Contacting your guides – Part 1
The following blog is a 8 part series on Spirit Guides, my experiences, and what you might do in order to contact your own.
The heading is flippant, but couldn’t resist.
From time to time, I’m asked how someone can get in contact with their guides. All I can do is pass on my own personal experience.
I’ve always had thoughts in my head. Sometimes they might be my own, of course, but much of the time they feel different, as though they are more rarefied. In both cases, they are a voiceless voice: Thoughts that come to my mind without any logical connection or volition on my part. The energy attached to each one is quite distinct though. The best I can put it is that it’s like listening to different musical notes. Each one sounds quite unique.
I’ve had two main kinds of communications of this sort.
The first is just a general conversation, like you would have with a 3D person. This is a very interesting experience as it’s like carrying a chat partner around with you 24/7. This type of chat tends to be mostly discussing philosophy, teaching me information I need to know or just giving me insights. I used to spend a lot of time arguing with them in the early years, even before I acknowledged them as guides. I don’t do this much anymore.
Every ‘but’ stops you from becoming who you wish to be.
I also find that the conversations come through strongest when I’m walking, or am in certain areas such as a closed off room. Also, I get my strongest messages when having a shower.
The second kinds of communication are short messages.
These are often just a few words long, but will repeat over and over until I understand the message. This can and has taken years in some cases. It also seems that no sooner do I comprehend one message that it gets replaced with another. As an example, one of the most prolific ones I had, which would lasted a good seven or so years were the continual words: “Who are you?” and “You are the phoenix.” (for those who know me, that message will make sense.)
I got these many times an hour, every day until I made sense of it. I must admit, I’m a bit slow as I never noticed the two statements as being connected.
I find the best way to talk to my guides is to ask the question and then let things come naturally. Trying to force an answer will result in no answer or an answer that comes from your own thoughts.
A forced answer tends to be a tainted answer, especially if you have an attachment to the answers. The more you push, the further away it becomes.
I often find that when someone asks me: What do you guides say? I try to get an answer, but I don’t hear them. It’s actually pretty annoying, but the moment I relax, information starts to come through.
In my case, I get those short messages every time my guard is down and when I’m chatting with my guides, I treat them as though I’m chatting with another person. When you have a conversation, you say your piece, but you don’t have to focus on making the other person respond, they either will or they won’t. If they do, it will take no effort on your part.
Many people often dismiss guides as their own imaginings. What they fail to understand is that sometimes your imagination can be used as a means of communication.
Of course, this does not automatically mean that everything you receive is from another entity or if it is, it’s automatically true. In fact, you may find the opposite to be true.
Always run the words and the source past your feelings. If something resonates, then it’s right for you. If it doesn’t, then take a closer look.
