Meditation To Meet Your Guides


I thought I would post this exercise as an aid for those of you out there who are struggling to understand the gifts you are discovering. When it all gets a little too confusing and you can recognize your talents and abilities but need to know how or why, then perhaps this may help.

It is a very constructive meditation which can enable you to meet and then acquaint yourselves with any number of spirit guides which may be working for/with you, remember that your guides often change (however you may have one or several which are permanent fixtures) so it is recommended to repeat the same meditation at intervals to see which course your guides are steering you.

If you have meditated before, then you know to take yourself off into a quiet room, turn off your phones and sit quietly concentrating on your breathing for a while, relax physically all your muscles beginning from the feet, all the way up to your shoulders, dispel any thoughts of home life, worries, concerns - place them in a " to do " file - and deal with them later. This works equally well as a led meditation, but is simple enough to memorize and use alone.

Picture yourself in your safe place, (this should be somewhere that you are very familiar with and somewhere which you feel you know so well that is perfectly untouchable, this should also be the same place from which you begin this meditation the next time, pay attention first time round though, as things may change the next.) from here stand up and take steps towards what appears to be a bridge, as you draw closer you realize it is a bridge, slowly observe the structure, size, shape of this bridge and the material from which it is made and the color. It also crosses a stream. Over the bridge you go and as you step down on the other side you notice that there is only one path and it is leading to the right. It is a shingle path, but on either side is a grass verge, you can choose to stay on the gravelly path or step up onto the grassy banks to walk, it's up to you.

On your right is a rushing, bubbling mountain stream and to your left are tall trees and woodland. Wildlife and birds make themselves known from within the woodland, what do you see?

On along the path until eventually it ends, before you stands a wall. A large granite block wall stands in front of you and upon investigation, there appears no way through. Walk around the wall to the left and you eventually come to a large gate built into it, make a mental note as to whether the gate is open, shut, locked, ajar. And when you can push it open enter.

As you step through the gate you enter into a garden, this is YOUR garden, be still for a moment and merely observe what you can see, notice the flowers, the layout, the fragrance, on your right is a path which leads to the foot of the garden and half way down the path is a bench, at some point during your exploration you may sit on the bench for a rest, but when that is is entirely your choice too. Now, off you go and explore your garden, make sure you rest on the bench - or somewhere- in your garden, and if you meet anybody there be sure and ask them who they are and what they're doing.

You can stay in your garden exploring for about ten minutes, you will now when it's time to leave.

To return from this meditation be sure to say thank you and goodbye to whomever you have met, retrace your steps through the garden gate and back along the path to the bridge, cross it and once back at your safe place, wrap yourself in your cloak of security, with gold on the inside and blue on the outside, pull it tight round your neck and your waist and slowly come back to where you are.

I find it handy to keep a notebook on the table whilst I meditate, and write (or draw) what I've seen and heard. Although sometimes it's difficult to drag yourself away from the garden, 30 minutes at this meditation is more than enough, you may need to go a few times, until you are familiar with it before anyone appears to you, however you may meet scores on your first trip! Good luck and enjoy.

KittyWings and MazinKnox: I also get the rotating feeling but I also feel lightheaded and I get this sensation like my body is rocking, sort of, from side to side. And then after a few seconds to a couple of minutes, it ends. Then I'm like wide awake?...This has been happening for some time now.

Also, academylin: I'm new to meditation so if you've posted that technique that you mentioned to Kitty, I'll check it out... But in this post, you said to slowly come back to where you are. How do you mean slowly? Like are you talking about 'deep' meditation in this post or what?
Thanks. 😊

KittyWings, I feel as if I am rotating too. I tried to meditate and only lasted about 15 minutes because it was really cold and I got distracted but I think the more we do it the more centered we feel

I want to say thank you!
I tried meditating for my first time and visualized the things you said (It was surprisingly quiet easy) I got to my garden; and I love it! Only if I had it in real life:)
Anyways the main reason why I wanted to say thanks is because I saw my great grand-mother! I only saw her when I was a baby before she died. So thank you!

I have seen that you have read my post re; brainwaves explained, in there is a brief description of your chakras. Your throat chakra is the centre of energy for clair audience, clear speaking. A "blockage" type feeling there would indicate an inability to voice your concerns/ questions/ thoughts/ understandings AND misunderstandings correctly.

This is physically due to lack of experience in (not neccasarily public speaking) but in perhaps being given the opportunity to "say what you feel". Perhaps this has been frowned on by your peers in the past, or something along those lines.

The fact that you are now AWARE that there is a blockage there, means that you can do something about it.

We need to balance your chakras. If you tried the spirit guide med, let me know how you got on... And I'll get a chakra cleansing one, either posted on here or to you!

Hope I can be of help!

