Episode Transcript

[00:00:00] Welcome everyone to the Your Energy First Podcast. I’m your host, Emily Marie, and it is such a pleasure to have you here to talk about all things your energy.

Welcome back to the podcast everyone. It is such an honor to have you. And in today’s episode, it’s a little bit unique. I was on a hike with my friend Lauren, and we were about two thirds of the way through, and she had started asking me questions about spirit guides and intuition and spirit team, and her questions were so great and she had the brilliant idea of starting to record us.

So, The footage is a little bit raw, but you’re gonna be right there with us in nature, and sorry for my huffing and puffing , but hopefully this helps provide some [00:01:00] clarity for you and makes you feel just a little bit more empowered with how to understand and work with the amazing resources that are your energy and spirit guides and spirit team.

So you asked, if we have spirit guides or how many spirit guides we have. What did you ask? How many spirit guides do we have and are they interchangeable? Okay, so before you, even for the land on this earth plane, you, your higher self takes sort of an assessment of what’s going on. And all of this is being run by source.

Source is the orchestrator, right? And source is kind of like, we got this going over here. We got this going over here. Here’s the buffet. Could some people interchange the word source with God? Oh my gosh, God. Universe, divine. Okay. Limitless. Cosmos. All, all the things who it’s. I always say it’s whomever your source [00:02:00] is because, okay, everyone has a different truth.

Everyone has, even though our truths are all very similar and aligned essentially to the same place, how we get there looks really different. Great question. Ask all the questions. That is so pretty. Oh, that’s so pretty. So. When you take a look and you just, you know, your higher self decides, you know what, this is gonna be a good spot for me to go.

These are the lessons I wanna learn. That’s the other thing, especially in America right now, we really lean too much on the stories of success, romance, capitalism, the goodness. Yeah. And I think. We need to, and I’ve been a huge, uh, victim and part active participant, and it’s a lot of the healing I’m doing in that too.

Right. And really, we kind of need to look at life as much more of an even scale of failure and success. And that’s the whole journey. That’s what we’ve all read about and heard about from It’s the American dream. [00:03:00] Yeah. So, and the more you heal and the more work you do on. It to me, the more fulfilling life becomes.

But then you also don’t wanna get caught in too much healing, too much of the other stuff, so, so from being on the outside and becoming more aware of people who are doing healing, . It seems like some of them get in this cyclical. I’m always healing, I’m always working, I’m always doing this. And obviously you’re not gonna reach a specific date and be like, never.

I’m fixed. Never. That will literally never happen. The the moment that happens, you’re gonna ascend into doing something else in the universe. Yeah. You’re not gonna be on this earth plane. There’s literally no one on this earth plane who’s just like, I’m good. I’m healed. I’m fine. , I mean, if you’re here, no matter.

no matter what your role is, yeah. You’re here to do inner work. Whether or not you do it is totally up to your free will. So your [00:04:00] spirit guides are those people. Those people, they’re not people, those energies who’ve evolved and who have, have said, you know, it makes sense for me. Actually, one of the things spirit’s bringing forward right now is that they say they can be people We’ve.

Other lives with who’ve evolved. That’s what I was just wondering. Yeah, so what we don’t wanna get confused with, say a loved one has passed away. and are they on our spirit team if they’re healed and it’s a good thing. Yes. Are they our main spirit guide? I’m asking the guides and they’re giving me a hard no.

And the reason. Now that doesn’t mean there are people who they choose that that loved one is their main interaction. Yeah, which is totally fine. Again, everyone has their own truth. They’re like a pinch hitter, like they come in. Right. Yeah. So anyway, your main spirit guide or guides, they be because they’re with you Prew womb, there’s an agreement, and the agreement is they know the [00:05:00] different things you wanna experience in this life.

So they help be your guide to be your inner compass so that you can actually come to this life with purposes, as opposed to just floating around, being like, I’m gonna go do this and now I’m gonna go do that. Now I’m gonna go do this. We all have different. Mm-hmm. . And we all make really different choices, which is where our intuition comes in, which is our spirit guides gently saying, Hey, pray your higher self.

Because as much as our souls in our body, it’s an, it’s an element of our soul that’s in our body. It’s not our entire soul, cuz our entire soul actually has a higher consciousness that’s closer to love, that’s closer to source God, universe, divine, and is is pretty all loving. and I’m like, I’m asking them right now, is our higher consciousness all knowing?

And they say yes, but not in the way sources. Yeah. So our higher self sees the bigger picture, but our But source knows the bigger picture. [00:06:00] Got it. So that’s the two questions then. Yeah. So I was adopted Uhhuh , which means I don’t know past generations of people. Yep. So who. . Does that matter In terms of my guides?

No. Okay. No, your guides have, I mean, yes and no. So it doesn’t, it’s, it’s kinda, in those cases it’s a little bit more of the grander plan. Yeah. Which source has a plan? Right. Okay. And you, you know, your higher self knew coming into this world that this would be the case, which is interesting. Yeah. And also I’m always very careful saying that because there’s people who’ve.

it’s extremely traumatic experiences and it’s not fair to me to say, well, you know, this is part of the plan because I have absolutely seen things go sideways. Yeah. And I don’t have an answer to that. And it’s really hard. And no one is gonna [00:07:00] choose to put themselves through traumatic experiences. That’s kind of why life does it for us.

Yeah. So, um, there is, and it’s all for growth, but it feels pretty darn and crappy going through. So, yeah, so you uh, you definitely have, um, ancestors healed, loved ones from other lifetimes who are with you in spirit, and that’s a really good way to put it from other lifetimes. Yeah, okay. I just called it lifetimes and spirit just called it experiences.

Yeah. Because when we think of family, we think of linear, right? It’s like we have our parents, we have our grandparents, we have our great grandparents. And you think of the family tree exactly. Yeah, so that, that makes sense. So getting back to your spirit guides, so you have these main spirit guides, the ones who are there for you from prior to inception, and then they’re there with you from when you till when you cross over and clear out and so, and when you [00:08:00] clear out, do you go back to the ethers?

Yeah. You do? Okay. Yeah. What some people call heaven, other realms. I’ve only ever seen it as just this golden warmth. That’s all I can describe it as. The other aspect is that people think, so you have your main spirit guides and they’re the ones that are really, they feel like you and they sound like you.

That’s why your gut feels like you. Okay. That’s why you’re, that’s why it’s you talking to you in your mind. So when you get that gut feeling that’s like yes or no, that’s your guides a hundred percent. Okay. Or your intuition. What’s the difference between guides and intuition? there isn’t. Okay. Yeah. And then the other thing is our intuition is a guidance tool versus an answer.

Button where for a long time I was like, let me ask my intuition, let me ask my intuition. And my intuition was waning. And I was like, why is my intuition waning? And my guys were like, make a [00:09:00] decision, . You have to live your life. Stop leaning back into us so much. And I was like, Ugh, that makes sense. Rude, because we wanna avoid pain, we wanna avoid failure, and we wanna avoid hurt.

