Anyone can develop the basic skills of spirit communication. The easiest, yet most successful method that I have been taught is as follows: sit with your eyes closed and your hands, palms up, in your lap. Take a few deep breaths and relax. After a few moments, raise your right hand and touch it to your forehead. Place your fingers on your third eye, between and just above the eyebrows. Then ask your higher power and spirit guides to open your third eye so that you will be able to receive messages from spirit. Ask that every time you touch your third eye, that your spiritual portal be opened. Lower your hand back into your lap.
After the third eye meditation and prayer, you will do the following to conduct a spirit communication session: prepare a room that is dimly lit. Have candles and perhaps an article or two that belonged to the deceased person that you wish to communicate with. A photograph is a great thing to have as well. Make sure you have a small table in front of you to place all of these items on. If you do not have any articles, that is okay. Next you'll get a piece of paper and a pen or pencil. Write down the name of the person you wish to contact followed by two or three questions that you wish to ask the person. Place the paper on the table in front of you, close your eyes and place your hands in your lap palms up.
Next, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Say a quick prayer to your higher power asking for wisdom and guidance during this session, and also that you be surrounded by a healing, protective white light. Take a few more deep breaths and bring your right hand to your third eye; let the tips of your fingers rest there for a few moments and imagine your spiritual portal opening up. Then lower your hand back into your lap. Your spiritual contact has begun. You may ask the questions that were written on the paper out loud or silently to the spirit you wish to communicate with. Notice what happens afterwards, are there any sounds in the room? Voices or sensations? Did you have any dreamlike visions, or strong intuitions? The ways in which spirits communicate are many. It may take some time and practice to find out which way they communicate with you the best. If at first, you don't receive any communication at all; don't get discouraged. With time and practice your spiritual communications will get stronger and stronger. You may also contact the angelic realm using this same method.
At the end of each session, always thank the spirits for drawing close, even if you feel like you have not received any contact at all. Raise your right hand and touch your third eye again, and envision your spiritual portal closing. Take a few deep breaths and rub your hands together, this is to signify that you are ending your contact with spirit. With practice, this technique will bring you many spiritual rewards.
