Did you ever wish you had someone to give you answers that would make your day-to-day life a bit easier? Believe it or not, there is a way to instantly receive those answers. That way lies right within yourself!

I discovered this one stressful day when I had a to-do list about four pages long and I was stuck at a red light. I was trying to figure out the quickest route to the next task. If I turned right, I might get stuck in traffic. If I went straight, I might get stuck at more red lights.

Which route would save more time? The more I thought about it, the more stressed I felt. Then I heard a voice. It was my own.

So, I not only can communicate with the spiritual realm. I can communicate with myself–that is, the part of me that’s in the non-physical realm, my own “higher self.”

As I sat at that red light and pondered what had just happened, I thought of a conversation I’d recently had with a friend.

“Whenever I need to calm down after a stressful day at work, I purpousely take the long route home, and have to make frequent stops. It’s my moment of peace,” the friend said.

When my own red light turned green, I chose to go straight. As I stopped at every red light, I simply paused and took a deep breath. As I looked around, I saw people walking dogs. I noticed children playing. Many yards were filled with lush gardens and colorful pots of flowers. It was a beautiful day, but I was just noticing that.

When I arrived at home, a few minutes later possible, I felt a lot calmer.

Sadly, we’re not always able to work through stress, discomfort or grief by taking the longer route around. Sometimes it’s necessary to plow right through it. But even then, we can use all of the available resources, including the source of help we always have on hand–our gut instinct or intuition, our “higher self.”

We communicate with our higher self using the same means we use when connecting with a loved one who has passed on to the spiritual realm. We can communicate with anyone on this level, whether they’re living or dead. Be sure to include yourself in that!

Practicing self-care is part of living a life that’s spiritually awakened. It’s critical to develop spiritual connections with loved ones who have passed to help you relieve your grief. It’s just as important to connect with yourself in this way as you forge on after the death of a loved one.


Be honest: when did you last check in on yourself? Your surface feelings are probably pretty obvious to you. But discovering how you really feel deep down, and determining a way forward towards healing, may require deeper exploration.

Try this exercise. Find somewhere comfortable you can sit with no distractions. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Ask yourself, out loud, “What do I need?” When answering, don’t hesitate. And answer out loud.

When asking a question of ourselves, we usually come up witn an immediate answer. This is an instinctive answer. It’s immediate because our spiriutal reflexes are lightning-fast. Deep down inside, we know that the instinctive answer is correct.

But we usually don’t accept that instinctive answer at face value. We analyze it, dissect it and look for reasons not to trust our instinct. When learning to communicate on the spiritual level, it’s critical to develop the ability to trust our instincts.

So, what was your instinctive answer? Do you trust it, or is that something you need to work on?

The next time you’re stressed out, ask yourself out loud what you need to work through it. Answer out loud. And don’t forget my friend’s advice and take the long way home. That “wasted” time might prove to be the highlight of your day!
