Spirit guides are amazing beings that guide their charges through life and help them keep to  their true life path. Some stay with a person throughout his or her entire life, and others pop in every so often to help with specific problems or life goals. However, it is important to understand that spirit guides are there to help, and they have a great deal of wisdom to share. (source)

As with most things, communicating with and hearing your spirit guide takes a little practice.

Jeffery Allen, Energy Healer and teacher, states“Learning to hear your Spirit Guides is a little like learning to walk as a child. All that’s really required to learn to walk is that you keep trying.” It takes patience and time, but with a calm mind, and an open heart, it is possible to hear your spirit guide and the many messages your spirit guide has to share.

Getting started can be difficult because everything is new, and most people don’t know what to look for. Luckily, there are some very clear signs that your spirit guide is trying to contact you. If you experience any of these signs, it is important to relax, meditate, and listen.

5 Signs Your Spirit Guides are Trying to Contact You!

#1 Vivid Dreams or Visions During Meditation


When you are sleeping or meditating, your mind is relaxed and, at the same time, working at a completely different level than when you are conscious or doing day-to-day activities. It is at this time that your mind is open to messages from your spirit guides.

It is difficult for beginners to hear and understand words, so guides will send images first. Meditate on these visions or dreams and write them down in a journal. They are an important message from your spirit guides.

#2 The Need to Write Freely

If you ever get the feeling that you need to sit down and just write something, this is your spirit guide trying to contact you. Free writing helps the brain come up with new and creative ways to solve a problem or think about a certain issue or experience. Your spirit guide can also nudge your writing and thinking in the right direction during this time. Always write things down when you feel the urge!

#3 Feeling a Presence

Most people will understand this feeling because it happens more often than we think. You may be relaxing or in the working zone and you will suddenly feel a presence in the same room or near you. This is the sign of a deceased loved one, guardian angel, or a spirit guide. Feeling a presence is a clear sign that the guide or loved one wants to communicate with you, and you should stop what you are doing, and breathe and meditate so that it is easier to hear what the spirit says.

#4 Repeating Numbers or Animals


Many times, a person will see repeating numbers or things in sets of three like a bus number 333, the time 1:11, or even groups of three black birds or geese. This is a sign from your spirit guide. When this happens, it is important to focus on what you were thinking about when you saw that sign or right before you saw it, because it could be extremely important!

#5 Hearing Your Name

Have you ever heard your name called while walking through a crowded street or reading at a busy cafe? This name calling normally snaps you out of your train of thought and you immediately look around to see who it was, but recognize no one. Well, this event means your spirit guide is trying to get your attention. It is important to use this time to stop and listen or pay extra attention to what you were thinking about before your name was called.

Spirit guides use many different signs to communicate with their charges and these can be different for each person. However, the time it takes to learn to connect and listen to your spirit guides is time well spent.
