When the door to the spirit world first opens, it can be very exciting. Suddenly, we can access a dimension much greater than what we are used to seeing on earth.
Anyone can access the spirit world, but often access comes only when one is truly willing and ready for the experience. Sometimes, however, spirits can come to us without a formal invitation, like a departed loved one.
Often times, when a spirit visits us in this way, it is because it has some message or wants to show us something important. Entering the spirit world is definitely stepping into the unknown, so it is important that anyone looking to connect knows how to protect themselves. Communicating with spirits involves a minimum of preparation.
If you are encountering spiritual energy and want to learn more, or if you want to invite a particular spirit into your space, such as a departed loved one, be sure to follow all of these steps and protect yourself before doing spiritualism.
Note: Connection with the spirit world is never 100% secure! So make sure you always exercise caution and follow your gut instincts.
Step 1: protect yourself
This is the most important part of any connection with spirits. Before opening the door to communication, it is important to protect your energy and your space. The best way to do this is to spend time meditating and recharging your energy. You can do this by imagining a beautiful white light surrounding your whole being.
You can also call on your spirit guides and guardian angels for protection or use protective crystals such as amethyst.
Step 2: define a sacred space
If you want to invite a loved one or receive information from a spirit, it is important that you create a sacred space first. This sacred space should allow you to feel safe and free from clutter or distractions.
You can also fill your sacred space with crystals, plants, herbs, candles, and other things that make you feel good. Having a pen and paper can also be helpful if you want to be able to write things down.
Step 3: set your intention
Once in your sacred space, set your communication intention. Be clear about the experience you want to have and be sure to set boundaries and state your intention firmly.
For example, your intention may be-
« I want to connect with (name), I ask to be guided and protected to hear the messages that (name) has for me and for the messages to be delivered smoothly. » I ask my Spirit Guides and Angels to protect me throughout this process and to help me receive all necessary messages.
If you are unsure whether or not the spirit you want to connect with may be harmful, you can call on your spirit guides to act as a “keeper” between the two of you. This is a good option if you are dealing with unfamiliar spirits in your home or if you are new to hooking up.
Remember, when dealing with unfamiliar spirits, it is best to feel the energy first. If you are experiencing negative vibes or are unsure, it is best to bring in an expert or just focus on cleaning your home.
Fear is also not a good state of mind if you want to communicate with spirits effectively, so if you experience apprehension it is better to stop.
Step 4: stay open to messages
After you have set your intention, start speaking to the spirit as if it is already there. Ask him all the questions you want and wait to see if you hear an answer.
Responses from the spirit world may vary, but you may experience bodily sensations, tingling, seeing signs of synchronicity, sparks of light, or hearing audible messages. Stay open to connecting and maybe write down any experiences you see or feel.
The tools to help you receive messages from the spirits are automatic writing, pendulums, and ouija boards.
Pendulums are a great tool for beginners and are much less intimidating than automatic writing or ouija boards, which we don’t recommend for the uninitiated.
During this process, it’s important to know that you might not get your answer right away. Be patient and gentle.
Step 5: close the door
Once you have completed your questions, you must close your « session » by announcing that you are done. You can say goodbye and thank the spirits for their messages.
It is then necessary to clean your space and your aura with sage, crystals or incense. This is very important and is certainly not a step to be forgotten.
While you are cleaning your space, you can recite a mantra or affirmation such as “I am cleaning and protecting this space with light.
Even if you haven’t established a connection, it’s important that you continue to go through this process and log off properly.
Learning to communicate with spirits can be very enlightening. Make sure you take protective measures.
Remember to express your gratitude and thanks.
