Intuition Is the Soul’s GPS

When I was driving to a house sit last week, I found that my new GPS seemed to have a fault – it was switching itself off at key moments during my drive when I needed to choose a direction at an intersection or roundabout!

I didn’t know my way around the area I was in, and as I was heavily reliant on my GPS, it was all pretty stressful.

Once my GPS had switched itself off altogether (and my old, on-its-last-legs cellphone had run out of charge, too) my only option was to ask my guidance – which way do I go?

In the end, I managed to get to where I needed to be using my intuition.

This experience reminded me how much I rely on the GPS (as someone who drives a lot in unfamiliar areas) and not to mention, how heavily reliant I am on my intuition (which is essentially the soul’s GPS!)

Whenever I have to get from A to B in my life and reach an important goal, I ask for guidance to help me get there.

This guidance – the soul’s GPS – is available to us all, to help us to get to where we need to be.

And we are all born with the ‘software’ already installed in our GPS, along with a ‘destination’, which is essentially a loose roadmap of experiences, intentions, and lessons that our souls wish to have once we get here. (And this is something the soul puts in place before we even incarnate.)

And so we receive directions through this ‘GPS’:

You’re going the wrong way!

That road will take you the long way round, take this one instead. 

Keep going, you’re on the right track.

These directions come through our feelings, our thoughts, our visions, dreams, and even through song lyrics and the words other people say to us.

Co-creating with the Soul

But it’s not just about what your soul planned before you incarnated.

Once you’re here in this experience, YOU also get to decide what you want for your life, and set an intention around that, and if it fits in with your soul’s intentions for the areas you have decided to grow in, in this lifetime, you can make it happen.

This obviously has to be within reason. So, for example, if you want to be an NBA basketball player in this lifetime but you’re 5ft tall like me and not much of an athlete, that might not fit in with your soul’s plan (but reasonable desires and plans can often fit in with your soul’s intentions.)

So, this combination of your conscious will + your soul can be very powerful…

You, the human aspect, get to set your conscious intentions. And then your soul, being able to see more than you can, will direct you on how to get there through your intuition.

Do you have something you would like to create and manifest in your life?

Next I am going to share a little ritual I use to set my intentions and reach my goals. It is really simple and short, yet powerful:

1. Light a candle.

2. Take three slow, deep breaths.

3. Read the following aloud:

“My Higher Self, My Spirit Guides, my angels, and all the high-vibrational beings that surround me, I ask for your help in reaching the following goals, as long as these goals are in accordance with my highest path and purpose and in the highest good of all. 

(State your intentions here.)

Please give me intuitive guidance to help me to achieve them. Please impulse me so that I can recognize assistance and opportunities when they show up. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

A couple of months ago, I set an intention to buy my own home.

In response, my guides gave me a roadmap – a bunch of steps – to follow, to get me there. When I used the little ritual above, I also noticed a whole host of women’s faces, who I knew were my female ancestors, and I also knew they were supporting me in this step.

One of the ‘steps’ I was given to achieve my goal, was to do a past life regression session.

During the past life regression, I found that instead of going into a past life, I actually went into a lifetime that belonged to one of my ancestors, during a famine in Ireland. I was able to clear the influence of the stuck spirit of my ancestor who had died during this famine, and help her to go into the light. Her energy was with me, and it was a heavy, fearful and traumatised influence in the area of finances.

Be open to how your intentions will manifest

When asking for help in this way, we cannot be rigid – we need to be open to the strange and seemingly non-sensical impulses or guidance we may get. You may not understand now how the guidance you are getting will lead you to your goal – but you do not need to understand it yet. That is Spirit’s job.

Personally, I also do not assign concrete time frames to my intentions. I mostly prefer to leave things to Divine timing, to reduce stress and enable me to go with the flow.

Would you like to learn how to receive clear spiritual guidance to help you to reach your goals in life?

    Fantastic Blog! I am a cancerian, so love the part about intuition. I love the content each month, as it makes me learn more about the path and the soul. Thank you for all you do.
    Kindest regards

  2. Ana

    Very timely article – I am finding it very helpful. Thanks!

  3. René

    What is the purpose of lighting a candle?

  4. Eagle

    Great post! (And happy belated b-day?!) It’s exactly what I was thinking about recently. I have many dreams, but it seems that everything just fails in the end, then maybe I dream the wrong dreams? Maybe there’s something I’m made for (in addition to being a housewife). I hope that this ritual will help me. Thank you, Anna, for sharing your real experiences and real life examples. It really helps!!

  5. David

    Kia Ora Anna. So glad you’re back in New Zealand, sharing your energy with us. Love and blessings xxx

    This post is so timely & helpful for me right now, as I also have an Irish famine lifetime that I relived in a past life regression . . . the memory is strong of starvation (both food & love) as well as the homesickness that pursued me after emigration to Boston. I have healed from this lifetime in the last three years, first by journeying back to Galway & then through interaction with another Irish woman here in Vermont. I forgave & released the suffering I experienced then. Letting go of the pain from that past life has been liberating. Interestingly, I have a Vermont ancestor named Julia Dunn who has always haunted me. She died in a 1820 blizzard on her way home from a visit to a neighbor . . . her children were dispersed & her feelings of despair & abandonment have plagued me as well. Especially my fear of snowstorms has escalated. With no family responsibilities left now, I am giving myself permission to move on. Visiting places of interest, like Costa Rica, is helping me to let go of New England. Tomorrow I visit Sedona, Arizona for the first time! Thank you for sharing, Anna . . . .

    Thanks all for your comments!

    Gerard – pleased to hear that!

    Rene – in this ritual the candle, with its light, is a symbol of the divine.

    Eagle – that is interesting! I think that sometimes we fail in what we dream (in the usual sense of the word) but through that we can also gain something that the soul needs to learn or experience.

    And then sometimes of course we can set intentions that are not aligned with our soul’s plan.

    Thank you, Savannah x

    Carole – That is sad about your ancestor. Glad you are able to release it. Enjoy your visit to Sedona!

    Thank you for this, Anna. I’m really struggling in the worst way for spiritual guidance and support, and so I appreciate your giving us a “vehicle” through which we can access our intuition. I’m trying to get out of my own way and remember that Divine Timing plays a role in when things manifest, but it’s so so hard because I’ve been stuck in my circumstances for so long. I just want to be free of my situation for good.

    Anyway, I guess I’ll see what happens. Thank you, again! ?XOXO

  10. Melanie

    Thank you for this great article. Once again it came on time. I asked my guide to help me find this, I called it a prayer for them. I did write it down but couldn’t find it and when I read this I wrote it down again and I do remember the words now, thank you.

  11. Amanda

    Thank you so much for the article and ritual. I am going to try it one morning to move forward with finding another job that is more ful-filling/less exhausting. Right now, I am trying to work on releasing these mental blocks of fear. I feel like they keep my goals from manifesting. I have been sent little hints here and there from my guides, but I’m afraid to take those leaps or can’t figure out the steps to get there.
