How To Be Your Own Guru

Guru

What do you do when you’re looking for answers to your issues? You “google it” or turn to someone who you “think” has the answers. There are so many wonderful teachers and gurus out there, but the truth is, there is no better guidance than that which comes from within. I’ve created a list of tips on how to be your own guru. That way, when you need guidance and no one is there, you can look yourself in the mirror and say, I got you!

Two Kinds Of Fear

fear

I came across a video where Tara Sophia Mohr was speaking about her favorite teaching about fear.

In the video Tara explains that she learned that there are two different types of fear.

Pachad (the fear of projected or imagined things) – this type fear is where we see threats and dangers that are not really there and Yirah (the fear-like feeling we feel when we are touching the sacred) – this type of fear is the fear we feel when we are inhabiting a larger space that we are use to.

It took me by surprise to hear the new “Yirah” definition of fear. I had never thought about fear in that way, although I had experienced it before, and still do.

I felt it when writing my book Journey Through Sattara. I kept feeling like the book was bigger than me, and like it came from a huge source because it just flowed through me.

I felt it when I started my blog and started putting my feelings, experiences, and heart out on the line. The small in me wanted me to just be quiet.

I still feel it sometimes when I offer my time and services by translating the energy of my spirit guides Ray.

The part of me that is use to being quiet, stepping on eggshells, and asking for permission, cannot fathom such an open and free form of expression. I’ve experienced both types of fears, but the “Yirah” form of fear is the one I seem to be encountering the most on my journey as an intuitive guide.

I am being asked in this intuitive work to lay my rational mind to the side, to believe in miracles and synchronicity, to trust my gut, and not the statistics. It’s not easy considering that we are brought up to use history and numbers as fact and not our natural drives and instincts.

The divine in us wants us to loosen up, allow more, feel more, experience more, and that’s a lot to take in for our more reserved, structured-based personalities. 

Have you recognized this type of new fear (Yirah) in your life as you’ve moved towards your dreams or towards new life experiences?

If so, tell us about it in the comments section.

It takes some practice to get use to the divine within you, but it’s possible. Everyday you just have to remind yourself that you are here to show your divine nature. It’s welcomed and encouraged, and you don’t have to rush it.

Just relax into your new sense of freedom and love, and after a while the sense of Yirah will begin to fade away.

How Do I Get This Ocean Outside Of Me?

For the past couple of days, something has felt off inside of me.

I have been so emotional.

The tears that I have cried over the past couple of days have been tears of sadness, accompanied with thoughts like: Who am I? Why am I here? What was I really made for? And why is the current way I am expressing myself, causing me to feel tension inside?

Yesterday night, after I settled down from the tears, I received a vision.

I was in the ocean surfing some beautiful waves. My logical mind wanted to disrupt the vision because riding big waves is impossible for me. For one, I am terrified of being in the middle of the ocean and for two, I can’t swim.

I trusted the vision however, and sat with the energy for a few minutes after it was done. I felt great after the vision and thought, wow that was wonderful – now only if I could do that in real life.

I got up this morning with the intention of just taking it easy. I was going to just let the day flow and just take whatever came my way. I didn’t want to get too much in the mind or pay too much attention to anything today. I just kind of wanted it to be an easy day.

Throughout the day, as I was on some social media sites I felt very emotional again, but this time I wasn’t crying tears of sadness. They were tears of joy, and they seemed to come forward for the littlest things.

Several quotes made me cry this morning.

Several pictures that I looked at made me cry.

Just seeing people in their natural states of being made me cry.

It was very weird to say the least, but I trusted that the New tears were a part of the process.

Out of nowhere I was drawn to this video where Kate Northrup (author and truth seeker) was interviewing Meggan Watterson (author and self proclaimed spiritual misfit) on Glimpse TV.

Meggan said something so profound, and it summed up the feelings that I have been feeling during this spiritual journey.

On my spiritual journey I have felt this feeling inside that I could not define until I heard Meggan say, how do I get this ocean outside of me?

The lightbulb went off, and I said, yes that’s it!

That is what I was feeling.

