“Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves….”
– Rainer Maria Rilke
If you haven’t heard this quote before, it’s an excerpt from a poem by the poet Rainer Maria Rilke. There are certainly many times in life where the answers aren’t forthcoming, no matter how hard you try to get them, and you must be content to just love the questions. However, there are moments where you could experience answers that are pivotal to guiding you in the direction you want to go, where, in fact, you must go, yet, you’re not in the space where you can hear these answers. So how do you get there?
The best way to connect with the inner guidance and inner wisdom you already have is to be able to get quiet enough to hear what your highest self is trying to tell you. But to connect to your highest self, you really need to be vibrating at a high level and that takes both awareness and a commitment to spend the time to achieve and maintain that higher vibration.
One of the first things you’ll want to do to achieve a higher vibration, is to get into your heart space and taking the time to concentrate on nothing but your heartbeat and your breathing. It will help you to connect with your inner wisdom. Quite often, you do have all the answers within you but if you are living in the world at the world’s pace without taking the time to go inward, you’ll never find those answers. The external noise is just too loud and will drown everything else out. Meditation will also get you vibrating at a higher level and that’s key to being able to hear the answers that are within you.
When you are vibrating at a higher level, you are open to receiving things you are unable to receive when you are putting out a lower level vibration. Many of the answers that you’ve been seeking will magically seem to appear and without effort when you raise your vibration. This is key, because there are so many people who seem to have really great lives but who are walking around unhappy and dissatisfied. This is because they are carrying around deep, unanswered questions, so they are living lives that aren’t authentic to who the really are. They are living lives that aren’t reflective of who they really want to be. Don’t be one of these people!
To live the life you love and live the life you want to live, you need to love the questions and then you need to be able to be in a place where you can hear, receive and then act on the answers that are coming to you…the answers that are already deep inside of you. It’s really all there, you just need to connect with your higher self. When you do that, all of those big questions will start having big answers and when you have big answers, you can live a life that is authentic and joyful.
