"In spiritual direction both the director and the directee receive some divine wisdom

 from their listening to God. The more loving the listening, the purer the wisdom. 

Then, when the interior disposition is ripe, 

the Spirit grants also to both of them some particular knowledge or insight."  

Nemeck and Coombs, The Way of Spiritual Direction, p.10
