There are many reasons you might want to communicate with spirits.

Perhaps an unknown spirit has appeared in your home (or was there before you), or it may be that you wish to speak with a loved one who recently transitioned out of their physical body.

The good news is that everybody has the ability to communicate with spirits. All it takes is the right preparation, the right frame of mind, and for the soul in question to be willing to talk.

Let’s run through this step-by-step:

Step 1: Set Up A Private Space

Some people set aside an entire room for themselves to practice listening and talking to souls and spirits.

Whereas some opt to set up anywhere, they are, as long as they have a comfortable chair.

Whatever you decide, you should lay out some protection crystals like amethyst, as well as focussing crystals like clear quartz.

Incense, oils and candles might also have the same effects.

The space you choose should be comfortable and should feel yours uniquely.

Cushions, dim lighting and quiet music are optional – a lock on the door (or some guarantee of privacy) is not.

How To Communicate With Spirits

Step 2: Prepare Yourself

The second and most important step to get right is ensuring that you well rested and not hungry.

Bathe your body in water and ground yourself physically. Then you need to get yourself, spiritually and emotionally prepared for the process.

In short, you need to be at peace with yourself. It’s no good trying to communicate with such pure energy if you are not in the right headspace as your energies will be too muddy to focus.

You can cleanse your aura with a light healing meditation. Not only will healing meditation clear your aura, it will also raise your vibrations temporarily which can make communicating with spirits a little easier.

Picking the right time can also make a big difference. You might find it difficult if you attempt to communicate with spirits after a hard day at work, as emotional and physical exhaustion drastically effect your spiritual energies.

So before moving on to the next step, ensure that you are in the right headspace for what could be an intense experience.

Step 3: Establish A Link Of Clairaudience

Now your space is secure, and your body is grounded and functioning at it’s optimum. You are ready to begin the process of communicating with spirits.

Enter a light meditative state, clearing your mind and ridding it of any distractions from the day. You need complete focus.

Talk out loud to the soul you wish to communicate with and inform them of your loving intention.

Ask them if they want to come and establish a direct link clairaudience with you.

At this point, you can expect an answer one way or the other. How you receive messages from them depends on two things.

The first is your spiritual state. So some might experience audible or visible phenomena while others might start to buzz with vibrational energy. The second is the spirits or souls schedule.

All souls have periods of service work and other times of unavailability.

You will know the answer in your gut, as is often the case with those souls you have a deep connection.

Step 4: Communicating With Spirits

If you have gotten this far then, you are finally ready to communicate with the spirit.

Always ask questions out loud and in your mind to start. You need only wait for a second or two for an answer before moving on.

It can be difficult for a spirit to find its way and you want them to move towards your voice. Only ask one question at a time, many questions will confuse the spirit, and you must be patient for an answer.

Pretty soon you’ll start getting answers. Unfortunately, without the right tools and expertise, these answers might mean nothing to you.

This is less of a problem with lost loved ones as their messages will make some sense on an intuitive level due to your close connection.

The right tool for a beginner will likely be a pendulum. It is straightforward to use, and it simplifies the answers to, “Yes”, “No”, “Maybe” and “I don’t know”.

For a first-timer, a pendulum is probably the best tool if you want answers when you communicate with spirits.

You must resist the urge to use an Ouija board. Please wait until you have more experience on your own, using your energy to talk to loved ones.

Your kin will come to you when they can, and if you are prepared and quiet, you will feel them again.

Make sure you ask no more than three questions at any one time. It takes a lot of energy for them to get through to us in this 3rd dimension. Spirits exhaust quickly and it is bad manners to keep them too long.

For now, stick with the pendulum or simply write down the images and sensations that you feel in reply to your questions.

Step 5: Returning Your Mind

Once the soul you have spoken with retreats, the connection will fade.

Use the opportunity to say goodbye to the spirit and wish them well on their journey. It will be easier to reconnect with the spirit another time if you do.

You can sever the connection at any time and for any reason by leaving it be and not connecting again.

This is useful on the rare occasions that a spirit is angry or resentful and tries to take that out on you.

Once the connection is gone, you should thank the spirit for their time and start working on clearing up your space and any residual energy in your aura.

Your next task is to cleanse those energies.

Burning sage is always a great way to clear the energy in a room and has a long history of use in just these situations.

Many people like to use a mantra when they are moving the sage around the room as a sort of ritual, bringing their mind back as they cleanse the spirit from the room.

End with 5 minutes of contemplation. Reflect on the experience, what it taught you and what you hope to take from it.
