FYI ... I don't go to the Mountains to receive Spirit guidance. I simply go to fully empty myself, so that my head is clear and my thinking free of everything. When I'm there, I'm completely empty and I can completely tune into the Now. I go to feel my free Spirit and fully liberate myself time and time again. Because to live as free as a bird is a constant game of dedication to your true Self and your authentic path.
A big part of our ascended Source connection is maintaining our communication with Divinity. It is so important to meet your inner Master, the inner Wise Elder that wants to sit and commune with You. Here is a ceremony You can do to enter into this sacred space of communion:
"You can imagine meeting your Master on a bench, sitting in a pristine natural environment that represents the purity of consciousness, preferably next to a body of water which represents infinite flow. Imagine a bright White Light, out of which a majestic Being suddenly appears. How does this Being look, how do they approach You and what Essence do they emanate? Now imagine them sitting next to You as your best friend, with whom You can have any conversation You would like. See the infinity flow of connection that takes place between both of You, and how your sacred hearts are interconnected as One, speaking the language of the Divine. Then ask a question for your highest good (which is not a "yes/no" answer question) and watch your Master respond with Love. What insights are being offered to You? How can You expand through a higher perception which was just offered to You? How can You embody this Divine intelligence in your grounded physical reality? Then feel a wave of gratitude for everything You have received and joy overflowing your entire Being. You are at Oneness with your inner teacher, and You can sit in devoted communion at any time. You can use this daily communion as a part of your regular Ascension practice. Enjoy!"
You were meant to shine, Beloved! Your illumined Self wants to come to the surface and make love to All Life. It will not always be super obvious or even pleasant, for the Light of illumination often comes into the deepest darkness in order to enliven it with Life force and true Wisdom of Divine Love. It's also not always perfect in the way the Human self sees it, but the Heart of the Beloved recognizes everything as perfectly being of the Divine Plan and belonging to the breath of Life in Creation!
