1 – You may smell perfume, incense, or tobacco when there is no known source around you. I’ve even smelled things like alcohol and birthday cake.
2 – You may feel someone in the room, or see shadows flit by out of the corner of your eye, but there’s no one you can see. You may even think you’ve bumped into someone, but again, there’s no one to see with your physical eyes.
3 – Things disappear and reappear, or move. This is a rarer occurrence, so don’t think that every time your keys are missing that your Spirit Guide is giving you a sign. It does happen. A couple of years ago I needed a specific size nail to hang a painting. I heard a noise in the kitchen. When I went into the kitchen the perfect nail was on the floor. I’ve occasionally found dimes, and a Guide kept pushing my license off the shelf (It was in a plastic sleeve.) until I finally realized it had expired.
4 – Coincidences-I recently attended a local event and met someone new. She just happened to be the very person with whom I needed to make contact.
5 – Synchronicities-I have a friend in Bangkok who regularly has similar events happening in his life. I went to a car show as a vendor and sold some jewelry, only to find out that on the same day he had gone to a car boot sale and sold his father’s medals. There are many stories of synchronicities in our lives. It was no accident we met online to support each other spiritually.
6 – You hear voices. I don’t mean the voices in your heard that can indicate mental illness. It might be the voice that said,”Hello, Lillie,” or the one that said, “Well now,” when I was trying to connect with my Guides. I’ve never had an entire conversation, but you can hear your Spirit Guides.
7 – Channeled messages. Some Physical Mediums channel messages by allowing a Spirit Guide to enter their bodies and use their vocal cords for communication. I prefer to remain in control of my body, so I use automatic writing for messages. Don’t try to edit what you get. You may be amazed at the accurate information you receive.
8 – You may see the same reference to dates or times over and over. Before moving I realized I was frequently seeing 11:11 on clocks. In Angelic Numerology, that means I’m about to make some sort of move. For me it was a physical move.
9 – You may see colors and symbols over and over. If your grandfather’s favorite color was turquoise, he may be saying hello.
10 - You receive an inspiration out of the blue. It won’t feel like an imaginative thought, but one that suddenly appeared in your head and is a perfect solution to a problem or issue.
You may find that your Spirit Guide connects with you in ways other than the 10 I’ve listed, but these are the most common. By paying attention, you will know when your Spirit Guide has a message, or wants to say hello.