That is the tension inside that I didn’t know how to express, and she had summed it up perfectly.

It’s so true. You start out on this road knowing there is so much inside, but for some reason it seems too powerful to express.

Perhaps you were told to keep quiet in the past, or maybe your sensitivity, power, and presence were not appreciated throughout your life, or maybe you hold back out of fear that if you open your heart again, someone will take your best work (your heart, your love, and your sentiments), and stomp on them.

You’ve been heartbroken in the past, and you don’t trust opening your heart again or sharing yourself freely with others. I found a quote this morning that helps remedy those feelings.

Let your heart crumble into an infinite amount of tiny, precious seeds. Then plant love everywhere you go. InstagramView On Instagram

All of the above are reasons why I haven’t allowed the ocean of love, knowledge, and compassion to flow forth from me freely. The uneasiness that I feel is that ocean inside saying, it’s time to let go, it’s time to trust, it’s time to link with your real flow, but I keep denying its powerful presence into my life.

So the vision of the waves that I received from this morning showed me that I was getting ready to finally link with information that could help me move forward in a powerful way.

It is a beautiful feeling to see that your soul and your intuition are guiding you to the information that you need to hear.

So I am on a quest now to find out – how do I get this ocean outside of me?

I have done a pretty good job by releasing some of my heart and soul into different areas (my books, my Writing Heart on Tumblr, my Instagram site, my Pinterest boards, my Soul Guidance site, etc), but I feel there is something more – something bigger, that is trying to be expressed – something profound.

I can feel it trying to break through, but I still have these walls up, and it’s having a difficult time getting in.

I realized today that now is the time to surrender to the wave, to the flow, to life, and to trust that what is coming is beautiful and will reconcile these mixed feelings and heal alot of hearts.

It’s time to surrender and really openheartedly trust the flow of life without fear, without apprehension, and without apologies.

Thank you so much for reading!

A Terrible Experience With A Psychic & How It Helped Me Refine My Character As An Intuitive Guide

Shine Your Light

A few years back, I visited with a psychic.

I don’t know what made me go in there. Maybe it was the neon purple sign in the window, or the catchy price, or it could have been the fact that I was going through a very difficult time and just needed some reassurance.

Nevertheless, I ended up in the chair sitting across from a young woman who was very inviting at first. After a few minutes of sitting with her however, I should have known that she did not have my best interest at heart.

Warning Sign # 1 – When she sat down and started my reading, she had the phone in the middle of the table and she answered it in the middle of our session – not once, but twice.

What a huge red flag! 

Not only did I insult myself by staying, I didn’t notice right then and right there that everything in me was telling me that it wasn’t going to be a pleasant experience.

Towards the end of the reading, she told me that there was something that she saw that was a danger to me, but she couldn’t tell me because it would require more time and more money.

The second huge red flag!

Now I know from experience that working with energy and being an intuitive guide is alot of work, and you want to make sure that you set boundaries, and that you get paid well for what you do – I understand, but if you saw information that could harm someone’s life – why would you not lead with that information? Why would it take you until the end of the session and $100 more to tell someone what you see?

I declined the extra time with her because I was beyond uncomfortable. My body was tense, my spirit was broken, and I just didn’t want to be in the building anymore. She made me feel like shit.

As I started to pack up and leave, and informed her that I would not be sitting with her again, she told me that if I didn’t, my life would get worse, and that thing (curse, negativity, ill will) that she saw for me would stick around, and wouldn’t get any better. She made me feel like my life was doomed, and that she was the only vessel from which my well-being and healing could flow.

I walked out of that place feeling devastated.

I cannot believe that I gave that much power over to that woman, and actually believed what she was telling me. I was that desperate at the time, that it kind of tore my world apart. Because of course – she had the gift, and those who have the “gift” in my mind – always do right by it. Right? WRONG! How silly was it for me to believe that everyone blessed with foresight, strong intuition, and healing abilities would use them for only good?

Once I discovered my gifts of intuition, being able to translate the energy of my spirit guides, connecting to people through my writing, and healing – I was fully aware of what to do with my gifts and what NOT to do with my gifts.

