How To Tell The Difference Between Spirit Guides, The Higher Self, and You!

Spirit GuidesDo you talk to yourself often and if so, are you sure it’s you that you’re actually talking too? If you’ve visited my website before then you know that we all have spirit guides and that they are actually pretty easy to communicate with! One of the most common questions I get is “how do I tell the difference between my higher self, spirit guide, and me?” It is something that certainly takes practice but in this article I am going to tell you, how to start deciphering between the three!

 The Higher self

If you’re clairaudient like I am (if you talk to yourself often then you might be too) then you probably hear spirit more often than you realize! The higher self is known for popping in at random times to deliver messages, insight, and even warnings. Our higher self LOVES to come through when we are doing mundane tasks such as washing the dishes, driving, folding laundry, and washing our hair.

The higher self is an extension of us and most of the time will come through as our own voice but usually with a difference in verbiage. Your higher self will never talk down to you, discourage you, or deliver information to you that could harm you in any way. When speaking to you, the higher self will have a calming and peaceful demeanor. It will deliver only messages of love…even if it is sometimes “tough love.”

An example of a conversation with the higher self might go something like this:

“I really need to make a change in my life but I don’t know where to start! What if I tell people who I really am and what I really want and then they hate me? It would be easier to just keep living this same day to day, that way I don’t have to risk being alone.”You

“It’s ok to make a change and we deserve this change. Things will unfold for you exactly as they should and while there may be a period of transition, this will be the best thing for us!”Higher Self

“Who am I kidding? I can’t make these changes, I can’t go out on my own. It’s a wonderful dream but nothing more.”You

“The worst thing in life you can do is be untrue to yourself and what makes you happy. You deserve happiness and you will achieve it if you believe in yourself. Do this for us!” – Higher Self

As you can see the higher self is loving, encouraging, and often uses words like “we” and “you” instead of I.

Spirit Guides

Each spirit guide has their own personality, their own way of communicating, and like the higher self they are always loving and encouraging. To me, the higher self and spirit guides are easy to get mixed up. That is why it is so important to get to know our guides! The best way to get to know your guides is through meditation. It is here that we can ask them to identify themselves, ask for their unique cue, and ask for a name!

Once you have started working with your guides on a regular basis it will be much easier to recognize them from the higher self. Spirit guides will usually sound different than our own voice; they may speak in an accent or their voice may come in as a different gender than yours. Your spirit guide is less likely to pop through unprovoked…unlike the higher self. Spirit guides are always on standby to help us but they don’t like to intrude, so unless it’s an emergency they usually sit back and wait until we call on them!

A spirit guide will usually give you a cue that it’s them. This could be visual, such as an image or flash of light; it could also be through their own mannerisms. Spirit guides can be funny…really funny or they can be short, firm, and to the point. Just like people (because they once were) each guide is unique and communicates in their own special way.

Getting to know your guides personally is the best way to recognize them and receive their internal guidance and messages.

You and Your Ego

Ahhh the ego, the wonderful wonderful ego. The ego has a bad rap ya know? Normally when we think about the ego we think of someone as being conceited, into themselves, and selfish but that’s not what I’m talking about here. The ego I’m talking about is the one that tries to play it safe.

That’s right, the ego is just trying to look out for you man! Usually keeping you safe means keeping you in your comfort zone. Keeping you in your comfort zone means talking you out of things that have any risk involved…at all.

The ego is the one that says even though you hate your job you should stay because it’s a steady paycheck. Your ego may also say that even though you’re unhappy in your relationship you need to stay because it’s too scary in the dating world.

Is your ego a jerk or is it just looking out for you? I guess that answer is up to you and how you choose to view things. I look at the ego as a scared little kid who just wants to be safe. This kid misses out on so much because he is constantly talking himself out of things. Viewing the ego this way allows me to have compassion for it, thus having compassion for the darker parts of myself. When my ego pops up I actually thank it for its concern but ask it to please take a backseat so my higher self can come through.

It may sound too good to be true but it actually works! I learned this technique in the book May Cause Miracles by Gabby Bernstein. I recommend this book to anyone trying to get closer to the higher self and move out of the space of the ego!

So to recap…

The Higher Self

  • Sounds like you but uses different verbiage.
  • Pops up at any time, especially during mundane tasks.
  • Uses “we” and “you” instead of “I”
  • Loving, supportive, wise, and encouraging.

