GAIA: “7 Things That Are Blocking Your Spirit Guides”

Your angels, spirit animals and spirit guides in general are supposed to be connecting and communicating with you, offering guidance for your life and acting as a source of light and encouragement. If you aren’t experiencing this, what’s the problem? As it turns out, it’s probably largely you yourself that stands in your own way, as well as the way of your spirit guides! Everything from your attitude to even the things that you eat can affect the connection with your spirit guides.

Never fear, however, there are a lot of things you can do in order to open the channels again. You are the problem, and you are also the solution.

Here are seven common problems that almost everyone faces. Of course, there are many more that you may discover in your own journey, so take these as a beginning point of examination and take a good look at your own heart and lifestyle:

INEXPERIENCE

So you’re new to the spiritual work game. That is no big deal! However, it can trip you up a little if you don’t know what you’re doing.

The best practice is to not do much at all! Keep an open heart and mind, of course, but learn to relax your mind, perhaps through a daily meditation, hold onto your patience and keep your expectations realistic.

You can also practice heightening all of your senses and increasing your awareness. Again, don’t constantly be on the lookout, but instead open the channels of your receptiveness.

DISORGANIZATION

You attract what’s around you. Is your home a big pile of clutter with random objects lost in the fray? Is your desk even visible under those stacks of who-knows-what? The state of your affairs can reflect your heart. This is why space clearing is so important in Feng Shui. Clean space, clean spirit!

That’s the kind of spirit and environment that your guides are attracted to. Make things as easy as possible on them and create the most appealing, welcoming atmosphere to them, and let them get to work.

EXPECTATIONS

Waiting for a gigantic sign with life directions to fall out of the sky and hit you on the head… literally? It’s time to move on and instead focus on your bond with your guides.

You never know how your guides will contact you, and by setting your expectations even really high, you’re putting them in a box and limiting yourself more than anything. Sometimes the gestures will be big and grand; other times, they will be just mere feelings, gentle whispers in your heart or your ears, or a fleeting visual. Sometimes, these signs are even more powerful than a huge clap of thunder!

Find the small signs, and the big ones may or may not come. It doesn’t matter! Once you connect with your guides, you’ll realize that the sign and the journey with the spirits itself is what matters.

IMPATIENCE

If you’re constantly wondering and anxiously waiting for messages from your spirit guides, the internal turmoil and anxiety you’re building up could cause you to miss it all together! Plus, when you’re in this state, you aren’t having faith in your guides, you’re demanding to have your way and your results. Where’s the beauty in that?

Building up your patience also builds your trust in your guides, thus strengthening your bond all the more. When you’re facing challenges, you can still know that your guides have your best interests at heart, and that they will be there for you at just the right time.

When you aren’t looking for it, all kinds of great things can happen unexpectedly. With a stronger bond with your guide, you’ll start to recognize that the coincidences that seem so fortuitously timed are intentional messages and guidance from the spirits who care about you.

DRAMA

The chaos of certain relationships and situations can certainly be the utmost distractions. When you’re constantly squabbling with an acquaintance or trying to make everyone happy, you yourself aren’t happy. You’re agitated, likely closed off, and unfocused. This can make it hard to connect with your spirit guides.

Ask your guides to help you clear your heart. Get rid of the negativity and fear and replace it with the peaceful, loving energy of positivity. Also ask your guides to help point out any relationships that you may have outgrown, ones that are only slowing you down and harming more than helping. It’s okay to trim back relationships that are draining you of valuable emotional and spiritual energy.

While it’s important to still love everyone around you no matter what, it’s your choice who to pour yourself into. The more negative energy you collect around yourself, your friends included, the harder it will be for your spirit guides to connect to you.

FOOD

Humans are clusters of energy waves, moving faster and faster all the time. As a human you have agreed to see yourself as solid forms through consensus reality. Everything you do and think, everything you eat and drink, in fact, everything you put into and around your body effects the overall vibration of your entire being. After all, we are energy, and food is energy for us, thus affecting our energy overall.

Therefore, it is quite essential that you pay attention to the vibrations of the foods you eat. When you eat foods that have a high and rapid vibration, you are more able to hold a strong, healthy, exuberant and joyful state. When, on the other hand, you eat foods of a slower, lower frequency, you lower your vibrations and, wonder why you don’t feel quite so good that day.

