InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

November 16, 2023

This Daily Inspiration was written by Marie T. Russell.

The focus for today is:  I always have access to insights and inspiration.

Video version

When we remain open to new ideas, we then can receive insights and inspiration. These come to us more easily when we are relaxed rather than stressed, playful rather than stern, and unhurried rather than rushed.

The best ideas are the ones that come naturally. This could be when we are taking a solitary walk, or taking a shower, or right on the edge of sleep as we relax in bed.

No matter what is going on in our life, we always have access to insights and inspiration. We simply have to stop, or at least slow down, and open our senses to the messages and guidance that are always present. 

Today's inspiration was adapted from the article:
