Useful Tools for Connecting
Sometimes we need a little extra guidance to help us in our daily life, especially when you feel overwhelmed or don’t know what to do. The activities mentioned in Part 2 will help of course, but there are also other tools you can use to help you gain clarity and receive input from spirit (inner self, universe).
These tools work by allowing your energy (you could see this as your higher consciousness) to give you messages, confirmation and direction that you find hard to connect to in daily life. This assistance can also come from your guides.
Ask – This may sound too simple but if you ask the universe or your guides to help you know what to do in a situation you might be surprised at the outcome. You don’t have to hear your guides or receive a specific message from someone who can channel them. You just need to listen to and trust your gut feelings about your choices or direction, pay attention to the little (or big) ‘coincidences’, and look at the opportunities that come your way.
Be open to all your options and try not to cling onto how you want things to happen if that is not life’s intention. It just makes it harder on you in the long-term. You’ll always receive support even if you’re not aware of it.
Taking the time to do some of the connecting activities from Part 2, such as meditating, will help you be open to this intuitive guidance.
Oracle cards – Depending on the deck you choose, oracle cards are good for guidance of a spiritual nature, advice on emotional issues, relationships or physical decision-making.
Pulling an oracle card can provide a message that is very relevant to what you are going through. It may help you clarify something, know what decision to make, or help you focus on the most important aspect of your situation. Your energy will bring the right message to you and the cards are a tool to do that.
Pendulum – The pendulum is another tool that uses your energy to help with guidance and decision-making. A pendulum gives you ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers to your questions.
Crystals – A very versatile tool, a crystal can be used to assist meditation, help you connect with nature, connect with the universe and can even be used as your pendulum or be the theme of you oracle card deck!
Crystals assist us because they have their own energetic vibration that works with our own energy. If your head is in the clouds and you find it hard to focus on your day-to-day activities a crystal such as smoky quartz can help ground you. An amethyst crystal can help facilitate your psychic connection, allowing you to receive guidance. Above all, crystals can connect you with energies that remind you that you are not just a physical person living in a mundane physical world.
Journal – Keeping a journal allows you to reflect on many aspects of your life. Writing your thoughts down can help you clarify things more easily than when all your thoughts are swimming around in your head. Ideas and inspirations also tend to come through when journaling and plans or goals can become clearer. Read my article, Journaling from the Soul.
So remember that you are more than a puppet in your life and by connecting with your spiritual self you’ll find more peace, perspective and guidance to assist you in your daily life.
