Meeting your spirit guides and angels…be patient and pay attention to detail 😊

When my abilities popped open fully, I had a picture in my head that sensitives were calm, patient and zen all of the time.  Wrong!  I also had a picture in my head that spirit guides followed psychics around all of the time and whispered in the person’s ear whispering to them what they needed to know. Wrong!

Meeting my spirit guides was difficult for me.  I was meditating, writing letters, and focusing most of my energy on trying to get them to step forward and communicate. Yet none were stepping forward. I wanted to know who they were and communicate with them so badly.  I was extremely frustrated and couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong.

What I was doing wrong was trying too hard and not paying attention to signs that they were giving me here in the physical world!  They were giving me little signs that they were there every day. I just wasn’t seeing them.

In my meditations I started seeing an eagle. I could only see the head and it was from the side.  I could only see one eye, but it really stuck out.  It was right up front and prominent.  For the life of me I couldn’t figure out why! Seeing eagles in dreams and meditations can mean several things. One of the meanings is that you need to look closely and pay attention to detail.  Since the eye was the most prominent feature that made sense. I took the cue and started to really watch the world around me. I started to see and hear a few things here and there, but I still hadn’t made contact with my spirit guides. At least not the kind of contact I wanted.

I asked both Paula and Julie what I was doing wrong.  Why couldn’t I make contact? Both had the same answer for me (separate conversations).  Both told me to stop tying to force the communication. They are on their own timeline not yours, and when they feel it’s time they will come to you clearly.  I did get some great advise too!  Paula, in her very matter of fact way of speaking, said “Your spirit guides aren’t just waiting around and doing nothing, BUT if you want then to communicate directly you have to ask them for things so that you know they are there and acting when asked to do so”. She also explained that the responses to your requests may happen right away, or it could take a few days.  That is where attention to detail and patience comes in.  Maybe you ask to see a horse. You may be driving and see a horse in a pasture.  You may see one on television.  You may see one in a dream, or even a photograph or painting. It doesn’t matter how it comes to you.  The point is that you asked, and you received.  It is important to acknowledge your guides when the sign comes.  You can say a simple thank you, or if you want to expand on your thoughts, feel free to do so.

There are many ways to meditate in order to connect with your guides and angels.  Every method I have learned about has to do with starting a meditation and asking your guides and angels to come forward. My wording is:” I ask that my angels and spirit guides come forward to help me with my journey.  I ask any guide who is willing to teach me to step forward for the good of my higher myself and all souls involved.”  I start my mediations by concentrating on my breathing (long, slow breathes). Visualize a beautiful place that makes you feel happy and safe. Let all senses be activated. Feel the sunshine, smell what is around you and if there is something that you would like to touch, do that too. Ask again for any guides willing to teach and guide you to step forward. Next, picture someone walking up to you (not a specific person). Be patient and stay in that moment. If someone does walk up to you thank them for coming and ask their name (if this is a relative or friend that has crossed over, of course, you will already know the name😊). If you cannot hear the name, ask them to say it louder.  If you still can’t hear it ask them to write it for you.  I am clairvoyant so I see, but do not always hear, so asking for the names to be written was the way that worked for me. Thee guide may have something to say or show you right away.  If that is not the case, ask the question “Do you have a gift or guidance for me?” At that moment they may or may not.  I could be that they came forward just to meet you, or you could receive gifts and/or guidance. The message may be clear or not make sense to you at all.  You can ask questions. Remember they will answer in their own way and you may still have to think about it and analyze it later.  Stay in your space until the guide or angel starts to leave/fade.  Thank them for coming and for the help they have given. Now, when you feel ready come out of the meditation.  I always journal my meditations.  I have found that journaling after seeing my guides (in as much detail as I can remember) helps me to understand some things as I write.  I also go back and re-read later. Many times, I am able to understand more of the message and its meaning.

It took me months to meet my guides, and A LOT of patience. As not to force the issue, I asked my guides and angels to come forward a couple of times a week. For a long time, they didn’t come, so I went on with my meditation. I kept asking for my signs every day and paying attention to detail in everyday life. Once they did start coming to me it was magical and insightful!  There were many emotions running through my body after meeting them that it is impossible to capture all of them. They don’t come to me every day in meditation, but they do leave signs. I know they are with me, and I trust that when they have something to pass on to me, or I really need help, that they will be there.

