[00:01:07] Each week, we’ll explore how to create offerings based on what you do best. So you can have a wait list of ideal clients and bring in continuous income. I’m your host Allyson Scammell let’s get growing.
[00:01:29] Hello there she grows nation. That is the name of this sisterhood of soul guided entrepreneurs. Today, we’re exploring all about how to ask your spirit guides questions so you can receive their guidance, the easiest and the clearest. And so you can build that trust relationship and take your ability to communicate to the next level.
[00:01:58] I’d like to start with what your divine guidance system is composed of and how that creates a funnel of divine guidance. So you can start at the outer layers of the funnel and work your way in to get to the higher, more sophisticated parts of this guidance that is here to support you on your human journey.
[00:02:26] And to that end, let’s start with the human body and body remembers all of your past lifetimes. It’s all there. It’s a super sophisticated tool and it’s loaded with intuition that you can call on. And this is a good. Reason why you should get to know your specific human design type. You can get your human design type for free over the internet.
[00:02:58]and I also recommend that you hire a human design consultant to get your chart read so you can understand better how your specific human body is meant to show up at its best in the world. And so depending on your type, you will get intuitive hits from a gut. Yes. No response. You’ll get a intuitive downloads in the moment.
[00:03:22]you will respond to science from coming from the universe. You will wait a lunar cycle. These are all the different ways that we receive intuition depending on our human design type and our specific human bodies. The next part of the. Divine guidance system are your emotions and your emotions.
[00:03:44] They’re always speaking to you when you are feeling some. Sort of freeing expansive, excited, angling, joyful. It’s your emotion or telling you you’re going in the right direction. If you’re feeling some form of shackles on constricted, heavy, difficult breathing age in a box, your emotions are just trying to tell you that there’s something out of alignment in your world, and it’s asking for your attention.
[00:04:17] To release or shift or whatever it is you need to do. The third part of your divine guidance system is universal intelligence. That’s the divine spirit. Always speaking to you, always interacting and communicating with you. Universal intelligence speaks to you in lots and lots of different ways, but often it comes to you and signs, themes, synchronicities.
[00:04:47]an example of how the divine speaks to you is for example, if you hear a book title from a friend and then you hear it, that same book title talked about a day later on a podcast episode, and then you’re meeting. you’re another friend for coffee and it’s the same book title that comes up that is likely the universe talking to you, telling you, you need to get a copy of it, that book, but please no, that universal intelligence is always communicating with you.
[00:05:18] And it’s communicating with you in a variety of different ways. And it’s always responding to your every question and your every vibration, no matter if it’s a high vibration or a low vibration, it will respond to you. The next part of your divine guidance system is spirit guides. Those are your spirit guides.
[00:05:44] That is the nonphysical consciousness that is here to support you on your journey. You are guidance from birth to death. The, those that specific guidance can be he sometimes referred to as your guardian angels. And then you can also call in other guidance. From the angelic realm. As I mentioned earlier, these days, I’m working with ascended masters.
[00:06:10] They come from all different places, the nonphysical, energy, and wisdom and consciousness that you can call upon and last, but certainly not least is the number one voice. The number one voice of your divine guidance system, which is your higher self. That is your intuition. That is the voice of your soul.
[00:06:32] It comes in for most of us through our heart chakra. It is a few words. And you receive the wisdom of your higher self, a feeling like a feeling bubbling up from your heart. And when you tune into it and tap into it, it’s going to have a love frequency to it. It’s going to have a feeling of love.
[00:07:00] Even if you don’t recognize it as such, it’s gonna vibrate at that high frequency of love coming up from your heart chakra. And that is truly your number one voice and the voice you should always check in with first. And once you get the sort of general guidance from your heart, chakra, the turn right, or turn left guidance.
[00:07:30] From your higher self, then you can call in your spirit guides to ask them for specifics. Should I turn at a 90 degree angle or a 45 degree angle? And that’s how spirit guides are helpful. They can provide the details to the higher guidance coming in from the heart. So let’s transition into specifically how to ask.
[00:07:55] The spiritual realm questions you have to understand. They don’t communicate to us the way we communicate to each other, how I’m communicating to you right now through words. And, the words are coming out of my mouth and you’re receiving it and understanding it instantaneously. But the spiritual realm speak in energy, you can look at it as a telepathically if you will, without words.
