Empowered Unrealized Knowledge
Your Inner Knowingness
by Valery Satterwhite
Have you ever looked at your pet and knew exactly what he wanted to “say” to you? Have you ever noticed someone’s body language that communicated something contrary to what they were saying? Have you ever had a gut feeling that something you were about to do wouldn’t result in a good outcome? Have you ever had a hunch that turned out to be right?
If your answer is yes then you are familiar with examples of your innate knowingness. You are able to sense the truth without explanation. When this knowledge presents itself “out of the blue” it feels a little a magical. This empowered unrealized knowledge is delivered to you through your Inner Wizard, the voice of your intuition and inspiration.
I once showed up at the airport three hours early to pick up my sister who was returning home from a business trip. I don’t know why I showed up early. All I know is that I felt a sudden strong urge to get in the car and head to the airport long before her scheduled arrival. The urge was undeniable so I got in the car and headed for the airport. I got there just in time to see her come out of baggage claim and park herself on the bench. As she was pulling her cell phone out of her purse to call me, I drove up to the curb in front of her and opened the door. We both just looked at each other for a stunned moment and then laughed.
I can’t explain it. I had no way of knowing that my sister caught an earlier flight at the last minute. I just had a knowingness that I had to get to the airport early.
Someone once asked rocker Tom Petty how he wrote hit song after hit song after hit song. He paused for what seemed like an eternity and responded that he really didn’t know how. Didn’t want to know how as the knowing might ‘jinx it’. He just sits down and the music spills through him. Not out of him, through him.
These are examples of the Inner Wizard having at work – and having a good time.
Your Inner Wizard operates beyond time and space and is sometimes called your higher self, your soul or your spirit. It is the playful child within you that knows your truth, your passions and your desires. When problems surface your Inner Wizard provides quick and efficient answers to your problems letting you know what the best course of action to take to overcome the issue at hand.
A life lead by this Inner Wizard, this empowered knowingness, gives you boundless energy and joy.
However, your Inner Wizard is often lost in the “noise” of other thoughts and physical feelings voiced by another part of you, your Inner Critic. Your Inner Critic serves up self-doubt and fear to hold you back, limit you to keep you safe from what it fears. Your Inner Critic fears the unknown so it doesn’t like to venture beyond right where it is – in its comfort zone, even if you don’t like being there. You’ve heard this voice. It is the voice that says you can’t or aren’t (good, rich, smart, worthy, etc.) enough to be, do or have what you want in life.
There’s an easy way to tell which part of you is empowered. If it’s your Inner Wizard then you feel good, if not great! If it’s your Inner Critic, then you don’t feel so good. You lack energy. You’re swimming upstream instead of with the flow of life.
The only thing stopping you from being, doing and having what you want in life is – you! It is that part of you, the Inner Critic, that stops you through self-doubt and fear. The good news is you can easily learn how to recognize the difference between your Inner Wizard and your Inner Critic. You can learn how to tame your Inner Critic and empower your Inner Wizard. It takes a willingness to change and a commitment to the work. And the work can be a joy ride!
People believe things can be serious, important or useful or they can be fun, enjoyable or pleasing. But they can’t be both. This belief is just that – a belief, not a truth. The journey of self-awareness and transformation to empower your Inner Wizard is serious, important and very definitely useful AND a heck of a lot of fun. The result of the work is a rich delicious life – and that’s certainly an enjoyable and pleasing experience!