Spirit Guides

  • Spirit guides have their own personalities, identities, and appearances.
  • They are very easy to communicate with once you start working with them!
  • Your guides will come through generally only if you call upon them.
  • Also always loving and encouraging

The Ego

  • The ego is the voice that says “I can’t”
  • Negative words, discouraging advice, and playing it safe are all identifiers of the ego.
  • Interrupts during higher spiritual guidance. The ego needs to be reigned in or it will pop through all of the time!

I hope this article has helped you to discern between the higher self, spirit guides, and you and the ego! For more in-depth development tips please check out the spirit guide e-course or the  5 week Intuitive Progression Course!


If You Have Any Of These 14 Characteristics You Might Be Born With Naturally Higher Frequency…


Everything is connected through a large entangled network, everything depends on everything else. That’s how the collective consciousness is created.

Each and every single being vibrates with its own frequency that comes from its soul. The higher the frequency the higher and more powerful the being is.

All through history there have been souls that kept the spirit and vibration of humanity high. These souls are of higher frequency.

However, in the past few decades there has been a drastic increase.

Large amount of children are born with a higher frequency to help the world raise its collective consciousness and, with that, our mutual frequency of vibration.

If you find yourself in 2 or more of these characteristics than you might be a high frequency being with a purpose to raise the frequency of the world:

Higher Frequency

– You have a deep desire to find your spiritual partner, family, home;

– You have excellent skills and a high level of intelligence, but it seems like you cannot find what you desire;

– You feel there are entities and angels around you. Sometimes you might even hear voices;

How to Cut Etheric Cords: A Ritual You Need to Know

by Tanaaz

Etheric Cords

Have you ever seen the etheric cord that connects you to every thing on this planet? 

You may get a glimpse of it every now and again, especially in your most meaningful relationships.

When we connect with another person, especially romantically we activate an energetic cord with them. As we continue through the relationship every interaction, thought, emotion and feeling is added to the cord.

Spiritual author Doreen Virtue describes it best- “etheric cords act like hoses, with energy directed back and forth between both people”

This cord has the ability to share energy and transmit a high frequency of communication, which may explain why we often feel and connect telepathically to our partners thoughts and emotions.

10 Signs You’re a Shaman & Don’t Know It

By Lissa Rankin


As I feel indebted to the shamans who saw themselves in me and helped me understand why I have always felt like I don’t belong in mainstream medicine, the intention of this article is to respectfully honor the shamanic tradition, and not to violate it in any way.

Because modern culture doesn’t have a role for the shamanic archetype, many people who grow up outside indigenous villages are shamans and don’t know it. Many naturally wind up in overtly healing professions, such as medicine, psychology, or life coaching. But some wind up in professions where they may feel like they don’t fit in at all. Even those who enter the healing professions may feel out of place, because the systems of Western medicine and psychology leave little room for a shaman to practice his or her natural healing art. But many will wind up in various forms of sacred activism, healing the planet, for example, rather than healing people.

Are you a shaman and you don’t know it? Here are some telltale signs that you might fit the archetype.

1. You sense that you’re meant to participate in the global shift in consciousness that is currently underway.

We can all feel it, this impending shift that New Agers have talked about for decades. But those with the shamanic archetype don’t just feel it, they feel it pulling them, like a magnet, towards leadership positions that help facilitate this transformation of human consciousness and evolution of the species.

2. You’ve been through a difficult initiation, which has prepared you for this leadership role.

In indigenous cultures, the village knew who the shaman was because he or she was struck by lightning and survived. In modern culture, you may not literally be struck by lightning, but you may have survived some other life or heart-threatening ordeal. You may have experienced childhood abuse, sexual violence, a near-death experience, or some other trauma that put you through the crucible and forged you into the healing earth shaman you are becoming.

3. You are an introvert.

Shamans are multi-dimensional beings who dance between the realms of the seen and unseen worlds, so if you’re of the shamanic archetype, you may have a hard time navigating the 3D realms of this dimension, which may cause you to withdraw into yourself so you can visit the realms of consciousness where you feel most at home.

4. You feel most at home in nature.

The shamans of a culture are the bridges between nature and humans, serving as translators between the mountains, oceans, rivers, animals, and people. You may sense that nature is talking to you or that you get your most tuned in downloads when you are surrounded by the natural world.

5. You’re very sensitive.

You may feels things others don’t feel, see things others don’t see, hear things others don’t hear, smell things others don’t smell, and sense things others don’t sense. This may make it hard for you to be out in public, where you may feel accosted by over-stimulation of your senses. If you embody the shamanic archetype, it’s likely that you’re the kind of person others may feel is “too sensitive.” But this sensitivity is a blessing. It’s part of your gift.

