Whether we’re facing challenges or searching for daily guidance in life, there are times when a shoutout from our the Universe could really come in handy!
Fortunately, we ALL have the power to access this guidance any time we want (heck yes!) and doing so is as simple as raising our vibration and moving into alignment with our highest self.
But before I lay out the steps, I want to share a quick truth with you.
I used to really shy away from things that talked about vibrations, alignment, or ANY of those phrases that I now embrace. If this is you, I ask that you stick with me, keep an open mind, and give these steps a try. Trust me, they’ll change your life!
7 SIMPLE STEPS FOR RECEIVING GUIDANCE WHENEVER YOU’RE IN NEED
Higher consciousness operates in higher frequencies, so it’s necessary for us to raise our frequency in order to “download” and process messages that we’re meant to receive.
Vibration simply refers to our energetic resonance and is defined by Merriam Webster as follows:
A characteristic emanation, aura, or spirit that infuses or vitalizes someone or something and that can be instinctively sensed or experienced.
So how exactly do we raise our vibration in order to receive guidance?
It’s easier than most people think and I’ve broken it down into 7 simple steps that will bring you serenity and clarity right away!
STEP 1: ASK FOR GUIDANCE
This one might sound really simple because it totally is!
We can’t receive what we haven’t yet asked for. We are powerful co creators of our reality and part of this process requires us to ask for what we need! Not only does this que the Universe to send the help that we’re looking for, it also forces us to become intentional about what we actually want. When we become intentional, we open ourselves up to see, hear, feel, smell (and more!) all the ways we can be guided to meet those needs!
STEP 2: SET A SAFE & SOLID FOUNDATION
As we ask for guidance, always set the intention for only guidance of the Highest Truth and Compassion to come through.
Just like the humans here, there are some “not good” energies and we only want to communicate with the high vibe ones. As you set your intention, ask for protection. This sets a good foundation for the guidance that will come through.
STEP 3: SLOW DOWN
You have to slow down in order for guidance to find you!
Some of us (me included!) can easily get caught up in the busy world around us. Even though guidance is always flowing to and through us, we might be rushing so much that we can’t see what’s right in front of our faces!
Take a deep breath, allow space to open within you, and then trust what you receive. Messages can intuitively come to as visions, something you hear, see, feel, think or know! Here’s a quick guide to what intuition is and is not so that you can identify what’s coming from your higher self vs. your ego:
STEP 4: TAKE ACTION
Taking action is all about surrender while keeping your ego out of the way.
When you’re being guided toward your highest good, it’s not uncommon for doubt (ego) to creep in. When this happens, I address it head on by asking, “What’s the worst that can happen?” You can always go back to what you’ve had before, so why not take that leap of faith?
When it comes to receiving guidance, the Universe will only show you the next step, not the whole picture. Once you take action, the next step will be revealed.
STEP 5: THANK THE UNIVERSE
Gratitude will change your entire life!
When you thank the Universe for what you’re wanting or needing help with, you’re affirming that you WILL receive that guidance (faith). When you do this in addition to the steps above, you’ll keep receiving more and more messages!
STEP 6: STEP OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY & ALLOW
Now that you’ve received guidance, acted on it, and thanked the Universe, step out of your own way and ALLOW things to happen.
Trust in Divine timing (the time when certain events are meant to take place for your highest good) and surrender to a plan far greater than yourself!
STEP 7: PLAY, HAVE FUN, AND WAIT FOR THE NEXT STEP!
Yay! Now it’s time to celebrate the limitless possibilities of this life!
Get out of your head and take time for self care and nourishment. Remember, we are still human and we must appreciate and care for this body! Thank the guidance you have received and come back to yourself by being in nature, playing, and trusting that all is taken care of.
No matter who you are or what’ you’re going through I want you to know that YOU CAN DO THIS.
We all possess strong intuitive abilities and we don’t have to look outside ourselves for guidance.
My goal is to teach you to look within for the answers and help you remember the truth of who you are and that we are all connected to a higher consciousness.
