“We are stars wrapped in skin, the light you are seeking has always been within.”
All of us are spiritual beings who were born into the physical realm to learn, grow and find our purpose.
Throughout our journey here on earth, we’re continually guided by spirits. Some of us know these high vibrational beings as guardian angels, beings of light, spirit animals, deceased loved ones, ancestors etc.
They help us navigate life and align with our purpose, and they’re always with us even when it doesn’t feel like it. But, in your day-to-day life, they can’t come in unless you invite them (UNLESS you’re in a life-threatening situation, then they can intervene).
Communicating with your guides is as natural as breathing, except many of us aren’t taught they exist nor are we taught how to communicate with them so doing so feels foreign, esoteric and often times too woo.
The question is, are you ready connect with your guides? Here are 7 life-changing ways to do just that!
1.) Talk to Them
One of the easiest ways to open the doors of communication with your spirit guides is to just talk to them!
You can do this silently in your head, or aloud — whatever feels comfortable to you!
Tell them about your life, just say hi or ask for guidance or clarity about a specific issue you’re facing.
They’ll be thrilled to hear from you, and talking to them will help you develop a regular and healthy relationship with them!
2.) Practice Daily Gratitude
Like energy attracts like energy so if you want to open the portal of communication with these high vibrational beings, it helps to be in a state of gratitude.
- Gratitude has the ability to instantly shift your vibration from low to high
- Regular gratitude will result in more things to be thankful for
- Gratitude will keep the doors of communication open, and give your guides free access to your life
Every day, tell your guides 3 things you’re grateful for. Thank them for being present in your physical life, and for helping you navigate this physical experience.
Practicing daily gratitude will keep your relationship with your spirit guides open and strong!
3.) Use Guided Meditations
Meditation puts your mind in a receptive and open state thereby allowing it to connect more easily with your spirit guides.
What’s more — all of the internal mind chatter that clouds your daily life will be silenced, enabling you to relax and truly connect with and listen to your guides.
As a beginner, you may find your mind wandering a lot and overthinking. Don’t worry — this is totally normal!
When your mind begins to act up, focus on your breathing. Breathe in and breathe out.
As you inhale, focus on the movement of your body. Feel the air move through your nose and fill your chest, rib cage, and belly. Repeat this process as you exhale, but this time pay attention to the way your body feels when the air leaves it.
Make no effort to force or control your breathing, simply observe the natural process of your body inhaling and exhaling air.
4.) Do Tarot Card Readings
Tarot readings have been used for hundreds of years as a way to connect people with the divine universe and answer important questions about love, career, finances, lifestyle, relationships and more.
If you’re looking for a physical answer you can tangibly hold in your hands, then do a tarot card reading, and ask your guides to use their energy to guide your reading and give you the answers you’re seeking.
If you aren’t sure of how to do one, or where to begin, watch this video (p.s. I recommend this deck):
The more frequently you do tarot readings, the easier they become! They’re a great way to connect with your guides and get the answers your seeking.
5.) Ask Them For a Sign
Ask your spirit guides to send you a sign that you’d recognize as an affirmation of their presence. Then pay close attention to things like repeating numbers, birds, butterflies or anything else that might have a significant meaning in your life.
Then every time you see that particular sign you’ll know you’re guides are around, and guiding you!
6.) Trust Your Intuition
Have you ever felt like you shouldn’t do something, and then later found out something bad would have happened had you done that thing?
That’s called intuition, and it’s something we all carry within us. It’s an internal compass, and it usually kicks in at just the right time!
This magical synchronicity often manifests from your spirit guides, and when you follow it, you create a wave of connection with them.
What’s more — when you tune into it regularly and listen to it, your guides will know they can communicate with you in this way (and vice versa) meaning you’ll find your purpose and path quicker and with less resistance.
Turn off all distractions around you, go out into nature, light a candle or do something else that will promote stillness and peace in your life. Then, close your eyes and listen to the world around you.
What do you hear?
If your mind goes into a state of internal chatter, focus again on the breathing technique discussed under guided meditations.
After several minutes of uninterrupted listening, silently ask your spirit guides a question. Your question should be authentic and something you really want to know — don’t try to test your spirit guides, or they will play along (spirit guides have a sense of humor too!). You may hear the answer, see it in your mind’s eye or have an intuitive knowing.
By using these 7 life-changing suggestions you’ll be able to communicate with your spirit guides regularly and have fewer issues navigating your life and finding your purpose.
