Spirit guides are spiritual entities that help guide you through life. Some guides you are born with and others decide to join your life path at some point during your life. There are many different types of guides, including angels, spirits, and even ancestors of yours that have passed.
They are always there to help and guide you, sending you signs and interventions when it is needed. But you can also connect with your guides to ask for their guidance if you need a little extra help. Here are some ways to connect with your spirit guides.
Signs of Your Spirit Guides’ Presence
It can help to first understand when a spirit guide is nearby and what signs they might be sending you. Spirit guides don’t speak using words and you will rarely, if ever, actually see them. Most of the time, you only know they are there because of the different signals they send you. While there can definitely be more signs, here are some common signals sent from spirit guides:
- You suddenly feel tingles, a chill, or a wave of heat come 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 come into your head.
Start Meditating Every Day
The first way to start connecting with your spirit guides is to meditate. You need to clear your mind and start trusting your intuition, but first to do that you must meditate. Most spiritual people will recommend meditating, and it can seem a little repetitive, but that is because of how powerful and healing it is.
Meditation allows you to become more enlightened and tap into the spiritual part of yourself. It blocks out all the noise and distractions of everyday life, and helps you see with your third eye. This is needed in order to communicate with your spirit guides.
Become More Mindful to Look for the Signs
After you start connecting with your spirit guides and asking them questions, you then need to look for the sigsn of them answering you. If you are closed off from everything around you and don’t pay attention, you will probably miss them. These signs are meant for you, but if you are not mindful, you aren’t going ot see them.
Start practicing being more mindful during different moments of the day when you used to just go 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 and really focusing on everything you experience in that moment.
Ask Your Spirit Guides a Question
As you connect more with your spirit guides, you can then ask them questions. Asking a question is actually a good way to connect them. It lets them know you know they are there and appreciate their guidance. Ask something simple of them, either to yourself or out loud. You can write it down on a piece of paper or simply ask for something out loud.
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.
