What is the best time of day to connect with Spirit?

This is a question many wonder about.

Any time of day is a good time, however, there are times when we are more receptive than others.

1. Asleep

It’s true. We are most receptive to Spirit and their messages when we are asleep. It is because we are totally relaxed and don’t have any barriers up to block Spirit. This is why many people dream of loved ones who have passed.

You can also meet your own Spirit Guide in sleep. Simply state your intent (read more about Setting Intent) before you go to sleep and your Guide will appear in your dreams.

2. Falling Asleep

When you are falling asleep, you are very relaxed and therefore very open to Spirit. Spirit will visit using images, colours, words, and physical sensations.

Think about it for a moment and you will probably realize you’ve had this experience: Have you ever been drifting off to sleep and seen a face you don’t recognize? Or felt tingles on the top of your head? Or smelled a particular scent that reminds you of someone?

Here is another opportunity to ask to connect with Spirit. Just before you go to bed invite Spirit to visit. Then as you are falling asleep, note what or who comes through.

3. During or After a Meditation

We are relaxed, in a safe and quiet place and inwardly focused during and right after meditating. This is another optimal condition and time to connect with Spirit.

To connect with Spirit through meditation, use our tips.

All of this takes practice so please don’t give up if feel like you haven’t connected on the first go. Be patient!

Do you ever feel like you see pictures or items of the same animal everywhere you turn?

You watch TV and up pops the same animal. It’s on posters and books or you dream about it.

I spoke in my last blog about what an Animal Totem is. In brief to remind you: An Animal Totem is another type of a Guide we have with us throughout our lives. The purpose of the animal totem is different for each person. They help us get through different situations we endure throughout our lives.

So if we have this guidance, why can’t we tap into it and use it first hand?

Great news!! You can! And I am going to help you learn how to do just that in this blog.

So first I want you to think of anytime when you have had the same animal pop up several times. Now if you have not had this happen, can you think of a specific animal that you feel like you have a connection to? If you still say “nope, I can’t or I don’t”, that’s ok I can still help you find it out what animal it is.

So the next step in connection with your Animal Totem or finding out what animal it is by meditating on it. Now, I can hear some of you. Ah, I don’t have time to meditate or I can’t meditate. Well how about give yourself 5 minutes of quiet time where you can just sit down with quiet around you. Five minutes people, that’s all. You can do it. You never know how much this new found friend will help you along your journey.

I think we are all ready to get started with this. So let’s go meet your Animal guide. Yes, Animal Totem and Animal Guides is the same thing.

Find a comfortable seat where you can relax. Next, you can close your eyes or keep them open, which ever one you feel more comfortable with.

Now, let go of all your day’s thoughts, agendas, to do lists. Let go of anything that no longer serves you at this time. Deep breaths in and exhaling it slowly. Letting go, knowing that you are on a new journey right now ready to meet your animal guide.

I want you to picture yourself barefoot, in the desert. No one else is around. Just you; knowing you are coming closer to meet your animal guide.

You breathe in and out slowly, totally relaxing your whole body. You are still picturing yourself standing in the desert.

You notice a door in the middle of nowhere. You slowly walk over to it knowing it is a safe door where only good will come of it. There is nothing to fear or worry about.

You slowly walk over to that door. The door opens and there is a staircase below.
You take one step at a time and there are ten steps to the bottom. You slowly take one step at a time counting down the steps. 10, 9, 8, 7,6,5,4,3,2,1. You are on the bottom step. As you step down on the floor there is a faint light in the distance.

You look towards it, to see what is there. You notice that there is something there.

Walk closer towards it. Stop when you have to if you are feeling overwhelmed. There is no rush.

There will be a point when you feel that you are good and no need to get closer. When you reach this point, take another deep breath in and release it.

Carefully take a look at it. What is it?

What animal, insect or mammal is it?

This is the time you can now observe what it is.

There is no rush. Just enjoy the moment and connect with it.

When you are ready, thank this animal for coming forward and know that this is your animal totem and guide.

Slowly turn around and start walking towards the stairs where you will head back up them.

You will count the stairs are you go up. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. You are at the top.

The door opens and you take a deep breath in and out. You are ready to step out the door. As you walk out the door closes behind you.

You now walk away from the door remembering your experience.

Open your eyes when you are ready to. Deep breath in and out.

WOW!! Amazing. I can’t wait to hear who your totems are! Drop me a line at Karen@channeled-wisdom.com or leave a comment below.
