How to Connect to Your Spirit Guides

I believe we all have guides working on our behalf at all times. Some people refer to these guides as angels, spirit guides or ancestors. I feel that we all have our own posse of guides watching over us, ready to help and serve whenever we call on them for support. These guides are tremendously loving, compassionate and empowering. They’re like invisible cheerleaders who always have our back. If you’ve ever had a feeling that a presence beyond the physical was serving you in any way, check out this vlog to learn how to connect to your spirit guides.

In addition to the tips offered in this video, you can also use these meditations to help you expand your inner awareness and deeply connect with your guides.

        Committing daily to a spiritual practice is essential. Love you Gabby as you open the doors to this realm on your platform of who you can reach, it makes teaching and coaching so much easier for earth Angels like myself. Thank you for being a pioneer in the young generation and opening the world to a change in perception.

    I have just tried this, the first paragraph of writing is just general thoughts about my feelings at the moment, and then as I got more into the flow the writing changed and I received guidance on things that have been on my mind. For example, I’ve signed up to do a reiki workshop this week and have been thinking maybe I shouldn’t go because of other things I need to do etc. but the message I received here is to go as it will be the inspiration I need to get back onto my path as a healer. My head feels much clearer about several things, thank you Gabby I really needed this!

    1. Gabby says: June 2, 2014 at 8:43 am

      so awesome! thank you for sharing

  3. katie says: June 2, 2014 at 8:29 am

    I can’t get enough of this practice, but I’m excited to start writing that at the top of the page! I have to time myself when I’m doing my morning pages or I’ll go for hours….apparently my Spirit Guides & Angels are talkers like me…. #theywouldbe

    1. Gabby says: June 2, 2014 at 8:43 am

      of course they are!

  4. Nicci Johnson says: June 2, 2014 at 9:09 am

    I did this the other day and it to me to take action and quit hiding from my power.and to ise the tools I’ve been given , claim my song, my truth, my birth right. . Good stuff Gabby! Thank u for all u do!

    1. Nicci Johnson says: June 2, 2014 at 9:42 am

      Gosh I Mus not be able to type this morning! Basically what this message said was quit hiding and use the tools that have been given to me, don’t be afraid of my power and claim my forgiveness. Share my light with the world and drop the veil of darkness that I hide behind when I forget I am being divinely guided.

  5. Jaime says: June 2, 2014 at 9:26 am

    Love the idea of going direct to your guides, Gabby! Thank you!! I write a ‘Letter to the Universe’ every morning and it is very similar to this. I have gotten so much help through writing like this! I love your down to Earth nature and your ease plus all the free content! You really demystify spirituality and spiritual practices! I am writing a book, teaching a course on my book and just started coaching and have learned so much from you! Thank you for being such an awesome teacher and spirit!

  6. Allison says: June 2, 2014 at 9:31 am

    Gabby! So excited to have found you! I am am empath finding my way, working with a very gifted friend who recommended your Vlog. Studying Seth right now-have you read the Seth material? Thoughts?

    1. Gabby says: June 2, 2014 at 1:42 pm

      i’m familiar with seth and i think the work is beautiful

  7. Diana says: June 2, 2014 at 9:35 am

    Hi everybody,

    I’m actually revisiting my May Cause Miracles book, I’m on day 22 and there’s a lot of ing writing that I’ve done this past three weeks. Now when I identify a negative belief system or pattern I write: “I need a miracle here, ing please show me what you’ve got/show me the way”. Then I carry on writing and as I write I usually get my answer, it often feels like a huge realization, so I write: “Huge Realization:” and the words that come out to the page feel very much guided, I love this feeling of connection, love and gratitude. Now I understand the spirit junkie thing!

    There is another thing I’m starting to do now. I’ve managed to follow the “Ego Eradicator” meditation for 40 days and now I’ve decided to incorporate it to my daily practice, whenever I find a block I invite my guides I ask them to remove all the negative vibes around that issue, like if I were opening a channel with my arms up I do breath of fire for 3 minutes and release all that’s that’s in my way. It feels great afterwards.

    Love from Northern Spain

    1. Gabby says: June 2, 2014 at 9:54 am

      very VERY cool. nice work!

  8. tara says: June 2, 2014 at 9:38 am

    I was just about to sit down and do my “morning pages” and stopped to watch your vlog! I love synchronicity. And I love your suggestion to write the message at the top of the page calling in the highest good. Thank you, Gabby!

  9. Renee baude says: June 2, 2014 at 9:56 am

    I was introduced to this idea during a private kundalini yoga session–just the opening prayer was so powerful for me (I really could have just stopped at that point!). The idea that I could call upon my guides for help and intersession should not have been such a “new” idea, being Catholic I pray to the saints–but this was different. I could open up to my own personal guides that have walked the path before me. Amazing.

    This is gonna sound crazy–but I’m always freaked out about parking. So when I have to go somewhere–like downtown Chicago to see the awesome Gabby Bernstein speak–I talked A TON to my guides. Traffic was crazy, cars everywhere! I drove past the Bodhi Center and didn’t find anything but my guides told me to drive around the block and I would have a spot. So I exhaled, drove around the block and drove back down Magnolia. Only to find a HUGE truck blocking the street–so I drove BACKWARDS out of the street. I had the feeling that I should do the loop again. I did but as I made the turn to begin my loop, a car pulled out! I found off street parking a block away!

    Then I thanked my guides.

    I’m also a huge fan of the book “Animal Speak”. The wisdom of the animals is profound.

    Be Blessed as you are a blessing!

    1. Diana says: June 2, 2014 at 12:30 pm

      Thanks for the animal tip! It really resonates with me, I’ll look it up.
      Cheers :)

      1. Renee baude says: June 2, 2014 at 2:02 pm

        Diana,
        It seems that once you open up to it–you see animals come through your life more often. I can’t tell you how many times animal insight and wisdom has created a clearer focus on a situation.

        I’d be interested to see what animals you might put on your totem? Which animals naturally resonate with you?

        Be Blessed.

        1. Sheila says: June 4, 2014 at 1:28 pm

          I totally believe in animal totems. Every time I notice a different creature enter into my life I look up the significance and sure enough it has something to do with what is happening in my life. Nature has a wonderful way of communicating with us we just have to be aware of our surroundings. This week has been the cardinal which means renews vitality in life and returns joy, brilliance and balance to the mind, body and spirit.

  10. tani Thompson says: June 2, 2014 at 10:06 am

    Ok, I found this exercise though another author, but I feel it is along the same lines. I usually write in a very positive manor, but this writing was the one that helped me release what I felt was garbage in my head. The guidance started one I throw out the trash!

