Sometimes it is okay to ask for help in life, to ask for direction or just to acknowledge the things that give you joy. Recently I have begun working on and have had good success in learning how to communicate with my spiritual guide. Part of my problem with this process though is that I don’t want to just hit an easy button and get what I want, I still have that burning desire to learn and do things on my own.
Last night was not a good night for me emotionally as I got into a fight with my wife and ended up going to bed hours early. Today when I woke up the pain was still fresh in my heart and in light of that I wore a red shirt so that no one could see my heart bleeding today.
As I scrolled through Google+ first thing this morning I asked my guide and higher self that I find a sign to help me get centered today. This is something I do not typically like to do as I have always felt like it was my responsibility to figure it out on my own. After all, isn’t that the whole reason we incarnate on Earth… to learn from our trials?
It did not take long though until I came across a post that caught my attention and I clicked on it to take a look. As I read through the article I was flat out amazed as things that she said were just what I needed to see. Mainly it reinforced things that I already know, but it brought them to the forefront so that I could properly focus on them.
I would like to thank the author of this post, Sonia Voldseth, for sharing her story with us as well as a link to her post: Are You Good Enough?
More Than Just One?!?!
After that I moved on feeling a ton better about myself and feeling centered once again. However, I would soon realize that I was not done seeing the things that I needed to see for the morning. As I progressed over to working on my site here I went to a G+ community for other like minded sites as mine and quickly found two more articles that hit the spot.
The first one was from a friend of mine from Wealthy Affiliate who recently came back to the program. Lawrence Gregory wrote an article called: How to Find Your Inner Peace – 3 Powerful Ways. It was the first way that he described that really hit me like a brick over the head. The one statement he explored was, “whatever you resist, persists.” and that really hit the mark for me.
The next article I read was written by Helen Vella called, “What to Do When You Can’t Change?” While this in itself was a solid article with good information, it was the link at the bottom that caught my attention, “Emotional Freedom Techniques.” That article was really cool and I just had to share it on Facebook too.
All of these authors stepped up to the plate and put themselves out there, sharing personal details throughout there posts in an effort to help people. Today I left comments for all of them to let them know that it worked for me and that I really appreciated it.
Asking for Help
So now let’s get back to why it is okay to ask for help, whether it is from family and friends, strangers, or your spiritual guide. I will take a few moments to discuss each one here in a little more detail.
Family and Friends: Our family and friends in this life are often much more than just that. They are a part of our soul’s family or group and we tend to reincarnate together very frequently and in all kinds of different relations. In light of this, you have to remember that we do so to help each other along the way and thus why it is okay to ask them for help.
Strangers: When it comes to people you don’t know it is still okay to ask them as well. Why? Because we are social creatures and on top of that we are all here to learn, grow and prosper. By asking a stranger for help we are acting out socially and that is okay. It also gives someone else the opportunity to do something kind for a stranger, which in turn can help them feel better about themselves.
Spiritual Guide: This one is the one that tripped me up when I first began to communicate with mine as I didn’t want to get the answer from him. Alas though, as a guide they understand what information we need to hear and only communicate with us as to what will help us on our journey. They are not an easy button at all, but will get you pointed in the right direction as needed.
Guidance, Not Answers
This is what it boils down to. None of us have the answers for anyone else other than ourselves. The only thing that we can do is to provide guidance by letting them know what worked for us. It is up to the asking party then to take that advice and to make a choice as to whether or not they apply it to their life to see if it works.
You see none of are perfect and what works for some may not work for others. We all come from different backgrounds, upbringings and so forth. However, it is when we come together and accept each other as human beings that we can communicate, learn, grow, and so much more with each other.
Lastly, I would like to ask you to also look at this from another perspective. If you see someone is struggling, please offer any assistance that you might be able to give. Note that I said offer, as the other party has the free will to either accept or decline it.
Before You Go… Please Share
Before you go I would ask that you please share your thoughts and perspective on this topic. Through discussion of it we can all grow and learn together, so please add your valuable piece to our puzzle. Also, if you have any questions at all please feel free to share them here in the comment section as well or email me directly.
