The first thing you should know is that each and every one of us has “besties on the other side,” as MaryAnn puts it—and that includes you!

connecting with your guides

Once you establish a connection with your guides, beautiful shifts start to take place. You become a vessel for clear guidance; you’re soothed by an inner sense of knowing that you’re on the right track. And manifesting with your spirit guides can bring even more miracles into your life.

To help you establish that spiritual connection, I got some expert tips from my soul sister and go-to medium, MaryAnn DiMarco. This Big Talk is a crash course in how to manifest with your spirit guides.

manifest with your spirit guides

During this Big Talk, MaryAnn said something that gave me chills. Really take this in as you get ready to manifest with your spirit guides …

Gabby Bernstein and MaryAnn DiMarco

“Our spirit guides want us to know that our storyline already lives within us,” MaryAnn said. “We have access to our own inner knowing, healing and guidance. Your guides are always saying, ‘You have this information. We’re going to help you access it by giving you guidance, signs and symbols.’ And then you have to act on it! Free will is a big deal in manifestation.”

In other words, manifesting is a collaborative process. And there are 5 steps you can take to manifest with your spirit guides.

MaryAnn gives a detailed description of each step on today’s Big Talk. I also want you to have a crystal-clear description of the steps at your fingertips.

Check it out, and come back to it anytime you need a reminder of how to get aligned with your spirit guides.

5 steps to manifest

Step 1

get into gratitude

When you get into an energy of gratitude, you become more trusting. As you learn to trust your spirit guides, you deepen your relationship with them.

Step 2


Want your spirit guides to answer a question for you? Ask them! A beautiful way to do this is by writing. At the top of a piece of paper, write, Thank you, guides of the highest truth and compassion, for revealing to me what I need to know. Then allow your guides to write through you. Free-write whatever comes to mind, without changing anything. Trust that you are being guided to the answers.

Step 3


After you’ve asked for guidance, practice active listening. You might want to sit in meditation or do some calming breathwork. You can even take a walk and focus on connecting with your guides as you move. Just allow for some stillness and space in a way that feels good to you, and open your heart to receive guidance.

Step 4


Once you’ve asked for guidance and received it, the ball is in your court. Act on the guidance you’ve received. Remember, free will is a big deal in manifestation. Manifesting is not a passive process, and taking spiritually aligned action plays a big role in magnetizing your desires to come to you.

Step 5

chill out

After you’ve asked for guidance, practice active listening. You might want to sit in meditation or do some calming breathwork. You can even take a walk and focus on connecting with your guides as you move. Just allow for some stillness and space in a way that feels good to you, and open your heart to receive guidance.
