Welcome to spirited straight talk the podcast to help you thrive with the help of spirit. I'm Deb Shepard, psychic medium spiritual teacher and author. Each week, I bring new insights to help you heal from loss, connect with spirit and turn setbacks and to triumphs. So let's get started. One of the things that I know that's important is people wanna know, do I have guides? Are they around? How do I know they're there for me? I use my guides on a regular basis, especially if I'm gonna go teach recently when I was going, okay, we're gonna teach this class what's next. And when I sit and meditate on it, I start getting all this information is what we call a download.

1 (49s):
And what's exciting is when I go to the class and say, this is my feeling, this is what I got. I will get so many people responding with head shakes. Yes. I've been feeling that that resonates with me and it validates what they're going through. We don't always recognize how often our guides are talking to us, but they're there all the time. It's just recognizing the difference between our own brain and what information is coming in to help us navigate our world. They're our compass. It's just whether we listen to them or not. So my encouragement is always just to, to trust and write down and begin to embrace these emotions, feelings, and these words that we're getting.

1 (1m 32s):
And

2 (1m 32s):
This was, this was our top episode of all time on spirited, straight talk, connecting with your guides.

1 (1m 40s):
So people are wanting to know how do I do this? Even when you know, you're not supposed to do something, the other part of it is people will go, well, I think I'm getting this. I'm like, yeah, but I don't always listen. So you may be getting information from your guides, but you just don't wanna hear it. And they don't get upset or disappointed. What they do is they just keep on keeping on trying to give you the information so that eventually you'll go. Okay. Got it. I'll do it. Thank you very much. Hope

2 (2m 11s):
You enjoy this episode.

0 (2m 17s):
Hey,

3 (2m 18s):
We're back Dana and Deb. Hi. So the topic today is one that I am, it's close to my heart because I know that there's times in my life that I've gone through, it's really hard times and you feel really alone and doing this work over the years, I have come to know that we're not alone. It's important for people to know, especially when they feel like the world is against them and they don't have any support and they feel like they're being judged or abandoned. And I know for me, when I started on this path, I had a great support system and I've been blessed to be able to work with those that we can't see those supporters that we can't see. Yeah. We have a team of a team on the other side, basically your team within the universe yeah.

3 (3m 1s):
That are dedicated towards helping us. And when we first try to put our head around it, it can be a little bit complicated, but all religions and all faiths over the years always believe that there was more than just the human species helping us out. And whether you believe it or not, people have actually leaned on those belief systems to help them through, you know, challenging times and also find the gratitude when they're helped. So I know when I first started doing this or I had to go into really understanding who was there and what was important and what I shared today in my belief system, I want people to know that it's my interpretation.

3 (3m 42s):
It doesn't have to be yours. If you believe differently, or you have a different name for things use what works for you. I don't think any of us in my profession are a hundred percent, right. We're not supposed to be just like when we refer to universe or God or source or whatever, or divine spirit, whatever you call it, it is the same thing. Right? Right. Absolutely. And so it's, it's learning these things, giving you my interpretation and then taking what you like. And like every, all of our podcasts, all my teaching, all my readings, I say the same thing that I have a perspective, but use what works for you.

3 (4m 23s):
Most of all. So the same thing like this, what resonates, what resonates as we say. Yeah. The one thing I, I'm not in agreement with, with a lot of people thinking a loved one is their relative is their guide guides. And I do believe your loved ones come around. It can give you that little nudge or that feeling. Absolutely. But they're not here to intertwine or, and, and influence your free will. Well, when you talk about that and, and I think this probably rings true for a lot of people. When you talk about that, I always go to, I don't know if my loved ones that have crossed over are really ascended enough or enlightened enough to give me advice.

