Spirit guides are all around us. If you are reading this article then you are trying to connect to connect to them or they are trying to connect to you. Either way, once you connect to your guides or guides, (yes, you can connect to more than one at a time), the wealth of information you will receive is worth putting in a little time and effort.
Below are three easy ways to contacting your helpers:
Meditation will raise your level of consciousness and increase your energy vibration levels. Your guide is on the "other" side. You cannot access your guide using your human senses, therefore, you will need to meet your guide half way. By meditating just a few minutes a day, you can get a sense of your guides presence and even 'hear' your guide answering your questions. You may feel a tingling, chills, goose bumps, or even a sensation of energy pass up and down your spine. This perception is not a result of your spirit guide, but of you acquiring awareness of your spiritual state.
Also with eyes closed see if the blackness comes alive with any colors or images. What are these colors or images? Are they still or moving? Do you see anyone or anything? Don't be upset if you do not develop any images. Just for now, enjoy the peaceful sensation.
2. Automatic Handwriting
This method of connecting will help both the non visual as well as the visual. All that is required is a pen and paper and an open mind. You can use either hand for this. Keep in mind, if you use your less dominant hand your chances of encountering a message from your guide are better because your dominant hand is connected to your ego.
Hold the pen in the writing-ready position over the paper. When you ask your question, wait for an answer. Recall how you felt when you were in your relaxation mode while meditating. Bring your mind back to that feeling. This half-trance like stage is where you need to be before you can write. Your hand may feel like it needs to move back and forth before you write - allow this to happen. Or, you may simply start writing. Allow whatever needs to come to you to flow. Automatic handwriting should stream out easily so if you find yourself analyzing what you are writing, keep soothing music playing to keep your ego mind busy.
3. Inner Voicing
This is a term for speaking 'inside' your mind. This is unspoken thought that one uses to communicate mind-to-mind with your guide.
When you are inner voicing and you hear answers or have conversations, here is how you will know if the information received is from your guide or from your ego. Your guide was once a human being, so it is not up to your guide to tell you what to do with your life. Even though you are in contact with the spiritual realm, you still have free will. Your guide will help you by suggestion or bringing to light what may be blocking you from your lessons on earth. But they will never tell you what to do.
Through meditation and practice you will be able to, once again, connect with your guides. If you would like to pursue developing your psychic abilities, please visit my website and check out my classes.
