“Connecting to spirit guides was one of the most life changing things for me,” said Sharon Wesline, a Certified Reiki Practitioner, Crystal Healer, Integrated Energy Practitioner and Intuitive, based in New York.
For Sharon, the book Ask Your Guides by Sonia Choquette started it all.
She found Sonia’s book at the beginning of her healing journey. Sharon had just gotten out of a 10-year abusive relationship and both her parents had just passed away.
As she was searching for answers on Amazon, Ask Your Guides jumped out at her. It is now a book that she recommends to all of her clients at the beginning of their spiritual discovery process.
“Not only does the book give you a great overview of the different types of guides, it also gets you thinking differently about never being alone,” she says.
Sharon explains that your guides leave you messages all of the time. However, they are in a realm of higher vibration, so it takes a little practice to understand them.
“Guides don’t always sit down and have a verbal conversation with you,” she explains. “Sometimes they give you an image in your mind. Or when you have an idea that helps you solve a problem, it most likely is one of your guides helping you.”
“When I was starting my business, for instance, I wondered how I would be able to pay for a new computer and furniture for my office. While I was brushing my teeth one morning, I had the idea to get a loan. That was not something I would have thought of on my own,” Sharon explains, “so I knew that it was divine guidance.”
You may have had similar experiences with bizarre ideas flying into your conscious. Often those little flickers of magical mojo are insights from your guides. Of course, it’s not always easy to differentiate between coincidences and divine guidance. Each person needs to determine their own method for receiving messages, but once you get that down, the sky is literally the limit!
Here are Sharon’s 6 tips to communicate with your guides
1 – Keep A Journal
To find your best method of communication, keep a journal of how and when you receive messages. In time, you will see patterns.
2 – Spend time in nature
Spending time walking or running in nature allows your mind to be open to messages.
3 – Quiet your mind
Quieting the mental chatter takes patience and practice. Try tasks that you can do on autopilot such as driving, washing the dishes or coloring. When you silence the mental chit chat, your guides can finally be heard.
4 – Be open to messages
Signs are everywhere from social media posts to casual conversations with people. Just be open to receiving messages and don’t dismiss them as coincidences. Trusting yourself and your intuition is key.
5 – Ask for help
Guides have a non-interference policy, so you need to ask them for help. Start small by asking for little favors like a better parking spot or a short line at the store.
6 – Look for angel numbers
Angel numbers are sequences of numbers that carry divine guidance by referring to specific vibrational meanings. Some examples are 111, 222 and 333. Often, when our guides want to grab our attention they will send angel numbers which will appear again and again.
Of course, connecting with your guides doesn’t happen over night. Like anything new, it takes practice and persistence. Have faith and be patient.