3 (5m 5s):
Right. Even, you know, if they left earth and they were at the place where they left earth, I don't know if they can they're that. And they do change when they cross over. So the things they believed or the things they did, they are different. But I believe that we come here to learn and there are souls that are much more advanced. What I sense is that before we incarnate here, and if you don't believe in reincarnation, take that out of the, the talk here today. But whatever, again, works with you, whether it's one lifetime and multiple lifetimes, but I believe we come down here to learn to the earth plan. And we work through who we wanna learn with their soul groups and, and what our intention is.

3 (5m 45s):
But then we also have our teachers and our guides to help us to stay on track as much as possible or know that we're not alone. And so those souls better, highly evolved will then help guide us at the time that, you know, we're asking for it and they can't intervene. You know, they can't take away our free will. They're just there to kind of give us that other nudge about what's happening and put things in front of us. That's what I was gonna say. Do you think they put things in our path to recognize them? Or I think a lot of people ignore, oh yeah. Those things I do, but I do this for a living. That's true. I, I do this for a living. I'm like, yeah, I hear you. I'm not ready to go there.

3 (6m 25s):
Not ready to do it. So you don't have to do it. You don't gonna fail. They're there to give you multiple opportunities to see something. I will give you a couple stories about this, but they're actually there to help you. And there are different levels of the, the afterlife of souls and angels and ascended masters that are able to help us. And I remember one time this woman told me I have 10 guide, spirit guides. I go, oh, you must be a lot of work. So, you know, we have this idea of how many guys we need and things like that. And, and for me, some people feel that there are this profession that they've had one guide throughout their entire lifetime. And for me, I feel like I've had multiple teachers or guides through the process.

3 (7m 8s):
I look at being in school. And so you have different, you knows of levels that are working with you. And as you work through your things, you get a higher level of a, a master, someone like that that has more information to help give you what you need until. So is you build your skill, right? At working with the other side, you have different guides that come work with you. That's what I have experienced. But I also don't believe that, you know, everyone has to believe that. And as we talked about all religions have their saints, their spiritual helpers, those that, you know, that even believe in Jesus or Buddha or Muhammad, all of those souls can be very similar. Whatever you believe in that is that master or master to, to guide us or to help us angel Michael all.

3 (7m 55s):
And so our souls are here to, you know, learn, to get through our fear, learn to be an, to have it authentic life, and also to really learn unconditional love, to really understand that. And those are the things that we're all working on in order to ascend. And these spirits guides in the other realm have done that. So when you talk about unconditional love yeah. And that's like the ultimate thing we're here to learn. Right. Right. And it's one of the hardest things I know that's been a, a big lesson for me. So people think unconditional love is loving someone no matter what. And I've had some people say, oh, it's like a dog, which is really true.

3 (8m 38s):
You know, dogs are really unconditional for sure. But what I believe is that it's learning to be authentic to our soul and receive love the only way they can give it. And what happens is if we don't feel that love and support that we, we believe that we need, we get angry or upset. We feel abandoned. And then we change who we are for people to like us. So that becomes a conditional love versus an unconditional love. So in my perspective is what I'm judged and abandoned. My life lesson is to not change who I am and realize that's all they're capable of.

3 (9m 18s):
They're only capable of judging me and abandon me. They can't change or don't have a desire to change, which has recently happened. Yes. So that big lesson is we feel that if other people love us, we must be doing the right thing. And so we get into this turmoil of the rejection of I'm not good enough. So I have to do these other things to be able to receive love. And really it's like finding your own path. So, and I know this is you. Maybe you're gonna address this, but so these patterns repeat and repeat and repeat and repeat, is it because we ignore them? Or is it because they're really trying to hammer it home?

3 (9m 58s):
I feel like for me, I'm, it's always learning to the next level. Like I, I compare it to math. You know, you learn to write your numbers, you learn addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, algebra, you numbers go on for trigonometry, which I will never understand. I don't understand addition. So it's, it's taking that next level of understanding of what we're here to learn. And so we keep getting bigger teachers and bigger opportunities to learn that lesson. And to me, that's helping us move forward to enlightenment. It's just difficult cuz it's Earth's journey. So enlightenment does that mean we then become, we can. So once we reach that real true understanding, then we ascend correct.

