Spirituality Guide: Looking At Spirit Guides and Conscious Living


spirituality concept


The journey to spirituality is a personal and profound one. It is a path that leads us to our inner selves, helping us understand our purpose in life and connect with the universe on a deeper level. This journey often involves spirit guides and conscious living, two essential aspects of spirituality that can help us navigate life's challenges with grace and wisdom. This short spirituality guide delves into those two topics. On a personal note, I have been on a spiritual journey since I was a small child. I have always questioned the purpose of life, and I still do at the age of 62. 


Understanding Spirituality


Spirituality is an expansive concept with room for many perspectives. It involves a sense of connection to something bigger than ourselves, typically involving a search for meaning in life. It is how you find meaning, hope, comfort, and inner peace. Many people find spirituality through religion, while others find it through music, art or a personal connection with nature. I have found it in nature, meditation and most recently, in my craft, where I feel guided to create.


Spirituality can provide us peace, balance, joy, relief from stress and anxiety, and a sense of purpose and direction. It encourages self-growth by promoting self-awareness and self-love. By embracing spirituality, we can lead more fulfilling lives that align with our true selves.

The Role of Spirit Guides in Spirituality


Spirit guides are entities believed to be assigned to us before we are born to guide us through our spiritual journey on earth. You can often see them as wise mentors in the spiritual realm who help guide our decisions so that we can grow spiritually.


Connecting with your spirit guides can be an enlightening experience that guides you during difficult times or when making important decisions. They can offer wisdom beyond what we might comprehend from our limited human perspective.


To connect with your spirit guides, you must open yourself up spiritually, which you can achieve through meditation or prayer, where you calm your mind and focus on your spiritual energy. You may ask for guidance or express gratitude for their presence.  


Here are some general steps you can consider to connect with your guides.


Meditation

  • Find a quiet and comfortable space.

  • Practice deep breathing to relax your mind and body.

  • Visualise a peaceful and safe environment.

  • Ask your spirit guide to make their presence known.


Set Your Intentions

  • Clearly state your intention to connect with your spirit guide.

  • Be open and sincere in your desire to establish a connection.

  • Focus on positive and loving intentions.


Create a Sacred Space:

  • Designate a specific area for your spiritual practice.

  • Use candles, crystals, or other meaningful objects.

  • Create an atmosphere that promotes tranquility and mindfulness.


Use Tools

  • Some people find tools like tarot cards, pendulums, or crystals helpful.

  • Use these tools with respect and a positive mindset.

  • Focus on the guidance and insights they may provide.


Dream Journaling

  • Keep a dream journal by your bedside.

  • Before sleep, express your intention to connect with your spirit guide.

  • Record any dreams or messages you receive upon waking.


Listen to Your Intuition

  • Pay attention to your instincts and gut feelings.

  • Trust your inner voice and intuition.

  • Your spirit guide may communicate through subtle feelings or thoughts.


Practice Patience

  • Connecting with a spirit guide may take time.

  • Be patient and persistent in your efforts.

  • Trust that the connection will happen in its own time.


Ask for Signs

  • Request specific signs from your spirit guide.

  • These signs could appear in your daily life, such as repeated symbols or numbers. I often get repeated numbers such as 111, 1111, 222, 333, 444, 555 and I often get sent coloured feathers


Be Open to Different Forms of Communication

  • Spirit guides may communicate through thoughts, feelings, symbols, or even through other people.

  • Be open to various forms of communication.


Maintain a Positive Vibration

  • Cultivate a positive and loving energy.

  • Negative emotions and thoughts can create barriers to spiritual connection.


Seek Guidance from Experts

  • Consider seeking guidance from experienced spiritual teachers, mentors, or mediums.

  • They may offer insights or techniques to help you connect with your spirit guide.



Conscious Living: A Path to Spiritual Growth


Conscious living is another crucial aspect of spirituality. It involves always being aware of your thoughts, actions, and feelings. This awareness allows you to live in the present rather than dwelling on the past or worrying about the future. When you think about it, right now is all that exists. You can't undo the past, and you have no idea what lies ahead in the future. Life can change in an instant.


Conscious living promotes mindfulness, which can reduce stress and increase happiness. It encourages us to live authentically and make decisions that align with our values and beliefs. By practising conscious living, we can lead more fulfilling lives in harmony with our spiritual selves.


Practising conscious living can start with simple steps such as paying attention to your breathing, acknowledging your feelings without judgment, and taking time each day for self-reflection. It helps to read other people's stories about near death experiences and meditation.


Embracing Spirituality for a Fulfilling Life


Spirituality is a journey of self-discovery that leads us to a deeper understanding of ourselves and the universe around us. We can enhance our spiritual growth by connecting with our spirit guides and practising conscious living.



Remember that spirituality is a personal journey that is unique to each individual. There's no right or wrong way to be spiritual. What matters most is finding what resonates with you and brings you peace, joy, and a sense of purpose.


In this spirituality guide, we've explored the concepts of spirituality, spirit guides, and conscious living. I hope this guide serves as a starting point for your spiritual journey or provides new insights if you're already on your path. Many short articles on this blog explore spirituality even more, including my spiritual experiences


Embrace the journey of spirituality with an open heart and mind. Remember that it's not about reaching a destination but learning and growing along the way.
