We must understand that connecting with Spirit requires practice and some work. We need to be willing to make a commitment to this practice. The act of connecting to Spirit is different for everyone but the practices of opening yourself to the Spirit Realm are pretty much the same for everyone.

the most is important thing to begin to do it is to meditate. Meditation is the key to having a closer relationship with Spirit. The act of meditation causes your mind and body to be more relaxed. Your vibrational frequency then will raise which will bring it closer to the frequency of Spirit’s vibration. This way you are meeting Spirit halfway, thus making it easier for both you and Spirit.

The other thing to do is to be aware of your thoughts and emotions. When you are aware of these things you then can begin to discern what thoughts and emotions are your own and which are Spirit’s. Many people can feel the motions of Spirit and this is their way of communicating with Spirit. These people are clairesentient. It is because of this that we must learn the difference. The people who pick up easily on Spirit’s emotions are also Empaths and pick up on the emotions of others who are also incarnated. This is another good reason to be aware of your thoughts and emotions.

We must learn to be able to have a good outlook about the world around us and ourselves. When we do this we will attract the higher vibrational entities. When we are depressed we attract lower entities, which are not demons but merely entities who have a lower vibration because they are very confused about what they are and what they are supposed to be doing. These entities do things to attract the attention of humans by harassing them. They are not sure if they are still incarnated or not and trying to figure it out by getting the attention of those who are still incarnated.

We must also be aware of the fact that we must protect ourselves every time we connect with Spirit. We need to protect ourselves from the entities who are confused. They cannot penetrate any Spiritual barriers of protection that we place around ourselves. We need to do this on a daily basis. The best thing to do its to have a ritual and schedule so that you always remember to do this. This can be done in many ways: through prayer, imagery, smudging, pink Himalayan sea salt, crystals, etc. Protection methods are very personal and individual. Find what works best for you and stick with it. There are many Spiritual teachers out there who give some great ideas on this.

The most important way to be connected to Spirit is to have an open mind. When you must doubt and analyze everything you are blocking yourself from Spirit. You will also eventually cause Spirit to give up and stop trying. The thing is to remain open and calm. Should Spirit think you are frightened, they will stop trying to communicate with you. The Spirits never want to frighten anyone. Healthy skepticism is always a good thing but over analyzing every little thing is not.

We want to communicate with you, assist you and have relationships with you; however, this is a two way street and we cannot do it alone. – John.
