This month I have been participating on an instagram challenge to connect with one of my Spirit Guides. The challenge is hosted by Julia of Spiral Sea Tarot.
It has been a very interesting challenge with a lot of synchronicity. A few weeks before the challenge I purchased a deck that had picked my interest. It was the Stretch Tarot by J.E. Stretch. I bought it on a whim, even though it was coming from out of the country. When I received it it looked kind of weird and I questioned why I had even purchased it. Some of the cards gave me the heebeegeebees. So I put it away until I was ready to do a card reading.
One night I was laying awake in bed. I had been reading about other people who connected with Spirit Guides. I never felt an interest in doing that, I didn’t think I had any to connect with. But that night I felt curious about the subject. I looked for a spread and found one online from Daily Tarot Girl, I pulled out the Stretch Tarot and did my reading. I got a very powerful message from it, pictured below.
Around that time I was just rekindling an interest in the Akashic Records too, and a few days after my first Spirit Guide reading I found out about the challenge that Julia was doing. It all seemed to fall into place and just at the right time.
The challenge started on June 1st. The first card I pulled was The Fool, which is one of the cards I had pulled in the reading above. This told me that it was the same guide I had first tried to connect to. Then I started to realize that perhaps this guide had influenced me or guided me to purchase this deck. Perhaps the creator of this tarot deck and I had this same guide in common.
Julia the creator of the challenge has been great at providing guidance and suggestions of how to connect with our guides. She has a great e-book that describes this in more detail on her website,which she’s kindly giving away for free. According to Julia’s system my guide was an Ascended Master. I have no experience working with Ascended Masters and I am looking forward to learning more.
I feel like there is still a lot to know about my guide. Some people assigned or perceived a gender in their guide, my guide doesn’t conform to gender norms. Also I tried to ask for a name, and I just remembered that a while back I received a message that my guide did not want me to be aware of who they were during their life on earth because that would interfere with my learning. So I probably will not get a name.
We are more than half way through the month and I can say this challenge has been very insightful for me. Not only am I connecting with one of my teachers, I’m also being more open to seeing signs and synchronicity in my everyday life, something that I didn’t do much of before.
Have you connected with your spirit guides before? How was that experience for you? I’d love to read your responses in the comments!