So we turn to our intuition to say, what’s fear? We think our intuition is gonna guide us to this perfect oasis of a life, and my intuition has actually guided me to some big mistakes that I’ve learned and gotten huge value from. Yeah. Then the other aspect that gets kind of confusing is our spirit guides are part of our spirit team, so throughout our lifetime we get new guides, new energies, loved ones, including animals.

and then like pets who kind of, I’m ask, actually the guides are showing me something new, so it’s not that they, this is so interesting. Take a minute. [00:10:00] So there’s a lot of, uh, animal symbolism. and we think that these things come in and leave, and it’s much more of an ebb and flow. It’s more like if our inner light gives us access to all energy that exists in all of space and time, all that’s happening is that those energies we haven’t noticed or sensed or felt before are just becoming amplified in our energy.

Okay? So think of like your dog, Stella, who is like a daughter to you. She was always with you before this life. Join you in the physical world, left you in the physical world, joins your energy in the spiritual world now. So really, has she ever not energetically been with you? No. No. So the same goes for guides.

So we’ve got our main spirit guides, which are the ones that are her intuition and that are just our core, our rock, our non-negotiables. and then our spirit team [00:11:00] is everything else. And our spirit team can also include energies from other realms, other lifetimes that are here to support us. So oftentimes people think needs this example.

There’s different types of goddesses. Isis, there’s a ton of ’em. Yeah, I can only . And what happens is that energy. And what that energy will do is, so Nyan helps balance the feminism, the feminine. So Nyan will come and support all the souls, all of the energies that want to receive to their own personal degree and choice a level of balancing the feminine question.

Yeah. Does that in any way relate to the chak? . So, and why I ask is if you can tie a goddess to each one of your chakra colors. Oh, that’d be [00:12:00] cool. That’d be kind of cool. Yeah. Um, , the guys are so funny. They’re like so jovial. They’re like fun concept , but they say it kind of takes away from, it does. You need the two to be separate.

Well, hang on a second. They’re kind of correcting me now. They’re saying, but say, if that felt true to you and you want it, and if that felt like in a phase of your life that that would feel good and it would help you learn and grow, then why not? So yeah, there we go. And the other thing spirit guides is you and I are human.

we are be for yourself, . So this is kind of funny, everybody here on earth is human. No matter how you define, say you’re like, I’m a, you know, maybe you’re like, I’m a witch, so blah, blah, blah. You’re actually still human. Totally. You’re human . So what happens is [00:13:00] you and I are, we were born women in this lifetime.

We’ve chosen to be women in this lifetime continuously, and people think, oh, well, our spirit guys are like us. They must be masculine or feminine. Our other as well, So we project our experience onto our spirit guides and we say, oh, you know, it’s a swing on the earth plane, so therefore it’s this way in spirit guide realm.

So is my guy a man or a woman, or what are they? And we want them to show us, show us features, you know? Yeah. We want them to be familiar. Exactly. And it can get dicey because. , when we seek that, there’s always an energy that will show up that way for us. So that’s why you wanna connect your inner light first, because then you’re only gonna connect with your spirit guides as opposed to another energy.

It’s like, sure, I’ll show up for you and show you that I’m a, you know, look this way and I act that way. So I always, the [00:14:00] guides always say like, Lean back into your light or your heart and trust us, like, but it’s trust, the feeling versus what we wanna physically see. And part of the reason they want us to do that is because let’s pretend you connect.

You were like, I wanna know how many spirit guides I have and what do they look like and are they man or woman? Because as humans we like to quantify things we like and we wanna feel to know safe. Yeah, of course. It’s so nor it’s so normal. Pretty, those are the mushrooms. I like, guys are so pretty, look like stairs.

So, um, say for example, I’m totally making this up. You have five guides and you’re like, okay, I wanna connect with ’em. How many are there? And then, and kinda doesn’t matter. Cause like we said, our energy’s kind of always expanding. We have access to all of it. So how many guide do you have is sort of irrelevant.

So question. , do you know how many guides you have? ? I haven’t leaned [00:15:00] in and asked them that in forever to say years. And they go decades because Okay. I just continue to lean into the energy. Yeah. And when you lean into the energy and ask for support versus leaning on one. Yep. Spirit guide, one spirit guide can only help you so much.

And that’s where I was going with that is like if you know you have a specific number and you’re always going to a specific. . Yeah, yeah, exactly. It makes it a different experience. You’re not expanding and you’re not growing, reaching your new potential. Yeah. Yeah. And the other thing, and that’s the exact point, so say you’re like, okay, this spirit guide’s a man, and his name’s Bob , and he wears a cowboy hat, and that’s how he identifies.

What’s gonna happen is you’re gonna continue go to Bob versus going to your own inner light and saying, I trust my expansion. I trust my higher self, I trust my source. I’m leaning into that and Bob’s gonna be on the sideways cheering me off. Yeah. And coming into, and the other aspect is, [00:16:00] so on our spirit team, I’m not really, our spirit guides.

Our spirit guides don’t really have. , like, I mean, , they don’t have a gender. They Thank you . Okay. Wow. I’ve never asked them. They have sex. I’m like, what? How are new spirit guides made, Emily? Exactly. They’re shaking their heads. If only, um, they’re saying there’s other pleasures in those realms. That’s cool.

I’m sure there are. Um, so when it comes to our spirit team, we will, there will. More masculine or more feminine or more androgynous energies. So it is normal. Like is a perfect example. She helps balance the feminine. Obviously she’s gonna be a strong feminine energy. So that’s another reason I think we’ve all kind of gotten confused, very understandably, is that there are strong male and female energies out.

There’s When you say we’re confused, do you mean [00:17:00] like with the current climate of pronouns of No kishi them, they, no, I mean, . That’s actually, that’s interesting. Um, because I have client, client clients who are a part of that, what I’m gonna call a movement with the guides that called a movement. And it is a movement.

Yeah. It’s a movement for more love in the world and actually for us to look within more. Totally. Which is doing everything we’ve been told. So anyway, um, no, I mean, when we, like right now, because I left my corporate job, I’m bringing in a lot more feminine energy, which is Ian Energy. Did you say yin? Yeah.

What’s so funny is a minute ago when you were saying it’s a strong female energy, I’m like, okay, everything in life is balanced, right? Mm-hmm. , so if there’s a yin, there has to be yang . Yeah. Yeah. Yin and yang. I don’t know if I’m pronouncing that right. I think it might be yin and Yong, but you get the idea.

Totally brings it back to middle school where we all had those T-shirts with Y and yang. [00:18:00] And we had no idea what it meant. And no fear shirts and hyper collar shirts. It’s Stussy or Stusy Stuy. That’s right. . Yeah. I can still draw the S . You . So what where we get confused is we do you know, every human is energy able.

