Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.
“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf
“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

Intuition...a practical approach part 2
Intuition cannot speak to us unless we are fully awake. This is the crux and heart of the whole topic. Part of my daily prayer is that my consciousness continue to awaken. And as I do, I begin to see, hear and feel the ways intuition speaks to me. Perhaps it is a sense that something isn't quite right. Or maybe it's that I shouldn't do something or other. It might be that I'm supposed to let go of all my chores and take a walk.
If I'm too busy, or too distracted, or rushing to get through my to-do list, I may miss the messages that are trying to get through. So each day, I work on being more fully present with each step I take.
Sometimes this means doing nothing...
