Calling Dreams

 

Spiritual Message:

Stop telling yourself that there is no time for dreaming. I want you to remember that there is always something beautiful to be found, no matter how dark and dismal things may seem. You have to know that dreams can come alive in the dark.

If you have been working toward a goal or dreaming up some huge, crazy thing, then get ready because dreams are about to come true. It is your right to have everything you want. All the things that build you up, that make you feel whole, spiritual and vibrant are meant to be yours.

Do not deny yourself of your dreams!

Happiness is not somewhere in the distance. Respect your path and your spirit, and honor the wisdom that lives inside of you. When you embrace the inner callings of your soul, you open a treasure trove of possibilities.

What has been on your mind will now come into you life… so stop the worries! What you give your energy to is a request to the Universe to bring that vibration into your life. So bring only goodness in.

Begin to rejoice in the present moment as possibilities are in the process of becoming reality. Keep calling to your dreams and they will float softly to you. Now is the time and you have all the magic in the universe at your fingertips.

Affirm: “I can dream my biggest dreams, and I have the right to attain everyone of them. Each day I wake, a new dream is made reality…. And I am grateful for it!”

All the best,

Shaheen

 

What Are Spirit Guides?

Everyone has a collective of celestial helpers waiting to by their side. These are your spirit guides, and they are waiting patiently to help you. Sadly, some people never learn to consciously connect with their guides, but here is some information to introduce you to who they are and what they do!

What are Spirit Guides?

  • A spirit guides is a discarnate entity that’s sole purpose is to aide you on your life path.  You and your guide made a soul level contract before incarnation that they would watch over, guide and protect you, as well as disperse spiritual insights and synchronicities into your life.
  • Your spirit guide has a unique understanding of you and the path that you have laid out for yourself. Often they work with you when you create your spiritual map. They have a vantage point from which they guide you because they are able to see your map clearly and they can view the “bigger” picture of our journey.
  • Your spirit guide is your souls assistant working behind the scenes. Whether you are aware of them, they constantly watch over, protect and guide you.

Does everyone have a spirit guide?

  • Absolutely everyone has a spirit guide. Some may argue that there are people who do not have guides, but as far as I have seen we all do. No matter what your religious background or beliefs are, even if you do not believe in God, you still have a guide.
  • We have a primary guide, who has incarnated at least once. The reason being is so that they have empathy about our journey here on earth. Now if you do not believe in incarnation or that whole philosophy it doesn’t negate the idea of a spirit guide. We also have a secondary guide or guides that can walk into your lives at key points bringing us more specialized guidance. For example: If you are beginning to explore a new career path and you are very passionate about it, but not very confidant you may have a secondary guide who steps in and helps you in this area. They are specialty guides.

How can I recognize the presence of my spirit guide?

  • Any time you are stressed or undergoing extreme changes in your life a spirit guide will be more dominant in your life. Their purpose is to help you with the difficult areas of your journey, so when times are tough remember that they are there.
  • It is common for people to hear their name being called, when no one is around. Usually your guides are trying to get your attention.
  • You may see flashing lights, often blue or white. Maybe even shadows or silhouettes out of the corner of your eye.
  • Reoccurring dreams, especially of a stranger whom you feel comfortable with.
  • A unique fascination with a name or geographical place, which is often connected to the name or ethnicity of your guide.
  • Some sort of reoccurring symbol. Such as numbers, letters, motifs, etc.
  • Physical sensations. Often the feeling of being touched on a shoulder or hand or someone standing near you to one side or the other.

How can I know my guides name and what they look like?

  • Most people like to know the name of their guide first. There are many ways to get the name of your guide. Basically you can ask, “What is your name?” and then wait to see which name pops into your head first, or which names stands out to you (the next person you meet, a billboard, song on the radio or it may be written on a piece of paper). You can also use a baby name book and open a page at random and select a name by pointing with your eyes closed. Or the other way is to use a name that you feel drawn to.
  • People often want to know how their guides look or what their sex is before they connect with them. My answer to this is 1) they may appear in whatever form they wish. As an animal, ball of light or a physical person. Your primary guide will typically take the form of a human. Meditation is key in finding out what they look like or you may have a dream or vision or you could ask a reader. 2) You can ask them to appear in a certain form because your guide will do whatever it takes to work with you in your comfort zone.

How can I easily speak to my guide?