    I am so full of shit. I cant shut the thing up! The thing. my head. so many negative thoughts right now. Why doesn’t anything work right in this house, country. India is frustrating. I have a frown so deep it is giving me a head ache. I just spilled hot tea down my leg. When I try to turn the TV down, the volume goes up and it is stuck that way. I have all the people around me. They are all either sick, fighting with each other or gossiping about me! I have been alone too long. I cant focus on my work. I have not done enough. I have not done enough! I HAVE NOT DONE ENOUGH!!!! I’m lonely…I’m scared… I have to leave India in four weeks. I will return to Australia and then, then states. I am going to stay with my old friend Paul. People have let me down continuously for so long, I expect more of the same.Holy crap…I am one angry BITCH! Why can’t I let go? What is wrong with me. Is it hormones, heart break, stupidity, denial or am I just really unlucky? Will this ever go away? Can I fix this? I’m scared. I am so angry with men… I want to like them. I want to love them. I want to trust them.I DON’T, right now… Right now. I hate them. I think their stupid. I think their Dick makes all the decisions in their life. I think they are greedy, short sighted, boring, slow, lazy, cowards that hide behind a massive ego, an ego that makes me want to kill them. An ego that makes me want to cry… Arrogance…I have it too, but I blame it on them… It is their fault I have become arrogant! I had to. I was getting walked all over by them. I had to wake up and I had to fight! I had to defend myself and say NO… You cant talk to me that way. You can’t do that to me. You can’t take that from me. You can’t have me…anymore. I love men. I am hurt. Why don’t they love me back? Why do they love her and not me? Why do they make money for her, but not me. Why do they listen to her, but not me. Why do the change for her, but not for me? I’m hurt. I loved men. I’m sad. I still love men. I can’t seem to feel good about my work. I make lots of excuses for it. I judge myself harshly. It not enough. It is all over the place. There is no cohesiveness. It is not going to sell. I wasted Dom’s money and now I have another debt to settle. I owe everyone money. I’m scared. I hate being broke, but I also hate the pressure of earning money. I don’t like asking for help, but I need help right now. Will I ever get used to my new life or will I just go on complaining about it. I have moments where I feel so good about it, but I always land back on fear. It is like my center, home base, the place I naturally end up every time. WHY? Debbie downer… I used to be happy. I was once call Polly Anna. I have been told that I am the most enthusiastic person on earth. People used to think I was happy and beautiful and creative, but I focused on the one that said I was dumb. The one that said I was naive, reckless, scattered, foolish. I focused on the ones that did not except me. I tried so heard to make them love me. It never worked. I tried to make them respect me. It never happened. I tried to make them want me. The only thing they wanted from me was my will. Once I lost that, they left me. When I gave up, so did they. When I had enough, they walked away like a kid who just ran out of quarters at the arcade. It was so easy for them because they never wanted me, they were just killing time, using me. Was it fun to be so powerful? Did it feel good to have so much control over me. Did you think you were clever? Did you think you deserved to take what you took from me. Does it still feel good, now that it’s over? Do you think about me and smile? Do like yourself? Are you proud of what you did? Do you still lie to others when I am brought up in conversation? Am I brought up in conversation? Do you even care? Do they even care? What a waste of time. Why do I fill my time with these thoughts. THEY SUCK!!! Three pages… This is not as easy as I thought it would be. I am running out of stuff to bitch about. I could talk about my mother. Naaaaaaaa, I’m not mad at her any more. That’s interesting! I was pissed at her for most of my life. As a matter of fact, it was all her fault! How did I manage to let that go? What changed? Why do I have compassion for her now? Why do I want to forgive her? Why can I do that, but I won’t give that to men? Did I just switch face. I mean did I take my moms head off and replace it with all men that ever hurt me and ever will hurt me? Do I have to have someone to blame? Do I have to have someone to be angry with?
    It’s never my fault! hahaha… that ridicules. I don’t like being wrong. I don’t like being weak. I don’t like making mistakes. I don’t like looking foolish. I don’t want to be judged. I don’t want people to be disappointed in me. I don’t want to let anyone down. I want to be perfect! Wow… that will never happen. Why would I want that in the first place? What would I gain from being perfect? What is perfection. How can I want something I cant even define? This is madness! I dont really want to be perfect, but I try to look that way… No I don’t who am I kidding. I look a wreck! People must see me more clearly than I do. I don’t even look half the time. I forgot to shower yesterday. I don’t wear make up any more or almost never. I live in my pajamas. Who am I kidding. People are not paying any attention to me. I’m not that important. No wonder I can’t focus on my work. Is this what really goes on in my head all day? FUCK! I’m sick of me and it’s only 6:30 am. I want to have a good day. I want to finish that damn dress I have been working on for three days. At the end of the day I want to feel like whatever I did just solved every problem I could possibly have when I go back to the states. That is so silly, but it is true. I feel anxious because I have a lot to do to get stable financially and I am scared! I wish there was something I could do now that will fix that problem fast, but I know this is not going to fix itself and it will take some time… or maybe not! I have pulled many a Rabbit out of my ass! I have been broke the day before rent was due and made a $3500.00 sale the next day. This has happened many times. I can do extraordinary things from time to time. I have the talent. I have the skills. I have the tools. I have the time and the desire to do this, well maybe not the desire. I am sick of forcing miracles to happen. I really just want to be consistent and have a good flow of cash coming in. I want to count on real business, not a lucky week or a life saving client that shows up at the last minute to save the day. I want stability, consistency and sense of control over the outcome of my day, week, month, year, life…
    I want to work through the day with a quiet mind. I want to enjoy the process. I want to forgive my mistakes and celebrate my creativity. I want to be patient with myself. BE PATIENT TANI!!!!
    Do it now! I want to stop the chatter and do my work and feel lite… I want to remember that I am one of the lucky ones. I get to do this for a living. That’s what I wanted and I have never settled for less than this. I have not punched a clock in two decades and I never will, so say “THANK YOU” Tani and celebrate!!! I am soooooo lucky to be able to do this. I know people who will never allow themselves to have what I give myself every day. The Artist life… The Artist way… I am blessed. I am grateful. I have had an amazing journey. I have seen, felt, touched, tasted and smelled things on this earth that most will never experience. Some of which I did not need to know myself, LOL but I am a richer person for having these experiences. I do not regret anything from my past. It was all a part of the lesson. It all happened so I could become the woman I am today. It all happened so I could become the Artist I am today. It all happened…I know it did cause I was there. I can’t change it, but I can change the way I feel about it! That is the part of the story that I get to do whatever I want with. That is the part I get full creative control over. That is the part I don’t have to share with anyone. know one get a say, know one gets to proof read it. Know one gets to edit or spell check it. It is mine, all mine to do with what I please. I am grateful. I am blessed. I am rich. I am powerful beyond measure… The negative thoughts in my head were like a virus that over ran my usual program. I have had to fight to feel and see and smell and touch the truth. I am grateful for me! Thank you Tani for quitting Cigarettes, for starting to exercise, for eating well and getting lots of rest, for being kind you me, for being so patient and forgiving. Thank you Tani… Thank you for all that you do. Thank you for being there no matter what! Thank you for being sooo strong, kind, wise and loving. Thank you Tani… I love you…

      P.S. I wrote that in 2012, right after my divorce. I have since learned how to heal through meditation and the wonderful teachers I have followed like Gabby. I live in gratitude and love my new life in Portland Oregon.

      Love and Light, Tani

  11. Carol says: June 2, 2014 at 10:16 am

    Thanks Gaby! sometimes i feel like that but i love structuring, and you cool advice for writing is super good! thanks! love from argentina

  12. Michele says: June 2, 2014 at 10:21 am

    Interesting!! All my life I have felt an urge to write. But, I had nothing to write about. So, I just ignored it. Because every time I would try. Nothing was there. Since becoming spiritually “enlightened”, I have tried to be more open and follow my intuition. I have been writing on my blog about things. Recently, I have begun writing in a journal for the past 3 Sundays. Guess what? I’m filling up pages and pages nonstop of things. lol. So, now I will ask my guides to directly speak through me. Thank you so much!!

