How do I go about receiving spiritual guidance? How do I know if it is real or am I just making it up?
To put it simply, the best way to receive spiritual guidance is to ask for it. Like a prayer that requests something, we can request guidance from Holy Spirit. Your request is always heard.
There are different ways we receive guidance:
- a simple knowing
- images – seeing with the inner eye
- feelings and sensations
- hearing with the inner ear
- signs such as hearing discussion on the radio that is talking precisely about requested guidance
- seeing certain numbers over and over on license plates, addresses, etc.
- synchronicity, for example hearing a rarely played song on the radio that has a special meaning to you
- an overhead conversation
- a note from a friend
- a remark by a stranger
How can we distinguish between real guidance and fear-based ego talk? These are clear indicators of spiritual guidance – it is:
- never telling you to harm yourself or another
- a voice for love not fear
- clear and direct
- in a different tone than your own thinking
How to receive spiritual guidance:
- ask Spirit for guidance
- always ask that it be for your highest good
- be open to receive guidance
- notice what comes up
Fortunately, in times of stress or crisis we are often more receptive than ever to guidance!
Remember, you are simply Divine,
