Although long out of production, I’m still a raving fan of the television series Magnum P.I. I like so much about the show; the setting, supporting characters, and Selleck’s portrayal of Thomas Magnum. I especially liked the episodes where Thomas would hear that ‘voice,’ listen, and act accordingly. And the times he didn’t … well, he got into trouble.
You and I have a voice just like Thomas. I contend it has been in us from the beginning while continuing its formation as we ourselves developed, experienced, and learned.
There is however a sadness present. I live in a beautiful part of the country – the Appalachian Mountain Region. On several of the routes we travel, there are signs warning of rock slides and much creative construction is done to prevent a slide from covering a section of road and possibly injuring travelers. Unfortunately there is no department looking after the highway on which our voice travels. Therefore, many a voice has been silenced by the rock slides of 21st Century busyness.
My encouragement is in telling you that your voice is alive and can live vibrantly in your daily life. It may require you to dig through the slides in order to free it. But it’s worth the effort. Your voice will be found among your most core values. Where our voice is most often the one value that most impacts our interactions, our voice is also the central point of individual intuition – our super-intelligence.
Identify your voice.
Give it freedom.
Listen to it daily.
