How To Meditate And Meet Spirit Guides

This is a great video by innersplendor.com

There are many reasons to meditate. Meditation is a great way to calm the mind and relax the body. This is also one of the best ways to keep your spiritual balance, reduce stress, and to receive psychic information. It is also one of the best ways to meet a spirit guide! Many people are unaware of the presence of spirit guides, but through meditation the awareness can be awakened. This is a great way to contact your spirit guide and feel the loving connection that is shared with the universe. There are many different methods of meditation to use and sometimes it takes trial and error to find the best method that works for you.

A simple method is to find a setting in which you will not be disturbed. You can try some soft meditation music and incense or something else if you prefer. The concept is to release the body’s stress then calm and still the mind.

Start by taking several slow deep cleansing breaths.  Try to feel the tension leave your body. Continue to slow your breathing . Slow deep breaths in and long exhales.Some find it helpful to imagine starting at the feet and working your way up to the top of your head relaxing the muscles. Many people feel it important to imagine in the mind’s eye, a white or rainbow spectrum light surrounding their body for protection. This way they can feel safe in the astral or any other realm they encounter spirits or guides on.

Many people like to create a place to meet these guardians, such as a beach or a creek in the woods, by a lake, in a garden, or on a mountain top. The point is to imagine a place that is appealing to you and visualize it in your mind. This will be your special place to meet your guardians. Once you have created the place in your mind and you are still feeling relaxed, just imagine asking to meet your guardian and then just still the mind and try to be as receptive to what you may see, hear or feel.

This is a process that works differently for everyone. You might feel a sensation or vibration in your body, you might actually hear words, you might see an image of someone or something in your mind’s eye. What is important is to focus on the special connection that is shared. You can ask if there is something you need to know and then again still the mind and listen. You can ask them their name if you do not recognize them. The choices are up to you. Before you finish, thank them and recenter yourself in your minds eye or in other words picture yourself back in your designated meditation place- ie chair,couch, bed, bath.

If this does not work for you the first time do not get discouraged. Meditation and self relaxation is something that takes practice. You can do it and it will work if you are persistent. Remember there are many ways to relax and meditate. Just find a method that works best for you.

Psychic Reading

Psychic reading is an occurrence where one person tries to perceive information and insights using extra-sensory- perception (esp) from a metaphysical realm.  There are various methods and tools per se’ that a  psychic reader may use to provide the reading such as Tarot cards, runes, astrological signs and charts, and numerology and more. There are some psychic readers that use a form of channeling spirits as a medium such as John Edward or Sylvia Brown.  These psychics are usually referred to as being clairvoyant. Most psychics consider themselves to be clairvoyant to a point since it is their own perception that they rely on when providing a reading for someone or for themselves.

A psychic reader that uses Tarot cards will use different lay outs of the cards after the person that they are reading has handled them  or shuffled them. The psychic will then interpret the layout of the cards using them only as tools and a visual aid. A good reader will  use the intuition they receive more so than the exact representation of each card, but will use the card or cards as a point of reference .

A psychic reading using runes is done in a similar way, but usually the runes are cast from a cup or one’s hands on to a cloth and the ones face up are interpreted. Usually, 3 runes would be picked up and interpreted in light of the questions asked but there are other methods as well. Runic divination can be simple or very complex. It is necessary for the reader to be very intuitive and knowledgeable about the runes however.

A psychic reading by numerology  is a breakdown of an individual’s personal numbers or life path number, which are derived from one’s birth-date and or name. From these numbers one can receive insight as to what life experiences or themes will be easy, challenging, and repetitive. Some believe that a soul chooses when to be born and therefore, one could derive a life path number representing the life’s purpose or journey for the soul. The life path number (or soul number) is derived by taking ones entire birth-date -month ,day,and year and adding its sum. The sum is then added until it becomes a single numerical digit.

An astrological psychic reading or an Astrology chart uses the birth-date, the time of birth, and the place of birth (longitude and latitude) to determine the influencing factors of the planets on a person and how those planets affect each other. Horoscopes are derived in the same manner, but usually, the birth- date is what is important there. The method of doing one’s chart is a bit to involved for me to explain here.

Personally, I believe that everyone has psychic ability, but some are more apt than others. I believe that psychic ability is developed and grows stronger just like a muscle. The more you use it and understand it, the stronger it becomes. This psychic ability is an established connection to the metaphysical realm or spirit world. It is really no different than the feeling one gets when trying to connect in a spiritual way. What is different, is how one uses the psychic or spiritual connection as well as the strength of it. It is the intuition and emotion one feels that is perceived as the extra-sensual-perception when doing a reading. It is this perception and not the tools used that separate really good psychics from your average psychic. Even you can develop that esp and open your inner clairvoyant psychic because we all have it to be developed. Just remember, it is like a muscle and everyone has a different measure of strength

What is Tarot

A psychic reading using tarot cards is a commonly used method.  This method takes into account the divinatory meaning of a card and the proximity of other cards in relation to it.  Sometimes if the card is upside down, it weakens the meaning or even reverses it. It depends on the individual psychic giving the reading on how the card is interpreted. Usually, the Psychic has the person being read  handle or shuffle the cards in some manner or does it for them. The cards are then placed into a particular spread and interpreted. There are numerous types of spreads and once again it depends on the individual psychic and his or her preference. Tarot cards have different pictures on them and there are many different kinds of artistic designs and decks one can choose from.

A Tarot deck of cards contains 78 cards divided into two main groups:

22 Major Arcana

The Lesser Arcana is separated into 4 suits: Wands,Cups,Swords, Coins or Pentacles

Wands-represent the element fire, passions, doing or actions

Each suit then has the following cards:

The King, Queen, Knight, Page, or (court cards)  usually represent people in    relation to the reading or question but they can be symbolic as well.

The 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, Ace cards all have meanings as well as they pertain within their respected suit. Some readers will use numerology when interpreting these cards.

The Tarot psychic reading would be given to an individual based on the cards that came up in a particular spread and in relation to the questions that might have been asked. The reader should also receive some information through his or her own metaphysical method.