All of us have these abilities, we just haven’t been taught them. So you may pick up on a more feminine or more masculine energy in your spirit team and therefore, You naturally think, oh, I’m male or female or other. Therefore, my spirit guides are we project, and instead we wanna look at it as what’s coming in to help us, what’s coming in to support us.

And it all brings us back to trusting ourselves, our higher power. And the guys really drive home this word expansion. They say humans don’t feel safe to expand yet. , is it because of fear? A hundred percent. Yeah. [00:19:00] I mean, indoctrinated fear times a thousand. Yeah. Interesting you say that because one of the things that I’m curious about is this huge religious push in the US right now by, let’s call them evangelical Christians.

Okay. And I wonder like they’re so indoctrinated, right? , is it because, is it a false source that they’re following? Like what? Yeah. I see. What’s the deal? So let me see. Are they not in touch with any type of source besides the one that they are taught and that’s it? Right. And they’re not open to receiving?

Sure. I mean, I’m, I’m asking my guides or I’m asking spirit, right? Because there’s my opinion, based on my experience and totally the bigger picture. Yep. And

[00:20:00] we put, they’re saying, we put a lot of labels on what’s good and what’s bad, and that’s what helps growth. And they say, until you are pressed, you don’t grow as much and. The other night I was out with a friend who was sharing me with me that in her mom’s group, all of these women e es, essentially from the outside looking in have everything they get to be stay-at-home moms, they’re wonderful parents.

They don’t worry about money, have all husbands, they’re all miserable. Why is that? Well, it’s cuz on the one hand, society or religion and the example you gave has said, Hey, welcome to this world. This is how you do it, right? So what escapes you is, and that’s why we feel so challenged, trusting our intuition, because what escapes you is trying new things.

Feeling things out. F Tripping and falling. Yeah. Making mistakes in life. It’s [00:21:00] the fear of uncertainty. Of course. Dating the wrong person. Whereas if our parents raised us to say, Hey, you’re gonna have a plethora of different types of experiences in life. What did you learn from it? What did you, what do you want?

As opposed to saying, well, you have to stick with him because our religion or our society says so, or You need to have kids by 26. Or it. Your mother and your grandmother, and everybody’s done. Of course. And it’s confusing because sometimes we do want those things and then at the same time we feel it called in another direction, and there’s not always one path for us in life or some people, their path is super straightforward, super crystal clear, and that’s what’s really projected in our world.

That’s what we see a lot of the successes on, on TV and in social media, when in actuality, most of us are on this journey. Explore a variety of different things. Okay. And that’s what makes you happy. Cuz once you traverse all these different experiences, [00:22:00] then all of a sudden you’re like, ping, ping, ping. Oh, these are the things that I like.

These are the things that I don’t because you’ve experienced them and that’s why. And then you make different choices. Absolutely. And that’s why I’ve always said, you know, people are like, well, do you travel so much? And I’m like, yes. I love to travel because I. To learn and to experience new and different things totally outside of what I grew up with.

Totally. To see different cultures and different ways that people do things or don’t do things or what’s acceptable to some people is absolutely not to another group. And then how many times have you come back from a feeling different about yourself? Every time. Exactly. Every time. Because you see, especially for me growing up as a white woman in an affluent community, how much I do have, mm.

So on days where I’m like, oh my God, I have nothing to wear, or blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Or you know, of course Ice, ice, my ice maker broke in my fridge. So I’m like, repair man, and how much is [00:23:00] this gonna cost me? Right? But in the big scheme of things, right, they’re literally, and people use this as a joking phrase, but they’re literally all first world problems, right?

Because I’ve been to places in deep South Africa, orphanages and villages where. These kids have nothing. Uhhuh , and they are the happiest children you’ll ever meet in your life. All they want is a hug. All they want is a high five. They’re just happy. They’re alive. They’re present. They’re present. To go back to the religious thing, it’s like it’s hard for me.

Two, the goats are there. . You know, I will say this, one of the things the spirit always says is they go, when you find your inner truth and your inner happiness, which is an entire life’s journey, it’s you. There’s so many phases and developments for it. That’s when you get to share those [00:24:00] experiences with the world and make it a better place.

So there’s no, which I agree with you. But I believe the world has become so divided, especially in, of course now that people won’t listen. Well, it’s not a, so that’s such a good point cuz I’ve asked the guys spirit time and again, what do I do? What do I do? Yep. And they go, you need to be brighter in your light.

Which means, what is my truth? What is my joy? Because when you emanate that, you’re sending that ripple out into the world. But that’s what’s hard for me is. Everybody has a choice in life, and I believe in freedom of choice. Right. Unless of course you’re born into certain circumstances, then those choices are very different.

Yes. Yeah. But to take away someone’s ability to choose for themselves, right. That’s what’s difficult for me, and this is a lot of, when you agree, it sends me into a rage. I mean, I, I teach feeling calm within yourself and being connected to your right and. [00:25:00] My ego gets rageful at these things as it should, cuz it’s, this is part of, you know, there’s been a lot of unearthing of these old, old patterns and constructs coming up for us to reface in a new way because clearly it hasn’t been cleared out yet.

One of my friends put it in a very succinct way that was kind of eyeopening. She said, my daughter is going to have less freedoms than I did growing up. Which was really sad to me. Yeah. And that’s why we have to be loud and make those changes, especially for people who don’t have access to the support and the, what’s the other word means that we do.

Yeah. So, and it’s baby steps, you know, I remember years and years ago, I, I was always wanting to reach out and [00:26:00] help people, and my guides would physically pull my body back and say, how’s your energy, what’s it doing? When you say help people, like what kind of, anyway, anyway, I was, I was always donating money and, yeah.

Yeah. Like that kind of thing. Um, but like physically helping people, right? Yeah. and be it energetically or volunteer and they pull my energy back and be like, how is your energy doing Like, which is fair? I’m like, I don’t even know . It’s zapped. I’m tired. But this is, especially women, this is what we do. We give, we help.

We support. Yeah. And the guides go. You have to take care of your energy first because when you do that, you’re gonna be able to, he a help people better and also helping people for the right reasons from a full. And then we get more accomplished, and then we’re not putting out fumes as if we’re putting out really good golden light.

So it took a couple years and finally I figured out ways to refill my cup, which is [00:27:00] I still work in progress and I think will always be part of my journey, which is something I respect about you, because if I’m like, Hey, do you wanna go do this? You’re. , thanks, but no. Mm-hmm. , because that’s given me the courage in a lot of different aspects of my life to protect my own energy and be like, not feeling it today.

Yeah. Yeah. That’s, you know, it’s a big one for all of us, and that’s, Still. I mean, I wish I would’ve learned it when I were younger. Oh right. I think we all would have appreciated that. Yeah. And we all know, like we do that, you know, where does people pleasing come from? Comes from a lack mindset. If I say no, will I have another opportunity?

