how to meet your spirit guide

Your Spirit Guides Are All Around You

Whether you can sense it or not, each of us has a council of guides around us. They are positive and helpful spirits who have beautiful and healing guidance for us, can intervene to protect us, and can help us to ascend to our highest spiritual levels.

But How Do You Find Your Spirit Guide?

In my practice of helping people to connect to their spirit guides, I often get asked the question, “How do you find your spirit guide?” For someone just starting to build that connection, it can seem overwhelming to try to connect to angels, saints, ancestors, elemental spirits, and all the other forms that our guides can take.

The good news is, it’s really not that hard but you need to know some helpful steps to get started in your relationship with your guides.

1. Prepare Mentally

Ask yourself, “Am I in the right frame of mind?” Are my thoughts open-minded to who I might meet or am I skeptical? Am I thinking, “This is stupid?” If so, you might want to wait for a time when you are thinking more open and optimistic thoughts about meeting your guides. Cultivate a childlike imagination and openness to the idea of your spirit guide and who you might meet and you will be well on your way to meeting them.

2. Prepare Emotionally

Ask yourself, “Am I feeling light, happy and joyful?” While we can always call on our spirit guides when we are down, feeling sad or hopeless (And they are so great at bringing us back up to our highest vibrational places), but when we are first trying to truly meet them, our negative emotions can make us have doubts and fears.

Are you afraid of meeting your spirit guide? Are you feeling nervous or unsure? Then, it’s probably best to save your encounter for a time when you are feeling excited and happy.

3. Prepare Physically

When you are trying to find your spirit guide for the first time, it’s best to get in the right physical space. Make sure you are not hungry, tired, or thirsty. Make sure you are in a space that is quiet and where you feel at peace and do not have too many distractions (put down that phone! 😀 )

To really get the space ready, you can light a botanical incense on a charcoal or make a smokeless incense by making a spiritual “tea,” adding it to a spray bottle and spraying your room. You can also put on some quiet meditative music for drawing you deeper into a quiet space.

4. Ask To Meet Your Spirit Guide

Once you have prepared your mind, your heart and your space, you are ready to begin. Sit or lie down and let your guides know that you are ready to meet them. I love to ask them out loud for what I want. When I do that, it seems to center me and at the same time bring my focus to the intention at hand.

A great example of the words that you could use to meet your spirit guide could be something like:

“Beautiful and loving spirit guides. I am so thankful that you are around me, lovingly protecting me and guiding me. I would really love to meet you and build our loving connection to one another.”

Your spirit guides are all loving spirits of the highest vibration who want only to assist you and protect you, you can always add on something like the following if you are feeling you need some extra gate-keeping:

“I am inviting a connection with only my spirit guides — guides of the highest vibration who bring helpful and clear messages for my very highest good.”

Get into a quiet and meditative state and prepare to find your spirit guide. (If you need help getting into this state, I have a free guided meditation for meeting your spirit guide that you might find helpful).

5. Listen to the Messages that Come Forth

The guides can have interesting and subtle (or sometimes really direct) ways of transmitting messages to us. Depending on your natural gifts, you might get a vision of your guide in your mind’s eye (clairvoyance), you might hear words in your mind’s ear (clairaudience), you might get an inner-knowing (claircognizance) or a physical sensation like goosebumps or chills (clairsentience).

Pay attention to the subtle changes and messages that you experience and acknowledge them as messages from your guides. Oftentimes, these messages are subtle and if we are skeptical, we can write them off as our mind playing tricks on us. This is why it is so important to cultivate an attitude of openness and receptivity.

6. Ask for Signs

When you are connecting to your guides, you can ask them to show you signs that they are around you. Sometimes, they will show you or tell you what that sign will be while you are in your meditation and you will see that sign over and over again as you are out living your daily life. Other times, you might ask and they won’t tell you, but they will show you when you are out in the world.

