How to Talk to Your Spirit Guides
2 Simple Ways to Begin Communication with Your Spirit Guides
Method 1: ‘Automatic writing’
Sit down and take a few deep breaths. Focus on clearing your mind of distracting thoughts. Just focus on the breath.
Set the intention to communicate:
Either write down, say out loud or say in your head what it is you want to do. Make it clear and definitive. So, say/write something like, “I now set the intention to communicate with one of my guides/principle guide/whoever you want to say” (I think it helps to be specific) and add a supporting statement like “I know that this communication will be clear and I will hear exactly what I need to”. Your intention, your words are instructions to energy. Your intention, thoughts, words are what decide what will occur in this moment and in all moments of your life.
Now get a pen and some paper and write out or just ask a question, then write down the first answer that you hear.
The answer will come as words in your mind, sounding like your own voice, it may seem like you are talking to yourself in your head, but it isn’t from you that these thoughts are coming from).
Automatic writing can happen like this, where you hear and then write it out fairly consciously. But alternatively, what can happen is that you may feel a surge of energy, or just a light tingling in the hands, and find your hand is almost writing and moving without your conscious doing anything. You may have no idea what is being written until you read it afterwards, because it isn’t you writing but rather it’s your guide utilising your hands to share their message.
You may also get an image, physical sensation, a deep knowing or an emotional feeling. All communication is just reading one another’s energy and the thoughts that flow in and out of it, so you could receive the information in whatever way your being chooses to interpret it. It will probably initially come through, your primary extra sensory ability (I.e. clairaudience (hearing), clairvoyance (seeing), clairsentience (feeling), claircognizance (knowing) etc).
Take note of anything and everything you receive.
Then, write out or ask a new question and do the same thing as you did for your first query, then repeat for as long and for as many questions as you want.
Note 1: Remember, accurate intuitive impressions are almost always the very first thing that pops into your mind, so take that as your answer, even if your brain says you’re making it up because it seems to make no sense. You don’t want to put judgements on what you’re receiving, you can look at it again later to ease the ego mind if it wants to analyse it. Things often do make more sense in hindsight, rather than in the moment.
Note 2: When doing automatic writing, it can be helpful to firstly write out all your thoughts – whatever you’ve been thinking about that day, like you’re writing a page in your journal. This is so that when you do connect and write out the communication, you are less likely to have invasive, distracting thoughts that could cloud your clarity.
Method 2: ‘Feeling Your Guides’
You’re doing the same thing to begin with – sit down quietly, set your intention then ask your guides to introduce themselves in the form of a feeling. You are intending to ‘feel’ their energy as an almost tangible vibration.
You’ll feel their presence. Often their presence initially comes with a sudden feeling of warmth, love and/or bliss.
You can ask each guide to step forward one by one and you will notice subtle differences depending on which guide it is. One might come on strong and confident, the other might seem more nurturing and motherly, protective or fun – anything.
Note: Often your principal guide will be the one to step forward first.
With this method, it can also be helpful to visualise yourself meeting your guide/s. You could visualise yourself standing in a room or a garden, somewhere that makes you feel comfortable and at ease.
You can then visualise your heart beaming a light out of your heart chakra area (chest) to connect to them. Watch and wait and you will feel a connection coming back to you. It will feel like a ‘Aha, there they are!’.
Regardless of whatever method you are doing, try to be open to receiving through any of your extra sensory perceptions. Your guides will always take ‘the path of least resistance’. They will use the fastest, most effective route of communication, at least at first, which may not be that which you had in mind.
These are not the only ways to communicate, they are just some of the easiest methods to start with, in my opinion. – Becc
