How to Talk to Your Spirit Guides

I have a very cool topic for you today: How to talk to your spirit guides.

I believe that we all have entities, guides, ancestors, angels, beings of light who support us, guide us and surround us.

It’s said that we each have an angel on either side of us, and we also have guides — maybe a spirit who has been with us in lifetimes before, an ancestor who can support us, someone we knew in our lifetime.

These beings of light are there to support, guide and protect us all the time. We always have a relationship with this beings, but it’s up to us to decide whether we want to have a dialogue with them and let their presence be known. We have free will when it comes to that.

It’s important to understand that, because a lot of people say, “I don’t hear my guides, I don’t know if they’re there, I don’t get support when I need it.” That is a reflection of disbelief and the active NOT allowing, which blocks the connection.

Your guides are always there. They are always supporting you. But they cannot come in unless you ask. They can’t come in without your free will — unless you’re in a life-threatening situation, in which case a guide can come in without you asking.

If this is something you’re into, I want to help you begin communicating with your own spirit guides. If you’re not into it, you can press pause and go to one of my other videos.

My hope is that if you’re here watching this video, it’s for a reason — likely your guide brought you here!

So, as a conduit for these entities, I want to give you a greater understanding of how you can have a relationship with them.

The first thing to know is that you need to have just a little faith that you have one or more guides who exist beyond your physical experience and who’s there to support you.

With that desire you can begin to ask for help. Asking from a place of allowing and acknowledgment. I like to ask by thanking them:

“Thank you, guides, of the highest truth and compassion, for showing me what I need to know. Thank you for leading me in the right direction. Thank you for helping me release this resentment. Thank you for helping me heal my physical body.”

You can thank them for whatever it is you need—you don’t have to follow those exact words. Nor do you have to call them guides! If you think of your guides as angels, you can say that.

Then I like to take that prayer and bring it into my meditation. I’ll sit in my meditation for as long as it takes to feel that presence. The way I feel the presence is that my hands will begin to tingle and I’ll feel a warmth throughout my body. I feel my breath relax and I become more at ease.

In that stillness, that place of receptivity, I’ll hear their guidance. Sometimes I hear it as an audible sound. Sometimes it’s a knowing. And sometimes it comes through when I’m writing in my journal and inspired words begin to flow.

If you’re new to this practice, writing is a fantastic way to connect. After your prayer and meditation, write at the top of the page: Thank you, guides of the highest truth and compassion, for showing me right I need to know.

Let your pen flow. Let whatever needs to come through, come through – ideas, stories, topics, inspired visions, things you may not have thought of on your own, will start to come through.

Another way to stay in touch with your guides is to ask for a sign. Say, “If I’m on the right track, show me…” and choose a sign. Don’t overthink it: Whatever pops into your head is right.

Asking the guides to show you a sign will be a clear moment of recognizing they’re with you and supporting you.

You might also notice that you can see evidence of your guides in your day-to-day life. I’ll often see their presence as little sparks of light, like tinsel in the sky. My Zen den in my office is filled with their presence — I have a friend whose young daughter likes to go up there because she says that’s where the fairies are.

Little kids are very much connected to their guides still because they haven’t created the barrier of disbelief that blocks them from that connection.

If you want to know the name of your guides (or one of your guides), you can sit in meditation and ask your guide’s name. The first name that comes to you IS THE NAME. Do not question it.

My guides revealed their names to me when I was in my early 20s. I’ve never questioned it. I’ve met with mediums who have said, “Your guide Peter is here,” and I already knew that — I’d known it for years.

Trusting your own psychic abilities and trusting in your relationship with your guides is extremely important.

If you want to deepen your relationship to your guides, I recommend reading my new book, The Universe Has Your Back. The book is all about strengthening your connection to the Universe, which includes all spiritual beings. The exercises and lessons in the book will greatly help you in this way.

