Trust Your Inner Voice

Updated: Mar 24

As we go about our day, we need to take the time to pay attention to what is happening all around us. During a recent road trip to visit my family, I encountered a few moments that would have caused frustrations and delays if I had let them. However, I was able to navigate them successfully by paying close attention to my surroundings and listening to and trusting my inner voice.

For instance, first, my inner voice warned me to look in the rearview mirror as I was about to change lanes on the expressway. I followed the warning and was immediately surprised to see a speeding car quickly approaching behind me. Then, a strong feeling came over me to stay in my lane. The car whizzed close behind me and quickly switched into the lane that I would have entered. The driver was very reckless, dodging in and out of traffic. I noticed that other drivers were also slowing down to give them a clear path.

I cautiously continued my travel, becoming more aware of what was happening in the present moment. As I got closer to my family's home, I encountered a train that was stopped on the tracks, causing a long line of waiting cars. Once again, my inner voice urged me to turn around and return to the expressway to bypass the train.

Finally, I arrived at my family's house. They lived just on the other side of the train tracks. I noticed the train was still sitting in a stopped position, and the drivers were still patiently waiting on both sides.

That experience taught me that it's important to be present in the moment, trust your inner voice, be prepared to slow down, and be open to taking a different route if necessary.

If we are open to listening, we can receive profound information and warnings in moments like these. Trusting our inner voice, intuition, instincts, or whatever we call it can save us time, frustration, and unfortunate incidents.
