We cultivate the inner guiding voice when we pay attention to messages from the world around us. My friend Ravi calls this practice "tracking." We often point to something like this and say, "Track That!" with a laugh. Ravi Walsh is a healer and life coach in Ithaca, NY. You can check out his work here.
I spotted this gem in a hostel a few years ago. It meant one thing to me then and another now that I stumbled upon the photo again. Interpretations can change over time as our lives do. That's how guidance works; the inner voice moves with us.
Pay attention: what messages show up for you today? Is this one of them? What does it mean to you?
