Writing and the Inner Voice

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

“You can build great wisdom and genius by spending time each day in grateful communion with your inner voice. What better way of creating a more fulfilling life than by mastering the art of tuning into your most inspired and ingenious self, your inner voice?

“This voice is your guide of all guides to a life of greatness. You cannot attune to this inspiring voice without living a more inspiring life. Genius, creativity, and a silent power emerge from your heart and mind the moment you do.” – Dr. John F. Demartini (source)

I decided to commit to writing because it opens me up to a wellspring of guidance and creativity. Continue reading


Love and Emptiness: Tools for Transformation

When we connect with our higher consciousness, we connect with a source of infinite wisdom that we can use to give a cosmic perspective on spirituality and world events. We no longer rely on anyone for knowledge about our reality or the realities beyond, and we know we can find all of the knowledge and insight we need within.

Spiritual teachers are people who’ve connected with their higher consciousness, maintained that connection, and maybe even reached a stage of enlightenment. While a lot of spiritual teachers had ‘masters’ and gurus in the beginning, they got where they did with continuous, sincere inner work and we can do the same if we persevere through our own sometimes difficult inner work and find the light at the end of the tunnel.

It can be easy to forget why we’re here or why we’re doing everything we are, and it can especially be easy to give up and turn to things that distract us from our purpose and keep us from helping others. We have to persevere when the stresses pile up and we don’t feel like we can handle it all, because we know on a deeper level that we can.

It’s common knowledge in the conscious community that we’re capable of more than we realize at the surface, and to do anything significant to advance our collective evolution, we have to recognize that we’re infinite and find the inspiration to help the world in ways we enjoy.

Along the way, we’ll inevitably meet difficulties and stresses that we’ll have to persevere through, but we’ll come out of it all with a new inner wellspring of knowledge and experience.

The stresses will be difficult to navigate if we don’t learn to tap in to our intuitive wisdom, and our intuition, along with the higher consciousness we access through it, will help us through any hard times that confront us. Continue reading

I don’t know how this ascension process is affecting all of you, but personally, I’m going through a massive internal transformation. This will probably become more apparent in the work I do and the subjects I explore from here on out, and to put it bluntly, I’m ready to rise up and take charge of this life.

I’m ready to really use my voice, and I’m ready to tap into my higher, intuitive wisdom and my grounded, earthy wisdom at the same time. I’m ready to take charge of this life and become a voice for other people to hopefully benefit from, and my goals now stretch beyond simply wanting to uplift people.

I still want to uplift all of you who’ve dedicatedly read my work over the years, but I’m ready to do more than just that. I’m ready to empower people and encourage them to empower themselves. Continue reading

The Path of Intuitive Communication

Written by Wes Annac, The Culture of Awareness

What I like about The Voice Within is that it doesn’t have to have a specific label or identity. If you look around the new age/channeling community, you’ll see message after message that comes from angels, archangels, extraterrestrials and plenty of other sources, and the number of sources and channelers increases by the day.

I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with this; it just isn’t for me. There are a few channeled sources I enthusiastically follow, but for the most part, I’ve turned my focus on other aspects of our spiritual evolution that I feel are equally worth our attention. Continue reading
