Dr Robert Anthony: Surrender To The Flow

"How do these geese know when to fly to the sun?  Who tells them the seasons?  How do we, humans, know when it is time to move on?  How do we know when to go?  As with the migrant birds, so surely with  us, there is a voice within, if only we would listen to it, that tells us so certainly when to go forth into the unknown." - Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, M.D.

Trusting yourself is a major sign of surrendering to the Flow. As in the above quote, the geese don't seem to argue over when it is time to fly south, they just seem to know. The less victimized you feel by your background, your work history, your relationship history, your health, age or anything else, the easier it is for you to hear that voice within. As you move higher up the Levels of Awareness, you will find that voice gets louder in every stage. This is partly due to the reduction of your drama and partly due to your willingness to hear your own wisdom.

The next step after hearing your inner voice, is to trust what it says and dare to act on it. That takes practice and you will find you do a lot of that in the Learning and Experiencing Level of Awareness. Don't be alarmed if you act on something that you thought was your inner voice communicating and it proves to be inaccurate or not in your best interest. Sometimes our egos want to get into the game and will play tricks on us.  How do you know the difference?  That will vary for each of you, but here are a few tips. The more your inner voice is concerned with being right, the more likely it is ego, not internal wisdom.  If you waffle back and forth a lot regarding taking action, that is still your ego trying to be safe.  In that case ask yourself, "If I knew I couldn't do it wrong, what would I do?"   That will give you an answer that is not coming from fear or ego.

Begin to notice how you hear or sense your inner voice when it has led you in the right direction. Pay special attention to the fact that it is often not logical. Your inner voice has its own non-linear way of knowing and communicating.  It is your job to discover your own patterns and trust that no matter what it looks like on the surface, there are good reasons to honor your internal wisdom. How many times have you noticed after something you feared has happened, looking back on it, you realize it was the best thing for you after all?
