Spirit Guide Meditation

If you haven't already, you may want to take a look at our explanation of what Spirit Guides are. Once you know what they are, you might want to meet them, find a way to speak to them and use their guidance.

There are many ways that a guide can come to you and introduce themselves. Dreams are one of the most common, but you don't have to sleep through the visit. You can talk to them while you're driving and you need guidance getting out of an unfamiliar town, or country road. Just ask and then follow your instincts, it's usually a little whisper telling you which way to turn.

If you'd like to have a more meaningful face to face, you might try one of the best methods. Meditation. If you sit down and plan out what you want to do with your meditations, set the intent so to speak, then you can accomplish journey's across the globe, to the moon, or into the ethers to meet you guides or relatives.

Why meet your guides?
Your guides are a great source of strength, comfort, support and gathering information for your current embodiment. From asking them to help you find your lost keys to supporting you and giving you direction with a major life decision, they are here for you.

We've laid out 2 examples of these guided or visualized meditations for those who would like to give it a try. Remember that our method is simply what works for us and it may not be the perfect structure for your efforts. But don't give up if it doesn't work the first time. Just keep practicing and trying to "sense" the presence of your unseen friends.

Spirit Guide Meditation

Our guides are here to help us out everyday, so talk to them and ask for their guidance. Talk to them in your conscious states, in your dreams and in these types of mediations. Remember they are on the astral levels and are filled with love and compassion. They never loose patience with us, they never get mad at us and they never judge our actions.

Since this is a special meditation, you may want to prepare your meditation space in a special way. Add a few ritualistic events, such as lighting a white candle and saying a prayer stating your intent for this meditative session. Some people like to decorate their meditative space with a spiritual symbol, a celtic cross, ankh, pentacle, or other symbols to add to the spiritual significance of this meditation.

Once you are all set and prepared, this is what you do. Take your time, try to imagine as much detail as possible.

  1. Sit in a comfortable position, one that you can sustain for about 30-45 minutes.
  2. Close your eyes and take in a deep cleansing breath. Fill your lungs to their fullest capacity. Then release the breath through your mouth and push all the air out of your body. Take in 3 deep breaths through the nose, imagine the white light from the universe coming into your lungs and collecting at your solar plexus.
  3. With all 3 exhales, image all the stress, anxiety and negativity you have leaving your body carried out to the universe on a gay smoke where it can be dissipated and no longer do harm to anyone. As you exhale, imagine the events of the day or week floating out of your body. Put these worries aside and begin to relax your entire body and mind. Feel the tension in your muscles begin to subside. Begin at your solar plexus and imagine the white light moving up and down your body from this point. Imagine the warmth of the energy as it passes through your muscles and organs. Feel the tingling sensations as the light moves down to your toes and up your body to the top of your head. Imagine your entire body engulfed by this white divine light, from the inside out.
  4. Say a prayer once more asking your guides and teachers to come to you and to help with the purpose of this mediation. State your intention clearly and ask 'God' to help you with your meditative journey. Don't forget to thank them up front for their efforts.
  5. This step takes a little practice, don't worry if you can't do this for any extended period of time, but at least give it a try. Keep your eyes closed, but look up at the pineal gland. This is a small gland located in the middle of your forehead, just above the brow. (this is also considered to be the position of your third eye and is therefore the gateway to higher conscious realms). Try to keep your eyes focused on this point. The muscles around your eyes may become sore as you stretch them upward, so don't over do this at first. As you practice, this step will become easier and easier to do.
  6. As you focus on your third eye imagine your at the base of a tunnel, dimly light and slanted upward. Imagine your astral body (or your soul) standing up from your physical body and begin to walk toward and into the tunnel. See the lights on the walls and the texture of the floor as you walk through the tunnel. Imagine yourself moving upward.
  7. Just a head of you, about 100 yards, you see a set of glass doors and through those doors you can see a brilliant white light. You feel in your heart that this is the light of the universal consciousness, of God. A feeling of Peace, calm, protection and knowledge fills your insides. With each step closer, you feel more relaxed and at peace..you feel uplifted and connected to this universal energy.
  8. As you approach the doors, they automatically open and invite your soul into this realm of enlightenment. As you pass through you can see an image waiting for you, arms outstretched as if wanting to greet you with a loving hug. At first the image is little blurry and about 50 yards in front of you.
  9. As you get closer to the image, you begin to see their features more clearly. You can see the type of cloths they're wearing, the style of their hair and any decorations they have, such as a hat or feathers, or jewelry.
  10. Finally, standing right in front of this wonderful soul, you can see their face very clearly and you know this is your guide. As you embrace, you can feel their energy surrounding you, both spiritually and physically. You make a mental note of this feeling so that you can recognize it when you return and feel your guide during your conscious state.
  11. The remainder of this meditation is up to the individual. You can ask their name, ask them what your purpose is in this lifetime. What lessons you're here to learn or what karma you need to resolve. Or how you know them, what their relationship is to you.
  12. When you have concluded your visit, make sure you thank them deeply for their gift of service and protection to you. Thank them for coming here during this meditation to meet you and/or visit with you. Give them a goodbye hug, then turn and head back for the tunnel.
  13. Imagine yourself passing through the glass doors and heading back down to your meditative space. Imagine your soul walking through the door to your room, and seeing your physical body right where you left it. As your soul steps back inside your spiritual body, all the visions sensations and answers you received merge with your physical brain and are automatically stored into your con  [report anonymous abuse]  [ accepted]

