It is that time of year again, the veil between spirit and living is thinning. With this time of the year comes experiences that some people cannot explain. If you would like to deepen your connection to the energies this season to gain comfort and understanding of what is going on around you here are some tips to get you started.
Before you even think of dabbling in the spirit world you must be sure to prepare and protect yourself. Connect with your spirit guides, or angles. They will be able to guide you safely through this process, and can be an essential resource if they are needed. Remember they are there to guide and protect you, so be sure to have a strong connection with them before any other forms of spirt work. Visualize a white light of protection, let it cover you like armor and feel the protection it provides. You can also use many crystals such as quartz and amethyst as an extra layer of protection. If you are new to spirit work you may also want to smudge before you begin to clear out any negative energies leaving only the positive behind.
Set and State your Intentions
Ask yourself why. Why do you want to communicate with the spirit world, what do you hope to accomplish? Once you are clear about your intention you can ask your guides and angels to help deliver experiences, information and people towards you that will assist you on your journey. Remember to state your intention clearly, you can be an active participant in what you choose to allow in or not.
The final step is being open to receiving and trusting in your abilities and your connection to yourself and source energy. Experiences will come your way when you are truly ready, willing and open to receiving them. Dabbling in the spirit world can be fun but it can also be extremely dangerous. If you are genuinely interested in expanding your gifts and abilities, the above three steps will guide you well. If at any point you begin to feel uncomfortable, stop right away and employ your protection tools.