If I say no, will I survive? Right. Like, you know, there’s, we have these crazy, crazy underlying fears cuz we used to live in such stronger communities. Where if I say no to hanging out with you, Lauren, will you reject me in the future? And then will I survive cuz I won’t have access to your resources. So it’s a real, it’s a [00:28:00] deep, it’s deeply rooted in our dna, in our lineage, in our energy.

Interesting. Yeah. And the people pleasing. It’s not just about, oh, I’m gonna set my boundaries and raise my vibration, which I’ve said before, and it does do that. But it’s scary because it’s actually people pleasing to survival instinct. So what are some Thanks for sticking with me. . No, I find this enthralling.

What are some aspects of people pleasing that you see often that are. More draining than they are fulfilling the food we eat, we go out to a restaurant, the quality of food is poor. Everyone, but everyone else is doing it. It’s too salty. We don’t wanna waste food, we don’t wanna waste, it’s too much waste money.

Yep. Everybody else is eating. They might judge me, they might judge me if I eat it all. They might judge me if I don’t eat enough of it. Um, that’s probably one of the biggest ones is how we, it’s natural as humans to commune over. And our food [00:29:00] sources are so poor at the moment. Like we don’t realize how much of the products we consume are completely overprocessed.

Not actually, they’re a hundred percent created in labs. Yeah. Which is really scary. And then they use these things as preservatives. So, yeah. Um, and it’s interesting you say that because when I was in Scotland, I just felt so much better. I know. And I’d wake up with so much more energy. I know. and I, I know just like everything tasted better.

I know. It had like taste. I know, I know. So I remember I had these tomatoes in Germany. Oh. And I go, if tomatoes tasted like this, everyone would eat ’em all the time. Because there’s so many things that we buy at the grocery store that look pretty and perfect, like strawberries. Right. And they have zero flavor.

Yep. Or they’re like so tart, you just can’t even, yeah. So food is a big one and a lot of our day-to-day. So we’ll create our to-do list based on what we’re supposed to do. [00:30:00] And this is something I’ve really shifted and I’m like, okay, what if the laundry doesn’t get done today? Now it’s easy for me to say, because when you have kids that have sports, they need clean stuff.

Yeah. But the guides say it’s about breaking up a system. It’s as much as it’s about boundaries, it’s about having the bravery to say, what do I need? And then asking for it. We have a fear of being rejected, which is inner child. For asking for something and that person not giving it to us, that’s one of the biggest, the guides say it’s like a gaping hole in our hearts and they go.

What’s funny is it can be the smallest trigger. It doesn’t have to be something grandiose. It can be small things too, and it, and then it all adds up and builds. So the way we combat that and work on. is with a million and a half baby steps of what do I need right now? What would feel good, which is [00:31:00] counterintuitive, especially as women.

Yep. We’re like, oh, that’s so selfish of me. I have to Right. You know, feed my kids and all this other stuff. And of course you do. That’s important too. But when you start filling up your cup, everybody has three to five minutes a day. Everybody does. And if you can do one thing that makes you feel good, that energy then is like a tuning fork in your body.

And every time you do that, that’s something that’s such a small amount of time though. Is it multiple times a day or just like, I need five minutes a day for myself. . So for example, how much time do you set aside to your, for yourself in a day just to focus on your wellbeing, journaling, meditating, reading, an inspirational book, gardening, whatever it means for you?

I don’t, I don’t wake up in the morning and set intentions like Right. You’ve told me to do for, oh, I mean, how long? Well, an inten, the thing I like about intentions is that they take a millisecond and you’re literally [00:32:00] giving energy direction. Mm-hmm. So that’s why it’s kind of a good one to start people out with.

But if you, but if it doesn’t feel true to you, don’t do it. But I feel like when I set my intentions, it’s gonna be a to-do list. Oh. So like, I’m like, okay, here are my intentions for today. Like, I’m gonna do my laundry. I’m gonna go for , I’m gonna go for a walk. I’m gonna mop the floors. I need to give the dogs a bath.

Like, okay, I need to figure out when I’m going with Diana to. Plants so I can redo my pots because it’s bad fi way to have like, I’m so glad dead plants shared this. I had no idea. Yeah, no, an intention is telling energy what to do and letting it go. So an intention would be like, okay, I set the intention that today, you know, let’s say that is your to-do list for the day.

Mm-hmm. , you know, I set the intention that my day goes smoothly, um, with ease and joy and that I am supported. I set the intention for happy surprises. I set the intention for joyful moments today, and then you let it go. You’re [00:33:00] basically saying, Hey, universe, Hey God, hey, source. Hey Ala, hey, whoever, cosmos, um, whatever.

This is what I’d like. This is what I’d like today. You’re literally, it’s like putting a wish out there into the universe. It’s the opposite of like literally writing. Yeah, yeah. Pick up the poop in the yard, like, right. So that’s why I say to people to start with three to five minutes. because what’s gonna happen is it’s gonna feel really weird at first.

It feels so weird. It’s like, you know, we don’t start out our life running. We start by rolling over and then crawling a little bit and then holding ourselves up and then walking. Right? Yeah. And it’s the same with taking care of your energy. You need to start. Something small, three to five minutes, and you know, there’s a hundred me good meditations on YouTube.

Do you write down your intentions? No. Mm-hmm. I just say ’em to myself, roll over or, or I, I’m like, Hey, spirit team, will you please rent energy for me for my highest good right now? You can do that anywhere, [00:34:00] anytime. Define highest good. Okay, so, so this is like, what’s the overarching theme? Of highest good, highest good 1 0 1 or Yeah.

So when you, um, one of the universal laws of energy is that like energy 1 0 1 is what you could call this? Yeah. Um, it’s like, what is a meditation? What does it look like? What can it be like? And it’s not prescribed, right? It’s not like it’s 10 minutes sitting in this, heck no, no position. See, this is where again, people, we all get confused and we don’t do it cuz we feel like it’s not enough or that we’re doing it wrong.

It’s not what, and it’s because we don’t know, at least me, I don’t know where to start. Nobody does. So that’s why I’m asking all these questions like what are guides? What are intentions? What is a meditation in any of its forms? What are the benefits of journaling? Like how do I find my guides? Or what’s the difference between intuition and guides?[00:35:00]

Energy 1 0 1, we’re gonna have to do a few more of these. . I’m down. I love these questions though. Um, so because you know this stuff and it comes to you intuitively, right? Yeah. And no pun intended, . And what’s interesting is there’s no one answer for everyone. Exactly. Yeah. And that’s why it’s hard for. As a triple Virgo, right, who loves structure and logic for there not to be an answer, which is why my brother being a philosophy major, I’m like, , that kills me.

I know. . Hey, I’m a Pisces, and philosophy kills me. Yeah. Well, let’s table that for next time. Great question.

