Meeting Your Spirit Guide

I originally posted this elsewhere, but a friend requested that I post it here as well. So, here we go….

Every person has a spirit guide – a friend who helps us along in life, whether or not we realize it. Some people can see their spirit guide, and some cannot, but they are always watching over you, waiting to help.

Sometimes when you’re asleep at night, your own spirit body will travel out on its silver cord to be with your spirit guide. Sometimes you go places together and then dream about them.

Sometimes your spirit guide will whisper to you in your mind. Usually you can hear him or her if you are in some danger and they are warning you to be careful.

From Mountains, Meadows and Moonbeans by Mary Summer Rain

Getting to know your spirit guide more can help you access information about your life that you might not know otherwise. Communication is telepathic, and usually we can become aware of it during meditation, dreams, or just by learning how to focus your thoughts to receive messages. The more you practice, the easier it gets. You are probably doing it already, but not aware of someone’s else’s thoughts versus your own.

The role of your guides is to gently but consistently guide you via intuitive nudges to stay on track with your soul’s purpose. In addition, if something is in your purpose to accomplish, you will find support from your spirit guides in that endeavour. They will hook you up with resources, people, money, books to help you reach your goals. They can offer insight and comfort when you feel lost.

But there is one important condition to the help they can give us and this condition serves us:

Your spirit guides will only help you to accomplish and achieve things that honour the purpose that YOU set for yourself before you incarnated.

Guides will not tell you what to do. They may recommend a course of action that aligns with your path, but they will ultimately leave it up to you. (Source)

To contact your spirit guide, try this exercise:

In a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed, sit comfortably in front of a candle or any spiritual object/symbol that makes you feel safe. You might want to have a pen and paper handy to write down messages you recieve.

As you look at the candle, focus on your breath and on the flame. Imagine a white light surrounding you and protecting you against all negativity. When you feel safe and calm, put out this intention with your mind:

I wish to contact my spirit guide.

You can think it over and over, if it helps you stay focused, or just release the intention out into the ether. Remain focused and wait for your spirit guide to arrive.

When he/she arrives, introduce yourself politely and ask him/her to do the same.

Ask if they have any messages for you and see what they say or what images you see in your mind’s eye, etc.

Thank them for their help and the message.

Allow yourself to come back to the present, and write down anything you want to remember about your guide and the messages you received.

Now that you’ve become aware of your guide, you can acknowledge them and speak to them anytime your mind is calm and receptive. 🙂

Help! I’m Sensitive (eBook Review)

Ronni Ann Hall is a teacher and empath whose blog I’ve been following for quite a while now. I’e also taken one of her fairy classes and greatly enjoyed it. So when she asked me to be on the blog tour for her new ebook Help! I’m Sensitive: 50 Tools for the Sensitive to Help You Survive & Thrive , I jumped at the chance!

Help! I’m Sensitive is a practical guide for dealing with the many overwhelming aspects of being a sensitive person or an empath. Ronni starts her book with a letter to the sensitive in which she states that sensitivity is something we often try to ignore because of how we are perceived by others or because it is too painful. She reminds us that “you were made this way for a bigger purpose,” and that self-acceptance is the first step to finding balance.

Ronni offers solutions to 50 different problems including: spiritual perfectionism, depression, psychic vampires, addiction, empathic overload, headaches, sensitive skin, nightmares and so much more! For instance, her solution to getting too involved in other people’s lives (something I often get caught up in!) is to use “duck energy” or compassionate detachment. She writes, “Let it go. Just swim along in the sea and don’t get lost in others’ floods. They are swimming along too, the best they can.”

Her solution to holding in negativity is to “clear it out gently” via meditation with a rock or crystal. “Ask the rock or crystal to transmute the negative energy you’ve taken on and send the energy into the rock as you hold it.” I adore rocks and crystals, but I so often forget that I can ask them to serve me in this way!

Several of Ronni’s solutions harmonize with messages I’ve been told by my guides over the years — really good advice that I had completely forgotten about. It was beautiful and affirming to read her truth and wisdom, and I greatly appreciated the many solutions I hadn’t thought about before – like making an Everything I Love book to look through on days when I’m having a case of the mean reds. Ronni intends her book to be something you can go back to when you’re upset, like looking up how to deal with a physical ailment, and I can already tell it’s something I’ll be referencing often in the near future.

Find out more about Ronni on her art site or blog. You can read more about and order Help! I’m Sensitive: 50 Tools for the Sensitive to Help You Survive & Thrive by following this link!

Fairy/Child Meditation


Image via Wiki Commons

I’m 23 weeks pregnant, which is very exciting. I’ve been meditation on/with the spirit of this child who will also be a guide to me for years and it will be great to meet him in person. He threw me for a loop by choosing to incarnate as a boy, though his spirit had always appeared to me as a female before. Just one more reminder that who we are in the body does not at all encapsulate who we are in totality.

Anyway, that’s all by way of introducing the lovely meditation I had the other day that I felt led to share:

In the meditation, I grounded myself by visualizing roots tying me to the Earth & being surrounded by white light. Then I visualized myself walking near a stone wall where I took what Ronnie calls “the fairy door.” I found myself in a lush, walled garden full of fairies with large trees, many plants and stone benches and a long stone table. The fairies (in their small, winged forms) called it one of their last strongholds on Earth.

They gathered around me, especially near my belly and blessed me for taking on all the incarnations and karmic weight that led to this most important lifetime and the sacred child I carry. They blessed the child within me, saying that he, like me, will be full of fairy magic, and to make sure he spends lots of time in nature so he would learn to access his power. They told me that he will be my teacher and guide, though I must also teach and guide him. They called him a son of the moon and the sun, a uniter of dualities and a light of truth and wisdom.

Then, taking on more human proportions, they once more laid their hands on me and blessed me. Then we sat down to a large banquet of fruits, cheeses and breads. I noticed there was no meat at the banquet, and asked if I should raise my child as a vegetarian. They responded that he will know his own path & that all I have to do is support and guide him when he feels lost.

After dining, we danced together as the sun set in the sky and the stars shone brightly above us. Then they told me I was to go back home & I came back to where I had grounded myself in front of my altar, feeling very peaceful and blessed.

Love Is My Guiding Force

"Wonder" by Alex Grey

“All lovingly unfolds through time and space

Life constantly transforms, but in essence nothing changes

There is nothing to fear, there is only love

I am one with the Universe and stars

Love is my guiding force.”

– Toni Carmine Salerno
