Spirit Guides: A Slightly Different Approach

Spirit Guides: a slightly different approach - Tara Nikita

We all have guides. I sort of prefer the term “soul guides”, as it brings back the recognition that on a soul level, we are already very intimately familiar with our guides, many of whom have worked with us over the course of many lives, and across many timelines and existences. I like the term “soul guides” too because the work our guides undertake with us has everything to do with our soul trajectory, and soul growth.

Our guides are interested in the accomplishment of the tasks and objectives that we set out for ourselves before coming here, before taking on a new human personality and integrating with our human host bodies. These tasks and objectives are the tasks and objectives of our souls.

As an intuitive practitioner, I encounter people who want to understand more about their spirit guides – what their names are, how they look. There is often, in spiritual communities, an insatiable curiosity about “guides”, and the first port of call on the spiritual quest of many folks in these communities is “meeting their guides.” Cue downloaded guided meditation, and voila, guides show up in all their glory.

Intuitive Readings: Frequently Asked Questions

Intuitive Readings - Frequently Asked Questions -Tara Nikita


Tara, are you the right intuitive reader for me?

My readings are really focused on therapeutic insight (insight and information that has therapeutic value), meaningful guidance, helping the person I work with get some perspective on their situation, and helping my clients come away with more clarity and a sense of being empowered to effectively approach their lives.

In my books, information and insight are distinct from each other. You can leave a reading with information, but fail to come away with insight. Insight is designed to offer you deeper, and new perspectives of what is happening in your life. Therapeutic insight takes insight a little further: it takes insight from something that is just intellectual, and turns into an embodied experience. Meaning, the insight gained helps you to release and heal on an emotional/energetic level, and helps you feel better.

I work best with people who need to: i) understand their situations more deeply, ii) shift their perspective iii) start the process of emotional healing iv) integrate spiritual and life lessons v) reveal and connect with their own internal wisdom and vi) participate purposefully and consciously with their own power to create the outcomes that they want.

If you are looking for someone to tell you what will happen and what you want to hear (as opposed to what you need to hear), then I am not the right match. Sessions with me often challenge your perspective, and they work best with people who would like to take more responsibility for their lives, thoughts and beliefs.

Let’s get real about the third eye

lets-get-real-about-the-third-eye-tara-nikita

It’s no secret that I love eye symbology. Eye symbology is tattooed on my back, as well as on my ankle. When I go out with my back exposed, it seems to always invite people to strike up a conversation. Am I a Christian. Is it the evil eye. Do I “believe in” Jesus. Am I trying to watch my back (how novel).

The truth about tattoos is that they are very often “notes to self.” They are symbolic reminders of hard-earned wisdom – wisdom we don’t ever want to forget. So we etch it into our skin. Fortified by the pain of our learning experience, the pain of getting a tattoo seems comparatively negligible. The beautiful and curious thing about tattoos is that as we evolve in consciousness, so does the meaning of our tattoos. I got my first eye tattooed on my back seven or eight years ago, and a lot has changed in my vista of reality since then.

If I dared to etch this sacred symbol on my back, then, looking back retrospectively, it seems that I was sending a message to the multiverse. In etching this symbol on my skin, I was in effect announcing my readiness to learn what it really meant. In some way I must have been stating that I wanted to qualify for wearing it.

So here is what I’ve learned thus far: the third eye isn’t for kids.

How To Use Social Media Consciously

how-to-use-social-media-consciously-tara-nikita

I’ll admit right from the outset that perhaps what follows is less of a “how to”, and more of me sharing my [somewhat fuddy duddy] perspectives on how I approach social media, in the hopes that maybe, just maybe, you might get something from it. What follows isn’t a judgment about how anyone else wants to use social media, but rather the guidelines and approaches that keep me sane in a world of tweets, retweets, updates, posts, latergrams, videos, scopes and likes.

