Are you aware of your inner truth?
Are you living your best possible life? If you think not, then you are not aware of your inner truth. But in the first place, what is inner truth and what does it have to do with living our life?
The whole world runs on fundamental principles, laws of nature, and other laws, which determine the destiny and govern the purpose and destiny of man, that all of us discover all the time. A law is something that always seems to happen and these principles are not physical laws like the Law of Gravity. On the contrary, these are principles that work in us as human beings and our aspirations and relationships.
This is the same with inner truth, which key principle to life is ‘living, sowing, and growing.’ It lives in silence and we have a difficult time accessing it or listening to it because we live with the noise, anxieties, destructive habits, and distractions. We cannot turn to our inner truth because it seems like there is another voice, which is the voice of fear, guiding us or multiple people speaking to us.
For that reason, we neglect our own well-being in pursuit of approval from others. We crave material possessions and worldly success. Our attention is diverted away from what is going on inside. There stands a high wall of negativity in the way of our inner truth.
But how important is the inner truth?
Your inner truth is a part of you that deeply knows what you truly need. It gives you a clear idea of what you want. It is the part of you that holds the deepest expression of who you are. It is worth your time to slow down, quiet down and listen to your inner truth because it always speaks to you, guides you, points out your flaws for you… you only need to access it and listen to it.
You need to find it.
In reality, your inner truth is never lost, only you cannot access it. It is more like you have been disconnected from your inner truth.
When we talk about how to find your inner truth, it is about looking and moving within yourself and reconnecting with your inner truth. Here are 5 best ways to get you started:
What better way to temper the voice of fear and the other voices in your head and quiet the mind than to meditate? Meditation is the way to discover yourself in silence. It helps you turn your attention inward and connect to your inner truth. It creates the atmosphere that allows you to easily open up yourself to hear your inner truth.
- Express yourself
What’s stopping you from knowing your inner truth? Express yourself and develop your inner truth in a myriad of ways through the arts. Creativity and inner truth go together. The arts, in many ways, help sustain your inner truth and through the arts, you wake up to your inner truth. By expressing yourself creatively, you acknowledge your inner truth and the gifts you receive to develop your inner truth.
- Get feedback
Other people are the mirrors that can show you things that you do not know about yourself, things that can be realized in no other way. Everyone in your life has a message for you. As reflections, people show what you need to change about yourself while others are meant to inspire you to become the person you are meant to be. Ask sincerely and if you are open enough, you will learn more about who you are through the eyes of others.
- Make strong affirmations
You can alter your life by altering the attitude of your mind by creating powerful, positive affirmations. When you create affirmations, focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want. Don’t say, “I don’t want to become sad, depressed, and lonely” say “I want to become happy and loved.” Whether you want to become someone or achieve something, believe and affirm it. Know what you really want to say ‘yes’ to and you will continue to say ‘yes’ to everything else that’s right for you.
- Know how you feel
How you feel helps you know what is true or important to you, what you are drawn to, and what decision to make. However, you need to be wary of the emotions that seem destructive, especially caused by painful experiences. They don’t help clarify your inner truth but only cause you to wallow in your misery. Expressing that pain and misery in any art form will help to clear these emotions out of your mind so you can connect to a deeper level of feeling that can help you know how and when to act as well as what is right for you.
