I have recently been looking for stuff regarding the topic of talking to friendly spirits, I am not sure though, whether a lot of the spells are reliable and a lot of them are having you summon a spirit to talk to it, although I plan on talking spiritually to a spirit that is already there. Its not one in my house, but I have a few ideas of where some may be, I am also unsure as to find out if a spirit is going to be friendly or not, also, I dont know if there are any practices I should do before, such as learning the basics of spiritual communication first, but any information helps. I have also been wondering about channeling, I have recently taken an interest in the deity Anubis, so I am wondering how to get on the basis of communication with him. We have sort of communicated through signs given, such as a candle flicker, whenever I have asked if he is present in the area, but other than that, I would like to learn how to channel with him.
I think one of the key things to note before communicating with a spirit is to always protecting yourself in case things go sour. If you're not in your own home were you can create a protective circle, wearing a protective crystal like Amethyst, or even having it in your pocket, works just as well. There's no need to summon a spirit that is already lingering about. Just give them a greeting and wait for a response. Spirits are opted to not respond if they don't wish to speak with you at that time.
When it comes to channeling deities it's a good idea to do some research into who they are and what they represent. This way you can give proper offerings and a proper greeting with better success and avoid offending them. For example, if you were to communicate with Camulos, the Celtic God of War, and try to communicate with him about relationship advice and offer rose petals, there's a good chance he wouldn't be interested.
Another thing to remember is that spirits and deities love to be cryptic. So pay attention to subtle details like a small breeze or those chills moving up your spine, and don't take everything at face value. Most of the time they're trying to make you think, and they're doing it on purpose.
If you need any more help, feel free to send me a message.
There's been some great information already handed out, so I will just leave my few sliver coins on the table. It's always great to get some basic information before going on with channeling, but try jotting things down in a notebook and ask yourself. Why you wish to do this? Other than you want to speak to a spirit. I have found while channeling myself. Most sprits don't just come in and say hi, how your day been, they normally come in because they want to say something important.
They want to share a message with someone else that they can't get through. They want someone to hear their message which may have been ignored before, or maybe even wanting to help the person channeling by brighten up their day. For now while you research more information about this, you can just start bonding with the spirt. Just say hello or good night and you may find a connection building between you two. He might appeared to you in dreams and give you signs that could be handle in your own life.
When you do start channeling just remember to go easy on yourself. You won't be able to channel a whole page worth in a night and some things may feel like their coming from you more then the spirt, just know you will get there in the end. Like it's been said, there's no need to summon anything if it's already around you. Just start your conversation with the spirt small and you will find yourself noting more signs around. Remember protection, research and you be good to go.