Episode Transcript

[00:00:00] Welcome everyone to the Your Energy First Podcast. I’m your host, Emily Marie, and it is such a pleasure to have you here to talk about all things your energy.

Welcome back to the podcast everyone. It is such an honor to have you. And in today’s episode, it’s a little bit unique. I was on a hike with my friend Lauren, and we were about two thirds of the way through, and she had started asking me questions about spirit guides and intuition and spirit team, and her questions were so great and she had the brilliant idea of starting to record us.

So, The footage is a little bit raw, but you’re gonna be right there with us in nature, and sorry for my huffing and puffing , but hopefully this helps provide some [00:01:00] clarity for you and makes you feel just a little bit more empowered with how to understand and work with the amazing resources that are your energy and spirit guides and spirit team.

So you asked, if we have spirit guides or how many spirit guides we have. What did you ask? How many spirit guides do we have and are they interchangeable? Okay, so before you, even for the land on this earth plane, you, your higher self takes sort of an assessment of what’s going on. And all of this is being run by source.

Source is the orchestrator, right? And source is kind of like, we got this going over here. We got this going over here. Here’s the buffet. Could some people interchange the word source with God? Oh my gosh, God. Universe, divine. Okay. Limitless. Cosmos. All, all the things who it’s. I always say it’s whomever your source [00:02:00] is because, okay, everyone has a different truth.

Everyone has, even though our truths are all very similar and aligned essentially to the same place, how we get there looks really different. Great question. Ask all the questions. That is so pretty. Oh, that’s so pretty. So. When you take a look and you just, you know, your higher self decides, you know what, this is gonna be a good spot for me to go.

These are the lessons I wanna learn. That’s the other thing, especially in America right now, we really lean too much on the stories of success, romance, capitalism, the goodness. Yeah. And I think. We need to, and I’ve been a huge, uh, victim and part active participant, and it’s a lot of the healing I’m doing in that too.

Right. And really, we kind of need to look at life as much more of an even scale of failure and success. And that’s the whole journey. That’s what we’ve all read about and heard about from It’s the American dream. [00:03:00] Yeah. So, and the more you heal and the more work you do on. It to me, the more fulfilling life becomes.

But then you also don’t wanna get caught in too much healing, too much of the other stuff, so, so from being on the outside and becoming more aware of people who are doing healing, . It seems like some of them get in this cyclical. I’m always healing, I’m always working, I’m always doing this. And obviously you’re not gonna reach a specific date and be like, never.

I’m fixed. Never. That will literally never happen. The the moment that happens, you’re gonna ascend into doing something else in the universe. Yeah. You’re not gonna be on this earth plane. There’s literally no one on this earth plane who’s just like, I’m good. I’m healed. I’m fine. , I mean, if you’re here, no matter.

no matter what your role is, yeah. You’re here to do inner work. Whether or not you do it is totally up to your free will. So your [00:04:00] spirit guides are those people. Those people, they’re not people, those energies who’ve evolved and who have, have said, you know, it makes sense for me. Actually, one of the things spirit’s bringing forward right now is that they say they can be people We’ve.

Other lives with who’ve evolved. That’s what I was just wondering. Yeah, so what we don’t wanna get confused with, say a loved one has passed away. and are they on our spirit team if they’re healed and it’s a good thing. Yes. Are they our main spirit guide? I’m asking the guides and they’re giving me a hard no.

And the reason. Now that doesn’t mean there are people who they choose that that loved one is their main interaction. Yeah, which is totally fine. Again, everyone has their own truth. They’re like a pinch hitter, like they come in. Right. Yeah. So anyway, your main spirit guide or guides, they be because they’re with you Prew womb, there’s an agreement, and the agreement is they know the [00:05:00] different things you wanna experience in this life.

So they help be your guide to be your inner compass so that you can actually come to this life with purposes, as opposed to just floating around, being like, I’m gonna go do this and now I’m gonna go do that. Now I’m gonna go do this. We all have different. Mm-hmm. . And we all make really different choices, which is where our intuition comes in, which is our spirit guides gently saying, Hey, pray your higher self.

Because as much as our souls in our body, it’s an, it’s an element of our soul that’s in our body. It’s not our entire soul, cuz our entire soul actually has a higher consciousness that’s closer to love, that’s closer to source God, universe, divine, and is is pretty all loving. and I’m like, I’m asking them right now, is our higher consciousness all knowing?

And they say yes, but not in the way sources. Yeah. So our higher self sees the bigger picture, but our But source knows the bigger picture. [00:06:00] Got it. So that’s the two questions then. Yeah. So I was adopted Uhhuh , which means I don’t know past generations of people. Yep. So who. . Does that matter In terms of my guides?

No. Okay. No, your guides have, I mean, yes and no. So it doesn’t, it’s, it’s kinda, in those cases it’s a little bit more of the grander plan. Yeah. Which source has a plan? Right. Okay. And you, you know, your higher self knew coming into this world that this would be the case, which is interesting. Yeah. And also I’m always very careful saying that because there’s people who’ve.

it’s extremely traumatic experiences and it’s not fair to me to say, well, you know, this is part of the plan because I have absolutely seen things go sideways. Yeah. And I don’t have an answer to that. And it’s really hard. And no one is gonna [00:07:00] choose to put themselves through traumatic experiences. That’s kind of why life does it for us.

Yeah. So, um, there is, and it’s all for growth, but it feels pretty darn and crappy going through. So, yeah, so you uh, you definitely have, um, ancestors healed, loved ones from other lifetimes who are with you in spirit, and that’s a really good way to put it from other lifetimes. Yeah, okay. I just called it lifetimes and spirit just called it experiences.

Yeah. Because when we think of family, we think of linear, right? It’s like we have our parents, we have our grandparents, we have our great grandparents. And you think of the family tree exactly. Yeah, so that, that makes sense. So getting back to your spirit guides, so you have these main spirit guides, the ones who are there for you from prior to inception, and then they’re there with you from when you till when you cross over and clear out and so, and when you [00:08:00] clear out, do you go back to the ethers?

Yeah. You do? Okay. Yeah. What some people call heaven, other realms. I’ve only ever seen it as just this golden warmth. That’s all I can describe it as. The other aspect is that people think, so you have your main spirit guides and they’re the ones that are really, they feel like you and they sound like you.

That’s why your gut feels like you. Okay. That’s why you’re, that’s why it’s you talking to you in your mind. So when you get that gut feeling that’s like yes or no, that’s your guides a hundred percent. Okay. Or your intuition. What’s the difference between guides and intuition? there isn’t. Okay. Yeah. And then the other thing is our intuition is a guidance tool versus an answer.

Button where for a long time I was like, let me ask my intuition, let me ask my intuition. And my intuition was waning. And I was like, why is my intuition waning? And my guys were like, make a [00:09:00] decision, . You have to live your life. Stop leaning back into us so much. And I was like, Ugh, that makes sense. Rude, because we wanna avoid pain, we wanna avoid failure, and we wanna avoid hurt.

