Find somewhere quiet to sit / lay down or where you will not be disturbed. Put on some soothing music if you find this helps you to relax. You can record this exercise either with a tape recorder, video recorder or just have a pen and piece of paper near by. Once you feel completely relaxed say out loud or in your mind, “Archangel Michael, please may you stand by my side while I do this exercise. Please make sure that only my loved ones who have passed over come though today. Please block out any other spirits who try to come though while I do this exercise. Please also keep my home, my family and myself protected. Thank you.”

Now close your eyes and take in several deep breaths into your chest. Try to completely relax and remove any fears or thoughts that come to you. Try going into a trance state or at least a state where your entire body feels light and relaxed.

Now out loud or in your mind say; “I call upon my loved ones who have passed over and who are in the spiritual realm, I ask that you will please come to my side and pass on your messages to me. Thank you.”

Now listen carefully and write down anything that you hear, also take note and write down any pictures that pop in your mind, any words, thoughts, feelings, sensations, smells, tastes or anything you see. Take as long as you need to do this exercise. If nothing comes at first then please do not get disheartened, keep practicing it and in time you will begin to hear messages from your loved ones.
