How To Know If Guidance Is Real

Other Dangers






1. Guidance, for the purpose of this article, is receiving information by mental telepathy.  The information may or may not be true, and often it is a mixture of truth and falsehood.

              2. Receiver. A person who receives information in this way is a receiver.  Some use the word channel to describe such a person, but receiver is a better word.  Other words used to describe people who receive guidance consciously are seer or wise person.

              3. Unconscious receiver.  This is a person who receives information, but is not aware of it.  He or she usually has a strong ego and just thinks that he or she is smart or  even brilliant, or has good intuition that provides good information.

This is by far the most common type of receiver.  Most people, at one time or another, have had this experience.  They just seem to know something, and don’t know how it occurred.  It occurred through guidance, but they are not aware enough to realize this.

              4. Conscious receiver.  This is a person who knows he or she is receiving messages.  It is much less common.

Two types are the trance receiver and the fully awake receiver.

5. Trance receiver.  This is a person who goes into an altered state of consciousness when he or she receives information.  The main soul steps aside and allows another soul to speak through or to write through.

In this case, the receiver has little to do with the information that comes through.  It may be true or false information, but the receiver has little to do with it.  Some call this trance channeling, but trance receiving is more accurate.

A well-known example of this type of receiving was the work of the late Mr. Edgar Cayce of Virginia Beach Virginia, USA.  Mr. Cayce would “go to sleep” and another soul would speak through him.  After the receiving or channeling, he would return to normal waking consciousness, but did not recall what he had said.  Someone else had to inform him as to what he had said.

Native healers and shamans use trance states often to receive guidance.  Some use rather dangerous methods to induce the trance.  They include using psychotropic drugs such as LSD or “magic” mushrooms, heavy breathing, drumming, high intensity sound or deprivations to induce the trance.  All of these are poisons for the body.  Please do not do this, as death occurs, at times, with these methods.

            6. Fully awake receiver.  This person does not need to “go to sleep” to receive information consciously.  Instead, he or she just relaxes and either “hears” a voice or words, or uses some other method such as muscle testing or twitching of a body part such as an ear.  By this method, he or she “tunes in” and hears or perceives the transmitted information.

            This method takes more training and usually requires a more developed soul.  Some readers have asked us about it, and we recommend a complete development program to slowly unblock certain brain centers, and slowly heal the body and brain so this can be done reliably and safely.  However, it is always a difficult method.

7. Prophet.  This is a Biblical term, mostly, derived from an ancient Hebrew word, nabi.  The word is composed of two feminine letter N and B, because receiving is a feminine activity.  To understand Hebrew letters, please read An Ancient Hebrew Language on this site.

The word nabi literally means a fountain or a bringing forth.  It also means someone who directly receives teaching from God. 

A prophet is not the same as a teacher, pastor, preacher or rabbi.  The latter group of people are not receivers, as much as they are disseminators of information that they have read or otherwise learned.

The Hebrew Bible identifies about 16 prophets, including two women, Anna and Deborah.  Of course, in those days, women usually did not assume roles such as prophetess because they were restricted by religious tradition.




            Guidance is controversial because some people automatically associate it with New Age religion and psychics, mediums, and “channeling entities”.  Others think it is the same as witchcraft and sorcery, but it is not.  It is simply a human ability.

In fact, we all receive guidance from friendly souls.  People give it different names, such as intuition, insights, flashes, revelations, hunches and so on.  So please read this article with an open mind.






              We cannot emphasize this point enough.  Too many people go to their death by listening to bad guidance.  It occurs in the most advanced or developed people, as well as millions of less developed ones.

            Guidance is often made sexy and appealing, and many people are easy to persuade.  Those who give the guidance are up to no good and love to confuse, confound and even destroy good people.

There are plenty of false prophets, rogues, devils, and discarnate entities that provide guidance to millions of people.  They often mix some truth with falsehood, in order to confuse people.  They are dangerous and often subtle.

Here are suggestions to help evaluate the veracity of guidance:

1. Ask: Is this the absolute truth, in the light of Christ alone?

You must receive a yes answer.  If you get any other answer beside yes, do not listen to the guidance as it is likely totally false and possibly very harmful.  If you do not receive an answer, that is the same as a NO answer.

2. Pay more attention to your physical and emotional health.  This may seem unusual.  However, our brains are physical and biochemical organs, first of all.  For them to function properly, the body and the brain must be well nourished, well-rested, well-hydrated, and well-oxygenated.  Having enough of minerals such as zinc, selenium, chromium, iodine, magnesium and others are absolutely essential for proper brain activity.

Paying attention to one’s diet, drinking water, getting plenty of sleep and other aspects of physical and mental health are most important.  Ideally, follow a complete development program.

Include the daily use of a near infrared sauna for a few years, daily coffee enemas and the Pushing Down mental exercise, as these will help clear the mind and the emotions so that you can think clearly.

