8 Ways To Connect With Your Spirit Guides and Angels

 8 Ways To Connect With Spirit Guides and Angels

Have you ever heard of that famous saying, "we're born alone, we live alone, we die alone"? Well let me tell you that it is absolutely false! You are not at all alone!

When we incarnate into the earth plane we do so with a team of spirit guides standing by on the other side there to help us out on our life path and achieve our missions here on earth. We are never alone.

Everything is energy and we are all of us interconnected. All life, whether incarnate or discarnate, is connected with each other.  Even if you may sometimes feel like you're alone, that your thoughts don't matter, or that you don't matter, that's not true!

You may think that way because you're not yet able to see or feel your personal team of guides or haven't yet learned how to connect with the amazing infinite field of source energy that permeates everything. When you learn how, everything changes! Take it from me, I've been there.

When you start connecting with your spirit guides and work through all your self doubt, you walk away with a certain feeling of peace and certainty knowing that help is there whenever you wish.

The feeling of knowing that spirit guides, angels, ascended masters, and all of that good stuff is actually real, is just priceless.

When you start connecting with your spirit guides and work through all your self doubt, you walk away with a certain feeling of peace and certainty knowing that help is there whenever you wish.

Why We All Have Spirit Guides

You see, we are not first and foremost our biological bodies, that's just your vessel. It contains the REAL you, your SOUL. On this earth plane, we are all really souls having a human experience not the other way around!

The best way I can describe it to you is that life is like an intensely realistic virtual reality RPG game, sort of like the movie Avatar, in a sense. Before you incarnate you review what soul lessons you are to learn in this lifetime and come up with a set of agreements as to what challenges and karmic events you will face along the way and who your companions will be on this journey.

You're given a mission, a life task or quest, if you will, that you are meant to complete while immersed in the simulation that is 3D life. This could be anything, really. It could be caring for animals, working on self-expression, creating abundance which you then use to help others, or life lessons and challenges you didn't quite manage to master the last time around.

This post is not about discovering your life purpose, we'll get into that in a later post. The point is, your guides agree to help you with this mission and all the challenges you face while you're on earth.


On this earth plane, we are all really souls having a human experience not the other way around!

Problem is, when you incarnate you get a memory wipe. It's like playing that RPG game without any walkthrough, tutorials, or any sense of what the story quest even is. You're supposed to discover that for yourself.

Not to mention that your own higher self and spirit guides are having a really crappy time trying to figure out how to get through to you with those much needed help and instructions when the connection is laggy as shit and the controller doesn't really work!

It's almost like when you're playing a game and you press walk forward and the avatar decides to talk a nap instead. That would be such a frustrating game right?

Well, for your guides, that's how difficult it tends to be for a lot of people. The connection between you and your guides, your energy health and innate intuitive capabilities, might be underdeveloped or have been actively suppressed in your upbringing.

How are you supposed to get that vital guidance and assistance you may sometimes need in your life when the connection is crappy and you don't know how to ask for it? Imagine how much more awesome it would be to be able to just tune in and ask them:  "Am I doing the right thing here? Which decision is correct?" and then get an intuitive hit that tells you what you most need to know about it.

Developing your intuition and energy health is of such vital importance here because it restores the connection between you and your guides! That's like suddenly going from dial-up internet with really really slow downloads to super fast internet with instantaneous downloads.

Wouldn't you like to see, hear, feel, or know who your guides are, how they're here to help you? Don't you wanna restore that bridge between your own mind and the spirit realm so that you can receive intuitive downloads and guided information whenever you need?

You do?! Awesome, because I'm about to explain to you exactly how to do that!

1. Keep Your Chakras Clear

 8 Ways To Connect With Spirit Guides and Angels

Notice how I didn't start off by saying that you should open your third eye. Yes, you should open up your third eye as it is vital for intuition and psychic impressions. However, you shouldn't ONLY work on your third eye.

For best results, you need to keep your whole energy system clean and working in tip top shape. Remember what I said about restoring that connection with the spirit ream? Making sure your whole energy system is clean and clear is how you do it.

There are so many books about how to keep your chakras clear and there are so many ways you can do that. There are ways to keep your chakras clean through yoga, exercises, visualisations, audio frequencies, aromatherapy, food, etc. If you want to really dig deep into the chakras I recommend the book Wheels of Life by Anodea Judith

I'm going to share with you my utmost favourite way of clearing out all my energetic gunk and staying shiny. It's so simple to do and it feels great.