  13. erin pickering says: June 2, 2014 at 10:39 am

    Thank you Gabby for bringing this into my life this morning! I just did the stream of consciousness writing (after a meditation in the sunshine) and it was wildly powerful! I can’t even find the words to describe it but now that I am feeling so grounded, so connected and supported —AND in the flow, I am off to paint – as instructed!!!
    Thank you from the bottom of my heart
    erin

    1. erin pickering says: June 3, 2014 at 10:39 am

      I did it again today! Incredible experience. amazing that my thoughts come onto the paper in print, but when the guidance comes through it changes to an almost illegible script. I then asked “how will I read this later?” and was answered with “you don’t need to read it later, you just need to truly listen now, hold it in your heart, and the messages won’t be forgotten.”

  14. Alicia says: June 2, 2014 at 10:44 am

    I am trying to connect but feel a block. Is that common?

  15. Deanne says: June 2, 2014 at 10:49 am

    Gabbi! Amazing timing to share this message. I’m a true testimony that what you recommended works. Last year June 2013 I was unable to hear my divine voice. Each day I kept asking I tried writing, nothing… My divine was seriously on vacation I felt. Yet after doing a week long yoga class daily and mediation and some yoga dieting, woman I just let go of my divine voice not speaking to me, I even had some good fun with friends and family. January 1st she came to me in a dream, and immediately everything she told me I wrote it down. That list is my guiding force and 4 months after I heard the instruction, I completely expanded, closed old doors and partnerships and stepping into what I love helping entrepreneurs do-gain profit clarity. It’s amazing. My new site came up http://www.thedivinefriend.com and my life has forever enhanced. What you shared is a nice activity building awareness of faith in life and our abilities and that we are always supported no matter what! I love you for sharing your gifts! You are magical.

  16. Laura Riordan says: June 2, 2014 at 10:53 am

    Gabby, I was able to bring my questions to you at The Help Desk taping. It was a wonderful experience and hopefully they’ll be airing it soon!! This was exactly what I needed this morning. I’ve asked for guidance in journaling before but never welcomed God and the highest truth and compassion to communicate through me writing. The main guidance I was looking for today were for a relationship with some difficult circumstances and just continuing to uncover my purpose and how to make it profitable. With the relationship I very clearly heard, “connecting with someone’s soul lasts forever while physical circumstances are only temporary.” I was struck with the transience of this physical, material world like God hit me in the gut to remind me. That then led into my purpose again which is connecting with souls, and maybe easing some of their physical stressors in this world but reminding them that there is so much more. My company’s motto is to Dream, Live, Inspire and Love every day and I want to help people to actively focus on these actions and not get so caught up in the junk. This was awesome!! I wrote pages and pages to get to the point where I could receive the external guidance. Thank you!! And hope to meet up again soon. :-) Peace begins with me!

  17. Krista says: June 2, 2014 at 11:04 am

    :) I have done this a couple of times, and it really is a great experience. What are your thoughts on typing in a Word document? I have wrist problems, and most times writing by hand is painful and uncomfortable.

  18. Kim says: June 2, 2014 at 11:41 am

    My dad just recently passed, I know I can already feel his guidance, so I’m looking forward to do this writing. Thanks Gabby! :)

  19. Delight says: June 2, 2014 at 11:50 am

    I’m so excited to try this! I’m a teacher and just finished the school year. I have a lot of time this summer to work on developing my crochet business and spiritual connection. Guidance from my spirit guides will help with both ????

  20. tIFFANY says: June 2, 2014 at 11:51 am

    thank you for this message ;) I love my highest powers!! I always connect in meditation but can’t wait to see what comes to me in my journal sessions ;)

  21. Elissa says: June 2, 2014 at 12:20 pm

    I watched your vlog, got inspired and opened my journal to begin to write. It’s a beautiful day so I thought what could be better than sitting in the sun while letting my feeling flow? Then a bird pooped on my journal. Any insight to the meaning of this? Or am I looking too much into it?

    1. Wendi says: June 2, 2014 at 1:25 pm

      I’ve always heard contrary to how it may feel in the moment that this is good luck!

  22. Nora says: June 2, 2014 at 12:22 pm

    I love your voice and the way you talk, Gabby. I could listen to you all day.

  23. Stephanie says: June 2, 2014 at 12:38 pm

    THANK YOU!! May you be blessed!

  24. Jennifer says: June 2, 2014 at 12:59 pm

    I love that this is your topic for this week! I used to do this but I stopped because I started to feel so ungrounded in doing it regularly. I’ve been feeling a pull from my guides to get closer to them again. I’m taking this as a definitely confirmation of that. :-)

  25. Wendi says: June 2, 2014 at 1:23 pm

    I have written in this way for quite some time but was definitely ready for a reminder about this practice. I find in writing in this way I feel more connected to myself. More grounded. Also, the writing is always encouraging me and sometimes validating me but always getting me back on track when I’ve fallen off.