3 (10m 41s):
And don't have to come back here to keep repeating those lessons, the same thing over and people go, well, I don't wanna come back here. I'm like, it's about learning and you don't have to. I think there's a ways to learn on the other side, I always call it, you know, there's another school system. We don't stop learning. So even those that are ascended continue on that progression of learning more. And that's cuz we're, we're all seekers, humans wanna know more. We wanna know knowledge we souls want to. Right? Yeah, absolutely. So as a soul, we continue to grow. We just get intertwined in our own drama or life experiences. And sometimes can't step back and look and go, oh, this is my pattern. And this is what I'm learning and how do I change the way it looks?

3 (11m 23s):
So that's cool, but we're not doing it alone. So let's say you've had support systems through your life, but those support systems no longer resonate or work for. You always know that the spiritual realm, the universe, however you wanna, you know, say it, you still have them there helping you in opening doors and opportunities. Whether it's a song, whether it's someone says something, a movie that aha that we get to animal spirit guides, animal, spirit, guides, all those things are there to give you attention. And I know when I teach, it's slowing this down, pay attention, see what the signs are, cuz most of us are just rushing through life. And we can't hear, even though you may be begging, praying, pleading whatever.

3 (12m 6s):
But if you can't stop and listen, you can't hear them or feel them or understand them. And most of us are in our past or we're worried about our future instead of being present. And that's our, our guys communicate with us is when we're present. Okay. And you had a visit last night. I did not. It was, yeah, it was yesterday and it was really cool. This is the first time I've experienced it this way. I do feel that my guides communicate with me all the time. Right. I may not say, oh, my guides told me this, but I might say, this is what I'm getting, right. Or this is what I got or this is how we should do this.

3 (12m 46s):
And maybe I should give them more credit. You should. I should grateful. Yeah. And David gets her information like, because you're a marketing guru. I get it. Well, I don't, I don't feel that way. Basically. You get that information. That's not for me, that's my guides are gonna be working differently. So if you're an engineer or you're, you know, you're a farmer or a teacher, you're gonna get your guides differently because you're doing different work. And I think for me, I just have a clear sense of knowing and I get this very strong. This is the way we should do it. And it's not necessarily, I don't feel it's coming from my brain, cuz it may not be something that I'm even ever Del, you know, not your radar delved into or on my radar, but I'll get a very strong sense of, I just know that this is the way it's gonna work.

3 (13m 34s):
And so yesterday I think I, I was in that Twilight state and I might have just been falling asleep, but all of a sudden I felt a presence and the presence kind of, it almost melded into my, like I could see them coming towards me in my third eye maybe or something and it almost melded into my own face. But I, I don't know how to describe that. It was like so close. Yeah, very close. And I could sense them and see an image. And it was image of female and it felt angelic when you said angelic, when you, cuz you tapped into what I was, so what I can do, if you are feeling your guides, I can tap into that dream or that experience to help you identify it.

3 (14m 22s):
And when you were telling, I go, oh, it's angelic. Like, so it was a higher evaluation. She, she was angelic like, yeah, yeah. But it was, I wasn't dreaming because it wasn't like I wasn't having a dream. Right. That in between state, I was in that in between states. So I was just falling asleep. But what came over me was just a sense of peace. That's what it'll be like. And so it was just this, this sense of peace and, and comfort and that's all it was. And then it went away. So it was just, just a quick, maybe it was a birthday present. Dana just turned, just had her birthday a couple about a week ago, the big five. Oh. But yeah, it was just a, a really calm sense of, of peace, but almost like calming me.