For example, I know that one of the signs that my guides have for me is giving me a feather. As a result, I have had the guides leave giant peacock plumes, iridescent macaw feathers, day-glo dyed marabou feathers and all kinds of magical colorful feathers in my path just to remind me to pay attention or to let me know that they are around me.

Other signs that the guides might give you are seeing repeating numbers, seeing lights or shadows, having books fall off the shelf (pay attention to the title of the book), seeing sparks, seeing lightbulbs go out spontaneously, finding coins on the street, seeing a word or symbol over and over again, the list goes on and one. Just pay attention to patterns and synchronicities.

So whether they tell you during your meditation or while you are just living your life out in the world, pay attention to these important messages.

7. Thank Your Spirit Guide

Once you have had your encounter and you feel complete, thank your guides for connecting to you. I always find it helpful to say these words out loud. You can say something like the following:

“Thank you, dear spirit guides, for connecting to me and giving me these beautiful messages. I look forward to connecting with you again and throughout my day.”

Continue Your Connection to Your Spirit Guide

Once you’ve had your encounter with your spirit guide, don’t let it stop there. Create a spirit guide altar, talk to your guides, look for messages, and most importantly, ask them for help with what you are needing right now.

I love the idea of writing a letter to your spirit guides and listing the top three things that you need help with at this moment. Write them a letter, burn it over a dish and then sprinkle the ashes in the wind so that the message goes out into the spirit realm. Then watch for the signs, messages, direction, and synchronicities that the guides place in your path.

Working with the Spirit of Black Hawk

Post Type: post

working with the spirit of black hawk

Who Is Black Hawk?

Black Hawk (who was born Ma-ka-tai-me-she-kia-kiak), was a famous Native American war leader from the Sauk tribe in the American Midwest. When Native Americans were being forced off their lands by white American settlers in the early 1800s, Black Hawk led several successful attacks to defend the lands of his tribe. 

Black Hawk and Spiritualist Churches

There is a long history of Spiritualist churches working with Native American Spirits. The spirit of Black Hawk came to Mother Leafy Anderson in the 1920s as her spirit guide and has since contacted many other spiritualists to guide them. (By the way, check out the gorgeous spirit lights around Mother Leafy Anderson in the photo above.)

Black Hawk is particularly attracted to helping those who are fighting social injustice, to protect those who have been oppressed by “the system,” and those who have Native American ancestry.

How to Work with Black Hawk

If you would like to work with Black Hawk (or any spirit or deity, for that matter). I recommend that you first ask the spirit if you may work together. If the answer is a yes, you will be given some sort of sign. For those who ask to work with Black Hawk, I have heard many different possibilities of signs – seeing a hawk in the sky, seeing an image of or the word “Hawk,” seeing Native American imagery and so on.

Spell to Work With Black Hawk

If Black Hawk agrees to work with you and you would like his aid and guidance, I recommend the following spell:

Choose a Black Hawk candle of a color that is aligned with your intention (red for love, green for prosperity, white for general blessings, blue for healing, yellow for success, orange for opportunities, purple for power, or brown for legal matters).

Inscribe your intention around the base of the candle. Be sure to word your petition in a gracious way that doesn’t sound demanding, for example, “Black Hawk please aid me in protecting my loved ones” – that “please” is important. Black Hawk will be more likely to help you if you approach him with the respect and reverence he deserves. 

Dress the candle with an appropriate spiritual oil and place it on a dish or tray. As you dress the candle, respectfully ask the spirit of Black Hawk to assist you in your worthy cause.

Leave an Offering for Black Hawk

Place five Indian Head Pennies and three whole fruits around the base of the candle; small apples are an excellent choice, as they are regional to the midwest and less likely to go bad while you do this spell. 

Thank Black Hawk in advance for his help and sprinkle the candle with Tobacco to assist your connection to him before lighting for your intention.

Burn your candle for three nights, snuffing it out before you go to sleep.

After the candle has burned completely, retrieve the pennies and use them as talismans to keep the spirit of Black Hawk close to you.

