The focus for today is: I give myself time to be separate and silent, allowing deep and guided knowing to emerge.
As things occur around us, and to us, we may find ourselves confused as to what direction to take. We all have access to our inner wisdom. But it is usually not found at the surface where all the noise and chatter resides. It is deeper in the quiet, in the calm center of our being.
When animals are ill or wounded, they go off by themselves and seek quiet time. In the same way, when we are wounded or challenged by life, emotionally or physically, that is the time to go off to our quiet space and allow our deep inner knowing and wisdom to come forth.
The Lakota Sweat Lodge card for Wisdom states: "Wisdom links the intuitive feelings with the facts and information known to the mind. When you act from a place of wisdom, you allow guidance, opening yourself to the information provided by the universe... Act upon what you feel as well as what you know." Today's Daily Inspiration is excerpted from the InnerSelf.com article:

This week's Daily Inspirations are inspired from:
CARD DECK & BOOK: The Lakota Sweat Lodge Cards
The Lakota Sweat Lodge Cards: Spiritual Teachings of the Sioux by Chief Archie Fire Lame Deer and Helene Sarkis.
This book and beautifully illustrated deck draw on the ancient Lakota ritual of healing and purification known as the sacred Inipi, or sweat lodge ceremony, which has existed in the Lakota culture for thousands of years.
The cards and accompanying book comprise a self-contained and highly original system that will help you harness creative energies to deal with issues that are of concern in your life. Used for self-discovery rather than divination, the cards gently guide you toward inner growth and self-knowledge in the time-honored tradition of the Lakota people.
