How Can a Spirit Guide Help Me?

March 22, 2023

In simple words, a spiritual guide is an ethereal being who is with us to help us. They could be the Ascended Masters, Angels, or someone that has incarnated, lived many lives, and has transitioned. Spirit Guides can be someone from our past lives as well. It is my understanding that we have one specific Guide who is chosen well before we incarnate on this Earth, and stays with us our entire lifetime, and others that come in and evolve as needed at different times in our lives. Let’s learn how a spirit guide can help us.

They are with us 24/7, and offer us help and direction. A deep, clear connection with the Guides is essential to understand and comprehend their guidance. They communicate to us through our senses—seeing, feeling, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching. We call them the clairs.

There are four primary ways our Spirit Guides connect with us—clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and claircognizance.

1. Clairvoyance

Guides communicate to us visually when we are deeply engrossed in something. They will show us images as answers to our queries or as hints to those answers. Vivid dreams, mental pictures, mini movie-like images, and visions are all examples of clairvoyant guidance.

2. Clairaudience

Have you ever noticed your ears tingling out of nowhere? It is not always tinnitus. Spirit Guides are buzzing in our ears the messages they want us to know. There are times when the communications appear as voices inside our head too. In simple words, our Guides help us by encouraging us to pay attention to specific sounds, words, or noise.

3. Clairsentience

That “gut feeling” and goosebumps are two excellent examples of clairsentient messages we receive. Our body will tell us how it feels. If we are with a person with whom we are not comfortable, we will get that gut feeling indicating something is amiss. It is one of the ways our guides are warning us.

4. Claircognizance

We just know that it is happening. We will not have any substantial pieces of evidence to support us. Yet, we know that whatever we are feeling and thinking is right, and there is a sense of peace and clarity associated with the feeling.

While clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, and claircognizance are the primary ways our Spirit Guides guide us, there are some other ways we can receive their help.

Automatic writing

It is not a complicated process, but we need to devote some time for this one. All you need is a notebook and a pen. Prepare yourself for receiving the guidance by clearing and grounding yourself. Invite the Spirit Guide(s) and once you feel ready, ask the question. Now let the pen flow. Do not think or read whatever you are writing. After completing, express gratitude for the communication. Then you can read whatever you wrote as messages your guides have for you.

Tarot/Oracle/Angel Cards

These are, perhaps, the most beautiful ways Spirit Guides show you the right path. There are many decks available these days. Choose the one that resonates with you and go for it. Work with them after clearing their energies and prepare them to help you connect with your guides for assistance.


Pendulums show you the direction. They often give you pinpoint answers when you are clouded. And, undeniably, they are one of the tools our Guides often choose to help us.

There are many more ways they show us signs:

  • Repeated numbers
  • Feathers
  • Other signs related to our questions [coins/money in case of financial abundance]
  • Receiving impromptu messages
  • A news item suddenly popping up from nowhere

Spirit Guides can offer guidance on all aspects of our lives—life purpose, health, relationships, finance, career, wellness, spirituality, etc.—but the way they communicate with us and help us is dependent on how you build your relationship with them.

All we have to do is to seek help and open our arms with the willingness to receive their support. Have you ever communicated with your Spirit Guides? If not, maybe today is the day to start?
