Once upon a time in a land far away (better known as 2010) I created something called“Email Coaching with your Guide Team”.
Here’s how it worked: each Sunday, I channeled a message from my client’s Guide Team for them to take action on during the week. They’d correspond with me and let me know what happened as a result of that action.
Sounded good to me in theory. In practice, not so much.
What happened was I started getting emails from my clients asking “what do the guides think I should do about this?” or “what do my guides say I need to do now?”
Hmmm. That wasn’t how I envisioned it.
What happened was that I created a space (unintentionally) that fostered a dependence on whatever edict was handed down from the Guide team. Shoot. Once I saw that, I ended that program quickly because that is so NOT the way to work with these high vibrational beings.
They do not wish to foster dependence on their words for they are not the ones taking action here in the physical. You are. You must always be the one to make those choices and when you wait with bated breath for their next utterance, you are giving away your self-authority.
If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know I’m big on self-authority. Here’s what I wrote about it back in 2011:
Self-authority (as I understand it) means having the ability to discern what is for your highest good and acting on it.
For example, society’s mores say that you won’t get a good job without a college degree. Your parents think it, your friends think it but what if you don’t? What if you feel like it’s not something you want to pursue and decide to go your own way? To stand up to those who believe otherwise is using your own self-authority.
Self authority means making decisions and accepting the consequences of those decisions without blaming it on another. It means knowing that everything that comes your way, good, bad or neutral, is a result of decisions you’ve made. It means stepping out of the victim shoes and into your own powerful ones.
Spirit Guides are amazing beings of light but they are not there to tell you what to do. Whether that’s in your business, in your love life, in your inner thoughts, it all comes back to you.
Don’t outsource your authority to them – they won’t take it (and will always turn the question back to you) and you are putting yourself in a position of powerlessness. And that position will not serve you in the long run.
Co-Create with your Guides – that’s what they’re there for. Be in charge of your life and ask your trusted advisors (both in spirit and in human form!) for their input and suggestions. But it all comes down to YOU.