Eat the fruit or offer the fruit back to the earth as compost.

Soften the remaining wax with a hairdryer and mold it into a talisman for your altar or bury the wax in your backyard.

Look for signs that Black Hawk is communicating with you and assisting you from the spirit realm.

How To Manifest Abundance By Working With Your Spirit Guides

How to Manifest Abundance

How to Manifest Abundance by Working with Your Spirit Guides

There are many methods to manifest abundance but one of my favorite ways to do this is by working with spirit guides. Working with spirit guides is a powerful practice in general but when we invite our guides to assist us with our prosperity and well-being we bring on a dream team who can lead us to amazing results.

What Does it Mean to Attract Abundance?

To begin to work with your spirit guides in this way, you first have to understand what it means to attract abundance. Abundance is a state of having your needs met and manifesting abundance means those needs are met easily.

There are many forms abundance can take and each of us have our own ideas on abundance. Many people equate abundance with prosperity but financial abundance is just one form that abundance can take. Abundance can show up as health, happiness, love, community, success, protection or food and shelter. The list of what abundance means for you is personal to you and everyone’s idea of abundance is different.

How Do I Bring Abundance Into My Life?

To bring abundance into your life, you have to first understand how to open your flow. Think of your flow of abundance being like water and your mental state as being like the pipes that bring abundance in and out of your life. Like real water pipes, we want to keep our pipes clean and open for the water coming in, but we also want to to keep the pipes open for the water going out.

What that means is that we want to make it a habit to keep our thoughts positive for the abundance that is on its way to us, but also appreciate the abundance that we have right now and the abundance that moves through our lives.

How Do Spirit Guides Help You Manifest?

Spirit guides are loving spirits who assist, guide, and protect each of us. When we develop a connection to our guides, communicating with them and paying attention to the messages and gifts that they send our way, we solidify our relationship with them and then can receive the direction that they give us.

Spirit guides can open doors to abundant outcomes, lead us to our abundance, and guide us to opportunities but that doesn’t mean that you have to sit around and wait for it to happen. The process of manifesting is a team project.

How Do You Increase Financial Abundance With Your Guides?

One of my favorite ways of working with my guides to increase abundance is to create a spirit guide abundance altar. It’s simple to do and can be done with things that you probably have around the house.

What you’ll need for a Spirit Guide Abundance Altar

  • Small table top or shelf

  • Green or gold cloth

  • Figurine or framed photo of an abundance goddess/god/spirit

  • Small yellow, green, or white candle in a holder

  • Basil or marigold plant or fresh yellow flowers in water

  • Small bowl or cauldron with coins

On your small table or shelf, place the cloth (a small handkerchief works great for this) and arrange the figurine or framed photo (you can print one from your computer or use a tarot card of abundance such as the Queen or King of Pentacles to represent your abundance spirit guide).

Place the candle in its holder, plant (or flowers), and small bowl or cauldron with coins in it around the image in a eye-pleasing way.

Light the candle every Friday and let it burn while you are awake and at home. When you go to sleep or leave the house, snuff out the candle and relight it when you return.

If you have particular wishes, you can speak them as you light the candle or write them out as a petition on paper and place them in the money bowl.

How Can Your Guides Help You Release Abundance Blocks?

If you feel blocked around money, I recommend a simple spell using a cleansing bath.

For a simple cleansing bath, add the following to your bathwater:

Step into the bath in a mindful way. Focus, meditate, visualize, or speak out loud. Ask your spirit guide to assist you in your wishes to remove any blocks you may be holding around prosperity and money.

When you come out of the bath, dry yourself off with a clean towel and dress yourself in clean clothing.

For extra-stubborn cases where your money luck is crossed up, do the cleansing bath once a day for three, seven, eleven, or thirteen days.

Your Spirit Guides Want To Help Your Abundance

Your spirit guides love you and want to protect and guide you to your highest and best outcomes and that includes your abundance and prosperity. Invite them to help you and they will bring you exceptional outcomes.

