You can’t change other people – no one can change you and no one can force you to change. Change is something that’s done from within. If you don’t want it for yourself, it’ll never happen. Your soul could be craving it, but if you ignore it it’ll never happen. You’ll feel the pain from not listening though and that’s what people don’t seem to understand. If your gut is telling you, that’s your inner voice – you need to listen. You cannot be someone else’s inner voice for them. You can wish for other’s to “wake up” and make positive changes in their life, but until they want it for themselves it’ll never take place.

That’s why you’ll notice that a lot of times people don’t get that “wake up” call we all talk about until something devastatingly tragic and unfortunate occurs. This is because a Higher Power is working to guide you. You can ignore it all you want but God has a way of making things happen. Tossing things in your path or making other ventures not work out just to steer you to where you need to go. So it’s important for us to listen to the voice within. It’s not that God can’t handle the tough jobs of knocking some sense into us, no it’s the complete opposite – he can, he will and he’ll blow your mind doing it. But it’s unnecessary when you already know inside of you what you need to do. Drop the stubbornness, the spite, the pity, worry, doubt and fear and take a leap of faith. Today’s Daily Affirmation is:

I will listen to my intuition and not be stubborn when it speaks.
