This channeling is part of a personal reading with Saint-Germain.
It's reprinted here with our client's permission."Dear Saint-Germain, I'm often confronted by my impulsive actions. Here's the problem. Instead of creating greater security for myself, I create more problems and limitations. I thought that acting boldly was the way to success. But this is not working for me. What am I doing wrong?"
My friend, you are learning through many trials and tribulations to do things one step at a time. Because of the constraints placed upon you, and the challenges you have experienced, you are learning to stop chasing after everything that worries you, and to exercise greater calm and restraint in your actions. From the perspective of your Divinity, this has been a very “good” thing for you, no matter how badly it made the human you feel at times.
My friend, when you experience periods of constraint – whether they are emotional, physical, intellectual, or financial, you are actually forced to get quiet, be still… and listen.
Learning to be quietly attentive is such an important part of getting guidance from your Soul, that it deserves greater focus in your life. Perhaps an analogy will serve to illustrate this point.
The Importance of Stillness
Imagine that you are in a large concert hall, and that you have come to listen to the world's greatest violinist play your favorite piece of music. You have always been inspired by this composition, and the virtuoso player on stage can perform it, as no one else can do. What a treat and what a privilege it is to be here tonight. All that is required of you is to sit quietly, close your eyes, open your heart, and listen to the exquisite sounds that penetrate the air.
Now imagine that instead of appreciating the importance of silent attention at this time, everyone in the concert hall is making noise. They are talking to their neighbors; they are talking on their cell phones; they are chewing gum, coughing loudly, sneezing, and otherwise making it impossible to hear the performance on stage.
Your moment of inspiration has been ruined.
So what is the point of this little example? Simply this…
Listening to the sound of your Soul, is like listening to the music of an accomplished violinist in a concert hall. Just because the violinist is playing, doesn't mean you will automatically hear the music. First of all, the environment in the concert hall must be quiet, if you are to hear anything at all. Secondly, you must pay attention. Yes, you must pay attention.
In the stillness of your being, you are able to hear the sweet sound of inspiration that your Soul is sending to you all the time. But if your mind is cluttered with worry, and your life is overcrowded with drama, your heart will find it difficult to perceive the music.
In Stillness, Right Action Is Born
It is especially important to reach a place of stillness before acting on anything important in your life. All of you have had experiences making impulsive decisions, and taking actions that you have later regretted. But your regret does not come from the unexpected outcomes of your actions. It comes from an inner recognition that you did not listen to the One Guide, your Soul, that was giving you wise and compassionate counsel all along.
Always remember to listen to the voice of your Divinity. It is there to support you. When you empty the mind of worry and anxiety, and release the need for drama in your life, you leave room for only one authentic sound to be heard – that is the sound of your Soul.
When your Soul speaks to you, it comes through very noticeably. It is crystal clear. It may be a feeling; it may be words; it may be the synchronicity of an encounter with a friend. But when it happens, you are not only able to listen, – you are also able to understand the Divine Energies that are being transmitted to you. They penetrate you, and you will find yourself acting upon these words in a way that feels inherently right to you.
The action that you take, will be action driven by clear thinking and joyful feeling. It will not be subject to your worries and confusion, your fluctuating emotions, or the unpredictable drama in your life. In your moments of quiet stillness, you will discover the inwardly-focused attention that you need to hear the Inspiration of your Soul. And this is what will propel your actions in a direction that feels right for you.
When your actions are driven by clear thoughts and joyful feelings, you will also find yourself accomplishing everything with greater ease, – and in a flow that you couldn't possibly achieve otherwise. Confused thoughts and fluctuating emotions only disturb the heart, and make the accomplishment of any task or purposeful activity seem slow and arduous.
Allow Your Sacred Moments of Stillness
So, once again, please know that your experiences of constraint have helped you appreciate this wonderful thing called inner stillness.
It is in this quiet, attentive stillness that you find your greatest inspirations. It is in this stillness that you will find the energy to initiate any kind of action, and to undertake the things that you want to accomplish in your life. And it is in this stillness that you will find all the tools and assistance you need to be supported and sustained in the world around you.
All in all, – if you allow yourself to have these sacred moments of stillness, you will achieve more than you ever could by acting impulsively, from fear, worry, or the need to find dramatic and hasty solutions to your problems.
Breathe now, and let yourself feel this.
Let yourself experience this quiet stillness that harbors the sweet sound of your Soul. This is the music that will enable you to initiate any action with purpose and clarity, and allow you to find yourself in a flow of manifesting your heart's desires.
I am here with you, and support you dearly.
I am Saint-Germain.
