A Little Inspiration from my Primary Guide to Overcome Mind Interference

I was scrolling through photos and older posts, looking for “reel material,” and I noticed a timely piece that I had put on FB in the very beginning of my journey as a spiritual guide, mentor, and healer. This was before I even knew that was what I was and am today (we’re always evolving). The fact that I came across this post, from over 9 years ago almost to the day, is beyond synchronous. I’ve been feeling little trinkets, sprinkles of “Which direction do I go now?” followed by somewhat frantic mind searching, otherwise known as mind interference. How easily we forget that the answers are always right there; we just need to be still enough to listen.

Timely Messages When Questions Creep In

I wanted to share this piece, a conversation with my primary guide, William, which was channeled all those years ago. At that time, I was feeling doubtful, overwhelmed, and skeptical of my over-arching purpose. In retrospect, I was actually massively expanding (these dichotomous patterns seem to go hand-in-hand, FYI). I’d just had a baby and had received multiple messages and nudges (more like shoves) that it was time to leave my full-time teaching and administrative position – as well as steady health insurance, a paycheck, and relative job security – to go facilitate others in establishing their intuitive gifts and assist them in connecting with their Higher Selves and passed loved ones. Needless to say, it was a pretty tumultuous and uncertain time.

This was his response to my questions: What am I doing here? Why do I feel so confused right now?

You must look within before you do any of your spiritual work, my child. Without looking within yourself, you’re unable to receive clear and definite answers to your questions.


The nervousness that you feel is your own fear, lack of trust and faith in the divine, and in your soul’s purpose through the eyes of your Source, your God. You have not looked within yourself today and so you feel fearful. This applies to everyone. They may not be able to hear my voice or the voice of their guide, but they are never alone. What I tell you every day should serve as a reminder that often what they see in front of them is not real. This might be disturbing to many, but for those of them who are in tune with their inner selves, they will understand the feelings and emotions and visions that come to them. Those are more real than anything that this earth could provide.


There is a sort of dependence on this earthly plane that has been developed over time, since birth. It takes a great deal of courage to go back and realize where you came from. Where you are today is only temporary. Each moment of every day that passes is only short-lived. So we must focus on the sun, a cool breeze, the birds chirping, and remember that there is nothing too challenging that your Source cannot help you through.”

Many with whom I work tell themselves they cannot channel, they cannot “hear.” This is not about “hearing” in the sense of our human capacity to discern sounds in a physical manner. This is inwardly hearing, feeling, seeing, sensing, and knowing that indescribable inner peace that IS the answer to all of our questions, doubts, or fears. This is about moving beyond the mind interference that creates the distraction. We were not taught this in school but it is, inherently, the most natural means of communication we all possess. We just need to slow down and tap in.

Tool and tip:

Write down your questions, and your fears. Take 20 minutes or so to be still, to focus on breathing, and to slow down the heart rate and the mind. When you feel your mind and body are calm, ask. You will feel the answers. Trust. When your mind tells you “I’m making this up,” dismiss this. That is the ego. When you feel peace and an innate sense of love, that is Source. Source will always share messages of love, hope, and inspiration. The ego has a different modus operandi. Discern. That discernment is key when we’re following the messages of our very Spirit.

What Next?

Right now, many of us are going through transitions, and so I am excited to announce that I am again offering intuitive guidance sessions out of my space in conjunction with these conscious collective shifts. I have spots open on Thursdays from October to December. Morning sessions are devoted to one-on-one remote or in-person guidance for one hour. Afternoon sessions are either a one-hour guidance session or 90 minutes of guidance plus Reiki for energetic alignment. In-person is preferred on the latter, though distance Reiki is an option if specifically requested.

Both are a “reboot” and “recalibrate” for mind, soul and heart. A great way to end 2023 and step into the new year if you’d like to quiet your own mind interference.
