I felt the need to post this as I feel that we all want to connect more with our guides and angels at present. So to start with, I wanted to share with you a youtube video called a Guided Meditation Meeting Your Spirit Guide. Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWcBJLyZdtw I found this meditation to be really useful and I still use it now.
I know that a number of people would like to communicate with their guides as they see psychics do, however there are a number of ways to hear your guides, not just by being clairvoyant (vision). There are the other 'clairs' which are; Clairaudience (hearing/listening), Clairsentience (feeling/touching), Clairalience (smelling), Claircognizance (knowing) and Claigustance (tasting).
The best way overall, in my view, is just connecting with yourself and listening or feeling what your intuition is telling you. Practice how things make you feel. Even though I am clairaudient and clairsentient, so I hear and feel my guides clearly, I always check in with how I feel about something. Does it feel good or bad? For example, say you are offered two jobs and both look the same on paper, how do you choose? See how they make you feel! One should make you feel better than the other and that is your intuition letting you know which is the better choice. I normally feel 'the feeling' in my stomach, but everyone's different and you need to find ways of feeling and listening to your own intuition.
I will give you an example of how I should have used my intuition last week! I normally have a massage every couple of weeks, but my regular masseuse was unavailable, so I decided to try a new place. The website felt good, so I booked a massage and off I went. However, when I got there the place was locked, as you have to ring a bell before you can go in, no-one answered me for ages. My intuition told me to leave then, but I really wanted a massage! Finally, someone answered and then I was kept waiting for 20mins! I then went into the massage room and it was not the cleanest of places and my intuition was screaming at me by this point for me to say no thank you and go. I still continued and the lady that did the massage was awful, it was like she had not been trained at all. I couldn't stand it any longer and 10mins into the massage I asked to leave and offered to pay for the 10mins I had received.
I did ask my guides why the website had felt good at the time of booking, as I didn't understand that part. They said it was a test I had set myself to see if I could actually speak my truth in a situation in which I felt uncomfortable, as I do not like hurting people's feelings! I have been doing a lot of clearing on my throat chakra recently, so all this made sense. Plus, this is a great example to myself and others, always trust your intuition!!