So we turn to our intuition to say, what’s fear? We think our intuition is gonna guide us to this perfect oasis of a life, and my intuition has actually guided me to some big mistakes that I’ve learned and gotten huge value from. Yeah. Then the other aspect that gets kind of confusing is our spirit guides are part of our spirit team, so throughout our lifetime we get new guides, new energies, loved ones, including animals.

and then like pets who kind of, I’m ask, actually the guides are showing me something new, so it’s not that they, this is so interesting. Take a minute. [00:10:00] So there’s a lot of, uh, animal symbolism. and we think that these things come in and leave, and it’s much more of an ebb and flow. It’s more like if our inner light gives us access to all energy that exists in all of space and time, all that’s happening is that those energies we haven’t noticed or sensed or felt before are just becoming amplified in our energy.

Okay? So think of like your dog, Stella, who is like a daughter to you. She was always with you before this life. Join you in the physical world, left you in the physical world, joins your energy in the spiritual world now. So really, has she ever not energetically been with you? No. No. So the same goes for guides.

So we’ve got our main spirit guides, which are the ones that are her intuition and that are just our core, our rock, our non-negotiables. and then our spirit team [00:11:00] is everything else. And our spirit team can also include energies from other realms, other lifetimes that are here to support us. So oftentimes people think needs this example.

There’s different types of goddesses. Isis, there’s a ton of ’em. Yeah, I can only . And what happens is that energy. And what that energy will do is, so Nyan helps balance the feminism, the feminine. So Nyan will come and support all the souls, all of the energies that want to receive to their own personal degree and choice a level of balancing the feminine question.

Yeah. Does that in any way relate to the chak? . So, and why I ask is if you can tie a goddess to each one of your chakra colors. Oh, that’d be [00:12:00] cool. That’d be kind of cool. Yeah. Um, , the guys are so funny. They’re like so jovial. They’re like fun concept , but they say it kind of takes away from, it does. You need the two to be separate.

Well, hang on a second. They’re kind of correcting me now. They’re saying, but say, if that felt true to you and you want it, and if that felt like in a phase of your life that that would feel good and it would help you learn and grow, then why not? So yeah, there we go. And the other thing spirit guides is you and I are human.

we are be for yourself, . So this is kind of funny, everybody here on earth is human. No matter how you define, say you’re like, I’m a, you know, maybe you’re like, I’m a witch, so blah, blah, blah. You’re actually still human. Totally. You’re human . So what happens is [00:13:00] you and I are, we were born women in this lifetime.

We’ve chosen to be women in this lifetime continuously, and people think, oh, well, our spirit guys are like us. They must be masculine or feminine. Our other as well, So we project our experience onto our spirit guides and we say, oh, you know, it’s a swing on the earth plane, so therefore it’s this way in spirit guide realm.

So is my guy a man or a woman, or what are they? And we want them to show us, show us features, you know? Yeah. We want them to be familiar. Exactly. And it can get dicey because. , when we seek that, there’s always an energy that will show up that way for us. So that’s why you wanna connect your inner light first, because then you’re only gonna connect with your spirit guides as opposed to another energy.

It’s like, sure, I’ll show up for you and show you that I’m a, you know, look this way and I act that way. So I always, the [00:14:00] guides always say like, Lean back into your light or your heart and trust us, like, but it’s trust, the feeling versus what we wanna physically see. And part of the reason they want us to do that is because let’s pretend you connect.

You were like, I wanna know how many spirit guides I have and what do they look like and are they man or woman? Because as humans we like to quantify things we like and we wanna feel to know safe. Yeah, of course. It’s so nor it’s so normal. Pretty, those are the mushrooms. I like, guys are so pretty, look like stairs.

So, um, say for example, I’m totally making this up. You have five guides and you’re like, okay, I wanna connect with ’em. How many are there? And then, and kinda doesn’t matter. Cause like we said, our energy’s kind of always expanding. We have access to all of it. So how many guide do you have is sort of irrelevant.

So question. , do you know how many guides you have? ? I haven’t leaned [00:15:00] in and asked them that in forever to say years. And they go decades because Okay. I just continue to lean into the energy. Yeah. And when you lean into the energy and ask for support versus leaning on one. Yep. Spirit guide, one spirit guide can only help you so much.

And that’s where I was going with that is like if you know you have a specific number and you’re always going to a specific. . Yeah, yeah, exactly. It makes it a different experience. You’re not expanding and you’re not growing, reaching your new potential. Yeah. Yeah. And the other thing, and that’s the exact point, so say you’re like, okay, this spirit guide’s a man, and his name’s Bob , and he wears a cowboy hat, and that’s how he identifies.

What’s gonna happen is you’re gonna continue go to Bob versus going to your own inner light and saying, I trust my expansion. I trust my higher self, I trust my source. I’m leaning into that and Bob’s gonna be on the sideways cheering me off. Yeah. And coming into, and the other aspect is, [00:16:00] so on our spirit team, I’m not really, our spirit guides.

Our spirit guides don’t really have. , like, I mean, , they don’t have a gender. They Thank you . Okay. Wow. I’ve never asked them. They have sex. I’m like, what? How are new spirit guides made, Emily? Exactly. They’re shaking their heads. If only, um, they’re saying there’s other pleasures in those realms. That’s cool.

I’m sure there are. Um, so when it comes to our spirit team, we will, there will. More masculine or more feminine or more androgynous energies. So it is normal. Like is a perfect example. She helps balance the feminine. Obviously she’s gonna be a strong feminine energy. So that’s another reason I think we’ve all kind of gotten confused, very understandably, is that there are strong male and female energies out.

There’s When you say we’re confused, do you mean [00:17:00] like with the current climate of pronouns of No kishi them, they, no, I mean, . That’s actually, that’s interesting. Um, because I have client, client clients who are a part of that, what I’m gonna call a movement with the guides that called a movement. And it is a movement.

Yeah. It’s a movement for more love in the world and actually for us to look within more. Totally. Which is doing everything we’ve been told. So anyway, um, no, I mean, when we, like right now, because I left my corporate job, I’m bringing in a lot more feminine energy, which is Ian Energy. Did you say yin? Yeah.

What’s so funny is a minute ago when you were saying it’s a strong female energy, I’m like, okay, everything in life is balanced, right? Mm-hmm. , so if there’s a yin, there has to be yang . Yeah. Yeah. Yin and yang. I don’t know if I’m pronouncing that right. I think it might be yin and Yong, but you get the idea.

Totally brings it back to middle school where we all had those T-shirts with Y and yang. [00:18:00] And we had no idea what it meant. And no fear shirts and hyper collar shirts. It’s Stussy or Stusy Stuy. That’s right. . Yeah. I can still draw the S . You . So what where we get confused is we do you know, every human is energy able.

