Have you ever meditated or channelled?  Do you hear your guide?

Please share your experiences. I'm eager to learn how to "hear" my Guide and get the most out of my psychic abilities. 
Thank you!!

I love meditating, its like a mental deep cleanse.  In high school I was in a group that taught meditation techniques from all different cultures & did guided meditations; it was amazing.  I can't say I've ever experienced anything like a spirit guide, for me its mostly about quieting down and giving myself a chance to just listen to what's going on in my head & heart.  Sometimes I'm surprised & things come up that I had no idea I was worried about or happy about.  But afterwards I always feel like my brain's had a wonderful massage.

One of the best mediations my group (Quest, it was called) did was with an orange.  We each had an orange and sat in a quiet, dark place and just slowly take in the orange with each of our senses, touch, smell, taste.  It was incredible.

For me, it's just being open.  Letting go of preconceived notions.  Doing what your heart feels is right.  Living true to yourself.  Meditation can help you achieve those things.  If you haven't meditated before, a guided mediation (CD or tape) is a good way to start.  For me, it's just a "sense" I get when making a decision, or considering something.  It's not like a traditional communication, but more a feeling or thought.  I have had it happen many times - but I have to be open to receive it.

In the "Angels" thread Les talks of energy and spirit:

"I believe that we are energy, that our spirit, our soul, our spark of the divine, the thing that makes us uniquely us, is energy, and since I know that energy is neither created or destroyed, our spirit survives after we've worn out this particular body."

Couple that with what L says: Doing what your heart feels is right.  Living true to yourself."

I seek to be aware of what that spirit/soul/energy that is me feels is right and to live true to that. I pray to God that His spirit will help me to see clearly that which is right. I seek quiet times to ponder and meditate on what is right. And I try to muster the courage to live true to that.

Our family motto: Do what is right; let the consequence follow.

I really liked reading your post Marilyn. Can you tell us more?  Is this a specific skind of meditation? How did you learn it?

Grief is like a tidal wave - just when you think you are doing ok, it will hit you out of nowhere and knock you off your feet. 

I don't know if you are open to spirituality or looking at things in a different perspective, but I have found the writings and commentary of John Edward to be very comforting with regard to loss.  He is a medium and he communicates with those who have died or "crossed over" as he calls it.  One thing he says about losing a loved one is that "It doesn't get better, just different".  I think that is very true. 

Since I have opened my mind to being receptive, I have received a number of communications with my Mom - sometimes in ways which have totally blown me away.  Edward has a number of books he has written about his experiences.  He's very down to Earth.

My Mom died very suddenly on 9-11-01 - not in the attacks but because of them.  She died that night of an apparent heart attack.  The stress of the day killed her.  She was my best friend as well as my Mom.  I cried every day for five years and still cry from time to time.  John Edward has helped me deal with the loss in so many ways.  I have learned that she is still with me in spirit, but not body, so I have to re-learn how to love her.  I have to give up being able to talk to her, see her, all of the things we take for granted - to give up the wish that she would see my son in body, but to know that she does see him and know him from where she is now.  It's been a long journey.

It is true that everyone has their own timeline for grief.  The best advice I have received (and give) is to cry all you want.  Give yourself permission.  We always try to be so stoic and roll with the punches.  This is a time to allow yourself to break down and feel what you need to feel, as that is the path to healing. 

Sorry if I am rambling.  I have had a lot of loss in the last 10 years so I think about it a lot.  Please know I will keep you in my thoughts, Marilyn.  ((Many, many gentle hugs))

Wow, L -- you got ME in tears! That was the nicest, sweetest, sincere and helpful post I have seen in quite a while. Your openness and honesty and love poured through that message.

For that posting and all those thoughts (not rambling at all!), we all Thank You!!!! And send YOU some {{{Big Gentle hugs}}}

:)  dawn

 

P.S. Gayle, you made me need to call my husband and tell him that I love him. I do that every day anyways but this morning, he just left with no hug or kiss, which is unusual.  So, he'll get extra hugs tonight!!   Thank you for your beautiful post.

i had something weird happen to me a few months ago. i was at work and i was going to walk over a skid and i heard a voice in my head say "you are going to be sorry!". i walked over it anyway and i almost fell from tripping on a piece of shrinkwrap on the skid.  was this a spirit guide warning me? the words that were said were not something i would normally say and they just popped into my head. kind of freaked me out! any thoughts please????

Holly, that absolutely WAS your spirit guide!!!!  any time you have warnings and stuff like that pop into your head, it's your Guide telling you things and warning you about something. That is so very neat that you experienced that. Keep track of how often little things like that happen... such as "Watch out for deer" when you are driving home.... and then, POOF! a deer is standing by the road. These things happen to me almost daily and I love it!!

I highly recommend Sylvia Browne's book "Spirit Guides" that comes with a CD.  Actually, any of her books will help you tremendously.

Yep, listen to those warnings, LOL!!

I have had a couple of  "close calls".  Once, a guy was riding a bicycle right in front of my car.  My sister was with me.  Something told me - "Watch that guy!" and I slowed down.  Just as I did, my sister said "Watch that guy!" and the two seconds later, the guy flipped his bike and sprawled out on the pavement right in front of us.  I stopped probably 5 ft from his head.  He pulled the bike over, we asked him if he was ok and he said yes.  My sister recognized him.  Later she called him to see if he was ok - he was, but the bike was trashed.  He said he flipped on a loose rock.

Another time, I planned a trip to Mexico with my niece.  I kept getting the feeling that we shouldn't go, that something was wrong.  During the trip, I got caught in a rip tide in the Carribean ocean and almost drowned - it was extremely serious.  The day of my near-drowning incident, my Mom kept getting a sick feeling that something was wrong with me, and that I was trapped in water.

When we got our photos back from the trip, there was one photo that showed the beach where I had the drowning incident.  On the photograph, there was a big black arrow pointing to the area I was in when I got in trouble.  It was a thread on the lens or something,. but it was very clearly shaped like an arrow, as if someone had drawn it on the photo.