Also, any yin substance such as fruit, sugar, smoothies, avocado, chemicals of any kind, and even too much watery energy around you can ruin your guidance because of its yin nature.

3. Be especially vigilant to avoid all alcohol or drugs. These are well known to open people to very negative guidance from discarnate entities who seek to cause mischief or just to use people “to see what will happen”.

This is real and very dangerous.  It is one reason people do crazy things when drunk or ‘high’, and it is one of the main reasons to avoid drugs and alcohol, in addition to the damage they cause to your brain and other body organs.
            Marijuana is one of the drugs that can open a person to negativity and harmful guidance.  Also, habitual use of prescription and over-the-counter medications such as sleeping pills, amphetamines, Ritalin, Adderal and many others can also open one up to negative entities and negative guidance.

4. Use your logical, conscious mind to check guidance any way that you can. Do not just settle for hunches and intuitions, if possible.  If you seem to receive guidance to avoid something, check it carefully using logical methods, where possible, to check it.
            Also, you might discuss the guidance with someone who is open-minded, but very grounded and logical.  Ask if there are ways it could be checked.

This is not the same as trying to “debunk” or find fault with the information.  It is simply that some types of information can be checked logically.  For example, if someone tells you that a person cheated you on a purchase, go to your records and find out if it is true.  That is all this entails.

5. Ask that the information be repeated to you. Ask again and check guidance many times to make sure.  Be sure you are not distracted, tired, hungry or otherwise out of sorts when information presents itself.  Asking for repetition many times can help prevent this problem.  And each time ask if it is the absolute truth, all in the light of Christ alone, as explained above.

6. Ask for the source of the guidance.  Always do this!  If it is not from God or Christ, reject it immediately and do not try again for a while.  And make sure that the next time you ask for guidance, you are well-rested, well-hydrated, well-fed and relaxed.  

7. If the information seems safe, and passes the tests above, you may try following the advice carefully and gently and see what happens.  Perhaps first ask yourself what is the worst that could happen if the advice is wrong, and decide if you can live with it.

In other words, do not do anything or try anything that could harm you or another person.  Do not spend a lot of money, either.  If you are satisfied that these conditions have been met, then gently act on the knowledge and wait and see what comes of it.

For example, if one dreams that one must speak to a friend about her marriage, for example, it is not too far fetched to just imagine that maybe there is a problem that the friend would like to talk about.

Bringing it up might alienate the friend, however, so this possibility should be mentioned to the friend.  If you feel comfortable enough, just tell your friend you had a dream and thought you should mention it to her.

On the other hand, if one has a dream or is told to bet all of one’s money on a particular lottery ticket, this is much less logical.  Be very careful about doing anything about it, since it could just be a desire on the part of your unconscious, or it could be a mischievous entity.

I suppose one could test it by betting one dollar or even less, and see what happens.  However, true guidance should be logical and sensible.  If it is not, then scrutinize it carefully and be prepared to dismiss it.  To help you evaluate guidance, read How To Evaluate Advice To Make The Wisest Decisions.




You may not agree with this, but it is true.  If you ask, many people will admit that they get hunches, intuition, insights, flashes, dream messages, or “gut feelings”.

We are all guided.  Call it the Holy Spirit, if you like, but it is guidance.  For an example of one kind of guidance, read Controller Creatures and Other Guides.




A sick brain does not receive messages very well.  It is like a radio receiver with a weak battery, a bad antenna, or damaged transistors.  That is how most people’s brain is today.

Nutrition is the single most important need of most people.  Improving the brain’s receiving ability, or ability to tune in, is a major reason that we emphasize eating an excellent diet rich in well-cooked vegetables.  Just taking nutritional supplements or drinking powders will not work as well.

A sick brain also does not process information well.  As a result, many who receive guidance become fearful.  Others become arrogant when they receive guidance.  Others become too emotional when they receive guidance.  This can cause depression, anxiety and other problems.

Christians are better, in this regard, because they have heard of the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost, and tend to be less afraid of receiving messages from unseen sources.  However, they still are fearful, and often shun anyone who says he receives messages, fearing they are from the devil or Satan.  This does occur, so their fears are somewhat justified, but it is certainly not true all of the time.

A sick brain also has an impaired memory.  As a result, many people do not recall a message clearly, and it may become corrupted and altered.  This is dangerous, as the meaning and intent of a message can easily be reversed by a bad memory.

Sick brains also have infections, toxic metals, toxic chemicals, yeast and other problems.  Often, the person has improper attitudes and the brain itself is yin.  All this gets in the way of guidance.

So if you want to receive guidance and be able to evaluate it and use it wisely, heal the brain first with a development program, and not with just herbs, vitamins and other pills.  Also, strictly avoid marijuana, alcohol and other drugs and intoxicants.