I have seen and experienced first hand what it’s like to have someone have a gift and misuse it, and I would never do that to anyone else.

I guess in a way, the experience helped refine my character. It showed me that I have the power to guide others to well-being or to discourage them. I have the power to uplift another’s spirit or add to their frustration and diminish their light.

For those of you out there that need help, I want you to know that there are honest people that have love, generosity, and care inside that will try their best to see you through a situation, but there are also people out there that will see your vulnerability and milk it for everything it’s worth.

It’s important to honor yourselfeven if you are seeking help or going through a rough period. Don’t stay in any situation that you feel in your gut is not right. 

If you are visiting with a counselor, a healer, an intuitive guide or whatever it may be – they should be respectful of your time and presence, and if they are not – walk away. You should never be made to feel pressured, uncomfortable, or like you have to give something that you are uncomfortable giving.

There are plenty of guides, healers, and spiritual practitioners around that can help you heal and move in the direction of your true nature, but if something doesn’t feel right to you – pay attention.

All messages offered should be uplifting, and never demeaning. Those guides who have your best interest at heart are skilled at dealing with people, and know how to speak to you clearly and respectfully.

I share this story with you so that you can get a sense of some of the experiences that refined my character as an intuitive guide and so that you can always remember that the highest guidance you can get – always comes from inside.

There are going to be times when you need help, and there are plenty of well meaning people out there that are put in your path for a reason, but if something doesn’t feel right to you – pay attention.

There are other options for healing and guidance, and you don’t ever have to be made to feel that there is only one way to your answers, to God, and to the help that you need.

Don’t let anyone make you feel that way – ever.

Part of growing spiritually means learning to listen to yourself,  learning to trust your instincts, and learning that you know more than you think you do.

That experience showed me what to do with my gifts and what definitely NOT to do with my gifts. I would never want anyone leaving my presence feeling like I took something from them, discouraged them, or made them feel like their only path to freedom and joy was through me.

There are many ways to get the answers you seek. Open your heart, listen to your guidance, and trust yourself. There are many healers and helpers out there. Go with the ones that you feel a connection to, and if you don’t resonate with them or feel good about an experience with them – walk away and don’t ever look back.

Guided, Protected, & Safe – Always Listen To Your Intuition

Intuition

A few years back, I went to a park near my house to clear my head. I had my blanket stretched out across the grass, and had brought along a book to read and some soothing music to listen to. I was lying down with my nose in the book when I felt this weird presence behind me.

There was a path right next to the patch of grass that I was lying in, and two people were strolling down the path.

When I turned around to look in their direction, I just felt something very eerie. The gentlemen and the female that was with him didn’t look like they were from around my neighborhood. I had been to that park many times, and had seen many different people, and something about them just didn’t sit right with me.

I calmed myself down and continued to read my book, as they walked past me.

The guy turned around and gave me a cold stare that sent chills down my spine, and then he looked around to see who else was in the park.

At that point, I got very nervous, and something told me that the couple didn’t mean any good. I looked around to see how far my car was parked and to estimate if I could get away, if they came back or tried something.

I saw the couple stop not too far away from where I was, and they kept looking over at me, and then around the park again to see who else was around.

A group of people that were playing basketball was the last group there, and the two waited at the end of the path until the group of people got into their cars and were about to drive off.

My anxiety at that point went into overdrive, and I started to panic. I could get up at that moment and try to make it to my car or I could stick around to see what the two suspicious acting people were up to.

I looked at the car again as the couple kept looking in my direction and waiting for all of the cars to leave the parking lot. I could tell that as soon as the people left, they were planning on doing something – I just didn’t know what. I had my purse with me, my laptop computer, and an expensive phone. Who knows what they were going to do.

I felt a calm come over me as several dozen birds flew to the trees next to me. I can’t explain it, I just felt calmer. I thought one last time about running to my car, but I heard a calm voice say to me, be still.

I don’t know what made me trust the voice, but I did – even though I was terrified.

