Your spirit guides are very eager to let you know that they are a part of your life and are always trying to send you information to help you on your journey. They want to help you stay on track and fulfill the things you came here to do in this lifetime. It' what they do!
I am approached all the time by folks who know all of this but express that they are feeling a little lost. They've taken the steps to open the door to the spirit world and meet their guides yet they still miss or have a hard time discerning the guidance, wisdom and messages that their guides are sending them.
Been there... done that.
Here are the 6 ways that I use to to better access what my guides are saying to me. They work a charm for me. Give them a try.
1. Take heed: Spirit guides love to visit you in the bathroom
What, Clare... are you off your rocker????
No, I'm not.
Well, maybe a bit. They aren't really visiting you but they are sending you guidance while you are in there.
I receive (and have done so for many years) the best ever spirit guidance when I am in the bathroom. Sudden and amazing flashes of inspiration come out of my shower head. Untold amounts of wisdom flow through the faucet.
I kid you not.
I have joked many times that I should do my readings sitting in my bathtub.
For a long time I discounted what I was receiving and saw it only as my mind just wondering in bathroom boredom. While I was brushing my teeth I was also brushing off spirit guidance. What a waste.
But now that I know... I have downloaded whole chapters of books I have been writing, while in the bathtub! Key or final pieces of important information and best taken daily directions have also fallen into place, while, well, you know. Who knew I was 'sitting' on such wonderful guidance and inspiration.
Once I recognized what was going on I was able to harness the power of that wonderful spirit guide wisdom.
I encourage you to embrace that washroom wisdom.
Now excuse me. I have to go to the bathroom. ;)
2. Dreams: The easy way for your guides to send you guidance
Ok one question: Are you keeping a dream journal? Or at the very least taking a moment to unpack the dreams you remember as soon as you can upon waking?
When my children were small I would quietly slip into their bedrooms when they were (finally...) asleep and lovingly gaze at them while wondering how these sleeping angels could be the same unmanageable little devils that I'd had such a hard time getting to bed.
Our guides do the same thing with us!
Because we can be so thick headed and stubborn about receiving their messages our guides will send us wisdom in dreamtime while we are sleeping. They find that a lot easier than placing eighteen various signs or symbols in our day that we, of course, completely missed.
Whether we know it or not they have our full attention in dreamtime. However, it is up to us to learn to remember what they have sent to us.
Not every dream is a message from your guides. But the ones that are tend to stand out as being rife with symbols to unravel and decode. Write those dreams down. And any other dreams that you remember or feel have some significance. They're from your guides!
The more you do this the easier it gets, the more your remember and the more wisdom you derive. I promise. :)
My husband and I share our dreams with each other frequently over a cuppa tea in the morning. So much wisdom. He'll sense something from one of my dreams that I might not have seen and vice versa. If you have someone to share your guidance dreams with, go ahead. You never know what his or her take on the wisdom might reveal for your journey.
I talk more about decoding dreams in my book here: The Pretty Big Book of Symbols . Handy little reference to have. I use it all the time!
3. Know what your strongest way of receiving their guidance is
If you don't already know what your primary intuitive style is by all means find out. You can do that with my online quiz HERE. Or you can do a manual version of my quiz HERE and do the tallying up on your own.
Your dominant clair is most likely way that you are going to receive the information that your spirit guides send you. When you become aware of your dominant clair you have a clearer starting point for receiving their messages more easily. I'm a strong clairvoyant so I know that I need to look for their guidance. You might be a stronger clairaudient, so you'd hear their messages first most of the time, perhaps in a song playing on the car radio or a particular bird singing in the tree outside your office window for example. Likewise clairsentients would feel the messages and claircognizants would receive them through thoughts or sudden flashes of inspiration.
So, if you don't already know go do the quiz and find out! Then pay extra attention to the things that come to you that way. :)
4. Ask for a sign via your dominant clair then give your guides a time limit to work with
I know this sounds kind of bossy but it's not really. Spirit guides love it when you get into the swing of things and clearly communicate what you need and want from them to them. They actually think it's fun. And they are like "Ok, finally he's into this stuff. We can WORK with this!"
Upon waking in the morning take a couple of deep breaths while thinking about something you would like their guidance with in your life. Ask them to send you a message so you can: see it, feel it, hear it or know it, according to your strongest clair. Ask them to please do this within a certain time frame, like by the end of the day or by Saturday, or whatever works for you. You can even ask them to send it immediately then recognize the first thing that you see, hear, feel or know as the answer you have been sent.
5. Set an intention to get better at recognizing the messages from your guides
Seems quite simple, no? It is. Get YOU involved in the equation. They can only do so much. You've got to be a part of this, too.
Set a simple intention that you will recognize, more and more, the signs, symbols, messages and guidance that your guides send you.
Say this intention just after you have awakened from your sleep. You are then doing it just after sleep / dreamtime (perfect), just before going into the bathroom (perfect-er! - you can also say your intention in the bathroom, too!), at the beginning of the day, which gives you a whole day ahead to put that intention into action.
Doesn't get better than that!
6. Create a special space devoted to receiving your guides messages
Still finding it difficult to get those messages? Then create a special space in which you can do just that.
I have designed a guided meditation to help you set the stage for receiving a message from one of your guides. You can listen to that online HERE.
Try it. It works.
There you go. Now get going and get those messages. Better!