[00:08:26] So pretend if you will, that we didn’t have a written or spoken language that we use to communicate. And I just sent you telepathic vibes of energy that you just received an intuitively understood. You just had a. Inner knowing kick in of what I was trying to communicate with you. And that is how non-physical energy communicates with us in our physical form.
[00:08:53] And what happens is because we are designed at this point in our evolution to rely on the written and spoken word for communication. Is that. The nonphysical energy that is here. So your spirit guides that are here will send you an energetic frequency and then we’ll send it to you and it will be received by your third eye chakra primarily.
[00:09:19] And then your brain will translate that message into a message into words that you can then digest and understand. And it’s helpful to understand that the way we as humans communicate with the spiritual realm is different than the way we communicate to each other human to human. Okay. So if you’re at the start of your journey or you just feel like stepping back a little bit, and reinitiating your ability to communicate with the divine, it’s always good to start.
[00:09:59] Your questions with basic. Yes, no questions. So if you think about your business and you want to get divine guidance about where to steer your business, how to grow it, which direction to take it start with with very specific and easy to use answer. Yes, no questions. For example, should I launch my new program this fall or step back?
[00:10:24] Should I launch a new program? Or should I continue on with my old programs? New programs? Yes. No old programs. Yes. No. And once you feel confident with the yes, no answers you are receiving, then move to getting more specific with your yes. No questions. So that can look like, should I launch my new program?
[00:10:50] Program the first week of October or the second. Remember you can always reword about any question. You have to become a yes, no question. And you can get rich really, really specific about what you’re trying to get a yes or no about. yes, nos are a great way for the divine to easily communicate. It’s easy for them to send you a yes.
[00:11:17] Hit or a no hit. All right. So whence once that yes, no system is rolling along really well, then you’ll want to move to multiple choice. So you’ll ask them a question and give them a multiple choice of different answers that you are considering. So again, with my example, should I launch my new program in October, November, or December?
[00:11:43] Should I launch it in the first. First second or third week of October. whatever question you have, give them a multiple choice. And once you feel like you’re receiving that multiple choice. So instead of yes, no, you’re getting October and you feel like that’s coming in clearly or, whatever the answer is, but it’s something beyond.
[00:12:08] Yes, no. And you feel like you’re getting those answers then, and only then I would recommend to you move to more open ended questions. so for example, what does my new program really look like and how, what is it that my ideal audience really needs that this new program that I’m feeling Carl called the offer them can what the solutions or the transformation that they can provide, and your guides can read.
[00:12:39] It really help you with these types of questions, these types of market research questions. And it’s most powerful when you are taking the guidance you’re receiving from your guides, with the guidance that you’re receiving from your actual ideal clients from your audience. And I call this combining three D with five D and that’s really the sweet spot of using.
[00:13:09] Non-physical energy or the divine to really grow your business. So what that means is you’re taking your three dimensional. So that’s your very physical experience of getting market research from your ideal audience, seeing what’s happening on the market, like all the things you would learn in a basic business class.
[00:13:29] Yes. You want to do all those things. Connecting into spirit guides. Doesn’t preclude you from having to actually talk to your people and see what’s happening in the market, fortunately. But if you take that three D stuff, And marry it with the five D. So that’s the fifth dimensional and that’s calling in the higher guidance from your intuition and calling in the higher guidance from your spirit guides and universal intelligence.
[00:13:59] And you’re marrying them ready with the five D that’s when really things, and really start cooking in your business from a place that is so much more easeful. And that’s what we’re talking about here. When we talk about using divine guidance to help. Grow anything in your life or your business? You’re D you’re taking the three D with the five day.
[00:14:23] Okay. So when you get to this place of asking more open ended questions, This is when it’s really going to get important to build trust with your guides, build trust, because they might ask you or call on you to make a super sharp turn that you feel uncomfortable making. They’re never going to ask you to do something that’s so out of alignment that it’s going to put you into stress, but they will absolutely always push you and guide you to that outer edge of your comfort zone and that place that’s place where your true growth and your true authenticity lives is always going to feel uncomfortable.
[00:15:12] It’s not going to feel painful. It’s going to feel uncomfortable. And the more you trust your guides and surrender to this place they’re pushing you to. And the more you get comfortable with the discomfort, the more trust you’re going to build. And the more trust you have, the more clear and unquestionable the guidance will come through.
