Meeting your Spirit Guides. If you’ve been here before, you’ve often heard me talk about Spirit Guides. And it’s with good reason that they’re talked about so much…
But before you reap the goodness of having a Guide, you have to connect with them.
And I’m going to teach you how with these five super easy tips.
Who are Spirit Guides?
Spirit Guides are souls that offer us spiritual guidance in our daily life. Their sole purpose is to guide us through our human experience.
Along with your guardian angels, loved ones in heaven, and Ascended Masters, they’re part of a divine support team that nudges you in the right direction and watches out for you.
But, unlike your bestie, you can’t just fire off a text to your Spirit Guides the next time you need advice. Instead, you need to connect with them through your intuition.
Best yet? It’s easy (and worth it) to do this.
Before you get started…
Let’s set an important ground rule: Don’t stress.
Some beginner psychics worry they can’t connect with this type of spirit. But you can move forward with confidence because…
Your Spirit Guides want to connect with you — that’s why they’re here.
They are already around you, working their magic. On a daily basis, they offer you their loving, divine wisdom. They are here and always have been, since the moment you were born (and even before that!)
It’s just that, in our crazy-busy lives, we don’t always notice them — kind of like dust. Dust is always in the air, but we don’t notice it until it’s covering our TV stand and our partner asks, “Um, are you gonna break out the Swiffer any time soon?”
So, really, all you need to do is learn HOW to meet your Guides, which is what I’m going to teach you now.
5 Tips for Meeting Your Spirit Guides
1. Set an intention
Believe it or not, meeting your Spirit Guides starts with one simple thing: asking them to be a part of your life. I mean, how would you get to know your new neighbor if you didn’t go over and chat with them?
So, take a moment to acknowledge your Guides. Let them know you are open to receiving their guidance by:
- Writing your intention on a piece of paper. You can say something as simple as, “I am thankful that my Spirit Guides are part of my human experience.” Then, place the paper under your pillow or wherever you’d like.
- Sitting quietly or meditating. As you do, imagine how it will feel to be connected to your Guides. Allow these positive feelings and emotions to wash over you… Imagine yourself surrounded in pink light, and feeling the immense love of your spiritual team.
- Asking them a question. Chat with your Spirit Guides throughout the day. They can always hear you. If you have a question for them, ask it. Then, be on the lookout for signs!
Of course, these wise souls are already around, but by setting an intention, you are letting them know that you are ready to pay attention to your intuition, and the signs that they send you.
2. Get to know your Guides
Make a “date” with your Guides to get to know them. Even 15 – 20 minutes a week ‘hanging out’ with your Guides will help you feel more connected, and strengthen your intuition.
Once you’ve set time aside, get comfy. If you want, have a paper and pen, and your favorite crystal handy. Next, go back to your childhood days, and imagine chatting with them in your mind. Or, if you prefer, write everything down in a journal.
Now, start asking them questions like:
- What is your name?
- Can you show me what you look like?
- Were we in a past life together?
- What would you like me to know right now?
When you’re done chatting, thank them, then blow into the palms of your hands to ground yourself.
In the next few days, pay attention… Do you notice that you are having more hunches or intuitive nudges? Is that little voice inside guiding you to try something new? If so, great! These are all signs that you are connecting with intuitive guidance.
If not, don’t worry. These loving spirits are around you, and are always helping. With a little practice using the tips in this post, you’ll develop a bond with your Guides, and bring a touch of the divine into your daily life.
3. Imagine you already know your Spiritual Guides (hint: you do)
Fun tip: You’ve shared many past lives with your Guides! So, on a higher level, you already know them. Woohoo!
To reconnect with them, sit quietly with your eyes closed for about 20 minutes. Now, use your imagination to dream up what they are like!
Don’t worry about feeling silly or extravagant. Imagination is a powerful way to open your psychic abilities because it gets you out of logical mind and unlocks your intuition.
So, start asking questions like:
- Who are my Spiritual Guides?
- What do they look like?
- How many Guides do I have?
- What are their names?
- What is their personality?
Let yourself go with the flow, and don’t stress about being right or wrong. Simply imagine that you already know the answers to all of these questions (because you do!)
Tip: If you want, you can get yourself a beautiful journal and sparkly pen, and write all the questions out. Plus, this will give you a record of your spiritual journey!
4. Name your Guide
This is something you can start doing right now, before your logical mind has a chance to take over and tell you it’s silly. It’s a powerful tip, and my students LOVE it!
Meeting your Spirit Guides can be as easy as giving them a name and starting to chat with them.
Oh, and in case you are wondering, gender doesn’t matter. These spirits have masculine and feminine energy, so name them whatever feels right to you. Again, you can’t go wrong. They really don’t mind what you call them, as long as it resonates with you.
Once you’ve given them a name, start a conversation with them.
I named one of my Guides Esmeralda because it sounded like a cool Spirit Guide name. The first time I connected with her, I felt a little silly, so I started with something simple. I asked, “Esmeralda, can you remind me to pick up some tea?” Then I thought, “Yeah, right, like that’s gonna happen.”
Later that afternoon, I went to the market to grab some groceries. With my daughter getting restless, I forgot all about the tea… until I saw a woman handing out free iced-tea samples. I couldn’t believe it! It was like the biggest, most obvious sign from spirit with the reminder that I had asked for!
The more I got used to trusting my Guide, the more connected I felt to her. In time, more and more Guides came into my life, including one to help with my intuitive gifts!
Tip: If you’re a beginner psychic, remember to trust and go with the flow. Relax, and don’t overthink things. In time, you’ll become more confident that these loving spirits and guardian angels have your back!
5. Draw it out
When I’ve tried drawing my Guides, they just look like stick figures. But some people are artistic and are able to draw gorgeous pictures of their Spirit Guides.
If you’re one of those people, get out the paper, colored pencils, and go for it!
Drawing can be a fun way to meet your Spirit Guides. Like the tip above, it helps you set doubt aside and unlock your intuition via your imagination. Plus, the pictures are nice to hang in your space so that, when you’re meditating, you have a visual image of your Guides.
And hey, if you can only draw stick figures, don’t let that stop you. The picture might not be frame-worthy, but it can still help you get a visual of your Guides!
