I don’t find it hard to hear my inner voice. I find it hard to follow its advice.
If I don’t listen then events go from mild irritation to full-blown chaos.
I can count many times there was chaos and for a very long time.
It is easier to ignore that inner voice than to follow its advice because I don’t want to make effort. Effort involves a commitment to action which leads to change. Change is scary and hard to do because of the uncertainty involved.
I find that when I do have the courage or stamina to follow its advice I win every time.
I guess practice makes perfect.
