On Guides

Guides are beings that help us with our life’s journey. Much like the idea of a guardian angel. Some stick with us for life, other specialists can come and go, depending on what is happening in our lives. When I say guides, the word is also a hint at what their role is in our lives. They can’t and won’t make us do anything. That is not their purpose. They are our helpers on the other side, assisting us in what we want to accomplish. If we go off track, they cajole, they hint, they advise, they knock us over the head with a 2×4 in order to get our attention. They help us learn a lesson that keeps repeating in our life. They can come in with specialized information depending on what’s going on. Are you building a home? Getting a divorce? Preparing for your first child? Speaking in front of a large crowd for the first time? Starting your own business? Dealing with your in-laws? Guides with such experience or information will come and go throughout our lives as we need them.

Sending love

What does it mean to send love? It’s an energy thing. Since I believe everything is energy, you can bet your bottom dollar I feel love as a vibration, an energetic force. A force for good, not evil. (You know I had to say that!)

First you have to understand love (or any emotion) vibrationally. In terms of what I will call the emotional vibrational scale, Love is at the top, and it’s opposite, fear is at the bottom. All actions, all emotions, all feelings, are either love-based or fear-based. Gossip, complaining, prejudice and jealousy are all fear based. Compassion, giddy feelings, joy, happiness, and appreciation are all Love-based.  Continue reading

Divine Right Timing

Or thought of another way, you can’t do anything wrong. I learned this saying, this idea, when I was at an evening talk in Albuquerque some years back. It stuck with me and rang true. The idea is, there is no such thing as a coincidence. It’s meant to be. Everything happens at the right time, even if it seems to you that things are going wrong, or you are running late. I’ve heard this many times, and through experience I have come to trust and believe in it.

Remember this especially when you feel you made mistakes, or are running late, or even can’t make a date you said you could. All things from Spirit come with Divine Right Timing. Always. This is a sort of get out of jail free card in terms of worry. Stop worrying if your late arrival somewhere, or you lack of being able to do such and such is a terrible tragedy or is in some way wrong. It isn’t. Stop worrying. Spirit has your back. You did nothing wrong.

If you still feel bad about being late, or missing a connection of some sort, or not achieving a personal goal by a certain age, time, etc. realize that there is a divine plan, and you are part of it. You just can’t see the whole picture. If you are worried about something not happening at the right time, or are not sure what to ask for, always add the phrase, …with divine right timing. Then let go and be patient.

 

Am I doing it right?

You may have heard the phrase, you are exactly where you should be. Usually people who are wondering, Am I doing it right? or Did I make the right decision? find themselves being given this advice. I’m a thinker. I think too much and am in my head too much. I used to worry about whether or not I was doing things right, from a soul perspective. Did I take the right path, learn the right thing? Now that I trust in my own intuition and I trust that things are unfolding as they should, I realize many of the events that I lived through were wonderful for looking back on to gain a different view point.

My understanding is, you are exactly where you should be at any given moment in life. This considers your past experiences, what you have learned along the way, your current level of knowledge and experience about life and how it all works. No one is perfect! The phrase you are exactly where you should be is a get out of jail free card in terms of worry, and feeling guilty about not being perfect or not doing the right thing. If you feel you screwed up, or could have handled something differently, don’t sweat it. Don’t obsess over those details. You did your best.

You can’t do anything wrong, because each experience, every encounter in life is an opportunity to grow and learn. Much the same way that for scientists there is no such thing as a failed experiment, because at a minimum, knowledge was gained from what did not work. A burnt batch of chocolate chip cookies tell you the oven was too hot, and yet, you might still be able to enjoy a few of those cookies!  Don’t take life so seriously.
