How to Ask Your Spirit Guides for Help

I have read many theories on how mediums get their abilities. Some say it’s hereditary – if you’re not born with it, you can’t develop it. You either have it or you don’t. My personal philosophy is that we are all capable of connecting with our spirit team. I mean, WHY would we even have a team to work with if we couldn’t communicate with them, right?! That’s like going to work and being told you have co-workers to accomplish a goal with but you can’t see, hear or speak to them!

It simply makes no common sense to me so I encourage you to accept right here, right now, that you have the ability to communicate clearly with your guides. I know my theory is correct because my guides told me AND they specifically asked me to tell YOU that you have a spiritual army just waiting for you to command them.

How do you connect with your spiritual army?

This process will be different for each person but it boils down to three things: Repetition, Triggers and Intention.

Here is my personal process. It is the same every time. I am also relaying the message my guides gave me to pass along to you.

Repetition, Intention & Triggers

I have a routine I use to connect to the higher realms. First, I intentionally journey at the same time every day. Next, I use the same smell (sage or palo santo). Finally, I use the same piece of music. These triggers tell my mind that meditation or a journey is about to happen. My mind will automatically get into the theta state when I activate these triggers.

I use repetition in my mind’s journey as well. I go to the same place in my mind. This sets the intention and tells my brain that I am fully expecting to raise my vibration and consciousness to access the higher realms. I prepare my mind by imagining I’m walking down an oak-lined driveway to a big, white southern plantation home.  I have the intention of relaxing my mind as I walk toward my destination.

When I reach the porch of the house, I walk inside intending for this door to take me to the place where my portal resides. The interior of the house is as you would expect – large staircase at the entryway and open area to the right. I go to the right, toward the back wall where I see an elevator. I set my intention for this elevator. As it rises, so will my consciousness. My elevator has 15 buttons. I know the floor number actually correlates with the level/realm I’m going to. Today my guides tell me I am to choose level 12.

The Message

When the doors open, I never know what will be on the other side. This time, it is a vast desert. My guides take me to a tent where I meet Jesus, Confucius and Muhammad. Muhammad invites me to take a journey. I am on a camel and he is leading it across this barren, enormous desert. He is explaining to me that most people go through life thinking they are all alone. He says, “This is not true. You just have to be willing to see.”

As he says this, sand-colored shadows start to appear all around me. Thousands of them – stretching as far as the eye can see. He continues, “You see? Everyone has a spiritual army waiting to be called upon. You must lead them as I am leading you on this camel.”

He tells me this life is about bringing others the message that they have access to this spiritual army that is waiting to help them find their purpose, their soul’s journey – whatever they’re here for. I am to teach them, communicate for them and show them how they can communicate for themselves. People are wandering in a spiritual desert looking for a drink. I can lead them. They are not wandering alone — they have an army of heavenly hosts and guides waiting to help but they can’t unless the individual asks.”

What he is referring to is the law of Free Will. Our creator gave us free will and as such, there are dire consequences for outside forces to override that. So, our spirit team will not act unless we give them permission.

And now I bring this message to you: If you are struggling or seeking guidance, call upon your spirit guides, teachers and angels. Ask them for guidance. Tell them you are open and willing to receive this guidance. How will you know they have answered? Most of the time, it comes in the form of “coincidences”, which are really synchronicity. It’s no coincidence that you were thinking about moving to Melbourne Fl and then see a billboard in North Carolina that advertises visiting Melbourne! That is an acknowledgment that your guides hear you and you are on the right path.

Other ways your angels and guides talk to you is through gifts. You might find feathers or coins or other weird things popping up in odd places. Mine sends me butterflies. I have a friend who gets dimes. Some people get pennies.

If you ask, they will put just the right teachers and things you need in your path at just the right time. You tell them what you desire and they will show you how to get it.

Another way they communicate is by putting thoughts in your head. You might have an Eureka! moment and wonder where that came from – your spiritual army! It’s not hard to get messages. You just have to listen. My mentor told me “Prayer is talking to God. Meditation is listening.” A daily meditation practice where you just sit in silence prepares a time to hear your guides without the daily chaos of work, family, school etc. Even just five minutes helps. Make it a priority as you do getting dressed in the morning. Yes. It’s that important.

Of course, if you’re in a rush and want an answer to a specific question, you can always book a channeling session with me. I am happy to connect you with your guides and give you messages that allow you to move forward so you can fulfill your Divine purpose.

My Mission

I am on a mission to awaken, activate and educate tomorrow’s lightworkers. It doesn’t take more than turning on the news to see our world is headed toward destruction. Our earth is being ravaged for financial gain. The next generation is being drawn more to technology and less to human interaction. Every week, the healthcare industry has a new “disorder”  — and pill to treat it! We are losing our connection to the higher power, our soul, Mother Earth and each other.

So how do we fix it?

