The script of the workshop on divine guidance is available on my products page (as free pdf): https://karinfinger.wordpress.com/products/
With many stories, I explain the different input channels of guidance (like dreams, inner voice, visions, songs in the head, signs, synchronicities, patterns of event, etc.) and how we can learn to interpret them. I also discuss some general topics like what is helpful for getting guidance, what can block it, and that guidance is all about getting into alignment with the higher self.
After much resistance and many pushes by the universe, I gave in and held a pilot version of the divine guidance workshop.
It was the ‘lite version’ of it. Just half a day with only six friends in my living room. No hassle with having to book a venue, no marketing, no traveling.
This event was not only heavily enforced by nudges and pushes of the universe, but many details of it were also guided.
A dream about the target group
When I wrote the script for the workshop, I was not sure who should be the target group. Materialists? Lightworkers? Buddhists? Christians?
When I asked, I got the answer “We will send you a dream”. And then I dreamt about one of the participants and interpreted that as the prototype of a member of the target group.
Dreams about the chapter on the basics
I wondered whether I should include a chapter on the basics of the spiritual journey in order to let people know that guidance will shift their identity and will also result in a loss of free will.
But wouldn’t this information deter many readers who might just want to know how to find the right romantic partner or how to make more money?
Then I had two dreams which both indicated that it would be silly to cut away the foundation and therefore decided to include the chapter on basics.
Advice on the date
In November 2016, I was finally ready to stop procrastinating and set a deadline – just so that I could get that task off my chest.
But when should the pilot version of the workshop take place?
I asked the inner voice and heard “End of March 2017”.
So, I set the date to March 31, and everyone of the participants had time on that day.
Help with single chapters
When I wrote the chapter on synchronicity, I needed a good example as a story to include.
But I was at a loss. I did not want to just quote the old story of Carl Jung and the scarab beetle, but rather tell my own story.
As if to answer this request, a bird flew against my window. It was a special bird – a canary. And it had a special connection to our family on that day. You can read more about it in the chapter on synchronicities in the script.
An email which should not be sent
After a draft of the script was ready, I sent it to a friend. He wrote a lot of detailed feedback into the comments.
When I attempted to answer all his remarks in a lengthy document, my computer program just did not save my answers. About two hours of work were lost.
I took that as a sign that this answer was not to be sent – for whatever reason.
Advice on whom to invite
Three weeks before the workshop, the inner voice told me, “Can we talk? I don’t want you to ruin this. You need to invite F., too.”
I said, “Yes, I can do that, but F. usually works on Fridays and he will probably not be able join.”
The inner voice replied, “He will come. I promise.”
So, I invited F., and indeed, he participated. And it turned out that his presence was a blessing in several ways.
During the last two years, I have learned over and over again in how many ways an endeavor is guided if my higher self wants to make it happen by all means. At first, there are gentle nudges and not so gentle pushes. After the realization that resistance is futile, there is surrender. And in the end the whole universe conspires to support it.
I am very grateful to the six participants of the pilot version of the workshop who took the time to test this and who gave me valuable feedback and to all fellow bloggers here on WordPress who have shared how guidance shows up for them, who have encouraged me, and who have offered help in many different ways. Thanks a lot to all of you!
