An Inner Guidance Example: A Friend Follows Through With His Inner Guidance

Share this

Have you ever followed through with your inner guidance and something amazing happened as a result? In my last blog post I promised to share what happened to a friend of mine within a month of reading my first book, What Everyone Believed: A Memoir of Intuition and Awakening. I want to share this example with you to demonstrate the power of learning by example, the power of the “copy-cat” approach–as opposed to the learning of theory. But first, let me summarize the how-to (the method) for connecting and integrating with your higher self:

How To Connect With Your Higher Self

  1. Cultivate a relationship with your higher self (using quiet time in contemplation, daily meditation, taking a minute or two to “check in,” to focus on your sacred space several times a day)
  2. Learn to recognize and distinguish your inner guidance from your mental conditionings, your wants and outside influences
  3. Ask your higher self for guidance (e.g. ask specific questions, ask for clear guidance)
  4. Follow through on the guidance promptly and consistently (this part might require a bit of faith and courage at first)
  5. See what happens as a result, and begin to put the “puzzle pieces” together one by one

Don’t worry about step number 5 as this “synthesis” is done automatically. (Your mind will get it automatically. You will begin to see the bigger picture automatically.)

By following the steps above, you will discover who you really are and what you’re truly capable of. You will discover your unique contribution, your potential, your unique gift that you are to share with the world. The method described above is the best way to teach yourself, to discover all these things, as well as the best way to do the “emotional clearing” work (“energy clearing” work) that we’re all being asked to do right now as part of the shift in consciousness on this planet.

How long will all this take? That depends on your higher self’s plan. However, it doesn’t have to take long to achieve some results so that you’re encouraged to continue on this path. The following is a real-life example of what happened to a friend of mine within a month of reading my first book, What Everyone Believed: A Memoir of Intuition and Awakening.

A Friend Follows Through With His Inner Guidance

Inner Guidance Example
Bear Valley, CA

G. is a parent at my younger daughter’s school and works hard as a deck builder for homeowners in Silicon Valley. Years ago, G. had given up on his dream to own a vacation home in the Sierra foothills because he knew he couldn’t afford one. But after reading my book, he planned a camping trip to Bear Valley with his family…and visited a realtor while there.

The realtor informed G.’s family that there weren’t any properties available within their budget. But as they left the realtor’s office, G.’s inner guidance told him to look around on his own. They drove around…and came across a house with a “Sale Pending” sign on the front lawn. G.’s inner guidance told him to get out of the car and look around. He listened, even though it didn’t make any sense to him.

The property seemed perfect, everything G. and his family could have hoped for. G. knocked on the door and introduced himself to the owner, who welcomed them in and explained that despite what the sign said, the house was up for sale again. He explained that the deal had fallen through earlier that day, which put him in a terrible bind. (He had just bought a house in Oregon.) “Make me an offer,” he told G.

G. and his wife made an offer that was considerably below the owner’s asking price. “I can’t give you what you want for this house,” G. told the owner, “but I can give you my word I’m good for this much.”

The owner accepted G.’s offer. The following week G. and his wife found a mortgage with good terms. Then while working on a deck for a client, G. was offered a Viking stove, dishes, pots and pans, appliances, almost everything he needed to furnish his new kitchen…because he happened to mention that he had just bought a new vacation home. (And G.’s client just happened to be remodeling her kitchen at the time.) Then a friend of G.’s called to say that he was moving and needed to sell his furniture. So G. was able to furnish most of his vacation home for about five hundred dollars.

All this happened within one month of reading my book. G. told me that he attributes everything that happened to his feeling “in tune with himself” after reading my memoir.

This wonderful example happened a few years ago, but I spoke to G. about a month ago and he and his family are doing well…and enjoying their vacation home in the Sierras.

As you begin to see the results from following through with your own inner guidance (favorable synchronicities, new insights, “signs” from the universe, a sense of greater cooperation in life, etc.), your confidence and trust in your higher self (and in divine plan) will grow. It will continue to grow until you begin to trust your higher self more than anything or anyone outside of yourself. Having this kind of trust in your higher self will help you make huge strides in your personal development and in your unique contribution to your family and your community–which will help bring about the “Golden Age” much more quickly. This is the Divine Plan.

Look, your higher self wants you to learn to trust your inner guidance so that you fulfill your higher purpose here, so that you fulfill your potential. This is why more often than not, you will be richly rewarded when you follow through with your inner guidance. (It motivates you to keep going.) So then…are you finally ready to connect with your higher self and follow through with your inner guidance?

    Wow. This blog post is spot on. A similar occurrence happened to me as well (within the same week of reading your book) that shifted my path so quickly onto a journey of personal growth and enlightenment and I will always remember your book as the catalyst that sparked it all for me. Thank you for this work and especially for sharing it with others. I look forward to what 2012 has yet to offer!

    Thank you so much for your blog. I am just starting to try to connect with my higher self. It can indeed be difficult to distinguish between my wants and conditioned thinking and inner guidance. I have had some aha moments which are truly inspiring and I am learning to trust more in my intuition. I have also noticed others. By that I mean , noticing what they say, what they put their attention on and what the results are. I have a grandson who was complaining about his job, how he really didn’t like it and that his rent was going up etc. etc. He was back at school in his last year to be a trade jouneyman. When he finished, his boss had hired 2 people in his absence and his landlord stopped by to say they had decided not to rent out the property any more. So we will see what oportunities are opening for him and where he goes from here. Thank you again for your inspiration,information and care. I, as well, look forward to what 2012 has in store!

      Thanks Liz! Yes, it looks like your grandson has another path to pursue. When one door closes, we need to find another door that’s opening up.

    I have found that small miracles happen to me so often now that I don’t write them down anymore. I follow the promptings I get and within minutes or the next day, something happens that just blesses what I followed. Things like, changing an appointment, and then someone calls and invites me to a lecture I want to hear at the time the appointment WAS. Or getting the prompting to stop by the mall (to which I haven’t been in months) and what I needed just “happened” to be on sale. Following promptings from my higher self have always saved me time, or money or energy. Thank you for your time and efforts, and your blog is much better than your articles.

      Thanks Charli!! When you’re doing your higher purpose the synchronicities (sometimes they’re big, sometimes they’re small) will happen daily. This really shows you that you’re on the right path. Your examples really confirm my experience. Just last week I was prompted to go to Marshall’s while I was food shopping at Trader Joe’s nearby. I found great volleyball shorts at less than half the going price for my younger daughter–and those are almost never found on sale! (She loves them, too.) And I’m glad you prefer my blog! With my blog I have a lot more freedom about what I can write.
