Messages given by spirit ring true to heart and mind, resonate deep within the human heart. Spirit speaks in symbol and metaphor. Spirit communicates with you when you ask for guidance. Spirit reveals how all beings depend on each other.
Spirit heals, it does not judge or curse. Spirit reveals oneness and belonging, not division and separation.
Spirit selects no enemies, no villains, no fall guys, deems no one less worthy than another.
Spirit knows and sees the wholeness of all that is. Each living being is accounted for in the web of life, each blade of grass. Spirit does not focus on flaws or faults or rain punishment upon those deemed unworthy by human decree and practice.
Spirit reweaves the tapestry of life when it becomes worn, torn or ripped by those who separate themselves from the fundamental truth of all existence, We are All One
Your power animal (or spirit animal) may take the form of insect, mammal, reptile, fish, sea creature, amphibian, bird, arachnid. Even extinct or legendary animals may come to you in spirit form.
They may be tiny, shy, sleek, flashy, magnificent, meek, camouflaged, strong and powerful, a hunter, a grazing animal, a nest builder, or burrower, a deep sea diver…
To meet your spirit animal, close your eyes and let them come to you. They may not be who you expect! They will choose you, for spirits know what powers you require in your life, what messages what healing energies for your growth and wholeness. They are attuned to you and your spiritual mental, physical and emotional needs.
Be open to whatever creature comes to you. Set aside your logical mind and allow yourself to be curious, without judgment. All creatures have powers and wisdom to share!
Power animals, also called spirit animals or totems have access to spiritual information that humans do not. Human vision and knowledge are limited and Earthbound.
Your spirit animal can help expand your awareness and bring hidden knowledge and wisdom to your life. Ask your power animal how they will work with you, what you can do for them, how to honor and thank them for their service to you.
When you meet your spirit helper in animal form, use your senses to get to know them. Imagine feeling the texture of their coat, their scales or feathers… imagine smelling their scent, hearing their voice. Picture them running, flying, sliding, gliding, crawling, swimming. Imagine the feel of their body heat, or the dry coolness of the skin or scales, the delicacy and fragility of their tiny wings, the sharp claws, the wet nose, the soft fur…
Get to know them. Create a relationship with them by meeting often. You can do this by learning to do shamanic journeys, by writing and asking them questions, by going out in nature, leaning against a tree and tuning in to the wavelength of spirit and asking for their presence.
You must call them in each time you wish to visit and have a question or intention for your meeting. Pay attention to the messages you receive.
Build up your trust in them by meeting often. When you know them well, your power animal will be with you during times of trial, they will be with you when you are sick, they will be with you when you sleep, when you travel.
Your part is to ask for their presence, ask for their advice, ask for their protection…ask for what you need from them. Then use your senses, including your sense of intuition to discern the messages they bring.
A power animal will expand your awareness of what is possible in your life.
Does the prospect of change, even a small shift toward the light feel challenging, as though you must move a boulder off your chest, a ton of bricks from your back, extricate yourself from quicksand that is sucking you under?
You can ask for spiritual assistance, guidance, and help with problems and challenges in your life that seem insurmountable. When you ask from a place of self honesty, surrender and trust, you will receive answers and assistance.
The answers and assistance from spirit may come in many forms. You may see a sign in nature, such as an amazing spider web, a colorful bird in flight, a full moon surrounded by colored light… You may receive spiritual wisdom and assistance through your senses, sight, sound, touch, taste, smell as well as simply knowing the truth in your heart and mind.
Your challenge is to discern the true and helpful spirit given messages from other random thoughts or ideas in your head.
Loving spirits will never ask you to harm another living being or the environment or send hateful messages or energy to another. Loving spirits will never ask you to harm yourself, put yourself at risk, or keep yourself small.
True spirit messages will give you a feeling of energy and possibilities and purpose. Spirit messages will resonate with your wise self and in your heart.
When you carry out loving spiritual advice your actions will enhance and reweave the web of your life and all life with energetic threads of love and renewal.
We loving compassionate spirits are all around, supporting you, waiting for your awareness and awakening to our presence and our support for you.
Please ask for our help, receive our communication in whatever form it comes to you, then do your best to carry out the loving and compassionate advice you receive.
Trust what you receive from the compassionate spirits, and more will be given to you.
Does the energy of your mind and body always agree with that of your heart and spirit?
When you have planned and made your to-do list with your logical mind, fit all your tasks into the appropriate time slots on your calendar do you find yourself ignoring procrastinating, fuzzy headed, trying to distract yourself with the phone, the computer, food?
Do you avoid your carefully listed jobs? Then do you try to push through the resistance to get them done with no joy or sense of fun?
Ask yourself instead, “What does my spirit want? What do my spirit and heart ask of me today?”
Your list of spirit inspired things to do may look a lot different than the logical brain list. When your actions are tied to the needs of your spirit, you will feel energized and inspired instead of tired, deadened, dull and grudging.
When you listen to your spirit and do those spirit and heart guided activities first, the other less inspiring but necessary tasks of daily living will fall more easily into place.
Feed and nurture your spirit. Listen to its wisdom, its plan for your life. Do the big things that your heart longs to accomplish first.
Give yourself this precious gift, the gift of time and attention and focus on the reasons you came to this Earth in a body!
Do you allow yourself to make the kind gesture, let yourself reach out to others when that is your first impulse?
Do you stop yourself from creating new friendships, visiting family members, having friends over when deep down you know you would thrive on the connection?
