Episode 76 – Internal Guidance System
Within each of us is an Internal Guidance System. Our guidance can come in the form of intuition, a gut feeling, a sense of peace or a voice. But there is also the voice of ego in us, which is compelling! Sometimes we have a hard time discerning whether our guidance is Divine (from our Higher Self/Spirit) or rooted in ego (separation/fear/lack/limitation/etc.). In this episode we share experiences of inner Guidance and what we do to cultivate our Divine Self so we can trust its ‘voice.’
The ways we usually approach decisions:
List of pros and cons
Find out what is ‘normal’
The other way:
Divine Guidance shows up in lots of ways. Some are:
Follow your energy
It can come from the outer world but the inner voice needs to confirm
The voice of the ego is compelling. It is rooted in separation (fear, limitation, lack, superiority/inferiority, etc.) and made up of thoughts and beliefs from the past
Ego or Guidance? How Can You Tell?
Ego tends to be loud and angsty. It will reinforce separation.
In contrast, inner Guidance is the “still, small voice”. It brings Peace. It is aligned with Source.
Ego will cast doubt. It encourage chaos and will try to convince. It supports ego identities.
In contrast, Guidance has a deep-rooted certainty. It is neutral, reveals itself in quiet and supports your potential & connection.
It takes Discernment and Faith to trust our Divine Guidance
To ‘hear’ it requires us to cultivate the presence of our Divine Self
We do that through spiritual practice

How have you learned to discern the difference between ego and your Divine Guidance?
As I open myself to Divine Wisdom and Peace, I rise to a higher level of awareness and attune to the Infinite. I release outer distractions that clutter my mind, and experience absolute Peace and Clarity. I hear the gentle guidance of my inner voice, renewing my sense of purpose. I emerge from these moments certain of what is mine to do.
