Moods affect your receptivity. Moods create clouds in your receptors. A mood is like driving through smog or winding up a mountain road that is encapsulated in mist.
Moods also signal a time of shifting energy. An inner processing is taking place.
When connecting into one's inner guidance it is best to focus on connecting into a genuine feeling of neutrality on the decision and inner peace.
This can be done by writing down all your fears about the decision or direction; as well as what you WANT to happen, what you THINK will happen; as well as what you FEAR will happen.
You need to take as much time as necessary to do this until you feel more peace, calm and neutrality.
Once you have connected into your center point to become more neutral you can now ask for you inner guidance, direction or clarification.
Write down the message or impression that you receive. I also like to ask my Higher Self-Soul Self for confirmation... 3-5 confirmations :)
After you have received your insight you can then connect into the emotional aspect of the situation. If you have truly arrived at a neutral state to receive your insight this emotional aspect will be a sense of passion and you will feel energized and in joy; however not overly exuberant.
Creating an inner stillness; or more aptly a neutral state before bringing your influence into situations and acting upon your inner directive will allow a more life enhancing and fulfilling vision to be revealed.
The best way to hear the call of your Soul and the guidance of your Soul/Higher Self is through clearing the filtering and practice. It is an ancient skill from deep within. It takes time to mine for this treasure within.
