What Spiritual Level Are You On? Speaking With Your Spirit Guides

The universe was on fire this week!

Blue moon.

Deja vu.

Instant manifestations.

Golden opportunities.

Secrets.

Passion.

Connection.

Permanent detachment.

Hearing and smelling things with hyper-acuity.

It was as if everyone was ready for a big shift but they needed to prove some things to themselves before they were ready to move on.  It wasn’t handed to anyone.  They had the opening but they had to do the work.

The universe gave us all gaps – opportunities, chances – to step up to that plate and hit the ball out of the park.

It was so obvious to me that “here was my chance” that I felt like the entire opportunity was orchestrated, and my spiritual team was standing there next to me with their arms out saying,”Here you go.”

I had to stop myself from standing there with my mouth wide open and pausing for a few beats just to appreciate the moment.  It was so beautiful.  Instead, I had to jump right in and do the work before me.  The line was drawn, the boundary was set, and I directly expressed what I would no longer tolerate.  Done.

This is a time for letting go of the old to make room for the new.

What new alliances might be forming and on their way to make your life so much happier and more interesting?

Spiritual Teachers and Students…Who Are You Drawn To?

Last week I was reading about Life Between Lives and many of you encouraged me to move on to Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives by Michael Newton.

Strangely, I felt the impulse to start reading in the middle of the book.  As I did, one of the first things that I saw was a chart explaining “levels” of soul growth.

I always “feel that one out”, don’t you?  Certain people feel like teachers to me and other people feel more like students, at least in one area.

I get drawn to some to learn, and they feel so very far ahead of me on the curve.  If they have websites, blogs, or videos, I will spend some time in their energy.  Sometimes I am called to spend a few minutes and leave, while other times I may stay with them for months or years until I move on to something else.

It is almost like taking college courses with different professors.

In the case of the students, these are people who come to me seeking answers to their questions.  Sometimes the answers they have received before were given with kindness and sugar coating, so much so that they miss the point and aren’t helped.   If they are willing to hear, which they almost always are, then they get a result.

While reading Journey Of Souls, I started to see my fellow students of spirituality and connection with Spirit in a new light.

With my personal friends, sometimes they whiz right by me and become a teacher, and they do it so quickly I am astonished and can only appreciate them and their amazing growth.  In my mind I see it like they flew into the clouds and I am on the ground waving wildly at them and shouting,”GOOD LUCK!”

With my online spiritual colleagues, they have blogs and most offer some form of readings or courses.  They are somewhere in the range of my experience.  We usually at least have one thing in common, like a general philosophy.

As we get to know each other and become friends or friendly, they teach me and I teach them – there is a great back and forth.  It’s almost like a support group.

We can come to each other with problems or stuck areas, we can ask if anyone else feels the shifts in the energy that day and what do we make of it, that kind of thing.  These are probably members of my soul group, or an outer band of souls which are called clusters in the book – no matter, there is obviously an intended association.

Soul Levels?

In Journey Of Souls I looked at the diagram of the levels of souls and I asked my guides,”Where am I on this chart?  I can see I am a Beginner here, but Intermediate here…if this chart was a real representation of how things actually are, where overall am I?”

And I got an answer.

As I kept reading the book, I started to put some things together.  It never crossed my mind that people could be Spirit Guides and continue to incarnate.

The book indicates there are different levels of Spirit Guides, some more experienced than others.  Some are like “guides in training.”  It makes sense, I just never spent any energy thinking about how that might work.  I’ve spent very little time reading books on the subject; I’ve done my learning mostly through practice.  I think that’s served me because I haven’t put too many “ideas in my head” about how things might be or are “supposed” to be.  I experience each guide as…different.

So there’s a healthy amount of skepticism anytime I read someone else’s opinion about anything spiritual or mystical.

As I was reading, it occurred to me that…I practice teach.  I do it through the blog.  I did it when I was doing readings.  I’ve done it my whole life.  Even when I was a kid, I was the one the other kids came to with their problems, seeking answers.  I’m not sure how much insight another nine year old can provide, but by and large I did a lot of reading, I asked a lot of questions, and I mostly did know the answers or could find them out.

I wonder, if eventually you may be suited to being a spirit guide, do you practice here on Earth first?

I thought about my spiritual teachers and how one in particular was exactly like a spirit guide to me.

Journey of Souls mentions that some souls are cut out for teaching and some souls are not – and never mind, because there are other things they can do.

Moving energy was also mentioned.  I realized that even though I have never learned Reiki or any of the other healing arts, for the past year I’ve been practicing moving energy around with my mind and seeing actual results in the physical world.  I wonder also if this is some kind of unconscious practice?  I didn’t set out to do this one day on purpose.  It felt like it came out of nowhere.  Again, I wonder what I am practicing for?

If I step back and view all of the Roles I am playing right now, all the Schools I am in, all the Training I am getting – it’s no wonder I wake up tired!  It’s a lot.

Hearing From My Spirit Guides

As I was standing in front of the mirror brushing my teeth, I was still having a dialogue with myself about some of the ideas in Journey Of Souls.  I was marveling at my recent golden opportunity to move myself forward and the timing and synchronicity of it all.  I asked myself,”How did I get here?”

Clear as bell I heard,”With a lot of help!”

I burst out laughing.

That is one way to know you are in communication with your guide team, I guess (if you ever doubted it) – you have an immediate physical reaction!

Have you had any golden opportunities these past few weeks?
