For several months now I have been asking the angels for guidance and clarity regarding my direction and how to create greater abundance and success in life. I’ve been meditating and reciting mantras but mostly feeling like I’m going over old ground and getting nowhere fast.
As the weeks went by with no apparent real improvement, I began to think my efforts and prayers were going unanswered. However, over the last couple of weeks I have been strangely drawn to find out more about and connect with the faery realm … Yes, that’s right, fairies! Now even though I love the countryside and being out in nature, I have never seen fairies or felt a strong connection to faery/elemental energy. I have now discovered that fairies, being closely connected to nature and the earth plane, can help you attract abundance and success as well as create more joy and fun in life, all of which are exactly what I need! I have now done a short meditation to clear away stagnant energy and blocks to manifesting that I held in my aura and could feel energy swirling around my knees and lower legs. What’s more amazing was that I could see tiny flecks of different coloured lights dancing around like fire flies in my aura!
In a further example of coincidence or synchronicity, for my birthday a few weeks ago one of my good friends gave me a Black Amethyst crystal. I was amazed to discover that this crystal helps ground spiritual energies in the physical world, clearing any blocks in the chakra system that may prevent spiritual energy flowing down to the root chakra. If spiritual energy cannot flow down to the root/base chakra, you will struggle to manifest in the physical plane.
So, it just goes to show that our prayers are being answered and we are being guided towards what we need even when we don’t realise it at the time. I would never have thought I would be connecting with fairies but I understand that I need their assistance at this time in my life. We just have to trust that our guides and higher self really do know best.
Asking for Guidance
I would definitely encourage you all to ask God or the Universe for whatever help you need, saying something along the following lines: “Thank you Angels for guiding me to the perfect job/home/relationship for me and for enabling me to clearly recognise the signs of guidance”. Say this a few times throughout each day. The key then is to be open to receiving and following the ideas that come to you. Remember that the solution may not be what you expect but it may be just what you need!
Guidance can come in various forms but here are some examples to look out for:-
- The same idea comes to you at least 3 times – it may be something mentioned by other people or you may keep seeing the same information on the internet, social media, in magazines and books etc.
- You are drawn to connect with someone who can help you.
- You are given a book by a friend with a message or some teaching you need.
- You are given a crystal whose energy you need.
Once you start following your guidance and have started on your new path or new project, you will feel a bit of a buzz about it. You will feel inspired and uplifted as your course of action resonates with the promptings of your soul and higher self.
