Spirit Guides can be a great source to aide you in any healing journey. They can bring you information about yourself or about clients. They always have your greatest good in mind and will give you information that is straight from source. They absolutely love to help you. All you need to do is ask and be receptive to what messages you are given.
Everyone has their own Spirit Guide. Some people even have more than one. If you’ve never communicated with yours before it can be a fantastic avenue to explore and a fun relationship to build. You can call on them at any time to help you with any issue. They can even help you give your clients the best healing sessions possible.
There are so many ways to communicate with them. Here is a great, easy method that I recommend to get started.
In awe of your surroundings you slowly stand up and glance around the field. You notice someone off in the distance in front of you towards the edge of the grassy field. For some reason you feel drawn to this person and decide to head in their direction. As you approach this person you realize that they are someone you know on a deep level. You instantly feel at home with them and feel an unexplainable deep connection with this being. Notice their hair, the color of their skin, eyes and any dominant features. Are they male or female? This is your spirit guide. They reach out and give you a loving hug. They are so happy you have chosen to make contact with them. They lead you to a wooden bench down a short path next to the field. You follow them and sit together. If you have a question you’d like to ask this is the time to do it. Listen to their entire response. Stay in this space for at least 10 minutes.
This is such a great basic way to communicate with your spirit guide. They love to get messages to you and will take any chance you give them to try and communicate with you. Be sure to send your spirit guide Reiki from time to time as well. I beam it to them for 5 minutes at a time while saying thank you.
Sending you all love and light.

Wendy Zake @ Global Light MInds – How to Meet Your Spirit Guide – 3-10-12
Do you have ” spirit guides?” Do you know who they are? And, why you have them?
To connect with your guide follow these simple steps:
1. Relax in a quiet place. Take a few relaxing breaths in through the nose and release the breath through the mouth. Just try to still your mind.
2. When the breathing becomes “natural” speak to your guides. Silently tell them you want to meet them one at a time and that you’re open to receiving their guidance.
3. Silently ask that the guide you need to meet most at this time make themselves known to you now.
4. Imagine (see in the mind’s eye) that you’re walking up a gentle hill in the beautiful countryside. It’s warm and sunny outside. You feel the warmth of the sun on your arms and face. As you reach the summit of the hill you see a small figure in the distance coming toward you on the road. This is your guide.
5. The guide raises an arm and waives to you. You waive back. The guide is still to far to tell whether it is a man or woman. Don’t have any expectations – it isn’t at all necessary that your guide be Native American. Your guide can take any form and be either sex, or without a specific gender too.
We can deny it, but we ARE spiritual beings and if we continue to deny it, reality is going to give us a boot in the butt. We all have the ability to communicate with other consciousness, but it’s a skill that many of us must first believe in, and then cultivate. It’s a gift that doesn’t always get dropped in our lap.
Are spirit guides real? If we experience them, are they not real?
Many people don’t do much of anything important on a daily basis without consulting their guides.
Spirit guides, guardian angels… whatever we perceive them to be are always there at our beck and call. All we need do is ask.
It’s something to think about. If we dispense with the expectation of what it looks like, feels like, smells like, sounds like and let it happen, we may be pleasantly surprised. We could all use a little more wisdom, couldn’t we? ~ BP

Each and every one of us has at least one spirit guide. Spirit guides are souls that are no longer incarnated with a physical body on the Earth Plane, and they are usually highly evolved spiritually. They give us help when we need it through guidance, they provide us with needed information, and they may protect us. They also help us to grow spiritually and to fulfill our soul contract that details all that we are to experience and learn while incarnated on the Earth. Our guides can and do communicate with us. There are also numerous ways that we, ourselves, can try to communicate with them as well.
First of all, we do not need to be in a trance state, meditative state, under Hypnosis, nor unconscious to communicate with our spirit guides. Their guidance can come through in the form of Telepathy (thoughts in our mind), especially if we have an issue in our daily lives that we are having difficulty solving. They may also communicate with us through symbols, images, colors, odors, auditory sounds, and in other ways. As a matter of fact, some spirits and spirit guides may allow us to smell something that was unique to them like the cologne or perfume that they wore when they were incarnated on the Earth Plane.
Of course a lot of people would like to see their spirit guides with their physical eyes, but this rarely occurs. It has been said that it is hard for them and even uncomfortable for them to manifest into the denseness of the Earth Plane, because they exist at a much higher energy frequency. If they do manifest so that one can see them with their physical eyes, it is usually only for a very brief moment. When they do manifest physically, they may appear as the human form that they were last incarnated into on the Earth Plane, or they may appear as a streak of white light, pinpoints of light, orbs, colors, shadows, symbols, images, etc.