I imagine this topic will bring up a lot of conversation in the comments, and I welcome all of it! Let me know what you hear, what your guides’ names may be.

If you have questions, let me know! I absolutely love and adore this topic and I want to help you create this relationship so you have a lifelong companion.

I hope this serves you.

  2. Thanks for this insight. I was playing a game on my phone and “spirit guide” came to mind and I found this msg.
    Thx again.

  3. This is all very new to me, but while listening to your description in “Super Attractor” I was reminded of a spiritual connection I made a few years ago. I lacked the language – and, frankly, the belief set – to know what I was experiencing, at the time. The instant I recalled the connection, I already “knew” the name of the particular guide. There was a certain familiarity and casualness to our relationship because I realized that it was sparked much earlier but I has missed, or misinterpreted it. Because of this familiarity, I asked if I could call her by a shortened, somewhat endearing, version of the name I already new. I even apologized for my ignorance, and blamed it on being brand new to such things. And, upon your advice, Gabby, I asked her for some kind of confirmation that A) she was in fact a guide to me and B) that this shortened version of her name was OK. I asked specifically that she show me that name 3 times, just to satisfy the skeptic in me – and that I see it soon enough and close enough together that I couldn’t chock it up to my imagination. I went for a long bike ride, which is often a meditative practice for me. Nothing happened for the entire ride and then, a few blocks from home came the name in print, three times in very rapid succession, and in a somewhat humorous way (I had just said aloud, partly in frustration and disbelief, “Show me SOMETHING. Show me anything. Show me you have a sense of humor. I don’t care, just show me something.” Months later she still, often but not always, reveals herself in the same humorous way. Now, she communicates with me so clearly, and so obviously that most of my doubt has been assuaged. MOST. Can you help put the remaining tiny bit of doubt to rest? Does this experience, as I’ve described it, seem to be in alignment with your understanding of our interaction with guides?
    Thanks so much,
    Scott

  4. I’ve been trying to get in contact with my spirit guide but I don’t know if its really working. I tried the writing thing and I don’t think it worked. I’m going to try again soon. I’ve tried the meditations but never really knew if they were there. I’m uncertain of what my path is right now and I just want some advice. Do you have anything for me?

  5. Im a 15 year old girl and i know somethings about the spirtual world and spirt guides but i wanna know about my past and i can really get in contact with my spirt guide and i really want to.My family is hiding something from me if i ask my spirt guide once i finally meet he or she then can i ask them to tell me about my past.

  6. Thank you for this. I’ve been confused if I was on the right path. This morning I was touched on my right shoulder not really understanding why

  7. Can you ask questions like “will this happen” type stuff? I am a baby witch and trying to contact my guides and looking for signs as well.

  8. my guides name is ella and i met her through my psychic friend. i talk to her constently but never really got a reply back. now i know how i can talk to her and get some answers. thank you so much.

    1. It’s possible, Caitlin. If you’re not sure how to interpret the guidance that you’re receiving from your guides, then Gabby suggests turning to your spiritual practice for clarity. Prayer is the medium for asking for guidance and meditation is medium for receiving guidance. Here is a meditation that you might like to try: https://gabbybernstein.com/spirit-guides-meditation/. xoxo

  9. Hi Gaby!

    Thank you for the info. I recently had a very intense experience before the pandemic and I felt the chills and voices, smells and changes of temperature, synchronicity and signs in my phone and electronic artifacts. Now I can not hear them any longer why? Thank you.

  10. i had an imaginary friend as a kid and i saw her while i was astroprojecting very recently she was protecting me but i haven’t seen her since i was a kid other than that, she always used to protect me and talk to me when i was sad, this may be completely wrong but i think she may be my spirit guide, do you think she could be my spirit guide or am i just being stupid?

    1. It’s possible, Darcy. Any time you’re unsure how to interpret the guidance that you are receiving, it’s an opportunity to turn to your spiritual practice for clarity.