  26. Nickole Swensen says: June 2, 2014 at 1:53 pm

    Gabby, Such a great video. What I appreciate and admire about you and your work is that you give new ways to approach a spiritual connection. You are always showing ways to be more connected but let be known that it is ok NOT to do this if it isn’t right for YOU. I take that into my business and personal practice and share that food/spirituality/mindfulness isn’t a one size fits all. Go with what you feel connected to! Thanks for sharing your wonderful light, I love your work!
    XO!

    Hi Gabbie, I love this idea and want to try it but wondered if you can type instead of writing on a piece of paper? Will it still work?

    1. Gabby says: June 2, 2014 at 7:51 pm

      yes:)

  28. Amanda says: June 2, 2014 at 2:45 pm

    Gabby, I love this idea, but I could use your help. I feel I have always been blocked from really communicating with my guides – through my whole life I have felt them and believed that I’ve had a strong connection, but that there is some obstacle that I can’t find a way to remove between us. I just tried this – I meditated for a few minutes and then freewrote for a while, but in the end I just felt blocked. I tried to not be frustrated, but in the end I have this feeling of… sadness. It’s like I know they’re there, but I can’t hear them. Can you help? Any ideas would be very welcome.

  29. sara says: June 2, 2014 at 3:54 pm

    Timing is impeccable! I’ve been trying to connect with my guide. Thank you! :)

    1. Gabby says: June 2, 2014 at 7:51 pm

      enjoy!

  30. Michelle shea walker says: June 2, 2014 at 4:11 pm

    It’s so synchronistic that you would post this vlog today. I’ve been experiencing more & more moments of tapping into a voice outside my own lately, but it wasn’t until after seeing you in Chicago this weekend that I decided to finally sit down and -ing write last night. I’ve been dealing with some issues around love & trying to overcome my addiction to it, something studying A Course in Miracles has helped me make great strides with lately, but last night I decided to tap into my guides & get some real answers.

    There were several solutions to specific questions that were revealed to me, but my favorite came at the end of my writing when I simply ask “Anything else for tonight?” And the answer I received went as follows: “Believe in love. Do not get discouraged by it. You ARE love so love can never hurt you because you are it’s origin.” How beautiful is that? It’s definitely going in the book I’m writing on love & relationships.

    Thank you Gabby for being a constant source of inspiration! Have a great day!?

  31. mArie-helene says: June 2, 2014 at 4:50 pm

    Thank you for this great vlog.
    One thing I find hard when I do this type of exercice is to distinguish what is real what what could be shadowed or modified by my fears or desires. Do you have any tips to work through that or gain confidence in the voice?
    Thank you. Sat Nam.

  32. Kelly diane says: June 2, 2014 at 4:54 pm

    This truly works. It happened to me at random one day a few years back when I was facing depression and anxiety. I’m a writer, so writing is what helps me absolve myself of feelings. At that time when I was writing, I could feel a presence other than myself, and when my pen moved across the paper, words of beautiful inspiration and support flooded the lines. It wasn’t my voice, but the voice of someone who stands by my side constantly. Guiding and loving.

  33. Awo says: June 2, 2014 at 4:59 pm

    I don’t know why but for some reason- i can’t hear the sound here or on YouTube and it works on your other vids. Love how much your work has evolved since the beginning and I’m definitely ready to get into relationship with all my guides! xo :)

    Thank you so much for this Gabby, I’ve just done the exercise and it’s awesome! I’m so grateful for you and all the work that you do in the world. Much love xx

    Love this Gabby!! This is so important! When we work with our non-physical team, our miracle quotient goes WAAAY up. Love to you! Xo

    HI Gabby I had a spiritual experience while talking with my guides one in bed. A force came to me and filled me with love. There was a strong presents behind me, it was warm and it felt like home pushing against my back. I was reading Silvia Brown at the time and she said spirit guides like to have a name to go by so I named her Amelia! I haven’t been talking to her as much as I used to, thanks for the reminder. I am going to try free writing tonight.
    Warmest regards:)

  37. Dianne says: June 2, 2014 at 6:44 pm

    This truly works! I just finished my first book, without my guides I couldn’t write a thank you note. It’s called Gabbie Flowers and the key to the universe! And is about a girl and her guide and how they deal with the bully in the classroom.

    Believe me I didn’t know how it was going to end when I started it and of course the angels and my guide gave me an ending that could only come from them.

    Writing with your spirit guides is an amazing way to inner peace.

