Spirit Guide Communication
Contacting our Spirit Guides is one of the most readily available gifts to humanity. Yet few of us may remember how. There is no training required in learning how to contact your Spirit Guides rather a gentle and loving heart will draw in exactly the blessings you seek.
Here’s some of the best ways to be in communication with these beneficent forces:
1. Set the Mood
As with all ceremony, your physical environment should be prepped to support these subtle energies. Light a candle, dim the lights, clear your clutter and create a peaceful space. Bring into this setting any objects of power which hold significance – crystals, sacred objects and spiritual art. These will form your sacred space and amplify the intentions of your connection.
2. Clear Intention
All spiritual endeavors (heck, all endeavors!) should be carried out with clear intention. With whom do you wish to work? What questions are you hoping to address? With clear focus, we can call in the beings most suited to answer our queries.
3. Practice with Loving Patience on Yourself
We easily forget the ease of this gentle process! There is no need to feel rushed nor hurried. The messages will sweep over you as gently as the wind and it is only your ability to receive that will block your connection. As with breath, this communication with Spirit is our most primal and it cannot be done from the mind.
Set no expectations – this way of being is rarely like fireworks! Rather with patience and trust, you will find yourself in communion with the divine energy forces at work all around you.
4. Relax and Breathe
Breathe is among our most available treasures and the surest way to bring ourselves in to the present moment. With each breath, allow your awareness to deepen and become softer. No strain nor stress.
If you find yourself tense, take 3 more breathes, breath in love, breath in light.
To find yourself in the stillness of breath will open potent gateways to spirit. In the quiet center where the mental chatter ceases is where you will find the whispering of your Spirit Guide.
5. Call in Protection
As with all spiritual work, the dictates of your heart will call in like frequencies. A simple clearing will bless yourself and the space.
Envision yourself in a pillar of white light and let these energies wash away anything not of your highest good. Any energy not for my highest good leave now. When you are ready, relaxed and willing to allow the messages to come to you, ask that the most loving energy willing to assist you be called forth now.
6. Getting grounded and raising your vibration
The most profound of all sacred sounds is our own voice. Chanting is the process by which we make the sounds of the universe. Making these sounds raises our vibrations and attunes our energy to the most powerful forces of spirit.
Chant “Om” (Phonetically, this sounds like: AaaaUuuuMmmm) seven times to align your energy with that of the divine. You will quickly discover chanting to be a perfect portal to contacting your spirit guides.
8. Invite in your Spirit Guides and Angels
In the bliss of the abyss, call in your personal Guides and Angels. Share with them your intention and give them clear permission to join with you. We live in a free will universe where our command is the most respected and honored of all sacred laws. If you do not explicitly give permission, you may miss their encounters and simply enjoy the rest offered in this sacred space.
9. Open yourself to Subtle Frequencies
Their messages may come as visions, impressions, smells or thoughts. Pay attention to everything you experience for it is their direct way of being in communication with you now.
10. Ask for a Sign
This too is a flexing of our free will… and we are dense and doubting creatures. Ask for a sign in your day-to-day life that affirms your connection and the messages they offer. Please don’t see this as “telling them what to do,” rather it is a way of loving reassurance that will bolster your faith in them. This is a sure way they can express their presence and they are happy to oblige so long as you ask!
On many occasions this is for me the most magical of all forms of communication! When I was contemplating on a business decision, I asked for a sign to affirm my decision. After a week of what I thought were mixed signals, I was flipping thru the channels on the television and came across a show that my Mom loved (who recently passed) The lady on the show said “ What do you want, a yes or no answer, well the answer is NO. Talk about blatant communication!
11. Ask for a message or a blessing
Spirit Guides are in service to us and as such they can only help in the ways we explicitly ask. Beyond the validation of a sign, ask for a message or a blessing while you are in sacred connection with them. This could be guidance, insight or a sneak peek at what’s in store. The blessing could be a healing or an activation of your psychic skills. Please do not feel bad asking and instead see this as their devotion and love for you put to work!
12. Give thanks!
We all like to be appreciated and this small act from you will ensure you continue to incur their goodwill. Gratitude is our way of opening to more blessings when we can be humble and acknowledging of those that have already been granted. Also, writing a gratitude list when your are feeling down in the dumps is one of the most fastest ways to transmute your stagnant energy into a higher vibration.
**Expressing thanks aloud will give your ceremony extra credence as it shows them resolutely you know they are there and are willing to bring your voice and your will to the reality of their presence.
14. Living in the Sacred Everyday
Sacred space is best honored when we recognize it is a thriving part of our reality. To only visit once shows little regard for the relationships formed. Instead, know this place of loving support is available to you always and make use of it!
I tend to visit not just when I need help but anytime. Sharing your blessings with them and acknowledging their part goes far! They like to know their efforts are not only appreciated but are working to help us be better humans.
To join in these spaces of communication with our Spirit Guides regularly reminds us the world is far more expansive than what most people believe. It will enhance our psychic abilities, ensure we are on the right track and can lead to fulfilling our destiny. Before long our ability to receive these messages can occur outside of sanctioned ritual and we begin to receive messages all the time.
Nature is a great way to raise your vibe and connect with your guide.
