Growing up as a member of the LDS (Mormon) faith, we were advised not to seek the guidance from mediums or any that claim to have the ability to speak on behalf of spirit, offering spiritual guidance or direction for one’s path.
I understand the dangers in doing this. People could potentially hang onto the words of theses mediums and focus solely on what guidance was given, ignoring their own heart and free will.
But wait, is that not what the members do anyway as we were told to only listen to the prophet and leaders? There were many times I ignored my unfulfilled heart in order to follow the leader’s guidance. I followed the guidance down a path I really had no true desire being apart of.
On the LDS Church website, there is an article titled:
Searching the Scriptures: What the Scriptures Say about Astrology, Divination, Spirit Mediums, Magic, Wizardry, and Necromancy
In the article it lists several scriptures, referencing the idea that God does not approve of any other person to speak His words, be it only the designated Prophet.
“It is clearly seen from the foregoing passages that belief in astrology, spirit mediums, etc., did not constitute the true religion taught by the prophets and patriarchs, but was characteristic of the false religions practiced by the surrounding nations that had departed from the Lord.”
“Thus, the message of the entire passage is that Israel should not look to the fortuneteller and astrologer for spiritual guidance, for the God of heaven will speak to his people through his own appointed servants, the prophets.”
Let’s not be afraid of the other perspective and let our heart guide us.
As I channel, I set aside my ego, who I am in this body and listen to the guidance from spirit answering questions such as:
What is my soul’s purpose?
How are my deceased loved ones?
What am I to learn from this experience?
How am I to improve my life?
These suggestions are on behalf of your unique and specific questions. No answer is the same as each person feels completely different.
I only work with the greater good and with information that will benefit. I ask my Spirit Guides to bring your Guides forward in this process. I then feel a sense of what direction or guidance is most in need.
All of this is for you to accept or disregard. It is always optional to take the guidance. So in summary,
Follow your heart, not the given direction
