I receive at least 10 emails a week from people all over the world asking me if I have any additional tips on how to contact spirit guides. I have a page at my site that is very popular and I share my method there for free. It has worked for me & for many others as well. Here is some additional information that many of you may find useful if you’re feeling stuck or if results aren’t what you had hoped they would be.

Question # 1: “Do my guides speak my language?”

It’s okay to use your native language when speaking to your guides. They know all languages through all Time. Some guides are even extraterrestrial, but since it’s one spirit communicating with another, Spirit knows no language barriers so feel free to use your native language.

Question # 2: “Do I keep my eyes opened or closed?”

It does help to keep your eyes closed, only because you are doing a method of meditation when you attempt to contact your guides; however, some people find it useful to stare at a candle flame, which is actually the technique I used. You need to keep your eyes open for that, which I did, but once I found I was slipping toward a meditative state I would then close my eyes for the remainder of the session.

Question # 3: “Should I ask for spiritual protection?”

Most definitely – YES. I’d recommend you ask your angels or your god for protection, not  your guides. Guides are spirit. They do not protect. They advise only. Angels & higher beings are those who are capable of protecting people. I always call on Archangel Michael for all of  my sessions – whether I’m talking to my guides, giving someone a card reading or creating a piece of visionary art. All of those activities connect me to Spirit & whenever you attempt to connect to Spirit proper protection is essential. Protection keeps lower entities away who can come & pretend to be spirit guides when they are nothing of the sort.

Question # 4: “How long will it take before I see any results?”

It usually takes weeks, sometimes even months, for a person to see, hear or sense anything. It took me 3 months before I could sense any presences and after that about another 2 weeks before I developed the ability to hear my spirit guides.

Question # 5: “How do spirit guides communicate with the living?”

Guides often work with symbols so look at what you’re seeing. Determine if any symbols are present during your meditation session. Then write them down.  When you come out of your meditation attempt to determine what these symbols mean to you personally. If you have no idea, then google them like so:

“symbolic meaning of a car”

“symbolic meaning of waves”

“symbolic meaning of mountains”

and so on. You can find a LOT of really excellent sites on the interpretation of symbols & that should help in determining what the symbols mean.

Also, pay closer attention to your dreams and write them down in a journal immediately upon waking. Don’t wait thinking you’ll remember what you dreamed once you’ve had your morning coffee. We often forget as much as 96% of our dream content by the time we’ve made it to that first cup in the morning. Pay attention to any symbols you receive in dreams. First attempt to determine what they mean to you; and, if that doesn’t work then use Google.

Question # 6: “How can I be able to see my spirit guides?”

This occurs when you can see with your mind, with your “inner eye,” otherwise known as the Third Eye chakra, located just above the bridge of your nose in between your eyes. It may help you to obtain a quartz crystal & place it on your third eye to help charge your third eye with extra energy. That could help in your sessions.

Question # 7: “What do I need to do to my quartz crystal so it will help open & activate my Third Eye?”

quartz crystal copyTo prepare your crystal it needs to be cleansed & programmed. It’s very simple.

To cleanse: place it in a bowl of water into which you have dissolved some table salt. Set it out under the moonlight overnight. Full moon is best, but as long as the moon is visible this will work.

Next day, rinse it off. Place it in a fresh bowl of water, NO salt. Place it out under the sun from morning to sunset.

Your crystal is now cleansed & charged. Now it’s time to program it.

A quartz crystal – unlike other stones & crystals – can be charged for up to 3 purposes. You do this by touching the crystal to your third eye and state your intention for the program. For example:

“I charge this crystal to help open my inner sight so I can see my spirit guides.”

“I charge this crystal to open my inner hearing so I can hear my spirit guides speak to me.”

“I charge this crystal to help me to understand messages from my spirit guides.”

You probably get the idea. Other crystals you can use include lapis lazuli, flourtite (the darker blue, lavender & purple shades), sugilite, & amethyst. NOTE: if you use amethyst be careful when charging out under the sun. I leave amethyst out for only an hour because sunlight can cause it to fade.

Then use your crystal for every session. If you find your crystal starting to look cloudy, discolored, or it no longer feels “right” to you, repeat the cleansing & charging process & reprogram your crystal. Then it’s ready to be used again.

