How to Receive Guidance From the Universe
by Andrea Schulman
I’ve found that it is possible to ask for guidance from the universe, and receive it, in a very clear fashion with very little frustration or worry on my part. All it takes is a willingness to ask, and a willingness to let go.
For example, let’s say that I have a new job opportunity that has presented itself, but I’m not certain if I want to leave my current job jet.
What do I do? I ask, and I let go.
How do you ask and let go?
If it were me, I’d simply throw the question up to the universe. I wouldn’t write a big list of pros and cons, I wouldn’t try to “figure it out.” Overthinking will probably only leave me frustrated and confused. After all, if I am confused about what to do, focusing on what to do is only going to amplify my confusion, thanks to the Law of Attraction.
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.
How does the universe provide guidance? When I use this approach I get guidance in a number of ways. Sometimes, it’s just a sudden, intense knowing of what I am supposed to do. Other times, I will encounter people, situations or new information that convinces me of the right move. Still other times, one option will simply drop out of the picture, making my selection for me entirely.
In every case, the “right move” becomes abundantly clear, without my 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.
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.
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
So because this strategy requires a great deal of trust in the universe’s ability to guide you, I recommend that you start with small indecisions. Practice this strategy in a low-risk environment until you have build up confidence in the process.
For example, you can use this strategy to answer questions like “what should I get my husband for his birthday?” 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 ask my girlfriend to marry me?”). Get comfortable with asking and letting go first.
