I've been in discussion with myself. Not just in my head, no – a real discussion where I express myself & am listened to before I consider the response I will give. I do this in my journal. Sometimes I give myself an encouraging nod, other times I tell it as I see it. And it's often luminous + loving, sometimes humorous too.
If I don't journal for more than a few days in a row, I feel that I'm loosing my relationship to myself. I feel scattered, anxiety creeps up & I start believing all kinds of crazy things. Yesterday's case is a good example: I felt that I was "behind" in my business development. Really, I thought, I should be further along with my brand identity, not to mention my book, plus all of my marketing efforts too (obviously). So I wrote all that down in my journal - all of my private thoughts about myself & my business.
And when I felt I had said most of it, I started to listen to my inner wisdom. She was the nurturing mother of my inner child. Gently, she parted the truth from the fears. She wrote about growth + expectations. Most of all, she reminded me to stay in the present moment.
I love myself so much for being able to show such compassion + wisdom. I came out of my session calm & confident. I had once again taken the time to look within & the bond I had strengthened seemed to reach into infinity.
I wish you to find your own way to "calibrate" yourself back to your true divine nature. If you do have a regular spiritual practice, please share it in the comments below.
