How to Connect With Spirit

Whether you are interested in meditation, energy healing, card readings, or receiving spiritual guidance in general from your spiritual team, there are three essential steps to take any time you consciously connect with spirit. These steps will not only create a clearer connection with spirit, but they will also get you centred and will serve to set boundaries and protect you.

Interested in connecting with your spiritual guides for guidance? Before you begin your meditation, card reading, or other method of spiritual connection, be sure to take these three steps first! Inside this article, I am sharing three essential steps to take before you connect with spirit. Read all about them here!

How to Connect With Spirit

(1) Set Boundaries

Anytime you decide to connect with spirit on the conscious level, it is essential that you protect yourself. You always want to ensure that you are connecting to energies that are there for your highest good. And by doing so, you are setting boundaries by clarifying who you want to communicate with or receive guidance from. Boundary setting is important because anyone can attempt to communicate with you when you do not have boundaries in place. 

To begin, you can ask Archangel Michael to come forward. I ask him to watch over me whenever I meditate, heal, or do readings. You can say, “Archangel Michael, please watch over me as I _____________ (insert activity here) to ensure only my highest good comes through [if I am connecting with another person, I also add, “and the highest good of _________”].”

Stating my intention to connect with only those in alignment with my highest good is often all I need to do for this step.

(2) Ground Yourself

Next, after you set your boundaries, it’s time to ground yourself. Grounding assists you in getting centred, focused, and present before you connect with spirit. I know when I am ungrounded, I am often scatterbrained, and my mind goes all over the place. Grounding assists me in getting focused and connected to the present moment. 

Grounding also provides you with an opportunity to release anything no longer serving you to the centre of the earth. Clearing your energy field before connecting with spirit and anyone else’s energy is essential. You want to be as clear a vessel as possible before working with anyone else.

To ground yourself, visualize a cord of energy connecting you from your root chakra down into the centre of the earth. Next, imagine the earth’s energy travelling up from the centre of the earth through your cord into your body. I like to visualize this energy as bright red energy. Choose any colour that represents the earth’s energy to you. Then imagine the things that are no longer serving you as an energy. Give it a colour. And visualize this energy releasing down the cord into the centre of the earth where it is cleansed. Continue to visualize the earth’s energy coming up into your body from the earth for a few moments.

(3) Connect to Source Energy

After you ground yourself, it’s time to connect to source energy. When you consciously connect to source energy, you open a channel to receive spiritual guidance. Connecting with source energy will assist you in having a clearer connection with spirit. 

To get started, visualize a column of light energy from above coming down through your crown chakra. You may see or choose a colour that represents source energy for you. For me, I see this energy as a golden/white shimmering energy. Visualize this light energy travelling down into your body. Next, visualize earth’s energy and source energy swirling together in your heart chakra. Visualize a small amount of earth’s energy going up through your crown chakra and a small amount of source energy travelling down the rest of your body through your grounding cord. Continue to see these energies meeting in the heart chakra and flowing through the body for several minutes. 

When you are done, open your eyes. And repeat the following affirmation: “I am protected, grounded, and connected.”

Next Steps

You are now protected, grounded, and connected to source energy. Next, it’s time to proceed with your card reading, clairvoyant reading, energy healing, meditation, direct writing exercise, etc. There are many ways to connect with spirit. Choose the method that speaks to you. 

At the end of your session, be sure to disconnect from the other person (if you are working with someone else). And always thank Archangel Michael and your spiritual team for their guidance and assistance with your session.

And there you have three steps to assist you with connecting with spirit. I use these three steps daily. Whenever I am doing energy healing, card readings, intuitive readings, meditating, writing, or any other time I want to connect with spirit and my higher self, I make the intention to protect, ground, and connect myself.
