Asking Spirit Guides for Signs: A Simple Tutorial & REAL Life Examples

Our spirit guides are always with us, everywhere we go. They’re here for us in the hard times and cheering us on through the good. Although we know they’re there, sometimes we need reminders. A great way to confirm your spirit guides are listening and helping is to ask them! This full tutorial is on asking spirit guides for signs PLUS I share with you some of my real life examples of when my spirit guides answered me with signs.

Asking Spirit Guides for Signs: Tutorial

Asking for signs should be super easy, right? Unfortunately, many of us get tripped up and make it much harder than it is. Remember, your spirit guides can hear you whether you say something out loud or just in your head! So here’s how to ask your spirit guides for signs:

  1. Find some quiet time to focus on your connection with your spirit guides. All you have to do is think about them!
  2. Ask your spirit guides to send you a clear sign (or signs) that they are listening.
  3. Give it one to two days, but typically your spirit guides will send you signs quickly. They’re usually excited to be able to communicate openly with you!
  4. Be open-minded and observational as you go about your day. Pay attention to unusual animal or bird behavior. Also listen and pay attention to what’s being said on TV, the radio, even things online! Sometimes signs from spirit guides come in very random forms.
  5. Once the sign comes, you’ll know it. Usually spirit guides send signs in groups of three so that it’s clear cut.
  6. Once you’ve received the signs, thank your spirit guides.

Using Divination to Communicate With Our Guides

If you have a difficult time receiving signs in everyday life, try using divination. Choose one form you’re comfortable with – tarot, oracle cards, runes, etc. Cleanse your divination tool using smoke, etc. Then ask your spirit guides to speak directly with you during your divination session. This is an easy and effective way of receiving messages from them – plus larger messages can come through.

Ways Spirit Guides Communicate

Spirit guides will speak to you in whatever way they can get through to you. Sometimes they’ll use an animal, bird or insect in nature to get your attention. Other times they may speak to you through another person in a random conversation OR through recurring symbols on TV, radio, online, etc. You have to be observant and open to receiving their messages. In addition, they’ll send signs through dreams, songs, and will communicate via divination as described above. Be patient and know the signs will come.

Times I’ve Asked My Spirit Guides for Signs

The Razz-ma-tazz

Years ago, while I was going to nursing school, I remember having a moment where I felt rather discouraged and overwhelmed. I asked my spirit guide to send me a sign that I was on the right track. The sign literally came to me in the form of a crayon. Let me explain. My nursing school teacher at the time used silly acronyms and songs to teach us difficult concepts and one of them was called the Razz-ma-tazz. Well, I went to color with my daughter and read the color of the crayon that night – razz-ma-tazz. Sounds like a coincidence, but I knew it was a sign from my spirit guide.

Medicine Bear Spirit

Recently, I worked a candle ritual for clarity and healing for a family member. I also evoked the spirit of the bear to watch over and heal this family member. To be honest, I didn’t ask my spirit guides for signs; however, the same day, bears started popping up everywhere! Three times that same family member chose bears on their clothing, toys, and then when asked their favorite animal states “the bear”! This was new and I KNEW it was a sign the ritual worked and the bear spirit was present.

    My name is Clay. I am so glad that there are others like me in this world. Listening to others share their experiences has had a profound affect on my life. Growing up experiencing supernatural and unexplainable phenomenon is a heavy load to carry when you have no one to talk about things that will get you labeled as crazy when trying to explain to others. I had to except my “gift” or go insane. With acceptance came freedom. With other’s shared experiences came validation and a sense of belonging. Thank all of you for sharing your experiences and knowledge. Making our rational by means of complete irrationality is our bond.

    Hi! I’m a beginner and I was wondering how do you connect with them. I have a few books, and I came out to my mom about it and her friend from work is actually Wiccan. and after a while, she said she didn’t like it. (she and her coworker aren’t friends anymore) and her coworker was supposed to help me with my journey and she didn’t get a chance to. I don’t know if you’re supposed to connect with them first or not. I might be missing signs also 🙁

      No you don’t have to start with spirit guides.

    Wow! I love how you just validated everything I knew has been happening for me, especially in the last 6 months. And yes… they actually do (most of the time) come in threes. Honestly, this was something I noticed all by myself, as well. And if I were to go on telling you exactly how all these signs appeared almost “instantly” just as I asked, you may not even believe me. They were SO ironic & timely, that there’s absolutely NO WAY they could have been just “mere coincidence”. It’s seriously even a little bit freaky (in a good way) when these “rare” signs that I have asked for, literally just show up on DEMAND. And I mean, not just rare, but EXACT things that would usually ONLY happen in some kind of fairytale story, as if one were to wave a magical wand. I’m not even kidding… as absurd as this may sound, twice now, I have felt like I was actually living out the reality of a “real” Snow White or Cinderella scene. And I’m just high on life, no alcohol or drugs involved. Had I myself, not asked & actually seen these things happen with my very own two eyes, honestly, I myself would find them hard to believe too. They’ve began to happen so much lately, that I even started to take pictures & video record them for others to see. And oh no… they don’t hide in secrecy, absolutely not! I believe that they (Spirit) want us to share our experience with others, showing that they are present & always with us. Such a beautiful confirmation. Thank you so incredibly much! Jen

    This was awesome information. Thank you, I’m wanting so badly to connect with my spirit guides and have been either missing their signs or not asking the right way. I will definitely try the options you listed. Thank you

    Every other morning I go for a quick run (5:30 am), one dark morning I asked my Spirits guide to protect me while I was running. Sure enough, I was serenaded by birds in every corner I made. The first bird scared me but, by the second one I realized I was being protected. I was smiling, grateful, and it was a very awesome sign.