6. You feel a sort of spiritual calling to ease the suffering of people, animals, and nature.

Many health care providers are called to medicine the way priests are called to the priesthood. But you don’t have to be a health care provider to have the shamanic archetype. It may transmute itself into healing service to animals, sacred activist causes, or conservation of Mother Earth.

7. Physical ailments that fall under the category of “shaman sickness.”

In the indigenous cultures, shamans who have been called to service but haven’t yet said “yes” to the call often wind up struck with physical ailments. In modern culture, these shamanic sicknesses may fall into difficult to treat categories like chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, chronic Lyme disease, chronic pain disorders, and autoimmune disorders. Acceptance of the call to shamanic service often resolves the symptoms of shaman sickness. If you’re suffering from one of these illnesses, ask yourself, “Am I a shaman who hasn’t said yes to my calling yet?”

8. You tend to have vivid dreams.

The unseen realm may be communicating with you through your dreams, so try analyzing your dreams. Pay particular attention to any animal totems that may appear in your dreams. Google search the animal and “spirit totem” and see if you can find any messages from the animals in your dreams. Or try a Jungian analysis, like the one described here.

9. You may discover unusual spiritual superpowers, or what the yogis call “siddhis.”

You might be psychic. You might get healing visions like the one in my previous post about the meeting of Western medicine and Shamanism. You might realize that you can heal people with your hands or that you can telepathically communicate with animals, people, or even inanimate objects.

10. You’ve always felt like you don’t quite belong anywhere, because you are a bridge.

Shamans tend to live on the outskirts of the village for a reason. They are not like the others – and this is a blessing! In village life, this is understood and recognized. But in the modern world, it may leave those with the shamanic archetype feeling like they don’t ever fit in. But don’t despair. You DO fit in. Your role is essential. You may find that you fit in best with others who share this shamanic archetype. Among your fellow shamans, you will feel like you are with family.

Embrace Your Bridge Work

Because shamans are always operating between worlds, you may find that you’re connecting mainstream culture and the culture that wants to be born in the new consciousness, and this may feel uncomfortable, as if you don’t quite fit in. When I realized that I am a bridge between mainstream medicine and the new world of medicine that is being co-created by others who share the shamanic archetype, it brought me such a profound sense of relief! This relief is shared by the health care providers who participate in the Whole Health Medicine Institute, which I founded for doctors and other stealth shamans. If you’re one of those bridge workers, please know that you belong with all the other stealth shamans in this program, designed to merge medicine and spirituality, and we’re enrolling for the 2016 class now.

In our culture, it can be quite challenging to be a stealth shaman. Yes, it’s a blessing to have the opportunity to help people end the story of separation, to dissolve the apparent duality into Oneness, to fulfill our callings to bring the worlds together, to heal people, animals, and the planet. But it can be lonely and disheartening and scary and isolating. I sense that many of us stealth shaman bridge workers have scores of past lives during which we were persecuted for our attempts to connect the worlds, so no matter how much we know in our hearts that we are all One and we DO belong, we have cellular memories of past traumas, during which we were literally killed because we refused to fit in. So it takes tremendous courage to come out of the spiritual closet as someone who embodies the shamanic archetype. In order to keep being brave, we need to feel safe. To feel safe, we need to foster a sense of belonging so we don’t feel isolated on top of feeling scared. In order to feel safe enough to keep bridging, we need each other.

Are you a shaman who is still in the closet? If so, please know that there are many of us, and we hold you close in our hearts while you muster up the moxie to claim your place in the world.

To begin embracing your purpose, please feel free to check out my new book The Anatomy Of A Calling. Click the link below to see if it’s for you:

Here’s to bridging the realms and healing our world!

Empath Problems – The Entire Truth of What It Feels Like to Feel Too Much

By Calleen Wilder

empath problems

Since this is currently affecting my life in a rather big way, I wanted to share this for everyone’s benefit… empath or not.

As I’ve stated on many occasions, being an empath is not a great thing, even though a lot of people seem to aspire to it.

What it boils down to though is this… I can feel what you feel.  I don’t just have empathy for you about your feelings. Instead, I feel them as if they were my own.  Now multiply that feeling by all of the people you encounter in any given day.  If you do, it doesn’t take long to see just how exhausting being an empath is.

