It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.
In my early thirties, I planned a wilderness adventure with a male friend during which I ignored my inner voice and almost died. Not really, but the situation could have turned out very differently.
We were going to explore a part of the Utah desert I wasn’t familiar with. With that being said, I had spent a lot of time hiking and backpacking. I was comfortable making safe decisions. We arrived in my car and he was driving. This was the first mistake.
A huge storm was building. The howling wind made it difficult to hear each other; it was also blowing sand into our eyes and covering our tracks. My friend wanted to separate and hike on different trails. My gut instinct was shouting at me to say no. I was unfamiliar with the trails and the weather was turning crazy. After yelling over the wind, I reluctantly agreed to his plan.
I knew immediately that I should have listened to my inner voice.
It didn’t take long for me to get lost. I did not have enough water or any food. I broke every rule I knew about staying safe. It did no good to call out; the wind was too loud. There was not another soul around for miles, except the person who wanted to ditch me in the first place. I was so mad at myself for not honoring what I knew to be the best decision.
I found myself trying to remain calm. I was hot, thirsty, and lost. The landscape was bone dry; there was even a cow skeleton. Eventually, I found a small algae-filled puddle. On my knees, I sucked up the nasty-tasting water. Not long after finding the water, I discovered the trail that led me back to my car. That was a great relief, but I could not get in the car. My friend had the keys.
What was I thinking? I ignored my intuition. In the end, everything was fine. In fact, something positive came out of what was potentially a bad situation. I learned to value my gut instinct.
Before you can truly appreciate the top three reasons to listen to your inner voice, you need to recognize this very special part of you. Your internal guide, also known as your intuition, comes from a place of greater awareness. This part of you carries a feeling of strength and purpose and feels good.
If you hear a voice spewing negative thoughts about you, this is fear, not your inner voice. Recognizing fear-based thoughts versus your intuition can be a very powerful self-awareness tool.
Now you are ready to learn the beautiful and mystical truth of the voice that guides you:
You are now aware of just a few of your powerful connections. Begin keeping a journal of the messages you receive and how you feel. As your trust in the intuitive process builds, your mind and heart will begin to open up. This is the first step to creating a magical life.

Discovering the quiet sanctuary inside allows space for tenderness and advanced forms of love to manifest themselves in your world.
We say advanced forms of love because you will shift your perception of love to remembering all that you see is created by love.
From that perception, you will remember that YOU ARE THE AWARENESS. The awareness is not outside of you; the awareness is you.
Your innermost connection to all that is holds your internal sanctuary.
This is where your voice of eternal wisdom can be found.
We wait for you to remember.
