If you’re going through a spiritual awakening, communication with spirit guides is essential to helping you through. Learning to communicate with spirit guides is not only useful, it can be fun too.
How does learning to communicate with spirit guides help you through your awakening?[
Having open communication with spirit guides during your awakening means you can receive the guidance you need during this turbulent time.
Because we just at the beginning of the mass, global awakening for Earth, there is very little information available currently.
So it’s vital that you establish your own methods of communication with your spirit guides so you can receive direct instruction.
Being able to talk with your guides will also bring you great comfort during the difficult times.
Communication with spirit guides changes over time
Spiritual awakening is the process of (re)integrating your earthbound soul with its higher self in the upper dimensions.
This process usually takes a few years.
During that time, the way your spirit guides communicate with you changes.
Early on, before you are well integrated, you will typically receive messages in the form of whispers of intuition, visual images, and signs in your environment.
Later, when you are better integrated, your team can draw on the language centre in your brain.
Then you will start to receive verbal communication.
At this point, everything gets easier.
Daily meditation is a fundamental tool for integration and spirit guide communication
To speed up integration and be able to receive verbal communication from spirit guides, you need to meditate regularly, ideally daily.
Third eye meditation is the best technique for communication with spirit guides.
Not only will it help you receive verbal messages, but your team will be able to hear you more clearly too.
Meditation doesn’t have to be complicated, just five minutes each morning will move you along surprisingly quickly.
Watch the video below for an easy third eye daily meditation you can do in just 5 minutes.
Techniques for communication with spirit guides
There are many techniques you can use to communicate with spirit guides. Below are some tried and tested methods I used during my own awakening.
Communication with spirit guides #1: learn to listen to your intuition
What we call “intuition” is in fact a signal from a guide or our higher self.
Intuition can manifest in different ways, for example:
- A sudden emotion
- A cold shiver
- A hot flush
- A sense of just “knowing” something
Learn to spot these subtle messages and trust what they are telling you.
As we progress through our awakenings and language becomes available to our teams, sometimes whispers of messages also filter through.
This can start to happen before we have “consciously” awakened.
(Read this blog post to understand more about the start of a conscious awakening.)
When this happens, the message arrives very quickly and quietly, ahead of any subsequent conscious thought.
It arrives quickly because our guides are vibrating at a faster level than ourselves in the earlier part of our awakening.
Often our conscious thought – the second thing we “think” – is in direct contradiction to the first message we receive from our guides.
This is why they sent it – to try to keep us on the right track.
Learn to listen out for these quick, quiet messages and act on them.

Communication with spirit guides #2: learn to read signs
The universe sends us signs all the time.
During the most intense part of my own spiritual awakening I was able to see every sign around me.
There are a lot.
Your guides will send you signs for a few different reasons:
- To encourage you along a particular path
- To warn you of danger
- To show you love and support
If you suspect something is a sign, you are probably right.
Typically they will relate to a decision you have made or are trying to make.
Seeing the same sign more than once (synchronicity) is a sure indication that your guides are trying to tell you something.
Common signs are:
- Place names
- Names of people
If you think you’re receiving a sign and it’s not obvious to you what the message is, research it on the internet.
Our teams can only tell us so much (there are rules), so often they point the way for us to find the information we need.
If you’re awakening, then it’s very common to receive bird symbols related to the branch of the Soul Tree and member of the Council of Light you descend from.
Watch the video below to understand more about the Soul Tree.
Communication with spirit guides #3: use signs to get yes/no answers
Early in our awakenings we can establish two-way communication with spirit guides by using agreed signs to get yes/no answers.
This is very easy to do (especially if you meditate regularly).
Just ask a yes/no question out loud to your team, for example:
“Should I move to Florida?”
(It’s best to do this during or straight after a meditation session when you will be most “tuned in”.)
Then state out loud,
“The sign for yes is….”
Very shortly, either an image or a word should swim into your mind’s eye.
This is the sign your guides have provided for a “yes” answer.
Keep an eye out for the sign over the next 24 hours or so.
