I would like some help to summon or invite elemental spirit guides into my life. I would like to have someone help me in my path of witchcraft as well as their wisdom and insight. Any advice? Or even experiences would be nice.
While it is a belief shared among many, but not all, it's generally believed that you have at least one spirit guide. You can call them into your rituals, spell work, space, home, or divinatorypractices by simply asking for them. You can say something like " i invite my spirit guides to be with me" or, "I invite my spirit guides into this space". You can also call upon the spirits of an element (who are not your guide) to join you into a ritual as well. If you know how to cast a circle, you probably have done this when invoking the directional spirits.
Of course, if you know how to astrally project, bilocate, meditate deeply, or astral travel, you can meet them, though you can learn to speak to your guides through telepathy even without those abilities.
Be sure to ward your space as some spirits may take your openness to a guide as a way to try and trick you, though do not be paranoid of every spirit. Use proper protections (such as wards, energy shields, a magick circle, or even a salt ring) and common sense and you will be able to meet spirits safely.
