Am I receiving spiritual guidance?
How do I know that I am in the presence of spirits?
Are we sure this is not just my ego that I am connecting with?
I hear you. These are all great questions. Let’s see if I can help clear up any confusion or doubts you may have been having. One of the first things I tell my students is that we must learn to trust. Spirit has only our humanistic means to connect with us, which includes your senses, so you must be realistic about your expectations. Trust that when you do receive, it is an act of spirit and not your imagination. Below, look at the following two lists to start recognizing what is coming from you and what is coming from spirit.
I am not connected when:
I feel disconnected.
I feel a sense of urgency.
I am among drama.
It feels forced.
I am discouraged.
I am in doubt.
I am not in alignment.
I am feeling unloved.
I am feeling unappreciated.
I feel unworthy.
I am feeling unsafe.
I am connected when:
I feel loved.
When we are connected to spirit, our guides, or even our higher selves, it will always come from a place of love.
My vibration speeds up.
You will feel a sense of ‘I am in the energy.’ You may feel jittery or tingly. You may feel anxious to listen, process, or even speak up.
I feel at peace.
As long as you are connected, you are in a state of peace. Typically, it will accompany a feeling of being content and accomplished.
I feel a part of it all.
When we are in the presence of spirit, we are loved unconditionally; you will feel a part of it all. You will have a sense of great purpose.
I feel safe and secure.
Often, we are put at ease when spirit steps into our space.
I feel a presence.
You are connected when you no longer feel alone.
I feel inspired.
When you are in the presence of spirit, you feel moved, happy, and enthusiastic.
I receive impressions.
When you receive impressions that seem to come from outside of you, not from yourself, you are connected. Typically, wisdom, guidance, and direction come to you with love, not from a place of ego. We interpret spirit’s communication with us through our spiritual senses. You may smell, hear, see on your inner screen, know, or feel something without conscious reasoning.
