Journaling is one of the ways that I can easily tap into my intuition. Ever since I went through The Artists Way many years ago I have been using this medium to access my Inner Guidance.
In this book, the author, Julia Cameron recommends that every morning to write three long-hand pages of stream of consciousness. Whatever is jumbled up in your head write it out. I find that by page two or three the garbage has spewed out onto the pages and I can then ask questions to my Inner Guidance System.
This is also called automatic writing. I ask the question and then begin writing whatever flows through me. For instance, this morning I heard the message, “You’ve got this!” I’ve asked questions about diet, exercise and of course men and always received a message that may not have been what I wanted to hear but always what I needed to. Each time the information that comes through sounds like a voice other than my own. I hear the words and put down on the page what comes through. Sometimes I think I am making it all up but that doesn’t really matter. The information that comes through is always spot on.
Some automatic writers seem to have the pen move across the page of their own accord. Whether you hear a voice like I do or your pen glides across the page I invite you to experiment and give it a try.
Have you ever tried this exercise before? If so, share your experiences with others here.
Book Recommendation: Conversations with God by Neale Donald Walsch. The entire book was written through the process of automatic writing.

In the beginning was the breath. The Breathe of Life breathed us into being. It is through the breath that we access our intuition. It is through the breath that we remember our connection to Source Energy.
A long deep breath cleanses the body and calms the mind. It brings us into stillness where we can listen to the voice of our Higher Wisdom.
Try it with me now. Inhale slowly and deeply. Now exhale completely. And, once again. Inhale. And, exhale. Notice how everything slows down. The anxiety leaves. The worry melts away. If you don’t feel lighter, keep breathing until you do.
Now ask a question to your Higher Self. Maybe it’s a simple question about general guidance for the day. Perhaps its as serious as “Is it in my highest good to stay in this marriage?” Now, breathe again slowly and deeply. Breathing will help you stay connected and grounded as the answer emerges.
How The Answers Come
In my experience, the answers to my questions don’t always come right away. They may show up in the early morning hours before I get out of bed. I may hear an internal voice that guides my way, or a friend will say something that resonates within me. I have even received answers while reading a book. My most significant indicator is my body. I may sense the answer to my question, and then I will get an overall feeling of rightness in my body that solidifies the guidance I am receiving. I feel it to my bones, so to speak.
I would love to hear how Guidance speaks to you. Leave your comments below.

Are you living in a fishbowl? Often the walls we have erected around us may feel safe, but there is no room for expansion. When the walls are glass, it is even harder to recognize how limited we have become. We can see out, and others can see in so we think we are out there in the world, but love cannot touch us on either side of the glass.
Are you ready to crack the glass and swim out into the vast ocean of life? Know that it is o.k. if you are not. The first step is the willingness to see your bowl. From there the Universe steps in to help. You are never without support.
I have been struggling with finding the right and perfect diet for my body. This is not a new struggle. I’ve been exploring this most of my adult life. If there is a diet out there, I have tried it. .. and failed.
I get a new book on the latest fad diet and inhale the information. I go down the youtube rabbit hole and ultimately feel frustrated by all the conflicting information.
When tuning into Guidance this morning, I got that knowledge leads us to intuition but it is not the end result.
Being armed with knowledge can actually get in the way of hearing our intuition. So my answer this morning regarding my diet is to eat more veggies. That is the one thing all of these diets I’ve been researching have in common.
Disclaimer: I am not looking for a weight loss supplement so no solicitations please. My journey is to find the best way to eat for my body for optimal health.

