Hello, dear reader! Welcome to a special edition of Order In Discord. For today’s post we’re gonna get a little spiritual and ask the question how do I contact my spirit guide? I don’t know where you’re at spiritually, but something that was very important to me while just starting off was doing just that.
I had no idea how to go about contacting my guide, but I knew I needed to do so. Finding this guide became a mission of mine. I knew that finding him/her/them would help me progress substantially, but the method of finding my guide was still a mystery.
Upon doing some research, I learned that I could contact my guide through something called automatic writing. Searching through the work of Gabby Bernstein was a breakthrough. It taught me that meditation and then writing down anything I receive was an excellent way to start.
She provided a guided meditation along with the article I found, but it turned out that I didn’t need it. I sat on the couch upright and asked a simple question in my mind: “Hi, spirit guide, can you talk to me?”
My spirit guide’s first official transmission came first in images and flashes. I had received similar guidance before (a longer story for another day), so it felt like settling in at home. Then came the hard work – translating what I received into actual words. It got easier as the message went on. By the time the message ended, I had six pages of text that I’m still trying to figure out to this day, it was so rich and layered.
You’re probably asking yourself, “How can this possibly be workable in my own life?” Well, dear reader, let me tell you five ways that you can talk to your spirit guide whenever you want. No, seriously, that’s the cool thing about guides, they’re always with you, whether you know them or not.
So how do I contact my guide?
First, ask! Ask for them to be there. Ask them questions and ask for signs that they’re replying. Even if you don’t hear or feel anything, start looking for signs in the world around you, like finding lucky pennies or the color green in many places. That’s your guide!
Second, remember your language. I’m not talking about your spoken language. Remember the often-discussed 5 love languages? It’s kind of like that – everyone has a different spiritual language because of each of us are different. What are your hobbies? What’s your favorite activity? How do you feel connected to the spiritual realm already? Do those activities and you might just hear from your guide!
Third, hone your “spidey senses”. Ever since I was young, my intuition has been very strong. In hindsight, I firmly believe that that was my guide reaching out. I’ve been able to tell when situations and people are questionable. Yeah, but how do I contact my spirit guide in this way, you may be asking? The answer is that you guide may be trying to reach out to you via your intuition or your gut instinct. Get in touch with this instinct. Set boundaries, get out of situations that scare you unnecessarily, listen to people you trust and go with your gut! If it’s true intuition, it will not steer you wrong.
Fourth, give thanks. Like most other sentient beings, your guide enjoys being thanked when they do a good job. Make note of things in your life that you appreciate and tell your guide! Gratitude also brings more things to be thankful for. It’s a cycle, so get your guide involved!
Fifth, talk early and often! Your guide wants to hear from you! I love talking to my guide via writing or while cooking. As a newbie witch, I love hearing from my guides and they help me set intentions while I make food or bake cookies. They will take you to new heights!
I hope you enjoyed this post! Stay cool!
