Spiritual guides, that is – “they’re always with you even if it’s been years since you connected with them directly.” These last words were part of a conversation I had with someone at a recent gathering who had been surprised at my statements the day before about my own guides coming to connect with me just before I dropped off to sleep. Of course, there are no coincidences and my revelation about my own guides was meant, I’m sure, to nudge her just a bit in reminding her of her own experiences when she was younger. You know how it is – it’s your world and everything in it seems perfectly normal and natural to you until someone expresses surprise at those very things in your life that you think are known to everyone else – except they’re not always known.
This lovely individual seemed surprised that I would reveal so freely what is normal in my world – my spiritual team accessing me often and me them often and for issues both large and small. This being open part I do know is changing as I’m becoming more comfortable with sharing my authentic self along with beliefs and experiences of an energetic and spiritual nature to while not exactly strangers groups with which I feel comfortable. The environment we were in – a goddess retreat – perhaps made me bolder and perhaps also made for some assumptions on my part about the reception these statements would receive. After all, doesn’t everyone who goes to a goddess retreat know and interact with their spiritual team? Not to worry – she had some great questions and then the next day came up to me and whispered “I’ve got to talk with you later!”
So we did talk later – at lunch in the communal dining room. She shared that the night before that when she’d had difficulty getting to sleep she asked for her guides – the ones she remembered from childhood – to come get her and take her to a place of rest and relaxation – aka, sleep. Four hours later she awoke refreshed and excited from her experience and couldn’t wait to share with me. The entities she connected with were just as she found them to be as a little girl – very tall with long hair and lots of smiles for her. She seemed amazed that her simple request of “come be with me” was answered clearly and for an extended period by her guides. I could tell that she was excited to reconnect with them which brings me back to the beginning of this article – “they’re always with you.”
At times in my life when I’ve felt certain that my guides have abandoned me or when I no longer feel their reassuring presence by my side and I make inquiry about this the answer is always the same: “we didn’t move, Lizanne – you did” – true enough. For those are the times when my self-confidence took an ego hit or when the winds of change blowing through my life just like they do in everyone else’s life become more tornado-like in intensity. The times when I lose track of my spiritual beingness nestled inside of this human experience and the result is the human part becomes more real than the spiritual part – which for me is an imbalanced state of affairs. And these times are always accompanied by feelings of angst, worry and lack of clarity which I’ve learned to surf knowing that sooner or later I’ll return to my resting place right alongside my spiritual team which is always where I’m at my best – loved, supported and encouraged by entities who’ve known me longer than just this life.
