“How come I can’t hear my guides?” I once had a client ask me that.
Guides are the ethereal helpers that support you and guide you while you are on earth. Everyone has them. The number that you have with you or that are connected to you at any given time depends on a number of things: what you do in this world (your soul’s work and/or your profession), what is currently going on in your life, and if you are asking for help– to name a few reasons this number varies from person to person and moment to moment.
I think my client thought her guides were going to be speaking to her like a friend who was sitting across from her would.
Let me tell you, it’s pretty rare for people to hear their guides that way. I mean that does happen from time to time. Especially if you are clairaudient (having the ability to perceive sounds or words from sources of the spirit world) you may get snippets of clear words of guidance from time to time. But for the most part your guides speak to you through the ways that you live your life. They communicate to you through the things that happen to you while you are living your life.
It’s sort of like they drop clues for you to discover all over the place. They use the voices of other people to communicate information and ideas to you. They will place objects of meaning, words of import, specific songs, or knowledge in your path. They don’t actually care if you know it was them or not. 🙂
If you are interested in knowing, it is absolutely possible to learn to discern when you are receiving messages from your own guides. I can tell the difference between when I am receiving information from my own second sight, my Highest Self, when it is my deceased grandfather or a friend who has passed, or when the information I receive has the energetic signature of one of my guides. I teach some of my private Intuition University students how to do this too. And I can tell you it’s not hard. You do it mostly just by paying attention.
But I want you to know that just because you can’t actually hear your guides speak—it does not mean they aren’t communicating with you and trying to guide you all the time. Especially if you are asking questions– they are there endeavoring to guide you toward your answers.
So don’t be discouraged if you don’t hear them like a conversation happening in your ear. No biggie. The important thing is not that you can tell when they are speaking to you or not, it is that you get the information that will guide your life in positive directions. 🙂
