Guidance

Guidance comes to us in so many ways.  But in our modern world of scientific, left-brain analytic information, it takes a deliberate effort to rediscover the ancient ways of wisdom guidance.  Dreams, intuition, psychic abilities, the right-brain creative capacities that are heart-based, rather than mind-based… we all have these faculties, but their signals are so much more subtle than what we’re accustomed to, we have to learn to hear them.  Cynthia Bourgeault, in “The Wisdom Way of Knowing: Reclaiming an Ancient Tradition to Awaken the Heart” lists some tools for opening up to hear this heart-based guidance: presence, meditation, sacred chanting, lectio divina, surrender.  In what ways does guidance come to you?
