The soul continuously sends guidelines to the consciousness to keep you aligned with your contract choices. These guidelines, which are as clear as neon signs pointing in the directions you chose, may come as words but most often are strong sensations. When you are heeding your soul’s messages, in heart and mind you feel as if you are flowing lightly with the current, so to say—this is your soul saying “Good job!” Conversely, when your free will decision, action or inaction goes against your contract, you experience uneasiness and discomfort—you wish you had made a different choice.
The lighthearted feeling of a “clear” conscience lets you know that what you did was right; feelings of guilt, regret or remorse signify that it wasn’t. Be aware that if the latter feelings are ignored time after time, the conscience begins to atrophy and mean-spiritedness and apathy start to feel natural.
Instinct is a spontaneous reaction to a situation that poses grave danger to you, a loved one or a stranger, and acting instantly can be life-saving.
Using intuition is a contemplative process of “asking within” for advice, then stilling your mind. You may want to know, for instance, whether a particular person is the best choice as a lifetime partner; if a proposed business venture is in your best interests; when an investment of time, energy or money is wise; if relocating or accepting a job offer is a good idea. As you contemplate any of those kinds of situations or another matter of great importance to your future, if the urge to act upon the idea becomes stronger, your soul is speaking ever more loudly to motivate you to take relevant action. If reluctance to take the next step persists, your soul is saying “Don’t do this.”
While exercising your power of discernment is similar, it provides answers you’re seeking at the moment. That could be whether it would be wise to share your thoughts with someone, which information is the truth for you and which is not, if silence about a matter is kinder than speaking up, does a particular situation deserve your attention—that is, separating the trivial from the worthwhile.
Acting upon inspirations and aspirations leads to fields of endeavor and major activities you chose in your soul contract. Being true to yourself in this respect results in a gratifying sense of fulfillment whereas spending your life doing what someone says you should instead of following your heart’s desire brings restlessness and discontentment.
Why are we telling you what you already know? Because, our beloved family, you aren’t using that knowledge to the fullest! Questioning at deeply introspective levels is extremely important indeed, and that huge step out of third density consciousness is an arduous trek, to be sure. However, the next step—getting your answers within—comes as easily and swiftly as you will allow. Within your soul is all the knowingness, assurance, self-confidence, caring, wisdom and strength you’ll ever need in this lifetime. Seek and ye shall find.