  11. Gabby,

    Do you know why answers from entities/guardians are sometimes contradictory? They will say
    one thing today and the opposite tomorrow or next week.

    Thanks

    1. Thank you for your question, Genevieve. We’re working on a new blog post which will answer this question, stay tuned!

      In the meantime, any time we’re unsure about how to interpret our guidance, we can always return to our spiritual practice for clarity. Prayer is the medium for asking and meditation is the medium for listening.

      xoxo

  12. Hey Gabby!
    I am new to witchcraft and Wicca and I was wondering if my spirit guide may have drawn me to it? one day a few months ago I randomly had an urge to research Wicca and here I am haha! I also wanted to say, thank you so much! I am using this to help connect me to my spirit guide and so far its a HUGE help!

    1. Thank you for your question, Greer. We’re always being guided and supported. If you haven’t seen them, here are some additional posts and practices that I think you will appreciate:

  13. Hello, so lately I’ve been more interested in my spirituality and they say that when you get a lot of ringing in your ears it’s your guides trying to contact you. And so I was wondering your perspective on that. I would also like to mention that when it has happened I’ve fully allowed myself to listen to it and concentrate on it and let them know if it is my guides that I’m ready to listen whole heartedly. Do you have any tips on meditation tips for a very distracted mind?

    1. Yes, Onalis! Here are some additional posts and practices that I think you’ll appreciate and resonate with:
      /spirit-guides/
      /spirit-guides-meditation/
      /angels/
      As far as meditation tips: practice and patience!
      Sending you big love. xoxo

  14. Hi read your article. Amazing.
    I am new in spirituality.
    Is there a difference between chanelling and talking to spirit guides?
    Or is it the same

    1. Great question, Sneha. Often times channeling is allowing spirit / divine guidance to speak through you whereas talking to your spirit guides is more like having a conversation with guides of the highest truth and compassion. For more clarity you may want to check out: Rebecca Rosen’s blog (rebeccarosen.com) and her book Spirited, as well as MaryAnn DiMarco’s book, Believe, Ask, Act. xoxo

  15. Hi Gabby,

    I’ve been manifesting for 3 weeks and I’ve been manifesting my soulmate. I do speak to my psychic about my soulmate who I am in no communication with. My psychic always tells me that they feel he will reach out to me but it’s all to do with divine timing. Whilst I’ve been on this manifesting journey I’ve been seeing a lot of white feathers, angel numbers as well as my candle turning blue flame on the recent new moon. I’ve been doing meditation for a specific person from YouTube. Today I felt the urge to want to gain insight in what I should do in order to help me on this journey of waiting for my soulmate to return back to me. In my mind I called upon my spirit guides and I asked what am I supposed to do… I don’t know if this is them connecting with me but the image of the youtube video I watch – the mediation for a specific person… came straight into my head. Do you think my spirit guides are communicating and telling me to watch this video and continue to do this or am I just imagining this all….

    1. Hi there, If you’re not sure how to interpret these experiences you might find it helpful to return to your meditation practice to ask for clarity.

  16. Hi Gabby,

    I’m one of those people who has a positive out look on like but I have a negative outlook on myself. I truly believe in spirits and guides but I am scared of my out come. In my house, when I go down the stairs, I feel this dark figure pushing me. Then when I make it by the door, whatever it was is in front of me and just staring at me. If felt like that and I always feel that way because I tried to block everything of this out due to fear. I hate feelings of unhappiness but lately I have been wanting to be more spiritual with myself and one day be able to see spirits but due to fear I can not. I just want some advice into how to really deepen my connection with my spirit and how to feel more safe and not scared all the time.

    And another question, I feel my soul leave my body whenever I pass an Attic in my house and my grandmothers house but it’s more intense at my grandmothers house. When I was little I heard the basement door open and slam when everyone is sleep and upstairs. I remember seeing a little girl in our shed one time. She had pale skin and blue eyes with dark black hair. She pointed to the house and I knew I had to run inside but she wasn’t there and I ignored it. Was my mind playing tricks with me or am I really just scared of the outcomes so badly that I have blocked my sense of anything.