After the last car pulled out of the parking lot, I heard the sound of a motorcycle nearby.

Would you believe that my hubby had gotten off of work early, and when he noticed I wasn’t home, he went to the spot that he believed I would be?

When I saw his motorcycle pull into that parking lot, I swear to you I felt like the heavens opened up and like angels started singing. I felt completely safe and protected. I knew that my husband wasn’t going to let anything happen to me. I always feel safe around him, and all of my anxiety and tension eased right up.

I smiled from ear to ear as I saw my knight in motorcycle armor walk across the grass towards me.

When he got to me, he said, what’s wrong with a smile on his face, and then looked in the direction of the two people that were standing their staring in my direction.

I said, nothing, you’re right on time, and then told him about the behavior of the two people.

After they saw us interacting, the two people walked away. You would too if you saw how big he is. He is kind of big in stature, but my hubby’s presence is big too, and he has the heart and strength to match it. So I wasn’t worried at all after he showed up.

I could not believe the timing of it. I felt so watched over, protected, and guided, and it was an experience that I will never forget.

I share this story because I have been feeling a little disconnected lately. I forgot how good it feels to recall all the times when I did feel aligned and connected. It works wonders for getting the energy and focus moving in a different direction.

If you feel stuck, try it. Try to recall the moments when you did feel aligned and connected. Once you start to change your thoughts, you’ll start to recall more and more moments, and it will change your mood completely.

Do you have a story of intuition or manifestation to share?

If so I would love to hear from you.

Send your stories to me at reneeb@thesoulsguidance.com. I will share the story on my website www.thesoulsguidance.com, and on my wordpress blog as well. Be sure to add a title for your story, your name, and your website address so that I can provide a link to your website. I will email you the link to your story, and you can share it with your friends and family if you’d like.

Thanks for reading!

I look forward to hearing your stories.

I love to share stuff like this.

Internal Bullying

Internal Bullying

What Is Internal Bullying?

It’s a process that goes on inside of you, that stifles your creativity, your movement, and your progression to the new and better life that awaits you.

Some Of You Are Fully Aware Of Its Presence.

Think about it – that moment that you go to do something new, and the little voice inside tells you that you better not do it. The voice that has you doubting your ability to perform because of some past failure. The voice that can’t see anything good in you at all, and that wants you to know that you f*cked up in a major way, and you better not even think about forgiving yourself for what you did. It’s the voice inside that spends its days making your life a living hell just because.

It’s so funny because there could be a part of you that has grown and and that wants you to see your situation in a different light. You may even be ready to heal and move on from the incident, but there is something else inside that just will not let you forget what happened. It’s not even that it’s just a nuisance – it goes around and spreads its virus through each area of your life.

As a result, you end up questioning your gut instincts, denying yourself the freedom to choose new things, and you also end up questioning your integrity and your entire path in life.

In your heart you know you are meant to be free. In your heart you know that things are meant to work out for you, but there is this internal bully that stops you at the gates. It doesn’t want you to pass. It wants you to remain helpless, hopeless, and feeling like nothing.

Why?

Because somewhere in your life, you made a mistake that you thought was unforgivable, unfixable, and unresolvable. So this energy took that opinion that you concluded about yourself and made it into your worst nightmare.

It doesn’t show up full forced and ready for war. No, it wouldn’t want you to see its craziness and catch on to what it’s doing to you. Instead, it shows up as a negative thought here and there. It moves into your space stealthily, and sabotages your thoughts of success.

Think about the times when you are thinking about following your heart. Following your heart should be a no brainer. It should be something that is automatic and unquestionable, but how often do you question if the decision to follow your gut, your inner promptings, and your intuition was correct?

That’s Internal Bullying.

If you have to question if you can be free to honor your life’s calling, follow your bliss, and put your best foot out into the world – you have some serious internal bullying going on – make no mistake about it.

Your heart knows what that heartless energy is doing to you, but you sometimes have to step outside of yourself to recognize it. That’s why there are so many teachers, aids, angels, and guides out there pointing you in the right direction. They are around because sometimes we can’t see what the problem is. We are constantly asking for the solution,  but we don’t recognize what the problem is.

