I love guidance, but I can be so stubborn and rebellious! Sometimes it's more fun to pretend I just don't know and lose myself in mindless consumption instead of actualizing this whole "divine purpose" thing!
Other kinds of advice I dislike or ignore:
- No more caffeine
- Go introduce yourself to that person
- Tell that person they need to learn Reiki
- Don't have sex with that guy tonight
Usually it comes back to bite me in the butt (especially that last one!), so I am learning to honor them more. Then of course, there are times they tell me to do stuff and it totally sucks! Or is not what I expected. Or it seems like the point is to teach me to trust my gut instead of asking them, because if I had, it would've been obvious based on logic not to do whatever I was considering...
Do any of you ever ignore your guides' advice? What have the results been?
I am not sure who or what you are listening to. Some of it sounds like guides, some of it sounds like ego.
Some of it sounds like picking up on others' thoughts.
[b:2f5oe0ox]Higher-selfs point of view:[/b:2f5oe0ox]
My higher self sees all of my life paths I can take from this now.
They see all the possibilities, but they do not have the ability to make any choices.
They can only make guidance based on your current desires/who you are being.
They are like someone following your car in a helicopter.
They can easily see the road ahead. What the traffic is like, which roads lead where, etc.
But you are the one driving the car. You can see and feel the road, and you should have your hands on the wheel.
You do have your hands on the wheel? Or are you letting your ego drive?
They will always give you advice that feels like a top down view of how things
can go. They will never get angry at you. And since they are not a part of the time,
they will never say you must rush to do something. However, they may send you
signals like, rush over here now... so you can meet up with this other person.
Else, they will never push you on time. It makes no difference to them if you do it
this lifetime or next, or next...
Ego's point of view:[/b:2f5oe0ox]
Your ego is tied to you and this planet/life. At its best, it is a clear window that
shows you the world you are playing in. At worst, it shows you a distorted view,
coloring your perception and judgment. Making it seem the the self destructive
choice is the obvious one for you to make.
If your ego is a negative ego, and it often is... Well, you forced your ego to drive
because you were too scared to take the wheel. And it crashed, and you blamed it
and it crashed, and you blamed it.... your negative ego is hella mad at you.
All in all, the ego is a window. And you may need to replace your window with a new
one. Budhist's death of the ego is one example.
When the ego talks, it sounds like you. It sounds like the world. You look at someone
and immediately think that are the type that will use you. A feeling comes up of
someone that used you before. That is negative ego talking.
[b:2f5oe0ox]The family in your head[/b:2f5oe0ox]
In your head is a bunch of sub-parts of your thinking.
Like the protector/guardian, the child, observer/reporter...
These often sound like you, or your parents or your guardians.
They have specific tasks to do inside your mind. Learning who they are and
what their jobs are will help. It will help you stop having conflicts with them.
Get you both working on the same side.
[b:2f5oe0ox]And there are thoughts from other people[/b:2f5oe0ox]
Like, I wish some people would ask me about my new Reiki class. (I only have 6 people signed up....)
All for now
