For a long time now I’ve been wanting to connect with my angels and spirit guides. I see angel numbers almost daily, and I use angel cards at least weekly, but I’d often like to connect more intimately. The post is inspired by a Facebook post I saw back in December. A friend had posted a picture of a pile of books she had read, and the top one caught my eye: Let Your Spirit Guides Speak.
In this book Debra Landwehr Engle helps you develop a relationship with your guides, and part of what she shares comes from her writing guide “Ella.” The very first question she asked was: “Ella, what is spiritual guidance?” The response was so powerful I knew I’d want to frequently revisit it, and I share part of it here with you:
As you know from your own experience, we can tell you whether to turn right or left, where to go next, what to do on your to do list, who to talk to, and what to say. We are intimately involved with those serendipitous events that you attribute to the universe, and the God moments in which there’s a flash of knowledge or peace that passeth understanding. What we want to get across is that truly we are here with you always, and while you may not always feel our presence directly, that doesn’t mean we aren’t here.
If the communication is blocked, it’s never because we have blocked it. It is always fear that stands in the way, and it is healing the fear that opens the lines of communication. As your friend once said, “Now we can really get things done!”
We are eager to work with you as direct partners, and we honor you. You are not lesser than us. You are not lower beings. You are, in fact, courageous souls who are navigating the Earth plane and all the human emotions of fear that can make your experience seem so fretful and challenging and sad. We honor all these experiences and the growth they can bring. And at the same time, we are here to help you have more joy and abundance in you life, more ease, because your life experience does not require struggle or pain.
The more you work with us, the easier your life may become. Not because you won’t still have challenges, but because together we can help you see them in new ways and heal from them faster. We can instill in you a sense of purpose that makes it exciting to wake up in the morning. We can pave the way for our days to be easier and more abundant and filled with joy by helping you make decisions that can life you up and traverse obstacles. We can help you experience your human life as an adventure . . . a chance to explore other worlds, other cultures, without judgement or expectations that can make you miserable or feel cheated.
This is what we are here for with every one of you.
Much love, many blessings. ❤
