Asking Spirit Guides for signs? You may already be getting Spirit Guide communication signs, and the next question is, how do you know where they apply and what they mean. In this post, we're going to discuss - 

I know how frustrating it is to receive messages from Spirit, but not knowing what or where they apply until a couple of days later. 

This has happened to me many times, but over the years, I've come to find out ways that improve your ability to get and understand messages from Spirit Guides, and today I'm sharing them with you. 

Have you ever felt like the signs your Spirit Guides are sending you are elusive, if not a little vague?

Spirit Guides often send us signs of their presence and to let us know they are aware of what is going on in our lives. As a way to show support and as a method of preparing us for what is to come.

Spirit Guides' whole goal is to guide us, so they will often share just a hint of what is coming around the bend. 

When we are better prepared for what is to come, we usually feel a greater sense of security. This helps us take steps forward in our lives with a little more confidence. 

Spirit Guides send us alerts of upcoming events. 

Even if some of these events feel negative, know that even things that feel negative when they first occur can end up in positive outcomes. 

So, instead of focusing on whether the messages are warning messages, know it's entirely up to you to change the perceptual narrative.

You can focus on the idea that lots of times, Spirit Guides walk us through changes, and often, these changes are good. 

They will often send us cues of changes through visions, physical signs, such as numbers, or even by pulling things into our energy field.

Their signs allow us to be just a few steps ahead of the material.

By helping us become aware in the non-physical, we have better resiliency for what we get signs about. Thus, better acceptance and patience for how it plays out in the third-dimensional plane. 

Spirit Guides are sending us signs, messages, and signals, all the time, yes, so how do you make better use of these messages and know what they are to mean?

Below, we're to go over four ways you can decipher messages for a better, more streamlined communication process with your Spirit Team.

4 Tips To Decipher Messages From Spirit Guides

#1 Ask For Clarification Through A Second Sign

If you feel like your Spirit Guide is sending you a sign, or trying to get a message to you, ask them to show you again to be clear. 

Most guide messages come through the clair-senses, so ask for clarification through another one of those senses. 

Ask for another word, symbol, or even sign that will further point to what they are trying to show you. Whatever it is, to be sure, follow it up by asking for a word or a feeling to go along with it. 

Usually, clarification of Spirit Guide messages come in a few days, and sometimes within minutes from when you ask. 

 

#2 Agree On Symbols And Clues

Think of something that stands out to you, when you see it, you always notice.

It can be a ringing in the ears, a flash of light, a particular symbol, an animal sign, a flower, number sequence, or song. 

Think of times you've received synchronized signs, such as number signs, right as you are making life changes. If you liked that, ask for it again.

Then when you get the symbol, you can take it as confirmation, and take a moment to tune in for more information. 

A shared Symbol, also called a calling card, from your Spirit Guides, can be received in meditation. 

The Spiritual Gateway Series or any of the Connecting with Spirit Meditations in The Member Center Meditation Room can create space to receive a universal symbol. 

This symbol helps you know when the messages you get are from your Guides, versus other universal forces.

 

#3 Distill Your Energy Field

Clear away the clutter in your energy field. 

Clearing your physical clutter helps calm the Spirit and the soul, as can clearing away the digital clutter. 

One of the biggest distractions to receiving incoming spirit messages is having an energy field that is full of too many things, splintering the aura. 

By clearing your attachments, such as by going through your likes, taking the time to shift the mailings you receive, you introduce more freedom to your auric field. 

With a clearer auric field, it's easier to sense what is coming in clearly, there's less of an energy scramble. Meaning, income receptions are sharper. 

Some people feel minimalist living helps with enhancing their connection to Source for this reason.

One way you can distill what comes into your energy field is by noticing how your heart feels anytime something comes into your space. You can do this with emails or even social media posts.

If it's unnecessary, let it go or, at least, give it a boundary. 

The more you can let go of things that dampen your aura, the more quickly you can connect to the high vibrations of Spirit, and the message becomes more apparent. 

For more on how to do this, check out the eBook, Spiritual Security, or the How-To Space Clearing eGuide that comes in your Welcome Kit when you join The Membership Program.

 

#4 Invite Someone Else In On The Interpretation

The best way to get an objective opinion is to ask an unbiased source - someone outside of your energy field.

You want to choose someone who tends toward optimism and positive thinking. 

Spirit Guide messages are almost always tending towards truth, hope, and greater joy, so when you share any cues you get, try to focus on someone who brings this out of you.

Layout for this person what you think are signs and symbols and markers and then ask what they think about it. 

Without another person present, use a deck of cards, or pull some pages from your library books. These are also outside sources. 

So to recap, to better understand Spirit Guide Messages

  1. Ask for a second sign

  2. Decide on a shared symbol

  3. Distill your energy field

  4. Bring in an external source if needed

Interpreting messages from guides can be challenging at first, but with a few tweaks, the messages do get clearer. Usually, they are physically validated within a matter of days, often sooner than that.