Just Starting to Connect With Your Spirit Guides?

If you are just starting to connect to your guides this may seem a little overwhelming. Check out this great article about meeting your guides for the first time.

8 Ways That Your Spirit Guides Are Sending You Messages

Posted on

Post Type: post

Your Spirit Guides are Sending You Messages

Spirit Guides Are Always Sending Us Messages

Everyone has a council of spirit guides watching over them to protect them, advise them and help them. Your guides are constantly sending you messages of love and healing but most people go through their entire life without ever receiving these messages.

You’re getting these messages too and if you want to get those messages loud and clear, the best thing to do is to wake up and pay attention.

Here are a few of the ways your guides are sending messages to you.

Spirit Guides and Repeating Numbers

One of the most common ways that our spirit guides reach out to us is through sending us numbers. Digital clocks have really become such an amazing tool in this sense because they are all around us. If you are seeing repeating numbers on your digital clock like 11:11, 2:22, 5:55, 1:11 and so on, or you are seeing these repeating numbers elsewhere, such as on license plates, addresses and so on,  it means that your spirit guides are trying to connect with you.

These repeating numbers are something like spirits knocking at our door. The first thing to do when you notice one of them is to reflect on what you were focusing on at the time that you saw it. Your guides have a message for you about that topic. Take a moment to reflect on what was on your mind at that moment and then just try to “listen” to what they have to say about it. If you don’t “hear” anything right away, don’t fret,  your guides may just be knocking on your door to let you know that they are supporting you in whatever it was that you were thinking about.

When I say listen to what your guides have to say, I don’t mean you’re actually going to hear a voice. It’s more like hearing an internal voice. If I were to describe what this feels like is that it does FEEL like a little voice inside and at first glance, you may feel that you’re talking to yourself, but if you start to pay close attention, that other voice doesn’t feel like it’s coming exactly from you. Sometimes it will contradict what you’re thinking or feeling and, if you have been working with high vibration guides, it will always bring a positive message of hope and empowerment. So, for example, if you’re worried about your final exams and then you hear yourself say inside “It’s all going to be ok,” you can be sure that that is a message from your guides.

Spirit Guides and Songs, Symbols, Words

Another way that your spirit guides can send you messages is through seeing symbols or hearing songs or seeing words. Without even trying to contact ancestors many people may find that they get messages from their loved ones who have passed on. This can come in the form of seeing words or symbols that have a strong association with that loved one. For example, you might see your grandmother’s first name unexpectedly on a billboard or maybe she was really into red Corvettes and you see a red Corvette when you were thinking about her or you hear the song Little Red Corvette come on the radio. A symbol like this is usually something out of the ordinary that wakes you up and makes you pay attention.

But this doesn’t have to be a symbol or word from an ancestor. Maybe you are wanting to contact the Egyptian god Horus and you go to the coffee house and the barista has an Eye of Horus tattooed on her arm or the song Egyptian Lover comes up on the radio. When you reach out to your guides, open your eyes and ears to see if you’re getting words or symbols that support that connection.

Spirit Guides and Predetermined Symbols

Another way that you can connect to specific guides is through using a predetermined symbol. For example, you may decide that you would like to work with the spirit of the Native American war leader Black Hawk and you may ask him to show you that he is open to working with you by showing you a hawk. Spend the next seven days looking for a hawk symbol. It could be a live hawk in the sky, but it might be seeing someone wearing a Blackhawks team t-shirt or seeing a Studebaker Hawk driving down the street. The point is that you are asking for a specific symbol and then looking to see if you get an answer to that request.  Don’t worry if you don’t get an answer to a specific request like that though. It’s not that a particular spirit is snubbing you, it may be that they are just not the best spirit for the job and that there is another spirit who wants to work with you and can be more effective.

