When I connect with my spirit guides, I have found the following communication steps to be helpful:

  •  Ask
  •  Become still
  •  Wait in expectation
  •  Receive
  •  Interpret
  •  Ask for clarification
  •  Trust
  •  Act
  •  Evaluate


Ask. Don’t forget this step. Guidance can only be given if we ask. If we don’t ask, nobody is going to answer. And be specific. If you state a fuzzy question, you will get a fuzzy answer. It does not need to be properly formulated. The intention counts.

Wait for the answer. That is, become quiet and listen to the inner voice, or wait and watch whether the answer is going to show up in another way. As a sign or pattern. It is like waiting for thunder after the lightning.

Receive the answer. Write down what the inner voice said. Notice it. Notice what the book or the friend said.

Interpret the answer. Understand. Some messages may not be downright clear at the beginning.
Ask for clarification and discuss with your inner voice.

Trust. There are two types of trust. One is trusting that what we received is from spirit and not from our ego. The second one is actually daring to act on the guidance.

Act on it. Or if you don’t act on it, then look at your reasons or fears.

Evaluate. Was your interpretation right? This cycle will help you build more trust.