As I consult the runes for wisdom this day, I hear Uruz inviting me to descend into darkness. This is not the dark night of the soul as in times past. I am called into the Womb of the Divine Mother. In this space, I am restored before the moment of rebirth.
I can rest here for a while as I wait on the will of heaven.
Today is a good day to pull in your scattered energies and listen to your intuition. What are the messages being offered that you may not be aware of?
One of the ways to achieve going inward is by placing your fingertips and thumb tips together as if you are holding a ball. Now rest this mudra in front of your solar plexus and begin to breathe long, slow and deep. Notice how when your breath slows down your mind slows down. The quieter the mind can become the more you are able to tap into awareness. Now ask Spirit what message does It have for you today? Listen in the stillness for your answers.
Definition – a means of access or entry to a new way of being.
Are you ready Guidance asks?
Today’s word beckons you forth on your journey of discovery. You are on the precipice of something big. Change is coming and we are being asked to be courageous in stepping through to the other side. The old way of life may be comfortable and complacent but is it joyous? Are you living your dreams or someone else?
To be sure you are ready Guidance asks us to pause and reflect before we step through that Gateway. Is there anything left unfinished? It is important not to bypass our unhealed wounds as we step into our new life. If we skip ahead we end up creating the same old life we had before.
Today’s word shows the opportunities that are available now. It also invites us to pause and reflect. Are we as ready as we think we are?
Definition – An interruption in an event, activity, process or plan.
I thought this a very strange word to be given to meditate on today. At first, I felt it was a foreshadowing of possible challenging things to come. The more I let the word settle into my being the more I realized that what my guides were teaching me is this: If we look at the word from a spiritual perspective disruption is actually Divine course correction.
It is easy for me to get caught up in my plan and doing things my way that it often takes a total disruption in my life to realize that there is often a better way.
My brother recently helped me move from Ashland, WI back to the Twin Cities. The original plan was to move the first week in November. My brother’s schedule suddenly changed and I had to be ready in three days instead of three weeks. Ack! I basically had to throw up my hands and let the Universe help. Everything flowed beautifully. All my stuff fit on my brother’s trailer (just barely), I had the help of strong people on both ends of the trip who were able to help at the absolute last-minute. We made it to the Cities without a hitch and got me all moved in. Whew! It turned out so much better than what I could have even planned.
I invite you to look at your plans today. Are they flowing easily? Or, is “something” gently nudging you in a different direction? Pay attention to the disruptions in your life. There may be something better trying to get your attention.

This morning I was contemplating my life purpose. Wondering what it is all for and why am I here. When I posed the question to Guidance this morning they said this. Be the best human you can be.
Yes, but what does that mean, I asked? We can tell you what it doesn’t mean. You have been programmed to believe that your life purpose has to be some grand expression of self. It doesn’t. There was one Mother Theresa, one Louise Hay, one Buddha, one Jesus and only one You. All of these notable people have one thing in common. They were the best humans they could possibly be. That intention is going to express itself differently for each and every one of you. Sometimes it will show itself and the human will become well-known, like Wayne Dyer. Other times that expression will be quieter and only a few will ever see. When you think in this way your life purpose becomes clear. We understand your longing for more meaning in your life. That is the soul calling your best self to the surface. Once you can get past the idea that it has to look a certain way you will find peace.
During my writing practice this morning I reflected on how the energies that we are experiencing has felt much like a download. My Guidance jumped in to give me/us more information on what that means. Here is the conversation.
Della: What is being downloaded?
Guidance: More light into your DNA. That light is encoded with new programs to help you navigate consciousness more consciously. We know that sounds like a paradox but up until now, humanity has had access to only a small portion of their light. It may feel as if you are breaking your way out of a shell or even more precise a cocoon. The struggle has been real. The density you have been moving through has been very thick, much like trying to swim in honey. And, for some of you, it has even felt like quicksand.
Della: That is how I feel today. The energy feels so thick I can barely move.
Guidance: The energy isn’t thick, quite the opposite is true. You are breaking through your old programming (cocoon). But you are breaking through it valiantly. This can feel like heavy work. Once the butterfly emerges from the cocoon it is at first fragile and weak. It has to beat its wings to build strength into its body. The journey from the cocoon builds strength as well. That is what you are doing right now, building strength and preparing to fly.
Della: What do we do once we emerge from the cocoon.
Guidance:Humanity gets caught up in its wanting to “do” something. Rest a while before you take flight. You will be given direction. Don’t try to force your wings to be strong before they are ready. This is a time of integrating the new energy. You may feel tired. That is your body telling you to take some down time, rest, be still. Allow the process to unfold. Again, there is nothing for you to “do”.
I am guided here to tell you about some of the addictions/habits (old programming) that have been falling away from me this week.
Over Eating: I realized this week that I tend to eat out of boredom. Not only that but I would eat in front of my computer while watching Netflix. I made a decision to be present when I eat instead of eating distractedly in front of my computer screen. I noticed an immediate change in the quantity of food that my body needs and I feel leaner as a result.
Phone Use: What a distraction our phones are! I was always looking at Facebook, Instagram, my NPR app, etc. Even when I was bored to death of it I would still do it! The other day I deleted all those apps off my phone and I could immediately feel something shift. It was like a door closed on all the noise I was allowing into my energetic space. I have only been going on social media occasionally since and staying away from the news as much as possible.
These are addictions/habits that I have been working on shifting for years. What feels different this time is that instead of “planning” to let them go they just naturally fell away with very little “doing” on my part.
That is the beauty of the energies we are in right now. It is assisting us in letting go of what has been holding us back from being our authentic self.
