Tapping in to Your Spirit Guide…
So, I’ve heard a lot about Spirit Guides. Sometimes they are angels and sometimes they are animals. Nevertheless, it boils down to spiritual intuition. Whether you feel it is your own intuition speaking to yourself or if you feel it is a person/spirit or an animal that empowers your Spirit Guide. I have found a lot of different material on doing this so I’m a little torn between the two opinions on Spirit Guides.
- Spirit Guides are your own intuition: In some ways, this seems very true. I feel like my gut is way more powerful than my own brain. I don’t really know if I feel that my Spirit Guide is actually a separate entity from myself. However, these meditations are quite powerful and they are long, depending on how quickly you can visualize/connect with the spirit side of things. When I meditate to perform a tarot reading, I am focusing my energy on absorbing either the other’s person energy or my own. I don’t really go too far onto the other side in which I have ever met a Spirit directly connected with me. Although, there is do doubt in my mind that this is possible and other people have experienced such things.
- Spirit Guides are separate entities from your own Spirit: In other ways, this makes sense to me. I do feel a part of the Universe, but I don’t feel that I am psychic or have any other connections with the Universe other than my own spirit. Thinking of something else in the background of my consciousness that is corralling and giving my advice through my life seems… comforting. I’d like to think it was maybe a part of me from a previous lifetime that is trying to tell me that everything is happening for a reason, but at the same time coincidently (like my guide very ironic…).
I will be trying some of these meditations over the course of this week. I would like to hear from anyone who has possibly went through this kind of indecision that has now decided on what they believe to be true, either intuition or a separate entity. Please share with me if you will, I would be most interested to hear different sides of the story.
Here are some of the references I have:
http://www.erinpavlina.com/blog/2006/11/connecting-with-spirit-guides/ This explains the inner intuition of Spirit Guides
http://malavikasuresh.wordpress.com/2011/03/24/how-to-meet-your-spirit-guides-through-meditation/ This is a meditation about meeting your actual separate entity Spirit Guide. However, you must know how to open your chakras. I would say this is an Intermediate meditation. If you have not learned how to open your Chakras, please visit this awesome meditation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1xwtA6C2DQ and take your time with it! It is quite a journey going through each of your unique Chakras and actually learning how to open them is rather difficult (at least it was for me!).
