This is what happens when you DON'T follow your inner guidance

What's New at

Back in 2006, during the housing "bubble", I had it all worked out.

After the divorce in 2000, I borrowed from the equity in my house, did some remodeling, and watched the value of my home go through the roof!

At the time, my daughter was in school at the Naval Academy. I planned on waiting until she graduated, see where she was stationed, sell the house, and use the profits to retire somewhere close by (but not too close :-)

Well, we all know what happened next.

The bubble burst. And in 2007 I lost my home, my business, and my perfect plan.

The reason I am telling you about this is because I did receive warnings. Not from the news or online conspiracy theorists. I was getting clear inner guidance from my own heart.

The voice that came from my heart to my head told me to sell the house in 2006, pack up the dogs, and go. It didn't say where. Just GO.

I said, "Are you crazy? Do you know how much this house will go up in value over the next five years? I can retire on that money!!"

I wish my inner voice could have told me clearly exactly what was going to happen. Maybe I just wasn't willing to listen. I wanted to do it "my way" or the highway.

And I ended up on the highway. Broke, homeless, and with one dog in the back seat. The other one passed away that last year as a result of alzheimers. Yes, dogs can get alzheimers.

Of course, it wasn't all bad news. This experience taught me the critical importance of listening to that inner voice. And I learned some hard lessons about money, property, the banking and mortgage industry, and much more.

But I probably could have learned all of that without all the pain of losing my home. Or maybe not. Losing my home made me aware of some powerful false fear base beliefs I had about loss, which came from being a child of Holocaust survivors. Both of my parents lost everything during the war, and perhaps I was reliving that experience.

The good news is that, although my parents lost so much, they created a new life in America that was prosperous, stable, and good. I could draw from that experience as well. And I have.

I don't know what might have happened if I had sold my house when inner guidance told me to do so. I probably would have built a tiny house and would be living in Northwest Washington state right now. That would be nice. But maybe it's more important that I learned this lesson about inner guidance in a way I would never forget!

The moral of the story is, when your heart speaks - LISTEN. Take good notes. And TAKE ACTION.

These days, I ask for and listen to my heart and my inner guidance more often. Every day, in fact. I don't always like what it has to say. But if I follow through I always end up understanding why that guidance was given, and experiencing the valuable gifts and lessons I receive as a result.

It can be as simple as what to eat today. What time to go to bed. Whether or not to call a friend. How many hours I should work. Or what kind of dog bed would be best for my aging canine friend.

Most of the suffering and pain we see in this world right now is a result of not accessing and following the inner guidance we receive constantly from our own hearts.

The number of people discovering this critical truth is growing exponentially right now. I hope you will be one of them.