And yes, when I do readings for people I can automatically attune to what’s bothering them, along with very quickly being able  to sense their present state of mind and emotions.  Reason is, this is what I do… automatically.  There is no shut-off.

So while this makes me incredibly accurate, it also takes quite a toll on me.  In fact, this is the reason I can’t do nearly as many readings as I used to… or even as I’d like to.  As I age so does my tolerance of being depleted.  It seems I have less energy at my disposal, equating to less energy to give.

Bottom line is, every encounter I have with another individual is energetically charged for me.  If they’re happy, so am I.  If not, well down the rabbit hole I go.

Most people who aren’t empaths really don’t get this.  They believe that because they have the ability to care about what someone feels, it means they’re empathic too.  But, it doesn’t.

Empath Problems – What to Look Out For if You Feel Too Much!

Calleen Wilder


Over the years I’ve heard many people wish they were Empaths, but I never understood why.  Sure, for a time it might have seemed cool to be so “plugged in”.  But personally, of all the wonderful gifts I have this is the one I’d likely give back.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love being able to really understand what a person is feeling simply because it helps me relate.  It also quite obviously amps up my compassion for them to a level most, who aren’t empaths, can even begin to comprehend.  BUT… it also drains me.  And I mean drain as in not one ounce of energy left to do anything more than sit and stare blankly into space while I try to recharge.

Too, once drained you can’t recharge with people around… any people. Nope.  You have to be isolated and alone.  You also have to work to clear your mind, and heart, of whatever it was that drained you in the first place.  Then, you just have to allow your body time to regroup.

People nearly always get that you get them too.  They usually even feel lighter after having interacted with you.  I love this about it.  Problem is, a lot of people want to soak up your mercy.  To the point that they dip into your pool of caring as casually and carelessly as they dunk a piece of bread into gravy… just sopping up and absorbing all the goodness you have in you.  Many don’t care what it costs you as long as they get their “need for you” filled.

In the end, there really is such a thing as feeling too much.  There also really are energy vampires out there.  We empaths have to learn to recognize them, tune them out of our energy field as much as possible, and leave them in their stew.  We must learn how to walk away from them no matter how much we care about them.

Over the last year I’ve done a lot of pruning of people and situations from my life.  AND… that alone was exhausting.  I learned though.  I learned who brought energy to my life and who took it.  I mean there’s always an energy exchange between people… that’s what connecting is.  But you should leave a situation feeling at least as good as you did when you entered, even when hard things were discussed.

You see that’s how you know who contributes and who drains your life.  When there’s an equal exchange of energy between people, regardless of the topic of conversation, you don’t suffer like you do when there isn’t.  And yes, people who are good for you will sometimes be going through hard times and exhaust you.  That is to be expected.  Rather it’s the ones that drain you during almost any interaction that you need to be alerted to.  Because those are the ones you heal while they energetically harm you.

On the plus side, empaths can “connect” on a level many can’t.  Empaths can also read a room or gather impressions of people and situations in mere seconds.  AND… we’re almost always right about what we’ve perceived.  Reason being, we read the energy of the person or room versus the words or appearance of it.

So yes, it’s a blessing in many ways.  Too, I know I was given it for a reason so I do try hard not to beat it up too much.  Plus, it’s kept me safe in situations where if I didn’t have it really bad things would likely have happened.

All in all though, if you’re an empath you know exactly what I mean.  It’s such a blessing while also being such a curse.

It’s definitely something you have to learn how to work your entire life around.  It’s never in the “off” position either.  You can learn to mute it some.  You can learn ways to protect your energy.  Still, it is never not perceiving.  It’s also never not using your energy to do so.

We empaths are the healers, helpers, listeners, and true feelers amongst us.  Just realize, it’s a huge responsibility if you are one.  AND… you must tend to yourself if you’re to have any hope of living a happy, productive, and long life.   Just is.

Gift or curse?  Mixed bag I’d say.


By Thomas for


It’s true that loneliness affects some more than others. However, to traditional medicine, it is not always clear why some are more susceptible than others.

Whatever the case, it is clear that some people desire romantic relationships yet continue to stay single. It could be that some of them are empaths who have the tendency to feel overwhelmed and fatigued in their close relationships to others.

Empathetic people are a unique subset of humans. Those who can easily intuit and even take on the energetic themes of others can very easily become overloaded and exhausted when encountering the intimacy of a close relationship.

