Would you like to start working with your spiritual guides today? Tap into your inner wisdom, your expanded self, strengthen that quiet voice inside you that is always right (but that’s so easy to ignore)?
There are two simple things to do first that help you get good guidance:
1. Set your intention
2. Set a safe space
We are all powerful a lot more powerful than we think we are – and setting intentions when you work with your guides calls in your power and focuses the experience to meet your needs and desires. This doesn’t mean that you’re bossing your guides around, it means that you are meeting them halfway, that you’re coming to the table committed to interacting with them and following the guidance they give you.
It’s really important when you start working with your guides that you have set a safe space. This is because you want to be working for guides that are of a high frequency. Just because Jimmy JoeBob’s sister’s hairdresser recently passed over doesn’t mean she is a good guide for you.
You want to access guidance that helps you make your dreams come true. I’ve shared below two brief scripts that you can read to get you started. Revise them as you wish.
Set Your Intention
I set the intention that I am able to meet and work with my guides of highest light and love. I intend to communicate and work with my guides and ask their assistance in receiving and understanding what they are sharing with me. I ask that the guidance received be clear, easily understood, in support of my mission and purpose in this life, and for the good of all. So be it and so it is.
Set a Safe Space
I set the intention that I be surrounded by my guides of highest love and light. I ask that I be protected and supported in all ways and at all times during my work with my guides. So be it and so it is.
There is a more detailed script for setting a safe space here.
Then relax, see if you hear, sense, or feel anything. Ask for any help you’d like. Keep a journal by your bed so you can note any guidance you receive in dreams.
Pay attention to what pops up as you move through your day too – one of the most frequent ways guides work with us is through other people – so you might overhear a conversation, or see a billboard or hear a song on the radio that gives you the answer you’re looking for. I think of it as a treasure hunt.
Be grateful for any guidance you receive, even if it’s nothing specific but just a sense of comfort and peace – and more will come. The guides want to know that you’re paying attention and what types of communication work best for you – so sharing your gratitude at the end of the day is a wonderful and easy way to strengthen the relationship with them.
My guides are my family and their support is so helpful – it’s my hope that taking these first actions will help you start to have the same comfort with your guides.
