Yesterday morning, I was laying in bed in the early dawn hours when my significant other suddenly woke me up.
That evening, he had made reservations for us at two restaurants neither of us had been before.
He wanted me to choose, restaurant #1 or restaurant #2?
Of course, I had a mini freak out. I wanted to Yelp them both, check out the reviews, find out the type of food they served and then, make an informed decision based on what I wanted and what others suggested.
But I didn’t have that option.
With my SO standing over me - demanding to know - would I choose restaurant #1 or restaurant #2 - I had only one option at my fingertips.
Ask my Spirit team.
So, I told him to hang on while I closed my eyes.
I asked my Guides, Angels, Loved Ones and frankly anyone could help out at the time,
Which restaurant is going to be the most delicious? Restaurant #1 or restaurant #2?
In my mind, I imagined a store front on the right that I called “#1” and a storefront on the left that I called “#2.”
I waited to see what happened while he leaned over the bed.
Restaurant #1 began getting bigger and bigger in my mind’s eye - a clear sign to me that this was my answer.
It was done - I told my significant other my answer and he canceled the second reservation. That was that.
Later that evening, as we were getting ready, I started thinking.
Going to a new restaurant in the first place is such a risk.
You never know what the best dishes will be or if the vibe will fit your tastes.
What if you get seated at a bad table?
What if I choose the wrong thing?
What if the waiter’s tastes are different than mine, and the recommendation isn’t good?
What if I don’t like what I order and I have to suffer through it?
Determined to make sure we had a good meal, and with little time to page through Yelper’s comments, I asked in my mind again,
“What is the tastiest dish at this restaurant?”
In my mind, an image started to appear - kind of like the way a memory does. I began to visualize an image of something that was creamy, saucy, orange in color and I heard the word, “buttery.”
I walked into the living and told him what I wanted to eat:
- Something creamy
- Something saucy
- Something orange
- And something buttery
With no prior knowledge of what they served at the restaurant, he had no room to argue. And so, he agreed.
Upon arrival, I realized he had chosen an Indian restaurant. Whew, what a relief. At least some Indian dishes, I speculated, would probably align with my earlier visualization.
As we were seated and handed our menus.
Before he opened the menu, he turned to the waitress and asked,
Do you have something creamy, saucy, orange in color, and could be specifically described as buttery?
They did. She knew exactly what he was talking about.
The dish I visualized was called Makhani (literary meaning ‘with butter’) and she believe it to be the best dish they served.
YES! I thought, trying to keep my excitement to myself.
What followed, was by far the best Indian food we have ever had in our entire lives.
As we finished the meal, I made sure to thank the Spirits for their recommendation that led us to this restaurant, having this amazing meal.
And we contemplated, who *exactly* do you think it was that made the suggestion?
A life-long lover of exotic cuisine, I knew my father, now in Spirit, had something to do with such a specific recommendation. Of course, he would be ‘in the know’ on the best thing to order at a new restaurant.
You, too, can ask your Spirits anything.
Many times, the things we need help with in our lives are the practical day-to-day stuff and your Spirits, know that. Their specialty is helping you with human things of all kinds - no matter how small or large the quest, your Spirits love to help with any favor.
If your mom was a specialist in finding the best plumbers, ask her to help direct you to finding someone.
If your uncle was an expert in hunting gear, ask him to go with you to Cabela’s to pick out the best deal on a knife.
If your brother was an expert in understanding his wife, ask him for his insights on best dealing with her, now that he’s crossed.
It doesn’t always have to be serious. It doesn’t always have to be profound. It can be, but it’s not a requirement.
Those on your Spirit team can help you with mundane, practical things, too. And they’d be happy to do so.
For the record, I have asked my Loved Ones, Angels and Spirit Guides for help with:
Knowing how many Christmas lights my new tree needed, when I was already at the store and had forgotten to take measurements.
How many quarts of oil (and what type) my sister’s car needed to do an oil change, without consulting the manual before heading to the auto parts store.
Directing me to the best parking spot on a city street when I was running short on time.
You can ask your Spirits stuff like this. I encourage you do - especially since it’s so easy. Getting this kind of guidance is not reserved for mediums alone.
How to Begin
To begin getting helpful guidance, all that is required is that you ask and give those in Spirit an outlet to reply.
Spirits can answer your question through your intuitive senses or through physical tools like a pendulum or oracle cards.
Headed to the grocery store later?
Try my technique. When you next find yourself standing in front of 8 million jars of pickles, not sure which brand to choose or which is the best value, close your eyes.
