First of all, an absolute beginner can meet his/her spirit guides. It was one of the very first things that I did. You already know them, you picked them before you were born and theyagreed to help you this time around.
To start, I would suggest that you have a pencil and paper handy. Now find yourself a quiet place. Cleanse yourself and the room thoroughly. Get good and relaxed. Fill yourself and the room with a white light. Now call your spirit guides to you. It does not matter at this time that you do not consciously know them, they will be there for you. Now say, “Please touch me.” You should feel some sort of sensation somewhere on your body. It could be chills, goose bumps, warmth or a tingling. Whatever it is it will simply be a sign to you that they are there. Having identified (for you) a way to tell their presence, you can go on to the next step, determining how many of them there are.
Ask, “Is there at least one of you?” You should feel the sensation. Everyone has at least one guide. Most people have between one and seven. Now ask, “Are there at least two of you?” If you feel the sensation, then you know that there are at least two of them. Continue this process until you no longer receive any sensation. In this manner you will determine how many guides that you have.
Next step. Say, “Number one, please touch me.” Somewhere on your body, (your forehead, back of your neck, arm, back, shoulder, leg, somewhere) you should feel something. It may be chills, goose bumps, warmth, a tingling or whatever, but it will be a pleasant sensation. Remember this touch, in fact it is a good idea to write it down. It is the I.D. of that spirit guide, and he/she will always touch you in the same spot with the same feeling. Continue the process until you have the I.D.’s of all of your guides.
Next step. Ask, “Please tell me hello.” If you can hear their thoughts in your head, you are one of the lucky ones. I wasn’t, it took me years before I could reliably “hear” them. It was not their fault, but mine, I was cutting myself off. So if you don’t hear them, all is not lost.
Assume that you don’t hear them. You can still ask questions and get answers, it just takes a little more effort, as it has to be couched as “Yes/No” questions. Ask them, “Please give me a ‘Yes’ answer.” Pay close attention to your body, there will be some movement at this point, the most common being a nodding of your head as though you were nodding a “yes” in answer to someone else’s question. The actual motion may be very slight, almost imperceptible, but you will be able to feel it. When I was using this method, I could often judge how emphatic the answer was by how energetic the nodding was, I have had my entire body jerk. Now ask, “Please give me a ‘No’ answer.” Again pay close attention to your body, there will be a motion, the most common being a shaking of the head as if you were shaking your head “no”.
Now lets get some practice, and this is an important step. Assume that there is a table lamp in the room with you and it is turned off. Ask the question, in these words, “Is the lamp on?” Did you get a “yes” answer? Were they wrong? Not at all, you asked the wrong question, the lamp is indeed on the table. Now ask the question, “Is the table lamp in this room turned on?” Now the answer should be “No.” Assume that the door to the room that you are in is open, ask, “Is the door open?” Got a “No” answer? Is the front door closed? There is a reason for these apparently “wrong” answers, they are not being contrary, only trying to get you to learn to be precise in your wording, and to make sure that you really do know what you are really asking.
As you work with them and get to know them, you will find that most of them have great senses of humor, they like a good joke as well as you or I. And they all have their own individual personalities. Once, I was helping a young man to meet his guides and he referred to one of them as “he.” Suddenly, his eyes opened wide and a smile crept across his face. He said, “I just got my face slapped. And I heard, ‘I’m not a he, I’m a woman.’”
You will also find in time that they will not be quite so insistent on the precise wording of your questions.
When you go to ask them a question in the future, it is a very good idea to first ask, “Who is with me?” Then look for the familiar I.D. touch. That will not only let you know which of your guides that you are talking to, but will also insure that it is one of your guides and not some stray spirit that happens to be passing by.
When you ask your guides for advice, ask for their opinions. They will NOT tell you what to do, but are more than happy to tell you their opinions. Put your questions to them in the format of “If you were in my position, would you …” or “In your opinion would it be best for me to …”. Otherwise, you may not get an answer. Remember that it is your life, and you have to make the decisions and live with the results.
