Breathe deeply and visualize a ball of protective light around you. While soaking in your ritual bath, meditate on the whole ritual; the steps you will take and what you wish to say to your spirit guide when you make contact.
Create the circle and enter in the Hour of Mercury if possible. Light the incense. With the oil, dress the Altar Day Candle while concentrating on the purpose of the ritual. Light your Altar candle and state your intent:
“I am here to make contact with my Spirit Guide, and to acknowledge him or her.”
With your Athame, inscribe Violet Candle #1 with the word “Spirit”. Dress it with oil. Light the Violet candle #1, direct your energies into it, and say:
“Here do I light the first Lamp of Spirit. May its light reach out across the barriers from this world to the next. May it make contact with that World of Spirit into which we will eventually enter.”
Take your censer or incense wand and infuse fragrance around the altar area, while rhythmically repeating the word “Merge”. While doing this you are internalizing to build energy and focus.
Replace the censer and pick up Violet candle #2. Inscribe it with the word “Spirit” and dress it with the oil. Put it back on the altar, light it, direct your energy into it, and say:
“Here do I light the second Lamp of Spirit. May it’s light also reach out across the barriers from this world to the next. May it make contact with your Spirit World and help spread the light, illuminating the passageway between our worlds.”
Again, take the censer or incense wand and cense the entire area around the altar while chanting the word “Merge”. Build up your energy to gather focus.
Take violet candle #3, inscribe with the word “Spirit”, dress with oil, charge with your energy, light it and say:
“Here do I light the third Lamp of Spirit. May its light also reach out across the barriers from this world to the next. May the light from these three lamps blend and grow, dispelling all darkness and lighting the way that my Spirit Guide may come to me and speak with me here today.”
Inscribe the 3 white candles with the word “Truth” and anoint each candle with oil. Light the 3 white candles in order of 1, 2, 3, and say:
“Here do I build Truth. As these candles burn during this ritual, their power generates only truth in all that transpires between this world and the next. Through these candles there is truth in all communications that come to me”.
Again, sense the entire altar area while chanting the word “Merge”. Replace the censer and continue chanting. Sit comfortably while chanting, and gaze into the crystal ball, or the clear glass bowl of water. Continue chanting until you feel it is right to let the chant taper off. Continue to quietly look into the crystal ball or glass, not trying to picture anything. Keep your mind blank, so whatever comes will appear of it’s own free will. Gaze into the center of the crystal, there is no need to try not to blink. Look into the crystal and blink naturally. Try not to notice anything in your peripheral vision, just the center of the crystal. Eventually a face or figure will appear. This may take a long time, or it may appear almost immediately. If it doesn’t come at all within approximately 20 minutes, abandon this attempt. Extinguish (do not blow them out) candles in the order they were lit, leave the altar as is and try the ritual again in 3 days. Your results will come before the candles burn down.
When a figure does appear, ask if he or she is your Spirit Guide, and ask for their name. You will hear an answer. You may not hear it out loud, or even see the figure’s lips move, but you will be aware of the answer. This is how most of your conversation will proceed. You will ask your questions mentally (or out loud) and the answers will be clear inside your mind.
Ask if you have more than one spirit guide If yes, ask them to appear, and ask for a name. You may ask anything you wish to know, but it is suggested to establish a connection first where your Spirit Guide may appear to you at any time, or at specific times, so that you can converse with other spirits through him or her. When you have finished speaking with your Guide, thank them, then sit for a moment with your eyes closed. Meditate on all that you have learned. Extinguish the candles in reverse order to clear the circle. Be sure to drink a full glass of water, sometimes spirit sessions have a dehydrating effect.
Keep a journal of all your Spirit Guide contacts, the dates, names, and every communication. You will learn to recognize when and who is contacting you by their particular attributes of voice, and/or mannerism.
