Every single one of us has a designated Spirit Guide, sometimes more than one. These guides are loyal and dedicated to showing you what path to follow: they help, guide, and encourage you. The thought of meeting your guide can at first be intimidating, but by trying a few of these easy tips can easily connect you to their worlds of wisdom and love.
1. Ask for a sign!
I am such a believer in signs! Seriously, pay attention to the world around you... numbers that seem important, animal totems, nature that stands out like flowers blooming or feathers, sometimes even an actual SIGN like a billboard will tell you what you need to know. All you have to do is say "Hey Guides, let me know ____ please!" It's like talking to your friend, because they are your friends - ready to see you grow.
2. Meditate or Pray and Listen
Meditate on what you want to know. This is perhaps my favorite method. Close your eyes and focus on what it is you want in life. For example, say you have a BIG career choice. Stay at the job that makes you miserable or make a sacrifice and try something different. Meditate on it. Will the job get easier? Will the risk be worth it? After you have set your intention to just your options and questions, give yourself time to clear your mind. A direct or indirect answer may pop into your head in the form of a word, a symbol, an image, etc. If you need help interpreting the message, further your meditation.
3. "Stream of Consciousness" - the flow of thought.
This is an exercise my dear friend Cassandra taught me. I remember doing this as a writing exercise in school, letting your thoughts flow on paper never stopping to pick up your pen never worrying about punctuation or making sense just letting all your thoughts out. The trick is to write on paper, "hello spirit guides, please come tell me what I need to know." You can act as a conduit of their energy by scribbling whatever it is. Read the paper after and you might find some answers!
4. Dreamwork helps the Team Work!
This is an excellent way to contact angels, departed loved ones, fairies, your inner child, or guides. Before you go to bed, ask your guides to visit you in your dreams. You can ask for specific guidance or information or general. If your dreams are anything like mine, lots of interpretation may need to come into play when you wake up.
5. My Favorite - Healing Crystals
Obviously Spirit Quartz is going to be the best stone for connecting with Spirit Guides. Spirit Quartz, sometimes called cactus quartz, has such an extremely high vibration. Spirit Quartz is said to open your higher chakras to help connect you to higher planes and other dimensions. This stone will help attract your guides by raising your vibration and activating those higher energy centers. Channel your intention of meeting them and if you have a specific area that needs assistance, put all that energy in your crystal. It will intensify your experiences with your spirit guides and will amplify your chances of meeting them. Other crystals you can use to connect with guides are Amethyst, Danburite, and Celestite.