3 (15m 7s):
So it was just like, and, and I wasn't in need of knowing that everything was going or everything is okay or there's nothing chaotic going on right now when you connect with it, when you're at the peaceful place, it's easier to connect more on because it just, it wasn't like you were calling for it. You just felt, you're like, oh, they're here. And that's really what people experience like I'm not alone. And you it's very cool. Yeah. It was very, very cool. It was just a, just a calming. Calm me like an, ah, I'm just getting a hit. I can tell people, okay, they're not staring at you all the time. So if you're like going to the bathroom or sharing showering, they're not staring at you. Okay though, they can come through during that time they're not attached.

3 (15m 49s):
Are they watching the all it's coming Santa Claus. Right. I would assume that you shouldn't be bothered by the other side looking at you anyway. That's right. They're not in interest of you. Anyway. I have a couple stories of how this started for me. And my first guy was my late thirties. When I started really getting into this type of life. I, your first guide, my first guide. Okay. First, first guy, when I first started getting into this in my late thirties and I started writing, I did automatic writing and I'm writing down what I'm getting. And I'm seeing in my third eye and what I'm writing a native American young woman. And I could see her having one feather in her hair. And she kept telling me her name was rain and not the kind that's R a I N like the rain.

3 (16m 31s):
It was more like the rain on the horses. So I could feel her. Like, it felt like it was a word of I'm guiding you. I'm leaving you to where need to go. Okay. And I'm, as we all do, when we first start on this, this path is, I'm like, okay, I want you to prove to me, this is really what I'm getting. Cause you were you doubting. That is what you were getting. I don't do that anymore. But I, I did then I'm like, okay, I need you. I need you to prove it to me that this is really, this is really you. And so I walk into sort like a metaphysical store, not exactly what sort like that. And right there in the front is a huge card of a native American woman that looked identical to the one I saw my third eye. And I was like, okay, okay.

3 (17m 12s):
That's one. And I'm sure you're thinking like, okay, how many more? And then I got this paper in the newspaper, in the mail that shouldn't have come to me. It was another city. And it talked about all the native Americans in that area. And then I can't remember all of 'em cause it's been, you know, so there was several sites, several sites. Yeah. Someone else saw it says, I don't think you a native America. And I'm like, okay. And I had such a kindred energy with her, like how you felt in the, you know, the Twilight zone. And I started doing all my automatic writing then. And that's how I got a lot of information about what I teach today. And then one day I didn't feel her around her presence. And I, I basically started grieving her.

3 (17m 52s):
Like where did you go to do I not have support anymore? And do I feel alone? And I felt another presence and it was more masculine. And he said to me, you're gonna have multiple guides throughout your life. It's for you to trust this. And part of that helped me too. Cuz when I work with other people I'm working with your guides. So I had to learn to shift that energy. Cause you're you're yes, you're connected to your own guides, but you connect to your clients guides when you are channeling for them. Right. So I had to learn that there are multiple energies out there and how do I tap into 'em and they all communicate a little differently. And then I just started trusting like, okay, just show up.

3 (18m 33s):
I don't have to identify who you are. I appreciate them. I'm grateful for them. And I tell them that help me with this. And they do. And like we said earlier, I don't always listen to when I'm getting guidance, but I will tell you a really cool story when I didn't really understand talking to my guides. But I learned through some of the experiences that I, I had this medium ability and I didn't know what to do with it. And we were really didn't have a lot of money at the time, but I heard John Edward was in town and I said, I need to get tickets to go see him. I didn't know why didn't have the money. They were very expensive. I wasn't expecting a reading. I just knew that it was important that I go there and be in that crowd.

3 (19m 14s):
So after a couple hours, I was like, why am I here? I didn't get a message. I don't understand what's happening. I'm here though. But the one thing I noticed was there was a lot of people there probably four or 500 people that wanted to hear a message from their loved one. And then I realized, oh wait a minute. I need to be able to step into this. Cause maybe I can help somebody. But it wasn't still like solidified. Yeah. It was just like, okay, I see a lot of pain and this he's helping people. So you have this ability and you you're, you know, it came naturally very naturally. It just, it was like a light switch turned on for you and everything started coming through and you really were just, I didn't even know there was mediums.

