Today I’d love to share with you the story of how I met my spirit guide, Kaine, and how you can connect with your own guides.
I’d like to give you all a bit of background information about myself before I begin my story. ☺ I grew up with a pretty supportive family, where some of my family members are open to the idea of psychics, mediums, and the spirit world. This has helped me a lot throughout my life growing up, especially when I began exploring Wicca when I was around 12 years old. But, if you had asked me back then whether I thought that I had any intuitive abilities I would have laughed and said no, not at all!
It wasn’t until I began university that I started to really explore meditation and my intuitive abilities. My spiritual exploration really began to expand once I met a friend of mine while I was at work one day. He was just another customer at work, but something about him and his friend stood out. I remember that I liked a flower on his jacket, which had somehow led us to the topic of healing, and he had mentioned that he is a Reiki Master. Now, I had been interested in Reiki for a long time, but had never really found a teacher, so this was an exciting moment for me! We exchanged numbers and since then I began attending the meditation classes he hosted. The Reiki training actually happened fairly later than I had expected it to haha but it came when the time was right. However, it was thanks to one of this friend’s meditation classes that I met one of my best friends and Spirit Guide, Kaine.
Now! Onto the story! 😁
The day had been like any other university day: I went to classes, ate, and later went out to enjoy a lovely guided meditation hosted by a friend of mine. There was a point during the meditation where I began to sink into it deeply, like never before. I soon realized that there was someone kneeling beside me…but I knew there wasn’t anyone physically there.
And yet I could see and feel this being kneeling, crouching down, beside me while my eyes were closed. I could tell he was whispering in my ear, trying to speak but I wasn’t able to hear what he said…And then…I saw his face. I instantly felt like crying out of happiness and joy. I felt this overwhelming sigh of relief. I had found this best friend that I had been searching for, looking for, waiting for, my whole life and there he was! ❤
His face has strong, defined features, with short black hair and blue eyes.
It was a beautiful moment, one that I will cherish always. ❤
Since that day I’ve learned a lot about Kaine and I’s connection, throughout this life and past ones. We’ve lived together and been a part of the Knights Templar, we were even trained to be spirit guides together, and he’s the brother of a dear friend and teacher of mine – but those are stories for another time!
I am sure there are some of who have the burning question of how do I meet my own guides?! Well, Kaine and I have written a post called Explaining Spirit Guides where we discuss what and who spirit guides are and how you can begin working with your guides. I would like to share a part of the post today, about how you can connect with your own guides, and you may hear your guides, and why it may sound like your own voice talking back to you.
How can people connect with their own spirit guides?
There are so many ways. An easy one is just asking us to help find you a parking spot. Sure enough one will show up. Just trying to do this in your day to day life will help you gain trust in the relationship you have with your guides. You can ask for a table to be freed up at a busy restaurant. Simple things like that.
One of the things that you can do that may help you all out in such a great way is to just ask to be sent love when you can’t see it. If a situation occurs and you can’t seem to cheer yourself up about it, that you can’t make it through the day without constantly feeling down, ask us to help you. Again we will choose the path of least resistance. So if you are unable to quiet your mind and try talking to us like that, we will just place people in your path that will show you the love we all have for you.
How do people usually hear their guides?
Well that’s a good question. Many people may feel discouraged because they don’t “hear” the voice of their guides when they ask them questions, only their own voice back in their heads. But try asking yourself if the answer you received was one that you would normally think of as a possible solution to your question? And more importantly, is this answer one that is of love and support? Any response we would give you would never be one that would say to put down someone else for hurting you, we would ask you to let go and forgive them, see that they are just doing their best in their own way. And we would never put you down either because we love you, every little and big part of you, and we want you to see that love for yourself as well.
So please don’t be discouraged that you are only hearing your own voice talking back to you. Katherine and I have these conversations every once in a while as well. There are times where she will doubt these “conversations in her head” and usually I just ask her if she really thinks she’s made this up, and the answer is no, no she hasn’t. Something that she finds useful is just feeling energetically the voice that talks back, she can hear it as her voice but subtly it has a male voice or energy with it if it is me. Her elf mother on the other hand has a different voice than her own. So just try to feel if you can notice any subtle difference energetically between you and your guides.
Just ask yourself, if you heard someone talk back to you and it wasn’t your voice in your own head, wouldn’t that scare you and freak you out a little? Most likely. So that is also why you hear us in your own voice, so that you can more easily hear our messages rather than wonder why you’re hearing voices in your head that aren’t yours.
Are there any other things you would like to explain about spirit guides?
Of course. We are here always by your side, to help you, to guide you, to show you the love we see in you every single day of your life. We are your best friends, your confidants, your guides, and we can be your mentors to show you what you are all capable of doing. Every person has a spirit guide, well honestly, so many more than just one guide. You really do have a team of spirits working with you, cheering you on, keeping you company throughout every thing you do.
So as silly as it may sound in your head asking for a parking spot when it’s busy out, or asking for a table when it’s supper time at a fancy restaurant, just take a leap of faith and try it. You’ll get used to it once you notice that we’re here to help you and we absolutely love helping you. We can’t do things for you, but we can help give you that nudge in the right direction or smooth things out for you if you’re having a rough time. So no, we won’t get upset if you ask us to help you with these little things, because we love it. We love just being apart of your lives and watching each of you learn and grow. ❤
There are many other ways that one can connect with their guides outside of traditional meditation. Listening to music, dancing, even cooking could be a way for you to connect with them. The main thing to remember, in my opinion, is to just have fun with it! If you ever feel discouraged, which is normal and happens to myself at times, just try to remember that the way you are receiving messages, insight, or information, is the way that is best for you in this present moment. And if you’re having difficult seeing or hearing messages from your guides try asking them to be a bit more clear and obvious. Trust me, they’ll do their best to make sure you don’t miss them!
I hope you’ve all enjoyed this tale of mine, and I wish you all the best on your journey exploring your relationship with your own guides. It’s such an adventure!
Thank you all, as always, for your love and support. ❤
