How to know if the messages are coming from your Guidance or your Ego? 

Have you ever wondered if you thoughts, your gut feeling, your hunches are the information and messages from your Higher Self and your Guides, or they might be just your ego talking…

How to tell the difference?

One big difference between the messages from your Ego and the messages from your Guidance (your Higher Self, your Spirit Guides, Angels and other Enlightened Beings) is that the messages from your Guidance are kind, loving, inspiring and solution oriented. If the messages you are receiving are self-abusive, fear-based, confusing, destructive, etc. you are dealing with your Ego. The messages come in the form of thoughts, feelings, dreams and visions…

How to switch from listening to our Ego, to listening to our true Guidance? 


First we need to relax and breathe with slow and deep breaths, breathing in and out of our tummy for 5 minutes. Then ask yourself if this what you are feeling or listening to is really yours or is it something that others have imprinted in your energy – try to discover where the negative thinking or feeling is coming from. Our body is our navigating system as well, so take time to listen to it. Listen to your heart and listen to your gut. Sometimes the warning or so called “red lights” come from your Guidance, but the messages will still be delivered in a kind and peaceful way.

When presented with one or more options and you need to choose, how to know you are choosing the right one?

  1. Centre yourself with breathing. Even in the midst of a tornado or cyclone, there is a calm space and light – right in the centre of it (The Eye), while all around it is chaos. Become “The Eye” for few minutes.
  2. Listen to your heart and gut.
  3. See and feel yourself in one situation, and then in the other. How does each situation feel? If you feel over excited, or you have a “knot” in your tummy, the situation is probably not right for you. If you feel calm (sometimes people think they feel almost numb, but it is actually peace what they are feeling), this is a very good sign that the situation or opportunity is the right one for you.

It is always nice to clear and enhance our communication channels by placing gemstones like Amethyst, Selenite, Rose Quartz or Moldavite in our energy field while meditating and communicating with our Guidance. For best results, clear the energy of your space with some White Sage, and/or burn essential oils like Frankincense, Palo Santo or Sandalwood while meditating.
