Before undertaking any task, especially spell-casting, it is important to know that your Spirit Guides are there to help. Unfortunately, the Spirit Guides will only help you to a certain degree unless you ask for more. Here is how you can do that.
1) Play some soft meditation music that will help you to relax and clear your mind of negativity.
2) Visualize yourself in a safe and secure place where your Spirit Guides can meet you.
3) Clear your mind of all images except that of your Spirit Guides.
4) Request your Spirit Guides for help with the corresponding purposes in the following order:
First Spirit Guide- is for your self image or appearance.(Self-Guide)
Second Spirit Guide- is to help balance your emotions.(Emotion-Guide)
Third Spirit Guide- is to help keep you healthy.(Body-Guide)
Fourth Spirit Guide- is for your mental growth and learning.(Mind-Guide)
Fifth Spirit Guide- is for advising and encouraging.(Element-Guide)
Sixth Spirit Guide- is your Guide through the Spirit World.(Spirit-Guide)
Seventh Spirit Guide- is your protector.(Safety-Guide)
If you know their names then that can help you in requesting their help, if not then refer to them by the name listed to the right of the description. If you'd like you can also refer to them as ''Guide of my ***'' instead. So, for example, the first one would be the Guide of my Self, second would be Guide of my Emotions, etc.
If you need me to tell you what to say, then say the following, but coming up with your own personal greeting, request method, and show of gratitude may be more effective since then it is all coming straight from you. Here's what you can say if you can't think of anything for yourself at the moment;
''Spirit of my Self, please help me to begin my tasks.
Spirit of my Emotions, please help me to be balanced.
Spirit of my Body, help me to stay fit and healthy.
Spirit of my Mind, help me to learn and grow.
Spirit of my Element, advice and encourage me, help me to do right.
Spirit of my Spirit, guide me in this life as you will guide me out.
Spirit of Safety, help to guide and protect me.
Guide me with your wisdom, guide me with your knowledge, help me to stay safe and learn what I need to learn. Help me to stay balanced, help me to stay strong, help me with all the following tasks at hand.''
You can then follow that last line by listing some things you need/want help with. This is a good way to start your day or to make sure your Spirit Guides will help you with the specific job/spell/whatever that you are about to do. At the end of the day, or at the end of the specific task, say this;
''Spirit Guides of mine, thank you for your help. Thank you for your wisdom, your guidance, your protection, and your aid. Thank you for your knowledge and for allowing me to accomplish the tasks I had this day.''
And you are done. Never forget to thank your Spirit Guides, even if you do forget to request their help. Knowing that you are grateful may encourage them to be even more watchful without your requesting their aid.
Keep in mind that you don't have to do anything as long or fancy as what I listed. You can keep it short and simple, but it is good to list the Spirit Guides as individuals.