    My name isn’t Lily, I apologize but I am just scared of what I feel will happen to me if I use my real name for some reason.

    1. Hi Lily, you can say a mantra for protection, such as: Aad Guray Nameh https://gabbybernstein.com/ Jugaad Guray Nameh https://gabbybernstein.com/ Sat Guray Nameh https://gabbybernstein.com/Siri Guru Dayvay Nameh (Translation: I bow to the Primal Wisdom https://gabbybernstein.com/ I bow to the Wisdom through the Ages https://gabbybernstein.com/ I bow to the True Wisdom https://gabbybernstein.com/I bow to the great, unseen Wisdom). Know that you are safe, supported and guided, especially with your angels and guides.

      You can also call on a spirit guide of the highest truth and compassion to clear your space and protect you and your home. I also suggest checking out Rebecca Rosen’s blog (rebeccarosen.com) and her book Spirited, as well as MaryAnn DiMarco’s book, Believe, Ask, Act. Don’t forget to rule out non-paranormal possibilities as well, and please consult a therapist or doctor if your feelings of sadness persist.
      xoxo

    2. ‘My name isn’t lily’ You should trust your instincts more. If you feel you need to do something, do it. Don’t second guess yourself, if you want to try to be more spiritual go for it. Yes, it will be scary at first, but like all things there is always a silver lining. Everything always is to some extent good or beautiful. Being spiritual is one of those things.

      Also, get some people to get rid of that thing at the top of the stairs. If it trys to hurt you, it does not like you or want to protect you.

  17. It all started when I had this loud ringing in my ear about 7 months ago. I felt as if I was going to pass out. Rewind 7 months later ive seen multiple Drs and specialists who say nothing is wrong with my hearing, till this day I feel some pressure more on my left then my right but ive basically just come to terms with something is wrong with my ears and it seems no one can do anything about it. I was at target a few months back and all of a sudden this weird friction frequency vibration started happening in my ear I had no idea what it was it freaked me out to the point where I ended up walking out of the store and leaving my cart that had items I wanted to purchase. I couldn’t understand anything that was happening! To make my story short I will just share a list of things that have happened to me. 7 years ago I had this dream/vision that my aunt who was not doing well at the time came to me to tell me she was leaving now and wanted to send me a message i couldn’t help but be confused because It was so vivid I thought she was back home from the hospital but what made me realize this was deeper was when I recognized the woman she was standing next to, my grandmother, her only sister. Who we lost 10 years ago. My vision/dream was validated after she gave me the message of what she wanted of me I immediately knew she was gone. I called my dad around 4am and he asked if I had heard the news and I said yes!! She just told me!! This is probably the biggest (coincidence) ive ever experienced. Never truly understanding in this moment maybe it was indeed something more. I was 21 when she died im 28 now, ive heard many voices my name be called no one there ive even had 2 very clear “valerie” right in my ear that made me run outside the front door so fast!. I asked God to specifically give me a sign which let me tell you was so incredibly clear it was unbelievable ever since that sign I have been open about recieving this gift and also curious to know what will come of it. I have been noticing my ability to randomly have these visions that come at the rarest moments. Here is a example I had a vision that my dad was giving me money I specifically remember $100 bills in his hands. It made me stop in my steps and say that was weird because ive never been the type of daughter to ask him for money or expect it for that matter. So I carried on with my day. I ended up seeing him that evening and we were having a deep conversation about life and how he wanted to be a better person and better grandfather to his grandchildren and It was sweet that he was taking accountability for some of his actions. I never expect my dad to be a certain way with ny kids because I love him the way he Is and never try to change him. He reached in his pocket and pulled out a wad of money and handed me over $300 and he said please hunny I want you to habe this I was more in shock anoit my vision hours prior. It was unbelievable to me I refused to take it but you know how that went he stuck it in my hand and didn’t want to hear if ands or buts……. I have so many more experiences that require further details and another 14 pages. I guess what im trying to figure out is am I loosing it? Should I be concerned? Is this a gift from god? Whay do I do with these abilities? What is my why and my purpose??? Reading this article has given me comfort to know im not crazy but I still wonder the question. I would love ppls feedback and testimonials.

