How to ask for inner guidance

Be your own Guru

Referring to this article:

“Gurus are all saying different things” – Who should I believe, who is right?

“How do you listen to yourself if you have never done that before?”

I’ve written a lot about how to go within and ask for guidance so I’m just going to share the essence of it now (which is all you need, it’s not complicated at all) and give you a few links that will direct you to even more clarity.

Here’s a post that will help you become more aware of the subtle nudges the universe sends you and have always been sending you throughout your life:

Follow Your Impulses To Live a Grander Life 

Here’s a list with ten things regarding intuition and the importance of listening to it and how to get in touch with it:

Meditation and Intuition: How To Receive Answers

Journaling and writing is an excellent way to receive answers and guidance.

A silent retreat is massively beneficial for connecting with yourself and Life, and I highly, highly recommend it:

DIY Silent Retreat 

Okay, that should get you started! 🙂

But as I said, it’s not complicated, all you need is sincerity and honesty (with yourself).

5 steps to listen to the higher wisdom within you:

All you really need to do to listen to yourself and communicate with Life, the universe, is simply to do this:

1.) Intend that you want growth and progress, expansion, higher knowing, or something like that.

You want to grow and further your life and move forward. That’s the intention.

2.) Speak/write freely from your heart and say everything that’s on your mind (don’t hold back, let it all out).

Communicate like you’re speaking to your very best friend (who happens to be all-knowing!:)

Say you want guidance and clear direction (ask for it).

3.) Get quiet/still and sit in that silence for a few moments.

After a few moments you can begin to ask (quietly to yourself/Life) whatever questions you’d like to have answers to.

Here’s a few suggestions:

  • “What is important that I know or understand about my life right now?”
  • “What is the next right move?”
  • “What is the next right actions for me to take?”
  • “What is mine to do, if anything?”
  • “What is the best way for me to use this day?”
  • “What new influences do I need?”
  • “What is the next direction?”
  • “What new inspiration/knowledge do I need?”
  • “Is there something I would benefit from knowing/being aware of?”
  • “Is there something I’ve been ignoring or not ‘getting’, if so what is that?”
  • “What do I need to let go of?”
  • “What do I need to embrace/realize?”
  • “What is the Truth that needs to be spoken/understood/realized?”
  • “What is Life telling me?”
  • “Is there any other question I would benefit from asking?”

4.) Sit in meditation when you’re done with the talking and asking.

Sometimes a few minutes is enough, sometimes a longer meditation is more appropriate.

You have to feel into this yourself and do what feels right for you, but I would recommend 20 minutes to start with if you’re new to this.

5.) Say Thank You when you’re done and get up and do something completely unrelated to your questions and meditation.

You can do anything that creates a ‘break’ from the meditation (= you let the questions go, you release them to the higher power within you/Life/the universe), like for example gardening, go for a walk, listen to music or watch a funny movie.

Something that is unrelated to your meditation and the things you asked about.

That’s it!

Now Life has the ball.

You can end your meditation by saying something like this:

“Now I have said and asked everything I needed to ask so now the ball is in your court. Whatever happens next is a sign or direction from you and I will trust it and do what I’m guided to do without hesitation”.

It will always feel right.

It can be a nudge, feeling, or clear sign of some kind, but whatever it is, it has a feeling of rightness about it.

If it doesn’t feel right, it’s the ego trying to get you off path.

It should always feel right and true to you.

“Right” does not necessarily mean “good” as you might have to make a decision that is not easy, like for example letting go of a person, habit/crutch, or situation (or teaching, Guru, whatever it may be).

If you’re unsure, do a new meditation about that specifically (although doubt usually means “don’t”, but to know this you need to know the difference between true doubt and doubt of the ego).

Always consult within, and the more you do this, the communication will become more and more clear and begin to flow automatically and instantly all the time.

Connecting and spending time in nature is always good.
Spending time in nature is always good, it’s our greatest teacher. Stillness and nature always helps you get in touch and connected with yourself and Truth.

The feeling of peace and freedom is priceless

This feeling of peace and freedom is priceless. Maria is beyond amazing. Had I not experienced it myself, I would probably not believe it. I recommend anyone who is trying hard to be truly free and really start walking down the path of self fulfillment and happiness to book a session with her.

More transformational than any other thing that I’ve tried

I highly recommend Maria! I don’t even recognize the person who started working with her a few months ago. Maria clearly sees what is blocking, stopping or limiting you. Working with her has been more transformational than any other thing that I’ve tried. Thank you Maria!

I’ve never had a conversation like that before

I just wanted to say thank you so much again for our session yesterday, I’ve never had a conversation like that before and it was truly amazing. I could feel weight lifted as we were talking and for the first time my mind did not try to make sense of things, it was all truly felt in the heart space.

My life has radically changed

I finally know my worth. I feel so different now, I feel lighter, happier and more self confident. I treasure the time I spend talking with Maria and look forward to my sessions with her. There has been big changes in my life, synchronicities showing up like magic and I’m constantly blown away at the business and opportunities that I’m attracting. My life has radically changed for the better after I met Maria.

I have clicked into place with myself

It was more than I could ever hoped for or expected

I feel like a huge weight have been lifted and I have so much more perspective on what I have been struggling with!

Her unique ability to read your state helped me to breakthrough

I’ve had HUGE shifts in my beliefs. Her undivided attention, presence and unique ability to read your state helped me to breakthrough and release old patterns and replace them with new self-empowering practices that have truly shifted my life. I would highly recommend Maria to anyone. I am forever changed and forever grateful!

Completely transformed my understanding

Maria guided me to realize that relying solely on my mind (like LOA teaches) wouldn’t lead to the changes I wanted. A profound shift took place within me which completely transformed my understanding and my perspective on life. I am eternally grateful to Maria. 

— Carrie, USA

 I am so glad that I reached out to you

Maria, you are truly godsend. I cannot describe how happy I am. I have no idea what you did and how you did, but I am truly grateful to you. My words in this email cannot thank you enough. Today is the first day that I woke up feeling as if I am ready to take on the world. I am so glad that I reached out to you. I am truly grateful to you. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family!


Definitely worth the investment

Maria showed me how magic can be created by my own Being. It was definitely worth the investment in myself. I’m extremely grateful for my time with her.

The whole session felt as if it was operating on another level

If you can trust one thing in your life right now, trust Maria. You can trust her with your heart and soul. It’s hard to explain, the whole session felt as if it was operating on another level. I’ve never had that kind of experience before. It just felt so much bigger than I anticipated. I can tell you with absolute honesty and conviction that having a session with Maria is life-changing!

– Lisa, USA

Now I know what is creating my reality

I’m overflowing with gratitude and joy! Life has changed dramatically for me after our time together. I have truly realized on a fundamental level what is creating my reality and it has given me confidence for the first time in my life to finally be ME, I feel liberated to be my authentic self!

This journey with you has been amazing

Words cannot fully express the profound impact of my session with you – it has been nothing short of magical. You helped me remove the blockages that held me back, helped me recognize my true worth, and providing so much insight that has been truly life-changing!

— Sarah K.

Something happened within me that I cannot explain

After our session, something happened within me that I cannot explain nor would it even make sense to anyone. There was a part of me that felt my being been taken over by a real peacefulness that I’ve never encountered before. Sounds odd but it’s the truth.

– A.
