How To Call Upon Spirit Guides And AngelsDo you connect with your higher power every day? I connect with Spirit every single day, many times per day. I ask different deities and entities for all sorts of things like: compassion, protection, prosperity, guidance, love, health, peace, etc. I’ve even asked them to help me achieve success in my business and to help me acquire the material possessions I desire.

Cultivating a deep and meaningful relationship with Spirit has enriched my life immensely and in so many different ways. One of my favorite quotes (and words I live by) is “Every thought is a prayer, and every word a spell”… so, I know that you pray to Spirit more than you realize each and every day with your thoughts (*wink*).

In this blog post, I’d like to teach you the mindful way I work with Spirit Guides and Guardian Angels. First and foremost, I want you to know that everyone can be a channel for spirit guidance. Within you is the capacity to connect with the spiritual energies that surround you at any given time. Yet, many people assume that contacting and working with their spirit guides and angels requires an extra special talent. It doesn’t…its simply a matter of being open to receiving the guidance that is always available to you.

When calling upon Spirit for assistance, the goal is to assure that the level of information you receive from Spirit is not only accurate, but also of the highest quality. This means that you want to attract only the most reliable and enlightened spirit guides. In order for this to happen, you must be in a receptive, trusting and open state. This “openness” is what allows you to feel the love and support your guides want to bless you with.

A common mistake that many make in attempting to contact their guides, is to strain to communicate with them. They assume that spirit is far away and therefore, difficult to reach. One of the most important things that you can do to become a clear channel is to relax and trust in the process. There’s no such thing as distance as we know it in the spiritual realm!  Never force or strain – you know … you sit there with your eyes squeezed shut and a wrinkled brow, over concentrating.

Allow the spiritual energy to flow into your crown chakra. In order for you to allow the flow, you must be in a relaxed and receptive state of being. After a while, working with Spirit will be so natural to you, you’ll be able to successfully call upon your Spirit Guides or Angels in the middle of a busy store or in the center of Times Square if you feel like it! Here are some tips to help get you started cultivating a mindful relationship with Spirit.

Set Up Your Physical Environment

Before calling on your spirit guides and guardian angels, set up your physical environment. Make sure you have comfortable seating or if you choose to lie down, have a comfortable place to do so. Keep a glass of water within reach, dim the lights, lower window blinds or close curtains. You can light some candles, burn incense or diffuse essential oils. Include in your space any crystals, sacred objects, or pictures that are meaningful to you. Turn off the ringer on your telephone and make sure that you will not be disturbed for the length of time you plan to practice. Wear comfortable clothes, little or no jewelry, and remove your shoes.

Be Specific About Who or What You Are Calling In

I hope  you’re discriminating about the company you keep in our everyday life. This same discernment must also be present when contacting the spirit world. The spirit world contains energy from everyone and every thing that has ever existed! Hold an intention and desire to call in only those spirit beings that provide guidance, love, and higher teachings. You can say something like, “I now invite in all of my loving and wise, spirit guides and guardian angels to be with me now. I am in need of some guidance and assistance.”

Hold A Crystal Clear Intention

The more specific you are when asking for guidance in a particular area of your life, the more that your spirit guides and guardian angels can assist you. Your intention is crucial. When you’re clear that you want to communicate, Spirit will automatically be aware of it, and it will enable them to connect with you more easily and effectively.

There’s an energetic attunement between the sender (the spirits), and the receiver (YOU – the channel), that must occur. Working with your spirit guides and guardian angels is a two-way communication process, only when you are open to this higher guidance, can you perceive its existence in your life.

Allow, Relax And Receive

Gently close your eyes. Take a few deep inhalations through your nose and down into your belly. Exhale. Stretch. Relax. Now, take a deep breath in through your nose, and fill your lungs completely; hold for several seconds, then breathe out through the mouth (making an audible sighing sound on the out breath), and relax. Do this a total of three times. Continue to breathe deeply, and with each round of breath, relax your body even more. Don’t force your breathing; simply allow the natural rhythm of your breath to flow in and out of your sacred body vessel.

Become aware of the point within the breath, where there is stillness (no mental chatter), and focus your mind there. This is achieved by concentrating your attention on the quiet center that exists between the in and out breath. I like to focus my closed eyes to the space between my brows (my third eye). Continue to go deeper into that center point within, spending as much time as you need, calming and centering your mind. If you get a random thought, simply acknowledge and thank it and re-focus on your breath.

Ask For What You Need

Ask your spirit guides and guardian angels for whatever you would like assistance with in your life. Be specific in your requests for guidance or assistance. Ask your guides to show you a sign that they have heard your request. (It will most likely not be a specific sign; I encourage you to be open to any indication of their presence.).