Some day, dear ones, your friend may move many hundreds of miles away, your family member may fall ill, your loved one may die. Your life in thisbody is limited and finite so you must make the most of each moment.
(Please remember – the life of your spirit is infinite and unlimited!)
Do you feel you are not worthy of love, connection, or deep abiding friendships with amazing people? This dear one, is a distortion in your thinking. Begin compassionately and lovingly to create new habits of thought that support your highest good!
Trust your spirit to know who to spend time with. Trust the whisperings within you that move you toward connection and wholeness and expansion.
Allow yourself to participate fully in the great web of life that connects all living things with the resilient and powerful threads of love.
Your spirit may seem invisible to you, like the quiet operating system behind the more colorful and dramatic scenes of your physical life.
Seek and find your spirit is under all the clutter of your mind, waiting patiently for your full attention. Know that your spirit is who you really are at your core, who you have always been.
Can you tap into the timeless wisdom at your center that lies beneath all the worry, doubt and fear?
Can you swim in the ocean of light that is your true home? It lies beneath the clouds of heavy energy and stuck feelings that have built up in your energy fields over the years.
You can do this. Even in the eye of the storm in your life you can take time for yourself, breathe deeply and visit that peaceful place at your center that knows no fear, that is wise and loving, that place that is timeless, your true home.
Here you will renew and energize
yourself and reweave your scattered energy to bring you back home to
yourself once again.
When it is dark, do you remember that you yourself are a source of light?
When you feel powerless, do you remember that your power lies within?
When you feel alone, do you remember that you are one with all of life?
When you are aligned with source, your light can bring you peace, show you the best way forward, help you define your life’s purpose, show you what is most important for you to focus on during your sojourn here with your precious limited time.
Knowing that you are a source of light will help you let go of the fluff, the trivia in your life and do what you came here to do.
When you call back and tap into your inner power, you will begin to move through fears that limit and stifle you. Your power will help you move forward in life with clarity, take action in the physical world that will bless you and others
Knowing your oneness and connection with all of life means you have constant guidance and spirit at your side. You will know your integral part in the web of life and that you belong here, you are needed wanted, and desired here!
You will no longer question your existence or if you have a right to take up space, breathe the air and use the water. You know will know in your heart that you’re not alone.
Bless yourself by tapping into your light, power and oneness and you bless yourself and all the earth.
Can you trust in the never ending stream of guidance and loving support that comes from spirit? It is like a well or spring that will never run dry. It is constantly refreshed and renewed as your life circumstances change.
Perhaps you have not personally felt or experienced this flow of guidance in your life. It is there, beneath the surface of your thoughts. It takes a bit of tuning in to begin and live by your guidance.
Let your spirit out to play!
It is the knowing that seems to be there inside that always is on target. It comes from within you in many disguises. Do not seek this power outside of yourself, in gurus, objects of value, money, looks, fame… the impulse, impetus and inspiration from spirit comes through you! And – it feels good!
Little by little learn to discern the voice of spirit from the voice of your logical ego brain that tries to keep you separate from others, that attempts to herd you into a corral, or box of “proper” or conventional and limited ways of being and responding and thinking. The voice of Spirit will never promote chronic fear in your life.
Maybe you seem drawn to a particular book or website that has exactly the information you need, information you can trust, that touches your heart and rings true. Trust it! Perhaps you see a beautiful bird, or animal that lifts your spirit and gives you hope. Trust it! Perhaps you feel within you a certain knowing of the course of action that you are to take. Trust it!
Even if you can’t explain exactly why, trust it! If you unsure, trust, and test the waters, trust, test the waters… see if your guidance carries you through. Let go of judgment and worry. The more you trust and act on your true guidance that comes from spirit, the more will be given to you!
When you send your ego to the baby sitter and let spirit come out to play, life can expand into joy!
Many of you are sensitive to the spirits and energy that support, surround and permeate this world of mass, volume and matter. You have a wider spectrum of awareness than those who call you crazy, those who fear your power, those who cut you down to size, those who scoff at your light.
Do not allow others to talk you out of what you know to be true!
You who can feel and hear and know the presence of spirits; do you sometimes feel overwhelmed by it all? Learn to set boundaries, to invite the compassionate helping spirits on your terms, on your schedule, and send those who drain you away.
Your voice is powerful!Use it to keep yourself clear and to connect with your inner strength and power.
Your roots connect you to the Earth. Draw up her energy to empower your body. You sensitive ones, especially will be most effective when you are grounded in the earth as well as connected to the heavens.
Focus your attention and set your intention to work in harmony with the spirit world.
You sensitive souls are needed here with your wider range of awareness to interpret higher vibrations, to channel healing energy and beautiful works of art, to help us all live in harmony and wisdom. Your gifts are a blessing to this earth. Know it is so.
There comes a time when you must acknowledge that you need the help of a higher power; that you need the wisdom and compassion of all that is to heal yourself, to solve your problems in surprising and miraculous ways with soul satisfying results.
Dear ones, you cannot do it all by yourselves! Give up the illusion of control and allow the wisdom, grace, and peace of spirit to work in your lives.
You will have access to all wisdom, all possibilities, all combinations of factors, all inspirations and ideas. It is having the entire universe at your call.
Let go of your grasp on that which is holding you back! Let go of your narrow picture of how things will happen.
Allow yourselves to be filled with fresh inspiration and energy. Allow the amazing upwelling of spirit in your precious lives!
