Not sure if the information you are getting is really from a Spirit Guide? It’s good to be discerning, and while there’s nothing to fear, here’s four things Spirit Guides never do:
1.What they say is fear based
If you’re hearing negative comments, criticisms, downers, it’s not a spirit guide. Criticism, bad mouthing, fearful statements, these are not your Spirit guide, in fact they aren’t even Spirit at all. Most often it’s our fears coming to life. If the negative information comes from a reader purporting to be in touch with Guides, ask them to prove it by telling you something about a passed over loved one – after all, Spirit Guides are in spirit and will be able to prove it.
2. Spirit Guides interrupt daily routines.
If you have to change your life somehow in order to accommodate their presence, it’s not a spirit guide. Guides work WITH you and help. Their aim is your spiritual growth, not control.
3. They don’t go when told
Spirit is intelligent. They are here to help and guide. They will also back off if you need. If there is something that isn’t going away when asked, or it’s critical and not giving uplifting feelings, it’s not a spirit guide. Perhaps take some time to reflect on where the information is coming from as it will be much closer to home, and we all know what negative self talk feels like.
4. They order you around
Guides suggest, hint and …well…. guide. They never tell us what to do, tell our future or give advice. They honour our free will. If you’re experiencing something or someone telling you to do this or that, it’s not a spirit guide, and it’s not a spirit guide in a reading, either.
What is it then?
If it’s not a spirit guide, what is it? The good news is that it’s not an entity either. Not even some kind of “attachment”. Not even a demon. You know what it is mostly?
It is somebody’s thought form. Overthinking is like a runaway train. A fearful thought gets momentum and builds and builds. Fearful thought forms get fed by you thinking and then very soon it feels like a spirit. Guess who’s feeding it? You.
Part of being intuitive is also having a vivid imagination. There was a time when I felt really pursued when I was very convinced of the presence of negative energies and entities. But it turned out to be my deepest fears mixed up with an overactive imagination. Once I confronted those fears, they no longer had a hold on me.
What to do
Monitor the amount of screen time you have.
Go outside and walk.
Review your spiritual practice. Do you have a regular meditation? What keeps you grounded and stable and balanced because those things are going to really effect that runaway train, fear based thoughts. Practice basic grounding tools because you’re in charge and as attractive as it is to think it’s something spooky and outside yourself, it’s not.
Owning up to our own energy is one of the first steps in spiritual growth. We get to own the good and the not so good. So review your screen time, grab a free meditation, take some chill time to connect to the bigger, higher, lovely part of you.
And if that means shutting down the phone, or choosing Facebook feeds to support a higher vibe, rather than fear, make a decision and take a step to having a healthier, more positive energy field and you will feel the difference.
