Did you ever hear the expression: I can’t hear myself think If I’m honest, I admit it’s my own busy mind that is creating the difficulty.
To focus and really hear what I think or what my heart is calling for I need some quiet. And sometimes I need to sort myself out in the presence of a trusted friend or confidant.
At times I need a spiritual guide who can listen to me from a place of personal strength, someone who has honed a non-judgmental attitude and is wise in the ways of the human heart.
Often a session with a guide sets me back on my feet, puts my plight into perspective or opens a path I wouldn’t have dared to take without walking around my options with this experienced guide.
I wanted to write about spiritual guidance at the Christine Center because I’m aware of how many of you come here seeking private time with one of our highly experienced spiritual guides. Each of the four women have been recognized for her insightful compassion. People of all ages, from every walk of life come through the door for their private session.
Some of you perhaps have never had such an hour and are puzzled about how it goes. You might wonder why or when to seek individual time to process your unique experience. I suggest listen to your heart. It will lead you.
Some people look forward to this sacred time when they come on retreat; some annually, some seasonally. It’s a way to take stock or get motivated. Seek a spiritual guide as often as you feel the need to refocus or to sort through the challenges that come pell-mell uninvited into your life leaving you bereft, or in grief, or seemingly disempowered.
With spiritual guidance I come to stillness, to inner joy. I find confidence that all will be well and all manner of things will be well. Consider what it might offer you.
