What are Spirit Guides?

Everyone has one or multiple Spirit Guides in this life. Spirit Guides can come in multiple shapes and forms (sometimes they can even be identified as a symbol, a numerical code or color) and might all have a different purpose in their way of helping you. Some people think about Spirit Guides as small parts of our unconscious minds or parts of our higher selves that symbolically support us in finding wholeness, joy and peace. The main goal of Spirit Guides is to guide, protect and lead you into your right path. Spirit Guides can come and go, where some of them will pop-up themselves and others may need to be evoked or asked for guidance. It is very possible that from the moment you have made contact with one of these spirits, they will appear in your everyday life. But for this to happen it is common that, just like with friendships with other people, there is a process of recognition and appreciation. Keep an open mind and stay tuned for symbols and signs they may send you.

Spirit Guide names

If you have indeed established one or multiple Spirit Guides in your presence, you might be wondering or trying to understand their names. This can be very challenging and difficult. It is often so that you can feel the presence of your Spirit Guide because they make it clear that they are there, but they do not communicate in ways we are used to, like talking, writing or other earthly languages. In reality, their names are just like ours. Every Spirit Guide has a different and unique name connected to them. It is very understandable that we wish to assign names to our Spirit Guides. This gives more clearance into the energy created. It also allows for information and thoughts to be more organized. The result is more structure, the ability to establish a connection, and gaining peace of mind. Our brains are developed to comprehend structure and feel comfortable doing this.

The difficulty

In the spiritual world, names are not as common or as valuable because they simply think about someone and transfer the thoughts concerning them. Spirits have their own way of communication in their own language well-known in the spirit world. The messages our guides send us are in turn interpreted and translated by our own intuition into the language that we comprehend and speak on earth. If a Spirit Guide would send us their names, we have a really difficult time to translate or pronounce this since we don’t understand or speak their language. For some people this is easier than for others, but it is definitely possible to connect a name to your guide.


How to make contact with your Spirit Guides?

Making contact with your Spirit Guides can be a powerful and life-changing experience. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to start building a relationship with your Spirit Guides:

Step 1- Create a Sacred Space

Find or create a quiet and peaceful place where you can relax without distractions. This could be a corner in your room, a garden, or any space where you feel comfortable. Decorate this in a way that gives you peace of mind and allows you to just be.

Step 2 - Clear your Mind

Practice meditation or deep breathing exercises to calm your mind and clear any mental clutter. This will help you attune to the subtle energies and messages from your Spirit Guides. Breathe steadily and find your balance in the world.

Step 3 - Set Your Intention

Clearly state your intention to connect with your Spirit Guides. You can do this silently or by speaking it out loud. Express your openness and willingness to receive guidance and support. Elude openness and willingness to listen to whatever guidance comes your way.

Step 4 - Call upon Your Guides

Address your Spirit Guides by simply talking to them. You can do this mentally or verbally. Use respectful and sincere language, inviting them to come forward and assist you on your spiritual journey. Make sure that they know that you are willing and open to listening to their assistance and wisdom.

Step 5  - Listen and Observe

Remain still and receptive, paying attention to any sensations, thoughts, or emotions that arise. Your Spirit Guides may communicate with you through intuitive feelings, inner knowing, visions, or even audible messages. Be open to receiving their guidance in whatever form it may come. If you are unsure whether a message or sign was from your spirit guide, you can trust that your spirit guides are there with you.

Step 6  - Journal and Reflect

After your contact with your Spirit Guides, take some time to write down any insights, messages, or experiences you had during the process. Journaling can help you deepen your connection and provide a record of your spiritual journey. This will also help you to reflect at a later point in your life, as you can see your own spiritual journey and spiritual growth.

Step 7 - Practice Patience and Trust

Building a relationship with your Spirit Guides takes time and practice. Be patient with yourself and trust that your guides are always with you, even if their presence is not immediately apparent. The world is loud and can obstruct the overt communication with your Spirit Guides, so it is important to take the time to find your peace. Continued communication and receptivity will strengthen the connection over time and enable you to contact your Spirit Guides more frequently without having to retreat to your Sacred Space.
