Many people say to me: “I wish I could talk with my guides, as you do with yours.” The problem with us human beings is that we want everything NOW. There have been many times in my own process where I only wanted to pick up a telephone and demand an answer from my guides, but by using that attitude, the answer never comes. The answer always comes unexpectedly. That is what is called self-revelation. Learning to listen to your soul is part of that process. One problem can be negative memories of this incarnation. If they are unresolved, they become your “little demons”. The only purpose for these demons of the past is to hinder us, which prevents us from moving forward.
As a child I very often listened to the voice of my soul, but I did not realize it. My guides would send me feelings if I had done something wrong to another person, and a voice would say: “That was not a very nice thing to do, Terry.” Listening to the voice of my soul would give me the opportunity to apologize and to admit my mistake to myself and the person that had been affected. As I went through these experiences as a child and a teenager, slowly I became conscious of something within. It would confirm, whether a decision I had made was right or wrong. Of course, there were times where I simply would not listen, because I had made up my mind regarding on how things should be.
There have been many occasions when I have made the wrong choices, I have lost my way and and gone off in the wrong direction. Then my guides have stepped in and said:
Terry, this was not the right thing to do, we did advise you. Now you are blaming everybody else, because you did not listen. You actually took yourself into the current situation. That is why we are sending you these feelings and impressions now, to help you get back onto the right track. When you do not listen to the message offered by your soul, is when we intervene to steer you back onto the right pathway. We have heard you many times when you have said: “This challenge is too difficult.” Whenever you react or respond like that, we realise that you have lost trust in us and yourself. Then you complain later on that we are not helping you. We cannot help you if you do not trust. You will not listen, because of your distrust. The voice of your soul is the most beautiful thing you have; it will never let you down.
“We are not there to make decisions for you.”
Our job, as your guides, is to help you fulfil your life’s purpose, the purpose that you were born with. However, you want instant answers all the time; you want to know how everything will work out. In doing that, you forget the most important thing: Everything is a process, a process that will bring you to the truth. The voice of your soul is the best companion you can have. And we, your guides, are there to support you and help you create harmony between you and your soul. We are not there to make decisions for you. The voice of the soul will communicate in a way that individuals will understand, depending on the level of consciousness they have reached. Unfortunately, humans do not like to take risks, generally speaking, because they do not know the outcome. They only see the problems, not the possibilities.
When people ask me who their guide is, I sometimes reply by making a joke that does not have an ill intent: “Your guides cannot answer, because they are in therapy.” The individual that they are working with does not want to listen, but messengers from the higher intelligence never give up.
I believe that our soul is not just part of us; it is always connected to the higher intelligence. We have to make the decision to listen to a higher, spiritual intelligence, not allow our personal demands to take control, otherwise everything becomes static. Our life’s journey is always a mystery, it is an adventure. So, who do we listen to: The demons, the angels or the guides? Right in the middle of that triangle we can find the voice of our soul.
There have been times in my life when I have rejected the wise council that the higher intelligence offers. I simply had to make those mistakes to know the difference between when the voice of my soul is communicating, and when it is the voice of my little demons (my ego!).
What I am writing about is a daily challenge, but it is a challenge that stimulates my everyday life. Do not go into hibernation. Be alone with yourself sometimes, and listen to your feelings and the messages that come through your dreams.
Allowing yourself time to be alone, free from the influence of others, is very important!
