Contacting Spirit Guides

CONTACTING SPIRIT GUIDES & ANGELS


Everyone has benevolent guides and angels with them, whether they know it or not. There are so many benefits to becoming aware of and communicating with these high spirit beings I couldn't possibly list them all. Just know they are always supporting you, and the more consciously and directly this happens the better.

My own experience with bright spirits... angels, spiritual teachers, and deceased loved ones... over many years has been a priceless benefit for my growing, personally and especially spiritually. There are a few things I've learned that I can share:


- Becoming aware of and communicating with guides and angels is easier than most people think. There's a simple meditation
at the end of this article for starting out. Once you've established a relationship with them you may just chat any old time.

- Doubts are natural at first, because this is new and because most of the world considers it slightly nuts. With time and feeling their presence your confidence will grow. What cinched it for me in the beginning was, whenever I did what they suggested it worked out well... far better than if I'd gone my own way. Besides, when you open to the love it's very convincing.


- Communication with guides may take many forms, the most common being telepathy, or intuitive communication, in your mind. They will also give us pictures or memories or feelings or dreams or events in nature and with people or
symbols or visions or astral journeys or smells and tastes or a subtle sense or hunch... and so on, in forms that have meaning just for you. Whatever form the message takes, the feeling with it is, "This is for me."

Your relationship with your guides will be unique and will evolve as you grow.

- Trying to figure out meanings with your mind doesn't work well. Instead, just listen and feel or sense what the message is. If it's not clear you can always ask a more specific question. Or "Hey! What did you mean by that?"

- Our guides and angels are purely accepting and loving, although they may challenge or even tease us in ways that get us to let go and go further. (They do have a sense of humor.)

- We are not subservient to our guides but they consider us as equals working as a team, although their wisdom is far greater than ours. For things to work out best I always "do what I'm told".

- Communication with spirit beings should be two-way. We can ask for help with something or for questions to be answered, and then let go and allow them to give to us in their way.

- We don't need to explain everything about a situation since they already know more about it than we do. My most frequent request has always been simply, "Please help."

- Demands don't work, usually, unless they see we need some sort of confirmation. Openly asking is always good.

- As my angel said long ago, "How is none of your business." Which means, don't tell them how to help you. Keep your long range intent in mind and see how they work out with you.

- Yes, we can ask for help for someone else... letting go of how that might work out... and even If.

- Holding on to a hierarchy or definitions of which types of guides and angels do what is completely beside the point. It's our connection, communication and love that truly matter.


Meditation to Contact Your Spirit Guides
  1. Take time to make yourself comfortable, switch off the phone etc. ...
  2. Take slow, gentle breaths in through your nose and concentrating on the out breath through slightly open lips...
  3. Feel the air going deep and low into your body; feel the stale negative air and feelings releasing.....
  4. Breathe in, breathe out... Breathe in, breathe out...
  5. Place your focus and attention only on your breathing... Feel your body begin to relax... With each breath you take in, feel all the tension sift away from your body, leaving you calm and relaxed... Your thoughts drift in and out through your mind... Let them flow as your mind becomes quieter.
  6. Mentally place a silver or gold shimmering haze of energy around your whole body, letting it expand each time you exhale. Let this keep you safe you from any negative thoughts and energies.
  7. Gently let the feeling come in that you want to contact your own personal guide.
  8. Create a place you can visualize in your mind, somewhere you find peaceful and know you are safe - like an anteroom of light.
  9. Your guides can take on any shape. Think about how you feel your guide may look. In time they will take on whatever form they wish to appear to you, or no visual form at all.
  10. Have a list of questions you would to ask your guide or guides. The answers may take a few days to filter from your your higher self down to your physical being.
  11. Remember to thank them. They don't need our gratitude, but we do.
Once you have reached a beginning level with this form of contact your natural ability to connect with your guides will gradually improve.


Enjoy!

Hi Xan,

Thank you for your posts on meditations and on contacting spirit guides; they are very helpful! I have a question: what if the message I receive from my angels is different, conflicting even, with a message received by a more experienced channeler? Which message should I trust, or is there an element of truth to both? How do you go about receiving clarification on subject matter?

Thank you for your insight!

Blessings,
Laurie.

Good question - I'm very interested in hearing thoughts on this as well.

I'm glad to be of help, laurier.

I would go for a third opinion. You could do this in a few ways.

- Ask someone who knows you well and who is usually pretty objective to give you some intuitive mirroring.

- Wait a bit. Then make sure you let go of both messages and start fresh... clearing your mind well before asking your guides again.

- You might phrase the question to your guides differently, more from your feeling than thought, more from your heart than your head if you know what I mean.

- While you're waiting for these things to sort themselves out in you, your own intuition may show you how both answers are right in some way, reflecting different aspects of the situation.


How I know what's clearly from spirit and not from my own mind is... letting go entirely and opening deeply to the quiet space within myself... then trusting whatever comes from This.
