For those looking for ways to connect with your guides better try and invite them in. Many would try to control the beings with them and around them. They would order them around or command them. This is not a powerful way to enlist help from outside of yourself. Instead invite the energies in to work with you. Welcome them in and their advice and information. This is a simple shift but a very powerful one.
We respond better when we sense the respect that is shown on all levels. Arguing with us or demanding things from us is not a show of respect. It is a show of those who wish to control and manipulate. We are trying to teach you to shift the paradigms to honor and respect. Start with respecting yourself and extend that to respecting your teams. How does that feel to you? It feels much better to us.