Animal Guide Meditation

Meeting Your Animal Guides There are many ways to finding out what your animal guide or guides are. But when you make the journey, it is best to meet one at a time in order to make the most of the visit. My favorite way and most recommend is through a special meditation journey. That is, a meditation with a specific purpose and intent. As usual, grab your journal so you can write down your experience as soon as you've finished. You don't want to forget anything.   When you have completed your journey, start your research about your particular animal. You might want to pull in their essence during your daily events, so pick a calendar, a picture, a statue or whatever you like.   The most important part to this meditation is to keep an open mind. Don't go into this with preconceived ideas or perceptions!   Animal Guide Meditation Since this is a special meditation, you may want to prepare your meditation space in a special way. Add a few ritualistic events, such as lighting a white candle and saying a prayer stating your intent for this meditative session. You may want to decorate your space with several animal statues or books about a variety of animals. Once you meet your animal guide, you can remove these generic items and replace them with specific ones of your personal animal spirit(s).   Once you are all set and prepared, this is what you do. Take your time, try to imagine as much detail as possible. And it can't be stressed enough how important it is not to go into this meditation with pre-conceived ideas about what you would LIKE your guide to be. Keep an open mind and an open heart.

  1. Sit in a comfortable position, one that you can sustain for about 30-45 minutes.
  2. Close your eyes and take in a deep cleansing breath. Fill your lungs to their fullest capacity. Then release the breath through your mouth and push all the air out of your body.

See the lights on the walls and the texture of the floor as you walk through the tunnel. Imagine yourself moving upward.
  7. Just ahead you see the opening to the tunnel and as you reach the top, you realize you are standing on a ledge high above your town. You feel propelled to raise your arms and step off the cliff. At the very second you leave the cliff, your astral body morphs into a beautiful bird and you begin to fly westward toward the Pacific.
  8. Imagine the landscape passing below you, the mountains, rivers, forests and deserts. Imagine your soul flying over the coastline of California and out over the ocean. Now turn your wings a little to the north, flying toward the center of the northern pacific.

I love to work with my animals guide....I think they are my favorite because of how I feel about animals. But I do try to work with all my guides.

I am not sure if I have seen any of my guides yet I can't imagine a werewolf being my guide or totem but they don't seem to talk to me.

I have been having a lot of pagan dreams where I am meeting elders and seeing ancient and new books they are very interesting.