All of us have these abilities, we just haven’t been taught them. So you may pick up on a more feminine or more masculine energy in your spirit team and therefore, You naturally think, oh, I’m male or female or other. Therefore, my spirit guides are we project, and instead we wanna look at it as what’s coming in to help us, what’s coming in to support us.

And it all brings us back to trusting ourselves, our higher power. And the guys really drive home this word expansion. They say humans don’t feel safe to expand yet. , is it because of fear? A hundred percent. Yeah. [00:19:00] I mean, indoctrinated fear times a thousand. Yeah. Interesting you say that because one of the things that I’m curious about is this huge religious push in the US right now by, let’s call them evangelical Christians.

Okay. And I wonder like they’re so indoctrinated, right? , is it because, is it a false source that they’re following? Like what? Yeah. I see. What’s the deal? So let me see. Are they not in touch with any type of source besides the one that they are taught and that’s it? Right. And they’re not open to receiving?

Sure. I mean, I’m, I’m asking my guides or I’m asking spirit, right? Because there’s my opinion, based on my experience and totally the bigger picture. Yep. And

[00:20:00] we put, they’re saying, we put a lot of labels on what’s good and what’s bad, and that’s what helps growth. And they say, until you are pressed, you don’t grow as much and. The other night I was out with a friend who was sharing me with me that in her mom’s group, all of these women e es, essentially from the outside looking in have everything they get to be stay-at-home moms, they’re wonderful parents.

They don’t worry about money, have all husbands, they’re all miserable. Why is that? Well, it’s cuz on the one hand, society or religion and the example you gave has said, Hey, welcome to this world. This is how you do it, right? So what escapes you is, and that’s why we feel so challenged, trusting our intuition, because what escapes you is trying new things.

Feeling things out. F Tripping and falling. Yeah. Making mistakes in life. It’s [00:21:00] the fear of uncertainty. Of course. Dating the wrong person. Whereas if our parents raised us to say, Hey, you’re gonna have a plethora of different types of experiences in life. What did you learn from it? What did you, what do you want?

As opposed to saying, well, you have to stick with him because our religion or our society says so, or You need to have kids by 26. Or it. Your mother and your grandmother, and everybody’s done. Of course. And it’s confusing because sometimes we do want those things and then at the same time we feel it called in another direction, and there’s not always one path for us in life or some people, their path is super straightforward, super crystal clear, and that’s what’s really projected in our world.

That’s what we see a lot of the successes on, on TV and in social media, when in actuality, most of us are on this journey. Explore a variety of different things. Okay. And that’s what makes you happy. Cuz once you traverse all these different experiences, [00:22:00] then all of a sudden you’re like, ping, ping, ping. Oh, these are the things that I like.

These are the things that I don’t because you’ve experienced them and that’s why. And then you make different choices. Absolutely. And that’s why I’ve always said, you know, people are like, well, do you travel so much? And I’m like, yes. I love to travel because I. To learn and to experience new and different things totally outside of what I grew up with.

Totally. To see different cultures and different ways that people do things or don’t do things or what’s acceptable to some people is absolutely not to another group. And then how many times have you come back from a feeling different about yourself? Every time. Exactly. Every time. Because you see, especially for me growing up as a white woman in an affluent community, how much I do have, mm.

So on days where I’m like, oh my God, I have nothing to wear, or blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Or you know, of course Ice, ice, my ice maker broke in my fridge. So I’m like, repair man, and how much is [00:23:00] this gonna cost me? Right? But in the big scheme of things, right, they’re literally, and people use this as a joking phrase, but they’re literally all first world problems, right?

Because I’ve been to places in deep South Africa, orphanages and villages where. These kids have nothing. Uhhuh , and they are the happiest children you’ll ever meet in your life. All they want is a hug. All they want is a high five. They’re just happy. They’re alive. They’re present. They’re present. To go back to the religious thing, it’s like it’s hard for me.

Two, the goats are there. . You know, I will say this, one of the things the spirit always says is they go, when you find your inner truth and your inner happiness, which is an entire life’s journey, it’s you. There’s so many phases and developments for it. That’s when you get to share those [00:24:00] experiences with the world and make it a better place.

So there’s no, which I agree with you. But I believe the world has become so divided, especially in, of course now that people won’t listen. Well, it’s not a, so that’s such a good point cuz I’ve asked the guys spirit time and again, what do I do? What do I do? Yep. And they go, you need to be brighter in your light.

Which means, what is my truth? What is my joy? Because when you emanate that, you’re sending that ripple out into the world. But that’s what’s hard for me is. Everybody has a choice in life, and I believe in freedom of choice. Right. Unless of course you’re born into certain circumstances, then those choices are very different.

Yes. Yeah. But to take away someone’s ability to choose for themselves, right. That’s what’s difficult for me, and this is a lot of, when you agree, it sends me into a rage. I mean, I, I teach feeling calm within yourself and being connected to your right and. [00:25:00] My ego gets rageful at these things as it should, cuz it’s, this is part of, you know, there’s been a lot of unearthing of these old, old patterns and constructs coming up for us to reface in a new way because clearly it hasn’t been cleared out yet.

One of my friends put it in a very succinct way that was kind of eyeopening. She said, my daughter is going to have less freedoms than I did growing up. Which was really sad to me. Yeah. And that’s why we have to be loud and make those changes, especially for people who don’t have access to the support and the, what’s the other word means that we do.

Yeah. So, and it’s baby steps, you know, I remember years and years ago, I, I was always wanting to reach out and [00:26:00] help people, and my guides would physically pull my body back and say, how’s your energy, what’s it doing? When you say help people, like what kind of, anyway, anyway, I was, I was always donating money and, yeah.

Yeah. Like that kind of thing. Um, but like physically helping people, right? Yeah. and be it energetically or volunteer and they pull my energy back and be like, how is your energy doing Like, which is fair? I’m like, I don’t even know . It’s zapped. I’m tired. But this is, especially women, this is what we do. We give, we help.

We support. Yeah. And the guides go. You have to take care of your energy first because when you do that, you’re gonna be able to, he a help people better and also helping people for the right reasons from a full. And then we get more accomplished, and then we’re not putting out fumes as if we’re putting out really good golden light.

So it took a couple years and finally I figured out ways to refill my cup, which is [00:27:00] I still work in progress and I think will always be part of my journey, which is something I respect about you, because if I’m like, Hey, do you wanna go do this? You’re. , thanks, but no. Mm-hmm. , because that’s given me the courage in a lot of different aspects of my life to protect my own energy and be like, not feeling it today.

Yeah. Yeah. That’s, you know, it’s a big one for all of us, and that’s, Still. I mean, I wish I would’ve learned it when I were younger. Oh right. I think we all would have appreciated that. Yeah. And we all know, like we do that, you know, where does people pleasing come from? Comes from a lack mindset. If I say no, will I have another opportunity?

