… I got answers! (sort of, anyway)
The Darling Gal asked this question in the comments on the post “To-Do List from the angels”
“Just woo-woo curious â€” Do you ever know the final outcome? Do the angels know whatâ€™s going to happen and report, or can they change whatâ€™s going to happen? Sorry if these are remedial questions, but Iâ€™m new to understanding the woo-woo.”
Good question! I have a tendency to think that everyone understands “the woo” in the same way I do so I always appreciate questions that remind me to explain myself better. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to do that, Gal!
I shall caveat my answer with this: this is how *I* understand it to be. I am not saying that it’s THE way (mostly since I don’t think there is ONE way for anything) but it’s the way it feels to me. That said, let me see if I can clarify things.
Guides and teachers cannot interfere with your free will. You are the one who always makes the choices and can change them at any time. Imagine a board of advisors who sit with you at a round table. You are sharing with them what your intentions are for the next year. They can offer you suggestions as to what might be a good way to get there. They can also offer alternatives. In the end, though, it’s always down to you to make the final decision.
In addition, they cannot offer guidance unless you invite them to do so. The only time (again, as I understand it) they can jump in unbidden is if your life is in danger and it’s not your soul’s wish to leave the physical plane. Unless you’re Bella in Twilight, that doesn’t happen too often.
In my case, my Guides know that my heart’s desire (besides David Cook, being tall and thin and baby-holding) is to broaden my work as an intuitive. I’ve clearly put that intention out there and allowed the Universe to assist me with it. My part in it is to remain conscious (as opposed to in a coma? heh) and note the “coincidences” that come to me with regard to that intention. Like the blue balloons that I got as a response to my hysterical whining in the car that one time, or that I got two requests for intuitive readings and the individuals offered to pay me for them. (Not that it’s such a shock but I didn’t ask for payment at all and it was a really nice validation that the work I do will help support me financially.)
Gal also asked if the angels know the outcome – because the free will thing comes into play, the answer is no. You put the intention out there and ask for help. Then you pay attention to what comes in front of you – opportunities, coincidences, shifts and changes in things around you. At any time, you can change your route and your guides will be right there alongside you like a trusted team of advisors and friends who want only your highest good. Doesn’t mean weird stuff won’t happen to you as you move along that path. But if you ask “what is the lesson in this?” and really try to understand it from that perspective, the weird stuff flows through a bit faster.
I hope that answered your questions, G. Again, this is from my reading but more importantly, my experience. The readings I’ve done for everyone have been like that. The Guides nudge you a bit where you are slacking off, or help you see things that you might not notice. I truly find that the more I work with them collaboratively, the more things seem to come together and flow.
I enjoyed your answer. Not only because you were gracious enough not to speak down to me (thanks) but also because the content is so empowering. Our lives are indeed OUR lives, which means it’s never too late for us to change if we really want to. That’s so cool.
And speaking of guidance, I took the Angel Advice I received through you and included a note on my mom’s birthday card, a sincere message about how much I still need her. It made her so very happy!
