Signs From Our Spirit Guides

A look at how our spirit guides give us signs, and how we can contact them to get the answers we are looking for.

What is a spirit guide?

Everybody has spirit guides, who are there to provide us with support in our everyday lives. Those with psychic abilities and who practice mediumship often get help from their spirit guides during psychic readings. Spirit guides are the souls of those who once lived on earth, and have now passed over to the spirit world. They have a higher power and knowledge beyond ours, but because they once lived on earth, they also have an understanding of human life and the difficulties and challenges we face every day.

It is believed that we are assigned spirit guides before we are born, and they are there for us our entire lives, appearing to us in a number of different ways, when they are needed. Spirit guides can come in many different forms; they can be people we knew, such as our loved ones who have passed, or they can be complete strangers, some coming from centuries past.


Traditionally, spirit guides were associated with Native Americans, with their ancestors bringing wisdom to the tribes. Other guides can come in the form on saints or other important historical figures, and they can even come in the form of animals, although these are more like companions, often being the soul of a deceased pet.

The role of our guides is to do just that; guide us through life, providing support and direction when we need it. Sometimes this advice is obvious, but often it can be subtle and come in unexpected ways. Some of these include:

  • Sending signs - If you notice certain synchronicities, such as number patterns, repeated words, or objects of the same colour, it could be a sign from your spirit guide. Sometimes the messages may not be clear, but whatever is being shown to you is something that is important to your life.
  •  Arranging meetings with important people - People come into our lives for a specific reason, usually to teach us an important lesson, and to help us grow. We meet these people in a number of ways, usually by chance, and this is when our spirit guides have helped put them in your path, because the time has come for you to learn the lesson they will teach.
  • Gut feelings - Sometimes you just know something, because you feel it in your gut. You’re not sure why you’re so sure, but you are; this is your spirit guides giving you their support, and letting you know that what you think you know is correct.


Our spirit guides usually come to us, but many people wish to contact their spirit guides themselves, to ask for their guidance and support when they need it most. If you would like to contact your spirit guide, try the following:

  •  Meditate - Take some time out of your busy day, find a quiet, comfortable place, and meditate. Imagine yourself in a room, or in a garden, or anywhere you feel comfortable, and ask your spirit guides to join you. Ask them any questions you may have, and listen to the answers. This may seem strange at first, but the more you practice, the easier it will become, and the stronger your connection will be.
  • Dream - Get into the habit of lucid dreaming, and ask your spirit guides to join you in your dream. Similar to the meditation method, you have control over your environment and what happens, and you can get the answers you need from your guides in your own time.
  • Ask a psychic - Those who regularly practice psychic abilities and mediumship, connecting with their own guides, can help you connect with yours. They can also help communicate with them during a reading, to give you the answers you are seeking. Speak to one of our psychics today.