 

Still need clearer messages? 

Sometimes Spirit Guide messages are hard to access when your Chakras are blocked or due to other barriers, like doubt, check out these articles for more:

It is also believed that this symbol can deflect the negative power associated with the corners in the buildings.

Borromean rings aka Valknut

Founded in Buddhist, Viking and Roman civilisation, the Borromean ring consists of three rings interlocked with each other so that cutting one away result in the fall out of the other two. Hence Borromean rings became the symbol of strength in unity.

Christians have used them to symbolise the Holy Trinity; that is why they are also known as Trinity rings.

Scarab

This is a spiritual symbol of ancient Egypt. Scarab was associated with God Khepri, the god of rebirth, creation, and sun; hence scarab became a symbol of wealth, rebirth, and protection. This symbol is used in jewellery as the symbol of protection against dangers and the afterlife. Greek and Egyptians used this symbol in the ancient ages, and however, now this can be seen in every country. The body of this beetle is symbolic of protection, and the wings are symbolic of rebirth.  A Dung beetle found in Egypt, scarab motifs and illustrations can be found in ancient Egyptian architecture.

Conclusion on spiritual symbols

There are a lot of spiritual symbols worldwide and in different cultural aspects. Most of these symbols are being used from the ancient age to bring good luck to human life. However, some symbols carry negativity too. Therefore, these spiritual symbols will bring good luck in your life when the intent and thoughts are positive. These symbols help us keep all the negativity behind us and believe in goodness to succeed and have good luck in life.

A totem is a spirit being, sacred object, or symbol of a tribe, clan, family or individual. Some Native American tribe’s tradition provides that each person is connected with nine different animals that will accompany him or her through life, acting as guides.

Different animal guides, also called spirit guides and/or power animals, come in and out of our lives depending on the direction that we are headed and the tasks that need to be completed along our journey.

These tribe’s beliefs further explain that a totem animal is one that is with you for life, both in the physical and spiritual world. Though people may identify with different animal guides throughout their lifetimes, it is this one totem animal that acts as the main guardian spirit.

With this one animal, a connection is shared, either through an interest in the animal, characteristics, dreams, or other interactions.

This Animal Guide offers power and wisdom to the individual when they “communicate” with it, conveying their respect and trust. This does not necessarily mean that he or she has actually touched or spent time with this animal, more that, they are open to learning its lessons.

For some, knowing what is their totem animal is almost an innate process. It’s as if they’ve always known, inexplicably drawn to the animal or having a special feeling for the animal’s energy. For others, they wonder how to tell what their animal totem is.

Here are some questions to ask yourself if you’re wondering what your animal totem is:

  • Have you ever felt drawn to one animal or another without being able to explain why? This could be any type of living creature, including birds and insects.
  • Does a certain kind of animal consistently appear in your life? This doesn’t necessarily have to be a physical appearance, it could be represented in other ways, such as receiving card and letters with the same animal pictured over and over, unexplainable dreams of a particular animal, watching television and seeing the same animal featured time and time again, or, actually having the animal show up.
  • When you go to the zoo, a park, wildlife area, or forest, what are you most interested in seeing?
  • Are there any animals that you find to be extremely frightening or intriguing?
  • Is there a particular animal that you see frequently when you’re out in nature?
  • Have you ever been bitten or attacked by an animal?
  • Have you ever had a recurring dream about a certain animal or a dream from childhood that you have never been able to forget?
  • Are you drawn to figurines or paintings of a specific animal?

If you still need more help, ask the Universe for a dream or a vision to see if anything comes up. Also ask the animal to show itself to you and pay attention to what you begin to see from all sources — television, books, billboards — it doesn’t have to be the actual animal. Does one animal begin to appear frequently?

Native American Symbols, TotemsOne thing to remember is that you cannot choose your totem spirit, rather it chooses or has already chosen you. The Spirit chooses you and they decide to whom they will reveal themselves. Much of the process of identifying your spirit animal is paying attention to both your past and your present. It is a process of developing your inner knowledge and spiritual understanding.

The totem itself is a symbol that represents this animal. This could be any number of items – a crest, a totem pole, an emblem, a small figurine, and engraved or painted stone, or anything else that depicts your animal guide.

Note:Native American totems did not include all of the animals listed below, as many of these creatures did not exist in North America; or, in some cases, not at all (such as the unicorn.) However; the concept of “totems,” by whatever name they were called, have been known throughout the world since the earliest days of Greek Mythology. Though the unicorn and dragon are generally accepted as centuries old mythical creatures of Europeans, pictures of these fabled animals have been found in Native American tapestries and pictographs. It is also worth noting that not all Native American tribes held these beliefs.