For most of us our guides and angels are not going to stop by for coffee and a chat as soon as we start to open the door to the spirit world.  It really does take a lot of patience, talking (on our end) and attention to detail to see the signs that are being given to us. They will come…when they are ready.

PS My guides didn’t come to me and communicate directly until AFTER the first time I delivered my first message from spirit.

I’d love to have your thoughts and experiences!

Blessings to all!

Protect yourself while you continue to learn about your abilities

Grounding and Meditation are very, very important when you have any kind of sensitivity.  And you may find that you several going on all at once. As important as grounding and meditating is protecting yourself.

I am a psychic medium and an empath. It seems pretty straight forward doesn’t it? I have learned there are many sensitivities/abilities that work together to make up the classifications “psychic medium” and “empath”.

More than likely you, like I, are experiencing one or more if “the clairs”.  In my experience it is “the clairs” that roll up into more broad titles in the psychic world.  See below.

Clairvoyant (clear seeing), Clairsentient (clear feeling), Claircognizant (clear knowing or intuition), Clairalience (clear smelling), Clairaudient (clear hearing), Clairgustance (clear tasting).

Talk about sensory overload!

Now it’s time manage them and protect yourself (while you continue learning). It is important to protect yourself for your own well- being. No matter the ability or abilities you have one of the most important things to learn in the beginning is how to protect yourself! Grounding and meditation play a big part in protection, however, there are other ways to protect yourself.  Ask the universe, your spirit guides, and your angels to allow only positive energy and experiences to enter your energy field. You may not have connected with your spirit guides or angels yet, but they are with you and they do listen.  The key is, you have to ask them for what you need.  It is also very important to thank them and let them know that you are grateful for their help and all of the blessings in your life.

At the beginning of my meditations, as I focus on my breathing, I envision a while light coming downward into the top of my head (where the crown chakra is located).  I visualize the light pouring down over my body forming a bubble around me.  This white light is protection given by the divine universe.  This is not limited to meditation.  I take a moment to envision this white light when I feel that I need to do so.  As an empath this is particularly helpful when I know I am going into a very high energy situation, large crowd or am going to be around someone that I know carries negative energy of any kind.  I even do this before going into a doctor’s office.  Empaths pick up all energy that they encounter. Even energy that is left behind by others.  If I don’t protect myself, I pick up that energy and unknowingly project those emotions onto others. Not protecting yourself can also drain you mentally and physically. That energy stays with me until I cleanse my own energy.  Sometimes I do this by using a sage stick and surrounding my body top to bottom.  I repeat “All negativity and darkness must go, only love, light and peace may enter”. Taking a bath or shower as described in my last post is my other go to since it is my favorite.

Cleansing and protecting your home is also very important. Whether it be spirit or energy that comes into your home with other people it’s important to protect your space by cleansing it on a regular basis.  The easiest way that I have found and is most widely used is smudging.  It’s easy to do and it works.  Get your sage stick and light the end of it using a lighter or clicker (a lighter that is used for lighting candles, BBQ grills etc.). Once lit turn the stick up side down and let the flame envelop the end, then blow it out.  You will probably have to blow on the end of the stick to get the embers within to keep the embers hot and smoking.  Once you have smoke coming off of it you are ready to start. I simply move my arm in a circular motion repeating “No darkness or negativity is allowed in this space.  Only love, light and peace may enter”. I do this through every room in my home.  It’s important that every door and window in the house has been smudged (I go all the way around each door and window).  Once completed put the stick out in a safe container. I use an abalone shell.  You can also put it out by gently rubbing it on the earth. Not only does this cleanse the energy in your home, but it will help to keep negative or dark spirits out.  I do this about every 2 weeks, but if my intuition tells me I need to do it before the 2 week mark then I do it.  Listen to that intuition. 😊

There is so much more to protection (which I will talk about in another post).  The methods listed above will do the trick no matter how many other methods we discuss.

As always, please leave your questions and comments for discussion.

Blessings to all!
