Guidance from Higher Power

I am reading a book called "Inner bonding" written by Margaret Paul.  It  is an amazing book and I would love to share a part of the book that struck me.    We so often forget to dialoge with our higher power or don't realize that we can get guidance  from our higher power.  When we are feeling bad, mad, sad, angry or whatever were feeling we can get an amazing amount of info just by listening to our feelings.  There is always a reason for feeling the way we do.  If you cant tell what your feelings are trying to tell you, you can ask your higher power for guidance.  A couple questions that you can ask your higher power is
1) What is the truth about this belief that is limiting me or causing me pain?
2) What is the loving behavior in this situation?

An example may be if you have an arguement with your spouse, child or friend.  We might feel guilt or shame or feel that there is something wrong with us. That we are flawed in some way.  That is the limiting belief.  The truth may be that everybody disagrees at times and that you and they are entitled to their own opinions.  There is nothing wrong with you. 

When you allow yourself to dissect those beliefs and feel your feelings you can take steps to correct the misperceptions and limiting beliefs.

A loving behavior could be finding support from friends or taking some time to yourself or remove yourself from the situation. 

Thanks for letting me share this with you.  I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend.