[00:15:42] And when the guidance gets very clear and unquestionable, and you’re marrying that guidance with three D business, basic business skills of market research of good marketing of, good human to human connection with your ideal audience. That’s when your business will really start to grow in a way that feels aligned and it feels super purposeful because your guides are always going to keep you to your purpose.
[00:16:18] They’re always going to be guiding you back to your truth, to your authenticity, to your why, why you’re here, why it means so much to you. Why you get up out of bed every day. To serve your people and as super important part of building trust with your guides is to always trust, but verify very important trust, but verify.
[00:16:50] So you ask them a question, should I turn right? Or should I turn left? And you’re thinking they’re going to say right. And you’re ready to turn, right. Because right. Is comfortable. Right. Is where you’ve always been, right. Is square inside your comfort zone, but they say, Nope, gotta go left. We’re going to have you go left today.
[00:17:11] And you get that message clearly from your guides. Well, you can dive in left head first. That option is always available to you. But rye recommendation is if it feels significantly. If it feels significantly uncomfortable to turn left, maybe you’ve never turned left before that you tip your toe in the left direction, tip your toe.
[00:17:41] How did that feel? Ooh, it felt pretty good, actually. Yeah, it was uncomfortable. It’s outside of my comfort zone, but it was also kind of thrilling. Cause that’s the thing about the edge of your comfort zone is uncomfortable and thrilling at the same time. So, let me walk another step in that direction and that left direction that I’m not used to taking.
[00:18:02] Ooh, that felt pretty good too. And once you verify that the guidance they’re giving you actually feels in alignment on purpose uncomfortable, but exhilarating, then you know that you’re going in the right direction. And guess what? You’ve just gone. Another step. In the direction of building that trust. So if I can give you an example from my business, I was all set to in June of 2020, host two retreats, two spiritual retreats in South Dakota.
[00:18:45] My retreats that I described as. Spiritual growth meets ecotourism. So I was going to have two retreats in June and there are about half sold out and they were about half sold out as of December, 2019. And it was back then that I was starting to get wasn’t my guides weren’t really saying anything, but I was just starting to get this feeling, this Claire cognizant, inner, knowing that.
[00:19:17] Something was going to happen in 2020, that was going to alter my retreats. But I don’t know, I had this gut feeling that the retreats were somehow going to be significantly altered. I’m not going to say that I knew they weren’t going to happen, but I knew something was going to be altered. So I checked in with my guides.
[00:19:38] What should I do about these retreats? I just, I feel my inner knowing is telling me that something is going to shift for them. And so guess what my guide said, take a break, take a strategic pause on promoting them. All right. Just take a pause on it, promoting the retreats and getting them filled up. I said, okay, no problem.
[00:20:02] It felt a little uncomfortable. I’m not going to lie because at that point, I mean, when it comes to retreat, you don’t want to have full retreat. I mean, if you’re gonna, you know, go through the time and effort and the money and hiring catering and all the things. You actually lose quite a bit of money in a half full retreat, you know, you want to fill them up.
[00:20:22] But so it was uncomfortable to receive that guidance because there was a piece of me that, that said it doesn’t make financial sense to just have a half full retreat, but you know what? I’m very surrendered to my guides right now because I’ve been building trust with them for over 10 years now. So I trusted what they were saying.
[00:20:42] And it actually felt good. So guess what I trusted, but I verified. So I stopped promoting the retreat and something about that felt really good. That felt correct. So I’ve, you know, life just went on and January 20, 20 rolled around February and then by February I was like, okay. the retreat are supposed to be in June.
[00:21:05] I’m like, I need to start promoting them. And at this point, my guy AIDS came in and said, Whoa, they’re going to be some, it’s going to be something different. It’s going to be something different. And I also started working with a new coach. So this is when the five D and the 3d get married. And I was getting, so I was working with a coach who had a lot of.
[00:21:30] Business experience a lot of experience building very successful coaching business. She herself had hosted retreats and international retreats. So she was giving me guidance too, about what to do with them. And I was getting guidance from my higher self and from my guides and I was bringing it all together.
[00:21:50] And then all of a sudden this thing called Corona virus entered the picture and it became very clear. That, think 2020 was gonna be quite a year. and by the time March rolled around, it was pretty clear that, nobody would be able to plan anything with very much certainty in 2020. And so working with my coach, working with my higher self, working with my spirit guides, We all came together and said, all right, well, we have this retreat, these two retreats.