  38. anik says: June 2, 2014 at 9:38 pm

    I wish i can do this. But im scared. Ive been struggling with this fear of spirit since im a kid. I guess, im scared to see a “ghost” or just to be in presence of a bad one. Any suggestions to help me. :)

    1. Gabby says: June 3, 2014 at 10:21 am

      call on the guidance of the highest truth and compassion and you won’t invite a bad entity into your space. it’s like throwing a party, you choose who’s on the guest list:)

    2. missbee says: June 5, 2014 at 9:38 am

      Hi Anik, I think if you have fear, best not to do it. Automatic writing is occult. Don’t invite the dark side into to your life. Love, light and peace x

    Thank you so, so much for this Gabby. I’ve never really been called to journaling before, but for some reason, this really resonated with me today. (Maybe it’s time!)Think I’ll give it a try this evening!

    Thank you again, Katie x

    1. Gabby says: June 3, 2014 at 10:22 am

      your guides are calling you… xo

    Thank you Gabby for this spiritual tool as I have just started writing my first book.

    Hi Gabby, I’m a writer by profession. I love this idea of free writing, however I truly have a control issue of over the writing. I’m going to try this and I will learn how to get out of the way – to turn off the inner editor with the red pen lol. Thanks for sharing your spirit! -Nancy

    1. Nancy whitehead says: June 3, 2014 at 10:50 am

      Looks like my editor is already off haha!

  45. Nicci Johnson says: June 3, 2014 at 11:02 am

    So I’ve been going thru this crazy spiritual healing process lately. My biological father whom I have not been very close to just had a triple Bi-pass surgery last week. I rushed down to Texas from North Dakota because no one thought he would make it. In the last 2 yrs I have begun a spiritual journey of sobriety and soul searching so it didn’t surprise me too much when I realized that when I got to Texas, I was exactly where i was supposed to be. Little did I know there was a greater force at work here. May 26 was my moms birthday and guess who happend to be 3 hrs from her gravesite? Me. As you can already tell, I am being guided divinely to be in Texas at this crucial time in my sobriety. I know I am being called to help others for the greater good. I have been able to make a TON of amends down here with my family and my ex-husband even. I have been able to help my dad since he has been out of the hospital and be the daughter I know I am. I can show up for light today with love and light. So last night we ended up in the ER again, dad’s blood pressure dropped. Immediately my ego tries to tell me,” you are supposed to fly back to North Dakota in 2 days. U r gonna be out $500 for a flight.I can’t do this.” Then just as quickly as those thoughts came I heard a loud voice in my head saying, “well I CAN” ..abruptly I stopped and was like wow, my inner guidence system was doing things in my life that I can’t do for myself . This has all been a learning experience that I know ill share with others. Im called to be a motivational speaker and talk about relationships and self esteem and addiction. Ive been sent on a mission. Down here to be living amends for myself and my family. And to be a light house in this time of darkness. Thanks Gabby for the tools. . BLESSINGS TO YOU! :)

  46. julia says: June 3, 2014 at 11:15 am

    Thanks for sharing! I’ve kept a diary since I learned how to write at the age of six. So, I’m really looking forward to trying this out! :-)

  47. lindz says: June 3, 2014 at 12:53 pm

    Thank you for your guidance, and reminders that we are all connected, and we are not alone. I feel so much more at peace and supported after this exercise. I got a loving and supportive message about living in beauty and acting with love for myself and for those around me. I feel so much calmer now and peaceful. I have been feeling spun in so many different directions lately. I’m happier than I’ve been in a long time, but I get nervous I may not be focusing on the right things. Like, pouring my energy into the wrong places sometimes. I was reminded that I’m exactly where I need to be, and that I can’t “mess things up” I asked for continued guidance and support throughout this uncertain time. I’m really grateful for the guidance I received.

  48. Julie says: June 3, 2014 at 1:04 pm

    Dear Gabby, I have tried this twice and it’s amazing! After I invite my guides to come forth, I just start writing whatever comes to mind. After I write my stuff I start to receive messages. The messages are not from me and they come through in a broader sense. The messages are of love and higher self purpose. I find my writing shifts from “I” to
    “we”. It’s hard to explain. This kind of writing is definitely is opening supportive guidance. As always, thanks for sharing your light! I have leaned so much from you! Love, Julie

  49. Laura Calcalerra says: June 3, 2014 at 5:17 pm

    Hi Gabby, I’ve been following you for a couple months now and you’ve influenced my spirituality in a fresh and sensible way. It does help just to write out my wishes hopes and dreams to my guides. I tried it today and it seems to make things more tangible. They sick more. I used to write poetry. Words are so important. In the past my guides have answered me in many ways and sometimes i have to actually get forceful and verbally yell! Or sing. Somehow talking to them works for me very well, it’s easy (I’m a Leo moon so I tend to get a little lazy daisy when I have to concentrate) lol so it takes more effort to actually write. But I’m determined to be focused. That’s one of my human revolutions. Do you ever type it out instead of writing?? Although I’ve always been a doodler and I Love images. They mean so much to me. Thank you for all your advise and encouragement. warmly, Laura