Each of us has a signature vibration; each food you ingest contributes to that vibration. Here are some of the foods for lower vibrations that you should avoid, not just for nutrition and toxin’s sakes:

  • Genetically modified (GMO) food, and conventional food that’s been treated with chemicals and pesticides
    White rice and flours
  • Sugars, sweeteners (artificial etc.)
  • Coffee
  • Sodas
  • Alcohol
  • Meat, fish and poultry
  • Processed, packaged, canned and fast foods
  • Unhealthy oils, like canola, cottonseed, margarine, and vegetable oils
  • Frozen foods
  • Pasteurized cows milk, yogurt and cheese
  • Cooked foods, deep fried foods and microwaving food

OVERANALYZING

Our egos can be one of the biggest trip-ups of all. When it’s chattering away in our ears that it knows best, tell it to be quiet for a bit! When you’re analyzing everything, you can break the connection with your guides. Some of the sweetest moments come when you have sudden clarity and insight that you hadn’t seen before.

Your guides want you to have faith in them, and it also creates the space for all the miracles they want for you. They may not be earth-shattering and crazy every time, but by letting them come to you instead of dissecting every little thing, you can reap their benefits more often and be amazed by their simple beauty.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Common Animal Messengers and Their Meaning”

animal-messengers.jpg

Animals have an important purpose on this earth. They walk alongside us as teachers, messengers and as givers of light and love. They help us to understand the world that we live in and they teach us so much about what was here before us and what will be here after us.

Animals are conscious, sentient beings and it is important that we treat all living creatures with the same dignity and respect that we expect.

The ancients have always regarded animals as being sacred and their behaviour was often used as clues and signs at to what Mother Earth might be up to.

By watching the behaviour of animals, we can get a better understanding of the energy around us and a deeper insight into intuitive messages and signs.

Just like we have spirit guides, we also have spirit animals. Often spirit animals will come into our lives to give us a message or to teach us something about our own ability and strength.

Sometimes an animal will come into our lives for a brief period of time as a way to signal us as to something that we need to pay attention to.

If you want to discover your Spirit Animal, start here.

But if you are curious about a particular animal messenger that seems to be popping up in your life either in your every day or in your dreams, here are some potential meanings-

Common Animal Messengers and Their Meaning-

Hawk: the strong hawk has keen eyes and strong wings. If you continually see hawks or images of hawks, it may be a sign that you need to look at something more closely before proceeding. It may also be a sign that a strong or important teacher or lesson will be unfolding in your life shortly.

Eagle: the eagle is a sign of spiritual protection and moving to a level of higher consciousness. If you repeatedly see eagles or eagle imagery in your life, it could be that you are transcending or shifting into a new realm of consciousness.

Raven/Crow: commonly considered a bad omen, seeing a crow or raven could indicate that you are ready to let go of something or that you are getting ready to enter into a “death and rebirth” cycle. Seeing a raven or crow very rarely indicates physical death, instead it is a sign of an upcoming rebirth.

Owl: seeing an owl is an indicator that you need to pay attention to your intuition and wisdom. The owl also comes as a reminder to pay attention to any gut feelings that you may be receiving as they are trying to point you in the right direction. The owl may also be a sign that you need to tune into your truth and act from a place of authenticity.

Cardinal: cardinal birds have often been associated with receiving a message from a deceased father figure or a male spirit guide. If you repeatedly see cardinals it could be a reminder that you are being loved and protected by this male, or a reminder to stay strong and confident in the path that you are walking.

Bluejay: seeing a Bluejay is often associated with receiving a message from a deceased female figure or female spirit guide. If you repeatedly see BlueJays it may be  a reminder to tune into your creativity and keep your creative projects flowing. It could also be an indication that your family needs you or that family unity is important.

Praying Mantis: the praying mantis comes to remind us that it is time to bring peace and stillness into our lives. The praying mantis comes as a messenger to remind us about the power of stillness and creating space in our lives for the things that we enjoy doing. Seeing a praying mantis repeatedly may also be a sign that there is a message that you need to pay attention to or something that you may be missing.

