Today’s Wisdom reflection focuses on the wisdom already inside of you just waiting for your time and attention.

Too often we look outside of ourselves for the answers to the “who, what, where, when, how and why” questions that arise in our daily living. We consult therapists, advisers, friends, family, confidants, strangers, magazines, self-help books … I could go on (because I’ve consulted them ALL, literally …), but you get the point.

Of course there is great value is seeking good counsel but the answers to the essential questions of life are already inside of us, signaling to us constantly through our intuition and spoken in the language of our soul. And of course Glinda the Good Witch from The Wizard of Oz knew all along: “You have always had the power”.

So I offer the wisdom below from The Daily OM to you to reflect on and consider.

As Clarrisa Pinkola Estes says, “all that you are seeking is also seeking you.” It’s inside of you just waiting for your wants to connect with your wisdom.

Be well … and wise!

“Many of us seek the answers to life’s questions by looking outside of ourselves and trying to glean advice from the people around us. But as each of us is unique, with our own personal histories, our own sense of right and wrong, and our own way of experiencing the world that defines our realities, looking to others for our answers is only partially helpful.

The answers to our personal questions can be most often found by looking within. When you realize that you always have access to the part of you that always knows what you need and is meant to act as your inner compass, you can stop searching outside of yourself.

If you can learn to hear, trust, and embrace the wisdom that lives within you, you will be able to confidently navigate your life.”
