Dissolving Boulders IV: The Importance of Back Up
by Rev. Rita Scheibeck
So far, in our discussions about "Dissolving Boulders" in the paths to our highest good, we've talked about affirmations, meditations, and gut feelings. This week is devoted to a question that I hear frequently in my readings for clients. Many people ask me "How do I know if what I'm feeling is truly wise spiritual guidance, or if it's just a selfish desire that I'm temporarily craving?" It's a tricky question, but usually answered easily when we can trust influences outside ourselves for back up confirmations.
Our gut feelings can often be nebulous or ambiguous at best. It's at this point of clearing our paths that we might want to seek out a second opinion.
We can often accomplish this with a trusted friend who has our best interests at heart. They're usually the ones who know us well enough to help us sort through the second guessing we fall into when trying to follow our internal guidance. Mentors and spiritual counselors may not fully know what's in our hearts or our past experiences, but they often have knowledge from a wide variety of resources, including holy texts, divine ideas, and metaphysical guidance. We can also consult a trusted author or book for insightful advice to reinforce what we ourselves already know. And don't forget that a good psychic or intuitive may be able to validate our gut feelings in a more mystical way.
So when we're concerned that our intuitions might lead us astray, it's a good idea to have back up guidance ready and waiting.
Affirmation: I now follow my internal feelings into the future I want to experience. I remember to use my affirmations, my meditations, and my available back up to confirm my divine guidance.
I now allow, acknowledge, accept and affirm that these things are so.
