15 March 2022 Ego vs Intuition

Check out 15 March 2022 Tuesday chat https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1426485699

Hello to you. How are you today? I hope you are well. We finally got a few drops of rain – hopefully we will get more. We need it!

Todays messages from A Woman’s Spirit have to do with discerning the difference between our ego and our intuition:

My intuition can lead me in the right direction when my will and God’s will are one. -Kathy McGraw

Sometimes we mistake ego for intuition. Then we wonder why doors don’t open. We may try to force circumstances to meet our expectations. Our chemical dependency led us to behave this way in the past, and this behavior helped to get us here to this program. Today we are striving for times when things flow smoothly, when doors just open at just the right moment, when we experience effortless living- in short, times when our will and God’s are one. But how do we do it?

The key is to slow down and ask ourselves if what we are about to do feels right. Doing God’s will always feels right. By contrast, being driven by our own ego often feels wrong , very wrong. In our using days we were adept at ignoring the feeling that something was wrong. However, our growth through the Steps makes ignoring what is wrong impossible now. That’s good for us. And it’s even better for the people in our lives. Wanting to follow Gods will is there first step to actually following it.

My ego is always ready to jump in where God’s will is needed. Today I’ll slow down each time I’m ready to jump, and I’ll listen instead to my feelings.

There’s nothing quite like that feeling of being in the flow of all that is. Time becomes irrelevant! Why does such a feeling…such an experience seem to be such a rare thing for most of us? To only have fleeting glimpses of complete peace! I guess that’s why it’s so important to stay tuned in…mindful and aware….to remain willing to go where God is leading you. Sometimes it’s so hard to know and I guess that’s where practice comes. What I have done many times on my journey so far is ask God to show me in a language I can understand what it is I’m supposed to be doing….”show me God.” The answers do come but it’s not enough for a lifetime – sometimes an answer just for the next moment. After all what is time to God?! Be willing…….
