Don’t give the power to co-create your world away to ANYone – not even your Guides in Spirit! I show you how to work with them as a team in today’s podcast.
Podcast #34 Give up enchantment and go for empowerment!
Hi and welcome back to the weekly Practically Intuitive podcast. I’m your host, Lisa Wechtenhiser, and as always, I’m glad you’re listening in. Each week, in these short little podcasts, I talk about lots of things related to intuition, how to work more closely with your Guides in Spirit, and much more. My focus is always on how to take the information and bring it down to use in your life. What’s the point, otherwise, right?
Today’s topic popped through during a session with one of my clients. I was sharing with her that many people I talk with see their Guides as separate and outside themselves when really, they’re a part of you on a soul level. When we truly learn that we co-create our reality along with our ego, higher soul-self and our Guides, we move from enchantment to empowerment.
What do I mean by moving from enchantment to empowerment?
When I first started out doing this work, I offered a coaching program where I brought through wisdom and steps from Guides in Spirit and assisted my clients in putting those steps into action.
Sounds good or so I thought.
Soon enough, I got hip to the fact that offering the guidance in this particular way created a dependence on “what the guides said” about this or that. I saw how easy it was to give up personal power in favor of what the Guides had to share and I actually saw my clients become dis-empowered by their growing need for validation and advice.
That was not what I had in mind at all. And so I stopped offering that kind of service. I got wise to the fact that when we look at Guides as separate from our own self, then it creates a space of disempowerment. The whole point of learning to work with your Guides is to EMpower yourself to make choices more aligned with your soul path. Not to have some disembodied entity up in the sky tell you what the best decision is for you.
I’m not busting on those who have done this with their Guides. I’m pretty sure I was like this at some point as well because I didn’t quite understand how everything works together. If this is you, take heart. I’m going to show you how to move from being enchanted with your friends from the other side to co-creating your life with them on your team.
First: Accept that free will reigns supreme. Your Guides can not and will not tell you what to do. They can give options, suggestions and shed light on what’s going on but what actions you take must be your own. That’s part of the empowerment piece. They suggest, you decide based on all available information. You decide. Not them. You.
Second: They don’t have all the answers to the questions of the Universe. They do have a perspective we don’t given that they’ve been here on earth and understand what the limitations of a physical body mean when doing the work of your soul. That doesn’t mean that their answers are the be-all, end-all of discussion. They are part of the discussion but not the whole discussion. Your ego has a say, your higher self has a say and your Guides do. That’s how a team works.
Third: They are your equals on a soul level. We are all equals on a soul level. No need to bow before them or hold them in such high regard that you defer to them at all times.
They have expressly said in reading after reading to my clients, “We are walking right alongside of you and are your partners. We co-create together. Don’t put us on a pedestal.”
Yes, their perspective is different and yes, they work with us to help us find our soul purpose. That’s no different, really, than your best and most loved friend who wants you to be the very best you can be and helps you get there. Would you immediately do every single thing your best friend said to do? Even if you know they want the best for you, you’d still take it into consideration and then do what you feel is best. Same thing with your Guides.
Let go of the notion that these beings are so far above you. They are right inside you, even if you can’t see / hear / feel them. They’re there and always available to you as a source of guidance and wisdom. Step into your own power and work with them as equals.
I love my own Guides and so enjoy talking to yours when you come for a session. So much wisdom comes through that’s meant just for you by the ones who know you in a very deep way. Your Guides offer you an enormous amount of support and love to do your work here.
If you’re not in contact with your Guides, schedule a session with me. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I am rockstar at doing that. I’ll bring them through for guidance and find out how you can contact them on your own – whenever you want. All the sessions are recorded so you don’t need to take notes or try to remember everything that was said. Just show up with your clear intention and we’ll go from there!
That’s all for this week – please let me know if you have an idea for a future podcast. I’d love to hear from you. And if you’re listening to this through iTunes and want to share your thoughts there on the podcast, you’d make this girl mighty happy!
This is Lisa from Practically Intuitive – have a wonderful week! Bye for now.
