The spiritual entities that help guide you through life are known as spirit guides. Some guides you were born with. Those usually stay with you your whole life. Other spirit guides might decide to join you on your life path at some point and then maybe leave after you have learned a certain lesson. There are many types of guides around, including angels, spirits, and even ancestors of yours that have passed.
Spirit guides are always there to help and guide you. They do this by sending signs and interventions when you need them. But you can also try to connect directly with your guides to ask for their guidance and a little extra help if you feel you require it. Here are some ways to connect with your spirit guides.
Signs of Your Spirit Guides Presence
The first step in connecting with your spirit guide is to look for signs that they are present as well as signs they are sending you. Spirit guides don’t use spoken words, and you will rarely, if ever, actually see one. Most of the time, you only know they are there because of the different signals they send you. Of course, there are many signs, and they can be highly individual. But here is a list of the most common signals sent from spirit guides:
- You suddenly feel tingles, a chill, or a wave of heat coming over you.
- The air changes, including gusts of wind directed at you.
- You notice number synchronicities, like 11:11 or 555.
- You suddenly feel euphoric, calm, and relaxed for no other reason.
- A symbol keeps appearing to you, like seeing rainbows, butterflies, or spiders everywhere you turn.
- You continue seeing the same color everywhere, without looking for it.
- You randomly have a thought or idea that comes into your head.
Meditating is the first thing you can do to connect with your spirit guides. If you want to trust your intuition, you need to clear your mind and meditate. Meditation allows you to tap into the spiritual part of yourself, while blocking out all the noise and distractions of everyday life. It also helps you to open and see with your third eye. Both help immensely in order to communicate with your spirit guides.
Become More Mindful
After connecting with your spirit guides, you need to look for signs that they are answering you. These signs are meant for you, but if you are not mindful, you aren’t going to see them. If you are too distracted by everything around you, and you don’t or can’t pay attention, you will probably miss them!
Start practicing mindfulness during different moments of the day when you are used to just going through the motions. This might be while walking your dog, taking a shower, eating a meal, or driving to work. These moments are perfect opportunities to practice being present! This way, you can really focus on everything you experience in that moment.
Ask Your Spirit Guides
As your connection with your spirit guides becomes stronger, you can start to ask them questions. Asking a question will make your connection even stronger! It lets them know you know they are there, and you appreciate their guidance. Ask something simple of them, either to yourself or out loud. You can write it down on a piece of paper as well!
It does help to focus on what you want to ask first, whether during meditation or a quiet visualization practice. Speak directly to your spirit guides and angels, and ask them anything. It is important that you put all your faith and trust into the presence of your spirit guides in order to get the signs back.
Connecting with your spirit guides does require work from your side – but it is so worth it. So have a try!
