Meeting Your Spirit Guide

I originally posted this elsewhere, but a friend requested that I post it here as well. So, here we go….

Every person has a spirit guide – a friend who helps us along in life, whether or not we realize it. Some people can see their spirit guide, and some cannot, but they are always watching over you, waiting to help.

Sometimes when you’re asleep at night, your own spirit body will travel out on its silver cord to be with your spirit guide. Sometimes you go places together and then dream about them.

Sometimes your spirit guide will whisper to you in your mind. Usually you can hear him or her if you are in some danger and they are warning you to be careful.

Getting to know your spirit guide more can help you access information about your life that you might not know otherwise. Communication is telepathic, and usually we can become aware of it during meditation, dreams, or just by learning how to focus your thoughts to receive messages. The more you practice, the easier it gets. You are probably doing it already, but not aware of someone’s else’s thoughts versus your own.

The role of your guides is to gently but consistently guide you via intuitive nudges to stay on track with your soul’s purpose. In addition, if something is in your purpose to accomplish, you will find support from your spirit guides in that endeavour. They will hook you up with resources, people, money, books to help you reach your goals. They can offer insight and comfort when you feel lost.

But there is one important condition to the help they can give us and this condition serves us:

Your spirit guides will only help you to accomplish and achieve things that honour the purpose that YOU set for yourself before you incarnated.

Guides will not tell you what to do. They may recommend a course of action that aligns with your path, but they will ultimately leave it up to you. (Source)

To contact your spirit guide, try this exercise:

In a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed, sit comfortably in front of a candle or any spiritual object/symbol that makes you feel safe. You might want to have a pen and paper handy to write down messages you recieve.

As you look at the candle, focus on your breath and on the flame. Imagine a white light surrounding you and protecting you against all negativity. When you feel safe and calm, put out this intention with your mind:

I wish to contact my spirit guide.

You can think it over and over, if it helps you stay focused, or just release the intention out into the ether. Remain focused and wait for your spirit guide to arrive.

When he/she arrives, introduce yourself politely and ask him/her to do the same.

Ask if they have any messages for you and see what they say or what images you see in your mind’s eye, etc.

Thank them for their help and the message.

Allow yourself to come back to the present, and write down anything you want to remember about your guide and the messages you received.

Now that you’ve become aware of your guide, you can acknowledge them and speak to them anytime your mind is calm and receptive. 🙂
