Podcast #40: All that’s left is love
Hi everyone and welcome to the Practically Intuitive podcast. This is Lisa from PracticallyIntuitive.com – didja miss me? I skipped a week in there because my trusty assistant, Anni, was on vacation and she’s the one who makes my newsletters look beautiful. You don’t want the kind of newsletter my skills allow me to create. I may converse with Angels easily but messing around with HTML is not the same thing, as I learned early on.
Today’s topic actually came as a message from my own Guides and I wanted to share it with you all.
During sessions with my clients over the past month or so, their Guides were offering suggestions about creating a dialogue and opening up the channel of communications even deeper. One of these suggestions was to start a journal where the only thing in there was letters to the person’s Guides and the responses from the Guides back.
It occurred to me that perhaps I should also take this advice. Even though I can easily chat with my Guides in my head, there’s something about the written word that makes it more concrete, more solid. So, I bought a pretty little book and set about writing each day. It took maybe five minutes or so and I found a lot of comfort in their words.
One of the things I wrote them about early on was my dog Max’s declining health. He’s 16 and has been going downhill for a bit and now that I was home all day with him, I could see it even more. My husband has been in a wee bit o’denial about it but I’ve known that he wasn’t going to be with us much longer. Even though I had Max before I got married, he quickly became my husband’s buddy and they were very, very close. (Hence, the denial. I got that.)
The feelings of helplessness as I watched Max struggle to make his way outside was gut-wrenching to me. As an empath, I am particularly sensitive to animals and was internalizing what I perceived Max felt.
So, I wrote to my Guides and asked their help in knowing what needed to be done. They assured me that Max was okay for now and that he would let us know what he needed. They also told me that I was acting out of my own pain of impending loss and not to get caught up in putting that on the dog.
I found solace in their words that Max would let us know what he needed when it was time. Whenever I whipped myself into a frenzy over his difficulties eating or breathing, I’d hear their voice saying, “Trust that he will tell you when it’s time”. I also had to trust that my husband would recognize that time as well.
And so, this past Thursday, Max let me know in no uncertain terms that it was time. He couldn’t walk on his back legs and wouldn’t eat. I knew my husband couldn’t deny this either and I was right.
So, with heavy heavy hearts, we took our beloved Max to the vets to help him to the Rainbow bridge. It was incredibly difficult but I felt the presence of my Guides and they helped me be strong and do what was needed.
When I wrote to them in my journal the next day, thanking them for their love and support, their response was this:
“You’re welcome. All is love – we come into the world as love and we leave the world that way too. You will be okay. Lessons, heartbreak, heartache, busting open. Kids and pets do that to you. All that’s left is love. We love you and are right here with you.”
This is just one way our team of Spirit Guides supports us. I found so much solace and comfort in their words at a particularly difficult time. When you’re in close contact with them, it’s just that easy to reach out (as I did) and ask for that comfort. It’s given unconditionally. You can count on it to help you through the good times and the less than good times. You can also count on them being honest with you and guiding you to see what you might not want to see. I didn’t realize it was my own pain of losing him that was causing me to go into his energy so strongly. When I was told to step back and trust that he’d tell me, I did. Because when you listen to guidance that’s given in unconditional love and is for your highest good, it’s easy to follow it.
Max will always, always live in my heart. And I am beyond thankful for the wonderfully clear connection to my team of Guides who always support me in every situation. It’s a blessing to have such a thing as I navigate life down here in the physical.
Your guides will do the same for you. It’s just a matter of asking for it and then being open to receive it. If you want to know how to do it, schedule a 30 minute session with me and learn how. You never know when you’ll need it.
Thanks for listening – this is Lisa from PracticallyIntuitive.com. Enjoy your week!
