The Angels' Guidance
The voice of divine guidance always comes from a place of love. It will never lead you down a path of pain or chaos. The voice of divine guidance will ask you to follow your heart and to believe in your dreams and desires. Messages from the angels are always positive, helpful, healing, and supportive. The angels will always encourage you and provide you with the trust and confidence you need to follow your heart. In simple terms, the voice of divine guidance is always the voice of love.
When you hear the voice of your angels it sounds like this:
You are good enough right now.
Follow your heart.
Believe in yourself.
You can do anything if you believe.
You are never alone and you are so loved.
You are right where you are meant to be.
You deserve the best.
Be patient; all is well.
There is more than enough to go around.
Just notice how it feels when you read these words. Imagine if you listened to that voice more often. Your confidence and self-esteem would increase, you would trust yourself more, and you would believe in yourself so you could follow your heart and live your dreams. Isn't it worth taking the time out of your busy schedule to listen to your angels' guidance?
The Ego's Guidance
You are probably more used to following the guidance of your ego versus the angels. It is only natural that this would happen because your ego makes choices and takes action based on your past memories and the feelings that were experienced from those memories. For example, if you are looking to invest in a course that will guide you further down your spiritual path but you're tight in finances, your ego's voice might mirror what your mother used to say: “Don't waste your money on silly stuff like that!” Then fear sets in and you might hold yourself back from an opportunity.
Here are some sample questions from someone asking for guidance. Pay attention to the voice of the ego and notice how you feel after you read the response.
I just got a great idea about writing a book and I am curious what my next step is? Ego's response: Who do you think you are? You can't do that, you're not an expert.
I just met this new guy. Is he the right one for me? Ego's response: He might be like the rest. Be careful because you might get hurt.
I want to leave my job and start my own business. What should I do? Ego's response: What is everyone going to think? You should stay right where you are; it's safe.
I am so mad at my sister. How can I make peace with her? Ego's response: It's her fault. Wait till she apologizes.
I have been so stressed out at work. What can I do? Ego's response: Just remember, if you don't work hard you might not succeed.
Notice how the ego can be critical, judgmental, afraid, cautious, and blaming. Do you want this voice influencing your choices and decisions? If this voice feels familiar to you, choose to recognize it and then tune into a different channel so you can hear the voice of the angels.
Following Divine Guidance
The more you can practice discernment when listening to the voice of your ego versus the voice of your angels, the more you can trust yourself and the messages you are receiving. Building trust with the angels is like taking a journey back home to God where you can experience peace, ease, and grace.
Awareness is a wonderful gift. Once you realize your ego is controlling your thoughts and actions, you have the power to choose differently. Recognize it and then turn your attention to the angels so they can give you guidance and direction from a higher place of love.
