These are a collection of things about Guidance compiled into one place
Guidance is a very common term in spirituality but who or what is guidance? There are many thoughts on this which range from being very close to not close at all. All of these are based on our ability to sense and perceive the answers. The definition I find best suited is that our Guidance being the rest of us which didn’t and couldn’t enter into this three dimensional existence. We each are a group consciousness of our own created in the image of the Creative Consciousness. This may sound familiar, “we are made in his image” but not necessarily in the way some may think we are. God doesn’t have two arms and legs but rather we are a group consciousness patterned after the Creative Consciousness of which we are a part of.
Since we each are our own group we each have our own Guidance although it’s common to receive guidance from any other part of the Creative Consciousness as is called for or we ask for it.
Due to the conditions of our being on Earth working with the energy for our greater collective consciousness we still have Free Will. As part of this Guidance cannot and will not help or interfere in any way until we ask for help. Only then is Guidance allowed to help us and only to the extent allowed for by us or what is in the highest good of the Divine Plan.
What Guidance Won’t Say
The most widely held thoughts about Guidance is they’re a source of everything we want to know. This is true but only to the extent of our experience and understanding. This is worthy of examination. No one can conceive of anything beyond our experience or comprehension, in other words “we don’t know what we haven’t learned yet.” Guidance couldn’t explain an internal combustion engine to a caveman who hadn’t even figured out the wheel yet. Learning is a step by step process so Guidance will not and would not give us information about anything beyond our perception or we haven’t yet thought of. This may sound like Guidance is keeping secrets but in truth we learn best by experience and having gone through the process to figure it out. If Guidance just told us everything we wanted to know about it would diminish our thought processes and ability to learn from our lessons. At times we may even get some misleading or incomplete information on a subject which is designed to challenge us to look deeper. At other times we won’t be corrected in our misunderstandings and allowed to go on believing it to be true until we see the higher truth for ourselves.
Guidance loves us too much to cheat us out of our experiences and challenges of finding out for ourselves. That said, if we have an insight we can very often gain more detailed information about it from guidance as we probe a greater understanding of our insight. Even then we’re not just being given information, we’re going through the process of thinking it out using intuition receiving confirmation or we’re being asked to revisit our thinking.
The more we probe the unknown “mysteries” on the other side of the veil the more we understand how things really work so we can unlearn the misperceptions we’ve been taught were the truth. (this is also known as clearing filters)
If you play Chess with Guidance
Each time we journey here for a new expression of physical life we each have a basic purpose and plan of what we intend to accomplish. When the incarnation is over what is yet to be completed is placed on the list for the next incarnation. We also take part in larger plans which connect directly to our personal plan. When Divine consciousness develops a plan you’d better know it’s complete with every possible contingency covered in the fullest detail and know we’re part of the larger plan.
So why then would anyone not want to listen to guidance and allow them to assist us to pilot our lives knowing full well that our guidance knows the plan and can see around every corner before we even get there? This is a good question which deserves contemplation.
I think one concern is in letting go of what we believe is our control of our life. In truth the control we have is very different than what we think it is. We control our reality by how and what we think which includes staying out of drama and judgment of others while learning self-love and forgiveness. Learning these do more to change what happens in our lives than most would think. We also have control from our “Free Will” but maybe not as much as we would like past choices about what’s for lunch. We always have free will to stop for gas now at the last gas station for miles or do it later but this could have consequences we don’t want to experience. We’re preoccupied about planning for our retirement or just in paying the bills every month. Letting go is at the very least a “leap of faith” allowing guidance to suggest the direction which would serve our life’s path best. After all this is why we have guidance here in the first place. We’re not put here to “go it alone” but to find the rest of us and listen to the wise council.
When we’ve had the chance to get a quick look at part of a Divine plan it’s amazing in its complexity. These plans have been compared to a tapestry many times and correctly so. Pulling on a thread in one place will cause movement in other threads somewhere else. That is a good analogy of how a change in one event shifts potentials in others. To put this into context of daily life it would be like planning to be somewhere, we’ll say it’s an event at which unknowingly we’d meet someone we should meet and they decided not to be there. If that meeting was important to the life’s plan it would be rescheduled to a secondary contingency. The Divine plans are full of such secondary and back-up plans just in case we’re not in the flow with our plan in that moment.
Another way guidance will work to keep us on track is in giving us a reason to do something which isn’t the real reason but is one we can rationalize as a good idea. This has been seen so many times and is sometimes called “doing the right thing for the wrong reason,” guidance gave us a good reason (even if we didn’t know it was guidance) so we’d go alone with the program only to see later there really was another reason which we may not have gone along with even though it was in our highest good.
We can get to the other side of the river using the bridge or we can swim the river, the choice is ours to make. Guidance may have an entirely different plan we didn’t see and we won’t know about it unless we ask.
Guidance has an open door policy. It’s our door that’s open since they’re multidimensional and don’t have doors but we’re asked to be open at any time to serve as asked. This could be sending energy to an event or being awake to get an important phone call for help. This is the ultimate in being a “team” player. We are asked to become One and work together in all ways.