    1. Valerie, here is a passage from Super Attractor that you might find helpful:

      “Being willing to connect with your spirit guides opens the door to guidance, but you want to be conscious not to leave the door wide open for any guide to step in. Think about it like this: You’re throwing a party and you want only the most positive and loving people to show up. Therefore, you make a guest list and are sure not to invite anyone who doesn’t support you.

      Similarly, welcoming your guides into your consciousness requires an invitation. If you’re not clear about the type of guides you’re willing to connect to, then it’s possible to attract lower-vibration beings that do not serve your highest good. You decide who you want to invite to the party that is you. My medium mentors have taught me that the best way to begin connecting to our guides is to recite a prayer. One I commonly say is, Thank you, guides of the highest truth and compassion, for revealing to me what I need to know.”

  18. Hello. ‘m kinda new to all of this and I have a friend who tells me I’m on a spiritual journey due to all the recent changes in my life that have been pushed by the universe (job loss, divorce, etc) and she says I have a couple of spirit guides that are ancestral but they don’t really talk to her but though her and she can’t get the message clear. I don’t know how much of this is real or if it’s a big dream. So I though I would start here. What are your thoughts? Advice? Anything you need to know?

  19. Im just starting to want to know my spirit guide, ive always talked to myself and i would respond for the other person but not a certain person. I wish i could talk to my spirit guide but i do not understand how to. I’ve had a lot of emotional trauma and i was hoping my spirit guide could heal me in any way. Any advice?

  20. Hi Gabby,
    I’m having a really critical time in my life emotionally and financially and have cried out to my spirit guides for help.
    This morning I found a small white feather in my hairbrush, from where it could have come from and how it could have got stuck in a faced down brush, I do not know.
    I’m so hoping it’s my guides showing me too keep faith!

  21. I am new to this. I think I was having a conversation where they would respond by making a sort of popping noise by quickly opening and closing a small part of my lips. Any idea?

  22. Hi I’m
    Now doing tarot card reading s and last night after a read my tea light burst into flames I couldn’t put it out my late dad used to worry that I would have a fire do you think it’s a visit from him
    Many thanks Wendy

  23. Hi , I would like to know why all this intuitive feeling of their presence is not known by all. Alot of people get labeled crazy and institutionalized for knowing the truth of life.

    1. Great question, Cheri. We all have free will so some people may choose not to do spiritual work. Everybody is on their own journey and traveling at their own pace! Sat nam, sister! xo

    1. You can absolutely be related to your guides, Karen. Getting grounded in meditation will help you tune into them. xoxo

  24. Hi Gabby,
    I’m 13 going on fourteen! I have a few questions. So I am starting meditation, but don’t really understand how it works. Also I asked my spirit guide his name and it was Julian. At least I was the first name that popped into my mind. I was wondering if you have any ideas on how to grow my relationship with him. Or I believe it’s a him because I did some research. Thank you very much. I hope we can stay in touch.

