Let's talk about how to connect with your spirit guides this week with seven easy tips I offer my clients and students.
We all have spirit guides and when you have a relationship with your guides you will receive clear and wise guidance to help you in every area of your life. They are not in physical form which means they are not bound by the natural laws of this world. They’re spiritual beings.
These steps work together to help you establish a relationship with your spirit guides.
Once you begin connecting with your spirit guides, there are different ways you might experience their presence.
Some will experience their presence as an inner knowing. You may feel or sense your guide’s presence, or “hear” a voice within, like a strong intuition or realization. Some, although very few, people audibly hear (or see) their guides.
Little glitters of light are another indicator of a guide’s presence. I LOVE glitter so often times when I my guides are with me, I see little sparks of light. Again, some may 'see' this within their mind's eye and other may see it with the physical eyes.
Connecting to your spirit guides is about learning to rely on your personal intuitive abilities and believe in your ability to connect. There is no reason to fear connection with your guides. They are there to offer guidance and insight with creative solutions and beautiful opportunities.
Tip 1: Ask!
Yes, asking for their connection is often times the most simplest way to connect. When we ask for the connection, it gives them the 'nudge' (if you will) to send some super obvious signs your way so that you understand that they are there. Get into the habit of asking your spirit guides for help. The more you ask, the more you receive — period.
Tip 2: Listen. (all the time)
Yes, another easy one! Although this one takes a little more finesse. You have to be open for the messages to come through to you in any way possible. That might be through a feeling or thought, but it could also be from a billboard, song, or even a saying on a t-shirt of a passing stranger. Don't discount any of it....you'll know when it's a message. Your gut will tell you so. So don't let your logical mind interfere with the magickal one!
Tip 3: Let them write with you.
Okay, so this one might be a little more 'woo woo' than others, but trust me when I say that this can be profound in exercise. You will allow yourself to become quiet (in whatever way that means to you) and then ask your guides to write to and through you. Then you pick up your pen and let it flow in whatever words, phrases, or stories it may produce. Only after you feel that you are done writing should you go back and read what you wrote.
Tip 4: Ask for a sign.
This is taking asking for their connection just a step further. Here is when you have a specific need for guidance where you ask for a sign of maybe a choice you should make or something similar. That good 'ole "Just give me a sign if I'm making the right choice here" moments in life. Yeah, we all have them!
Tip 5: Trust them!
So you remember a time in your life that someone told you over and over (and possibly over again) that you should or shouldn't do something....and you didn't head that advice? Make it much harder on yourself and just trust that their guidance is in alignment with your highest good and they are trying to make things easier for you. Trust in the messages that you get!
Tip 6: Bring your inner kindergartener out to play!
So much fun! Bring your little kid back out to interact with their imaginary friend. When you begin to interact and 'play' with your guides (even when you feel silly and can't feel anything) they begin to 'play' back. Then in one beautiful, amazing moment in time you will actually feel a response to your action from them. It will amaze you and maybe even freak you out a bit, but from that point on it will never NOT happen for you again. You've opened the channel of connection through the innocence of a child playing not knowing that they "can't" or "aren't supposed to be able" to do.
Tip 7: Trust YOURSELF!
This is the hardest of them all for most it seems. Here is where you have to step into the realm of belief in your ability to connect. Yep, I told you it was the hardest. But here's a little tip to make it a bit easier. Take 5 minutes out of your day to settle into a nice comfy spot. Set your timer if you want even. The only thing that you must do before you start your five minutes is to tell yourself and your guides that you are open to all messages that come through during this time and that they are 100% truth. Then start your timer (or just BE if you're not using a timer) and let the intuitive information flow to you. Have a pen if you want, a voice recorder, or just simply let the thoughts come to you. Whatever you see, feel, and hear in that time is to be 100% believed that it is from your intuitive connection to your guides (and higher self). Once you start doing this as a practice, you'll notice that the settling in time gets easier and that your brain starts to switch from questioning to trusting your intuition.
So, there are my 7 tips to help you to connect with your spirit guides. I LOVE to help people open up so that they can create and maintain their intuitive flow from spirit and source. That is why I took the time to create my Discover Your Intuition course. It brings simple, easy, and understandable information along with actionable ways to develop your own skills so that you can stay in the intuitive flow and Live a Magickal Life daily.
