5 Tips For Following the Internal Call for LightHelp The Universe Lead You Where You Need To Go With These Tips From Kyle Gray

Right now, more than ever, there’s a great call from the universe for light. It’s a call that we can all feel in some way or another. It’s that feeling inside that says, there’s got to be a better way, and that need for us to become the most positive and loving person we’ve ever been.
I believe a soul that hears the call is a light worker. It’s a person who has begun to recognise all of these feelings and become open to what can only be defined as guidance. A light warrior is a person who decides they’re going to do something about these feelings and ultimately acts upon them.
It takes a great deal of courage to be the best person you’ve ever been. It also takes a huge deal of courage to begin changing the way you’ve always thought and lived. That’s why you’re a warrior – because it’s about recognising the strength you have, and the strength you were born to share with the world.
Often, we hear this call and feel these feelings but, ultimately, many of us find ourselves stumped about what to do next. We get this intuition that our angels and guides are sending us signs and signals, but we often don’t know what the message is or, even more so, how to respond.
When I first started to develop my spiritual practice and connect with the angels, I decided I was going to do this in a way that felt authentic and real for me. I developed my relationship with the universe (God/Divine) and my guides (angels) like I would a friendship. I would (and still do) speak and communicate with them all the time, sharing how I felt and what was going on for me as if I was telling a best friend all the latest that had been happening in life.
I found the more I shared and the more I communicated directly to whom I felt was doing the guiding and talking to me, the more I would experience intuitive hits on what to do next and where to go next. It was as if my path was being taken care of for me.
If you keep receiving signs or feel like you’re receiving a message from heaven, but ultimately don’t know what it is – there is a fundamental message that’s coming to all light bearers at this time:
‘YOU ARE NOT ALONE.’
When we receive signs, feathers, numbers and messages, it’s the angels and universe telling us that we’re not alone and shouldn’t need to feel like we’re alone. Therefore, it’s not our job or role to figure out the whole plan – we just need to acknowledge that we’ve heard the call and that we’re willing to fulfil the mission.
The universe can’t lead us to where we need to be next unless we give it permission. When we acknowledge the message first, and then say we’re ready to be led – angels of golden energy fly before us and light up the way.
Here are my essential tips for following the internal call to make a healing difference:
1. Acknowledge the signs and messages you feel you’re receiving.
Many people spend time and energy wondering if a sign is real or just a coincidence. Often this is because you don’t feel worthy of a divine connection and so ask yourself: ‘What makes me so special?’ The truth is it’s because you have a kind heart and are willing to make a difference. There are no coincidences in life – there are only ‘God-incidences’. Even if a sign doesn’t make sense, just let your angel crew know it has been received.
Say something like: ‘Hey, angels and universe – thank you for the signs and messages today. I have received them loud and clear! Today, I am remembering I AM not alone!’
2. Don’t worry about plans – let spirit be your GPS.
Once you’ve heard a call or feel like you’re being asked to make a difference, the ego likes to get loud and can try to divert you from your soul-based mission. When you begin to get worried about plans and working out how you’re going to make it all happen – ultimately the ego is running the show. I have found that when you decide to step back and let the divine lead, you’re allowing everything to unfold exactly as it needs to. Here’s my ‘Warrior Heart Prayer’ to help you:
I am ready to know you like never before.
Like a spark of like within my heart.
I give you permission to lead the way.
3. Realise that what you do for you is what you offer to the world.
When you begin to make steps towards fulfilling the call for light – to be the best you can be and essentially overcome your own challenges – an egoistic curveball often follows. This curveball is the feeling of ‘not doing enough’, and it’s a voice of comparison. A part of you may think you need to do more, but realise the universe isn’t working against the clock – it has no urgency and is trusting of you. Realise that as you work through your own fears – you’re removing fears and darkness from the world.
4. Ask to be of service in a way that serves you!
The universe and angels respond to our prayers literally. That means if you ask for something – in some form or another – usually you’ll get it (especially if you know it’s possible). The biggest mistake light workers have made in the past has been asking to be ‘used’, and many find themselves in positions where they feel overworked, unappreciated and drained. The path of a light warrior is about honouring the self in order to honour and serve the world – so I have found asking to be of service in a way that serves joy, contentment and happiness to be the way forwards. I’ve also instructed some people to consider including serving their bank balance in this prayer too – we were not born to suffer!
Thank you, universe and angels, for showing me how I can be of service to the healing of the world in a way that serves me, my joy, my contentment and my happiness. I am ready to walk the path of light and abundance.
5. If you need more clarity – ask for it!
When you follow the path of light, you’re not supposed to be in the dark. If you feel like something doesn’t make sense, or there seems to be a lesson or challenge that you can’t quite figure out, ask for clarity. Your angel team are your friends, your cheerleaders and your supporters – if something feels strange, ask them to shed their light on it and they absolutely will.
You were not just born for purpose – you were born ON purpose. When you feel the light calling you, know that you have been recruited because you have gifts that can help heal the world. Let your light lead you towards a life of fulfilment.
