    “What would happen if I let love lead in this moment?”

    Then, listen inwardly for guidance. You may receive it through an inner voice, an image, or a thought that pops into your mind, a “gut feeling.”

    Step 3

    Check out any guidance you receive. If it could bring harm to you or others, don’t act on it. If it points you towards health, wealth, and happiness, towards fulfillment and expansion, you can then move in that direction with confidence.

    Step 4

    Think of another area you wish to improve. Sit in a comfortable, safe place. Allow your attention to drift inward. Ask yourself, “If I let love lead me in this situation, where would I go and what would I do next?”

    If at first the answers don’t come easily, don’t be discouraged. Just getting to the point where you can ask the question shows that your intention is good and that you’re moving in the right direction.

    When you are in contraction, you can begin to move into a state of expansion by coming back to the question, “Where does love lead me right now?” Love always leads you into living from the inside out. It allows you to stay within yourself and realize that:

    Who you are is enough. Regardless of what anybody else thinks, you can love yourself. You can love your mistakes as much as you love your successes.
