My Intuitive Journey: Regular Direct Contact, Part III
Thanks for your patience last week while I took a “break” to take my daughter on a special adventure for her birthday! She had a great time, and so did I. The experience simply reinforced for me how much I love the life my husband and I have set up, with both of us working from home and able to modify our schedules pretty easily. I had been getting really burned out both in the weeks before and in preparing for the time off, because working for yourself is not always easy. It has great perks—the almost-last-minute weekday trip to an amusement park with my kid being one of them—but sometimes it can feel like a slog.
That’s why my daily meditation and contact with my Self and my guides is so very important—it helps me stay motivated. In the week before we left, I was working late nights, which meant I could rarely wake up early enough in the morning to have this contact with my guides—which, of course, led to greater likelihood of me growing disheartened. My guides really do help me see the larger picture and find the strength to carry through.
And of course that thought was on my mind. I bet when I open my journal to the next few entries, I’m going to see that theme—trusting them to help us through—come up. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Typing up … journal entries from 2010 into draft of YoSaL [my book, Year of Shadow and Light]. … Holy cow, is all I can say. I was listening, and the messages I got were good. Deep. And they pointed me in the right direction.
I mean, of course they did, but sometimes it still takes me by surprise, how pointed the guides can be. When I get a message from them, I always wonder if I’m interpreting “correctly.” … But to read a journal entry from six years ago about something I had completely forgotten, and to see that I was listening and that it was [also] wonderful advice for today, the day I’m reading it for the first time, well, synchronicity is an amazing and astounding thing to me, no matter how often it happens.

Remembering the journal entry from 2010 that I read yesterday, last night, I tried to open communications to listen to my guides. I fell asleep. This morning, I used my [Miracle Morning] silent time to open myself. I don’t think I got anything, but when I mentally apologized for not keeping things open, I received the message that I am succeeding. [Then], when I walked into the bathroom to take a shower, I received the message that this is when I am at my most open [to] communication from my guides, which, of course, I’ve known. It’s often when I have a conversation with them, free of distractions. So, I guess when all else fails, I can open nearly automatically during showers.

As I review my journal entries from 2010 for YoSaL, I see messages that keep applying to now as well. Today … I found one reminding me to be brave and to finish my book, because my bravery would help others to be brave. In 2010, I was doubtful; today, I’m not.
I’m not anxious or nervous about finishing the book, just driven (however slowly) to complete it and get it published. I’m not (very) worried about its message being accepted or believed … I know the time is approaching for it. I’m filled with certainty that the past few years have been teaching me how to write and create a better book, and putting the best people in my life for helping me with the book. The time approaches, and I’m getting excited.
Only just realized/remembered that in [one] past-life regression … I said my goal [in my most recent incarnation] had been to be brave but that I hadn’t learned that lesson. And then I was told in 2010 to be brave. Perhaps this journey is partly to give me the opportunity to learn the lesson that I didn’t feel I was able to learn in that life?
Did you notice that I was noticing my guides’ messages in my life even when I wasn’t specifically in my meditation time? I was even seeing their work in my life. (Why do you think I was so driven to review journal entries from 2010 that were telling me to be brave, when my guides knew I needed some bravery to make it through this time in 2016?)
Incidentally, I am back on working on YoSaL after a break of several weeks. My guides are reminding me of the goal of having it ready for beta readers by Halloween. Eep! Every time I panic about not having enough time or energy, they tell me that together, we are capable of anything and that they’ll help me find the time and the energy. I’m glad they’re as ambitious as I am!
