Dear Joshua,

We have free will so by having spirit guides to guide us, does that violate our free will?


Dear Cindy,

In this reality, you are the sole creator. You have the absolute ability to have, be and do anything you like. You have birthed desires. Some of your desires, were created through the intentions you set prior to your birth. Other desires were birthed as you sifted and sorted through your experience of life. Since you are the creator of your reality and you can create anything you desire, your guides, supporters, inner self and Source itself are all conspiring to help you manifest those desires. This is an exploration of self. You can choose any way you like to explore who you are. You can explore the limited aspects of self as well as the authentic aspects of self. It is all up to you and there is no wrong way to conduct your exploration. Your guides are here to fully support any exploration you choose. They are aware of all of your desires, as well as the intentions you set prior to your birth.

In each moment, you have the ability to think any thought you like. Since your thoughts are attracted, the thoughts that come to you are based on the vibration you are emitting in the moment. When in alignment, you receive thoughts that resonate with who you really are. You are able to receive inspiring ideas that are provided to you by your guides. These ideas will allow you to move along a path designed to bring you everything you want. It does not matter what you want. Your guides are there to support your journey to become a vibrational match to any and all of your desires.

Some of your desires are perfectly aligned with who you really are and others are created based on your feelings of lack. Some resonate with the intentions you set prior to your birth and other desires are your attempt to fix a problem or fill a hole. If you are in alignment, and you are vibrating love and acceptance, then you will receive a thought from your guides that matches how you are feeling. You are attracting these ideas because you are in alignment with who you truly are and what you truly want. So your guides, who are always sending you inspired thoughts and ideas, are able to get their message through. When you receive the thought, you can accept it or reject it. That is up to you. That is where free will comes in. If you accept it, fine. If not, that too is fine since you are the one who must conduct the exploration.

When you are feeling bad and thinking thoughts that resonate with your perception of the limitations that appear to cause you to suffer, you are simply viewing yourself, your life, and the world around you from a limited perspective. In these times, you receive thoughts that we call urges that ask you to change the conditions. These thoughts do not come from your guides or your inner self. They are simply low-vibrational thoughts that appear whenever you feel bad. You also have a choice in these moments. You can accept or reject these thoughts as well. You can maintain your negative state of being, or you can do the work to regain alignment.

Notice that your guides will support any desire you have. They will help you achieve vibrational alignment with anything you choose. Therefore, it is up to you to choose those things, experiences, feelings, etc. that align with who you really are. You are a limitless and magnificent being of pure positive love and acceptance. When you allow for the intentions you set prior to your birth to flow effortlessly into your life, you need not do anything other than maintain your alignment, receive inspiration to act, push past fear, and act on that inspired idea. This will always lead to your highest good and to the manifestation of those feelings you intended to feel prior to your birth.

On the other hand, you have birthed desires that are not fully aligned with who you really are. These are your false desires. They are created out of fear and lack. You perceive there to be some issue in your life and so you think that when you fix the problem or fill the hole, you’ll feel better. You receive urges to change the conditions.

Your guides are not trying to stop you. They are patiently waiting for you to return to a state of alignment. They are never dissuading you from changing the conditions. They are always reminding you of what you truly want. However, they will not step in to prevent you from taking any action that is not in your best interests or for your highest good. That is what free will is all about.

With our love,
We are Joshua
