Opening up Spiritually – A Beginners Guide

Opening up Spiritually - A Beginners Guide

When we talk about opening up spiritually, there are a few things that you need to understand. The first of which is there is a slight misconception that opening up and permanently staying open to the spirit world is a good thing. It is not.

When talking about staying open to the spiritual world, most people talk about enlightenment, the much sought-after “end goal” of spirituality. However, opening up before working with spirit is different; it is getting yourself and your mind into a position and state of readiness to connect with spirits.

To open up, you MUST be grounded and protected. Both links will open in new tabs, so you can come back here after.

Understanding spirit work

I define working with spirit as anything you would like guidance or assistance from the spirit realm. That can be tarot readings, working with pendulums, meditating, scrying, or almost anything else you can think of.

When you want to work with spirits for whatever reason and with whatever method, you must ensure that you prepare yourself. That’s because, unfortunately, when working with spirits, you can work with the “not-so-nice” ones, too. That is not, and never should be, anyone’s intention or anything to worry about if you do it right.

While we all have our own spirit guides, who will help keep these negative beings away, it is never worth the risk.

Furthermore, working in love and light, in an optimum situation of being grounded, protected, and open, is a much nicer and more rewarding experience.

The Benefits of Opening up Spiritually Before Working with Spirit

Opening up spiritually before working with spirits can have numerous benefits. In fact, I consider it an essential step for everyone who wants to connect with the spirit world in safely and effectively.

  • Increased clarity. One of the main benefits of opening up spiritually is that it can increase clarity. By opening up and aligning yourself with the spiritual realm, you become more attuned to the energies around you. That can lead to a greater understanding of your emotions, thoughts, and feelings and a deeper connection to the world around you.
  • Better intuition. Another benefit of opening up spiritually is that it can strengthen your intuition. Intuition is the ability to understand or know something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning. When you open up spiritually, you become more in tune with your intuition and can trust your gut instincts more readily. This can be especially useful when working with spirits, as it can help you to distinguish between helpful and harmful energies.
  • Better insights. Improved communication with spirit is yet another benefit of opening up spiritually. When you’re spiritually open, you’re more likely to receive messages from spirits through signs, symbols, and feelings. You may also experience an increased sense of connection with your spirit guides, making it easier to communicate with them and receive guidance and support.

How to Open up Spiritually Before Working with Spirit

As with everything spiritual, a lot rests on your intention. You need to set the right intention for the greatest and highest good. Remember, though, this intention is so important that you should only try working with spirits while you are in a good mood.

How to Open up Spiritually Before Working with Spirit

Also, I know we told you about this earlier in the post, but please, go back and ground and protect yourself first.

Now we will get into a couple of methods that we use to open ourselves up before working with spirit:

Opening up Method 1 – White Light

The idea of this method of opening up is to visualize each chakra light up and opening to allow different frequencies in and out.

  • Sit in your cleansed space (where you were to protect and ground yourself).
  • Visualize a white light at the center of the earth
  • See that light slowly travel up toward you
  • The light will go into the soles of your feet (if you are sitting on a chair) or into your root chakra (if sitting on the floor)
  • Visualize the light traveling slowly through your body, through each of the main seven chakras, lighting them up as it fills the chakra:
    • Red – Root
    • Orange – Sacral
    • Yellow – Solar Plexus
    • Green – Heart
    • Light blue – Throat
    • Indigo – Third Eye
    • Violet – Crown
  • When the white light gets to the crown chakra, see it burst out of the crown chakra in a funnel shape, extending upwards.

Opening up Method 2 – Flowers

Much like the white light method, the idea is to open your chakras.

  • Sit in your cleansed space (where you were to protect and ground yourself).
  • Visualize your chakras, one at a time, opening up as a flower would in the morning sun. Each chakra should be a flower of the same color.
    • Red – Root
    • Orange – Sacral
    • Yellow – Solar Plexus
    • Green – Heart
    • Light blue – Throat
    • Indigo – Third Eye
    • Violet – Crown
  • When you reach your crown chakra and it is open, return to each and ensure they are still open.

If they are, you are all still open; you are ready. However, if you need to revisit and open any of them again, do that now.

If you have successfully completed the opening up, you are ready to start working with spirit.

Common Challenges When Opening up Spiritually Before Working With Spirit

It’s normal to have fears and doubts when opening up spiritually. It can be intimidating, and feeling hesitant about it is understandable. It’s important to remember that everyone has their own unique journey, and there’s no right or wrong way to go about it.

If you’re feeling scared or unsure, one strategy that can help is to take things slowly. Start by setting aside a few minutes daily to focus on your spiritual growth. This could be something as simple as meditation or reading about spiritual practices. You don’t need to jump in headfirst; taking small steps can help you build confidence and ease your fears.

Another strategy is to connect with others who are on a similar path. Joining a spiritual community or seeking out a mentor can be incredibly helpful. You’ll have people to talk to about your experiences, and they can offer guidance and support when you need it most.

Remember that everyone’s journey is unique, and there’s no right or wrong way to go about it. Don’t compare yourself to others or worry about measuring up to some standard. Instead, focus on your own growth and trust that you’re exactly where you need to be.

Remember, it is not a race to open yourself up spiritually. This can take ten minutes or more; take your time and enjoy the peace.
