Following your own inner guidance is something that I get asked about a lot at my workshops and during readings. Most people can sense that their angels are there but they get stuck with what is coming through. They also wonder are they really hearing them? It is very common to feel that it is you and not an angelic being talking to you. Don't worry you are hearing your angels, they are with you and giving you guidance.
The first thing I say to people is just relax, the more tense you are the harder it is to hear your angels. Take a few deep breaths and relax. The angels messages are very subtle, like a gentle breeze blowing through your hair or a song you hear on the radio. Very often people will say to me "I have asked the angels for help and I am feeling something but I'm not sure if its just me or if its my angels, am I just making it up? This is so common, I felt this too when I started out, I doubted myself.
It is very simple. The angels aren't going to come through and scare you with a loud booming voice or a huge apparition standing in front of you. They will come through very gently and this will be in the way of repetitive feelings, thoughts, visions or dreams and words you hear in your mind. This is the way they will communicate with you. One sense will be stronger than the other. A lot of people are Clairsentient which is Clear Feeling, they receive their guidance in the way of intuitive feelings, gut feelings in the stomach area, tinglings, goosebumps, a warm feeling in the heart etc. Pay attention to these feelings as this is your angels talking to you. I teach about this in my 'Connecting with your Angels' Workshop.
When I was a lot younger I didn't listen to my guidance and intuition and it didn't get me anywhere. In the end something would happen and it would be like a wake up call which would make me have to stop and really listen.
A few years ago I was driving home along a busy country road at night, it was dark and I was driving at around 70 miles an hour. I heard a voice in my head very clearly say 'slow down', it was so clear I had to listen and I did slow down. About ten seconds after I slowed down a deer ran straight in front of my car across the road. If I had not slowed down I would have hit it head on. After that experience I started to listen, I knew then that someone was looking out for me and was protecting me. This was the beginning of my journey to opening up to the angels and the energies around me. It was profound.
I had another experience a while ago that is an example of following my guidance. I was with my husband and young daughter and we were at a Sunday morning market in my local area, it was extremely busy. I had an errand to do first and said I would meet them at the produce stalls in ten minutes. When I got back to the market I couldn't see them anywhere. I looked around but they were nowhere to be seen. It was like looking for a needle in a haystack as the market was packed with people. I decided to ask my angels to help direct me to them. I looked one way and I got a very clear 'No', I looked the other way and I got a clear 'Yes its that way'. I followed the guidance and got to the next turning point and I got a 'Yes' that way again'. I walked a few seconds more and bingo there they were! The angels had guided me to them, thank you angels!
You can do this too, you can ask them for guidance and help as much as you want. Nothing is too big or small for them. All you have to do is ask. Don't worry if you feel you are missing their messages as the angels will repeat their guidance over and over again. You are never alone, angelic help is always there. And Trust what you get, it really is them.
