Finding your spirit guide interests many people, and perhaps as you read this, maybe you are aware that you would also like to know more.

This is because quite a few of us are aware, in a vague sort of way, that we have spirit guides.

You may wonder, if you were to find your spirit guide, might this improve your quality of life? Perhaps you are wondering what is the best way to go about this.

Connecting with spirit guides may take different forms. To aid 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.

Finding Your Spirit Guide... Talking To Spirits

The ability to contact spirit guides is available to all of us. 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. 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".

The 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 some stones 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.

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 finding your spirit guide. Herderite opens new pathways in the brain and will facilitate contact with the spirit realm.

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.

Use Anyolite, also known as Green Zoisite with Ruby, if you need extra help with the communicating process, as this crystal has a strong vibration within the third eye chakra.

Herkimer Diamonds used with any other crystals will assist them to elevate you to a higher awareness.

Used alone Herkimer Diamonds have the ability to enhance your communication and help with finding your spirit guides. Prehnite helps you to communicate with beings from the higher realms, so it is an important crystal to aid you with this process.

Any of the third eye chakra stones or any of the crown chakra stones are noted for their ability to enhance your psychic gifts. So look through the list of chakra stones for these specific chakras, to decide what to use.

Grounding and 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.

An important preventative measure is to regularly do a grounding meditation, into the earth star chakra. It may benefit you to keep both grounding and psychic protection stones on you, as this is important.

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.

Connecting With Spirit Guides

A lovely white Datolite crystal is shown on the right. Be aware that you can use your crystals for this purpose by simply holding a piece of your favorite stone in your hand.

The first part of finding your spirit guide is making the decision that it is achievable. 

If you expect that it is likely for you to be able to do this, the gifts you wish to gain may possibly develop. You first need to take a few simple steps. It may take a little while to happen and it will take a bit of commitment, but for most people it is possible.

  • Step 1 to assist you with your goal of connecting with your spirit guides, is to do a specific meditation for contacting your guides every day.
  • Step 2 is to feel gratitude, in advance, for the thing that you want to happen.

If you have any of the stones on the list of crystals to aid contact with guides, use these during your meditation.

Holding one or more of these stones during meditation, will aid this process. Simply wearing them during the day is also helpful to help you to achieve this more quickly.

When you buy a new stone or crystal, it is advantageous to use it on its own first. Once you are fully aware of its energy, you may choose to combine it with other stones.

Combine stones for short periods to begin with, as individuals may react differently. Knowing how you can combine various stones may be helpful, as this allows you to get the most from your crystals, and may help you to solve specific problems in your life.
