A Loving Inner Presence

Excerpted from a book in progress

It is my belief that each of us has a body, a mind and a soul. The body you can see, the mind you can hear, but the soul is much harder to perceive. It is not tangible and it is not describable, but most of us sense that we have something inside of us that goes way beyond our thinking mind. For me it's that little spark of Sheri that has always been inside me, looking out at the world through my eyes. I can sense its timeless nature because after nearly sixty years of changes, this inner part of me feels the same.

You already have this inner presence inside of you, so I have nothing to give you that you don't already possess. Some call it the soul and others call it the spirit. I call it your Inner Ally because it always has your best interests at heart.  

You may not be aware of it but this Inner Ally has been with you since your birth, and will remain with you until you die. It has witnessed everything that has happened to you throughout your life and it has always tried to nudge you in the direction of health, abundance and joy.  

This book will introduce you to your Inner Ally and help you to cultivate a loving relationship with it. In time it will become second nature for you to turn to this unfailing source of advice, resilience and comfort.

Your relationship with your Inner Ally is a built-in kinship, like a natural team effort. You probably have always taken it for granted. Think back to a time when you were little and got into a tricky situation. It was your Inner Ally that said, "What do we do now?" Throughout your life, whenever you found yourself in the middle of circumstances in which you were confused or scared, it was your Inner Ally that would survey the situation and say, "how do we get out of this?"

Your Inner Ally is warm, friendly and unconditionally loving. It cares for you above all others. It truly wants nothing more than to assist you, love you and support you. It will always be on your side, strengthening you with words of love and support, helping you to maintain the kind of positive attitude that makes life more hopeful and rewarding, reminding you of the kind of constructive beliefs that propel you forward in positive directions.
