Left to our own devices, we tend to fall into a place of anxiety, stress, poor self-confidence, and overwhelm at one point or another. Some of us get stuck there, for a long, long, long time. I know a select few that enjoy being in that place permanently, but that isn’t you. I am guessing you would no rather be spinning in circles than having a root canal (which are technically pretty dangerous as they are linked to degenerative disease).
So how exactly do we get stuck in the spiral of monkey mind chatter that NEVER shuts up? You know, the voice in your head that is ongoing and flitters from one thing to another. The voice that puts you down in a futile attempt to protect you from experiencing pain, disappointment, or “scary” change.
Here’s what happens…
1. You experience information overload.
You want advice on the new guy you are dating. Pretty soon you have a laundry list from friends and family of why he sucks, why he’s a keeper, why he could be a serial killer, why he is marriage material, along with what you should do to keep and get rid of him.
2. You think that people and things will make you happy.
When I lose 25 pounds I will be happy.
When I get that car I will be happy.
When I find love I will be happy.
When I live in Fiji and can sip mojitos all day I will be happy.
How has that worked for you so far? My guess is that said “happiness” doesn’t last. And then you start over looking for the NEXT thing.
3. You experience something uncomfortable, awkward, and/or downright painful. And then you hold on to it, FOREVER.
You go through a nasty breakup, and find yourself alone again. You do a presentation at work, and it fails miserably. You are a victim of a crime, and it replays in your head over and over again.
You try to shove these feelings and experiences to the abyss of your existence, rather than face the messiness of it all. But the goo keeps seeping through the cute little container you put it in hoping that it would stay hidden away.
Say hello to a lifetime of self-sabotage and avoidance.
So what does a spirit guide have to do with all this?
Identifying and having conversations with (no, not out loud in a public place of course) your spirit guide allows to you tap in to your SOUL self. And why is this important?
Because when you are guided by your soul self, your authentic voice, your spirit, you are making decisions that COME FROM WITHIN. And when you are guided by this truth, the money mind chatter is just that, meaningless chatter.
1. When you listen to your spirit guide there is no information overload because you know what FEELS right. You know what to do that is going to be what YOU need, make YOU happy.
So other’s opinions don’t mean shit (even though they will still probably give you their “brilliant” unsolicited advice anyway).
2. When you are connected to your spirit guide, your happiness radiates from within, where you are RIGHT NOW. You are all you need to be happy.
3. When you listen to your spirit guide, he/she/it will help you move through the pain, and give you comfort so you can find peace.
Or maybe he/she/it will give you the courage to seek help, or just acknowledge the issue so you can decide what to do from there.
Your soul self is not afraid. It does not see you as damaged or broken. It only sees love.
So get a VISUAL on who/what your spirit guide is. This is KEY, which is why I don’t tell you to just talk to your “soul self”. (If I did, you would probably just WTF me and ask how you are supposed to know where to find your “soul self”.)
My spirit guide is a dragon. She emulates confidence, strength, compassion, calmness, and joy. I can SEE her. I can sit with her and have a conversation. But guess what, she IS me. She is my voice.
