This technique actually came from the polarity therapist in our office, Christine Collings. You can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. She has a new website which I will list here soon.
Check in with your higher self or spirit guides (whichever you want to call them) every morning when you wake up. Christine does it by smoothing the energy around each ear (to psychically hear better) and then just asking “What message do you have for me today?” You may only get one word at first, but the more you practice, the easier it gets.
She tells a story of when she first started doing this. She lived in Ohio. One morning she got up and asked, and the reply was “kitty litter.”
“Kitty Litter? Why did you tell me that?”
When she went out, the snow was everywhere and her husband was already gone to work. She spread kitty litter to get out of the driveway.
Just pay attention. You’ll be surprised what you’re inner guidance will tell you. The messages you can get for yourself are much more trustworthy (in fact, listening to your own guidance builds self trust) than you will ever get from a psychic, advisor or anyone outside your own body.