Lizard: if you repeatedly see lizards or lizard imagery, it may be an indicator that you need to pay more attention to your dreams and goals. Perhaps you have lost sight of all that you can achieve or perhaps you are feeling negative about your abilities to achieve all that you desire. Seeing a lizard is a reminder that you do have the power and that you need to spend more time cultivating your highest path.

Snake: seeing a snake is a powerful reminder of your life force and your passions. If you repeatedly see snakes or imagery of snakes, it could be that you need to pay attention to your passions and put more energy into pursuing them. Seeing a snake may also indicate that you are entering into a place of healing and renewal.

Spider: spiders carry powerful symbolism about creation and spiritual connectedness. When you see spiders often it may be an indication that you need to tune into your creative potential and follow through on any ideas or inspirations that you have to create. It may also be a sign of your connectedness to the spirit world and perhaps also indicate that spirit is trying to send you a message or reminder about this connection.

Dragonfly: seeing a dragonfly is a reminder that you are not alone and that you are very protected by your guardian angels and spirit guides. If you repeatedly see dragonflies it may also indicate that you are on the right path and are heading in the right direction for your soul.

Ladybug: the ladybug is commonly seen as a good luck sign and indicates that things are about to shift in your favor. Seeing ladybugs or ladybug imagery repeatedly may also be a sign of your need to pay gratitude for all that you have and the direction that your life is taking. Ladybugs may also indicate a good time for you to push forward in obtaining your highest dreams and wishes.

Butterfly: butterflies come to remind you about the power of transformation and that there needs to be a shift internally before you can shift externally. If you are repeatedly seeing butterflies, it may be a sign that you need to change or release some thoughts or feelings that are holding you back. Seeing a butterfly may also indicate a cycle of transformation or growth occurring in your life.

Wolf: repeatedly seeing a wolf or imagery of a wolf may indicate that it is time for you to pay attention to the people you are surrounding yourself with. Wolves may also indicate that it is time to unite with your family and loved ones in order to make it through this next chapter of your life. If you see a wolf, it is perhaps also a sign that you need to learn how to accept help from others.

Fox: foxes comes as a reminder that there could be a different way for you to approach your life or see things. If you repeatedly see foxes or imagery of foxes, it could be that you need to adjust your thinking about something and the way you are approaching things. Foxes may also come as a reminder to seek joy, to not take things so seriously and to laugh at the little things.

Using your intuition will be key in determining what messages a particular animal is trying to bring into your life. Use this as a guide, however if you found this page, it is most likely an indication that the message written here is for you.

MORAG: “7 Ways Our Multi Dimensional Soul Tribe Communicate & How We Can Communicate With Them”

na20.jpg

As we travel this time space continuum we call life, we are not alone. We are connected as beings of frequencies, to a multi verse of quantum dimensions. We are also connected to our soul tribe and that greater part of us, our higher self.

Some of us may be fortunate enough to have members of our soul tribe living and breathing in this reality with us. But we all have members of our soul tribe on hand, at all times, in higher dimensions, ready to guide, protect, heal and recharge us.

As a tribe we rotate lifetimes, some lifetimes we do and our tribal comrades man the home station, or travel with us. They may stay close from the fourth dimension as ancestral guides, or in the fifth or higher dimensions as guides and angels.

With each new lifetime our pack rotates experiences. Next lifetime we may well be the ones acting as guide to our soul mate on another planet, existing as another type of being. It’s all part of the grand school of life, filling our soul jars with wisdom, experience and love.

There are 7 main ways our tribe in the other dimensions can communicate with us.

1.  Psychic Ability — Some have retained or regained psychic ability and can either hear, see or feel messages directly.

2.  Using Tools — Cards, runes, crystal pendulums, crystal ball etc., offering a common language we can communicate with our guides through.

3.  Synchronicity — Our guides can create glitches in the matrix to prod us, nudge us in the right direction, warn us or awaken us.

4.  Number Sequences — A very clear and direct way for guides to communicate with us especially since the matrix operates in numbers. We see numbers everywhere, all day. Lots of opportunity for our tribe to drop us messages. Websites like sacredscribes and angelnumbers are excellent as quick go to checks for symbolism and meanings behind number sequences.

