Guardians, Angels, Guides and other spirit helpers are all around us. There are personal guides and helpers, as well as larger divine beings of light such as archangels and ascended masters, as well as other planetary ascension helpers such as the Hathors who are here to evolve. They are higher dimensional, higher frequency beings which makes it difficult for our 3D eyes and senses to perceive if we are not tuned in to our spiritual awareness. Yet, they are always doing their best to communicate, in hopes of a breakthrough in our perception.
In the early 90s I became aware of several of my main guides as I explored using my intuitive vision as an artist. "Guardians" came onto canvas, as well as into my head and heart. The painting was not just "visionary" but clearly multi-sensory and multi-dimensional. It became clear my guides were coming into form to not only greet me, but to get my attention and let me know I was not alone. I was never alone, and they always were there for me. They had my back.
Now many moons later, many paintings later, and a multitude of mystical experiences later I have come to know my helpers are always there, doing their best to not only be of service and support me in this life, but to guide me into greater levels of love and joy and higher consciousness. I hear them, feel them, see them with my inner senses, perceive them. It seems easy now, to know, trust and experience direct guidance not only from my guides, angels, totem animals, ancestors (the ones who have walked before and are on the other side), but also multi-dimensional beings I might say are alien or other planetary consciousness who desire to assist. And it is easy to tap into to to so for others in Spirit Guide Paintings, Shamanic Healing Sessions and Intuitive readings.
It wasn't always easy, and it wasn't always something I believed I was capable of. In the late 80s though, I began metaphysical training and began to dive into the invisible spiritual realm with practices that assisted me in connected to the unseen world. I didn't think I was capable or gifted. Yet, as I learned to still my mind, I was began to access the unseen worlds where our higher dimensional guardians are awaiting our connection.
Cool thing is, you can connect too!
The best way to get to know your guardians and helpers from the invisible realms is to say "hello!" from the deepest levels of your heart. Be curious. Be kind. Be upfront and let them know you want to make contact. Any ally, guardian, angel, fairy, ancestor, ascended master and helper really like it when you will introduce yourself, say hello and let the know you want to connect. You don't have to know their names or who they are to begin.
Thank your guides for being part of your life. Honor them and their powers, and gifts. It can be a general conversation as you begin, i.e., "Dear Guides and Guardians, thank you for helping me through my life. You are powerful and wise. I appreciate how you have nudged me in the right directions when I could listen and take guidance, and for your patience and perseverance when I was unaware. I appreciate your love and commitment to me.
Make a heart and soul offering, through clarity of intention and heart's desire. Offer them your time, your stillness, your willingness to meet and connect. Set an altar to hold a physical place where you honor them, honor their gifts (even if you are learning what that might be), where you give them your attention. Leave flowers, burn incense, light a candle, write prayers. Leave candy and gifts that are of the heart.
Give your guides direction and requests for contact. Ask them to make it clear! "Leave a penny or coin on the ground for you to know they are with you." Ask for the parking spot when going to the store. Ask for protection. Ask them to give you clarity of guidance for a particular subject in your life.
Once you begin to make requests of your guides, always be generous in gratitude and offerings in return. As in any relationship, it is a reciprocal situation. Bless your guides as you ask them to bless you.
The more attention you give to your guides and helpers from the invisible world, the more energy will collect and expand for you to experience their reciprocity and communication back to you. Be open to how they will communicate. Become childlike in your nature, curious and questioning. This is a key to noticing their various ways in contacting you and communicating. What's it like to "imagine" their conversation? What is their demeanor? Their energy? Are they funny, stern, wise, simple, kind, animal, angel, other dimensional? Once you begin the path of curiosity, they will reveal themselves through frequency that you will identify by one or several of your senses.
To know your guides and helpers requires developing stillness and observation. This is required to engage any of your extra sensory senses. Sit still in nature and observe in deep quietude. Sit still and meditate. Engage concentration exercises to hone your skillsets. Reflect. Journal. Ask, listen, reflect.
Your guides are very happy you are reading this article right now. Whatever urged you to read this, know that very specifically YOUR guides are urging you to go deeper on the path, and this is one of the steps, or breadcrumbs. Breadcrumbs are the synchronicities or coincidences that get your attention. It is when you know who is calling when the phone rings. Or you were just thinking of a person and you run into them at the store. It is the sign on the back of the car in front of you, that sends a message you can't ignore. It is the clock that says 11:11 or 12:12 or 4:44 each time you look at it. There are numerous sign posts and synchronicities along the way.
If you are curious and want to try some of these things, get a journal and begin to write down synchronicities that begin to come once you have begun to say hello, to be still, to ask for their support, or at least their appearance.
Dedicate your journal to the communication between you and your guides. Write in it to communicate what is on your heart and mind. Follow the steps above. As you write, do so as you are communicating directly to each of your beloved helpers. It doesn't matter if you don't know who they are. They will begin to answer and speak to you in a manner through your journaling that is different than your voice, and is not in the first person "I". Instead you will begin to hear or sense the conversation being direct to you, rather from you. Write it as you experience this, with answers and guidance coming you may never have thought of, or accepted before.
Record synchroniciites, such as when you look at the clock and see repeating numbers or triple digits. Write down when you have asked for help, and you get a call from a dear friend asking how you are. Your guides have reached through the energy web to activate your ground crew.
Having a log gives attention to your journey of awakening to communication with your guides. It also slows you down so you can be aware. Admitting what you sense and experience moves you from believing to knowing. You must admit your experiences and claim them to build upon your abilities of perception. It strengthens the link with you and your guides as it would any relationship where you actively work on communication, giving and receiving.
We are in an ever evolving spiritual journey. This 3D reality of human life is more and more chaotic, as we are in times many refer to as the Kali Yuga. It is a dark and challenging time, with a purpose that propels many of us forward in our own spiritual awakening. Our guide teams and helpers have always has a great role at assisting us through this dimensions. And I find we need them now more than ever to navigate the dense human reality, and to remember we are timeless souls, not bound by the form of a body. Our guides are some of our best helpers to assist us in remembering who we truly are, and how to align ourselves with a higher reality and experience.
