How to ask your Spirit Guides for help. If you’re a psychic development newbie, you’ve probably heard that connecting with your Spirit Guides should be on the tippy-top of your “to do” list.
And I know… everyone tells you that you need to do it… but how? Where are these guys and gals and how do you connect with them?
I know I fumbled around a lot when I first started out. I even wondered for a while if Spirit Guides were real!
But once I connected with my Guides, I don’t know how I ever survived with them! It makes a huge difference in your psychic development — and life! Today, I’m going to teach you how to connect with your Guides.
Ready to Meet Your Spirit Guides?
Maybe you haven’t met your Spirit Guides yet, or you aren’t sure how to ask them for their guidance. If that sounds like you, don’t worry! :)
The truth is, they want to connect with you and they’ll make it as easy as they can. So here’s how to ask your Spirit Guides for help…
What are Spirit Guides?
Some of you might be thinking, “Slow down! I don’t even know what a Spirit Guide is!”
If that’s you, then you’re like most people. :) But you’re here now, and it’s such a treat to introduce you to Spirit Guides. Best yet? You already know your Guides without realizing it!
Spirit Guides are the spirits that support us through life. Think of them as your spiritual BFF’s. Their “job” is to help you in whatever area of your life you need them. But wait… it gets better!
They connect with you before birth and are always with you! You have a main Guide and helper guides, and they communicate with you through your intuition.
Yep, that means you have Guides around you as you go about your everyday life, ready to jump in and lend you a hand… And they have definitely helped you without you even knowing it! (If you’ve ever felt like something or someone was guiding you or telling you not do something, it may have been them.)
So, now that you know what a Spirit Guide is, let’s talk about connecting with yours!
How to Ask Your Spirit Guides for Help
Step 1. Connect With Your Guides
Meeting your Spirit Guides for the first time is exciting, and a great way to strengthen your intuitive gifts! (Read this post for more about meeting your Guides.)
So empty your mind, meditate, and invite them in — they are waiting and ready! Simple, right? Okay, I’m kidding.
It’s not always simple to “empty your mind.” But when you’re ready to ask your Spirit Guides for help, do your best to set up a space that brings calm, peace, and openness. Think Zen… quiet, with incense or essential oils in the diffuser. Then, set the intention to connect with them.
Once the space is set and you’ve settled your mind and body, move onto step two.
Step 2. Ask
One of the best ways to ask your Spirit Guides for help is to simply ask (either out loud or in your mind is fine). Remember: your Guides are ever present, and you can chat with them any time.
So first, think of what you need help with. Need to make a hard decision? Nervous about learning something new? Performing a simple task you need help with? (Seriously, anything goes! Cooking, doing a crossword puzzle, applying for a job — whatever you need!)
Next, get a specific request ready and verbalize it. Then, be on the lookout for signs (more about recognizing signs and answers below).
Pro tip: You will eventually get so used to communicating with your Guides that you can do this on the fly, even while you are juggling other things. But at first, rid yourself of distractions and focus when you ask for help.
Okay, now that you know how to ask your Spirit Guides for help, let’s talk about how they will answer.
Recognizing Signs and Answers
Help and answers from your Spirit Guides can come in many different ways…
- Sometimes, they will appear in your mind’s eye. It’s pretty easy to see that they are helping you when that happens!
- Other times, a clear answer will pop into your head. (Don’t be fooled — that’s your Guides giving you a message!)
- Their answers might also appear as a gut feeling, sense, or a strong emotion.
And of course, there may be signs.
You might need help with a big decision and need your Guides to show you the path in a concrete way. That’s okay, just ask them for signs!
For example, maybe you were debating about what new car to get, and you start seeing the car you want everywhere. Or you were wondering if you should reach out to a friend, and see something that reminds you of them.
It’s easy to write these off as coincidence, but with practice, you’ll learn to trust your Guides. Yeah, I know… trusting can be hard at first.
But your Guides are understanding. So if you need a clear sign, ask for one! Then get super perceptive so you don’t miss the sign they send you!
Before we wrap up this post, I want to share two more ways that you can ask your Spirit Guides for help. I LOVE the second one!
3 More Ways to Ask Your Spirit Guides for Help
Meditation is another great way to seek the aid of your Guides, especially if you find it tough to speak with them. The most important thing to remember here is to keep it simple…
So breathe, and focus on what you need from your Guides. It helps to visualize it while you are meditating, too.

2. Write them a letter
Some of us are better with the written word than with verbalizing our needs. That’s okay! I love the feeling of pen scratching against paper, too.
Lucky for us, journaling is another way you can ask your Spirit Guides for help. Since they are with you all the time, when you write your request, they will receive it — instantly!
You can also write them a letter describing what you need help with. I mean, letters are so personal, right? And, you spend a lot of time thinking about the recipient as you write. So this is a great way to connect with your Guides!
Stay open to your Spirit Guides and look for their help. It might come in mysterious ways (hey, the spirit world is going to be a bit mystical, after all!)
Once you’ve asked for help, your Spirit Guides may:
- Appear to you as a vision
- Speak to you in your mind
- Give you a sense that they are around (i.e., you’ll feel their presence)
- Send you a sign
The bottom line is that they are there and ready to guide you. (Having trouble and getting frustrated? Don’t worry, you can effortlessly build a relationship with your Guides, even if you haven’t officially met.)
And feel free to keep chatting with them. Ask for their names, or give them the first name that pops into your head. (Don’t forget… you already know them on an intuitive level.)
No matter what, your Guides will offer you support and answers to help with what you need. So pick your favorite way to ask for help and go for it!
