Some of my most impactfully spiritual moments have been when interacting with my spirit guides. It feels magical and divine at first, and then it shifts to overwhelming a natural feeling of comfort and love. But, if there’s one thing I knew before I started my journey of meeting my spirit guides, is that sometimes they choose to present themselves in ways you wouldn’t expect – or, that they don’t always appear when you want.
But, if you’re looking to learn how to meet your spirit guides, I’ve got some tips that may help out.
The first is to figure out what your strength is.
Are you a vivid dreamer? I’ve always been. So I aimed to get myself into a deep, relaxing sleep where I could meet them. Those dreams have been the most vivid and memorable of my life. But maybe your strength is deep meditation, writing, or channeling music and song. Maybe it’s tarot or working with a pendulum. Play into what you’re already good at, and attempt to meet your guides that way.
Secondly, know they might only show up in extreme cases.
My guides only show up when I desperately need guidance, or when I’m in a really emotionally rough space. Other than that, I don’t “see” them very often. I can channel them through writing whenever I want, but generally, their advice and message are the same. Trust that you are smart and that you know what’s right even without their guidance. You have everything you need within you. That being said, they are always there if you feel like you really need them.
Also, they might be showing up in a way you didn’t expect.
You may be expecting to meet them in a vision, a dream, somewhere you can see them. Unfortunately, that isn’t the only way they show up. And no, I don’t mean angel numbers. They might be communicating through seeing animals, songs repeating when you’re on shuffle through a playlist, things that your friends and family say and do. If you’ve asked them for help or to meet them, they may be meeting you in a way different than you expected, solely because it’s the best way for you to currently process that information.
You can work with crystals too.
My favorites are celestite and blue kyanite. Hands down, meditating and sleeping with these crystals has caused the strongest result.
✨ Best crystals for spirit guide connection ✨
Selenite: cleanses and creates a pure channel of light for easy and clear communication
Celestite: connects to angels, spirit guides, and higher realms
Blue kyanite: POWERFUL connector to higher realms
Amethyst: eases anxieties and creates calm, so you can connect easier to your intuition and understand your guides
Channeler Quartz : *quartz with a side-sided face directly opposite a three-sided face* creates a “window” of clear communication into higher realms.
Also, know that some spirit guides of your will connect strongly to different crystals. If you’ve made the intention to meet your spirit guide, and are randomly pulled to a stone you’ve never been to before, it’s a good chance that your spirit guide resonates with that stone.