EmpathsThey can feel taken over when not given the personal time to decompress, which is why they may both want close relationships while at the same time fear for their own safety.

Obviously, traditional coupling will not work for many empaths who feel this way. In order to succeed in love, empathetic people must assert their need for personal space much more than is common.

While with a mate it is not as extreme as the necessary physical space in public situations or with strangers, there may be times when the partner is confused by the feeling that intimacy is desired but the need for space must be granted.

The point is that intimacy can flourish for people who find themselves coupled in close relationships with empaths. The key is communication, particularly on the subject of personal comfort levels.

If you are an empath, here are some tips for you if you experience the issues outlined above.

Talk To Your Potential Partner

The right person will understand if you tell them that you are sensitive and need personal quiet time. If you are put down or otherwise disrespected, move on. If not, continue down this list.

How Do You Like To Sleep?

EmpathsMany empaths never become accustomed to sleeping the in the same bed as their partner. It’s not personal, but rather derived of necessity.

Tell your mate if you prefer to sleep alone, it is important that they know you need to sleep by yourself in order to get the all-important full night’s rest.

If your partner is considerate to you, though, be considerate to them if they get lonely sometimes and want you by their side. Strong relationships compromise.

Negotiate Your Physical Space Needs

EmpathsCohabitation can be a deal-breaker for many relationships, but for the empath this is even more pronounced.

Be clear with yourself and your partner about your required needs for breathing room.

You may find that it is absolutely vital to have your own studio, office, or even your own bedroom. This is often true when traveling together as well.

Take Personal Mini-Vacations

Empathetic people need private down time to prevent emotional overload, even if it’s for a period of minutes. That walk around the block or personal daycation can mean the difference between long-term love and broken hearts.

6 Clear Signs That You’re An Old Soul


Old Soul

There are many people in our lives who are old souls, you may even be one of them. They are wise beyond what their physical appearance or actual age let on and their innate knowledge has given them a very developed understanding of the world. They are often quieter, preferring to observe and learn from a distance, while internalizing the lessons and all of the experiences they go through in life.

Old souls radiate a certain frequency that is peaceful and stable, they are naturally calming to be around. Many believe that they have acquired their wisdom from the past lives they’ve led and that through this they’ve been gifted with an enlightened view of the complex world we live in.

As it follows, old souls both experience and see things differently and this sets them apart from what everyone else goes through. In turn, they also do things differently and here are some of the ways in which this shows:

1. Old souls travel their own path through life:
They are not followers in any sense of the word and never do what may be expected of them. The typical goals and materialistic inclinations of life are of no interest to them. Instead of success and power, they are after self-realizations and happiness. That’s why they’re often more connected, spiritual, and grounded.

2. Old souls have only a few true lifelong friends:
They often have difficulty connecting with people around their age because they aren’t interested in many of the things those people do or talk about. Rather, they gravitate towards a select few friends who are able to truly understand them and their intense nature. They don’t waste their time getting to know people that they just cannot relate to and it can be said that old souls look for friends whom they see as kindred souls.

3. Old souls have an unquenchable thirst for learning:
Their passion for all things intellectual and informative is clear from the get-go. They love critical thinking and any experiences they go through they will examine in depth to extract important life lessons from them. For an old soul, knowledge brings happiness and power. Having their thoughts challenged is what they live for.

4. Old souls adjust to new situations and surroundings with ease:
They don’t like to stand out or make a scene and prefer to hang back and observe. While they aren’t anti-social per se, they do view themselves as a sort of misunderstood social outcast. Their natural curiosity leads them to ask many questions and from this deeper conversations follow. However, if talk turns idle or superficial, they immediately lose interest. If they’re unable to steer it back to more meaningful topics, they will simply end it abruptly and move on.

5. Old souls look beyond the mundane and see the bigger picture:
They filter out the basic everyday details that tend to cloud the thoughts and minds of everyone else. Their vision is clear and uncompromised by material things or selfish vanity, which they see as senseless and unproductive. Instead of being focused on the here and now, they look right past it, way down the line into the future. Thinking far ahead about all of the possibilities, or the consequences of ones actions, is what gives them a wider perspective and understanding of the world beyond the present.

6. Old souls are spiritual:
This doesn’t mean they are religious devotees, or even a part of any organized religion. Instead, they are more in tune with a variety of ancient rituals and traditions which by practicing brings them happiness. Old souls are always seeking enlightenment through knowledge, and spirituality both encompasses and fulfills a major part of this.
