Let your light shine,
