How to communicate with spirit guides

Updated on July 7, 2011

We all have spirit guides that watch over us and often we have more than one.  They can be our relatives that have passed over or another spirit entirely from faraway lands. These spirits then help to guide us through life and keep us on the right path. 

Often we have spirit guides that draw close around us and then draw away at different times in our life. So we may have a spirit guide that will stay with us for a few years helping us to learn a certain life lesson and once that has been completed they move away from us and let another spirit guide come in.

Our guides may communicate with us in what may seem very mysterious ways at first. For example, there may be a strong voice in our heads that shouts a few words in our minds unexpectedly. For example we may hear ‘buy a cappuccino’’ if we’re tires or advice like ‘’go to college’’ if we’re struggling to learn a certain subject.

We can learn who our spirit guides are through meditations simply by asking our guides to reveal more of who they are. This can be a little bit scary at first for those who are new to communicating with spirit because the energy of the spiritual realm can be strong. But be brave, it’s all safe. However, before we do any spirit work we must always ground and protect ourselves by relaxing and saying a brief prayer. You can ground yourself by imaging tree roots coming through the floor and anchoring your feet. Ask for protection by imaging a circle of white light around you.  This ensures we are safe from unwanted energies whilst allowing our guides to come through to us.

 It can take time to get to know our guides and they won’t always give us their name at first - you may need to wait for a while to learn that. But they’re amazing beings and full of both earthly and spiritual knowledge. Many of them will have lived on the earth plane at some point so they understand our human incarantion. This means that they can tell us some of the ancient wisdom of the universe.  According to some theories, we will have met our spirit guides before we came to earth and decided which lessons to learn.

If anybody’s wondering why we don't remember spirit when we come to the earth, it's apparently because we went through what is known as the 'veil of amnesia' before birth. This allows us to learn the lessons we need to for our souls to grown. A 'de ja vous' is the closest thing people experience to remembering a life in the spiritual realm.

We can also meet spirit guides through something called Trance. Trance is a branch of medium ship where mediums give permission for guides/helpers/relatives to totally overshadow their bodies in order to give direct and clear information to an audience. The best example of this is in the film 'Ghost' where Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg) allowed Sam (Patrick Swayze) to trance her to so that he and his wife Molly (Demi Moore) could have a final embrace before he passed over to spirit completely. This practice should be performed in a closed circle with experienced people. If you are new to this practice, please don't attempt anything without seeking guidance from a knowledgeable person. Many spiritual circles will have more information about this.

The world of spirit is an incredible source of energy and wisdom that’s open to all of us. I hope that this brief introduction to spirit guides has inspired and guided everybody who has read it.

      This is great, and this is also to that christian. What you guys call angels, can be considered spirit guides. Infact Catholics have a certain ritual that they do so that they can learn the name of their guardian angels or I.E spirit guides. Catholics have a lot of misconceptions too about a lot of what this Hub has said, but I've come out of it realizing it's just fear mostly, and once you take the fear and ignorance away, you could learn a whole great deal. Either way Beautiful Hub, well written

      Hey meg, it's great to see that you're contacting your guides. One of the easiest ways is to relax and ask them to make themselves known to you!

      I written a small story series on this, it's based on true events. I also have spirit guides and Gaurdian Angels. I have learned that at times I don't even have to stay in touch with them, they will come to me. Thank you so very much for sharing this. You do great work. A.B.

      Ruth, you've just shown everybody ridiculously misguided, small-minded and out-right bonkers you are. Well done. I couldn't have done a better job myself.

      The LORD Jesus said ' I AM the way, the truth and the life'

      What you've posted is not only a lie but extremely dangerous. The only spirit guides there are are evil demonic spirits seeking people to inhabit and control. You are leading people to serious error and problems and I suggest you take down this blog and find the Truth in the Book of John
