As a Transformational Healer, I work with many intuitive clients. One question I hear often is, “How do I know which thoughts are mine, and which ones are from an external source? How do I know which voices to listen to?”
We are all intuitive beings…some more plugged-in than others. But even for those who may not recognize their abilities, we have all experienced a time when a voice told us to take a different way to work, or to sign-up for a workshop, to call a friend or loved one, or even what to eat. Sometimes we listen, and sometimes we ignore the messages.
How many times has the outcome of not listening come back to bite us, and we say to ourselves, “I should have listened!”
Rather than turning our disappointment inward, these are opportunities to begin trusting all of the intuitive messages we receive all day long. So how can you tell if the messages are coming from your own mind, or from energies trying to communicate with you?
Here are three ways to know when the Spirit world is trying to communicate with you:
Only Loving Thoughts Come From Beyond.
Messages from beyond are pure and loving, and for your highest good. If you ever hear a voice tell you to do something and it has any negativity or harm towards you or others mixed in – this thought is not coming from the Spirit world, but from your own thoughts.
Spirit Communicates in Simple Terms.
When you hear a voice that is not your own, it usually comes in a word, a phrase, a symbol, or vision. This is unlike how we speak to ourselves where the chatter can be an entire conversation happening inside our minds.
Start Paying Attention.
Lastly, and most importantly, start to feel with your sixth sense. If you are hearing a voice that feels different than your own – trust it! We often deny or don’t want to believe that we are being guided by something greater than ourselves. When you receive a message, sit with it, and feel it rather than think it to death. When the voices and messages feel strong, and are pulling you in a certain direction, it is most likely coming from the energies that surround and protect you.
We are all being guided by energies that serve to love and protect us. Start becoming aware of the voices you hear, and trust that what you are hearing and feeling is real. When you do—miracles will become a daily occurrence for you.
