Are you wondering how to hear your spirit guides? When a client tells me in a psychic reading session, “I can’t hear my spirit guides,” my spirit guides will say something along the lines of, “We’re yelling, and they’re just not listening!”
The problem with learning how to hear your spirit guides is not that they don’t talk to us, but that we don’t know how to listen.
Spirits on the Astral Plane are much more aware of the potential for contact then we are. Not only that, but they’re actually more eager than we are to communicate. And that’s because they’re more aware that it’s possible. They’re highly motivated to talk to us.
The key to communication with the Astral Plane is to create a place of tranquility, both within and without.
How can you be expected to hear the small still voice of those in spirit with all the noise going on in your life? You need to make it as easy as possible for both them and you to converse.
When the soundtrack to your life is not so much a score by Enya, but more a screeching discord of police sirens, rap on the radio, vacuous commercials on TV, and a thousand internal combustion engines, you can hardly be blamed for not knowing how to hear your spirit guides.
We live in a world in which we’re constantly exposed to noise pollution.
It can be next to impossible to escape. Even in your own home, it can be hard to get away from other people, the TV, or external noises like traffic or airplanes. And though it can present a challenge, creating the tranquility that allows you to hear messages from the spirit world, helping you to fulfill your life’s purpose, is well worth the effort.
Living your life without the support of your spirit guides is, as they put it, like going on a canoe trip without a paddle.
Without a paddle, your ability to navigate your course is limited. By clinging on to the sides of the canoe and going with the current, you might, with luck, get to your destination.
With your spirit guides actively working with you, you have a much greater chance of getting where you want to go.
It’s your spirit guides who help you get the “lucky breaks,” or urge you to turn left, and not right, when you walk through a door. They conspire with you, at all times, to make sure that you make choices that are consistent with your soul’s life plan.
Learn How To Hear Your Spirit Guides
Learning how to hear your spirit guides can be made much easier by simply introducing a little more silence into your daily life, and a smidgen more peace and quiet in your mind.
And though you can work with your spirit guides at any time of the day or night, it’s useful to practice somewhere that’s away from noise or distractions. As an old soul, you should ideally have somewhere private where you can shut out the outside world. But since, for many people, that’s a luxury, you can always use the corner of your bedroom, or sit at the kitchen table when no one else is around.
To begin learning how to listen to your spirit guides, it’s helpful to have something to focus on.
You might want to light a candle or burn some incense to create an atmosphere that’s conducive to hearing them. A semi-darkened room is infinitely better than an office with fluorescent lighting.
To clear your mind before listening to your spirit guides, I suggest you meditate for a few minutes. One of the easiest ways to do this is to close your eyes, and simply listen. I don’t mean you should go straight into listening for the voice of your spirit guides. Simply focus your attention on noises in the room, like a ticking clock, or perhaps the sound of traffic outside. And every time you find your mind wandering, just go back to listening.
After 10 minutes or so, put a question to your spirit guides. Ideally this should be a question to which you really want to know the answer, not just a test. The response from your spirit guides should be pretty quick. After a few seconds, you should get an answer. It may come as a little clarity around the subject, or you can ask your spirit guides to give you a word or phrase that might help you.
My own spirit guides are fond of saying that learning how to hear your spirit guides is not rocket science. It is however, a learned skill.
It can take time to discern their subtle voice and gentle guidance. It’s important to recognize that this is a collaboration. Your part is to create the space to ensure the clearest communication between the Physical and the Astral Plane. And once you do that, your spirit guides will respond positively, and make every effort to make themselves heard.

Thanks so much for this clarifying reminder. Cheers and Best Wishes!
Thanks! Glad you liked it.
Ainslie, when I ask the Spirit Guides a question to which I want a very specific outcome, how do I know that it is not just my own mind answering the question with a pisitive outcome?
It can help to make the question as specific as possible.
I know my spirit guides are with me i know it and i feel cared and protected for i just cant hear them either but i will try this…because my entire life has been without a paddle 🙁 i need them.
Hi Ainslie, As always, you have a way of writing that humorously and kindly gets the point across. Thank you.
Thanks for the kind words, Susie.
Congratulations! The perfect holiday gift. Many happy years to come … And much love. Judith
