How to recognise a spiritual connection.
Every one, when they first start working with spirit, feels that what they are hearing is just their own thoughts and nothing to do with their intuition or spirit guides. Because we are dealing with a force that can’t always be seen, we almost demand to be shown concrete proof that what we are getting is from spirit. But that will never happen. The information is there to be tapped into, but we have to meet those in spirit half way. We can’t expect them to do all the work.
Living in the physical world we think in physical terms. This makes it very hard to fight our own negativity and doubts. But there is a way to overcome this. Simply, believe in yourself. Recognise that our thoughts are part of a spiritual plan. Most of us don’t have a clue how the brain works, but it doesn’t stop us from using it. Anything that appears to be outside our normal experience, we immediately make it safe by dismissing it as part of our imagination. But what is the imagination? Is it unreal - just a thought process to be dismissed so casually?
Think about it. Without our thought process we couldn’t breathe, eat or drink. It’s the core of our being and the basis of everything we do. Thought can create wonderful works of art, but with every yin, there is a yang. Thought can also cause world wars. So now you see why thoughts must never be dismissed. Thought is a tool to communicate with other thinking energies?
Spirit guides need to use the same thought processes that we will understand, and the gateways for them to use are our imaginations. That’s why it is a good idea to watch lots of documentaries, programs that cram your mind full of information. A spirit guide will pull snippets of information from your mind to communicate with you. But there needs to be information there to use. As trust in the imagination increases, thoughts become tangible. Believing what the imagination tells you is the starting point from fanciful ideas, to actuality. When we merge our imagination and our spiritual perception, there’s no longer any fear of the unknown.
So now I hear you ask, "How do I know the thoughts are from a guide and not my own mind?" Unfortunately there’s no easy answer to this question because everyone works differently. I always tell people when I’m teaching, if thoughts pop into your mind, without any prompting, that’s the first indication that you’re beginning to recognise spiritual influences.
Progression on the spiritual path includes progression on your physical journey as well. In fact, as spiritual awareness increases, you’ll start to change the way you live your physical life. This enables you to then continue along the pathway you’ve decided to tread. I’m not saying it’ll be easy, but then nothing in life is. If it were, you’d never appreciate your achievements. Good luck with your journey, it’s one you will never regret undertaking.
