I wanted to try to communicate with spirits but I can never find a good place to start. Last year I actually say a spirit but I haven't seen any since so I wanted to try to communicate with them.
Does anyone know any good rituals or meathods to actually be able to communicate with them? Thank you.
Meditation, journeying (whether you prefer astral projection, pathwalking, crossing the hedge, visualization exercises, lucid dreaming, or any of the many other names and options, it is up to you), and divination would be your most immediate options.
You could raise your mind's awarnes through concentration, maybe light trance is suitable too and all that with the spoken intention to communicate with an entity such as a ghost. You can also set up an altar with sweets and some kind of a high-of-sugar alchohol to please the energies.
Spirits are basically floating energy waves of consciousness, by my reckoning. you yourself have a consciousness which is held by your body. To communicate with a spirit you can tune into the 'waves' that your consciousness emits, via your thoughts, and use this to recieve 'waves' from other consciousness. Spiritual communication can happen this way.
It is called clair-audience. Be very aware of your own thoughts. And when you feel that you are very mentally aware, try to meditate to project your thoughts outside of your mind, all around your head. And, as you project your thought waves... feel yourself being more receptive to waves coming from outside of yourself which are on the same 'frequency' as your own thoughts.
This is a slow 'growth' type of thing. Expect it to be slow going as both your body and spirit adjust.... but if you really want it never give up. :)