Spirit Guides in Your Dreams

Another really powerful way that spirit guides can reach out to us is through our dreams. Before you go to sleep at night, say the intention or prayer that your highest vibration guides reach out to you and that you will remember their messages in the morning. When you wake up, try to remember what happened in your dreams, who visited you, what messages they had to tell you, any symbolic items in the dream and so on. If you’re having a hard time remembering your dreams, it can help to start writing down your dreams in a dream journal first thing when you wake up in the morning. Even if you don’t remember a lot at first, just write down anything you remember. As you start doing this, you will remember more and more of your dreams over time. When you write in your journal, take note of who contacted you, what they looked like and so on especially if they are someone unknown to you as that may give you guidance as to who these spirit guides are.

Spirit Guides and Visions

Another way that spirit guides can contact us is through visions – any of the senses can be activated. For example, you might see someone out of the corner of your eye and then, when you look, no one is there. Or you might see someone who resembles your loved one and for a minute you think it’s them. Or you might see shadows or lights. Or you might smell a perfume or a floral scent or the smell of your grandma’s peach pie, or feel a touch on your shoulder or a change in temperature in the room. Any of these visions can be a sign that your spirit guides are around you and reminding you that they are there to help.

Spirit Guides and Other People

Spirit guides can also reach out to you by sending people into your life. You may ask one of your spirit guides for assistance and that assistance may come through a human channel. For example, let’s say you wanted help starting a new business and you asked your guides for help. And then you meet an experienced business person who is happy to share some tricks and tips with you. Or maybe you are feeling intimidated by a situation and you strike up a conversation with someone at the grocery store and without knowing your issue they say “Feel the fear and do it anyway.” These kinds of messages are coming from your guides through the humans around you.

Spirit Guides and Synchronicities

And related to that are another way that our guides can reach out to us – synchronicities. Synchronicities are meaningful coincidences, meaning that something seems to happen coincidentally but actually has a deeper significance. A lot of what we’ve mentioned up until this point can fall under that broader category of synchronicity: the person with the message for you, the symbol you see or that song that you hear and so on, all can be categorized as synchronicities. Synchronicities can also show up in ways that charm us or make us smile. Our spirit guides aren’t humorless twits, they love to surprise and delight us. Small things like thinking, “I wish I had a cupcake” and then finding a cupcake on your desk at work or big things like the perfect job opportunity opening up for you just when you’re most ready to make a change. These are the kind of sweet synchronistic surprises that your spirit guides will bring to you just because they love you.

So, open up your heart, your mind, your eyes and your ears to the messages that your guides want to send you. They are all around you all the time.

How To Meet Your Spirit Guide & Change Your Life For The Better

Posted on

Post Type: post

meet your spirit guides

Who Is Your Spirit Guide?

All of us have a council of guides around us who are there to protect, assist and give us helpful messages to guide our lives to our highest and best. But while you might believe in your spirit guides, you might not know what the best way to reach them or how to receive messages from them.

How to Meet Your Spirit Guide

It’s not hard to meet your spirit guide, all you have to have is the willingness to connect with them. Your guides love you and want to communicate with you, so the more you practice one or more of these techniques the easier it will be to connect to them.

Check out this episode of my Magic and the Law of Attraction podcast to learn the myriad forms that your spirit guide can take.

Using Meditation to Meet Your Spirit Guide

One of the best ways to meet your spirit guide is to practice meditation. Whether you practice a silent meditation or use a special guided meditation (like the free spirit guide meditation I have on my website), the first thing to do is to ask for your guide to meet with you. Always ask for your own guides and spirits of the highest vibration to come forward. An example of what you might want to say before your meditation could be:

“I gather my spirit guides around me. Guides of the highest vibration who love and protect me. I invite one of my guides to meet with me and to give me useful, clear, and helpful messages.”

Once you have said that, you can begin your meditation and envision or meet with your guide. See what messages you get. Whether you get images, words, or feelings, listen to them and trust that you are meeting with a spirit guide who can offer you assistance.

