Contacting Spirit Guides can be a very fun and exciting adventure.
It can also be a very frustrating task that you may never receive solid
answers from. The key is to learn to work with what you have.
the good news is that you don’t need to have a “dialogue” and be on a
first name basis with your spiritual helpers to start getting some
problem that many people have when trying to make contact, is that we
compare our own experience to the experiences of some gifted natural
For some people, contacting spirit guides comes
naturally and easily. From childhood on they have an awareness of
non-physical beings and entities. They’ve cultivated their relationship
with these spiritual helpers so that communication is as easy as
picking up the phone.
But for most of us that are used to ONLY
the physical realities, we’re used to hearing voices only when we know
that someone is speaking to us, or when the television or radio is
playing in the background. If we were to hear a voice in our head, we
KNOW that it is our own thoughts.
But it’s that same certainty
that prevents us from contacting spirit guides and other spiritual
helpers. We need to learn to let go of what we think we know so that we
can begin the experience of communicating with our own spirit guides.
Allowing Contact With Spirit Guides
more that you learn to let go and allow your guides to communicate with
you, the more that you will find coincidences and synchronicities
become a part of your reality.
Contacting spirit guides can be
as simple as silently asking your guide for help. Personally I find
that it helps me to write out what I want first, and then to ask my
guides to help. I find that the “turning it over” to them helps to ease
my mind while also making it possible for my guides to start doing
their work without me getting in the way.
One excellent method
for receiving messages is to write out questions for your guides to
answer. Then allow yourself to become silent and centered. Next
“pretend” that the answers are coming to you from your guides as you
write out the answer.
At first it probably will really just be
your own imagination, but eventually you’ll get a definite sense that
your guides are really communicating with you.
I also recommend using Guided
Meditation recordings to help with initially making contact.

given here. And that’s where books have an edge over web pages.
are many excellent books and recordings available for contacting spirit
guides. Two of my favorite authors on the subject are Doreen Virtue and
Sylvia Browne. I enjoy each of their writing styles and humor.
you haven’t read any of Sylvia Browne’s books or seen her on television
yet you’ve missed a talented and entertaining psychic and teacher.
if you have seen her on television, or read any of her books, you’ll
know that she definitely has her own opinions on the metaphysical
world. But if you’re willing to look past her strongly stated opinions,
Sylvia Browne writes some great books with often very useful methods
book goes beyond the simple exercises that I give here. I don’t always
agree with the details of her teachings, but Sylvia Browne has made the
world of spirits guides “safe and accessible” to the mainstream. So
it’s okay if she cuts a few corners. ;)
Virtue tends to use the terms spirit guides and angels as the same
thing. While I don’t agree with that definition, I still love her books
find that most of the books and recordings by Doreen Virtue are
awesome. What I love about her material is that she gives information
and advice that you can put into use immediately.

breakthroughs. Now she exclusively writes, teaches and counsels people

on your own.
