When looking for a way to improve your connection to Spirit and enhance your ability to see, hear and feel the unseen world of Spirit Guides, Angels and Loved Ones - there are many ways to flex your intuitive muscles without going to the gym.
Outside of active mediation, learning oracle cards, reading books on Auras and going to classes - there are plenty of ways that you can improve your connection to the Divine - without ever having to leave the Starbucks Drive-Thru.
10 Daily Activities that Improve your Connection to Spirit
1. Ask for guidance more often
One of the most common questions I’m asked about working to develop a relationship with Spirit - either just to connect with your own personal Loved Ones and Spirit Guides or as a professional Medium - is, “Can I ask my Angels something like this?”
And the answer is, without me ever having to know the question, YES.
You can ask your Guides, Angels and Loved Ones for help or guidance on anything you feel like. No matter how physical or normal the question.
2. See Everyone as Spirit
When connecting with your Loved Ones once they’ve crossed over, sometimes, it helps me to think of them as people, instead of some Spirit somewhere. Because that’s exactly who they are - people who were once living and who once had a body.
Today, when you go out, remind yourself when interacting with an aggressive driver - this person is Spirit, too.
Before greeting anyone new, remember - Spirit first, body second. You’ll surprise yourself with the amount of compassion you’ll have and the new insight you'll receive when simply reminding yourself that ALL are Spirit.
3. Practice Active Listening
90% of my job is listening to Spirit and communicating what I hear to my client.
What’s the best way to become a better medium or communicator with Spirit?
Well, it’s simply hearing what is being said to you in the right here and now.
The more listening you can do in daily life, the easier it becomes to hear those in the realm of Spirit when they try to communicate, too. In fact, improving your listening skills is one of the best ways to open your clear hearing abilities (clairaudience).
4. A Few Minutes of More Awareness
Take 5-10 minutes every day to pay attention to your surroundings. One of the main goals of meditation, energy sensing class or even yoga is to get you to open up and notice more of what’s happening.
Dedicating time to paying attention to environmental shifts and the activities around you, is an exercise in paying attention to the subtle of energy, interactions, emotion and environment.
Much of developing your intuition and connection to Spirit is the act of picking up on more subtle cues and energy shifts - and by simply observing the activities of a bird feeder for a few minutes - you’ve already started the journey.
5. Speak How You Feel
Often times, we receive and feel much more information that we speak. We hold back, bite our tongue and keep it in.
By speaking how you feel, you are communicating the Truth of one Spirit (you) to those in Spirit around you. By speaking what is felt and experienced, an opportunity is provided for others in Spirit around you, to connect with you and communicate their feelings too.
When stepping forward to connect with Spirit in the unseen world, we must first step forward to fully connect with those in Spirit already around us. . . including ourselves.
6. Practice Compassion and Empathy
In my work to connect with Spirit, I feel, hear, translate and exchange the emotions of two individuals with myself as the conduit. I act as a translator for acceptance, understanding and compassion - relaying the love of those in the Spirit World to my clients on Earth.
As you become a conduit for the eternal love and acceptance of our Loved Ones, Guides and Angels, why not become a channel of love and acceptance always?
Beginning to have understanding for what someone else is going through or experience in your daily life, is one way to keep your channel clear for the understanding of Spirit to shine through you.
Take a moment today to understand how someone else might feel or what another person’s experience might be.
7. More Acceptance
By releasing judgement of others and judgement of yourself, you are embodying a main characteristic of those in the Spirit World, and becoming a better connector and conduit between the realm of Spirit and those around you.
8. Trust your Gut and Nagging Feelings
It’s time to start trusting what you receive, no matter who many deny it - even if that person is you.
One of the best ways to own and acknowledge how you feel in your gut is by speaking it out loud (#5). When connecting with Spirit, sometimes, you will receive information and guidance that doesn’t always make immediate sense - not to you any way. And the more you begin to trust what you receive as being valid - no matter where it comes from - the faster you’ll develop a trusting relationship with Spirit.
9. Shine a Light
Be a spotlight for the Divine.
Find yourself in a group of people who are complaining? Feeling like you might be going down the road of negativity?
You can turn the bus right around by speaking positively about a situation, person or place.
Choose to find and search out the bright spot. The lesson. The interesting and unique part about something. Shine a light on the darkness and you’ll be doing exactly what Spirit would have you do anyway. By being a beacon for others, you are acting as the beacon of Light that Spirit may be for you. You are showing evidence to others of the Love of the Divine and those in Spirit - right here on Earth.
10. Provide Love Where You Need it
Lead by example and show those around you how you wish to be treated by providing that treatment. When working with Spirit, their suggestion on receiving - period - is to give others the gifts that you wish to receive.
By providing abundance to others, you’re turning on the in flow of gifts and abundance to you.
Part of the intuitive journey is living your life with more ease, and in turn, you become more attuned to the subtle energetic messages you receiving, making 'following the guidance' that much more natural for you.
