Here are some ways to work on increasing your direct connection:
First, make sure you won’t be disturbed. As you have your ideal quiet place in mind, gently send out your intention: "I wish to contact my spirit guide." Then repeat this simple invocation for protection:
As I ask for their guidance & advice at this time. Once your spirit guide appears, introduce yourself. Then ask them who they are. A name will be provided. Next, ask your Spirit Guide if he/she has any advice for you. Many times, for this first visit, the spirit guide simply makes their presence known and won't have a real message for you. If that’s the case, do not despair. Next time you attempt to contact your spirit guide, he/she will have something important to say. Once your Spirit Guide has imparted their message, be sure to thank them. You’ve established an important connection.
One of the best ways to meet and connect with your guides is to meet them halfway. Open your dream world up to them. You can put out the intention every night to connect with your guides in your dreams. It may take a while, but it will work. Most spirit guides and loved ones who’ve passed over prefer to come to us in our dreams because that’s when we are most calm and relaxed. Spirit guides often communicate with us through dreams because they have direct access to our subconscious through our dreams. Also, at that time our defenses are down. We don’t attempt to filter out strange voices or images in our dreams, so our spirit guides have a much easier time contacting us than while we're awake. When you have this type of dream connection, check the time... it’ll usually be 3:00am. This is the most psychic time.
Play close attention to your dreams. All you need is a sincere desire to make such a connection, an open mind, and above all, patience. It’s very rare to get instant results, but it does happen. Good luck connecting with your guides—they’re around you right now! Give me a call for a spiritual reading if you have questions.
