LGS #97: When You Cannot Access Guidance, Part 1: Tune Your Instrument

One of my readers asked: “What does a person who wants to take guidance-based action do when they can’t be sure they are clear? And they are not likely to get clear in the near future? Sitting on the edge of the pool until adult-swim is over is not an option.”

Since I am addressing all of you, I will answer generally. I will work up to addressing how to find proceed when we are seriously compromised and none of the usual interventions work.

When you are not sure you are clear, you might want to present your body and emotions with a series of tests, challenges, or checks to determine the source of interference. Getting ourselves clear is like tuning your instrument. Your body and energy are your instrument.

First check in with yourself to make sure you have had enough sleep, protein, and water. Low blood sugar or dehydration interfere significantly with clarity. If you are compromised, wait until you handle your basic needs before trying to access guidance.DSC_0379

Next consider whether or not you have been exposed to toxins or allergens. Toxins talk. They don’t have anything nice to say either! Exposure to toxins or allergens creates inflammation, which gets into the brain as well and compromises brain function. Try avoiding all potential allergens and chemical exposure when you need to get clear.

Emotional interference is important but difficult to address. Disentangling convoluted webs of self-sabotage and mixed motivations is advanced and complicated work. I cannot cover it here in total, but here are some places to start:

If you do muscle testing on yourself or another binary form of testing, make sure you are strong in response to the following statements. If you do not use testing, pay careful attention to your body and energy signals as you ask yourself the questions. You will notice that you contract, hold your breath, freeze up, or want to fidget when you are not congruent with a particular statement. Try these:

  • “I am willing to get clear guidance.”
  • “I am willing to be willing to get clear guidance.”
  • “I am willing to get clear guidance about my health.”
“I am willing to be willing to get clear guidance about my health.”
  • “I am unwilling to get inaccurate guidance about my health.”
  • “I am willing to be aware of all factors that may interfere with my health.”

You may need to ad-lib here to get to your exact issue. Try exchanging the word “safe” for the word “willing.” Also try “I have permission to,” and “deserve to. . . .”

Weakness in response to any of these questions indicates lack of congruence–inner conflict. Any lack of congruence represents active interference with, in this example, health. Inner conflict, which is often unconscious, will express itself in:

  • Making what is bad for you seem good
  • Making what is bad for you seem terribly appealing
  • Making what is good for you seem wrong or annoying
  • Blanking out or forgetting and doing things that don’t work for you
  • Feeling resistant to what you know you need
  • Making excuses or rationalizing ‘why’ you cannot do what you need to do
  • Seeking out friends or so-called experts who support misinformation that keeps you stuck or sick
  • Using someone, like a spouse, as a ‘reason’ you cannot do what you need
  • Setting clear intentions and then doing something else instead
  • Forgetting about what you decided to do

As you identify active patterns you need to find a way to clear them.

  • First: See them clearly. Pay attention to how they operate in you, without judging.
  • Second: Seek to understand and accept the feelings and needs involved with these patterns.
  • Third: If you can, use some type of energy-based therapy or technique to clear the related energy to make change easier, like EFT, Thoughtfield Therapy, Blindspot Technique, EMDR, etc. If you do not know how, just think about the patterns and flood yourself with clear light and positive energy, asking to release them.

Almost everyone benefits from assistance with this type of process. If you have significant underlying trauma or illness, or cannot trust yourself, getting help is essential.

Which part of this process do YOU find the most challenging?

What is it about this step that trips you up?
