communicating with spirits

Communicating with spirits can be dangerous if done improperly. Movies and TV shows today make most people think that all it takes to communicate with spirits is an ouija board, a few candles, and some gumption. What they don’t tell you is how dangerous it can be to communicate with spirits without the proper respect. 

If you’re interested in communicating with spirits and want to do it right, keep reading. We’re breaking down the top 5 dos and don’ts of communicating with spirits.

What Are Spirits

First, we should probably define exactly what a spirit is. “Spirit” is a general term that covers a wide variety of entities in the spiritual realm. 

Ghosts are a type of spirit and generally the loudest. These are souls of things that are stuck on the same plane as we are. Ghosts are harmless, and there’s never a reason to be afraid of them. 

They can make spaces feel weird or off with their energy. They may startle you or catch you off guard, but they’re simply souls that are stuck here. It’s extremely rare to find a ghost that can cause you harm. 

There are also spirit guides, which are universal energy that tries to guide you towards the best path for you. 

How to Communicate With Spirits 

It’s important to remember that you can communicate with spirits on your own. No one should try to gatekeep you from communicating with spirits if that’s what you want to do. 

The best way to communicate with spirits is to practice raising your vibration. Think of your space as a sacred, old-timey radio. You have to tune it so you can pick up the right frequencies. 

That said, there are still a few things to keep in mind when communicating with spirits. 

The 5 Dos of Communicating With Spirits 

We asked the experts and they came up with five things you should do every time you want to communicate with spirits. Keep in mind that you may get conflicting advice when you talk to different psychic experts. Find the advice that feels right to you and try it out the next time you try to contact a spirit. 

1. Do Invite Positive Spirits 

Make sure that when you attempt to connect with spirits that you also welcome divine spirits to join you. Divine spirits, spirit guides, and angels can join you in your sacred space and help keep you protected from unwanted negative contact. 

Many professional mediums work with a whole spirit team when they attempt to contact ghosts and other spirits. 

2. Do Ground and Protect Yourself

Even though it’s extremely rare to find a spirit that can hurt you, you should still take measures to keep yourself grounded and protected. 

All it takes to be properly grounded is a visual meditation. Imagine that you are deeply rooted to the ground with strong roots at your feet. Imagine a sphere of warm, yellow protective light surrounding you. 

Simple visualization techniques can become powerful charms against negative spirits. 

3. Do Ask the Spirit’s Name

You must attempt to get personal with the spirit after you’ve made contact. Ask it its name and use it when you converse. Pay close attention to what the spirit is saying to you and be willing to make it a two-way conversation. 

Remember, getting information from a spirit is difficult. They often can’t communicate the same way that we can. But when you make an earnest effort, you’re building trust and rapport.

4. Do Use a Divination Tool

If you’re struggling to connect on your own, you could try to use a divination tool. Safe tools to use are tarot cards, automatic writing, pendulums, sacred notebooks, and EVP recordings. 

Remember, a tool doesn’t guarantee you success. As with all tools, the way you use them will determine the outcome. 

5. Do Practice Respect

The last thing you want to do when communicating with spirits is disrespect them. You’re already tampering with things that are beyond your control, to add disrespect to that can be dangerous. 

Be patient and respectful. Use positive tones and always express your gratitude. 

The 5 Don’ts of Communicating With Spirits

Now that you know the right way to communicate with spirits, let’s take a look at what you absolutely shouldn’t do. 

1. Don’t Use an Ouija Board

Yes, we mentioned using divination tools as a good idea. But you should never use an ouija board. When communicating with this tool, you could bring other, less positive spirits into the world and it could have disastrous psychic effects on you.

2. Don’t Go in Without Protection

If you are feeling negative psychic energy or aren’t at your best, it’s not a good time to attempt to converse with spirits. The things you feel and think matter just as much as the things you say, and if you’re not careful you could put yourself at risk.  

3. Don’t Push Your Limits

If you start to feel uncomfortable during your conversation, cut it off immediately. Trust your gut here. You have to make sure that you stay in control at all times. 

4. Don’t Go in Unprepared

If you aren’t prepared to talk to spirits, don’t try to do it. You need to have your wits about you in order to stay protected. There are experts out there who are willing to help if you need to converse with spirits but are feeling unsure. 

5. Don’t Tease or Challenge

It’s worth repeating a tip we gave earlier: do not be disrespectful. Teasing, challenging, or goading spirits into communicating with you is a surefire way to risk bringing a seriously negative spirit into your space.