Making Progress By Doing Nothing

making-progress-by-doing-nothing-tara-nikita

I love to write. I love to produce content. Love, love, love. As I sit down in front of my laptop, the words come. They flow. It’s like something or someone is pouring words into my being, and the words come through my fingertips. It’s this beautiful symbiosis of heart, mind, brain and hands.

But….

I’ve done nothing since July. I haven’t sat down to write a single post or article; I haven’t brought through the guides, I haven’t recorded a single podcast. And, guess what? It’s been one of the most strangely “productive” and fruitful periods I’ve had.

On parenting: how can awakening parents best parent their children?

From the guides:

This is a question that we know is of great personal interest to you. This is a very timely and important question. Parenting in this time on the planet is tricky…it is challenging for parents who would be oriented toward a certain kind of consciousness and who want to raise their children with let’s say, more “humanistic” values…values that are in-keeping with the harmony of the planet, with the raising of consciousness on the planet.

There is much to be desired in terms of the state of children and the state of parenting on your planet…there are many challenges which arise. One of which is your media, and the kinds of things that children are exposed to. One of which is the internet, and parenting in the age of the internet. We know you sense the challenges inherent in parenting on the planet at this time. The first thing we want to point out to you is this: that balance is needed in terms of how this issue is perceived.

The Law of Attraction Isn’t An Excuse To Feel Bad

The law of attraction isn't an excuse to feel bad - Tara Nikita

The law of attraction was never meant to be used an excuse to feel bad. It was never meant to be used a basis upon which to berate oneself for “manifesting” some unwanted thing. We were never meant to use ‘attracting’ unwanted things as a basis to extrapolate that we are flawed, or wrong.

The self- responsibility inherent in the maxim that we “create our own reality” was never meant to go hand in hand with self-blame when something unwanted happens. Responsibility and blame are not energetically equivalent.

Because of our limited understanding of this (albeit spectacularly simple) law, and because as humans we seem to be suckers for self-flagellation and feelings of unworthiness (we simply don’t have enough time here to discuss all the reasons why), we often tend to think in this way: “Because I have ‘attracted’ this unwanted thing into my life, I must be doing something wrong.” And then we intensify and amplify our experience of the unwanted things in our lives by:

The Spiritual Awakening Mentorship Session

Spiritual Awakening Blog

It is with a deep, heartfelt desire to really be of assistance to people going through the spiritual awakening process that I introduce my latest offering: the spiritual awakening mentorship session.  Creating genuinely useful resources for folks navigating the spiritual awakening process absolutely lights me up – because I had to navigate my spiritual awakening all on my own. I never really had anyone who I could turn to to explain what was going on.

It’s Not About What It’s About: Understanding Chaotic Planetary Events

Understanding chaotic global events - Tara Nikita

From the guides: 

Good afternoon.

It is actually evening, but we know you like the sound of us saying “good afternoon.” This is fine. We do not exist in your time, so we are not too bothered with what time it is. But as you sit to write this, it is in fact twilight. A nice summer evening in June.

Let us begin.

For some time we have wanted to talk about the idea that it is not about what it’s about. That the way things are received by you – the way events are painted, the way they are presented, the discourse around them…well, a lot of it is missing the point. And what is the point?

The point is that increasingly the events on your world are revealing to you that old paradigms, old perceptual paradigms, are crumbling. Your old paradigms cannot keep up with the bizarre nature of the events plaguing your world. The traumas, the things that seem outright farcical…the events that are “out there” need a new understanding applied to them.

Solstice Affirmation & Meditation

Summer Solstice Tara Nikita

I felt very moved to share a summer solstice affirmation and meditation. I invite you, if you feel resonant with these words, to say them aloud, or to perhaps take some time out of your day for private reflection. We are collectively in such volatile and tumultuous times. We are processing so much as a human collective. Sometimes I myself need to sit down and let the energy move through me in whatever way in needs to. In those moments I am acutely aware that I am serving as a “hub” for the flow and integration of energy – I am processing not just for myself, but also on behalf of the collective. This summer solstice affirmation and meditation is directed toward the planet, and the human collective.
