Fun & Simple Ways To Communicate With Your Higher Self

Here's The Link For Free Feminine Power Webinar Mentioned In The Video

If you're like me, you enjoy residing in a vast realm and feeling like you're part of the whole. Just gazing up at the twinkling stars at night or looking into the kaleidoscope-patterned wings of a butterfly, can send me into revery. I like that I'm part of all that is, but sometimes I can't seem to get into that vibe. My mind knows it's true, but I can't feel it. And when I want answers to the big questions in my life, it often seems even harder to be in sync with the Universe, my Higher Self, or whatever else you want to call it.

Do you think I'm being irreverent? I hope so. Because I think we get way too serious around spiritual matters. Spiritual things are the heart of all that is, and life itself is pulsating and playful. It doesn't care if we're “wrong” or “right,” only that we are fully engaged.

So in this week's post and video I'm going to explore a few simple ways you can better communicate with Spirit.

I’ve noticed with my clients over the years that communicating with your Higher Self or The Divine Realms can seem like a daunting task. Spiritual endeavors like this can feel so sacred and important that we doubt our ability to do them correctly.

I’m here to tell you that if you bring a sincere intention into your practice of communicating with your Higher Self, there’s no way to you can do it wrong. Spirit speaks all languages and appreciates your desire to connect.

I realize that I’m blurring lines here and being imprecise. Many would say that the Higher Self is different from Spirit and even Spirit is different from the Universe. Whatever.

I get it. And I’m fine with you making those finer distinctions. But for me, it all goes into one big, beautiful category of “Communication With Something Larger Than My Ego-Self; Something from a Higher Realm That Offers Me A More Vast, And Hopefully Wiser Perspective.”

Here are my suggestions for how to better communicate with this other realm/Higher Self:

1. Don't Be Too Reverent & Serious

Yes, it’s sacred, but it doesn’t have to be lofty and you shouldn’t allow it to intimidate you. It’s just you communicating with some aspect of the Divine, and we’re all Divine.

2. Make It Fun! Try Different Divination Cards & Pendulums


Amethyst-PendulumNot only do we not have to be furrow-browed serious about it, but we can actually have some fun with it. There are lots of fun
divination tools – tons of different kinds of oracle cards and pendulums, and old standards like the Ouija Board – that we can use to make the process more playful.

I particularly like Doreen Virtue’s Goddess Oracle Cards and the Animal Medicine Cards by David Carson. My friend Karen likes the Gaia Cards. I also really like using pendulums.

3. My (Formerly) Secret “Dictionary” Technique

My favorite technique of all is to do something I call a “Dictionary Reading.” It’s super quick and easy and I get really good results. Just grab a big, thick collegiate-type dictionary. Close your eyes, focus on what you want to ask, and then do so out loud. Open the dictionary at random and let your finger land on a word or phrase. Then, once you’ve read the word you finger landed on, look to see what entry this is part of – what word it is defining — unless your finger falls on an actual entry.

I have received the most amazing insights and guidance with this technique over the years, the most incredible of which is shared in the video above. I actually asked the Universe for a miracle, and I got one! I talk about it in the last couple minutes of the video. If you want to check into the event I got that unbelievable dictionary reading on, there's a free introductory webinar — find out about it here.

4. Flip A Coin (Really!)

Another technique I really like is one I got from my dear friend, Life Coach and Best-Selling Author, Farhana Dhalla. She says that when it comes to Yes/No type decisions like should I stay or should I go, you should flip a coin.

That’s right, flip a coin. Heads means yes, tails means no (or vice versa if you prefer).

The coolest thing about a coin-flip is this: the “answer” you get from the coin is not nearly as important as your gut reaction to that answer.

The coin is actually a sort of prop in this instance that helps you feel what you really want deep inside.

In truth, all divination tools can play this role, but it’s easiest with yes/no type techniques.

Since the possible answers are opposite, your reaction to the one that doesn’t feel right will have a tendency to be more extreme.

So flip the coin, notice your reaction to the coin’s “answer,” and you have your real answer. I think it’s a pretty clever way to figure out what you really want deep down – in that place beyond the conscious mind.

Another good one is:

5. Look At The Symbols In Your Life

Especially keep an eye on the Big Three — your home, your car and the animals that show up, plus any reoccurring, super-persistent symbols. I actually covered this topic in a recent video and blog post you can access here.

There are several other possibilities that I haven't covered in this video (it was getting too long). These are: remembering and interpreting your dreams, automatic writing, music, dancing and all other expressive forms of art. I just may do a video on these too, so keep an eye out.

In the meantime, why not tell me your favorite way to communicate with The Divine?

Love, joy, blessings,
