What better time to make that first active connection with your spirit guides than the week of Halloween, when the veil between the worlds is thinnest.
If you are pondering a challenging situation, set an inspired
place setting at your table. Include a small box of crayons or pens that inspire you. Write down your question in clear writing in the center of a piece of blank paper, and put this at your setting. Also brew a cup of tea. Bay leaf tea is known for helping open the psychic centers, but any tea will do.
Light a simple white candle, and anchor your intention by welcoming only your highest vibrational guides:
"I (your name) welcome my guardian angels and guides who are here to protect and support my life purpose. I ask for wisdom from my guides for my highest good, and the highest good of all. I open my psychic centers in the spirit of Love, and request only loving clear visions, thoughts, and inspirations as we share this Bay leaf tea. Welcome."
Hold the warm teacup against your heart chakra in the center of your chest. Center your awareness in your heart by awakening your sense of love. You can do this by remembering a positive, loving experience.
Once you begin to relax, open your eyes and read your question out loud. Ask your guides for clarity. Let go of any preconceived notions as to how that clarity should come about.
Flip over your paper so the blank side is facing you, crayons at the ready. Sip your tea in quiet contemplation, listening to your natural breath. Whatever thoughts come to you, even if they seem completely unrelated, write them down.
Also record colors, words, and feelings, as this is sometimes how spirit guides will speak. The more you do this exercise, the more you will begin to connect with your guides.
Spend at least 15 minutes over your tea.
When you feel finished, say:
"I give thanks for the insights I have received. I ask that my guides help me to close my psychic centers and help me ground back into my physical body in a way that is safe, natural, and most beneficial to my day. Thank you."
Take some time to imagine a clearing, grounding white light moving all excess energy down through your centerline and into the earth. Intone your name three times, reconnecting with the power of your own being.
