Consciousness knows what feels right inside. It’s not a thought process, it’s just a knowing. When we’re listening on this level, we don’t actually get to decide, our job is to listen, trust and follow.
Often times when we are really listening, we don’t particularly like the answer. We might try to manipulate it, because something in us fears what we might have to face, lose or be challenged with if we follow.
However it’s when we don’t follow that there is a painful consequence of some kind.
