Easy Listening - Supermarket Shopping with your Guides

Do you know how to get spiritual help with the groceries and your diet and environment at the same time? It's shopping with Spirit.

Go to to the supermarket when you have plenty of time; make sure you've had something to eat and some water too. And you have been to the bathroom if you need it.
So your body is comfortable, satisfied and nothing is pressing on you or rushing you in any way. Take paper and a pen, you will need to make the odd note.
Building a communication bridge is most important and it's my opinion the supermarket is without a doubt one of the best places to do it. Yes/No answers and lots of them surround you from the entry to the exit.

Once you are in the Supermarket – take a moment to breathe deeply in through your nose and out through your mouth and just connect with the surroundings. Ask in your mind “What do I need here today – what is best for me/my family?” and let yourself wander through, not thinking about what you have at home, but allowing yourself instead to be attracted to items. Wander, it’s the key.

You will know about some things you need to purchase anyway, but as much as possible follow what you are attracted to. Take a good look at each item your eyes fall on, be open to discovering why, choose whether or not you take it home but make sure to note it down if you decide not to for later checking.
A few years ago while I was shopping I was walking along saying to myself " I need bread, bread, bread, I need bread' and over the top of my voice came "and butter" and thats when I realised I didn't need a list. And I had help. How many times have you come home, discovered you were out of something and it had popped up and said hello to you, or popped into your head while shopping? Lightbulbs, toilet paper, tampons and rubbish bags are the real kickers.

Take note of all mental pictures that pop in, don’t doubt, just consider each picture.
Ask “what else do I need?” You may be surprised at some of the answers.
Your body knows what it needs. It will endeavour to self-medicate through food if you ‘get out of the way.’ Your subconscious knows and will ‘show’ you what to take home of the essential items such as cleaners or rubbish bags, or while passing rubbish bags you may for instance suddenly remember you were interested in the possibility of getting a worm farm. Note this sort of thing down too.

For example - You may be being encouraged to switch to bio or green type cleaners and although you have regular favourites, just have a think about if anyone has asthma, any kind of recurring illness, breathing difficulties, major stress or allergies in the house. Know that cleaning your house from top to bottom with poison won’t be helping and while bio or 'green' cleaners sometimes seem dearer, you will save a great deal of money on healthcare and a great deal of discomfort to family. The more sensitive you are the more you will discover benefits,  as your home will feel even more harmonious and you will be responsible for helping the environment, not just of your family, but of everyone.

You may find yourself at home with a range of new products to discover and pack away – you may find you have bought less than you intended to as you realise you weren't called to buy some of the usual items. And you may discover that you didn’t listen! Some items your eyes fell on you said to yourself “no – I’m SURE we have that at home.” How inconvenient.
After a time you will learn to shop, unhurried and hear your body/guides or guidance letting you know what is really good for you.

Wandering in the supermarket while you listen to your body takes the pressure and the unpleasantness out of grocery shopping. You can go into a walking meditation as you do it and you could even think up a mantra for health and wellbeing for your trolley.

You could even discover how to use your body as a pendulum.

Don’t forget to do your research later. See how you go. I’m looking forward to hearing about the outcome. Shall we call it ‘feed back?’ and don't forget to show appreciation to your helpers.
