Have you been trying to contact your Spirit Guide? Do you feel like they are ignoring you? Well you’re not alone, this is a super common feeling. But the truth of the matter is…most likely you’ve been ignoring them.
“What?” You’re probably thinking. Yes, it’s true. And it’s not that hard to do really, especially if you don’t know how they communicate. So, I’ve put together a list of ten simple tips to help you when you are learning to develop your Spirit Guide communication. These are important and though they are in no particular order, they are all equally important!
10 Tips For Working With Your Spirit Guide
Tip #1 - Know who you are working with.
When you begin to work on developing your Spirit Guide communication, you are opening the door to the spirit world so you will naturally open the door to other spirits as well. This is something that is important for you to have knowledge about and something you should be aware of. If you are not aware of this, you could receive information from spirits who are not your Spirit Guide. Even spirits who do not have your best interest at heart; yes, as much as I never wanted to believe in bad intentioned spirits, it is true, it can happen! Therefore, you should never, ever, play with a Ouija board. To avoid working with spirits who are not your Spirit Guide, there are a few things you should know to help you tell the difference, as well as steps you should take to specifically ask for the spirit contact to be with your Spirit Guide or spirits of the highest vibration. That being said, I will give you some simple steps to help you avoid attracting undesirables.
Tip #2 - Say a prayer first.
When you are trying to contact, or connect with your Spirit Guide, always, always say a prayer first and ask for only the highest vibration of spirits who are working for your greatest good to come through. Something along the lines of, “I would like to make contact with my Spirit Guide, I am asking for my Spirit Guide to come in and make contact with me. Only the highest vibration of spirits are allowed to make contact with me, those who come from the white light of the Holy Spirit, amen,” or, “I would only like to speak with my Spirit Guide, who comes with the highest vibration and from the white light of the Holy Spirit, all other spirits are not allowed to make contact with me.” You get the idea.
Tip #3 - Spirits are attracted to us when we think of them.
Yes, it is true, when you think of a spirit they tend to come in. If you feel a spirit around you during a meditation, you can ask them to show themselves to you or ask them if they have any messages for you and just feel their presence. When you ask them a question, make sure to stay in the state of allowing, in order for the pictures to come in. If there are no pictures, then just feel their presence and enjoy the feeling of them making themselves known to you on the physical plane. Feeling their presence does just as much as allowing as far as strengthening the connection
Tip #4 - Spirit Guides do not come to you or present themselves to you with physical disabilities.
Generally, spirits in the spirit world do not have any physical disabilities they may have had here on earth. If you see a spirit who is deformed or you perceive them as angry, confused, or unhappy, you may be encountering an earth-bound spirit or what people like to call a ghost. When you are learning to develop your spirit communication skills, it is wise to avoid contact with such spirits. If you encounter a spirit who makes you uncomfortable, you should repeat the prayer for protection, a prayer like I mentioned in tip #2, until you feel them leave or you feel comfortable. Also, imagine a barrier of white light surrounding you that only the highest vibration spirits can penetrate. Lastly ask for your Angels to come in, and remove any low vibration spirits from your area and take them away. After your Angels come in, the uncomfortable spirit should be gone.
Tip #5 - Write experiences down.
It is a good practice for you to write down all of your experiences afterwards. Often, you may find that a message will become clearer when you write it down. During the moment you are receiving information you are in the process of allowing, or in a state of no resistance. When you are doing this, you are working more with the right brain. When you write things down, you will switch into a different mode of remembering and analyzing; this is where you will switch from right brain to left brain. When you make this transition from right brain to left brain, sometimes it can help you to remember things or little details you may have missed otherwise.
Tip #6 - Never do anything you would not normally do.
What I mean by this is exactly what it says; never do anything that you would not otherwise do because you think a spirit told you to do it, or that you are being “guided” in some way. Spirits do not usually “tell” you to do something in particular. They will not tell you that you should get a divorce or make an investment of some kind. When you are communicating with your Spirit Guide it is more like they are showing you what path is best to take and why. Your Spirit Guide’s role is to help you consider all things physical and spiritual before guiding you towards a decision.
Low vibration spirits, on the other hand, can and in some instances will try to influence you into making a certain decision; decisions which are meant to cause you issues or problems. Low vibration spirits can have bad intentions. In the beginning you may have difficulty distinguishing your Spirit Guide from other spirits. So if the information feels good and right in your heart, then it is pretty safe to say it is good information. If it just doesn’t feel right, then don’t jump into anything without further consideration.
Tip #7 – Physical sensations are common.
You may feel physical sensations around your head, neck, ears, back, or in other parts of your body. This can be an indication of your Spirit Guides working with healing energy to give you a healing or working on your electromagnetic system in order to help you become more sensitive to receive spirit communications. The interesting thing is that these sensations usually come after or between working on your spirit communication and development, instead of during (besides the heating up that I talked about in the chakra chapter). Some of these sensations can include things like:
- Tingling Sensation
- Prickly Sensation
- Feeling Hot/Cold
- Hot Spots
Tip #8 - Be consistent.
If you really want to develop your ability to work with your Spirit Guides, consistency is the key! Can you develop this ability without consistency? Yes; however, it takes longer and you will not become as advanced. When I say consistent, I do not mean it has to disrupt your daily routine, simply make it a part of your daily routine. In other words, make it part of your morning ritual or nighttime ritual or both.
Tip #9 – Meditation.
Why is this important? Well, because meditation is really effective in clearing out mind clutter as well as energetic clutter. It is knocking out two birds with one stone, so to speak, on a spiritual and physical level.
Tip #10 - Be Patient!
This is the one tip I think people struggle with the most: being patient. I spent two years consistently working on my spirit communication development and doing the Spirit Guide communication meditation at least four to five times a week. I spent three more years advancing and developing that skill to the best of my ability, a total of five years! Not to mention spirit communication is what I do for a living, so I practice my skill for many, many hours every single day. Does that mean you have to do what I did or do now? Absolutely not! However, don’t get frustrated after trying this a few times and think, “This doesn’t work!” You need to be committed and realistic, and understand it’s a process.