Thanks for the posting. Perhaps you can help. When I meditate, I get this choking sensation in my throat. I don't know what that's all about. I went to the local Zen Buddhist center and they taught me how to meditate. The choking feeling alone is enough to make me not want to meditate when I know I really need to. Can you help me with this?

RozellaCheri, you are more than welcome.
Remember to try and keep a journal of your meditations, writing things down which may not make immediate sense, they may come into clarity soon after. Don't worry if your guide doesn't appear immediately, practise and enjoy the garden in the meantime.
Oh and something which I always do when I'm there and I didn't mention in the story, is rather than sit on the bench which is in the garden, I sit in a wrought iron pargolla whose floor is strewn with soft luxurious cushions... (I really want this garden in real life!) Anyway, before my guide comes in, I always look under the cushions because generally they have left me a gift under there! The gift will have a symbolic explanation relevant to you too
Let me know how you get on!
When submissions are being accepted I have four simple focusing excercises to post as a story, which help you increase the ability to maintain flow during the meditation/ visualisation, and may help you " higher ".
See you on the flip!

Academylin- Thank you so much for putting this info out there. I see that you wrote this a while back, but I just came acrossed it today. I have been trying to learn how to contact my guide but I never feel like I am doing it right- this gives me so much more direction. Thank you so very much!

Hi kitty,
Are you new to meditation? If so it may be neccessarry to train yourself to dispel any distractions, there is a very easy method for this, but it takes practice.
There are four short focusing exercises to try.
In fact as the technique is quite lengthy, I'll post it as a story, so keep your eyes peeled for it!

When I try to meditate, I feel like my body is rotating.
Then I get to a state where my mind is quite and I am focusing on my breathing - then my eyes start twitching and it distracts me.

Does this happen to anyone else? How do I stop it?

mar02...ONE of the easiest ways to tell if a chakra is unbalanced is feeling tension in the body. Even strong emotions like fear and depression can manifest into physical symptoms. When people say they're "heartbroken" they really are feeling it in their chest and in their heart chakra.

I couldn't begin to name every symptom of an over- or under-active chakra. If you search "chakra" and "symptom" and "unbalanced" or under/over active, you can find some good websites. There was a site I saw a few months ago that was spot on and chock full of information on psychological causes, physical symptoms of deficiency or excessiveness, addictions related, and healing methods. I can't think of the name though. You'll know it when you see it.

mar02...Exactly. Everyone has them. I don't think everyone is 100% in balance, 100% of the time. LIFE HAPPENS and it affects us psychologically & spiritually.

Some chakras can be TOO open or they can be shut down. There are people who live solely on their lower main chakras (root & sacral). They exist in base desires, needs & instincts with no thought for others or for the Universe. They're not the most spiritual folks in the world.

There are people who live "in their head" or solely in the upper chakras. They are all about being one with the Universe, God, the angels, etc. Unfortunately they are not GROUNDED. Some of those folks are downright delusional or zealots.

Its all about balance. We all can learn to be grounded to Mother Earth... And be a sensual being... And feel secure... And feel unconditional love for others... And speak our mind without fear... And be intuitive... And connect to the Universe. I wish that balance for everyone.

I'll end this before it gets too long. 😊

very interesting, thanks. This helped a lot... So everyone has these chakras, but they just either don't know about them, or don't know how to use them/balance them correct? ❀-mar.

mar02...The chakras are energy centers in the body. When they are balanced, your mind, body, and spirit are working in perfect order. When any of them are shut down (under-active) or open too wide (over-active) then you are not balanced. There are physical and psychological symptoms when the chakras aren't balanced.

Example...the throat chakra... An imbalance MAY result from suffering verbal abuse or being forced to keep secrets/tell lies. Physically it can manifest as pain in the neck or shoulders, or the lump in the throat. Psychologically it CAN manifest as shyness, having a small voice, difficulty putting feelings into words, or a fear of speaking.

Things happen to us in life that will throw us out of balance, especially the psychics/intuitives on this board because we are open to the energy coming through from "outside" forces.

There are many ways to correct chakra imbalances. I could go on for days. I don't want to get to deep. Search "underactive/"overactive" chakras or chakra imbalance online.

Middle age (lol) we're has beens!
WOW! Yours is a LOT more intricate than I was going to attempt, will stick with the basic 9 for the ladeeee, she's not in that much trouble or in depth knowledge herself, but I do think that it would help... Here you go, whaddaya think;
She is a VERY good friend of mine, only capitalised because I don't keep too many, she suffers (and has for the 15 years I have known her) from depression. (And it's beginning to get manic) However I feel that if we can check, align and mend her chakras somehow it may make her more aware as to how to SAVE ie; STORE the good energy (when she has it, because man she has loads when it's there) in order to use it to her advantage when she starts to hit rock bottom... Is that going to work do you think?
And does my very complicated English make sense to you guys, because sometimes I think I may seem a little out there, although it is merely coloquoisms!
Oh, and ROCK 1972!