  50. Michelle Arsenault says: June 3, 2014 at 9:41 pm

    I write fiction and I’m often asked how I get my ideas, how do I create characters, etc and it is really interesting because this process kind of works in the same way that Gabrielle described in this vlog -often times, I just start writing and this natural flow seems take over me and the next thing I know, I have a chapter completed. The characters have their own, distinctive voices and their unique dialogue comes to my mind without even thinking about it – I don’t create the characters but they create themselves and I feel like I am connected to an inner guide or some force that I don’t completely understand, but it guides me through each book I write. Of course, if I even attempt to explain this to most people, it probably seems a little ‘woo-woo’ for them ha…but I feel safe admitting it here:-)

  51. Susan says: June 4, 2014 at 11:25 am

    Gabby, I just want you to know how much you are loved and appreciated for your energy, your willingness to share your knowledge and human experiences. They are blessings. I’m so grateful God guided in your direction. Thank you for sharing your messages of living a powerful and meaningful life. I can hardly wait to start writing!

  52. Patricia says: June 4, 2014 at 12:35 pm

    Oh wow, I just started a Morning Pages Facebook group for my friends because I wanted to share this experience with more people :) What marvelous timing to watch this!

  53. Melissa says: June 4, 2014 at 1:30 pm

    Thank you so much for writing this article and how to connect with your spirit guides. I did as directed and received a beautiful message-I asked for specific guidance and received. My thought though is will it come come to be? My heart says 100% but I don’t want to set my self up for failure-any advice?

    Hi gabby- i tried it! And although I didn’t get any guidance back I will keep writing. Is it ok if my thoughts are all over the place while I’m writing?

  56. Barb says: June 4, 2014 at 4:23 pm

    Hi Gabby,

    I love to write, but decided to try this and here is what came to me. I usually write articles on my blog reikispeakstome.blogspot.com, but yesterday these prose just flowed. I was shocked reading afterwards what I had written as I didn’t remember writing some of it.
    As my emotional and physical health heals and my spirituality increases on this incredible journey I’ve been on for two years, I find myself often driven to write. My connections to Source, to the Divine and to my true self grow stronger.

    This post is a little different today. This afternoon after a lovely visit with a spiritual friend, the words spilled out, but in prose this time. I felt led to share my thoughts and words ….

    (1)
    Where have you been
    I was asked
    On a quest I say
    To discover myself through my past
    To find my Magnificent soul

    Was I hidden away
    On this sojourn
    On a retreat deep within myself
    Shall I return
    To find my Magnificent soul

    Like a caterpillar
    I crawled through my existence
    Living without thinking
    A passive resistance
    To find my Magnificent soul

    Then like a volcano
    I was broken wide open
    A butterfly emerged
    I had awoken
    To find my Magnificent soul

    I discovered eternity
    No beginning ~ no end
    I was here before and I will transcend
    To find my Magnificent soul

    Life is so sweet
    It flows with the ages
    With a sweetness like nectar
    My being it engages
    I have found my Magnificent soul
    …………………
    (2)
    My Reiki hands search for the place they will rest
    Tingling, humming, alive
    On my spiritual quest
    To calm and sooth my soul

    The energy calls and I will submit
    Channeling the flow
    Through my body as I commit
    To calming and soothing my soul

    My heart starts to race
    The flow is increasing
    There is nothing to block it
    As Reiki energy I embrace
    Calming and soothing my soul

    I hang in suspension
    As I drop into myself
    No thoughts, no feelings
    Another dimension
    Calming and soothing my soul

    On a lake in a boat to and fro’ do I rock
    Weightless, senseless, thoughtless
    I feel nothing but the flow
    Emotions, health, spirituality all being unlocked
    As I calm and sooth my soul

    What a privilege I own
    To self heal every day
    With my beautiful Reiki
    As I journey into the unknown
    To calm and sooth my soul

    Effortlessly, I move through each level
    Embracing each feeling and thought as I go
    My Qi, unblocked flows like a river
    Thoughts, feelings and turmoil all settle
    As I calm and sooth my soul

    My soul cries out in ecstasy
    You have arrived home it says
    You have waited long years
    Patiently ~ breathlessly
    To calm and sooth my soul

    My soul is calm, my soul is soothed
    I rest in magnificent peace
    In the arms of the Universe
    I have been moved
    And I have calmed and soothed my soul.

    Blessings, love and light
    Barb

    So funny that you mentioned that you have volumes of journals from when you were young. I’ve only been writing since beginning of high school (now a junior to be in college) and already have volumes! My writing has become much more frequent since I’ve started, I’ve learned a lot of great things about myself as well as solutions during rough patches in my life (though I’m not sure if it was necessarily my guides or my mind making sense out of things) but I definietly want to try the meditation beforehand and then write and see how it turns out! You’re such an inspiration Gab!

  58. Haidee Sullivan says: June 6, 2014 at 9:10 am

    WOW! That’s all I can say right now. I just tried the exercise of writing to my spirit guides and I could barely keep up with my pen! My fingers began to get knumb. It was amazing and answered a big question I’ve always had: what is my purpose here?
    Thank you so much for the exercise. I journal everyday but this has taken me to a whole new level and has given me direction on what steps I need to take next.
    Thank you Gabrielle.

