What Is Spiritual Guidance?

What is spiritual guidance? How can I find my own source of inner wisdom? How do I know when my intuitions are true? When do I trust the spiritual guidance of other people? These are the kinds of questions that emerge when we begin to seek to develop our intuition and soul knowledge.

Inner wisdom is an inborn and natural gift, given to us by God in order to facilitate the connection between our soul and our embodied self. Often our intuition is operating in our lives on a daily basis, without our even knowing it!

The practice of regular prayer or meditation can help us to re-connect with our own inner source of spiritual wisdom. Additionally, it can be helpful to access the wisdom of spiritual teachers or spiritual guides who can help us to re-connect with our own inner source of spiritual wisdom.

This is not always as simple a process as it may seem, for spiritual guidance can be distorted by inner blockages or pain that we carry. It takes a while to develop the capacity for discernment.

How to Recognize Spiritual Guidance

One of my spiritual mentors used to say that inner wisdom and intuition speaks quietly, with the voice of Love and warmth, and will repeat itself as often as necessary. Inner guidance often comes with a feeling of "rightness" and a feeling of love, warmth, comfort and even joy.

We all contain within us a spark of God's light and love in our hearts, that is able to perceive divine love and truth. In today's secular world, many times this part of us gets covered over by social conditioning.

How to Develop Discernment with Spiritual Guidance

When you are reading or listening to spiritual wisdom offered by a channel, spiritual guide or teacher, always, notice how it feels to you. How do you feel in your body and your emotions? The presence of God's love and Light has a certain vibration that can be felt.

Guidance that encourages you to harm others, or yourself, or that encourages you to focus hatred or negativity towards other people is a distortion and is not clear spiritual wisdom, because is it not aligned with God's love.

Blessings of the Light Spiritual Guidance

The Blessings of the Light spiritual guidance I share here is offered for inspiration, spiritual healing and transformation. This sharing is intended to help you to open your own source of inner wisdom. You can learn more about the process of how I receive the messages here.

The language and concepts that are used to share inner guidance may be unfamiliar to you, or may differ from your own experiences or spiritual beliefs. That's OK, the important thing is to receive what information or energy is helpful for you, and to let go of what is not helpful.

I do my utmost to offer clear spiritual guidance that is free from the baggage of my own personality level of self. My training has been the many years of facilitating healing sessions with people, attuning to spiritual guidance and accessing information that my own human self would have no way of knowing. This work of sharing spiritual guidance is a part of my purpose and mission.

This and the ongoing process of purification has allowed the Blessings of the Light messages to come forth with some relative degree of clarity, though not with perfection, as I am still very much in process.

How To Connect With Your Spiritual Guidance

It is very important that you never accept blindly what I share or what any minister, priest, rabbi, spiritual healer, channel or any other spiritual guide says.

Always receive spiritual guidance through your own inner "truth meter". Your heart knows what truth is, what love is, and what light is. Ask yourself what about this feels true? What do I resonate with? What does not feel true for me?

We are taught from an early age to override our natural inner wisdom, so if you have difficulty connecting with your own inner truth, make a commitment to sit quietly for 15 minutes in meditation each day.

You can use any meditation technique that works for you, or you can simply sit quietly placing your hand on your heart, and focus attention on your breath and on being in the present moment.

Whenever the mind strays, or wanders into obsessive thinking, simply notice this, and bring your attention back to your breath, and to the present moment. Free yourself from judgment, as the mind tends to be very active and you will find yourself bringing yourself back to your breath many, many times.

A meditation practice like this can truly transform your life and your consciousness. It is simple and profound, and will reconnect you with your own inner source of wisdom.

The Purpose of Sharing Spiritual Guidance

The goal of any form of true spiritual guidance that comes from another to you, is to help you reconnect with God and with your own Spirit. This is the purpose for which we offer the Blessings of the Light messages.

Articles Related to Spiritual Guidance

As we open our hearts, grow closer to God, and release ourselves from old patterns of fear and defensiveness, our inborn spiritual wisdom begins to open naturally. These are some articles related to this process of spiritual transformation that opens inner wisdom and guidance.

  • The Way of Inner Guidance - K nowing What is True
    In accessing inner guidance, it is important to know how to listen without fear, and how to trust what one is hearing, sensing, or feeling. This allows the gentle message of the soul to plant itself in the heart, creating a sense of "rightness" which becomes the basis for acting.

  • Soul Purpose and Intuitions of the Future
    It sometimes happens that one must wait many years for a soul-aspect or aspect of soul purpose to reveal itself. This often occurs when world conditions must arrange themselves in a particular way so that one is called into service only at that time.

  • Listening Within: The Awakening of Intuition
    We live at a time when the capacity to hear God's voice speaking within heart and mind has become greater, due to the intensification of light within the physical plane. As a result, even for those who have wandered far away from a spiritual path, the way back is more possible than ever before given a wish to return, and given time and attention paid to the voice of an inner knowing that may have previously been rejected.

  • Becoming Light: The Sacred Practice of Alignment
    # 'Alignment' is a practice which allows us to participate in the greater life of the spiritual universe by reaching toward the higher dimensions of light and by bringing light through from these dimensions into the physical reality in which we live. As we do this, we become more able to commune with God's love, light, and truth, and more able to experience ourselves in the larger context of the soul that we are.

  • Developing Your Inner Spiritual Guidance
    As the world becomes more connected through the technologies of communication, it is also becoming easier to become disconnected from our own selves. The necessary quiet time that develops our natural connection with intuition and spiritual guidance is no longer easily found. Living with an awakened inner guidance offers us the opportunity to experience a new creative dimension of life, and develops the precious gift of discernment, allowing us to see clearly what is true and what is not.

  • The Path of the Heart
    The path of the heart is the path of life itself, and all souls are on it whether they are conscious of this or not. If we are open to life's teachings, we will travel this path without difficulty and without confusion, for it will lead us from love to greater love both in terms of our understanding and in terms of our experience.

  • The Valuing of Simplicity
    Our lives are too busy because we value busyness. If we valued simplicity, our lives would become simple. This may not be apparent on a conscious level, but on an unconscious level our lives follow the Law of Attraction, they manifest what we think and what we desire or feel we need.

  • Channeling Intuitive Guidance
    Channeling intuitive guidance has become popular since the late 1980's when a movement of awakening propelled many spiritual seekers to open their inner wisdom to connect with the spiritual realms. Since that time, there has been much learning about channeling. Through trial and error, many spiritual seekers have come to understand the importance of using discernment, both in the process of opening yourself up as a channel to receiving spiritual guidance, and also in the process of listening to spiritual guidance channeled from others.