It could be an object in real life, something on TV or in a book, a logo on a t-shirt, or one of the many other ways your team can get a symbol in front of you.
Often you will see the sign more than once, and it should leap out at you.
If you don’t see the sign, the answer is no.
I used this method a lot with my guides in the early stages of awakening, before we could communicate verbally. It can be a lot of fun.
Communication with spirit guides #4: use divination tools
Divination tools such as runes, I Ching, coins, pendulums, and tarot cards are a great way to communicate with spirit guides.
During my own early awakening I used tarot cards in two ways:
- To get advice
- For yes/no answers to questions.
Read this blog post from lamucidesign.com to learn about using tarot for yes/no questions.
I can also recommend facade.com as an online divination tool.
Personally I prefer a yes/no approach to divination as it gives the clearest results.
Trustedtarot.com provides yes/no interpretations for the tarot deck here.
Divination is a vast field and there are many techniques.
Pick one that you feel drawn to and invest some time in learning how to use it.
You will soon find it becomes a valuable communication tool.
Communication with spirit guides #5: keep a dream diary
Our spirit guides communicate with us in dreams all the time.
The trick is to learn to remember your dreams – it’s a form of mind training.
Keeping a dream diary is a great way to recall your dreams and will also allow you to spot recurring symbols.
As soon as you wake up each morning, or if you wake in the night, jot down whatever you can remember.
It’s best to do this using an old-fashioned paper and pen.
Despite the enormous number of dream interpretation websites available, understanding the messages in your dreams is very personal.
Symbols can mean different things to different people.
When trying to interpret your dreams, think about decisions you are trying to make or situations you’re in.
How does the dream you had relate to these?
Once you feel you have an understanding, you can then use a divination tool to confirm your interpretation with your team, using yes/no questions.

Communication with spirit guides #6: learn to lucid dream
If you want to progress to two-way communication with your spirit guides during sleep, learn to lucid dream.
Lucid dreaming is an exceptionally powerful tool – one of the most powerful available to us on Earth – for communication, healing, and manifestation.
It just means that you are consciously aware you’re dreaming while you’re actually in the dream.
When you attain this state, you are able to control what happens.
It means you can meet with your guides and have a conversation, amongst other things.
(This is true even if you haven’t reached the point where you are receiving verbal communication in your waking life.)
It works because you have accessed a higher dimension in your sleep state.
Lucid dreaming is also a great tool for inner work as it allows us to explore issues and events which might be hidden from us on the earthly plane.
Charlie Morley is the modern-day expert on this technique, I used his book to teach myself during my own awakening.
I personally used lucid dreaming to meet my higher self and it was a game changer, so I encourage you to give it a go.
Watch Charlie’s video below for an overview of lucid dreaming.
Communication with spirit guides #7: communicate during meditation
I have already mentioned meditation but I wanted to include it again because it’s so important.
As I said, a third eye meditation is the most powerful one to use if you want to communicate with spirit guides.
Your third eye – or pineal gland – is both a sender and receiver of interdimensional communication.
Strengthening it will bring clarity and also help speed up integration with your higher self during awakening.
You can use the quick, easy third eye meditation I showed you in the video earlier in this post.
(Combine it with listening to a theta wave binaural beat recording through headphones for a deeper trance.)
Or if you prefer a guided meditation, try the one in the video below.
Communication with spirit guides #8: use hypnosis
The final method I can recommend to communicate with your spirit guides is hypnosis.
Because hypnosis results in a deep state of trance, it often means you can have a two-way conversation with your guides, as in a lucid dream.
If you’re interested in self-hypnosis I can recommend this book.
I used it myself to learn self-hypnosis techniques, and still use its methods today to attain a deeper trance during meditation.
You could also visit a spiritual hypnotherapist, which is something I did to explore my past lives and start to uncover my mission.
For a guided self-hypnosis focused on meeting your guides, try the video below.
I hope this article has been useful to you.
If you’re awakening, strengthening your third eye through meditation and finding ways to communicate with your spirit guides is of paramount importance.
Please try some of the methods I outline above, I guarantee you will get results.