On a hair mineral test, a wonderful newer indicator of healing of the brain is the presence of anchors and pivot patterns.  For details, read Pivots And Anchors.




Some people believe that one should not discuss guidance because it is not Biblical.  We respectfully disagree.  Both the Old and the New Testament discuss the subject in some depth.  Here are just a few examples:

1. “Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you.  But if I go, I will send him to you.” -John 16:7-8

2. “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” –John 14:26

3. “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.  And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him.  You know Him, for he dwells with you and will be in you.” –John 14:15-17

4. And we are witnesses to these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.” –Acts 5:32

5. Daniel ate special food, while other Old Testament prophets went off alone and prayed for hours to clear the mind.

There are many other references to guidance, and there are many stories about the prophets, who are nothing more than good receivers of messages, and who are willing to share them.




Souls are the basic units of consciousness, and all beings contain souls.  This principle is controversial because some people will say, “No, I get guidance directly from God.”  We can debate this issue.  However, our understanding is that God includes all souls, so saying that guidance comes from souls is not a denial of guidance from God.

The souls, in turn, may receive messages from other souls who are more advanced than they are.  However, souls can also receive false messages.

Some people do not believe in souls.  The main reason for this is we cannot see them, because they are very small.  However, souls are discussed in the Bible and other holy books around the world.

In these and other books, souls are acknowledged to be the rulers of the bodies, and the primary units of consciousness.  We won’t discuss souls more in this article because the topic is discussed in detail in a number of articles on this website about souls, such as Soul Science and Soul Upgrades.




Let us examine each method in more detail.

Wires.  Every body has a silver cord.  It is the subject of a separate article on this site entitled The Silver Cord.  Some people can see it.

It functions as a Wave Guide.  This is the same idea as the coaxial cable used to bring television programs into people’s homes from the cable company, or from satellite dishes.  Wave guides can carry a tremendous amount of information.

In addition to the silver cord, our bodies may have other tiny wires that are much too small to be seen that transmit information between parts of the body and/or between bodies.

Wireless. A section in the textbook, Nutritional Balancing And Hair Mineral Analysis, 2010, 2014, and 2016 editions, discusses the idea that the brain is a tuning device, exactly like a radio receiver.  As a result, it is not surprising that we can receive guidance by wireless or radio.

Implants.  Brain implants are real, although some do not want you to know about them. In some nations today, you can buy an implant to keep track of your dog or even to help locate your child.  It is a tiny radio receiver or transmitter that is inserted below the skin.

Most implants, however, are not good.  For more on this subject, please read Implants on this website.






Important blocks to guidance include:


1. Disbelief in guidance.  Many people have been taught that guidance is nonsense.  This is part of the “liberal” mentality that cannot believe in spiritual or unseen goodness in the world. 

It is also often part of what I call the anti-Biblical mentality.  The Bible teaches that there are angels, prophets, and Holy Spirit, and these are all around us.  However, even reading the Bible is banned in American public schools.  As a result, many younger people, especially, are unfamiliar with it.

2. Keeping one’s life too “full” of worldly or outer life. Millions of people have such busy lives that there is little time or energy devoted to quiet reflection and to listening to “the still small voice within”, as some call it.
            To really receive and act upon guidance, one needs to become as “empty” inside as possible, in order to leave space and time for guidance to be received.  This means having an attitude that one does not have the answers oneself, and that by keeping a kind of empty space within oneself that “in one’s helplessness, help will come”.
            Try saying to yourself, “Empty of self, empty of striving, I am open to guidance”. One must then keep that open, unknowing, helpless or empty space inside of oneself.  Do not run out and fill it up with mental and physical activities.

For some people, taking a very slow, gentle walk and emptying the mind the whole time by moving everything down and out the feet, will produce the emptiness one seeks.  Then creative and important thoughts may easily come into the mind.  They may just be thoughts of things that need to be done, but there may be more.  Finally, always be very grateful for them.

3. Lack of gratitude for guidance. Being grateful for your guidance is a critical key to receiving it.  Always be grateful for any help you receive, from any source.  This is because the soul who sent it to you worked hard to bring it to you.

If you are grateful, he or she will send more, in most cases.  But if you are not grateful, or do not listen, or do not act upon it, at least to check it out, then the sending soul will often give up and work with someone else who appreciates the effort.  So be sure to always give thanks for your guidance.

4. Fear of guidance. Some are afraid of guidance.  They believe that God hates them, for example, or that they will learn that they are horrible, guilty people.  Others fear that they will be asked by God or the Holy Spirit or by the devil to do something awful, difficult or unpleasant.  Still others fear that an alien “devil” or demon will take over their mind if they ask for guidance.

These fears are real and must be dealt with.  Some ways to handle them are discussed in the sections below.