Keep in mind that spirit guides were once human just like you and I (unless you end up with extraterrestrial guides, which is not beyond the realm of possibility). They have quirks and some can be real personalities. Some are chatty while others may be quiet and reserved. Get to know your spirit guides as people, because they all were once people. You can forge very strong and life-lasting spiritual friendships this way. Your spirit guides will appreciate your efforts and reward you with a lifetime of accurate and helpful guidance.

Wishing you many blessings!

How to Activate Your Third Eye Chakra

Special thanks to Darcy for sending me a question on Facebook that inspired this post.

I get asked all sorts of questions all the time & here is one I think many of you have so I am sharing my response to Darcy.

Clear Quartz Crystal.What do you do if you wish to be more intuitive?  Darcy realized it’s important to activate & balance your Third Eye chakra, but she wondered how she could do it ? There’s a very simple method and all you need is a clear quartz crystal.  Size doesn’t matter, just be sure 1 end of it terminates in a point.

First you’ll have to cleanse it. I do this by putting the crystal in a bowl of spring or filtered water with a teaspoon of salt mixed in & leave it under the moon over night.

Next, it is ready to be charged. Give the water to the earth, then rinse the bowl & place in it only spring or filtered water, no salt this time. Place the crystal in the bowl of water & set it out in the sun all day long.  Your crystal is now cleansed & charged, ready to use.

Next, you need to set your intention for your crystal. You hold it up to your Third Eye, point facing upward toward the top of your head & state your intention SEVEN times & be SURE your intention is worded the same EACH TIME.  You may wish to write down your intention first.

Something like, “In the Name of All That is Good (or, in the Name of ______ <insert name of God/dess>), I charge this crystal to help open & balance my Third Eye chakra.”

Repeat 7 times, then your crystal is ready to be used. You can keep it on you in a pocket or purse, or keep it by your bedside table at night (warning: quartz can keep you up at night, just FYI), or in a sacred place in your home. Everyday hold the crystal up to your third eye & repeat your intention 7 times to help open & balance your third eye.

A quartz crystal is the only kind that can hold up to 3 unrelated intentions, so you can use it for other things like protection, love, prosperity, whatever. You can charge it up to 3 intentions the same way as above, except leave out the moon cleansing & sun charging since it only needs to be done once.

Should your crystal seem to stop working for you, or if it cracks or grows discolored, Amethyst stone with chevronbefore buying a new one, try the lunar cleanse & solar charging again. If that won’t work then the crystal has served its purpose and it’s time to buy a new one & return that one to the earth from whence it came.

ImageOther crystals good for third eye are: Amethyst, Lapis Lazuli, & Fluorite (purple), also Sodalite.  Azurite is particularly good (but can be hard to find & kind of expensive, if you can find it, get it tumbled as it’s so pretty tumbled), & any other purple or dark blue stone.

There are particular crystals & stones associated with each chakra. If you wish to combine stones & crystals with your chakra work there is plenty of information online.  Remember, Google is your best friend 🙂

NOTE:  WordPress is now showing ads at the bottom of my blog. I do NOT endorse any of these ads or approve of this change.  They are doing this because I am not paying their crazy fee to go ad-free for $30/year.  If they would work out all the problems I encounter every time I attempt to post anything I would be happy to pay that fee, but for now looks like ads will be inflicted upon you all & I do apologize.  Should anyone wish to donate a contribution so I can upgrade my blog to WordPress’s premium service, which would then be free of ads as well, please send a donation to me using PayPal.  We’ve had car problems, doctor’s visits, & I’m so strapped right now it’s not even funny or I’d just say be done with it & upgrade immediately.  My PayPal payment address is: & thank you to anyone in advance for your kind contribution.  Here is what you receive if you donate to my blog so I can upgrade:

  • $5 – a tea light enchantment with the intention of your choice.
  • $10 – a 3-card Lenormand reading on any subject, except health. Sorry, I do not do health readings for ethical reasons.  
  • $20 – a votive enchantment with the intention of your choice.

Each person who contributes will also be thanked publicly at my blog unless they wish to remain anonymous.  Again, I apologize for the WordPress ads.

Lastly, when the links to my blog are posted, lately they have not gone “live” immediately as in the past.  You may get an “Error 404: Page Not Found” message. If you do, please try again in an hour or two.  WordPress is having these issues, not me, & there isn’t anything I can do about them, unfortunately. I apologize for any inconvenience this may be causing any of you.
