Jeninacide has a question about communicating with her spirit guides. She says, “Sometimes I feel like they are right there waiting to answer but I can’t quite communicate with them yet.  Are they really there?  Do I need to listen more?  Do I need to listen better?  I feel like I am almost there–but not quite.”

The fact that you feel them there is your truth my dear.  They are there.  And the listening isn’t something you need to try harder; you need to try less.  Give them an unconscious task: ask them for a sign.  This is something every guide is thrilled to do, to create a path of conversation between the two.  It helps their job a great deal and helps yours as well.  Do not be afraid of this.  They are not there to watch you.  It’s about nothing except your spiritual growth.

Ask them to present something.  It doesn’t really matter what it is.  Why, the little one I speak to when she was very young asked for the sign of a butterfly.   Let a butterfly come or some thing that has meaning only to you.  And you set this task for them that they let you know they be there—then just sit back and wait.  It’s not a lot of work.  To hear them in time is just to simply relax and trust and welcome the warmth of their being.  You’re feeling it already my dear one.

Oh there are some that will work out channeling; there are some that will evolve to writing the question and receiving the answer.  There are some that will go into a place of books and a book will be present and they will open it to the words   they need to receive.

You will seek out your way of communication my dear and it will be yours and yours alone.  As unique as you are, so will be your way of communicating with them.

Sometimes we’re actually waiting to hear words.

And some people do, but usually it’s only under great frustration on the part of the entity trying to communicate.  And if you do hear a word very loudly, I would say: listen.

And what about dreams?

Dreams are most often playing out of many things that perhaps are bothering the conscious mind and it filters through to the subconscious area of the brain.   .  They are ways of playing over and trying to decide what is right or choices that need to be made, or how you would react in certain instances.  Remember in a dream each being is the creation of the dreamer.

There is a time though, before dreams—just before sleep and just before waking,  before you go into the deep wavelengths where the healing happens in the brain and the healing thoughts are there.  This is a receptive time, sometimes called a twilight time.  This is often a time when you can receive information.  And if you choose to and make it clear that you want to remember this, you can often get up and write it down.  Or write a question as you go of to sleep and then remember the answer.  Most times you don’t remember these communications but you’ll have a knowing about it.

Yes I’ve experienced that.  Sometimes I just get a glimpse of something and then it’s gone before I can put word to it. 

But you have absorbed it.  It isn’t meant for your conscious mind; it is meant for your spirit.
