QUESTION: Masters for some time now I have wanted to make contact with higher guides or masters in my dreams. I have been trying to have lucid dreams on and off ever since I read about them as a child. But in the last few years this has carried more desire as I became aware through my studies of the possibility of contacting higher guides or masters and asking them questions. Despite numerous efforts I have rarely had lucid dreams and when I have I have still been so caught up in the drama that I have not been able to quiet my mind and remember to ask for the presence of a higher guide or master to ask questions. Can you help me to realize my desires? ~George, UK
ANSWER: Why do you assume the easiest way for you to contact your guides is in a dream? Dreams may go on for hours and contain hundreds of interesting things for you to consider. The experience can be fantastic and very informative if you have a procedure to control the how and when. In the beginning it is almost impossible to be able to carry on a dialogue with spirits because you are asleep and the drama is compelling, like an ongoing event from your life.
You have such specific expectations of what you want that you are blocking anything but your particular desired thoughts. Loosen up and let the guides assist you instead of dictating to them how you want things to occur.
You can find it far easier to communicate with your guides in a semi-awake state such as meditation, yoga, or tai chi. By performing these activities, you are engaging your mind in the form, leaving your unconscious self (soul) to be free to ask and get answers to your questions.
As you begin a session, have a couple of questions, to which you desire answers, already considered and in the back of your mind. That way you will not have to have them repeatedly available to be asked. Clear your head of other thoughts, concentrate on your practice, and listen for a response to your previously proposed questions.
If you have not already been introduced to your guides, set up a meeting location where you can invite them in for a chat. Quiet your mind and call them into the space. Ask them their names or designations and ask how they would like to be contacted.
Remember they cannot and will not tell you what to do. They are advisors only. If any nonphysical being starts to tell you what to do, call in the white light and it will disappear. Be patient with yourself. All good things take time to establish.