When We Seek Outside Help, We Are Asking For One Thing and One Thing Only – Validation.

We want to know that we are worthy, relevant, heard, and that the choices we are making for our life are the right ones. If we dig a little deeper we will discover that what we are really looking for is a sense of resolve within ourselves. Sometimes that sense of resolve comes from your mother saying, “okay sweetie give it one more try”. Sometimes that sense of resolve comes from your pastor saying, “it’s okay, repent, and go on about your life”. Sometimes that sense of resolve comes from your child looking into your eyes and offering you a smile that says, “Mom I love you, no matter what road you decide to take”.

The way to stop internal bullying is to make the decision to trust your instincts, follow your own path, and trust that in following your heart, the rest will work itself out. You can also find peace within yourself about your decisions. You don’t have to be bullied off your path. You want more? You go for it, and don’t give up until you see it into fruition.

Your Path Is To Trust Your Intuition & To Follow Your Heart.

It’s gonna wear different clothes sometimes, and lead you to different places, but the ultimate feeling that chasing your dreams is trying to get you to embody is the feeling that you belong here and that you deserve joy and fulfillment. There are endless paths to the feeling of joy, so choice one that feels right to you, and see where it takes you.

Tools For Rebuilding Yourself

Rebuilding

Yesterday we talked about the inner work of rebuilding yourself.

For those of you that missed that post, you can read it here.

Today, I am going to offer you some tools that may help with the process.

These tools have helped me personally, and it is my privilege to be able to share them with you. Although the tools may seem like simple suggestions, believe me, they work wonders. It’s only when we stop looking for solutions outside of ourselves and tap into the infinite resources within, that things start to shift in our lives.

I hope these tools help you on your journey!

1. Journaling

  • Journaling is a therapeutic tool.
  • You can savor the fact that your journal will not talk back, interrupt, or judge what you say.
  • Journaling also helps you process the events that have happened and your feelings towards them.
  • Writing down what you feel stops you from harboring those feelings inside.
  • Sometimes we just need the space to tell things how we have “seen” them or “experienced” them, and journaling allows you to do that.

2. Pay Attention To Your Negative Self Talk

    • We all do it. We speak down to ourselves, we call ourselves stupid, or beat up on ourselves. This scare tactic does not do you any good.
    • You would never talk to a close friend or those you love the way that you talk to yourself sometimes. So give yourself that same respect.


  • When negative self talk starts, ask yourself, “is this really coming from me?” Nine times out of ten that negative voice is not your own voice. Ask yourself who is it that is speaking for you? You may hear the answer, “this is fear speaking”, “this is anger speaking”, or “this is insecurity speaking”. Either way, recognizing it is a huge step.
  • Once you recognize how you are speaking to yourself, and that most of the time it’s coming from some place other than your true self, you can then start to speak to yourself in a way that is more productive, insightful, and uplifting.

3. Pay Attention To Your Nighttime Dreams

  • For those of you who read my blog regularly, you know that I am a huge fan of tapping into the wisdom of your dreams. As a matter of fact, I have a whole website dedicated to helping others discover the meaning of their dreams.
  • Don’t take these theatrical stories that your mind dreams up for granted. They show you all that is going on inside you. How you feel, what you desire, and the vast potential of your creativity all shows up in your nighttime dreams.
  • Even if you don’t want to dig as deep as decoding your dreams, you can keep a dream journal, just to read and see how vivid your inner world really is. Keeping a dream journal is simple. If you don’t have one, or you don’t know how to start one, you can take a look at the steps I have outlined for you here.

4. Allow Your Emotions

  • This one may be difficult for some of you, but it’s worth it.
  • We discussed in the previous article that society expects you to have it all together, keep it all together, and show no signs of the contrary. Well that is ridiculous. We are all human, and we have feelings and emotions so that we can cleanse ourselves. Allow yourself to cry, allow yourself to vent, allow yourself a moment of anger, but please don’t stay there.
  • Feel your emotions, examine them, see when they are triggered, and just be with them for a few moments. It’s okay to not have it all together. We are human – not Mr. and Mrs. Perfect. Your going to feel moments of disappointment, sadness, anger, and resentment. Feel those emotions. The only thing that hurts is when you deny the opportunity for you to feel and release them.

