Receiving Spiritual Guidance: When your Spirit Guides or Inner Guidance isn’t Giving You the Answers You Seek

Do you feel like sometimes you want your spiritual guides and teachers to share more, give more clear advice and show up in a more concrete way? Do you find yourself sitting and asking for support and then feel like maybe you  aren’t connected at all? Have you had some significant spiritual experiences, yet are feeling like you are having a dry spell and not getting the guidance and support you are looking for?

Something that people often come to me with is that they are seeking so much, working so hard and asking over and over for guidance and not getting ‘clear answers’. 

There seems to be a disconnect from the space of open connection, having some significant experiences and yet feeling like the messages one gets from guides or Source simply aren’t loud enough, clear enough or strong enough. 

Yet, on looking more closely, usually these people are very guided. 

It seems there are a few things at play here: 

  • Your guides don’t want to give you all the answers all the time. They want you to have free will, your own process and choose based on your values and creative life force, not just being guided. 
  • When we work with only a vertical plane (you to the guide) it is coming through energetically and there isn’t a need for translation as there would be with someone sitting in front of you. No pull on that horizontal plane (you translating the energy for another)? Not as concrete information. It’s almost always easier to receive for someone else instead of yourself. 
  • Guides will transition out of communication as you go through other important life and energetic shifts. You might be reconnected or you might connect to a different primary guide later. 
  • You are probably getting a lot of information and it is subtle. It actually becomes more subtle over time. This requires more trust, more patience and deeper listening. Of course your guides want you to develop this!
  • Do the things that you have already been guided to do. If you ask for a bunch of advice from someone and never take it, how long do you think they will keep giving you advice? Sometimes the guidance we receive feels too big and it takes a while to fully align to it. Keep taking those small steps.  

What I want you to get from this is to stop questioning and worrying so much. You’re Not Alone. You are guided. 

But, what this also means is that it is important to stay connected:

  • Offer gratitude even when you get nothing. That opens the flow more than anything. You aren’t coming from a needy, less than space but ‘in right relationship’. 
  • Do your practices. This means energetic clearing, cultivation and connection practices, prayer, gratitude, making offerings and sitting in silence not asking for anything. 
  • Invite others into your process to see if you get more for them. 
  • Be patient. Be kind to yourself. Listen deeply and open your heart. 
  • Align to your values and create based on those. Do your work and be willing to not know. That’s part of the fun of being human isn’t it? Take aligned action again and again to enter the stream of guidance. 

Guidance can take the form of something that you don’t expect. A person arrives. A book pops out at you. A teacher emerges. You are invited to an event or place. Energy slowly integrates into your being.

Even something challenging might be just the opening you need to find healing, growth and evolution. THAT is what this work is about, not just knowing everything all of the time. 

I support people to develop consistent and effective connection to inner guidance and their spiritual team.

FREE – Alchemized Empath Series

This series is a discussion about what it means to be an empath, stages of development and awareness, the healing journey and how to live as an empowered empath. A lot of that requires an awareness of the energy behind our experiences and how to work with it in an intelligent way. When we Alchemize our powerful feelings, we gain the ability to be present and aware of the world as powerful beings and incredibly intuitive and nurturing healers and guides.

You will receive a new video straight to your inbox every other day. If you miss one or signed up after the start date, prior videos will be just under the newest one. I kept these videos short and to the point so that you can keep up with the materials. I know we all have a lot going on right now.

By signing up for this series  you will also have access to 2 live webinars: Empath Misconception and Elemental Alchemy.

Here are release dates and topics of the video series:

JULY 29: Video 1 of Alchemized Empath Series: Phases of the Empath

This discussion goes into the different growth stages of the empath and how some people remain stuck in unconscious patterns while others rise to an empowered life of service and what you can be doing to thrive as an empath and sensitive person.

JULY 31: VIDEO 2: Awareness, Consciousness and Shutting Down

This video explains how and why empaths and sensitives shut down and why this is important. This video will discuss how we can connect to a higher awareness around our gifts and sensitivities and what we are doing instead of shutting down, numbing out or running away.

AUG 2: VIDEO 3: Poisoning the Empath: Repression, Judgement and Shame

Over time, repressed, unrepresented, unmoved emotions build up in the body and the field of the person. The sensitivity does not go away but it is masked and shut down.

Stories about what it means to feel these emotions are created and fed, shame is felt, more shut down happens and one often tries to cope in any way possible which in the long run simply does not work. In fact, this often leads to illness, depression and overwhelm.

AUG 4th: VIDEO 4: Emotional Contagion and the Empath

Most empaths when they are suffering are being affected by emotional contagion.

In this video I explain how emotional energy is being released by others and resonating with, attaching to and effecting the empath.

Thurs Aug 6th at 12pm pst: Webinar: Empath Misconception:

The misconceptions about being an empath that I am ready to tear apart so that we can create from a new, empowered place.

The energetic realities behind what we are experiencing.

The tools I have used for myself and my clients to go from overwhelmed and ‘too sensitive’ to a mastery of these abilities so that we can use them in our life and work in an effective way.

Thurs Aug 13 at 12pm pst: Webinar: Elemental Alchemy: This webinar will be about developing a working understanding of the 5 Element theory and it’s relationship to the emotions and your core values and how to use the 5 elements to do deep inner work in a way that is not about going into the story and retraumatizing but on the energetic level for more freedom.
