It’s also suggested that you practice communicating with your personal spirit guide at least once week. Over time, your communication efforts will come with ease.
Below is a great exercise that can help you communicate with your spirit guide.
- For the first few minutes of this exercise, you will need to lie down on your back and close your eyes. Allow your breathing to slow. Take long and deep breaths. Notice how your body is feeling. Pay particular attention to where in your body you are feeling tense. Use your breath to release this tension and focus on letting your mind let go of your every day concerns.
- Next, imagine a bright light forming on the ceiling. Take some time to feel this light’s energy. Does it feel warm? Does is feel energizing? How does this light make you feel?
- After you are comfortable with your impressions of this bright light, imagine the light beginning to float down from the ceiling and start to take on a human form right in front of you. It’s important to let this being appear to you as it wants to. Your spirit guide can take on any shape that it needs to.
- When you feel ready, ask your guide if they have anything to share with you. You may also ask them questions. Don’t try to force an answer if you do not get one right away. Just allow yourself to experience their presence and eventually communication will occur. How you receive the information may also vary. For example, you may hear words, have a sense of inner knowing, or see visual images.
- When you feel you have completed this communication, thank your spirit guide. Now imagine the guide gently turning back into light and floating back up into the ceiling until it’s gone. Take a moment to absorb your experience. When you feel ready, open your eyes.