3 (20m 1s):
I didn't even know what a medium was, but you were just trying to learn like, okay, well I have this, what do I do with it now? Yeah. And it turned like the light switch. It wasn't shutting off at the time. So I was there with Mike now, late husband, but we got into the car and a radio station was on cozy 1 0 1 and they had a medium on, it was raki with SI the psyche. And what I learned about a year later is he had gone in the car at halftime and turned it onto a Rocky's game. So it was on an am station. I get in the car and I on the M station, I don't listen to the radio at night. I didn't know who Roki was or anything like that. And I called the radio station.

3 (20m 41s):
I had, no, I was not doing this as a profession. And I just said, Hey, I was there. And the producer said, or the, the manager said I was supposed to be there. I know it's very popular. I've helped other people through of several events after nine 11, I got on the radio and I did 52 readings on, off the air and changed my life. So if I wouldn't have listened and gotten the tickets and made the excuses, if I wouldn't have, you know, followed through with what I was feeling without understanding why that clear, knowing that clear knowing. Yeah. And it probably still would've happened, but would've taken longer. Would've been harder. What would've been the caveat to, to change that.

3 (21m 22s):
So that's how it works when those doors are open. When you walk through those opportunities, even though you're like, I can't do this or it's not gonna work, it doesn't make any sense. It was walking through those steps, trusting that process. That's and your guides guided you yeah. Through the whole thing. And, and it just worked out. And I think the other thing is learning when you don't pay attention. And I always believe working with your guides to begin with was simpler things. So I've told the story hundreds of times, but my parents were in town and I needed to go to the grocery store to get some food. And I wanted a glass of wine. Of course. Right. Of course I had to go to the grocery store first and I had like four or five items, spirits, spirits, and spirits.

3 (22m 3s):
I had to go to the grocery store. So I go there and I'm getting my three or four items and I could hear the guys go get the breadcrumbs. And we all been, you know, we all have that. Aha like turn off the iron. Did you check this? We've all had that. And we don't always listen. Right. And I kept arguing, I have the breadcrumbs, I don't need breadcrumbs. And I'm arguing even at the checkout and I get home and I pour my glass of wine and I'm, you know, trying to cook and I open up the cabinet and guess what? There's the breadcrumbs? And I'm like, and I opened it up and it was full of worms. And I could hear my guys go. So it's those simple things that we start learning to trust. So like when you're told to go, I know we all have GPS and stuff, but if you have this gut feeling about what you can do or what you, the phone call you should make or what direction and drive what direction or whatever, or you have to go do this here and listen to those things as that's going to build your trust with your guides.

3 (22m 59s):
Cause they want it to be easy for you. Yeah. I remember speaking of like what direction and drive we were driving to the radio station one morning. You and I trying to get you to radio show you were on. And I was guided to drive a different way and I didn't know why I'm like, well, we're driving this way. Right. And, and it was completely different, longer way than we normally go. But not even five minutes later, there was a wreck and we would've probably been right there either in it or right around it. Yeah. So those kinds of things probably happen to everyone. We just don't attribute it to that's our guides. Right? That's that's well, I can't hear them.

3 (23m 39s):
I'm laughing. Like if you could hear, if they yelled at you freak you out. And sometimes we, we do feel that loud voice or hear our name and it is to get our attention. But most of us are so busy that we're normally we don't even listen to the people we're with. I find that when we talk to somebody we're immediately trying to respond. We're not even addressing like, oh yeah, that makes yeah. That was a good thing that you did. We should do a podcast on listening, listening the most effective listener. If you don't listen to the people you're around and take pause and you're trying to fill up the space of communicating and you can't wait till you have a moment when they pause, you're not gonna hear your guides because you have to, and that's meditation meditation's being present.

