Frequently Asked Questions for
Receiving Inner Guidance

Is it wrong to go to someone labeled a healer or a psychic?

Holy Spirit will work through many mediums but one should first turn to Spirit to ask if this is for you. Place your faith in your connection to the Voice of God within and ask if a certain healer or psychic can help you.

Spirit can and will come in many ways, but does the answer pass the test of peace? If it doesn’t bring peace, he/she is not for you. There is no sin and therefore nothing we do is ever “wrong”. To understand such desires, ask Holy Spirit of all things: “What is this for?” Undoing the belief in magic is simply a lesson to be learned.

In the Manual for Teachers, pg. 42: “(Magic) can have no effects; neither good nor bad, neither rewarding nor demanding sacrifice, healing nor destructive, quieting nor fearful…Magic of any kind in all its forms, simply does nothing.”

What is the Holy Spirit? Can I access the voice of Holy Spirit if I don’t feel comfortable with using that word? Are my personal issues (big and small) worthy of your attention? How can I get over being ashamed of my negative thoughts?

Absolutely. The name, Holy Spirit, is just a name given to the communication bridge that we have with God while we are in the world of illusion. You might prefer another name, such as inner wisdom, higher self, universal intelligence, Jesus, angels, or even something else.

The voice of Holy Spirit wants us to bring any and all concerns, big and small, so that we can receive a healed perspective and the peace that goes along with that. It may be helpful to think of the Voice as a trusted friend to whom you can turn to with anything that troubles you. Any thought or feeling that doesn’t feel peaceful is worth bringing to Holy Spirit.

Don’t be afraid to bring all of your thoughts to Holy Spirit for healing. Guilt over negative thoughts is a common experience of the separated ones. Please don’t let this hold you back from bringing “shameful” thoughts to Holy Spirit for healing. In ACIM Jesus encourages us to keep nothing from him.

It is helpful to remember that ego thoughts are meaningless. They are not personal. They don’t belong to us, but simply come into our awareness. These thoughts are not good or bad, only true or not true. We are not defined by our thoughts and so it doesn’t mean anything that we find them in our awareness, and thus have no power to make us guilty.

Is it possible that the Holy Spirit answers the same question one way for one person and a different way for another person?

The Holy Spirit is the Voice of God that was placed in each of us, so we would be able to remember God when we believe we got lost in the dream. The Voice guides each one of us very specifically according to our needs. Since the Guidance grows with us as we grow, we also may hear a different answer in ourselves; continue to ask the Voice for guidance.

It seems exhausting to always stop and see what’s going on in my mind and go to Spirit.

As we practice more and more of being mindful of our thoughts and giving Holy Spirit our willingness, it becomes more natural and easier. In the meantime, it is tiring only because we have taught ourselves another way (by using the ego thinking mind) and we are resistant to undoing what we have made.

What does God want from me?

God wants only your happiness. He wants you to realize what you really are: the Holy Son of God…Love itself. So, Love yourself, love Him, Love what is.
