Everyone has spirit guides that attempt to communicate with them on a regular basis. Just because we don’t see them, doesn’t mean they’re not there. If you continuously feel like there is an energy or presence with you that you can’t explain, it very likely may be a spirit guide.
You may have started feeling this presence as a child, but for years, you never spoke to anyone about it in fear of being judged or made fun of. You should understand that everyone has a spirit guide – sometimes even several – but connecting with them is difficult when denying the fact that you have one.
The neat part here is that we can all listen to them and even communicate. The first step to getting in touch with your guardian angel or spirit guide is to recognize that you have one. Follow this simple guide if you want to learn how to communicate with your spirit guides:
Believe in Your Spirit Guide
You cannot communicate with what you believe is not even there. In order to speak with your guides, you need to first believe that you have them. Think back to your childhood and those moments when you felt them around. Perhaps you were saved or redirected by an unknown person or given advice by that random woman on the street.
Spirit guides come to us in many ways, and if we spend more time listening to our minds, bodies, and spirits, we will receive these important messages sent to us by them. A few ways we can receive these communications include:
- Clairvoyance – images that come to your head
- Clairaudience – a smell, feeling, or voice that comes to your mind
When any of these happen, write them down because it’s easy to forget. Jot down on a sheet of paper what you see, smell, hear or feel as they may very well be intuitive messages from your spirit guides.
To hear your guides, you need to be in a quiet, still, and accepting state of mind. Because they are at a higher frequency than us, they need to communicate with us in a whisper. To enhance your connection with the higher self, it’s recommended to meditate with crystals.
Amethyst, for instance, is a crystal known to hold powerful intuitive properties that can help a person connect with their spirit guide. You can use it while meditating by placing it directly on your eyebrow. You will instantly feel an increased spiritual awareness while you meditate, naturally elevating yourself to a higher state of consciousness.
Spend Time Outdoors
Being out in nature is a good way to relax your mind, strengthen your intuition, and connect with your spirit guide. Being outdoors will allow you to be in tune with the natural rhythm of the world. Settle down somewhere peaceful, close your eyes, and listen to the sounds around you.
You may hear birds, wind, or water running from a nearby creek. Once you are in a calm state of mind, ask your guides to come to you. As you sit there, you may feel a presence, energy, or sensation. This is normal. We encourage you to embrace and take note of these feelings. Building a relationship with yourself and the planet is a great step to communicating with your guide.
Speak to Your Spirital Guides
So, how do you ask your guides to reveal themselves to you? Simple! You need to ask them to reveal themselves. You can do so as you meditate or even while you sleep. Use your dreams to let them know you are ready for them to contact you.
When you are alone – whether it be at home or walking at the park – in a loud voice ask them to connect with you in this world. Let them know that you appreciate their care and guidance and are ready to get to know them better. If they reveal themselves to you, you’ll quickly notice it within the next few days.
Journaling is great for so many reasons. Keeping a spirit guide journal helps keep track of feelings and messages that come your way. Your spirit guide can communicate with you through messages, emotions, or strange dreams. Write this down as you get it so that you can look back and put the details together.
The more that you write down, the more you’ll have when you come back to analyze these writings. This will help you decipher messages being sent to us from spirit guides. Remember, that even those insignificant details may result in having a meaning a few days later.
The Third Eye Chakra
We want to bring forward another technique for connecting with your guardian angel or guides. The Third Eye Chakra is located in between both eyes. You may know this as the “Brow Chakra”. It helps increase intuition, wisdom, and our ability to think. Aside from meditation, there is another way to tap into your third eye.
Consider a Shirodhara massage. This is an ancient Ayurvedic treatment conducted by an experienced practitioner. You simply lie on a massage table while they pour warm oil on your third eye. They may also incorporate essential oils and slowly, but rhythmically stimulate the chakra.
As they do this, you may have visions or experience strange sensations as you get in touch with your spirit guides. You can also do this yourself or with a friend. Lie down in a quiet place and with the tips of your fingers slowly massage the area between your brows. Close your eyes, breathe in and out, and imagine that this area is being awakened.
Following these steps will greatly enhance the relationship you have with your spirit guides. They will get you one step closer to meeting them and communicating with them. Don’t forget that they speak with you every day – it’s up to you to listen! You can do so by following these techniques and believing in your guide.
