“What do guides do when you really want something but are unconsciously blocking its manifestation? How would they go about helping you get unstuck, when you aren’t even aware you’re stuck?” – Bri
As we tool along in life, we make choices that lead to consequences. We take actions that we think will take us someplace we want to go.
For example, we want an income, so we get a job. Or we want a loving partner in our lives so we open ourselves to dating.
Sometimes our choices are motivated by fear. “If I don’t get this job I will be homeless in a month.”
Sometimes our choices are motivated by desire. “I’ve always wanted to work in the film industry and now is my chance!”
Sometimes we choose a path based on convenience. “I don’t really want to do data entry, but it’s the only job offer I have right now and I really need the money so I’m taking the job.”
You can get locked onto a path that has nothing to do with what your higher self desired for you, or even what you desire for yourself.
So what do your spirit guides do to get you back on a track they know will serve your highest path and your joy?
They will send reminders to you of your soul’s desires. They will send signs, signals, and synchronicities to help you remember what you’ve forgotten.
Let’s say you’re working as a computer programmer, but your higher self is all about compassion and helping those who can’t help themselves. So you’re driving home and you see a homeless woman begging for money in the hot sun. You pull over and hand her a $5 bill. She thanks you and blesses you and your heart soars. You feel a ping inside you, “I wish I could do more.” But you drive home and go on about your life.
A week later your boss let’s you know that a group of co-workers are going down to the mission to feed the homeless. Ther’s another ping. You eagerly sign up to go and spend half your Sunday feeding people and learning of their plight. You go home wishing you could do more.
You start talking to your friends and your partner about the homeless problem. You begin thinking of what you would do if you had millions of dollars you could use to help them. But you don’t, so you go on about your life.
A few months go by and you attend a fundraiser for a politician. You have the opportunity to talk to him about the homeless problem in your community and you get pretty fired up. You wonder what would happen if you got more involved in city politics or planning. You talk about it with your friends and family.
Two years later you’re running for a position on the city council. You are driven to make your community better. You are driven by a need to change a system you feel is broken and provide shelter, food and job training to the homeless. You win a seat on the council and begin a life of public service. You finally feel you’ve living your life in alignment with who you really are.
That’s one example of how the universe, your intuition, and your guides will push you along on a path they know will bring you joy and fulfillment.
The difficulty occurs when we ignore the yearnings in our heart. Your guides have to do a lot of pushing and nudging when you ignore the signs. They will continue to try to steer you onto a new course; they never give up.
What you want to do is start noticing the yearnings in your soul. What makes you feel fulfillment? What makes you feel good? What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail?
Find a way to dip your toes into the water. Spend your free time dabbling in something you think might be fulfilling for you, then watch it expand further in your life.
Most people quash the feelings inside them. “I can’t leave my job and go do THAT, I’ll starve! I am just going to work my 40 years, retire and THEN I’ll do what I want.”
Listen to the yearnings and start now, in some way, on some level. See what happens.
