Hi Megan! Are you looking for suggestions on how to connect with “new” allies and spirit guides?
I’ve had some success by setting intentions both when drum-journeying and when sitting in ceremony… stating something like, “If there are any allies or spirit guides who would like to work with me at this time, please reveal yourself to me at this time.” Or something to that effect.
I have also found that by regularly expressing gratitude and working directly with *known* allies- other, new allies often check in. It never hurts to work with the Sun, Moon, Mother Earth (Pachamama), etc= and it seems like Others in the Spirit World take notice!
I connect with my known allies directly through prayer- making use of ceremonial tobacco.
