Many people ask me how they can start getting messages from their Spirit Guides. Sometimes the answer is as simple as making time for it. We often get so busy that we don’t make time to listen to the messages we’re already getting throughout the day.
I recently started making time in the morning to talk with my Spirit Guides. I make a cup of tea and call it my “tea time with Spirits.” It has become a soothing ritual for me, and I am able to get messages that inspire my day. If you would like to have your own tea time with Spirit Guides, here’s a suggestion of how to do it!
Set your timer.
I decided that my tea time would be 20 minutes long and that it would be the first thing I do in the morning when I start my computer. Whether I get a message or not, I will sit there with my tea and computer ready for 20 minutes. Rather than rushing to start my to-do list, I reinforce that I have plenty of time to sit and slowly enjoy a cup of tea and nurture my Spirit.
Calm your mind.
I begin by taking a few minutes to calm my mind. You could do something like the Sun Meditation, say a prayer, an affirmation, or just take a few moments to be silent.
Ask for guidance.
After I feel calm and focused, I take a sip of my tea and ask my Spirit Guides what messages they have for me. If there’s something on my mind, I ask them for guidance about that. Then, I poise my fingers over the keyboard and listen. The message might feel like a whisper in your head, a quiet thought. You might get a sense of knowing or a meaningful image. A song might repeat in your mind and have a special meaning for you. Write down anything that comes to you, even if you feel like you’re making it up.
The more you do this, the more relaxed you will feel, and the more experiences you will have. Have patience with yourself, and release your expectations of what you are supposed to experience.
Is it real?
Many people ask me how to tell the difference between a message from their Spirit Guides and just their imagination. Messages from Spirit Guides are always loving and compassionate. If you go to them with a concern, your thoughts are probably influenced by fear or self-judgment. The message you receive in return will feel peaceful, loving, compassionate, and give you the insight you are looking for.
