As I have reported over and over (and over), I’m a big fan of Abraham Hicks. I’m also a fan in general of the idea of “channeled” insight or information, which goes back to my early self-improvement days when I found “The Conversation with God” books. One of the key ideas that I have taken from such sources is the idea of attaining inspiration “from within.” This pairs exactly with my philosophy as an artist, which is all about being open to inspiration, and then penning it down when it comes to me.
Abraham-Hicks talks a lot about this as “Your Inner Being,” which is described as that part of you which is non-physical, and which loves and adores you, and looks upon you with Unconditional Love, Encouragement, and Acceptance.
In the past few months, I have consciously taken on getting into greater rapport with my own Inner Being–or Inner Knowing, or Intuition, or Inner Guidance, or the Unconditionally Loving Voice in My Head, or whatever you want to think of it as!). The Abraham-inspired question is, “How does your Inner Being feel about this?” and “How does your Inner Being feel about you?”
What I have found is that, inevitably, when I ask myself the question, the answer is always one of Love. There is never any doubt, any discouragement, any anger, or any fear.
There is never any impatience, any judgment, or any criticism. There is never any frustration or annoyance.
In fact, more and more, I am seeing my relationship with my Inner Being as an essential part of my overall happiness. Where in the past I might have looked to others to fulfill some need–maybe a sense of alignment, security, or happiness–I know now beyond a shadow of a doubt that I can always turn within and find all that I am looking for 🙂
This is providing me with an incredible sense of well-being that I probably had always been looking for but hadn’t found. I looked for it in outside sources: whether as a kid it was friends, romantic crushes, movies, books, or getting good grades; or as an adult it was in other workshops, mentors, and coaches. Although I benefited from all these things, ultimately it was in discovering and creating this relationship with myself that I found my true power.
It was here that I discovered that I did not need anything from anyone else. I had all I needed within myself. And if I did not feel it, if I felt out of sorts or limited or off-kilter, all I needed to do was turn within, and I would find it once again.
I have learned to think of this process as the process of Getting into Alignment. I’m learning to see that it is inevitable that things will happen which will frustrate, confuse, or distract me from feeling good. When this happens, I know have a clear solution.
Ladies and Gentleman, I would like to introduce you to the Best Friend You Will Ever Need: Your Inner Being. He/she/it/they will always be there for you. They will never get impatient with you. They will never be too busy for you. They will never scold you, cut you off, or berate you. They will never leave you feeling rejected or alone. They will never look at you coldly, or offer your sharp words. They will never snap at you, or rant at you.
Would you like to give this relationship a try? I encourage you to. Go within by whatever means works best. For me, on a daily basis it generally comes from writing. For you it could be writing, singing, being in nature, exercising, painting, recording yourself talking into your phone, or many other things. Reach out, and await inspiration. Let your intuition guide you. Dare to find answers within yourself.
You will not be disappointed.
