That being said, unless you are clairvoyant or clairaudient (and even then) it can be hard to know they are around. Guides tend to speak in a whisper of metaphors and signs that if you aren’t looking, can be missed. Additionally, it can be easy to ask when bad things happen or when situations don’t play out the way you had hoped – “Where are you?”
I know that doubt and cynicism all too well. I have seen it. I have lived it.
Most recently I’ve watched a dear friend struggle through it. She had been through a rough patch. But through grit and hard work has gotten herself on a good path. She has a good, steady job. This job afforded her the ability to purchase a beautiful car that she’d always dreamed of. And most recently, she was able to purchase a home of her own.
The only thing missing from her life was love.
Her guides indicated through readings that it was coming. Additionally, she could feel it in every bone of her body.
Knowing the clearer you are with your guides, the easier it is to help you accomplish you goals. She and I discussed tips on how she could work with her guides. I encouraged her to make a list of all the qualities she desired in a partner. She did that. She was also encouraged to ask her guides for specific signs to let her know she was on the right path. She asked them to play a song whenever the person was near with the agreement that whenever she heard it, she would get in the car and go to the place that was in her head at the moment. She even asked her guides to help point the person out by having them wear a particular color.
Day by day she prayed to her guides and trusted them wholeheartedly. She went out of her comfort zone and followed the signs that her guides continued to give her. She also took the time to listen for them. She even learned the Tarot to enhance that connection.
She did everything she was asked to…. and yet, her person didn’t come in.
Finding herself in the same place she started, she came to me frustrated and angry. Doubt ran through her, and she indicated she felt like a fool and was having a hard time believing any of this was true.
At that moment I knew there is nothing I could say that could bring her peace. Words of encouragement and have faith only go so far. The proof really is in the pudding and the only thing could bring that is Time. Because, I truly believed her guides were still working on it.
A month later (and seven months after starting her search), she met her person. This individual was everything her guides said they’d be. Everything that was on her list. The song had played and there was a hint of the designated color. My friend’s guides did what they said they were going to. It just took longer than expected.
And when I saw her again, after she had met her person, she was smiling ear to ear telling me her frustration with her guides was a thing of the past. She now understood why it took the time it did – not everything was lined up sooner. After she began dating her person, she found out that they were not emotionally available at the time she started her search.
Hindsight is ALWAYS twenty twenty.
So next time you feel like getting down on your guides, try to have faith that they are working on it. And remember, that once they start plucking that the spider web there are many moving parts that need to be arranged that it just takes time.
So give them a break. Give yourself a break. And maybe a glass of wine!
