Anna Mae of the Philippines says:
I always wanted to be in contact with my spirit guides. At times I meditate, but I don’t know if I’ve encountered one already.
I’m always sensitive to things around me. One night, before I went to sleep, I meditated. Then I was awakened by my baby around midnight. While we were playing, I heard a beautiful sound of something like a church bell. The following night I heard it again. Then, at dawn the following day, I was awakened because someone was calling my name two times.
Would all these series of encounters mean something from the spiritual realm? Please help me, I’m desperate about this.
Dear Anna Mae,
You are naturally very mystical, and through many past lives have developed the ability to be a very powerful psychic and channel.
My sense of your abilities is that you are meant to express your spiritual and psychic gifts through your religion, through prayer, healings and mystical insights. Are you by any chance Catholic? And are you familiar with the mystic St. Teresa of Avila? Her energy hovers around you very strongly, so she’s either a spirit guide, or was an important influence in a past life.
Whether your chosen religion seems to be open to mysticism or not, my sense is that, truly, nothing can keep you from this part of your life path. You’ve invested in a long soul evolution to reach this point, and it’s inevitable that you will express your gifts in some important way, and may already be doing so. Your guides and angels help assure that this happens. Whether you will become famous, I don’t know, but you will have a healing and transforming influence on many, many lives, perhaps through simple every day contact, or perhaps in a more formal setting.
What’s the best way to be sure an experience is, truly, spiritual? It’s actually pretty simple. Just ask yourself, “How did it make me feel?” If, at the moment of the experience, you felt uplifted, expanded, awestruck, renewed, hopeful, blessed … then it was a mystical, spiritual, positive experience, one which will lead you to your highest good.
If you felt depressed, or closed in, or fearful during the experience, then it wasn’t. It’s natural, especially when you’re first opening up spiritually, to feel a bit of fear and doubt afterward. But if you have no doubts while it’s happening… then have no doubts!
Since you provided astrological information with your question, I was able to see that you also have one key to happiness and success which may surprise you. In addition to your mystical gifts, you have been granted the ability to be organized, practical and shrewd. Since these are probably new abilities for you, it may take a while to perfect them, but they’re an important part of your life path, so be sure to value and develop those practical gifts as well as the mystical ones.
