Top Tips For Contacting Your Spirit Guide – Patience!

Recently I read a very interesting review on Amazon for our MP3 download ‘contacting your spirit guide’. (The Spiritual & Psychic Development Meditation Collection.)  It had been given two stars as they said that while it was relaxing they’d tried it a few times and hadn’t made contact with their spirit guide.
Some of the downloads were always meant to be (including this particular one) used alongside ‘The Spiritual & Psychic Development Workbook’. In the book we do say that Contacting your spirit guide doesn’t happen overnight.

It can take many attempts and years of practice for some people. Others never know who their guides are, but manage to work psychically and often to do platform work as mediums quite successfully.

I worked consistently for a number of years, including meditating for years while ‘seeing’ nothing at all. I couldn’t easily see things in mind’s eye and made no contact with my guides. I started working on my own when I was about 14 and made contact with my first spirit guide when I was around the age of 23 while I was on a Reiki course.

Can’t My Spirit Guide Just Text Like Everyone Else?

Maybe people are too used to having things instantly today or getting a quick fix. You can’t, it doesn’t work like that.

Connecting with your spirit guide is not absolutely essential. In some endeavours, it makes spirit communication a little easier but there’s plenty you can do without them.

Maybe people think their spirit guide will tell them what to do or give them a shortcut, or magic word and that will deliver everything they wish. They won’t, it doesn’t work like that.
Once you have the basics in place (protection, opening, closing & grounding) I would suggest an all rounded approach to your spiritual and psychic development; working with lots of different subjects to find what you’re good at, or drawn to. Include some work to contact your spirit guide but don’t make it the primary focus or you’ll get frustrated if you can’t do it.


  • If you’re focussing on your spirit guide, and not having contact with them you’ll block your flow of energy and development.
  • Relax
  • Accept that your guides will be there without the need for proof or contact. Talk to them anyway and thank them for their help.
  • Meditate regularly
  • Ask your spirit guides to be near and to communicate with you
  • Be open-minded and look out for signs that your spirit guides are around. Examples include meaningful coincidences, repeated symbols, unusual sounds and white feathers.
  • Try dowsing to open up the lines of communication with them

Enjoy what you learn along the way, and in time, with practice and patience, you may well get to see, feel, or speak with your spirit guide. And if you don’t you will have learnt a lot and developed your skills regardless As a result, you will be rewarded in many other ways.
