How to Receive Answers from The Universe
Receiving answers from the universe is simple. Most likely, you can recall several cases when you’ve asked for guidance, and then you instantly knew. The beautiful thing with instant knowing is that there are no doubts. On the other hand, it’s easy to dismiss the gift of claircognizance because it doesn’t feel it has come from the outside. So, the question is more how can you fine-tune your ability to receive guidance.
1. Check Your Energy
The first principle of how to receive the answers from the universe is to check your energy. The energy you ask from determines the energy you connect to. This step might be easily overlooked or rushed through, but it’s essential. If you feel distressed about a situation and demand answers, you won’t get any, or your ego will answer. The thing when receiving answers from the universe is that you want to make sure it’s not your ego (or worse) talking to you. You can most likely get some insight, but it’ll create more misalignment if you follow it.
Before we continue, I invite you to recall the moments when you’ve been strongly guided. What energy did you feel in your body? This is exactly the energetic state of receptivity and allowing to be in when receiving answers from the universe. There is no sense of urgency, demand, fear, stress, or despair. Your energy is calm, centered and you aren’t dependent on the answer.
2. Check Your Intention
Another principle of receiving answers from the universe is to check your intention. This is a place to be super honest with yourself. And when you think you’re honest, go still deeper into your heart and soul. What is the actual reason you are asking for the guidance? How and why do you think the answer will benefit your life? Again, this greatly determines what is going to give you the answer. Wrong intentions connect us to wrong places, like the ego or the lower 4D.
A good type of intention is a desire to enhance your spiritual growth. Not because you hate where you are. Neither because you believe something is wrong with you and it needs to be fixed. But because your soul wants to expand and grow naturally. Because expansion is a part of who you are, and you’re coming from a place of love and knowing that you’re already worthy the way you are.
3. What Is Your Question?
Another tenet of receiving answers from the universe is to be clear on your questions. You’re guiding the flow of the energy here. Therefore it’s beneficial to have a good idea about what it is you want to know. The right questions come from the right energy and intention (steps 1 and 2).
Also, the deeper your question is, the more sophisticated and life-changing answers from the universe you’ll receive. By the quality of the question, the higher self or other beings you’re talking to know how mature you are. Also, if the questions are limiting, the guidance isn’t too practical or helpful.
4. Who Are You Talking To?
The fourth principle of receiving answers from the universe is to be clear on who you are talking to. Do you wish to connect with your soul? Your higher self? Or do you want to speak with some light beings, ascended masters, angels, archangels, or God? Before you begin, make it clear who you’re talking to and why you believe that being is the most suitable to answer your question.
The universe is a multilayered, multifaceted, multidimensional consciousness. There are all kinds of beings, and they’ll also give you different answers. Knowing who to talk to comes with practice. A good place to start is to strengthen the communication channel between you and your higher self.
The next step in receiving guidance from the universe is to shift yourself into a space of allowing. Allowing is a feminine state of being in which you move your active human self to the background. When you allow, you’re in a state of receiving instead of exerting your energy outward. You let the guidance from the universe come in instead of pushing your energy field outward (although ideally, your aura is expanded). You can practice allowing until you get good at it, and you can do it anytime, anywhere.
The sixth principle of receiving answers from the universe is to “listen outward.” Instead of searching for the answers or actively using your mind, you listen to the guidance that you’re allowing (step 5) to come in. There is a difference between thinking the answers with your mind and allowing guidance to come to your mind. It feels like you’re listening outward. Outside of your physical mind and body. You pick on the consciousness, frequency, images coming to you. Of course, it’s your body, energy, and the mind interpreting it, but if you’re attentive, you notice the guidance doesn’t originate in your mind. A mind is a tool for receiving and transmitting frequency.
7. How Does It Make You Feel?
And the last step of receiving answers from the universe is to see how the guidance makes you feel. If the previous steps are done correctly – especially if you’re in the right energetic state – the answers should feel good. The beautiful thing about receiving truth is that truth instantly destroys illusions. It creates space. Truth makes us feel more energized, spacious, clear, and aligned.
If you don’t feel that way after receiving guidance from the universe, it might be because you haven’t found clarity yet. You can improve your questions and continue. Or it can also be because the answer that came in isn’t it. There can be many reasons for receiving false information. The number one reason is if you didn’t take the time to master the first two steps. The number two reason is that your mind isn’t open. It wants to hear certain things while blocking out the truth because it doesn’t fit in with the complex theories of the mind. If that is the case, then it’s good to look at your beliefs about the topic of your question.
