Part 15. Your Word

By Pam Garcy

Your Word: Keep your appointments, commitments and promises

Just a little secret you might like to know. Your outward behavior affects your ability to access your inner wisdom. This may seem a bit surprising and even odd.

Let me explain a little more. When you make an appointment, commitment or promise, it is best if you will do what it takes to keep the appointment as often as you can. This applies to the appointments, commitments and promises that you make to others--and those you make to yourself (for example, if you tell yourself you will take a walk after dinner, do what you can to keep that promise).

Why? Because when you keep your appointments, commitments and promises, you show yourself that your promises mean something. Like the old expression, "Say what you mean, mean what you say."

This is the basis of integrity.

Integrity helps to activate your inner guidance! When you operate in a position of integrity, you can trust yourself more fully, and this allows information to flow to you more easily and readily.
When you fail to operate in a position of integrity, you lose trust in yourself and this blocks your ability to turn inward for answers. You will get the interference of inner chaos instead.
So, if you're not sure if you can keep your word, what can you do? One option is to refrain from making the appointment until you know that you will do all you can to honor it.

What if you find out that you cannot keep your word? Let the other person know what is going on and then do the best you can to make it up to the person in some other way.

Remember this: Integrity in living creates congruence, and congruence opens you to your inner guidance.

If you've been operating without integrity, see what making this change does for your life. You might be very surprised at the results. Just to be straight with you, though, this is a long-term behavior, not a short-term one. So, if you think everything will change in one day, think again. However, if you give it the time it deserves, you'll reap great rewards.

Let me know how it goes!
