Awaken the Voice of Your Heart

When you don’t know the answer to your own question, who do you seek? As children we seek the nearest adult in most situations. At school we ask teachers or peers for help. At home we find a family member. When we become adults we sometimes struggle finding that person to trust.

During a time of change and challenges I discovered the value of putting words on the page. I sat and quieted the monkey chatter in my brain using a writing process a friend shared. Eventually I recognized that I had within me a strong voice that was not my Ego. This voice did not always give me specific answers to my questions. I did receive a quiet assurance. I learned that this voice was the voice of my Creator who spoke through my heart, not my logical mind. I included a poem I wrote in 2005 during one of my moments of quieting the monkey chatter. My hope is that as individuals move forward along the journey, time is taken to listen to the voice of the Creator.

I challenge you to find a process to quiet the monkey chatter that comes from the Ego. When this occurs, what does your heart tell you during your quiet moments? Consider writing out those messages in a journal. If you have not yet found a way to quiet the monkey chatter, feel free to contact me for guidance.

Key Question: What does your heart tell you during your quiet moments?

Awaken My Spirit

I’ve been walking in the wilderness, not hearing

The Voice calling me. I knew the Voice but

That which was once clear had become cloudy. The path

I began had disappeared and I knew not where I

Was going. A day came upon which I could struggle no more and I felt

myself

Giving in to the Voice. Where am I? I asked.

Who am I to be?

I’ve been walking in the wilderness, experiencing

Life as one of the chosen. I knew stones and

Thorns were necessary but still I stumbled not asking for the

Healing only the Voice could give. Without the strength

To continue I crawled to the Voice in my weakness.

I want the healing, humbly I called.

I am here, abide in me, answered the Voice.

I’ve been walking in the wilderness, no longer

Wanting to be there. I knew there was a

Light but it was so dim. The Voice spoke clearly

When I opened up within. The Voice drew out the

Spirit releasing the pain and truths. I don’t want to

Fall, I cry. I am tired and don’t want the pain and

Heaviness anymore.

I’ve been walking in the wilderness, finally

Knowing I am not alone. I knew there was strength

In others. I don’t know where to go, I explained. And,

The Voice led me to them who do. The truths continue

During this journey. There is a renewing as

I find the path again. Strong roots share their understanding

And wisdom. I draw upon their discernment

As my spirit awakens.

Awaken the Spirit

Written by Kelly Eveleth on . Posted in General

Are you at a point when you wonder about the chaos of our world? The advancement of technology has allowed us to see our world in a different perspective than our parents or grandparents. While the chaos may be present, so is the opportunity for calming one’s self by growing in an understanding of our Creator’s Spirit.

The Spirit that roams across our earth is very active. Understanding of the Spirit is expanding and now influences many people through contemporary and past spiritual leaders. Our technology has given us a means to communicate with people all over the world which allows us to grow in our spiritual practice. A few years ago I was introduced to the teachings of Deepak Chopra. His spiritual practices and ways of teaching made a significant impact on my way of thinking. The first book of Chopra that I read was The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. While I previously thought I knew my core spiritual beliefs, after reading this book the first time I realized I didn’t know my own beliefs. In this book Chopra asked questions that no one else had asked me. I reread the book and began taking notes, creating a journal of what I truly believed.

The expansion of current technology allows many opportunities for engaging in global conversations on the topic of spiritual practice. I have found Deepak Chopra’s website to be a good resource.  Many tools to support spiritual growth are available and Deepak Chopra has also partnered with Oprah Winfrey. They have created a Meditation Series that I have found of great value.

The questions to consider are: “Am I content with my spiritual beliefs?” “Do I want to grow in my spiritual practice?”

Awaken the Mind

Often we are placed in a situation when a critical decision is necessary. In our modern American culture most of the time we have choices, this is what defines our freedom. And yet, with that freedom to choose, comes responsibility. Many times I find myself stuck, not knowing what to do in a situation. This is why I love the life coaching process and my coaches.

Jon J. Muth retells Tolstoy’s story “The Three Questions” in an illustrated children’s book. Muth creatively puts this literature piece into a setting that appeals to children. Muth also writes with a sophistication for adults to ponder. This story is in a sense a principle belief for many life coaches.

If you are not familiar with Tolstoy’s short story “The Three Questions” then visit the on-line link for a free reading. Also consider investing in the book created by Muth also titled “The Three Questions.”  I also encourage you to share this book with a child in your life.

The questions to ponder are: “What is the right time for every action? Who are the most important people? How do I know what is the most important thing to do?”  

Consider a time each week, month, and season to answer the three questions for insight on your journey. If the mind knows the answers to these questions, I believe a person is awake to the most important things in life.