Yes, they all have names, they are after all, people. But I have tended to discourage using names until you really develop a discernment in identifying them by their thoughts. The reason is simple. Let us assume that you have a guide named Susan. Now you want to ask your guides a question and you start out by saying, “Who is with me?” and you clearly hear “Susan.” OK, you assume that is your Susan. But unknown to you, it just happens to be some confused spirit who has recently died and is still wondering around, lost. And you are willing to talk to her! WOW! She will tell you anything that you want to hear, sure you were Nefertiti in a past life, and Queen Elizabeth, too. Mata Hari? Yeah, you can be her too if you want to. See what I mean? But that touch is a positive ID.
In the future, if a spirit shows up claiming to be a new guide for you, don’ t take it at its word, check it out with your known guides before you accept anything that it tells you.
Note – Meeting you spirit guides is a form of channeling. As with all channeling – this is not for everyone. If you have deep psychological problems – or find the guides you connect with to be negative or bring negative messages – please stop channeling. Thes exercises are to bring light and information. They could trigger your fears and cause anxiety if you want your answers to be ONLY the way you want your life to run. It is meant to help you talk to spirit in the light. It means that they will address things with you in a way that you understand – and is in your best interests based on your soul needs.
Day One: Are you there?
You are going to ask only ‘yes or no’ questions for the first few days. All questions can only be asked ONCE.
Telepathic communication with spirit is called clairaudience. These are the thoughts you get when you make the connection.
They may be accompanied by physical sensations such as:
- A pressure on top of your head. This is the opening of the crown chakra.
- A sensation on the left side of the body or face. This is the right side of the brain – the intuitive side – opening.
Sit down in a quiet place. You do not have to prepare as you would for meditation. Do not close your eyes. Listen to your thoughts only!!
- Think, “Hello! Are you there?”
- Relax and allow the answer to come naturally.
- You should hear a thought message with an affirmative answer.
- We are going to ask ‘yes / no questions’ that are not personal.
- “Is it sunny today?”
- You should hear the answer.
- “Is today Sunday?”
Continue a line of simple questions. You may stop and prepare them along the way. Spirit is there all the time to guide.
Get used to the idea of ‘listening’ to simple messages.
Day 2: Getting to Know your spirit guide
Again use only ‘yes / no’ questions – with one exception – today we find out the name of your main spirit guide. You can prepare
- Ask your question . . . then pause . . . listen to your thoughts . . . connect with the answer.
- Greet you guide with whatever greeting you chose.
- See your frequency connecting with his / hers.
- Allow your thoughts to connect.
- Ask, “Are you ready to answer questions?”
- Wait for an affirmative answer. It should be immediate.
- Ask, “Are you male?” (You may have already determined that by the tonal frequency of the messages). “Are you female?”
- “I would like to know your name. Can you tell it to me please.”
- If you have trouble getting the name – listen hard – then come as close to what you ‘hear’ as you can. Spirit will accept whatever name you give.
- “Do you like the name – – – – – -?”
Continue by asking more general questions.
You can write down questions and answers.
Day 3: Past Lives with your Guide
Prepare questions. Get comfortable. Greet your spirit guide. More ‘yes / no’ questions.
- Ask, “Did we know each other in a past life?”
- “Were we family?”
- Ask the about the nature of the relationship? Wife- husband? Mother – child?
- “Have we been together more than once? More than 5 times? Etc.
- Ask questions about the times spent together.
- Have I ever been your spirit guide while you lived on the Earth plane?
- Have you always been in my life – in this incarnation?
Day 4: Talking to your guide about the Universe
Prepare a set of ‘yes – no’ questions pertaining to the Universe. Do not ask personal questions at this time.
- Did Earth ever exist in another dimension?
- Is there life on other planets?
- Do entities watch us from UFO’s?
- Were you ever an alien?
- Are there angels?
- Do they have a heirachy?
- Do they help souls move to the next realms?
Day 5: Talking to your guide about reality and other dimensions?
- Are there many dimensions?
- Are there entities in those dimensions?
- Can a soul exist in more than one dimension?
- Does the future co-exist with the past and present?
- Is this reality a holographic projection?
- Do we have free will?