Because pain is just emotion trapped in the body.

  • Allowing these emotions gives you the permission to set them free.

5. Be Patient With Yourself

  • It’s okay to mess up. It’s okay to make a mistake. It’s okay to not know what you are doing. It’s called “being human”.
  • Take your time with these steps.
  • If you feel you have messed up somewhere, recognize that every moment is brand new. You can start again. Just allow it.
  • It’s okay to have bad days. A bad day and bad feelings are just a sign for you to show a bit more compassion towards your situation. Bad days are an opportunity for you to show yourself a little more patience.
  • You don’t have to get it all right – right from the jump.

6. Trust Your Intuition

  • Every post that I write is me trusting my intuition.
  • I pay attention to my dreams, I pay attention to my inner promptings, and even sometimes when I doubt myself, I erase those thoughts, and trust myself anyway.
  • No one knows you better than the “inner you”.

I was also going to say – allow your missteps, but that goes right along with being patient with yourself. Sometimes we just don’t get it right, and to even soften that a bit, sometimes there is just a better path for us, and it just takes some readjusting (attitude wise), to get back on track.

Rebuilding yourself is a process, but we have a choice everyday. We can go through life miserable, stuck, and afraid, or we can try (taking one step at a time) to rebuild ourself.

Thank you for reading!

If you have some tools for rebuilding yourself, please feel free to share them in the comments section.

The #1 Thing That’s Killing Your Joy

Wilted Joy

Living From The Heart DAY 7

I could have easily titled this article The #1 Thing That’s Detrimental To Your Health or The #1 Relationship That You Are Struggling With. No matter what the name, all arrows point towards one thing: Your Connection With Your Source/God energy.

I’ve learned through decoding one of my dreams the importance of this connection.

I will lay this out in a way that is easy for all to understand.

#1 Your inner-being/God energy knows you intimately & is waiting to connect with you on many different levels.

My inner-being simply chose my dreams because it knows that I love mysteries, it knows that I love puzzles and figuring things out, and it knows how happy I get when I see my own connection to this world.

#2 Your inner-being knows the niche (work, art, industry) that you fit best in.

My inner-being used my niece (yes my little niece) in the dream, as an example of the kind of relationship that it would like to have with me. It also showed me how to go about enhancing that relationship so that I could flow more passionately in my expression. I adore my niece. In my eyes there is nothing that she can do wrong. I love everything that she does. There is no way that I would ever look at her and see anything less than perfection.

That is how your inner-being feels about you at all times. It’s waiting to connect with you in a way that is enriching and fulfilling to you.

#3 The only way to connect with this is to welcome your gifts, intuitions, and knowing with open arms. The same way you would open up to those whom you adore.

Imagine you walking into a room and you see your favorite person. Your face always lights up. You rush towards them to give them a hug or a kiss. You, through those gestures, are showing that you adore that particular person. The same goes for accepting and embracing your inner being. Imagine another version of you happy to see you all the time. Always waiting there with open arms to greet you.

#4 The only reason suffering ever occurs is because you lose your connection to that pure energy.

We go through so many different things in life. Sometimes honestly we just lose the connection. We judge ourselves, we put others down, we don’t see the benefit of the doubt in a situation, and sometimes we don’t respond to our inner promptings with care. All of this is because when devastation hits we feel like we have failed in some way. Along with that feeling of failure comes the feeling of doubt. We stop trusting ourselves and we also stop trusting that we are making the right decisions in our life.

#5 In the dream my niece was pulling on her ear.

She was drawing my attention to listening. When I think of listening I automatically think of intuition. She wanted me to recognize that I wasn’t paying attention to my inner wisdom. Earrings symbolize accentuating your ability to hear your higher self. She wanted me to know to pay attention in the dream and to my dreams.

