Spirit Guide Challenge: An Introduction

As I readied myself to post a reminder on my Instagram today, I realized I was getting ahead of myself and that it would be worthwhile to post a basic primer in this space for those new to the topic of guides.

Before we get into a couple basics, I’m going to add a big ole disclaimer now so I don’t need to keep repeating myself. No one can tell you what any of this definitively is, what it means or how it works. All the information contained in this challenge has been interpreted through my own filters and set of experiences. If your views differ, it doesn’t mean they are wrong. If you experiences vary, it doesn’t mean they lack legitimacy. I believe we all perceive that which exists tangibly and that which exists spiritually through our own unique lens. And my understand of these things continues to evolve and change. So we must timestamp this to say that on this date, the information contained within fits the framework I’ve come to understand - but that’s not to say things can’t change.

Also, your guide doesn’t care if you know its type or whatever. These concepts are very human in the sense that they allow us to box things in for better understanding. That’s okay - but it’s also okay to just let it be what it is without labels or explanations. Go forward as you feel is best!

Meet Your Spirit Guide - A 31 Day Challenge To Bridge The Connection

In 2016 I ran a challenge on social media called Meet Your Spirit Guide. In the short span of a month, I watched as hundreds of connections formed across the globe between us and our guides who tirelessly cheer us on.

It was eye opening and fun as hell and in January 2019, as a way to kick off the New Year, I’ve decided to bring it back!

I’ve changed up some of the prompts and so I hope some of you who joined in 2016 are keen to dive back in next month. Because we have such vast teams and because 2 years has passed, it’s likely you’ll connect with a new guide this round.

After the cut, you’ll see a full list of prompts. There are some that may benefit from a bit more explanation and so I will be very active posting to my stories on Instagram to add context to what we’re exploring. There is NO guidebook with this one and so while there is so much to say on the topic, I also want to keep it simple!

Using Tarot to Communicate with Spirit

Tarot has many uses, and one day I intend to write a blog post detailing the ones I go to most commonly, but today, I want to tackle just one - communicating with spirit.

Before we get into techniques, I first want to distinguish this method of using tarot from regular spirit-chat when it comes to divination or reflective readings. When I'm doing a reading, especially for others, I often refer to the messages received as having "come from spirit". So, when I send email reports out, I'll have lines that read "spirit says..." or "spirit wants you to know...". This is not me specifically communicating with a deceased loved one, for example, but simply put, I use the word "spirit" to describe a large body of otherworldlyness - i.e. your spirit guide team, your higher self, the divine source etc.

How Does Tarot Work? I Don't Know, But I Have 4 Theories!

Maybe you've been reading the cards awhile or perhaps you just started - whatever boat you're in, have you ever stopped to consider why or how the cards work? The truth is, no one can tell you for certain, but I have a few theories which we'll get to in a moment! In fact, I believe all of the following ideas to be contributing factors as to why/how a tarot reading works. This means that there doesn't have to be just one answer and it also means that this is in no way a conclusive list. These theories may ring true for you or you may have your own ideas that explain how tarot works and that is all perfectly acceptable and valid. 

So, without further ado, I'll now present you with 4 reasons that may explain why/how tarot works.
