I'm hearing more and more people say that someone else told them that they are a walk-in. I hesitate when I hear this because I feel that our internal guidance should be our main source of information. For too long we have looked to other people to tell us our truth.
I believe that our guides will organically lead us to a source of information to teach or confirm what they are trying to convey to us. Info that someone else gives me is rarely a "new" knowing--it is usually something that I was already pondering or contemplating.
If we have to question the validity of what someone else told us (especially if it comes from out of the blue), it could be an indication that we are trying to convince ourselves that something is true when it just doesn't feel right. It can cause us to not trust our own intuition.
When trying to decide if something is true for you, do a body scan. Where in your body do you feel energy when considering the information? Is it pleasant or uncomfortable? Truth should feel good or neutral.
How much do you trust information that you get from others? How quick are you to accept something as truth when nothing in you or your experience supports it?