3 (24m 27s):
So if you don't sit in a quiet room, that's fine. But if you can't just sit and listen to somebody and hear their thoughts and even repeat what they say, it's gonna be really hard to hear your guides repeating what somebody says when you're talking to 'em is so important. You learn that. It says it's really important. It's really important. Those are the, that means you've been heard. Yeah. And there's so many times where people are already wanting to respond to what you said to compare. Yeah. I had a sales manager one time that, and I was always just kind of a natural at listening and being able to hold that conversation without wanting to jump in, but she would jump in every opportunity she had to sell.

3 (25m 12s):
And that's how I view it as like, you need to listen first before you know how to respond or before you know what somebody needs, you have to hear them. Right. And I always found that really difficult. It's I almost for, you can ride with me, but you can't talk. Well, it becomes like you feel that energy and it's like the fingers on there, you know, the nails on yeah. The chalkboard and people always ask too, like, what can I ask? There's you can ask anything. But I think the biggest key is being open to what shows up. When I started on this path, my whole intention of, and doing all this was for my husband to get back into his VI VP career.

3 (25m 58s):
And that's not what happened. And the universe said, there's another door. That door is closed. It continues to close. Where are you gonna take this? So we don't wanna cause bad pain to someone that's hurt us. You know, we don't want any karma kind of stuff. Right. So it's really, what's the highest good for ourselves. And sometimes what we think is really great for us, isn't the path that you are here to learn or is it the best opportunity? And I think people and look at how many people you have helped over the course of 20 years. Yeah. Over 50,000 people have seen you, at least, at least. And I think it's also that sometimes, you know, your guys are not the helicopter parents.

3 (26m 40s):
They're not over you making sure everything's fine. There's all that free will. But I think the biggest thing is are you open to other doors opening that you didn't expect? Are you open to things, turning out a different way because you believe that was the best way and only way to do it. And I think we get limited beliefs when we do that. And that's what we talk about in our classes is we create these limiting beliefs that if I just had this, or if it just looked like this, if it showed up this way yeah. Then I would really know. Yes. Yeah. And it's letting the universe say, you know what? You sign this idea. We see this bigger picture for you. It might be a little scary, but wow.

3 (27m 21s):
You knows even meeting you and opening up my thoughts about being with a female relationship relationship and the universe says, well, everything you said on your list that you asked for is here. I just didn't put a HYM or her, but I let the universe bring you. And it was just like, well, I can't argue, do I go for it or not? Do I do the same thing I've been doing that hasn't worked? And if you haven't heard that story, it's in our manifest podcast, but it's letting the universe what you, what you desire. But then almost like I wrote that it was already here as if, as if yeah. But then being open to how it, how it's handled, how it shows up.

3 (28m 1s):
So that's the key. Yeah. And it's hard not to control. We think we know what's best and these enlightened beings know a lot more than you. Right. So yeah. That's, that's, it is hard not to wanna control it. Absolutely. So there's no correct way to ask. If you have a faith that you follow, you can do it that way, or you ask somebody, you know, what do you do? Or to me it's just being present and, and writing it down or being grateful or, you know, imagining it, that's what we do. Vision boards and things like that for us to sort of get those ideas and then ask them to help us. And then, so we should talk about as ascended masters angels.

3 (28m 45s):
So before we started doing this, I was just kinda writing my notes down and I opened up a book called arch angels and said masters. And what I opened up to was I thought this was fascinating. So remember, remember her name was Dana, and guess what we opened up to. So I'm Dana. And when you opened the book, the page opened up to an ascended master by the name of Dana, which, who even knew that that was a thing I guess someone did. Yeah. See maybe you're just ascended master here to help me in an earthly level. Maybe come down here to earth. You're gonna get me in shape. Well, I chose if that's the case, I chose a really hard path.

