I'm also having trouble with this Spirit guide connection thing. Im practicing both astral projection, lucid dreaming and meditation all to get in touch with them but this far without success...
I'm a very suspicious person and a daydreamer so I don't very much trust the whole "listen yo your inner voice" because I either get nothing or find myself talking to something that doesn't make sense or just gives bad answers.
Sure the whole meditation thing to quiet the mind works well, but when trying to contact my guides I get nothing. So ... I'm starting to wonder ... does everyone really have guides, or might it be that they are simply not listening? (It can also be me being deaf, but how do I change that o.0 )