  59. Kim says: June 6, 2014 at 4:40 pm

    So I’ve been doing this a couple days and def feel like I’m receiving guidance. Gabby says, as you are writing your hand will just go, is that because in your mind will bring you new thoughts to write? I guess my question is, how do I know the difference if it’s my mind coming up with thoughts, or guidance coming through?

    When I did this a couple days ago, I wanted guidance on a relationship that just ended. I kept hearing, “he will contact you soon, he will contact you soon,” what do you know 10 minutes later he contacts me. Also, with this same situation, I keep hearing “trust, trust, trust”, “patience, patience, patience” and “he still loves you, all will be well”. Of course, I want him to still love me, but I want to be sure this is my guides talking and not my own mind bringing up thoughts.

    Any comments? Doesn’t have to be Gabby, just someone who’s experienced with this. Thanks! Much love to all! XO

  60. NEelam HIrji says: June 6, 2014 at 5:17 pm

    Wow Gabby! That is exactly what happened to and through me on December 26th, 2011. I will never forget that day or surreal moment. I was going through a very very rough phase in life and decided to start journaling my pent up emotions. Journaling was something I never did before. As I was writing that early morning on Dec. 26th, 2011… my pen started to move on its own! I had no clue what was happening but like you said I “allowed for it to come through”. Since then my life has transformed.
    I was automatic writing for days and days and for hours at a time. About 1 year ago, the channeled messages turned into poetry. I thought – wow that’s so cool. Little did I know that I was being Divinely guided to write and self-publish a book containing the poetic messages received. I thank you soulfully for sharing your video on how to connect with your guides. ???? It was so incredible to know that you received through writing as well.
    Feel free to visit my website to see a few of the poems posted from the Divinely guided book titled “Precious Poems by The Divine”.
    YES – even the title of the book was received the writing :)

    Thank you Gabby for sharing your love and shining your light so brightly. Hugs!

  61. Paige says: June 7, 2014 at 8:36 pm

    I have always runaway from writing. It’s never been my tool for connecting to myself much less spirit. I’m ready to get my purple pen out and see what happens. Thanks Gabby for reminding us how we can connect.

  62. Cathy says: June 10, 2014 at 11:34 am

    My stress level went from a 6 to a 2 just by watching this video. I’m excited to introduce this writing and reflection practice into my daily routine. Thanks for sharing this Gabby!

  63. Emma: a half of the merrymaker sisters says: June 13, 2014 at 5:32 am

    In high school I always wrote in my diary. Half was a pep talk to myself and the other half were negative thoughts. I haven’t written in a personal diary, journal, letter to the universe (whatever I call it!) in so long. Tonight I wrote to my guides and they spoke loud and clear. Telling me to forgive my past and use my lessons positively. Definitely ready to share my light, I am on the cusp of something amazing! Thanks Gabby. I also have been reading Miracles Now and love it so much! I am thankful for following Sarah Wilson and seeing a pic of your book… Thanks so much, Em. Oh and I also re-read what i wrote and the word ‘you’ lined up perfectly diagonally for about 6 lines. I thought that was cool hehe.

  64. Osha Key says: June 14, 2014 at 4:50 am

    Thank you so much for sharing this, Gabby, I have started doing it since I watched this video a few weeks ago. And I have noticed a HUGE increase in my intuition and creativity. I believe that our creativity comes not from us, but from the creator.. and we’re just vessels. Perhaps the angel of the highest light and compassion started whispering into my ear… ;)
    Thank you, I love your work <3

  65. Lauren says: July 10, 2014 at 2:02 pm

    Ugh! Gabby I just love you.

    I’m having a low vibe day, I knew I needed to write but I wasn’t sure how to have it be beneficial.

    Thankyou.

  66. Stacy says: July 11, 2014 at 2:12 pm

    Hi Gabby!

    Thank you for shining your light. I am confused…Here’s the deal: I have been spiritual writing around many tough life issues, and at the time it feels like I am getting guidance, even with my name in the writing, being addressed. Then, when I look back at the writing, the advice may be opposite than what it was before…and this leads me to believe that could it be that the writings are just telling me what I want to hear in my subconscious? Really confused, here. Can you help a girl out?

  67. Nina says: July 21, 2014 at 6:39 pm

    Gabby,
    Thank you for this video! For some time now I have had a feeling that I should be doing something important and I do not know what. That I have a purpose I need to be fulfilling, yet I have no clue as to what or how to find out what it may be. I have a hard time quieting my mind and went into a Gassho Meditation before doing this exercise you described. I wrote almost 6 pages in a journal but did not feel as if it was a guide coming through, that it was all just me. I asked for help figuring out what it is. Is it normal for it to take some time before I get answers through stream of conscience writing?
    Blessings,
    Nina<3
