You're walking down the street. And you're listening to music on your iPod, walking your dog, thinking about what you should cook for dinner tonight, wondering if it's time to turn back. Your spirit guide whispers in your ear that you should move to the right so a bicyclist heading straight toward your back on a bicycle can easily ride around you. Do you hear that message?
You're eating dinner. And you're watching TV, your laptop is open as you look at your bank balances, you're considering if you should make a big purchase, while petting your cat, and trying to decide if you should eat dessert or start that diet today. Your spirit guide whispers in your ear that if you look to the jobs postings right now, the job you've been hoping for is now online. What about that message? Are you hearing that one?
These are practical, in the moment messages you might hear. Our spirit guides can be with us with daily helpful ideas as well as being partners in life with messages and inspiration that will help us evolve to our fullest potential in every area of life.
Our modern world is busy and full and most of us are multi-tasking as a regular way of living. Yet the messages of our spirit guides are swift and subtle. They are heard most easily in a quiet (or at least quieter) mind. Slowing down and doing one thing at a time with mindful attention is a great way to feel less stressed, actually accomplish more, and be able to hear these whisperings from spirit, in the moment, when the messages are most valuable.
If you think you have too much to do and can't get everything done unless you are multi-tasking, perhaps it's time to look at your choices and true values. Who is deciding to put all of these tasks on your to do list? Why?
Life can be a meditation when we simplify a bit. We are the only ones who can choose simplicity because the world is not going to be less stressful or offer less opportunities anytime soon. As we reduce our scope of vision to a narrower more thoughtful range, the valuable love, support and guidance of our spirit guides will be brighter and clearer. Our daily choices affect our ability to hear our spirit guides -- because believe me, they are always there talking to us!
