Don’t worry about figuring out who your Guides are. There are so many Guides and helpers on the other side, trying to figure out who they are is like thinking you may know someone because you know someone with the same last name.
Guides are mentors. They are not interested in being worshiped. Worshiping them or adulating them is a way of keeping them at bay. Because you keep yourself at a lower vantage point. It is never helpful to anyone to put anyone on a pedestal. Think of your Guides as more of best friends that someone to adulate. Keep the respect. Just lose the adoration. They will still be larger than life. But with a tweak in this dynamic, you can expand your consciousness to be present with them. They are always present with you. It is you that has to shift from the human consciousness to be present with them.
Have conversations with them in your mind. If you get information that may be their guidance. Don’t ask a third party for validation. Learning to listen and communicate with your Guides is a form of turning up the volume on your own awareness. It is part of the process of awakening. Asking a third party is a form of giving your power away and is counter to the empowerment needed to connect to your Guides.
Don’t be afraid of what others may think of you. The Ancient ones are immersed in Love. Being even self conscious is a form of fear. Fear is the opposite of Love. When ever you are diminishing yourself with self consciousness, you have to let it go to be more conscious. It is a form of an oxymoron.
Pay attention to subtle cues that are spiritual lessons through your day. Everything that is happening around us is cues to our spiritual lessons. The more we look for the lessons, the more we will see the synchronicity during our day.
When you awake, put out the intention, like an invitation, for your Guides to make their presence known to you. They are ever present. It is you that must hone your awareness to be able to perceive them. Imagine them watching you as you go through your day. This may help dry up any residual negative behavior or language. Just being able to remind yourself of their presence during the day is a discipline. It is stretching the capacity or your awareness.
Be loving and kind at all times. If not merely to be loving and kind, your actions raise your vibrations. Anything you can do to raise your vibrations, also raises your consciousness. Since the Ancient Ones are immersed in Love, the more loving you are, the closer you are to their vibration.
Pay attention to what people say and all the other messages you hear during the day. These are messages from your Guides. If you notice a continuing theme when you talk to different people or have different experiences, take heed. This is your Guides speaking through all life.
Pay attention to unexpected visitors. Animals, nature and strange occurrences are used to get a point across to someone who is still afraid of being approached by their Guides.
Only think and say positive things. It is a quick way of raising your vibratory rate to be at the closer frequency to your Guides. Stop the self derision. If you don’t believe you are worthy, your Guides won’t waste their energy fighting the human resistance.
Mock up walking and talking with your Guides through the day. You can actually feel their protection from negativity the more you do this.
Remember your connection with your imagination, nature, your toys and other childlike musings. Children are naturally able to tap into their awakened self. Perhaps you have had conversations with your Guides when you were very young and merely forgot. Perhaps remembering your childhood and re-entering that innocent state is a short cut to connecting to your Guides.
Set the intention to visit with your Guides during the dream state. The dream censor garbles truth as to not overload the conscious mind. So when you have dreams of someone you respect, it is most likely your Guides taking a form that is positive to you. Pay attention to the positive people that appear in your dreams. The positive traits they display are the special traits of your Guides.
Pay attention to your dreams. These are nuggets of truth for you to discern. Pay attention to your dream symbols during the day. The more attention you put on discerning truth, the more you will train yourself to perceive truth. It is you striving for more connection in a comfortable way that will assist you in connecting with your Guides. It is not a desperate climb up a steep mountain. It is a leisurely hike up a spiraling hill.
Keep what is sacred to you, to yourself. It is really easy for others to burst our bubble of enthusiasm. This is true with all that we hold sacred as well. It may not even be safe to share with a spouse. It is not that they can’t be trusted. It is that you are trying to pull the sublime into a linear world. Take inventory of your reasons to share. Do you want to appear special, need approval, or are you trying to recruit your spouse to your level of awareness? None of these reasons will fly with a Guide. They have been with us longer than one life. The care less about the backdrop of our activities here. To them it is like….a teacher obsessing over the lesson on the chalk board. This life is just a prop for you to hone your spiritual awareness
Listen more, talk less. Every aspect of our day is a teacher. It is up to us to respect the classroom. If we go on autopilot, it is turning down the volume of our awareness. it is our choice not to listen to truth.
Pay attention to your gut and heart feelings. These are energy sensors for perceiving truth as valid as your eyes, and ears are as sensory receptors.
Validate all others as you go. Your Guides not only care about what is precious to you. They are actually teaching you to be a Guide as well. This is how humanity perpetuates truth and understanding. So realize it is not about you. It is about how you can help others. This is a means of preventing the awareness that you glean from becoming a stagnant state. Truth, love, kindness and awareness must keep moving and flowing to stay pure.
