“Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson
I would like for you to become your own personal development master. My job is to help you to remember what you already know.
When I discovered personal development back in the mid 1990’s, I was instantly captivated by reading and learning about personal growth.
The more I read and absorbed, the more I realized that I wasn’t happy with where I was. Major changes needed to happen in my life, but I didn’t know how I would be able to make this happen.
I started with reading books and listening to audiotapes about the subjects that were of interest to me. I learned a lot, and as a result my thinking changed dramatically.
While reading a book by Wayne Dyer, I realized that these books or their authors were not teaching me anything. What they were actually doing, was helping me to remember what I had forgotten.
There are topics on my blog that seem to repeat itself. That is by intent, the more your hear something, the more likely you are to remember it.
I often will go back to books or audio programs to remember something that I had forgotten. ( By the way, you can go to the audio section of your local library and borrow personal growth programs for free.)
I would like to give you some tools that you can actually use in life.
I will also point you in the direction to people or resources that could help you even more than I can.
My goal is to help you learn how to get into alignment with your own inner resource center.
Your internal resource center can either help you come up with the answers, or it can direct you to someone or something that can help you.
How to use your internal resource center
It is actually quite simple to use your inner resource center.
First you must remain still and quiet both mentally and physically. Focus your attention on your breathing first, and then your heart chakra second.
What this will do is calm your mind and body long enough to receive the information that you are looking for.
Some people call it meditation, I look at like my body is idling like a car engine.
I basically turn all my attention and focus towards myself.
Keep in mind that I turn down the volume on my thoughts and inner voice, because this would distract my attention.
Next you will have to trust your own inner guidance. Allow it to guide you to your destination. The information, question, physical object you are looking for, will miraculously appear within your reach.
You will have to keep up this state of mind for it to work. Do not allow any distractions from outside of you to interfere with your inner guidance system.
I use this all the time to find answers for questions that I have.
When I am searching for information on how to do something, I will use this method. I may either receive the information through thought, or I will find it rather easily searching the internet.
This saves me a lot of time when I am learning something new.
I started using this method to find books to read at the bookstore. I would say to myself, take me to a book that can answer this question I have.
I would take my ego out of the equation, and just follow my intuition.
What ever book jumped out at me, I would read. Without fail, my question would always be answered in the book that I was reading.
Word of caution when you are using your intuition. Intuition may cause you to feel ungrounded, so use discretion as to when and where you use it.
This is basic how to use your intuition 101. Intuition is your inner resource center and we all are able to access it.
Becoming your own guru will help build confidence in yourself and your abilities. You are indeed a master you just have to tune into your “mastery” again and use it.
This method will allow you to be your own guru.
You will not have to keep asking people for their opinion or advice unless you want to.
This may also give you some freedom from any dependent relationships that you might have. Try this method as soon as you can, and let me know your results. 🙂
