Intuition or Influence From Spirit Guides?
Do answers come to you automatically? If you’re like most people, the answer to that question is no. Have you ever found yourself eyes closed, envisioning your situation or silently asking your question and waiting for an idea or answer to come? More than likely, you’ve tried this option. Often we think we’re just talking to ourselves or pretending to get the answer when we do this. But is it really us or is it an outside influence?
Understanding that a Higher Source might choose to communicate with us goes against everything we’re taught. But the only way for our angels, guides or loved ones (who have crossed over) to talk to us or to teach us (without startling us) is to connect with our imagination or to feed the answers into our head. Another possibility is that the message could be coming from our higher self. Here’s one sure way to tell the difference:
If you’re mentally asking a question and you are interrupted with the answer before you can completely ask the question, then the answer is coming from a different source: your angels, guides or loved ones. The higher self always allows us to ask a question in complete form before giving an answer. Your higher self may argue with you about the answer, give you something to contemplate or throw several answers at you at once. Angels, guides and crossed over loved ones work differently. They already know what you are about to ask and simply want to help you as much as possible.
If our angels, guides and loved ones can trust us to react to their answers, they will give us more information. If we do not respond to the answers, they simply wait for another opportunity to connect with us. Our angels, guides and loved ones like to be useful, they like to stay busy, they’re our helpers, doers or busy bees, so put them to work. They don’t want to be useless; they want to have fun and to help you in any way they can as long as it doesn’t interfere with the path of another person or soul, or harm anyone. Don’t be afraid to ask for their help.
In talking with your angels, guides, and loved ones, just ask straightforward and honest questions; they know when you’re messing around and avoiding the real question. You can speak the words out loud, to yourself or you may write them down—it doesn’t matter. They will know what you’re asking of them and will respond in some way to your needs, through a thought, idea, dream, picture in your mind’s eye or they will leave an object in your path as a sign. Keep in mind your angels, guides and loved ones are there to help you fulfill your dreams and obligations. There may be times it will seem as though you don’t get what you want or what you ask for, but you will always get what you need.
