Finding your spirit guide or guides is possible, but you must first make the decision that you are going to do this.
The seven laws of attraction are powerful tools to be brought into play for this purpose.
A strong desire to achieve this aim to be able to contact spirit guides, is paramount.
Finding Your Spirit Guide: Talking To Spirits
Connecting with spirit guides may take different forms.
To help you with finding your spirit guide, you should continue with the meditation process on a daily basis.
It is common to find that as you do this daily activity, that you will begin to have a strong awareness of the presence of your guide or in some cases more than one guide.
In the past I was fascinated by the whole idea of how to find my spirit guide, and I wanted very much to achieve this aim.
So I decided to take action, to contact spirit guides that might be waiting to work with me.
The idea of finding your spirit guide has come to the interest of many of us, after seeing someone famous who was a psychic clairvoyant or spiritual medium on television.
These people who were talking to spirits may have been communicating with their spirit guides, who gave them the information. They then gave this information to those asking questions of them.
Clairvoyance or mediumship are two of the words or terms regularly used to describe these people who are “talking to spirits”.
term is often used to refer to a person, similar to the famous
‘psychics’ we see on stage or television, who is making contact with
those on the other side.
Clairvoyance is not just associated with talking to spirits.
The actual meaning of the word clairvoyance is “clear seeing.” This refers to the ability to see psychic visions.
There are different ways that these psychics or mediums communicate with their guides.
If they have the gift of clairaudience, this gift may be the way they are receiving the information.
There are other psychic powers that can be used to facilitate talking to spirits and many of those who are psychic have a combination of different psychic gifts.
Clairaudience or psychic hearing, is the ability to hear the voice of spirit and those with this gift are usually able to actually hear spirit or their guides.
Choosing Which Stones To Use
There are a number of healing crystals for you to use that are especially beneficial for this purpose. The use of most of the high crystal energy stones will help.
Among this group, a few special ones come to mind, and you will see them mentioned below.
There are also a number of other crystals that have powerful properties to aid the process. An example is Purpurite shown in the picture below.
During meditation, you may choose to use Purple Purpurite, as it is an excellent stone to make the connection with your guides.
It may also allow you to hear what they are communicating to you more distinctly.
Petalite has a sweet high vibration that may put you in contact with angels and in particular your guardian angels.
Lepidocrocite is excellent combined with it to strengthen the process. As it will take you high into the spiritual realms it may help you with

Another very interesting stone to consider is Atacamite. While some
people find it has a forceful energy, it can be of great assistance to develop your psychic powers.

process. Simply wearing them during the day is also helpful to help you
to achieve this more quickly.
Grounding & Protection
Take note: if you are doing a lot of spiritual work you may become ungrounded. It is important to regularly do spiritual grounding, to ensure you do not develop any health problems.
It may benefit you to keep both grounding and psychic protection stones on you, as this is important.
An important preventative measure is to regularly do a grounding meditation, into the earth star chakra.
Psychic protection is valuable when you are opening yourself to contact with the spiritual realm, so keep protection stones on you.
Some protective crystals that you might choose to use could be Moss Agate, Amber, Charoite, Sugilite, Black Tourmaline, Black Obsidian and Purple Amethyst.
These are all highly recommended for this purpose, but there are quite a few more that are listed in the article on psychic protection.

Who Is My Spirit Guide?
Finding your spirit guide is a matter of beginning the process of connecting with your spirit guides.
But once you are aware that you have made contact with your guide many of you may want to know if your guide is someone famous or particularly special.
It is common to hear of people who tell us that they have ancient spirit guides, some famous historical person or an Indian spirit guide.
It is common for many people to say they have Indian spirit guides, and part of the reason for this is the culture of the Indian races were very spiritual.
They had a strong connection with both the earth and the spirit world. So the information gained in these lives remains with the spirits, and they use it to assist those they choose to guide.
How To Discover Who Your Spirit Guide Is
The best way to find out “Who is my spirit guide?” is to ask your guide!
Once you start working with your spirit guide, you
will naturally become aware of certain attributes of them.
- If you are clairvoyant ask them to show you how they look.
- If you are
clairsentient you may sense how they look, and have an awareness of their sex or race from
your communication with them.
- Remember to ask what you wish to know, and wait to be told, when and what they wish you to know.
- So… if you are clairaudient, just ask them. In the final analysis it is up to them to tell you what they want you to know.
Sometimes finding your spirit guides is easy, but for others you may have to work for a little while before you get all the answers you may want.
The seven laws of attraction will assist you, so be sure to take care to use this powerful system to help you.
Once you start working with your spirit guide you will be able to achieve more in your life.
How To Do A Meditation To Contact Spirit Guides
So lets begin the meditation to contact your spirit guides. An attitude of gratitude should be held in your mind as you sit down.
- It is desirable to quieten your mind in preparation. As you begin the
meditation start by centering yourself.
- Become aware of your inner being
and sit quietly, allowing yourself to go deeper and deeper into
relaxed, inner awareness.
- Allow any thoughts that come into your mind to simply release and float away. Just let go of everything and become peaceful.
- Allow your aim of finding your spirit guide to dwell in your mind, just floating lightly, with no pressure for it to happen.
- Remain in this state of quietness and harmony for some minutes. If thoughts come up, just allow them to float away.
- Think welcoming thoughts as you wait for your guide to make contact.
Every day lengthen the period you sit in silent contemplation and you may choose to combine this with a psychic meditation.
Ensure always to have a definite attitude of gratitude, and an
expectation that you will achieve the purpose of this particular
meditation of finding your spirit guide.
Communicating With Spirit Guides
During successful meditation your brain waves slow, as their rhythm changes from the beta wave… of normal day to day activities, to the slower alpha wave.
Two specific areas of the brain, the Amygdala and the Anterior Cingulate Cortex are said to be connected with developing any psychic abilities, including finding your spirit guide.
Using isochronic tones is effective to aid the development of psychic gifts, including your intuition.
This is because it works by encouraging these areas of the brain to entrain with the new rhythms that are introduced.
As your mind chatter stops, and you go deeper into the meditative state, you may find that these gifts develop more easily, and you will learn how to be psychic.
Those communicating with spirit guides may find that it is possible to communicate using a variety of the psychic abilities, not just clairaudience.
Some people think that in order to have this contact that they must hear the voice of spirit, but there are other ways of communicating with spirit guides.
If the psychic gift you are developing is clairvoyance or
clairsentience, you may not actually hear spirit guide voices.
