How Do I Know If My Guides Are Contacting Me?
By Katie IndiCrow, 10/19/2016
A common question that I get from people working on opening up to their spiritual selves is, “How do I know if my spirit guides are contacting me?” Like most things in the spiritual world, who you are and which symbols are meaningful to you will largely determine the pattern that these interactions will take. There aren’t any set in stone ways that spirit communication does or does not occur. That said, there are some types of contact that are commonly experienced in the opening process as people learn to listen and co-operate with their team. Here are a few of the most common ones that might be occurring with you.
Physical responses like chills, goosebumps, and tapping
As most of you probably know, when we are in the presence of spirit our bodies can have a physical response like getting chills or goosebumps. The energetic shift instigated by their presence makes our hair stand on end! Other people feel a warm, loving feeling like an embrace or a hand on their arm or cheek. Commonly, these very same sensations can indicate that our guides are offering validation, love, and support to us. Are you contemplating a major life shift and all of a sudden you feel a strand of cold energy moving up and down your legs or spine? That’s very likely validation from your guide that this is a good direction for you to go.
Hearing words, your name, or a buzz in your ear
Similar to feeling shifts in energy when spirit enters your environment, you can also hear them. So many people experience a buzzing (like a bee) or a ringing in their ears as indications that their guides are present. It’s like your body is saying, “Oh hey – there is someone in your presence you need to pay attention to. Listen up!” Another common way that our guides try to talk to us is through clairaudience. They’ll say our names in our ears or speak key words or sentences to us. This can be SCARY. When I was 16, my first guide tried to contact me by silencing super loud environments and speaking my name to me. He would just call, “Katie. Kaaaaaatie.” At the time, this scared the crap out of me and I shut communication down in that way. I’ve heard similar stories from others who would hear their guides trying to talk to them and feel thrown off by the unexpected voices. If this is happening to you and you want to a) ensure it’s a guide talking to you and b) refine this method, I would recommend that you declare yourself open to speak only to high vibrational entities.
Feathers and numbers
Another way that people experience communication with their guides is through the appearance of feathers and number patterns. Similar to the validation experience through feeling, guides can also communicate with us through feathers. Having a deep thought and you come to a feather? It’s possible that is a message of support or reassurance from your guide. Seeing feathers everywhere you go? You’re supported and very likely on the right path. Numbers and number combinations often operate according to the same principle. For example, the number 1111 that many people are seeing now represents the opening of a new beginning or new journey which is resultant from your thoughts. It’s a, “You’re on the right path”.
This is a fun one and most definitely a key way that I get messages in my day to day life. Ever listen to a song and all of a sudden you zone in on lyrics that seem to provide an answer or some form of support to you and the situation you’re going through? Have a song stuck in your head that you don’t even really listen to but is oddly relevant to your situation? Hear the same song everywhere you go (that isn’t a new pop standard)? There’s a good chance that you are receiving love, support, and/or information from your guides this way. One time I had flown to Ireland for Christmas vacation. Being a TA at the time, I had a set of exams with me which I was supposed to correct over the holiday (yeah right). On the flight back, I put the tests in my big suitcase which went in cargo. Guess whose suitcase didn’t arrive for a week? Mine. One day while I was SWEATING it about the situation the phrase, “Peg, it will come back to you” from Steely Dan’s ‘Peg’ started repeating in my mind and I got warm chills. In that moment, I knew that the suitcase would come back. Sure enough, it did.
I will conclude this piece by reiterating that these are only a few of the many possible methods that spirit may be using to contact you. If you feel spirit is contacting you in a way that doesn’t appear on this list, you’re probably right! Don’t discount a message if it’s not coming through in any of the ways described here. If you’re in question, listen to your heart. It’s never wrong.