3 (29m 26s):
Wow. Not with me with other things. Yeah. But what's cool. And I am mostly Irish. My, my bloodline is mostly Irish in Spanish. Right. I have a lot of Iberian blood, which is Spaniard Portuguese. So I have that, but I mostly Irish, so believe it or not, my grandfather was a hundred percent Irish. And so you had some qui yeah, yeah. Conta doors and grandpa's, but this is based in Ireland, this ascended master is a Celtic deity.

3 (30m 8s):
So I thought that was really cool. And a female, which isn't typical. There aren't a lot of, because it's the, in the Celtic, the Celtic. Yeah. And the Celtic belief system, more rare. She and she was wearing a King's crown. And so I thought that was very cool. So she helps with abundance alchemy and divine magic animals and healing children and fertility and mothering elemental kingdom meeting and working with, I guess it says Lecan here, but that's just their belief system. Very spirits. Yeah. But also spirits. Yeah. Worthiness self-esteem and deservingness issues.

3 (30m 50s):
I love this. And fertility doesn't have to be, it could be abundance in some way, like getting things to be abundant. Yeah. That's what you do. I do that. Yeah. So you guys just call Dana at her number and ask her for these things. My magic wand. Yes. So the way to bring her into your life is where look at or hold something that makes you feel abundant or even better makes you feel like royalty. This could mean going to a jewelry store, trying on a beautiful ring, looking at a photograph of an opulent estate. Imagine yourself with unlimited resources, fill a sense of total financial security.

3 (31m 31s):
Even if you can imagine an experience this sensation just for a brief time, that's enough. It says, so mentally say thank you for lending me your magical abilities, which I now use in the service of fun, joy, and support of my divine mission. Thank you for your generosity in showing me how to accept these resources and how to enjoy them. Thank you for helping me receive without guilt. And to know that I deserve this attention and support and that will, it will ultimately allow me to help the planet. That's kinda cool. Its so you're basically it's given yes. You know who you can call like the yellow pages, which we don't have yellow pages call on.

3 (32m 14s):
You can call up on they're they're there. They're just waiting. They won't intervene because that's a boundary it's oh, you should tell the story about Archangel Michael at the class the one time. Yeah. So I was having this class several years ago and people are laying on the floor and there's one or two people with each person and we're doing energy work and I didn't, I took I'm I do Reiki, but I did do it. I just taught them to bring in the energy and the love. And before we brought in arching Joe, Michael, as a sin master for this group, and as we were doing this, the room started getting warmer and warmer and warmer and all of a sudden, a light flashed through the room and you could almost sound like lightning and everyone stopped and looked and go, what was that?

3 (32m 60s):
And people could see the lightning. And when you read upon his energy, that's what happens. Wow. So he came into the room that gave me chills. Yeah. Came into the room and it was like, even for me doing this work for these years, I was like, wow. So it is really, yeah. And that's why they're all energy, energy doesn't die. So they bring their energy in just like when people ask for prayers, it's all about the energy of asking and intention, the intention. So whatever, if you are not a person that prays, there's so many other things I do more of intention, journaling, you know, creating those things to manifest. So there's lots of different ways and, and they will, some people pray or call it prayer, prayer.

3 (33m 41s):
Yeah. It's all the same thing. It's all intention. So it's intention. So those are some fun stories and we have a lot more, but what some things to help everyone get there, which I think is always important is really be present when you go here and breathe. And when we're going through those rough times, there's a feeling of panic and unknown. And I, I remember being there and still at times, and it's, it's being in that calm state, like when the angel came to see you. Yeah. That was so cool. AB absolutely. And when, if you can't get there, remember a time that you were by the lake or by the ocean or you were holding that baby or that puppy that gave you that piece. And you wanna go back to that time, but there's a smell or a song and things like that.

