Messages may be sent from our Higher Self or from our Spiritual Guide and can help guide is in our life. John U.K., a mid-causal teacher, shared some pointers on receiving messages, inspiration, and ideas. He also shared ideas on how to allow the ideas and concepts to expand and become an insight.
First of all, your Spiritual Guide works through your Higher Self. Your Higher Self obviously knows what yourself wants and therefore can assist your Spiritual Guide in knowing what message and thought(s) to share.
These different types of messages and their energy frequencies can be shared with you as a thought, or a hunch, a dream, a meditation, or as a feeling. The message will be sent to you with the hope, anticipation, and/or expectation you will receive it, interpret the information, and use it to help you in your life.These are some of the different types of thoughts that may be used:
A thought of inspiration, where all at once things seem clear, is an intuitive thought or feeling. Thoughts which clarify and seem to provide answers that and are clear are intuitive thoughts. These are the strongest types of thoughts. They also are the least frequent.
Hunches or Feelings
The most common type of thought is the and perhaps the most difficult to understand are hunches or feelings. They are impressions and in order to validate the, you have to try them out. By doing so your experience will further your receptive nature in the future.
Open Mind Intuitive Thought
The open mind intuitive thought process is where you allow thoughts to come freely to your mind from outside spiritual sources.
Ponderings are thoughts that have no apparent answers but they allow you to explore and collect a vast array of information and to catch hold of different strings of ideas allowing you to wander to new concepts. Once an idea attracts your attention, the idea is not to closely focus on it but to allow it to generate further concepts and paths to new ideas and insights.
This is a technique that may be used when one cannot spare the amount of time required for a full meditation or if it would not be socially accepted to do so. The objective is to allow the mind to have its freedom within limits.
Testing Your Thoughts
How do you know if your thoughts are from "you" versus from your Spiritual resources? Often you won't know unless the thought came from completely "out of the blue" and has no context to other things you were thinking about. The important thing is learning to receive the messages and interpret the message. The more you do this, the more refined this skill becomes and the interpretation of the message may become almost immediate and in real time.
The more you set aside quiet time to ponder and/or day dream, you will be providing opportunities to fine tune your spiritual energies and abilities to receive and interpret the spiritual communication from your Higher Self and Spiritual Guide(s).
