In my work as a shamanic healer and teacher, I connect to the wisdom of spirit teachers and power animals. These compassionate beings often share healing and guidance. One of the most frequent messages to come through is that they could be doing MUCH MORE to help us than we allow.
We humans are sometimes rather silly. We get the idea that we have to do it ourselves – that it’s somehow “cheating” to ask for help from Spirit. Or that a divine being like Archangel Michael must have more important things to do, so we don’t want to disturb them. So we struggle and toil. If instead we opened and allowed, our path would flow so much more smoothly. Challenges and growth opportunities would still arise, but we’d have the sense of being supported and held rather than feeling alone and isolated.
The spirit guides are delighted when we ask for assistance. Because we have free will, they need to be asked. Remember that old saying, “There is no such thing as a stupid question”? The same is true in this situation. There is no such thing as a stupid request. We can ask them for help with anything – from the most mundane to the most broad.
Where in your life right now are you struggling? What would you like to ask for assistance, clarity or healing for? How can you shift your perspective to allow your helping spirits to support you?
