Your friends and family will probably think you’re a few chakras short of an aura (after all, most grown adults don’t usually talk to imaginary friends) but opening your third eye and contacting your spirit guides is a lot of fun and it can improve your life in countless ways.
Indeed. Aside from the colorful characters you can meet and the mind-altering visions you can receive, there are plenty of reasons to make like a shaman and give this mysterious path of spiritual awakening a whirl. Here’s my top 10:
1. Live your purpose with more ease and flow.
Living your purpose is a challenging journey. There are many twists and turns along the way and a whole bunch of energies to sift through. Spirit guides can assist you when you get stuck, when you want extra clarity, or when you just need some friendly encouragement to keep going.
2. Get insightful relationship advice.
Want to manifest a soul mate or twin flame relationship? Spirit guides help you understand what barriers you might have to creating your ideal relationship and how to be your true self, so you can attract the right partner for you at the right time.
3. Make better business decisions.
If traditional business or coaching advice doesn’t resonate, don’t panic. Spirit guides will give you custom-tailored advice aligned with your core values. It’s like having your own personal board members on stand-by, happy and willing to work for free.
4. Increase your self-love and self-acceptance.
Your spirit guides will give you unconditional love and will be always be there for you in times of need. Just this in itself can be enough to transform both your relationship with yourself and consequently, your relationship with others.
5. Manifest new projects and goals.
Whether it’s a creative endeavor, a business project or even something like house hunting, spirit guides love to help manifest all sorts of things. From chance encounters to ideas suddenly popping into your head, once you’ve set your intention, called your spirit guides in and started taking action, you’ll be surprised how quickly things start falling into place.
6. Let go of indecision and confusion in all areas of your life.
Being able to call upon your personal spiritual A-Team in times of need comes in very, very handy. You can seek guidance on challenges you’re currently facing, get new insights and understandings about your problems and clear away any indecision, doubt or confusion you’ve been experiencing. Phew.
7. Laugh more often at life and yourself.
Spirit guides have a brilliant sense of humor and often use it to help you take yourself and life less seriously. A lot of anxiety and tension can be overcome when we start to see the funny side of things.
8. Get free hugs!
Well okay, not real hugs; but spirit guides do love to give healings. Whether you’re a practitioner or just interested in spiritual healing for yourself, spirit guides come up with all sorts of weird and wonderful ways to help you heal.
9. Grow spiritually and raise your vibration.
This may seem a tad obvious, but above all, spirit guides empower you to live to your highest potential. As you do this, you’ll raise your vibration and invite more compassion, happiness and fulfillment in your life. Who wouldn’t want that?
10. Deepen your connection with spiritual and multidimensional reality.
We are awakening to realize there is much more to reality and consciousness than we previously thought. Spirit guides serve as entertaining hosts to this realm and as you traverse these uncharted territories with them, you’ll come to see yourself as a powerful, multidimensional being who resides in an interconnected, divine universe. Imagine if everyone could awaken to this awareness; what a world it could be!