5. Hopelessness or victim thinking. Many people I meet have very negative attitudes about life.  They believe they have few or no options, and they do not believe in the availability of much help.

Some believe that life is just a game of chance, and that they are just victims of life, in general.

This is false, but victim thinking is what is taught in the public schools, often by the media, and even by some religious organizations.

The truth is that each of us is a sovereign, incredible, spiritual being who is here on earth for a little while to learn lessons and to bless and forgive others.  There is amazing help available to all.

6. Agitation.  One’s mind can be so agitated or distracted that guidance cannot come in very easily.  This happens often among those who are unhealthy, those living on stimulants, and those who have unhealthy lifestyles.

If this includes you, please change it.  It may take some courage, but there is help available and many articles on this website can help anyone correct an unhealthy lifestyle. 

7. Ill health.  This was discussed above, so I will not repeat it.  However, it is the major block in many people today.

8. A stubborn ego.  A big or stubborn ego always gets in the way of guidance.  You must be humbled by guidance.  If you are not, you won’t heed it and you may take credit for it yourself, which is also not helpful.  Watch your ego if you want to receive excellent guidance.

9. Laziness. Many people receive wonderful guidance.  However, they are lazy, so they don’t listen well, and they don’t check it or act upon it.  This will also cause the guidance to stop, in all cases.

If you want guidance, set aside 30-60 minutes each day to write down your thoughts, your hunches and maybe your dreams.  Perhaps keep a diary or notebook of this information so that in a relaxed moment you can refer to it and consider it carefully.

Laziness can have to do with poor health, lack of rest, unhappiness or other problems.  If so, attend to these so they don’t get in your way.

10. Conflicts. Guidance often will conflict with your belief system, in some way.  This stops many people from listening to the advice.

This is not easy to overcome.  A few suggestions are to ask several times to make sure the guidance is consistent.  Try to check the guidance by other means.  Also, by reading this website, you will be exposed to new ideas that may help you to better understand what appears to be unusual or odd guidance.

For example, you may be told that the friends you like are not best for you.  This will come as a shock in almost all cases.  It is hard to see beyond your little world, but it is necessary to move some people along.  So consider the guidance, ask for more details, ask for names, addresses, phone numbers or any other details that would help you evaluate the situation.

Another common type of conflict occurs in very religious people.  They may receive guidance that they need something that is forbidden by their religion, for example.  This is difficult, but listen carefully.  Most earth religions are older and every detail is not correct for modern times.

We have this problem with nutritional balancing all the time.  Something conflicts with one’s religion, and it stops some people from getting well.  Just because near infrared lamp saunas are not in the Bible does not make them bad or even suspect.  They are just from a newer time period.

Finally, some people will receive guidance to join a religion when they do not believe in it.  This is also difficult.  However, as some know who read this website, religions have something to offer and are not to be automatically shunned.

11. Inability, at times, to suspend judgments about oneself, about others, or about situations. This is similar to the problem above.  To receive valid guidance, one may need to avoid judging one’s own or someone else’s words or actions.  Otherwise, one may just discredit the guidance.

The peculiar quality of being able to suspend judgment in order to discern the truth is a quality worth cultivating.  It is a mark of a more advanced soul or person.  So work on it.  Do not judge.  Rather, discern in the Light of Christ.  There is a difference.




Some methods of receiving and checking guidance are much less reliable, and best avoided.  These include visiting psychics, or using pendulums or Ouija boards.  These methods are more easily be influenced by negative beings, so beware.




Real guidance from advanced souls is wonderful.  Guidance from false prophets through implants, perhaps, is not good at all.  Here are some tricks that might help you tell the difference.

1. Ask for the source.  We mentioned this, but it cannot be overemphasized.

2. Ask for the advice to be repeated exactly.  Some bad sources just issue random advice and don’t remember an hour later what they said.  If you recall, you might notice a difference.

3. Always use your best judgment.  Do not take any advice at face value.




We have discussed most of these.  Guidance can be wrong, harmful, destructive and self-destructive.  Getting false guidance can waste years of your life.  Becoming involved with false prophets, which include many teachers, gurus, religious and spiritual leaders today, is dangerous, costly and can take your life.

The list of mistakes that can be made is endless, from going on vegetarian and raw food diets or marrying the wrong person, to going into the wrong career, moving to a wrong location, or giving away all your money.  So please be very careful!

Always use common sense, and if possible, consult other people who you believe are very practical, grounded and centered.  Another idea is to ask someone who loves you very much and would never permit any harm to come to you.

This latter idea is tricky, of course, because guidance may tell you to ignore those very people, such as your parents or close relatives.  Sometimes this is valid guidance.  Other times it is not.

Guidance can, indeed, by very confusing.  Keep asking in prayer every day, and always ask for only the truth and “Thy Will” , and I believe you will get the truth.