5.  Nature and Animals — Our guides can interact with us through nature and animals. Seeing animals appear in unusual places or at unusual times, or behave in a strange way is also a common language. The symbolism and meaning of many animals and much of nature has been passed down for millennia on Gaia, it is relatively easy to check the meanings.

6.  Gut Feelings — Powerful instinctive responses usually felt in the stomach or solar plexus area. Sometimes experienced as sudden headaches, nausea or dizziness. These emotional and physical responses can be prompted by the frequency alignment we share with our guides, they can zap them if you like, give us a jolt. What we do with that is up to us.

7.  Meditation — Authentic prayer (not rote) and dreamstate, open gateways to higher dimensions, activating our third eye and crown chakras, making lines of communication clearer and easier to navigate.

We can keep alert and aware for messages, guidance and communication from our guides, and we can also communicate back with them. Opening a dialogue with our guides and higher self is a wonderful thing to do.

Understandably this requires some deprogramming on our part. In a society where hearing voices is directly equated with being crazy, the elite’s manipulation and oppression of our thought processes limits our existential experience of being human. We can be hesitant to explore this.

We can use affirmations, mantras, meditation, ritual and focused intention to directly communicate with our higher dimension soul tribe. Here are some simple ways to open dialogue with your guides and higher self, encouraging alignment with manifestation and the general magical wonder of the universe.

Stress

I ask my guides to protect me from lower frequencies.

I am going to have a calm, (insert relevant adjective) day.

Healing

I ask my guides and higher self to protect and heal me.

I send love to my (insert injured body part, illness etc.).

Running the palm of your hand a couple of inches above the injury, whilst repeating this mantra, can help as well.

Guidance

I ask my guides and higher self to help me make the right choice, to show me the direction I should take.

Mantra: I am one with universal love frequency. 

Grounding

I move my spirit back into my body with the protection and love of my guides and higher self.

Mantra: I am connected to the multi verse, I am powerful and wise in my core, I am grounded back into Gaia.

Awakening

 I ask that all upgrades appropriate for me at this time, be activated under the protection and healing love light of my guides and higher self.

Mantra: I share love, I receive love, I am love.

 

The rule of three always applies, repeat each meditation or mantra three times, with meaning.

Breathwork, lengthening and deepening our breathing, as we say the words in our head, raises our vibrations at a cellular level, helping us tune into higher frequencies.

Breath into throat, chest, stomach. You will feel your heartbeat slow, blood pressure decrease, your body become calm, your ego will quieten and you will be able to hear and see from an energetic perspective.

It is good practise to connect to the energy of gratitude, to express humility with grace and love. Namaste.

These, and simple mantras like them, can be done anywhere, anytime, on the bus, before a meeting, before a family dinner (!), even during an interview or stressful experience. Breathe deep, three times, and say in your head…doing this as often or as little as you want or need.

Setting focused intentions as part of our morning routines, are a powerful tool for manifestation and spiritual growth. These intentions can also be revisited throughout the day to recentre and balance our energies.

We can also communicate directly with our body, sending love and healing using the power of words and intent, healing love frequency. Focusing our energetic intention on sending healing to our body nourishes it and draws the trinity of mind body soul more into balance as an energetic being.

A bedtime routine, like prayer, or cleansing our chakras, rebalancing our spiritual system, can be as simple as saying the mantra: I strengthen, balance and clear my energetic system of lower frequencies and vibrations, under the protection and guidance of my guides and higher self. Combined with breathwork and quiet meditation, we can learn to balance our own systems.

Like good friends, soul mates in our lives, our higher frequency soul tribe love us, know us, in the case of the higher self are us, and have our best interests at heart. Open up a dialogue with them, don’t be scared of what you may hear, see, feel in return. Trust that all will be communicated at a level we are prepared to handle.

We are part of a tribe, a pack, a crew of souls and we travel together across time and space, each taking their turn on the karmic wheel of life. Call to them, activate your third eye and recognise their messages. They are here for us, to love, heal, guide and protect us. Welcome them with open arms, open heart and open mind. Much love beautiful people.