All you have to do is:

  1. While you're under the shower close your eyes and visualise the water turning into a shower of pure crystalline white light.

  2. Feel it go right through you, and washing away all the residue from your day.

  3. Visualise the water change colour to red and feel the vibrant red energy go into your body and washing away any gunk in your root chakra. You can either just let the red light do its work or imagine it cleaning out your root chakra.

  4. Do the same process for your sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye, and crown chakras. To do this, the water should go orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet, respectively.

That's it! Just make sure to do your chakra energy shower every day and spend extra time on any areas that you intuitively feel needs more work or any chakras associated with areas of life you're having trouble with. Supplement this process with aromatherapy, crystals, or whatever you feel comfortable with.

Keeping my chakras clean was the first step on my spiritual journey and was really vital in helping me go from a blocked to a clear channel for spirit guides and angels. 


Keeping your chakras clean is vital in helping me you from a blocked to a clear channel for spirit guides and angels. 

2. Start A Daily Meditation Practice

Prayer is like talking to the universe and meditation is like listening. It not only helps to get you into a receptive and intuitively open state of mind, but it also raises your vibration. When you meditate, even if it's just 10 minutes a day, you start to get into the habit of letting go of all the thoughts the clutter your mind and simply being.

In that quiet space is where you connect with your higher self and where you can begin to connect to Spirit. 

Start off by simply finding a meditation track you like, I prefer 432hz or 528hz, or really any meditation music that you connect to on a deep level, and just listen to it for at least 10-15 minutes.

If you're not in the habit of meditating like this just listen to the track and just be. Get used to the silence and be comfortable. Notice any thoughts, feelings, or inspiration, or guidance that come into your mind during this time.

Once you've done that a few times and you're comfortable with it. there's a simple exercise you can do to raise your vibration and it's called sitting in the power. It's actually a fundamental practice of psychic development and mediumship.

Pick a time every day, put on your meditation track, and instead of simply listening, this time you'll do a visualisation:

  1. Take a deep breath and imagine white light flowing into your body. As you do so feel it cleansing every single cell.

  2. Hold your breath for a few seconds and say to yourself, in your mind, "be still, be still, be still"

  3. Exhale and let it all go as you do so.

  4. Repeat this process three times or as many times as you need.

  5. Then, feel a golden ball of light expanding in your heart space. See and feel a golden cord going down from your heart, through the soles of your feet, and down into the earth. Send your golden power cord directly into the earth's core.

  6. Now, bring yourself back up to your heart space and imagine that golden ball of light expanding. It encompasses your entire aura.

  7. Expand that ball of light even further on each in breath. Make it as big as you can. As big as your home, as big as your town, your state, country, and as big as the entire world. Every time you expand that light feel yourself connecting to all life within that ball of light.

  8. Now, I want you to make that ball of light even bigger, connect to all life energy in the solar system, in the sun, in the galaxy, and keep expanding it until you feel yourself connect with a vast and endless energy of love. This is the fabric of all things, this is the source field.

  9. Just sit in that space for as long as you can.

When you connect to source energy like that, every day, you're working on elevating your conciousness. This is important because angels and spirit guides vibrate and at much faster level than incarnate humans. The more you familarise yourself with that energy of love, the easier it will be to feel them around you.

Not only that but this should sky-rocket your psychic development and you will soon be able to see, hear, feel, or just know when they're around and be able to interact with them using your clairs. 


Prayer is like talking to the universe and meditation is like listening. In that quiet space is where you connect with your higher self and where you can begin to connect to Spirit. 

3. Invite Them to Introduce Themselves to You

The way to meet your spirit guides is basically to just ask them to show themselves to you, either through a meditation exercise or just asking them and paying attention to your feelings and environmental cues.

Now, here's the fun part. A meditation exercise that you can use to meet your guides!

  1. Follow steps 1-6 from the sitting in the power meditation in the previous section.

  2. Now, imagine that you're standing in a green field, forest clearing, by the sea, or any place that you feel resonates with your soul.

  3. In the centre of this place is a door. I want you to say "Angels and spirit guides, I invite you to please come closer. Please show yourselves to me"

  4. The door opens and from it appears a figure bathed in light.

  5. Notice everything you can about the figure. Is it male or female? An angel, departed loved one, deity, or someone from a past life perhaps?