Well, I use colored stones/gems too. As I place each one, I say an affirmation for each chakra and TRY TO visualize the color for a bit before moving to the next chakra. My visualization skills come & go. 2 out of 3 ain't bad. πŸ˜† I lay down with those for about an hour.

As it stands now I balance:
Earth Star (black), Foot/Grounding (brown), Knees/Movement (forest green/tan), Perineal (maroon),
Root (red), Hara (reddish-orange), Sacral/Splenic (orange), Emotion (yellowish-orange),
Solar Plexus (yellow), Diaphragm/Lower Heart (lime), Heart (Green), Thymic (aquamarine),Throat (blue), Zeal Point/Well of Dreams/Auxiliary (violet), 3rd Eye (purple); Crown, Soul Star, and Palms (white or clear).

There supposedly is another chakra developing on the top back of the head called Ascension. I have been feeling that one tingling for a few months before I found out what it was. Its weird.

By the way YVE,
My friend needs her chakras balancing and I was going to do it for her... I've found a few variations on line, but wondered if you knew a simple one, I was going to use relevant gems at relevant points on her body with a meditation... Do you know a simpler way!?
Thanks hun, ooohh... Aswell, wondered if 72 happened to be your birth year? Only mine is and it would be inda nice if I were meeting people my own age! (I know! Random!)

Good advice YVE,
I find visualisations easier as thinking about the journey helps to keep everyday thoughts at bay IMO. I find the bloomin " car needs washing " "What are we having for tea tonight " things flying round my head, really difficult to quash just sitting in silence! But brilliant advice, there you go Mar02 you have plenty to be going on with!

mar...Visualizations are not easy for everyone, including me. When I'm balancing my chakras I'm lucky if I can manage to visualize a solid color 😐. Personally, I don't consider visualizations as meditation. I think of them as another form of developmental work. To me, meditation time is quiet time to still my mind, and if "information" comes through, that's a bonus.

Sometimes when we are not able to do certain things or when our gifts wane, there is reason. Our progress is sometimes halted for a reason. Either its not time or you need to slow down. We want to do & know everything now, but we can't have everything now. The wisdom of the Universe is OVERWHELMING for us down here.

Take baby steps. When you meditate, at first just be still. Sit or lay down and just breathe. Just concentrate on your breathing and do not allow "everyday life" to enter your thoughts. This is your quiet time with God & the Universe. Just 10 minutes a day (minimum). Give the Universe your undivided attention and eventually it will send you messages back. 😊

Hi Mar02,
You found it already!
Initially to learn to meditate you need to find a quiet room, somewhere that you can't hear the builders outside (!) and make sure you turn off your phones.
The first times you try this thoughts from everyday life will KEEP popping into your head, gently shift them to one side, you will deal with them later. Gentle music helps or something with ambience, like birdsong or whale nois playing in the background (I know this sounds demented, and trust me for the first few times I felt that way, like... Right, so now what... Nah, nothing happened!) persevere!
Take three or four DEEP breaths feel the air fill your lungs and count the breath in for the count of a slow four and out for a slow eight (have a brown paper bag at hand in case of hyperventilation, I am only joking of course!) then, whilst still concentrating on your breathing start to feel every muscle, from the toes up relaxing, the more you concentrate on your breathing the less likely thoughts of other stuff are to creep in...
Once you reach the very top of your head, you should be able to go into the journey of the meditation. If you feel you can't memorise it, read it into a microphone slowly and record it, then use that.
Hmmm. All it takes now is practise!
Remember to wrap on your cloak of protection afterwards to bring all your chakras back to every day level.
Have fun trying, and let me know how you get on!

i can't seem to get the feeling that I can imagine this kind of thing... Or get out of my mind (if that's what is supposed to happen) I don't know, I just don't feel it... I want to be able to meditate, but I don't think I can relax enough... Any suggestions? I'm really new to this whole thing... And just discovered what is all happening a few weeks ago. ❀ -mar.

Magic mirror,...
Wait... He/She may not come the first, second or third time, you may not realise when he/ she is there... They may leave you only a gift and still remain invisible... Until the next time... Practise and experience will teach you... Write all your journes down to be able to analyse them at a later stage.

so while your meditating you imagine the bridge, the path & the garden.? Do you actual imagine a person or do you wait until a person comes to you? Because isn't that the same thing. If you want to see a person, don't you just imagine a person there? I'm confused. I'm new to this ESP thing. I need lots of help! Lol

I tried this but the problem seems to be that I went through there and the door was locked one time. What does that mean? It seemed like there was a man smelling a flower there before, now it just seems empty. I don't get it, although I feel my abilities are on the slide right now.

When I tried that I met this guy that was floating and was all black except for a white mask. He found me in the forest, but I am pretty sure its my imagination because I almost knew what he was going to say. Also he looked like a character in a movie I have seen like four times.
