Receiving Guidance from the Universe

“Please don’t worry. I’ve got you.” ~ The Universe
What do you do when you have an unanswered question, or when you’re not sure which direction to take? How do you choose the best path when you’re confused or torn? In cases like these, it can help to know how to receive guidance from the Universe.
It is possible to ask for guidance from the Universe, and receive it, in a very clear fashion with very little frustration or worry. All it takes is a willingness to ask, and a willingness to let go.
For example, let’s say that you have a new job opportunity that has presented itself, but you’re not certain if you want to leave your current job. What do you do?
You simply ASK and LET GO. Sounds simple, right? Not so much…
Andrea Schulman, Life Coach and Blog writer shares her ideas on how to receive guidance from the Universe.
How do you ask and let go?
Simply throw the question up to the Universe. Don’t write a big list of pros and cons, don’t try to “figure it out.” Overthinking will probably only leave you frustrated and confused. After all, if you are confused about what to do, focusing on what to do is only going to amplify your confusion, thanks to the Law of Attraction (what you focus on…you bring to you).
It’s important to understand that making a good decision is all about aligning with it, and when we are frustrated or confused we are most certainly not aligned in the slightest.
So, instead of trying to think your way to the answer, say to yourself, “I’m going to let the Universe tell me which path to take, and I’m going to trust that I will know what I have to do when I have to do it.”
Then, drop the subject, and move on to something else. Simply let it go, and know that when the time was right the answer would come to me. Trust the Universe will bring you the answer you seek.
How does the Universe provide guidance?
When using this approach, you may get guidance in a number of ways. Sometimes, it’s just a sudden, intense knowing of what you are supposed to do. Other times, you will encounter people, situations or new information that convinces you of the right move. Still other times, one option will simply drop out of the picture, making your decision clear
In every case, the “right move” becomes abundantly clear, without your having to overthink it or worry about it.
The real trick to this process
Before trying this strategy out in your own life, it’s important to keep in mind that the real trick to this strategy is trust. (To Rely Upon Spirit Totally).
In order to receive quality guidance from the Universe, you have to fully surrender your question in faith that the answer will come. You have to be committed to allowing the Universe to tell you what the answer is. You cannot continue to harp on the question, and you cannot question the guidance. You simply ask, and allow the answer to come. This takes Trust – it may not automatically happen – it may take some time.
If you don’t trust that the Universe can bring you an answer, the Universe will not bring you a clear answer. You have to believe you are going to get the answer in order to get it. This, of course, is due again to the Law of Attraction. You only get what you believe you are going to get.
Start with low-risk
Because this strategy requires a great deal of trust in the Universe’s ability to guide you, start with small indecisions. Practice this strategy in a low-risk environment until you have built up confidence in the process.
For example, you can use this strategy to answer questions like “where is the best parking space at the mall?” or “where should I take my mother out to dinner?”
Get in the habit of throwing some of the easy questions out there for guidance before tackling some of life’s bigger queries (like “should I move across the country?” or “should I get a new puppy?”). Get comfortable with asking and letting go first.
So, the next time you have a decision in your life, consider asking the Universe for guidance.
Take some of the worry and stress out of your life, and allow the right moves to come to you. Remember, TRUST in the Universe…It has your back! Start small…and build as your Trust builds.
Give it a shot, and see how it works for you!
