This is offered, not only when you are feeling challenged by the way you are living your life and not sure of what direction to go in but simply wanting to talk. You would do this with another spiritual/like-minded person like myself on many various different topics.
It is guidance and support for a person to more fully experience their spiritual nature to bring an understanding when you are on a spiritual path.
In general, guidance works best through respect. The person giving advice is at "heart", really not that much different than the person asking for it.
Only, the Intuitive usually has had more experience about the topic being discussed.
The aim is to empower a person to further their growth towards recognising and becoming part of the larger experience that we call "life". Gaye has many years of personal and professional experiences and studies to help you, help yourself.
This guidance usually touches upon areas that are normally dealt with in personal psychology (such as relations, self-image, self-worth, habits and behaviours).
The major focus is upon aspects such as: faith, devotion, wisdom, compassion, spiritual techniques (eg. prayer and meditation), and spiritual experiences.
I understand what counselling is, but what does Spiritual guidance involve?
In spiritual guidance, the persons involved simply recognises that there is a Higher Force which assists all in their efforts, regardless of race, creed or name given to this Higher Force.
This may seem to be a trivial recognition initially, but by the recognition of a Higher Force, in whatever way the person feels it appropriate to interpret or understand this, the ego, which is where so many of our problems come from, is subdued to some degree.
Then we can begin to access more intelligent, more helpful parts of ourselves. Another very important aspect of spiritual counselling is the way this Higher Force is encouraged to be sought for inner support at times of great struggle.
Spiritual guidance also gives us a greater purpose to improving who we are and our outlook on life. This sense of purpose varies from person to person. In essence it involves our strivings and efforts to improve who and what we are being not only for ourselves, but for the benefit of the greater world around us.
When stepping into something new, it is a good idea to know how the Intuitive operates. As a beginning to this, my philosophy is that each person has the answers they need inside themselves. It is the inability to access and then act upon these insights that plagues us so. Probably most importantly is the way I feel people need to be taught what to do, not just be passively told what is happening each time and given a proposed solution.
One of my favourite sayings is: “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” is a quote from the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu
Through spiritual guidance many difficult situations in life, whether current or in our past, can be effectively dealt with. Attitudes we are not happy with can be transformed. Emotional patterns, no matter how ingrained they may seem, can be altered. Mental fixations can be altered.
This allows us to move on to more constructive and rewarding scenarios in our lives and gives us a healthy start to coming into a greater fulfilment of whom and what we truly are. All we need to do is to really want to change. This want to change is the single, most fundamental key to real changes within ourselves. There is such a big difference to thinking we want to or "should" change - versus really feeling we want to change.
