When talking about Spirit Guides, I refer to the advanced spiritual energies that teach, guide, create, heal or support us while on this journey on earth. I would like to share a little information on contacting your SPIRITUAL GUIDES.
Whilst on this earth plane, we are all spiritual energy beings living in a human physical body. We have Spiritual Guides, teachers, healers and protectors (or gatekeepers as I call mine), around us. Some of us are aware of these energies. They are with us for different purposes. As we progress through our life our Guides may change depending on what lessons we are learning. Our Spirit Guides come from the other side, the Realm of Spirit or Heaven. Use the language that you are comfortable with. It is all the same place.When teaching and during my readings I am constantly in contact with my Guides. I will explain today about some different types of Guides and offer some guidance in how to safely make contact with your own Guides.
Who or what is my Spirit Guide?
We all have them. They are souls that lived on this earth plane. They choose to spiritually advance themselves and become Spirit Guides. Spirit Guides each have their own specialised area of expertise. Often in past lives they were in this career or life experience as well. A Spirit Guide will come into your life when an issue or guidance is needed under their “specialised field/area”. We attract new Spirit Guides as we grow and change. Their purpose is to offer guidance, support and help those living on this earth plane, including our animals.
What do my Guides look like?
Your Guide will choose to manifest themselves to you in any form they wish. This can be a human form, animal, shape, symbol, colour or object. Do not have any preconceived ideas and just allow your senses to open. We all would like to think we have some important religious figure or superstar but often this is not the case. Myself, most of my clients and students have simple human forms, animals colours and symbols. One of my students has a magnificent plum tree.
Can anyone make contact with their Guides?
You do not have to be psychic to connect to your Guides. All that is required is the desire to connect, patience and practice. You need to be able to quiet your thoughts and open your senses. Many of us make contact while we are asleep but cannot remember upon awakening. How often has the solution to your burning question been answered when you have awakened in the morning?
What type of Spirit Guides are there?
There are many different types. I believe we have between 3 and 7 around us most of the time but there are more in our outer circle. Here are just three.
highest good. If you are also faced with a difficult or hard situation they can offer you support. It is comforting to feel them near you. Your gatekeeper and healer can also help earthbound Spirits to “cross over’ if needed.
HOW DO I CONTACT MY SPIRIT GUIDES?
There are many different ways but I will take you through the process I use in my development circles. It is important in any development work you are feeling well and are in the right frame of mind. I recommend you use an experienced teacher to guide you or support person if this is new to you.For those that are more advanced in their development it is easier to make the connection as you have already developed some of your senses. Record all you receive, have a journal and pen ready, dictaphone or use voice record on your cell phone.
~ Create your physical space where you will not be disturbed. You may like to cleanse the area, use incense or set your mood with music. Some say a prayer or blessing. You must feel comfortable and relaxed and do what is right for YOU.
~ Take yourself into a meditative state using techniques that work for you to relax your body, calm your mind and open your senses.
~ Ask for a golden sphere of love, light, protection and healing come into your body filling your physical, emotional, spiritual levels and your entire auraic field.
~ Take yourself to a safe spiritual place where you have visited before in meditations, or ask to be taken to a sacred place. If you find it hard to visualise – once relaxed and filled with golden light, gaze into a flickering candle flame.
~ Ask, either in your mind or out loud, for one of your Spirit Guides to move in closer to you.
~Open all of your senses – seeing, hearing, and tasting, smelling, feeling and knowing.
~ Your Guide may come to you as an image, thought, pattern or as feelings.
~ Do they have a name? How old are they? What do they look like? What type of Guide are they? How long have they been with you?
~ Ask your Guide for any messages. Ask for any gifts or advice. This may be an image that rushes into your mind and often is symbolic.
~ Take your time and be aware to at the same time of your physical body, do you have tingling, pressure or other physical symptoms?
~ When you are ready you ask for your Guides to step back. Thank them for their information. Give them permission, if you desire, to help you remember any dreams when they contact you and to show you symbols or answers for your questions.
~ Ground yourself and bring yourself back into your physical body. Drink a glass of water.
Immediately write or record all of the information you have received. Please be patient as often you may only get a small snippet of guidance or information. It takes time to build a connection as they are on a higher vibration than us and I liken it to tuning a radio into a far away station. Over time you will build up a profile of your Guide and their relevance to you. As new Guides move in and others go it is a wonderful way to reflect on your journey. Please remember that may times in the beginning they will just make themselves known to you. They don’t give you a book with all of life’s answers. When they do give you a message, and they know you have understood it, it is celebrations all around. Sometimes we may get messages we did not expect but I believe we always receive the messages we need to hear.