  • The simplest way to speak with your guide is by talking out loud to them. Your guide will find some way to communicate back with you. This could be through symbols, visions, dreams, songs, verbal communication, feelings, television programs or other people. They will find the best way to communicate with you if you just trust.
  • Using an oracle deck is an easy and powerful way to communicate with them.
  • Write letters to them or leave little messages posted around your home or office.
  • Mediate. You can do this through a guided meditation or by simply being still for a few minutes a day.
  • Creativity and art. They are drawn to creativity and they love to inspire us. Inspiration comes from the word spirit!

A few more things

  • Angels and spirit guides are not the same. Typically your spirit guide is not a loved one who passed. These are three different types of entities.
  • Your guides have far more ability to help you when you ASK for them to help!
  • Spirit guides do not control any aspect of your life; they only offer you help and guidance. You have free will at all times. You may even ask for certain aspects of your life to be inaccessible to your guides if you like.
  • They are not all knowing. They have more insight into our life because they are watching outside of it and they can connect with our subconscious mind which is far wiser and our map.
  • Guides are never negative, harmful, pushy, controlling or frightening.
  • They know when to turn their heads if you know what I mean, but they are never truly absent.
  • They truly are your bestfriends. When you begin to connect with them, it should be more like a reunion, rather than a first encounter.

This information is only a small portion of what can be written about the subject. I’ve only pulled out the basics to get you started so that you can begin working with and calling on your guides.  Once you’ve read this you can begin enriching your life by consciously connecting with them.

Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions that you may have about this subject. If there is anything that I can elaborate on or any confusion I may clear up, I would be more than happy to.  And I would love to hear any stories you may have about working with your guides. What was your first encounter like? Do you remember the first time you consciously worked with your guide?

10 Ways You’re Making Your Life Harder Than It Has To Be

Shaheen Miro:

Love this so much! Great advice and wisdom. Stay in motion lovely people… and align yourself with the GOOD STUFF!!

Originally posted on Thought Catalog:

1. You ascribe intent.

Another driver cut you off. Your friend never texted you back. Your co-worker went to lunch without you. Everyone can find a reason to be offended on a steady basis. So what caused you to be offended? You assigned bad intent to these otherwise innocuous actions. You took it as a personal affront, a slap in the face.

Happy people do not do this. They don’t take things personally. They don’t ascribe intent to the unintentional actions of others.

2. You’re the star of your own movie.

It is little wonder that you believe the world revolves around you. After all, you have been at the very center of every experience you have ever had.

You are the star of your own movie. You wrote the script. You know how you want it to unfold. You even know how you want it to…

How Important is it to Make Time for Stillness?

Tapping into your intuition and following your psychic nudges begins with stillness! As we are creating sacred space in our lives it becomes more and more important to stop and listen… listen to the voice inside of your, the dialogue running through your head, and the worn-out thoughts, beliefs and ideas you are replaying.

Do you ever feel completely overwhelmed, even frustrated by the amount of things running through your head. I know I experience this feeling of exhaustion from time to time… sometimes its brought on with good intentions. I am sitting there just channeling some sort of creative idea or inspiration and then I keel over in defeat because the amount of energy it takes to think about it all is so overwhelming… and then I remember… stillness!

You will never really hear all the beautiful things your spirit is trying to tell you until you stop and listen!

So many of us want answers about our lives. We are wondering what’s next. Where we are going. How life is going to be. How we are going to solve our problems. Fix our mistakes. Right our wrongs. Or achieve our dreams.

You know you’ve been asking the Universe these big questions. Talk, talk, talk… now listen!

The Universe can never solve your problems if you don’t shut up and listen!

Sometimes the answers are subtle; sometimes they are loud and clear. Sometimes they will be spelled out for you. You may get hit with a sudden feeling of inspiration. You may hear a song, or a phrase that just hits the spot.

These things come when you make space for them.

