Nobody likes feeling alone. On this journey that is life, however, there are many times that you will feel as if you are on your own in the world and need to face your challenges by yourself. However, even when you may feel this way, it is not truly the case. By your side, your spirit guide is always there, doing his or her best to show you the way—even when you’re not listening.
Knowing that you have a spiritual guide by your side can make it a lot easier to overcome life’s obstacles and rise to the challenge of being the best version of yourself that you can possibly be. However, knowing that you have a spiritual guide and actually being able to find them and communicate with them are two different things.
Once you do learn how to find and communicate with your spirit guide, however, things in your life begin to change for the better, and the difference is noticeable and sometimes even dramatically so. When you are in communication with your spirit guide and your decisions and choices are in sync with them, things in your life will undoubtedly start to work in your favor.
Knowing that this is all possible, however, is different from making it a reality. If you want to be completely and fully in touch with your spirit guides, then it takes a little bit of effort on your part in the beginning—effort that more than pays off in the long run.
So, without further ado, here is everything that you need to know about your spirit guides.
What Is A Spirit Guide?
Let’s start with delving into what a spiritual guide actually is.
Simply put, a spirit guide is the incorporeal being that is assigned to us prior to birth. As we stumble through life, they help to guide us and nudge us in the right direction whenever we need it. They have been tasked with the incredible responsibility of helping us satisfy the spiritual contract that we have made with ourselves prior to incarnation. Your higher self has helped to select your spirit guides, who aid you while you are going through this journey that is life.
You don’t have just one spirit who will be by your side throughout your life—in fact, you will have many. Some guides will stay with you from the day that you are born until the day that you leave this Earth. On the other hand, others will pop into your life once in a blue moon to aid you in specific areas of your life or to help propel you further towards goals you are looking to achieve.
These guides themselves happen to be at varying levels of consciousness. Some could be highly ascended masters like Jesus, while others might be an average spirit who has mastered a certain area of life. They could appear to have either female or male energy, but in reality, they are actually just energy. These spirits could have had physical incarnations in the mast, or they may have never inhabited a corporeal form. You could possibly be the only person they are guiding along, or it’s possible that they help many other individuals along their paths.
How Can A Spiritual Guide Help You?
Your spiritual guide guides you through life in a myriad of different ways. The paths they choose to take to help you along your journey could have something to do with what you are most responsive to and what they think will be the most effective, or it could have to do with what means are available to them.
Some things they could have involvement in include gut feelings or intuitive insight, if you ever experience these things. They also could communicate with you by sending signs that help you to see what the right course of action is for you.
Another thing that they can do to aid us along our paths is to send certain people into our lives who they know will help positively influence us.
5 Ways To Help You Communicate With The Spirits
There are a number of things that you can do to better communicate with the spiritual world. At first, these things may feel awkward and forced, but over time, especially as you begin to see what a powerful force in your life your spirit guides can be, they will become second nature. In fact, many aspects of communicating with your spirit guide will become comforting, calming, or enlightening. Just give it a try and see for yourself!
Here are some methods you should try to have a stronger connection with your spiritual guides and be more in tune with them. Remember, though, just one strategy may not be enough to accomplish the connection you are looking for. It is a good idea to try several or all these techniques and find what works best for you and your guide.
This is the most important aspect of communicating with your spirit guide. As we mentioned before, you’re likely going to want to try several tactics to communicate with the spirits—and this should definitely be one of them.
We live in a world where is it all too common for people to want to fill up space with their own words. It’s very easy for most people to speak, but much harder for them to listen. You’re not going to hear any of the messages they have for you if you’re not willing to listen. They already know everything they need to; there is nothing you need to tell them. Instead, just sit back and be open to receiving signs from them.
Meditation is one of the best ways to find inner peace and to connect with your inner self as well as with your spiritual guides. Find a quiet place and sit in a comfortable position, close your eyes, and imagine yourself walking into a place where you are comfortable. From there, ask your guides to appear before you. Whatever pops into your mind, just try and speak with them, and see what they say. Over time, your connection will become stronger, and you’ll learn to separate what is coming from your own mind, and the advice that is coming from your spiritual guides.
Trust Your Intuition
That feeling or voice you get in your head giving you strong messages is something that you may attribute to your own brain talking. However, it is likely not. The nagging reminder to slow down, relax, or to strike up a conversation with a stranger—these are messages coming directly from your spirit guides. You need to not only listen to your intuitions, but trust it as well.
Watch for Signs
Your spirit guides often try to communicate with you by sending signs your way. However, if you don’t have an open mind to them, these carefully orchestrated signs just might slip your notice. On the other hand, you don’t want to be too on alert for signs and start seeing things that aren’t there. Just because it’s a rainy day outside doesn’t mean you’ve made a bad life decision. If you practice at it for long enough, you’ll start to be able to tell the difference between what is a sign and what is not.
It’s a good idea to go out and buy a journal specifically for communicating with your spirit guides. You can write to them in your journal and ask them questions, like “What should I do?” and “Am I on the right path?”
Write down details of your situation and what you are talking about specifically so your spirit guides know precisely what you are struggling with and how to help you. This journaling can be therapeutic in ways and may help you reach a conclusion on your own, but it’s also a great way to communicate with your spirit guides.
Once you have written out your question, listen for an answer. You may start writing things down that don’t sound like your own voice, or get an intuition or gut feeling. You may even see a sign. Whatever way your guides try to communicate with you, it’s a good idea to write it down for future reference. And, if your guides lead you down a good path, it never hurts to say thank you! It’s always good to be appreciative of your guidance and the good fortune it may bring you.
As you can see, there is a lot that you can do to build a stronger connection with your spirit guides and communicate with them more easily. Over time and with practice, you will see a vast improvement in how you are able to communicate with these beings, and it may vastly improve your life. With their guidance and help, you are never truly alone.