It is difficult to hear the voices of our spirit guides with our physical ears, because they exist on a higher frequency than our Earth Plane. I have heard the voice of my spirit guide verbally with my physical ears on a couple of occasions. His voice was very high pitched and sounded almost digitized due to the high energy frequency that he was communicating at.
Sometimes one can also hear their spirit guides communicate internally, within their mind, in the form of words as well. They can actually hear the voice of their spirit guide intuitively.
The messages that our spirit guides send to us are often like subtle intuition and are almost undetectable. However, our communication with them can grow stronger if we allow them into our life, and we ask for their help. The more aware we are of their existence, the more they tend to help. If a person is not ready to receive their messages and does not ask for help, however, they usually remain silent.
There are many ways in which we, ourselves, can communicate with our spirit guides. I will not touch on all of them, but I will elaborate on a few that I have found to be helpful. Automatic Handwriting, Telepathy, touch, guided meditation, and Hypnosis are a few of the methods that have been proven to work.
First of all, I have found Automatic Handwriting to be effective in communicating with spirit guides. Automatic Handwriting is when a soul who has previously departed the Earth Plane uses a pen or pencil to write. I learned how to do Automatic Handwriting from the book, “Spirit Guides & Angel Guardians: Contact Your Invisible Helpers”, by Richard Webster. The author suggests attaching a string with a piece of tape near the top of a marker, such as a “Sharpie” brand marker for example. The person holds the string in their hand and suspends the marker over a sheet of paper, letting the marker lightly touch the paper. Their elbow should rest against the table. A 90 degree angle should be formed between the person’s elbow and forearm. In other words, the forearm and hand end up being up in the air, but the elbow rests on the table. Try to concentrate on something else while doing it so that your subconscious mind does not influence it. For example, one could watch TV or listen to music as they are doing it. If it does not work using the hand that you write with, you could try using the other hand. One could try asking questions to see if they receive an answer. I found that after gaining some experience with the method described above, I was eventually able to simply hold a pen in my hand and allow the spirits to write through my hand. Sometimes using Automatic Handwriting will not result in anything at all, and sometimes pictures or shapes may appear instead of words. The key is to be patient and be thankful for whatever is given.
Another way of communicating with our spirit guides is by asking for divine signs. For instance, if we have an issue that we are dealing with, we could ask for our spirit guides to show us a sign for guidance. The answer is often given on TV, the radio, on the internet, in a song, in a book, something a person said, etc. There are many different ways that signs could come to us, and they are often repeated more than once to get our attention. Synchronicities may occur in which a person is in the right place at the right time for something to happen.
Our spirit guides can also communicate with us through touch. One may feel a breeze on their skin when they are indoors with all of the windows closed. Additionally, they may feel like someone is touching them lightly. Also, they may feel a tingle on their skin, warmth, or coolness. I have been able to feel my guides actually massaging my hands. I have had them massage my right hand for a “yes” answer and my left hand for a “no” answer. On a few occasions, my hand even turned purplish blue because of the cold energy from my spirit guide, as spirit energy is quite a bit colder than we are.
Sometimes one can develop their psychic eye/third eye in order to see their spirit guides. This is a form of intuitive vision. There are books and CD’s that can help to develop this. Be patient. Sometimes things like this will not happen until we are ready for them to happen.
Hypnosis and guided meditation CD’s can also allow one to see their spirit guides and to communicate with them. One can ask questions in this way and can often get the answers they need. I have found that making my own cassette tapes is highly successful also.
One thing to keep in mind, however, is that our guides usually will not give us hard core data. They will not give us the winning lottery numbers for example. They usually will not give us information about our future either. There are certain paths that our life must take for our soul’s evolution, and learning about our future may affect the outcome in a way in which the soul lesson is missed.
I also wanted to mention that it is always wise to ask for the protection of the white light of the Holy Spirit or whatever one believes in before they try to communicate with their spirit guides. One should also ask that only spirits that are of divine light be allowed to communicate with them.
There are many reasons why a person may not be able to communicate with their spirit guides. Being tired, stressed, and having too many thoughts on their mind could affect communication. Others may be skeptical or afraid. Also, it might not be the right time for communication, because the person may not be ready.
There are many ways in which we can attempt to communicate with our spirit guides. They do and will communicate with us. We need to want to be able to do it, believe that it is possible, and take the time to try. Be patient, as it will happen in perfect divine timing. As the saying goes, “The teacher will appear when the student is ready.”
