Spirit guides are a big topic in psychic reading. Everyone has them, but do you know who yours are? Have you ever had a conversation with yours?
Everyone has spirit guides to help them with life’s challenges. If you want to meet yours, a psychic medium can establish the connection.
What Are Spirit Guides?
Spirit guides are aptly named. Spirits are ethereal beings that come in many forms. Some spirits grow fond of humans and decide to spend a part of their eternity helping us. All people have spirit guides, and most of us have more than one.
The most common spirit guides people have is their ancestors. The spirits of your family lineage want you to succeed, and they are often easy to contact.
Angels are another common spirit guide. Angels exist as a contact point between the divine realm and our realm. While it’s common to see them in their common depiction as winged people, they also commonly appear to people in their original biblical description. So if you see a big, otherworldly wheel of eyes and wings, fear not: that’s an angel.
It’s also very common to have an animal spirit as a guide. A lot of people confuse their animal spirit guides with the concept of a “spirit animal.” A spirit animal is deeply rooted in First Nations indigenous religion and culture. Unless you grew up in a Native American tribe, you do not have a spirit animal. You can, however, have animal spirit guides. Animal spirit guides are quite common.
How Mediums Make Contact
The ability to speak to spirits is a fairly common psychic gift. In fact, spirits frequently make contact with non-psychic people. However, what makes mediums special is their ability to choose which spirit they wish to contact.
Their gift is kind of like having a cell phone, everyone can make calls with it, but not everyone has the right phone number. Mediums can find the number to make the call.
How they make contact is up to the medium. Some use tools like a spirit board. Others have the gift of clairaudience and can hear the voices of spirits speak directly to them. Some mediums also are tarot readers. “Medium” only describes their specific skill, but there’s flexibility in how they do it.
How Mediums Establish a Spirit Guide Connection
Once they’ve made contact with one of your spirit guides, you can start to ask the spirit guide questions. Be aware: most people have multiple spirit guides, but most mediums can only talk to you and one spirit at a time.
There’s no spooky reason for this, it’s just hard. Imagine you’re trying to facilitate a conversation between two people using a phone. It’s a bit tough, but doable. Trying to talk to more than one spirit at a time is like trying to facilitate a conversation between one person and the other end on speaker phone. It’s hard to get a clear answer when spirits are talking over each other.
So when you first talk to the medium, you might want to start asking about the spirits surrounding you. They can tell you roughly how many spirits are around you, and who/what they are. Then you can select a specific guide to talk to.
Again, since it’s hard to speak to more than one guide at a time, don’t be afraid to go back. You may feel like you want to talk to them all at once, but spirits prefer you speak to them one at a time.
Near the end of your session, feel free to ask your medium how this spirit makes contact.
Remember! Spirits have feelings too, they want to see that you care about them and listen to them. If you don’t listen to their advice, they might get annoyed with you. Some start getting sassy, and others will stop talking to you if they think you won’t listen.
However, if you listen to the spirit guides, they tend to talk to you more. Also be aware: unkind thoughts towards yourself or others can be distressing to your spirit guides. They love you, and find it rather upsetting to hear unkind words about their loved one.
