Where Do Inspired Messages Come From?

If you’re new to following an inspired path you may be wondering…

“How do I get inspired messages?”

“Where do they come from?”

“Will I know when I receive a message?”

My response is they can come from anywhere. So just be aware. And trust you’ll know them when they show up.

I always get inspired messages from songs I hear while running.

I think it must be the combination of running—a form of meditation for me—and music. Pretty much every time I’m out running, I’ll hear a song—one I’ve heard a thousand times before—and a lyric suddenly takes on new meaning. It bears a message. And it’s always a message I needed to hear that day.

Today when I finished writing, I was inspired to go for a run. It was a little warm, but I felt the urge to go anyway. And sure enough, toward the end of my run I heard a phrase I needed to hear. It confirmed that I’m on the right path. That some pretty big changes I’m contemplating, that are pretty scary for me, don’t need to scare me. That I shouldn’t worry because Heaven has a plan for me.


I felt reassured.

I thanked the universe for the message. And I came home to write this post!

I also get messages from books, movies, my daily walk in nature with my dogs. They pretty much come at me from every direction. I receive the messages because I’m open and paying attention. Not because I’m looking for them. If you try too hard, as with anything else, you cross over into force.

And living an inspired life is about allowing, not forcing.

While my inspiring ahas may come via my playlist, yours may come in some other way. To hear them just go about your day with an open mind. Pay attention. Listen. Be present. And I promise you, they will show up.

Where do your inspired ideas come from?
