How to Connect With Your Spiritual GuidanceBy Dr. Margaret Paul

Problems connecting with your spiritual guidance? Here's how!
Did you know that connecting with Spirit - with your personal spiritual guidance - is a natural process? We are all born with the ability to connect, but since this ability was rarely fostered as we were growing up, many of us have forgotten how. The saying, "Use it or lose it" applies here: If we don't use it, we don't support the neural pathways that make it easy for us to attain this connection.
The good news is that, with practice, you can always re-establish these neural pathways. It's all about your intention.
If you are having problems making the connection with your guidance, then you need to become more aware of your intent. When you have an intent to learn about and support what is both physically and emotionally loving to yourself and what is in your highest good, you will receive help from Spirit. Your intent to learn to love yourself physically and emotionally becomes an invitation to Spirit and opens your mind, heart, and soul to receiving Spirit.
In examining your intent, you might want to ask yourself the follow questions:
Am I reaching to Spirit to have control over getting love and avoiding pain, or to learn what it means to be loving to myself and to others?
Am I reaching to Spirit in the hopes of controlling the outcome of something, or to understand what is in my highest good?
Do I have an agenda, or am I in true surrender?
- Do I eat, get enough sleep, and exercise for my health and wellbeing, or to avoid pain?
Years ago, when I was questioning why human beings are on the planet, my guidance gave me this answer:
'You are on this planet to evolve your soul in your ability to love and to fully manifest the gifts you have been given. This is the soul's journey. Your soul, and everyone's soul, knows this, and if you open and look deep inside, you will remember that this is why you came here. You are here to learn more and more about loving, and it has to start with loving yourself."
If you believe you really are open to learning, ask yourself: do you want to learn purely to evolve as a loving human being, starting with yourself? Or, is there some other outcome you have in mind, such as getting more money, meeting the perfect partner, and so on? It is easy to trick ourselves when it comes to our intent. Our wounded self is a trickster and often masks as being open, when what is really happening is that we are trying to control something or avoid something, rather than learn about loving ourselves.
Your intent determines everything else that occurs for you. Connecting with Spirit is not a difficult thing to do, but if your intent is compromised by a desire to be in control, you may find it challenging to truly open to learning about loving yourself, emotionally, physically and every other way. Our automatic, programmed, unconscious choice is often to try to get love and avoid pain, in order to feel safe, yet it is our committed, conscious intent to learn about what is true and loving, that opens the door to spiritual connection.
Connecting with Spirit is about raising your frequency to the level of Spirit.
The main way of raising your frequency high enough to connect with guidance is by consciously choosing the intent to learn about loving yourself, with no other agenda attached.
Along with your intent to learn about loving yourself, you also need to keep the frequency of your body high, which means eating clean, fresh non-processed foods. Sugar, too much caffeine, alcohol, and drugs all lower your frequency, making spiritual connection difficult.
Living without your spiritual connection is a very painful way to live. Start today - practicing opening to learning about loving yourself, both emotionally and physically, and you will see that your life will soon improve dramatically!

How often is your focus on what another is thinking or doing? How often are your thoughts on how another should change, or what you want to say to another to get him or her to see things your way? Today, be aware of keeping your eyes on your own plate. Are you open or closed, loving or unloving, learning or protected, in surrender to Spirit or controlling? If your eyes are on another, your intent is to control.
