GOD WHISPERS (OR LONGINGS FROM OUR HEARTS) January 9, 2014 by mevanow Leave a Comment A little over two years ago, a very respected friend working along side myself and others on a mutual project used a phrase that has stuck with me and made me think…. She told us about her “God Whispers”. What are those? She described these”God Whispers” as slight longings and inklings to do something, say something, or move towards something new. For my friend, these were the Divine’s way of directing us. Whether we attribute these inner callings to God, the Divine, the Great Spirit, the Universal Energy, or simply the human spirit, these soft sounds of our heart’s longing for something greater, better, simpler, or more fulfilling – they DESERVE OUR ATTENTION! As we move along our life’s path, these inner longings, these soft stirrings, can be likened to navigation equipment, a compass for direction in our life and our choices along our life’s path. SHOULD WE LISTEN AND FOLLOW THESE STIRRINGS? These messages from the self, the divine, or the human spirit, are just that. Messages. We need to listen to what they are telling us. Many times the message is simple and straightforward… WE ARE NO LONGER SATISFIED WITH SOME PART OF OUR LIFE. Sometimes it is more subtle, harder for us to decipher… SOMETHING WITHIN US HAS SHIFTED, WE ARE NO LONGER BOUND TO WHAT WAS ONCE CENTRAL TO OUR BEING, WE FEEL LOST. Whether we heed these “God Whispers”, or evaluate them out, depends on many things. Again, we have choices about what we do and where we head down our path in life. Where we end up is about what we do with those inner longings and the meaning we make of them. When you experience your next “God Whispers” or inner voice telling you to pay attention to something, what will you do? Will you stop and pay attention to what the message is and where it is directing you to move? REMEMBER, IT IS YOUR PATH! YOU CHOOSE!