Ask your guides if they have a message for you. (Allow enough time to receive an intuitive nudge from spirit, and be open to any indication of their presence.)

Thank And Release Your Guides

When you feel that you have completed your contact with your guides, thank them for having been with you and please remember to release them. You can say something like , “I now release all of my loving and wise, spirit guides and guardian angels. Thank you for your assistance.”


Tip – Guardian Angels:

Many people believe that we each have a guardian angel (or several of them) assigned to us at birth. Your guardian angel watches out for you and gives you clues that can help improve your life. You can get to know your guardian angel better through the meditation practice I outlined in this blog post. During your meditation, ask your guardian angel to come to you. Stay very still and listen to the sound of your own breathing. See if you can feel your angels presence.

I work with Archangel Michael a lot. He has the best PR and is the most well known and popular of the Archangel crew. I don’t work with him for that reason. He showed up in a past life regression and protected me while I witnessed a very emotionally painful scenario. I’m getting a visceral reaction in my body just writing about him now, that’s how I know that I am deeply connected to him.

Tip – Spirit Guides:

Like Guardian Angels, Spirit Guides are assigned to us at birth, and we can have as many as seven of them. Sometimes a Spirit Guide is a soul that doesn’t want to incarnate again. Your Spirit Guide helps you to learn your spiritual lessons (which is why you chose to be here). They also watch over you and quite literally guide you on your path through life via your intuition. In addition, your Spirit Guides will sometimes set up learning situations to help you raise your vibration and evolve spiritually. Often Spirit Guides will come to us in our dreams because we are in a liminal space and therefore, very open and receptive.


I mentioned above to please be very specific about who or what you call in from the spirit realm. My suggestion to you is to stay with higher vibrational energies such as Gods, Goddesses, Angels, Totems, Saints and Masters. I also strongly suggest that you avoid calling in lower vibrational or super powerful, unpredictable energies such as Elementals, Watchtowers, Dragons or Fairies until you are knowledgeable about them and energetically prepared. Just sayin…

Do you work with any Spirit Guides and Guardian Angels? If so, please let us know how and if you have any tips!

    Hi Lisa,

    Love this post, when I studied energy healing, AA Rapheal arrived and this post has reminded me to call on him now. So many have arrived at different times with different messages of which I am always grateful although I go through periods when I am not good at receiving also, or block it in some way.

    I feel very attuned to AA Michael also and call on his loving car for protection. I never knew of releasing them, so thank you for that.

    Love n light

    Hi Caroline,

    I’m so glad you liked the post and that it has reminded you to work with Spirit again. Thanking and releasing Spirit is a super – important step, it closes the practice. Thanking Spirit is to show gratitude and releasing Spirit is just plain old hospitality! Makes sense right?

    Hi Lisa.
    Since last few days I am trying to connect to my angels but don’t seem to succeed. Something is definitely wrong with me but I don’t know what. I don’t know who my Guardian angle is and I am trying to know. But the connection just does not happens. Stumbled upon your post today. Liked it very much. I shall try to do as you have said in your post. Please pray that I connect to my guardian angle and get to know him and his name.
    Thank you.

    What a wonderful way to meet your guides. I love it from start to finish. The next time I sit in meditation I am doing this. I love the way you explain the visualizations. I always find it hard to get into the right state to visit with my guides. Im either not compltely into it or fall asleep.

    Hello Lisa, I was told on friday that i may have pancreatic cancer getting confirmed today, and I have been trying to call for guidance from my mum and dad in my meditation (both passed away) and I hit a really low point yesterday. When a pigeon sat on the roof opposite our office, it sat through a torrential rain storm just looking at me. I asked it to stay until my colleague arrived and it did (about 10 mins ). it really offered me comfort through a stressful moment, was this my guardian angel? Not being particularly religious I cant help but feel a little sceptical but it was just a lovely experience. xx

  14. Vikki says

    I am sorry, but I have another question: where do you find master guides and the like? The only ones I have been known to see, locate and communicate with have been elementals.

    Helo Lisa when you get itchi on top of your head and something like goose bump what does that symbolise?cos it happen most of the time when I am in deep prayer or just relaxing trying to connect to my angels and the other thing when I call on my guides I usually get this funny feeling on my chest and on top of my head.

    • says

      I have a similar experience Justin. I get a visceral reaction which tells me that Spirit is talking to me. Spirit communicates in all different ways – you can hear them whispering to you, have visions, etc. Are you an Earth sign? I’m a Virgo and tend to feel messages in my body temple.