Using Automatic Writing to Meet With Your Spirit Guide

Another way to get to know your spirit guide is to use automatic writing. To begin communicating with your guides, get a notebook or journal and two pens or pencils of different colors. Begin by writing your questions in one color and then switch pens and write the answers from your guide. Write out the answers that you get, the first thing that comes into your head. You may question whether the words are coming from you, but just go with it and keep writing, alternating between the two different colors of pen. If you push through your doubts, you will find that your guides will give you some important messages.

Looking for Repeating Numbers and Synchronicities

A final way to connect with your guides to help change your life for the better is to pay attention to synchronicities such as repeating numbers. Synchronicities are seemingly random coincidences that have meaning and significance. Things like finding coins or feathers on the street can be a sign of your guide sending you messages of abundance and security.

When you look at a clock and see a repeating number such as 11:11 or 2:22, reflect on what you were thinking about when you saw the number. Chances are that your guides are sending you a message of hope about that very topic.

Take a listen to this episode of my Magic and the Law of Attraction podcast to learn many more ways that you can encounter your spirit guide.

Your Spirit Guide Has Messages for You

Whichever way you choose to meet with your guides, know that they love you, they care for you, and they have important messages for you that can give you good guidance to make your life the very best. Take the time to connect with your guides and you will start to feel the power of your spiritual team that stands beside you.

What Does It Mean When You See 11:11?

Posted on

Post Type: post

Your Spirit Guides Have a Message for You!

Have you been noticing repeating numbers on license plates on cars, the clock on your phone or addresses on the street? If so, something magical is happening for you. Your spirit guides are trying to send you a message.

Spirit Guide Messages Come to Us Through Repeating Numbers.

One of the most common ways that our spirit guides reach out to us is through sending us numbers. Digital clocks, like the one on your phone, have really become an amazing tool in this sense because they are something that you may look at several times a day. Yes, you might just see a repeating number on your phone like 11:11, 2:22, 5:55, or 1:11 by chance, but if you notice it happening more often than usual, it means that your spirit guides are trying to connect with you.

What Do the Messages Mean?

I think of these as being something like spirits knocking at our door. The first thing I do when I notice one of these repeating numbers is to recall what I was focusing on at the time that I saw it. Was I daydreaming in a positive way about the future or was I worrying about something? Was I having a good memory from the past or was my mind on just what was right in front of me? Whatever I was thinking about, I know that it’s a topic that my guides want me to pay attention to.

How Do I Know What My Spirit Guides Are Trying to Say?

I have been working for a long time on building communication with my guides, so they usually tell me right then and there what they need me to know, “Yes, you’re going to be ok,” “Let it go,” “Do it,” or whatever.  If you’re just starting to build a connection with your guides and you see a repeating number, take a moment to reflect on what was on your mind at the moment you saw the number and then just try to “listen” to what they have to say about it. What they say to you won’t be hearing in the “I’m hearing voices” sense. It will be more like “hearing” with your minds “ear,” similar to seeing with your mind’s eye. If you don’t “hear” anything right away, don’t fret. Your guides may just be knocking on your door to let you know that they are supporting you in whatever it was that you were thinking about.

What Do the Numbers Mean?

The actual number that you see repeating has some important meaning too. If you study some basic numerology, you can interpret the numbers that come up and it will shed some light on the message that your guides have for you. For example, if you were thinking about someone that you were interested in and you saw 2:22 on the clock, 222 indicates partnership and is a message from your guides that a serious relationship could blossom between you and that other person. Don’t worry if you’re not an expert in numerology though, below is a handy chart for understanding the messages behind different repeating numbers.

What Does 1:11 or 111 Mean?

Beginnings, Newness, Focused Concentration, Independence, Originality, Ambition, Will

What Does 2:22 or 222 Mean?

Duality, Division, Choice, Cooperation, Harmony, Support, Diplomacy, Patience, Partnership

What Does 3:33 or 333 Mean?