If I say no, will I survive? Right. Like, you know, there’s, we have these crazy, crazy underlying fears cuz we used to live in such stronger communities. Where if I say no to hanging out with you, Lauren, will you reject me in the future? And then will I survive cuz I won’t have access to your resources. So it’s a real, it’s a [00:28:00] deep, it’s deeply rooted in our dna, in our lineage, in our energy.

Interesting. Yeah. And the people pleasing. It’s not just about, oh, I’m gonna set my boundaries and raise my vibration, which I’ve said before, and it does do that. But it’s scary because it’s actually people pleasing to survival instinct. So what are some Thanks for sticking with me. . No, I find this enthralling.

What are some aspects of people pleasing that you see often that are. More draining than they are fulfilling the food we eat, we go out to a restaurant, the quality of food is poor. Everyone, but everyone else is doing it. It’s too salty. We don’t wanna waste food, we don’t wanna waste, it’s too much waste money.

Yep. Everybody else is eating. They might judge me, they might judge me if I eat it all. They might judge me if I don’t eat enough of it. Um, that’s probably one of the biggest ones is how we, it’s natural as humans to commune over. And our food [00:29:00] sources are so poor at the moment. Like we don’t realize how much of the products we consume are completely overprocessed.

Not actually, they’re a hundred percent created in labs. Yeah. Which is really scary. And then they use these things as preservatives. So, yeah. Um, and it’s interesting you say that because when I was in Scotland, I just felt so much better. I know. And I’d wake up with so much more energy. I know. and I, I know just like everything tasted better.

I know. It had like taste. I know, I know. So I remember I had these tomatoes in Germany. Oh. And I go, if tomatoes tasted like this, everyone would eat ’em all the time. Because there’s so many things that we buy at the grocery store that look pretty and perfect, like strawberries. Right. And they have zero flavor.

Yep. Or they’re like so tart, you just can’t even, yeah. So food is a big one and a lot of our day-to-day. So we’ll create our to-do list based on what we’re supposed to do. [00:30:00] And this is something I’ve really shifted and I’m like, okay, what if the laundry doesn’t get done today? Now it’s easy for me to say, because when you have kids that have sports, they need clean stuff.

Yeah. But the guides say it’s about breaking up a system. It’s as much as it’s about boundaries, it’s about having the bravery to say, what do I need? And then asking for it. We have a fear of being rejected, which is inner child. For asking for something and that person not giving it to us, that’s one of the biggest, the guides say it’s like a gaping hole in our hearts and they go.

What’s funny is it can be the smallest trigger. It doesn’t have to be something grandiose. It can be small things too, and it, and then it all adds up and builds. So the way we combat that and work on. is with a million and a half baby steps of what do I need right now? What would feel good, which is [00:31:00] counterintuitive, especially as women.

Yep. We’re like, oh, that’s so selfish of me. I have to Right. You know, feed my kids and all this other stuff. And of course you do. That’s important too. But when you start filling up your cup, everybody has three to five minutes a day. Everybody does. And if you can do one thing that makes you feel good, that energy then is like a tuning fork in your body.

And every time you do that, that’s something that’s such a small amount of time though. Is it multiple times a day or just like, I need five minutes a day for myself. . So for example, how much time do you set aside to your, for yourself in a day just to focus on your wellbeing, journaling, meditating, reading, an inspirational book, gardening, whatever it means for you?

I don’t, I don’t wake up in the morning and set intentions like Right. You’ve told me to do for, oh, I mean, how long? Well, an inten, the thing I like about intentions is that they take a millisecond and you’re literally [00:32:00] giving energy direction. Mm-hmm. So that’s why it’s kind of a good one to start people out with.

But if you, but if it doesn’t feel true to you, don’t do it. But I feel like when I set my intentions, it’s gonna be a to-do list. Oh. So like, I’m like, okay, here are my intentions for today. Like, I’m gonna do my laundry. I’m gonna go for , I’m gonna go for a walk. I’m gonna mop the floors. I need to give the dogs a bath.

Like, okay, I need to figure out when I’m going with Diana to. Plants so I can redo my pots because it’s bad fi way to have like, I’m so glad dead plants shared this. I had no idea. Yeah, no, an intention is telling energy what to do and letting it go. So an intention would be like, okay, I set the intention that today, you know, let’s say that is your to-do list for the day.

Mm-hmm. , you know, I set the intention that my day goes smoothly, um, with ease and joy and that I am supported. I set the intention for happy surprises. I set the intention for joyful moments today, and then you let it go. You’re [00:33:00] basically saying, Hey, universe, Hey God, hey, source. Hey Ala, hey, whoever, cosmos, um, whatever.

This is what I’d like. This is what I’d like today. You’re literally, it’s like putting a wish out there into the universe. It’s the opposite of like literally writing. Yeah, yeah. Pick up the poop in the yard, like, right. So that’s why I say to people to start with three to five minutes. because what’s gonna happen is it’s gonna feel really weird at first.

It feels so weird. It’s like, you know, we don’t start out our life running. We start by rolling over and then crawling a little bit and then holding ourselves up and then walking. Right? Yeah. And it’s the same with taking care of your energy. You need to start. Something small, three to five minutes, and you know, there’s a hundred me good meditations on YouTube.

Do you write down your intentions? No. Mm-hmm. I just say ’em to myself, roll over or, or I, I’m like, Hey, spirit team, will you please rent energy for me for my highest good right now? You can do that anywhere, [00:34:00] anytime. Define highest good. Okay, so, so this is like, what’s the overarching theme? Of highest good, highest good 1 0 1 or Yeah.

So when you, um, one of the universal laws of energy is that like energy 1 0 1 is what you could call this? Yeah. Um, it’s like, what is a meditation? What does it look like? What can it be like? And it’s not prescribed, right? It’s not like it’s 10 minutes sitting in this, heck no, no position. See, this is where again, people, we all get confused and we don’t do it cuz we feel like it’s not enough or that we’re doing it wrong.

It’s not what, and it’s because we don’t know, at least me, I don’t know where to start. Nobody does. So that’s why I’m asking all these questions like what are guides? What are intentions? What is a meditation in any of its forms? What are the benefits of journaling? Like how do I find my guides? Or what’s the difference between intuition and guides?[00:35:00]

Energy 1 0 1, we’re gonna have to do a few more of these. . I’m down. I love these questions though. Um, so because you know this stuff and it comes to you intuitively, right? Yeah. And no pun intended, . And what’s interesting is there’s no one answer for everyone. Exactly. Yeah. And that’s why it’s hard for. As a triple Virgo, right, who loves structure and logic for there not to be an answer, which is why my brother being a philosophy major, I’m like, , that kills me.

I know. . Hey, I’m a Pisces, and philosophy kills me. Yeah. Well, let’s table that for next time. Great question.