A few ways you can do this:

  1. Spend a few minutes daily in meditation. This can be done before you begin your day, or just when you end it.
  1. Prayer is often us asking for guidance, but the heart of prayer… the real secret is to stop and listen. When feelings do you get. What vibration is firing through you as you are communicating with the Divine?
  1. It’s all about staying in motion. Feel yourself move, feel your body. Get out of your head and. Let your mind, body and spirit connect through exercise, yoga or even a long walk. I love doing yoga because I have to be present when I am in a pose. I have to listen to my body and my breath. Usually the places where I hold tension in my body give me insight into where I am being rigid in my life. 
  1. Enjoy a warm cup of tea. Let yourself smell all the lovely aromas, and feel the steam open up your head. Take a sip and swirl the liquid around your tongue. Actually taste the tea (or whatever you’re drinking). This will allow you to be present, to observe whatever is happening in that moment. And it’s so soothing!
  1. Take a nice long bath and let the tension of your day melt from your body. Don’t rush or worry. You are in this moment relaxing. Let the steam and the bubbles and all the delicious scents clear your head and heart. Sing and smile and close your eyes. Some of the best revelations come in a warm bath. 
  1. Spend more times with your pets. These spirit babies are gifts from the Universe sent here to add unconditional love and understanding to your life. They help to transmute negative energy and turn into in to positive and productive energy. When you connect with the pure feelings of love you link into your intuitive self.
  1. Take time to listen to good, uplifting music. Let the word and sounds enter you. Sing along or just close your eyes and drift away. Music isn’t meant to be background noise. It’s meant to be a doorway to another world where you can feel and experience something inside of your, or something more expansive than you. Open up and let go for a while.

As you move through the levels of stillness you are creating internal sacred space. Giving yourself this space allows you to tap into all of your wisdom. This is really the heart of spirituality. Finding center and learning to live from that place is the most pure intention.

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleaning and Protection: When Should You Spiritually Cleanse Your Home?

Spiritual hygiene feeds into the energetic story you are telling. If you practice good spiritual hygiene, you will add positive energy and abundance to your life. Paths will begin to open, and opportunities will fall in your life.

But spiritual cleansing is for more than just your body… it is for your home as well! Creating a high vibration in the home will add to your overall experience. Your home is a reflection of you. If you take care if it, then it will take care of you!

When should you spiritually cleanse your home?

1. When you first move in.

Whenever you first move into a space you should spiritually cleanse it. You should bless the space and remove any negative or stagnant energy that may be lingering in the space. Previous residents will leave their unique vibration on the space, and that vibration may not feed into the experience you are trying to have. Shifting this energy, and clearing the slate will empower you and the life you are beginning to lead in the new space.

2. When there is a fight or altercation.

It is especially important to clear the air after an intense fight or argument. Altercations in the home taint the atmosphere and leave an imprint on the delicate energy field that surrounds your home. If this is left unattended it can grow into a powerful force that influences your mood, and the interactions you have in the space. Do you have a room, or space in your home that always seems to instigate a fight? It’s time to clear the air!

3. When Tragedy has struck.

If there has been a tragedy in the home you should absolutely perform a cleansing. This will help to move the healing process along faster. A tragedy could be anything from a loss of a loved one, to a financial set back. Adding this positive vibration to the mix will ensure that you make it through trying times with grace.

4. When changes are being made.

Any time you are making change in the home such as construction, or moving things around, or downsizing you should perform some small act of cleansing. This will help things settle and patch up any psychic holes that may ensue from moving things around. Energy is like dust. If things are ruffled up… forgotten energies may show up!

5. When someone moves in or moves out.

Always, always, always do a cleansing when someone moves in or out of the space. This will help their energetic thumbprint align with, or disconnect from the space. Remember, your home is a living energetic being just like you. Everything in the space, or that comes in contact with the space weaves into the energetic structure. Sometimes adding or taking something away will shake things up and cause a feeling of chaos. This usually settles in time, but with a little spiritual cleansing, things will equalize much faster.

6. After illness has been in the household.

Illness vibrates at a low level. When illness falls upon your home it will weaken the vibration and pull things downward. To counteract this you should lift the spirits of the space. This often helps the healing process along faster. This can be a major illness, or a minor cold!

7. When someone dies.

Again, when someone leaves/dies you want to disconnect their energy from the energetic vibration of the space. Don’t fear that you are forgetting about them, or keeping their spirit from visiting… this process helps to bring healing to the space and the people the live in it. When we are grieving there is a need to look forward. If you keep yourself in old worn-out energy patterns you begin limiting yourself, and giving away abundant energy that could be invested in more important dreams and goals.

8. After the winter.

Winter is time of rest and recuperation. Though it can turn into stagnation. The energy in your home will begin to get stuffy and cluttered though the winter. Doing a major “energetic” spring-cleaning will propel things forward into full bloom! Where do you think spring-cleaning came from! Out with the old and in with the new!

Stay tuned for more tips on spiritual cleanings in the home! We will learn more about creating beautiful sacred space!