Trinity, Union of Divine plus Human, Expression, Creativity, Optimism, Enthusiasm

What Does 4:44 or 444 Mean?

Practicality, Orderliness, Patience, Logic, Hard­ Work, Loyalty, Building, Responsibility

What Does 5:55 or 555 Mean?

Adventure, Change, Freedom, Exploration, Variety, Sensuality, Curiosity, Travel, Imagination

What Does 6:06 or 666 Mean?

Harmony, Beauty, Nurturing, Responsibility, Understanding, Healing, Duty, Comfort, Service

What Does 7:07 or 777 Mean?

Philosophy, Wisdom, Invention, Contemplation, Introspection, Spirituality, Faith, Esotericism

What Does 8:08 or 888 Mean?

Achievement, Strength, Self­ Discipline, Power, Success, Authority, Manifestation

What Does 9:09 or 999 Mean?

Endings, Completion, Culmination, Time for Next Steps, Change, Graduation, Evolution

What Does 000 Mean?

Limitlessness, Unity, Nothingness, Truth, Divine Protection, Possibility, Space

What Does 11:11 or 1111 Mean?

Master Number, Prophecy, Intuition, Enlightenment, Adaptability, Sensitivity, Awareness

What Should I Do When I Get a Message From My Guides?

The next time you start to see repeating numbers over and over again, take a beat to listen to what message your spirit guides have for you. The messages from our guides are always helpful, protective and positive. Whether the message comes through loud and clear or is a mysterious whisper, be sure to thank your guides for their help and love. The more you acknowledge them, thank them and pay attention, the stronger your communication with your guides will be.

10 Different Spirit Guides Who May Be Trying to Connect With You

Posted on

spirit guides are trying to contact you

Do You Want to Know Who Your Spirit Guides Are?

What is a spirit guide? Spirit guides are positive entities who do not have a physical form and who connect with us to protect, teach and enlighten us. Each of us has a group of spirit guides that surround us called our Guide Council. Do you want to know who is in your council of guides? With some simple reflection, you can determine who your guides are.

gods and goddesses as spirit guides

There Are a Lot of Different Types of Spirit Guides

Gods and goddesses are probably the spirit guides most people recognize. Whether it’s the Judeo-Christian God, the Christian Holy Spirit, the Egyptian goddess Hathor, the Norse god Odin, the Hindu goddess Lakshmi or the Orisha Yemoja, these deities are channels that people associate with divine energy. It’s natural that if they are who you connect with consciously, that you pray or put your thoughts or energies in their direction, that you are establishing a channel for them to reach out to you. When we reach out to them, we are more likely to hear back from them. Spirits that are “famous” like gods and goddesses are easier for us to think about because we know them through the many books, myths, and legends written about them. Do you have a god or goddess in your Guide Council? If you are reaching out to a deity on a regular basis or feel drawn to one, then the answer is yes.

Angels Can Also Be in Our Spirit Guide Council

Contact with angels has been documented for millennia and are another very well-known form that spirit guides can take. Angels can show up as personal guardian angels or archangels, such as Archangel Michael, Gabriel or Raphael. Muses are also angelic beings who can inspire us and give us messages of creativity. These divine messengers appear often in the Bible and Quran. Angelic contact is documented in even earlier literature such as Persian, Babylonian and Sumerian texts that were written before the Old Testament. Do you feel connected to angels or a specific angel in particular? Then they are definitely a part of your Guide Council.