  6. Ask them to come closer and ask them to give you a name, then wait for any type of response.

  7. Ask your angel or spirit guide what they're here to help you with. How are they meant to help you along your path?

  8. Take as long as you need and when you're ready, thank them, watch them go back through the door, and open your eyes.

Did you try it out? Were you able to communicate to your guides?

 Connect To Your Guides Meditation

Another thing you can try is to use the same invocation but while you're awake, not while meditating.

Still make sure that you're feeling relaxed and happy, not agitated or worried, and say "Angels and spirit guides, I invite you to please come closer. Please show yourselves to me".

This time, watch out for any images, thoughts, and feelings you may get.

I work a lot with the angelic realm and when I do this I tend to feel an overwhelming sense of love. That's how you know your angels are there.

You may also feel a phantom touch, like a reassuring hand on your shoulder. If you've been sitting in the power and clearing your energy regularly, you may see also their form in your mind's eye, hear words pop into your head, or perhaps feel them. 

Remember that Spirit often communicates in very subtle ways. The quality of the communication tends to be very subtle. It could just be a song that plays on the radio or a repeating number sequence, or simply as a strong gut feeling.

In terms of the clairs, it won't be a loud booming voice, for example but it'll sound like your own voice. For me it feels like it's coming from my crown chakra when it's Spirit talking and when it's my own thoughts it comes from a place lower inside my brain.

Keep practising and keep a pen and paper handy because sometimes after you've done this they will send you information, psychic downloads, that are relevant to your life.

4. Ask for a Sign

If steps 1 to 3 were difficult for you or you want to try all the ways to connect to your guides, then why not just ask for a sign?

I love doing this because I almost always get a sign and it just feels so reassuring! Even psychics are not 'always on' and during those down times when we're just going about daily life, it can be so amazing to see something and immediately recognise it as a sign or omen sent from your guides!

So how does this work? Just ask! But ask for something specific, that works the best in my experience. You can preface your request with almost anything you want confirmation on: "if you're there then give me a sign" or "if this is the right decision, give me a sign" or even "if I've gotten the message right, please confirm with a sign". Then, you simply keep your eyes peeled for the next few days.

So what kind of sign do you ask for? I've tried a lot of different ways:

  • Ask for a number: I've asked for a specific number, "if I'm getting this right, show me the number 7", and the next day I was flooding with 7s everywhere: on my phone, on car number plates, on receipts. It was almost funny. I just laughed and said "ok guys, I get it".

  • Ask to see a specific image: I've also tried by asking them to show me a butterfly. Within 2 days I saw 2 butterflies, and a further 2 as images on my computer while browsing random websites. One of them had nothing to do with nature it was just a site explaining how to do something in Photoshop! I've also asked to see a rose in the past and you guessed it, saw roses everywhere the next day.

  • Ask for a dream visitation: I've only ever done this once but I once asked them, in a state of confusion and vulnerability, to confirm it's all real by visiting me in my dreams. That night I was dreaming something completely random and then suddenly, the dream just stopped and I saw what I recognised as one of my guides with a recognisable message for me.

  • Ask them to show you something you would recognise: I asked them to do this one time, not specifying what they should show me, and that night I woke up in the middle of the night and saw two glowing blue sceptres, that were crossed, floating mid air. I still don't really know what exactly that means but I recognise it as a sign.


Remember that Spirit often communicates in very subtle ways. It could just be a song that plays on the radio or a repeating number sequence, or simply as a strong gut feeling.

5. Try automatic writing

For me, this was the single most useful thing I've tried, besides for meditation, to speak with my guides! Automatic writing helps you get in touch with the goings on of your own subconscious and really helps you to open a channel of communication between you and your higher self, angels, or spirit guides.

Here's how it works:

  1. First quiet your mind and make sure that your mind is in a completely calm and blank state. Try a short visualisation or anything you need to do to just be calm and be still.

  2. Now, open your notes app on your phone or computer or grab a pen and paper.

  3. If you have a specific question then mentally ask your question. If not then skip this step.

  4. Good, now just write down the very first thoughts that come in to your mind.

That's it! At first it might be gibberish or useless nonsense coming from your own mind but keep at it and what you're notice is that you start addressing yourself in the second person. You'll start writing answers to your questions that if followed, work! You give yourself accurate insights.

For example, there was a time when I was having skin problems and I was at my wits end. I opened up notepad on my computer and tried automatic writing and I wrote down avoid sugar and eat low glycemic foods. I was like, huh? Then I Googled it, followed that advice, and things got better for me.

