Are you fighting two sides of you?
We've all been at various points in our lives where we fight our inner demons to determine which way to turn to achieve success. These inner battles are actually quite necessary because they are what lead to both a spiritual healing and emotional healing process of the mind, body, and spirit. While you may not think it's important to use meditation to develop your intuition at these times in our lives, quite the opposite is true. In fact, when you are battling the "two sides of you," it is the perfect time to promote healing through meditation. It enables you to quiet the mind so that you can hear the voice that is working diligently to get your attention.
When I talk about the "two sides of you," I'm referring to the inner struggle of the mind and soul - one side of you truly wants to manifest success in all areas of your life; the other side of you feels like giving up on your dreams because of current economic situations, past emotional traumas, physical health conditions, or relationship problems, among others. On which side are you presently focused? I know that sometimes I get lazy and when that happens I become the perfect target for weakness and negativity to enter into my life.
To better explain the "two sides of you," there's an old story, where a man tells his grandson about two battling wolves that dwell within our spirit. One wolf is gentle and good-natured; while the other wolf is filled with anger and other negative emotions. Each metaphorical wolf wants to dominate the individual's spirit. The grandson, in his amusement, asks his grandfather, "Which one wins?" To which, the grandfather replies, "The one you feed." This simple story relays how intuition and emotional healing can play a vital part in bringing about success in one's life. I encourage you to be conscious of which wolf you are feeding today.