    1. Hi Vivien,
      So cool that you’re just thirteen and already beginning a meditation practice. Here are some meditations to get you started: https://gabbybernstein.com/beginners-guide-to-meditation/. Also, if you haven’t read my book, Add More ~Ing To Your Life, I think you will love it.
      Finally, to grow your relationship with your spirit guide, Julian, you can continue practicing the Spirit Guide meditation or use some of the other methods that I talk about here: https://gabbybernstein.com/spirit-guides/
      Keep shining your bright light! xoxo

  25. I have seemingly been given my spirit guides name but i also have a female spirit who came through my writing swearing at me n saying im not a good person. She came to me through my spirit board which i no longer use. She told me a lot about herself, including that she loved her life n was murdered. Family members have warned me that she is watching me n is dangerous. That she is a witch, a demon. She is jealous of me they tell me because i remind her of the light. I dont want to give up writing but im worried. What can i do to be rid of this spirit please?

If you’re not clear about the type of guides you’re willing to connect to, then it’s possible to attract lower-vibration beings that do not serve your highest good. You decide who you want to invite to the party that is you. My medium mentors have taught me that the best way to begin connecting to our guides is to recite a prayer. One I commonly say is, Thank you, guides of the highest truth and compassion, for revealing to me what I need to know.”

      You can call on a spirit guide of the highest truth and compassion to clear your space and protect you and your home. I also suggest checking out Rebecca Rosen’s blog (rebeccarosen.com) and her book Spirited, as well as MaryAnn DiMarco’s book, Believe, Ask, Act.

  26. I have twice had visits from my deceased Grandad who I felt guilty for not going to his funeral.My latesr visit was just to say you will be ok,at the time I was unsure of the meaning of this but when struck by a nasty virus and taking a month to get my energy and health back,his words kept me going as when a child if my asthma was bad I was afraid to go to sleep in case I never woke up.Only as an adult have I told my daughters this as it has been with me all my life.Thankyou Grandad for watching ovet me.We had a pet too who used to visit and send signs but for a while now nothing.Do pets move onto other plains or more work.He was very intuitive with all my family and even lay behind my daughter as she had a seizure giving an odd wail,the paramedics couldnt believe it.We all miss him so much and have beautiful memories of the thoughtful loving dog he was.Thankyou

    1. Wow, Sue. These sound like very powerful experiences. I’m glad to hear that the signs that you’ve received from your deceased grandad and pet provided you with comfort and support. May you continue to feel their loving presence. Thank you for sharing! xoxo

  27. Hi Gabby,
    The way I talk to my guides is I meditate then I write the message you’ve suggested on a piece of paper. Then I hold a pen in my hand and my hand starts moving and writing. They will only scribble unless I ask a question. Is this normal? I also reached for my phone at one point and they began using my keyboard to type messages. I’ve read posts that say guides don’t write clear messages, but all the messages I get are pretty clear (words or sentences).I guess I’m just worried I’m doing something wrong? I also try to ground myself after and find it extremely difficult ( I try the zip technique and stomping my feet). I’ll be grounded for 30 min then next time I get a text my hand gets a tingly feeling and there will be more messages for me (as in my hand will being typing).Please give me some insight. Thank you so much for everything you do! I appreciate it so much.

    1. Wow, it sounds like you’ve had some powerful experiences, Nina. It might be helpful for you to return to your meditation practice and ask the universe for clarity regarding the messages and sensations that you are experiencing. I also suggest checking out Rebecca Rosen’s blog (rebeccarosen.com) and her book Spirited, as well as MaryAnn DiMarco’s book, Believe, Ask, Act.

      Please consult a doctor if you have any other physical symptoms.

      Sending you big love! xoxo

  28. I’m 41 soon to be 42. I have been on and off again with spirituality because I’ve had become frustrated that I could hear , see, or sense and spirit guides of any kinds. I’ve ask for signs, for them to come into my dreams but nothing so I would give up and then months would go by or years and I would do more research in hope this time was my chance to fail again. Well here I am trying again and this time am hopefully going to get somewhere . If you have any ideas as to why I’m struggling in this category, it would be a great help. I want to believe but I can’t believe fully until I get some kind of proof. knowing this proof allows me (in my mind) to fully commit and not be skeptical.