You might even start 'hearing' thoughts and phrases in your mind that have a different subtle quality to your normal thoughts. Get used to this process and learn to identify when it's your guides speaking to you.

Automatic writing is not just a great tool for asking questions and seeking guidance for your life. You can even interview your guides. Ask them who they are, what they're helping you with, or ask them for information about a topic. Write down all the words that enter your mind. Before long, you'll be channelling information from the world of Spirit.

This is actually how I first began channelling and it's such a versatile tool not only for speaking to your guides but also just generally getting information for yourself and others. Try and and let me know your experiences!


Automatic writing helps you get in touch with the goings on of your own subconscious and really helps you to open a channel of communication between you and your higher self, angels, or spirit guides.

6. Use Tarot or Oracle Cards

A lot of psychic development courses don't really encourage the use of tools. While I definitely feel that you need to exercise your psychic muscles without using tools on the regular, I'm 100% pro tools! But, only as long as you don't use them as a crutch and keep working on your daily meditation exercises and other things you may be doing to connect with Spirit.

So why oracle and tarot cards? Well, they're basically designed to tap into universal archetypes. Especially in the case of tarot, every single card has such deep symbolism and meaning. Asking for number signs are great but when you pull a card, or three, or five, you can get so much rich information out of it.

All you have to do is ask the questions "Spirit team, what do I need to know right now?" and interpret the message in the cards according to both the traditional interpretation as well as your own intuitive impressions.

Watch out for any intuitive hits you get in the form of images, thoughts, feelings, or a sense of knowingness when you look at the cards.

Oracle decks are brilliant too, because they don't really follow a common, predefined, system like tarot does. The creators of various oracle decks create the deck with the intention of helping card readers connect with various energies: angels, mermaids, faeries, trees, animals, etc.

If you just want a quick message from your spirit guides, just buy an oracle deck that you resonate with and with an open mind and heart, draw a card. 


Watch out for any intuitive hits you get in the form of images, thoughts, feelings, or a sense of knowingness when you look at your tarot or oracle cards.

7. Use a Pendulum

Tarot and oracle cards are great for long-form answers. They don't work so well for simple yes or no, closed questions.

If you want a direct yes or no style of answer from your guides then consider using a pendulum instead. When you do so, as always, do a little exercise to get into a calm and quiet state of mind first and sit straight up, grasping the top bead between your thumb and forefinger.

The first time you use a pendulum you need to program it to establish signals for each type of answer. Decide what you want the pendulum to do for a yes, no, or maybe answer. I use the following for my pendulum:

  • Clockwise for yes

  • Back and forth for no

  • Diagonal for maybe

You may choose to use the same, if you wish, or ask the pendulum to show you what each answer looks like. Its your choice. Set the intention for each answer and ask the pendulum to demonstrate yes, no, and maybe, respectively.

Okay, you're ready to begin.

Before you start invite your guides to come closer and ask for the answers to come from your higher self and your guides, not your conscious mind. Make sure that your mind is quiet! Because if it's not then the answers will not accurately reflect Spirit and will reflect your own conscious mind instead.

Next, before you ask your guides your question, first ask:

  • May I ask about this?

  • Can I ask about this?

  • Should I ask about this?

Only proceed if you get a yes answer! Don't skip this guys, it's very important to obtain permission for the question you're asking.

Now that that's out of the way ask your guides your question! It could be anything really. For example:

  • Am I making the right decision?

  • Is this correct?

  • Should I do this?

As always, pay attention to your thoughts and feelings as well as any images, words, or a sense of knowing. These intuitive downloads can help you enrich the information you get from the pendulum.

8. Keep a Spiritual Journal

When it comes to spirit guides, I didn't start off connecting with them daily and it wasn't easy in the beginning. As with everything, it takes time and practice. You need to get familiar with their energy and used to their presence. To aid you in this process, definitely keep a spiritual journal.

In your journal write down:

  • Your meditation experiences

  • Automatic writing sessions

  • Tarot or oracle readings

  • Any significant dreams

  • Signs you received

  • Intuitive impressions you received

This gets you into the habit of doing this regularly and you can really track your progress. You can also go back and read what you've written and verify it against what actually happened. This will build confidence and help you trust your own inner wisdom and the wisdom you receive from your guides.

So, what are your experiences in connecting with your angels and spirit guides?