Do you know how many ideas are sitting just underneath the surface waiting for you to discover them.

Short Story

My niece recognized one day that we could communicate without words. She walked over to a lamp that was sitting on my nightstand and she rubbed her hands along the bottom part of the lamp. I said to her, “do you want me to turn that on?” She just looked at me and smiled so I turned on the lamp. She started clapping and smiling and she looked the happiest I had ever seen. As if she was saying, “FINALLY some understands that I can’t use words yet, but that doesn’t mean I can’t communicate.”

It was so funny and so cute. She understood that day that I could understand her in ways other than talking. She was pointing me back in the direction of my source. Funny that she would use the lamp to do such a thing. I knew her and I had a strong connection before she was even born. I use to talk to her. Even though she wasn’t here yet, I knew here energy was present. I believe she heard me, and that’s why we have such a strong connection even though she’s only almost 2. I read a quote today that falls in line with this…

“Important encounters are planned by souls long before the bodies see each other.” {Paulo Coelho}

P.Coelho

# 6 The dream also pointed to some old patterns of thought that were disallowing my full connection to the flow.

One day when I was younger, I was at my aunt’s house. I made a mistake and put an opened jar of fruit cocktail in the fridge. My aunt came out yelling at me and asked me if I was trying to kill myself. I didn’t understand what she was talking about. She was furious that I hadn’t heard a word about not putting opened cans in the fridge. I felt kind of stupid even though I was really young. I shouldn’t have felt that way because – if someone never taught this – how do you know?

The same thing goes with understanding the most important relationship in your life. Some would beg to differ if you tell them that the most important relationship is between YOU and YOU. We are taught from a very young age to direct our love outwardly. By doing that and not understanding the primary relationship we hurt the relationship that means the most to us. I am in no way shape or form saying be stingy with your love, but we have to learn to love ourselves first.

#7 That experience taught me something long before I recognized its value.

It taught me how to be a better teacher. Decoding my dream today showed me my particular niche is helping others connect to their source energy. This is the most important relationship to build. I learned that people do not need to feel stupid and confused for “not knowing something”. My experience when I was younger at my aunt’s house mixed with the dream that I just had, opens up a space for me to shine light on this subject in a new way.

#8 The other false belief that it touched upon was the idea that {I’m Too Old To Learn}.

That very belief stunts your growth. Take this article for instance. I have been into my dreams for years trying different ways to connect the dots. It wasn’t until I put down the dream dictionaries and started trusting my own intuition that the pieces started coming together. It’s the same thing with your relationship to your source/inner-being. You can use other stuff as a reference, but it doesn’t make an impact unless you understand your primary relationship first. You have to trust your own gut, your own inner promptings, your own inner wisdom. That is what is meant when people say – search inside. It is an absolutely essential part of navigating through this life.

If that system fails – everything else does too.

Fail is too strong of a word, but I think you get the point. If your primary relationship (the one between you and your inner being) is not tended to, all else fails.

You are never too old to dream. If you have a calling in your heart there is a way to understand and connect with it, but you must build up your most important relationship first. Everything else will then fall into place.

I Am So Thrilled

I literally jumped up and down when I discovered this information. It’s not that this information hasn’t been around since the beginning of time. It has, but everyone does not connect to it in just one way. I am here to let my light shine, to uncover piece by piece the information that has been hidden. As it reveals itself, I can feel some of the layers peeling away.

I’ll leave you with this last story.

I know I’ve talked your ear off, but I love seeing the connections in this information.

I once had a dream of a huge Buddha like statue. Long before I knew the Buddha story. A helicopter was flying around spraying dusty gold paint over it. I couldn’t understand why, but the helicopter flew away for a bit. When it flew away, a piece of the statue cracked and the most powerful light started to shine through the crack. It was so bright that it blinded everyone that was standing around.

I feel like that person that has been covered up for a long time. Not knowing her true power or her true worth, but my inner promptings are stronger than any temporary setbacks that I may have faced & I am here to tell you… So are yours. Your inner promptings led you here.

It is no mistake.

I appreciate you reading this.

I hope to hear from you.
