So many of you, in your desire to be diligent about the path you are walking, seek the advice of others. We honour you for wanting to make good choices.
If you are seeking advice it is important to always use your discernment as the expert of your own life expression. It may be helpful to ask yourself, is the advice I have received what is best for me or what would be best for the person giving it? Are they living a life that is in resonance with how I would like to live? Are they wise, mindful, and conscious? Is this person my energetic peer? Is their advice focused on the empowerment of everyone involved? Does it feel loving, supportive, and expansive?
Another thing that is helpful to ask yourself is, am I looking for guidance, confirmation, or permission? Guidance is what you seek when you really don’t know how to proceed for your highest result and can help you get clarity on what is the right match for you. Confirmation allows you to affirm your own wisdom and can help you embrace your forward movement more confidently. Permission is looking for validation from others because you are still concerned about what others will think.
Knowing what your motivation is for asking for advice can be helpful. Dear Ones, ultimately the guidance you seek is within you if you simply ask to receive it and listen to the direction of your heart. Confirmation can be found by checking with a trusted source or by simply following the signs and synchronicities that point the way forward. And finally, as sovereign beings you don’t need anyone’s permission but your own to follow whatever path your soul is seeking. So in closing, the best advice is always the advice that helps you be truest to you. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