    Thank you 🙂

    1. Hi Melanie,
      Sometimes our expectations create an energetic block. An important part of manifesting is surrendering the outcome. Here are some practices that you might find helpful:

  29. Hi Gabby, I’ve started meditating daily for just over 2 weeks. I’ve done it before and felt someone with me and got a bit scared but after a few readings I’ve been told that I can talk to my guides if I want and it’s nothing to be scared of. I’ve always felt the presence of them with me from a young age and know I’m protected. Since starting meditation again and with some commitment I feel a connection getting stronger each day. Today I met a group of guides and I sobbed the whole way through my meditation. Is it normal to have a few guides with you and to cry? My feeling is I cried out of relief – that’s how I felt and I felt warm. I also felt I knew some of the guides – is it normal to know them as family members? There were some spirits that didn’t come forward – they were just there. What would my next steps be now? I’m excited to learn more.
    Thanks

    1. Hi Sukhi,

      Your spirit guides can be family members. As far as next steps, here is a passage from my book Super Attractor that you might find helpful:

      “Being willing to connect with your spirit guides opens the door to guidance, but you want to be conscious not to leave the door wide open for any guide to step in. Think about it like this: You’re throwing a party and you want only the most positive and loving people to show up. Therefore, you make a guest list and are sure not to invite anyone who doesn’t support you.

      Similarly, welcoming your guides into your consciousness requires an invitation. If you’re not clear about the type of guides you’re willing to connect to, then it’s possible to attract lower-vibration beings that do not serve your highest good. You decide who you want to invite to the party that is you. My medium mentors have taught me that the best way to begin connecting to our guides is to recite a prayer. One I commonly say is, Thank you, guides of the highest truth and compassion, for revealing to me what I need to know.”

  30. Hi Gabby, I have been following your practices for a short time now. After reading your book super attracted I immediately joined the miracle membership. I’ve gone off path with what’s happening in the world but I promised myself I would realign and reconnect.
    Well last night after hearing of a close friend not doing so good I went to sleep and smelled toast (quirky guide that likes toast) he has always shown up when I’m feeling super anxious I know because I smell toast. Anyways I began to pray to Michael and the angel of mercy and to god to protect me and my family close friends and society when the most powerful colbolt blue light appeared.
    I had the loudest ringing in my ears and I felt an energy pass through me and my head began floating… I seen strobes of dark lines through this blue light and I began asking for the golden light of love…
    I was pretty freaked out as I wasn’t sleeping but lost all control until my baby girl held my head and it all went away apart from seriously loud pitch ringing which went on intermittently for hours yet I feel immense calmness!
    I’m a little nerved to pray again but I think it’s because I’m having trouble understanding what message they were trying to convey, if you have any suggestions I’m so open to your guidance.
    Much love!

    1. Hi Claire,

      You can call on a spirit guide of the highest truth and compassion to help you understand the message that was trying to be conveyed. I also suggest checking out Rebecca Rosen’s blog (rebeccarosen.com) and her book Spirited, as well as MaryAnn DiMarco’s book, Believe, Ask, Act.

  31. Hi Gabby, I have recently experienced a faint blue cloud like formation, about 1-2 feet in diameter, seems like a flattish oblong type shape, on my ceiling at night (the house is still, lights are off and I am in bed). I am in the house by myself. It doesn’t appear to be a result of a reflection from anything else. Recently, it seems to appear about 10-15mins after the lights are off and seems to stay visible (to me) until dawn…then seems to disappear. I don’t know how long this has been happening, I’m usually a pretty heavy and sound sleeper.

    I feel a bit uncomfortable and unnerved by its presence. Have you or your readers ever experienced this or something similar to it.

    Is this an energy form?
    How do I tell what kind of energy form it is (guide, benevolent, mischievous, malevolent, etc)?
    Is this something to be afraid of?
    Can/how do I communicate with it?
    How do I ask it to leave or harness when it appears?

    Sorry for all the questions…I have never experienced this before
