Unleashing Your Inner Wisdom: A Beginner's Guide to Spiritual Guidance
Have you ever felt lost and unsure of where to turn for guidance? You're not alone. Many people find themselves seeking answers outside of themselves, whether it be from friends, family, or even the internet. But what if the answers you seek are within you all along? Spiritual guidance can be a powerful tool to help you connect with your inner wisdom and find the direction you need in life.
However, the terminology and concept of "spirit guides" may seem unfamiliar or uncomfortable to some. The good news is that you don't need to hold any specific belief to benefit from spiritual guidance. You can choose whichever terminology resonates with you, such as God, spirit guide, higher self, or universal guidance. In this blog, we'll explore different ways to connect with your spirit guides and the various forms in which spiritual guidance can manifest.
Spiritual guidance can help you eliminate and transform fear-based thoughts. In the past, I felt like I needed to force things in order to solve problems. However, I found that if I take a step back and ask for guidance, sometimes the fixing doesn't need to come from me. The universe does it for me. It reserves so much energy and time.
In the past, I have struggled with infertility. I was so afraid I wouldn’t have any more children. Since embarking on my spiritual journey, I haven’t had any more children, but I know that it’s ok.
Through connecting with guidance, I have developed a profound sense of trust in the universe and know that everything in my life has happened for my benefit.
While I have not had any more children, I can still fulfill my nurturing desires in other ways.
When you’re faced with a tricky decision, do you often find yourself asking others for advice? It can be helpful to hear different perspectives, but people often answer based on what they would do if they were in your shoes. But the truth is, only YOU know what is best for you.
There are various forms in which spiritual guidance can manifest, such as visions, sensations, thoughts, dreams, gut feelings, a deep sense of knowing, or signs. Signs can mean many things, like seeing repetitive numbers or patterns, seeing a certain object or animal that reminds you of a loved one that passed on, or synchronistic events.
A primary sign for me is feathers. A few years ago, I moved out of my house. It was the final day of cleaning and sweeping out my garage was the last thing to do before leaving my house forever. As I was sweeping, I noticed feather after feather after feather! There were feathers everywhere in my front yard; on the lawn and in the driveway as well. This was a sign to me that everything is going exactly as it was supposed to!
Here are a few suggested steps for you to connect with your spirit guides. Keep in mind that what works for me may not work for you. Experiment and find what feels best for you.
Aligning your thoughts and needs with the universe
In order to attract what you want, it’s important that you are feeling good. Choose thoughts that are coming from a place of love.
This is especially important if you’re having difficulties connecting. Gather anything that helps you feel calm and connected to yourself. This could be sage, incense, crystals, or essential oils… for example. Go to a quiet place to meditate. If possible, go outside and put your bare feet on the grass so you can energetically connect with the Earth. This isn’t an essential step but it is very helpful, especially if you’re feeling any sort of block.
Calling in guidance
Be specific with your guidance, not only with what you’re calling in but from whom. You could call in your higher self, a guardian angel, people who have passed on, archangels, or specific energy, for example. Personally, I like to put boundaries around my guidance.
If I’m in a place of fear, I will say “Thank you guides of the highest love, truth and compassion, for leading my thoughts back to love”. After making a request, see if any spiritual guidance comes through. One thing to keep in mind, however, is not to try and force it. If spiritual guidance doesn’t come through right away, maybe it will come to you later in a sign, vision, or sense of knowing.
In summary, spiritual guidance can be a very powerful tool to help you connect with your inner wisdom. By eliminating and transforming fear-based thoughts, you can develop a deep sense of trust in the universe. Remember that spiritual guidance can manifest differently for everyone, and it's important to experiment and find what works best for you. By aligning your thoughts and desires with the universe, grounding yourself, and calling in guidance, you can access your inner wisdom and find the direction you desire in life.