Check Out My Podcast Episode: How Do I Connect to My Spirit Guides? Part 1

Working with the Ascended Masters as spirit guides

Another form that spirit guides can take are a group we call the Ascended Masters. The Ascended Masters are beings who were once in human form but have gone up or ascended to divine status. Prime examples of Ascended Masters can be saints, Jesus, Buddha, Old Testament biblical figures, heroes in Greek mythology who became gods, Indian mahatmas, and so on. Having once been alive, the Ascended Masters understand the human physical experience and so can teach us about the connection between the spiritual world and the material world. If you are wanting mastery in a certain area of your life and are looking for a teacher in the spirit realm, then an Ascended Master will probably make an appearance in your Guide Council.

ancestors can also be our spirit guides

Ancestors Can Also Be in Your Spirit Guide Council

Another category of spirit guides can be found directly in your family tree. Your personal ancestors, spirits of people who are related to you but who have passed on, will often show up in your Guide Council. These can be the spirits of people who knew you during your lifetime or the spirits of ancestors who died long before you were born. You don’t have to have known them or even know their names to reach out to them and connect to them as guides. Do you have special relatives that you know of or that you have heard were loving toward their family? Then you can count on them being in your Guide Council, watching over you and helping you from the spirit realm.

Other People Can Also Be Your Spirit Guides

Another type of spirit guide that can show up in your council can be real people who are not Ascended Masters and who are not related to you. These can be famous people, of course, but they can also be helpful spirits of everyday people who are suited to the type of work or message that you are asking to receive. Yes, you can reach out and connect to famous people who have passed but you can also pose questions and get answers from helpful spirits who are not well-known too.

pets can also be spirit guides

Pets Can Also Be in Your Spirit Guide Council

Another type of spirit guide can be animals. These are most likely to be your beloved pets who have passed on, but, sometimes they show up as spirit animals. Pets who you had a close bond with when they were in physical form are the most likely ones to reach out to you. When you connect with them, you’ll be connecting to the spirit and personality of your beloved pet. It is also possible to connect to a single animal spirit that you didn’t know in life, but this is a little less common. Do you think you see or hear your pet in the room? That’s their spirit watching over you.

Spirit Animals Are Another Form That Guides Can Take

Spirit animals are different than the particular spirit of one pet. Spirit animals are not any one particular animal, but the Mother spirit of the animal tribe. They generally reach out to us through the symbolic archetype of that species or multiple members of the same species. If a spirit animal is trying to connect with you, you will see that animal over and over again, either seeing the animal or images of the animal. With a spirit animal, you’re getting a connection with the essence of that animal species and not necessarily the personality of one particular animal.

nature spirits can also be our spirit guides

Nature Spirits Can Also Reach Out to Us

In almost every culture, we find stories of nature spirits. They can be beings like fairies, sprites, gnomes, Scandinavian tomte, Native American weather spirits, Greek nymphs and dryads, the Celtic green man, the devas, djinn, tree spirits, rock spirits or anything connected to a natural element. Sometimes, these spirits take the forms of gods or goddesses, but usually, they have a more abstract energy rather than a human form. So, if you are drawn to nature and sense spirits when you are outdoors and in natural environments, it is probably the nature spirits reaching out to you.

Mythological Beings in Your Spirit Guide Council

Dragons, mermaids, fauns, unicorns, phoenixes, and other mythological beings are archetypes that have definite spirit energy. If you connect deeply to one or more of these archetypes, then they are definitely in your Guide Council. They will reach out to you through imagery that you see repeatedly. If you’re really connected to them, you may sense them around you and receive messages from them as well.

Light Beings Can Also Be Among Your Spirit Guides

Light beings are formless spirits and can be seen around you as balls of light, shimmers, glowing bubbles or may not be visible entities at all. These are the spirit guides that you can see in spirit photos or you may catch a glimpse of them out of the corner of your eye. Sometimes, you may not see them at all. People sometimes call these guides “my higher self,” “my inner wisdom,” or “my intuition.” They are spirits who don’t take on any particular material form and are experienced in a more abstract way.

Who Is in Your Spirit Guide Council?

Unless you’re the rare exception, you’re probably not going to be attracted to all these forms of spirit guides. You’ll intuitively know which ones you are attracted to, which ones you connect with and which ones you don’t. Just honor that. It’s kind of like making friends; you’re not going to be friends with everyone, so just listen to the call inside and if you feel attracted to a certain type of spirit guide, then welcome the contact and connection from them.
