Connect With Ghosts
First, make sure you really do want to contact them. Because once you open that door, you may not be able to stop the flow of spirits that come to your doorstep. They can be good or bad. And they do not discriminate. So do your research, have experienced help nearby and always bring in your Guides
and Angels to protect you.
There is a belief that just by using a Ouija Board (pronounced “wee-jee”) will invite those from the other worlds that you do not want. Sometimes there is an energy about the board just from all the misuse of this connection tool in the past that it might not be a good idea, especially if you are new to connecting to the Spirit World and do not have an experienced person with you. Heed this advice. There is also another board out there called an “Angel Board” with the same goals. However, it immediately connotates a higher vibration because of its first goal in the name being that you will want to connect with higher vibrational beings, such as Angels. In either case, if you choose this route, be sure you are cultivating higher vibrations and asking for ONLY the highest vibrational spiritual contact to come as well as doing your protections, as I detail below.
As I always say, when trying any contact with the Other Side, just make sure you surround the White Light around you. A nice visualization that I got from Sylvia Browne is to picture it like the Good Witch of the North from Wizard of Oz. She always travels in a protective bubble. Keep that white light with you all the time. And you can even add, “Do not let any bad spirits near me, etc.” Or rather intend that “only good higher vibrational spirits flow near me/us.” Also, recite this beautiful invocation three times:
“I invoke the Light of the Spirit here within,
I am a Clear and Perfect Channel,
I am Love, I am Light.”
We are coming from our heart. Our inner truth and wisdom. When we come from the heart and trust that we are 100% protected then we truly are 100% protected. So do what feels right for you in any given moment. Follow your heart, for it leads you in the right direction.
The idea here is that as our vibrations rise we are therefore only attracting spirits of that same vibration. If you, however, are actually desiring a thrilling fear-filled ride of terror, then that is what you will attract to you by the Law of Attraction. But if you’d like to have pleasant positive spirit encounters, this too is possible as you evolve in your wisdom and positive vibrations. Sometimes it makes more sense to work on ourselves first and foremost and then try contacting ghosts with a higher calling of possibly aiding them in crossing over. Other times it takes going through a variety of experiences in order to achieve the growth needed for positive ghostly contact.
As with Spirits and Spirit guides we can make contact with Ghosts through our Dreams. I have a quick tip on Lucid Dreaming and remembering our dreams in my Dreams article. Lucid dreaming is just that, you are lucid while dreaming. You know you are dreaming and are one step away from an astral projection if you choose and if you practice. : )During, let’s say a Lucid Dream, you can call upon ghosts in that forum as well. But, again, surround the white light around and also say your invocation you before you go to sleep, and if you remember during your lucid dream.
You are slowly opening up the “channels”, if you continue reading about it and believe this is possible. You will get closer to them everyday. I’ve heard of many people saying that ever since they started reading up about ghosts, talking to people about ghosts and/or spirits, that they have been more aware of what’s around them and have noticed strange things starting to happen. That is definitely possible.
Meditating is the most vital component in reaching stable long term contact with Ghosts and Spirit (as well as our Guides). Again, the idea is to raise your vibrations and with meditation you are doing just that naturally. Having a regular meditation schedule that you adhere to with discipline will not only raise your vibrations but also open up your psychic abilities and awareness more; and to that end your ability to talk and communicate with Ghosts. Please see my Meditation Guidance section for more tips. Also see my articles on psychic awareness for more on developing your psychic awareness.