[00:22:29] It is highly likely they are not going to happen in June, 2020. I don’t want to just give the people who’ve signed up so far, a brief funds and go about my way. Like I felt called to do something. So the question came to me. How can I turn these in person retreats into a virtual experience? And from that, the concept of my soul mastermind was birthed.
[00:22:57] And I started promoting my soul mastermind before even had a sales page up. It was all happening really fast. And I really didn’t got into the flow of what my soul mastermind was really supposed to be. And I was. Asking my ideal clients, like, what do you need right now? I was checking in with universal intelligence, like what is happening energetically on the planet.
[00:23:25] I was checking in with my higher self, you know, what is most in alignment for me right now, I was calling in guidance from my guides and I was working with my coach and taking all that together. I launched the map and by the end of April, it was basically sold out. And of the people who had signed up for my retreat.
[00:23:45] I think I ended up issuing one refund. Everybody else either went yeah. Into the mastermind or they went into a one-on-one coaching program with me. So this three D plus five D process of learning, how to ask the right questions and how to integrate what you received from the divine, with what’s happening.
[00:24:11] In the human experience and what’s happening in your business will always help you. You’ll always be able to pivot when you need to pivot if there’s a pandemic or something else happening in your life when you’re not sure when it feels hard, when it feels challenging, take what you’re seeing happening in the market.
[00:24:31] What you’re seeing happening with your ideal clients and call and what you are being called to. By your higher self and call in your guides to provide the support. And as you go so trust, but verify trust, but verify. And if you’re not sure what you are receiving from your guides. Take your best guests.
[00:25:02] That’s all you can do because nine times out of 10, your best guess is actually correct, or at least is going in the right direction. And if you’re trusting, but verifying then. Even if you’re wrong, you thought you received something from your guides that you didn’t, which I, in my experience happens infrequently.
[00:25:25] In my experience. When you think you’re receiving from something from your guides, you are the, let’s just say that your brain got involved and misinterpreted it, or cut you off from your divine guidance system. Well, what the trust, but verify policy. if you start tipping your toe down the wrong direction, you are going to know your emotional guidance system is going to kick in.
[00:25:50] It’s gonna feel like a shackles on constricted, heavy off track out of alignment type feeling. And then you can just go back, go back to your higher self. Take some deep breaths. Isolate, get quiet. Go inward. Call in your guides say, Hey, I thought I received guidance from you to walk down path a, but now I’m wondering if you didn’t tell me to walk down path B, see, see what you receive.
[00:26:25] Get to know your primary intuitive gifts. If you tend to hear guidance, see guidance, sense it, or have an inner knowing of it. And continue to hone your gifts, continue to trust, but verify, surrender to what you think is coming in. Take inspired action and see how it feels. And in time you are going to build that trust.
[00:26:56] And with trust belt, you are going to upgrade your ability to call in clear. Unquestionable guidance. So my challenge for you for this week is for the next seven days. Yes. For the next seven days, I want you to get out. A notebook or journal that you have dedicated to communicating with your spirit guides or dedicate one.
[00:27:27] It can be a ratty old notebook and dedicated to communication. Yeah. With my spirit guides or my higher self or the divine, however you label it. And I want you to start asking questions of your higher self. And your spirit guides. So you can start to differentiate the different frequency of how your higher self communicates with you versus other non-physical energy.
[00:27:55] Cause it is different. And I want you to really get to know and experience the differences and start with, yes, no questions. Then get a little bit more specific with, yes, no questions and can about about five minutes a day to ask and see what you perceive to be receiving as answers. Right. And yes, no questions go to more specific.
[00:28:22] Yes, no questions. Then multiple choice, then call in more open ended questions. And with the open ended questions. I want you to include one or two questions about the future. You can ask something about coronavirus, will, when will coronavirus shift or when will this happen with it, or when will my community be safe for, Large gatherings, whatever it is, and write down what you perceive to be receiving as guidance.
[00:28:58] You have it in your journal, you have it recorded and then test it, test, test, test. So test it via inspired action. Testing it with regards to what you see happening in the world. Trust it, but test it. Alright. And I really want to thank you so much for listening. I’m super grateful for all the support she grows.