3 (34m 23s):
So that you can be, you know, really open and look at the situation, different, going outdoors, doing yoga, opening up your heart and all those things are gonna be another tool don't be attached, who you need to ask for help. Or this is a better one. A lot of times people want to help somebody, but make sure you have their permission because we always say stay in your lane. So unless someone can't ask for it, but if someone is really having a hard time and as a family or a friend, ask them if you can ask for help for them, because they do have the right to know what you're doing too. So the fourth one is give time to revisit and make sure that your, your request is clear.

3 (35m 7s):
I think a lot of people say one thing or they panic and, and it's really being clear about what it is. And again, I can't repeat this itself. So write it out to write it out. Think about it, say it to a friend, record it, listen to it. Is that really what I'm looking for? And I'm really good at when someone asks for something to say, wait a minute, is this is this surely what you're really what you're looking for? Yeah. To clarify it, be very specific and then be open to how it shows up. Trust. Trust is a really difficult one. There is support on the beyond, but there's also a timing. Would I always say, if you are pregnant, you don't want that baby earlier than the full term.

3 (35m 48s):
So sometimes we want things to happen earlier because that helps us. But sometimes the timing is really important about when it's time to show up. So be patient with that too seven, excuse me, six, listen and watch pay attention to the science. What happens is that again? We get so busy. We're in that spot. Listen, pay attention, take deep breaths. You know, we have watches that, tell us to breathe, do that every hour, just sit down and go. I need to breathe. I wanna just be focused. I wanna be present because you're gonna miss the signs. Otherwise you're just racing by everything and not hearing what your guys are trying to tell you. So if you're listening or watching or you, you, you slow yourself down for a minute.

3 (36m 29s):
What would you say? Like, should they focus on feeling grateful just for a minute, just slow down or should they focus on just I'm here, I'm present or whatever the best intention to set during that, that just minute of calm, you know? I mean, I don't have any specific guidelines. What I say is what works for you at that moment. So if you're in the car and you're driving and you are thinking about the situation, it may be putting on some great music and taking some deep breaths and saying, I'm trusting this process. I am open to what's happening. I know that you're there to support me. So maybe saying an affirmation hundred percent be present affirmation.

3 (37m 12s):
Yeah. I'm so glad you're here to help clarify all this stuff. You know what I would love, but I think, I think one of the, the coolest things that I ever owned was these little affirmation cards. And I don't know where they're at right now, but that would be something that I think people would love for you to create. Okay. Don't you think? Absolutely. That makes it easy. Yeah. And that's why I think people wanted easy, especially that the crisis, right? Seven, 9% of the time, you just don't hear it in your head. You're led to the answer. So if you're not hearing something and you're having a question, I know this happens to me. I I'm with somebody I'm drawn to somebody and I have something going on and I'm not getting the clarity.

3 (37m 56s):
The person I talk to either has a similar story or they have the same experience or they've seen it happen. And they will say something to me that is very, very clear. And so what we wanna do is look at opportunities that we can take because you may not hear it in your mind or you hear it and you're not gonna trust it. Like the breadcrumb story. I ignored it. I get paid to listen to my guides and I ignored the bread story. Hate manifested over and over right about it. Think about it, say it out loud, open your heart to the possibilities, I think end on that. But just to go back a little bit, we, you wanna make sure that you're not causing pain to somebody, somebody else for your happiness.

3 (38m 37s):
You know, you don't want someone to suffer. And even if they have been horrible and difficult, we're not asking you to forgive them. We're just saying they all have their own journeys and their own paths. And to make we make it frustrated and say, oh, absolutely. But really it's, I, I really like the opening your heart to the possib, to your own possibilities. And they're not Hitman guides. Geez. They're not attorneys. They're not, but you know, they're there for so many different reasons and all different causes. They, they have all these different talents to help you love and light love and light. And so if you've had this happen to, you know, that it's just not a one time or 10 time thing, the more that you can continue to practice, this is gonna be easier and easier and it will become your natural ability to connect with those that are more enlightened.

3 (39m 30s):