By helping our healers step into their power and embracing their soul’s purpose. You are here because you have heard the call. You may know what your gifts are and already be using them or you may have just started down the path. Either way, humanity needs you and it needs you now.

I am here to help you become the healer you were meant to be so we can save this planet. I do this through a soul discovery session where we find out what your gifts are and what’s keeping you from using them to their full potential. Next, I help you find the right mentors and training to fulfill your destiny.


Spirit has called me to modernize a traditional healing modality so that today’s tech-driven generation can understand it and be called to service. This modality is called Celestial Shamanism and while it incorporates tenets of traditional shamanism, it expands into the gifts that today’s Indigo, Crystal and Rainbow children are born with. Gifts like psychic ability, mediumship, astral travel and working with interdimensional beings. This is the way of the future, but no one has standardized the teaching or branded it. I am the one that will do that.


medium near me trance medium shaman Amy CarrollIn this physical realm, I am the same as you – a lightworker on a mission who forgot who they were upon incarnating on this planet. I am not more gifted or spiritually powerful than you. We all come from the same Source and we all have the same awesome capacity to tap into that source. And that is truly the goal of enlightenment – to remember that we were never separated from God or each other, we just have to find our way back and reconnect. Those of us who are remembering are here to guide those who are struggling.

In the spiritual realm, who I am gets a bit more complicated. Follow me down the rabbit hole.

First, let us assume that  life on this planet was and still is assisted by extraterrestrials. Let us also assume that when we speak to spirit guides that we may not be talking to deceased corporeal human beings that were once on this planet. Let’s assume that our spirit guides consist of beings that are alive and well in other dimensions or star systems. When we talk to them, it’s not like channeling a dead spirit, it’s like texting or calling another living being on earth. Except they’re “out there” …somewhere.

Still with me? Good.

NOW, let’s take this a bit farther. What if, these beings were so highly advanced spiritually and technologically that they had the ability to “download” their consciousness into a physical body on another planet – like..I dunno….. earth? And in doing so, were able to continue assisting humanity by blending in. You know, without the awkwardness of blue skin and face hieroglyphs. Or the terrifying sight of a giant Praying Mantis walking into Wal-mart for Black Friday deals….just sayin’.

I AM one of these highly advanced beings. I am a walk-in ancient starseed soul that came into this body in 2008. I have been multiple ascended masters throughout history. At my highest oversoul I am Archangel Uriel/Ariel and I work in conjunction with my celestial partner, Archangel Raphael who is also presently incarnated (as Ryan). We are part of the Emerald Order. We both have the ability to activate ascension codes in others with our presence and using light language. I also activate stargates and I am a clear channel for the  highest realms. In addition to activating ascension codes, Ryan is a powerful healer (he IS the Archangel of healing in human form, afterall!). Ryan’s other role is to be a protector and source of strength for the rest of the Emerald Order and Blue Ray Beings. Our joint mission is to awaken and activate as many of those working toward planetary ascension as possible. 

What is the Ascension?

Without getting super technical with new-age spiritual jargon, it is earth raising it’s consciousness to the next dimension (or frequency). Just as we as individuals are raising our consciousness to break out of the reincarnation cycle and be one with the supreme creator again, so is the planet. Only, we are the fleas on the dog. We as individuals need to raise our frequency to be able to ascend to the higher frequency with earth. We can take our physical bodies with us or we can decide to transform into lightbody. Either way, we must change our frequency to be successful. This is achieved through raising our consciousness and activating our lightbody dna. 


Yes. YOU. Don’t look at me like a deer in headlights. There are no coincidences, my child. You are here, reading this page because you were lead here by your higher self. How do I know this? Because my guides told me I need do nothing other than make the information public- that the ones who were called would find me. Several of my students have told me they had dreams about me before they met me. They claim I look just as I do now, but more “angelic”. You may have heard a calling to join the  Blue Star Tribe, my shaman training for Blue Rays and other Emerald Order members just realizing their path. Whatever has lead you here, know it is not a mistake. This is your clarion call to step into your power and claim your rightful place among us. You are one of the chosen.

Now that I’ve told you all my dirty secrets….won’t you do the same? Introduce yourself!

Use the contact form to send me a message. Tell me how I can help you become who you’re meant to be and play your role in earth’s ascension.

What Is Shamanism?

What is Shamanism?

In short, shamanism is an ancient healing modality based on spiritual principles. Before modern medicine, the tribal priests WERE the medicine men and women. There was no delineation between what was healed spiritually and physically. They believed that all physical, emotional and mental dis-ease was tied to a spiritual imbalance.  This could be past life trauma, soul contracts with others or even curses. Modern shaman hold these same beliefs.

Not a Religion

Contrary to popular belief, shamanism is not a religion. It predates all religions and co-exists with all religions from Christianity to Buddhism. There are Baptist ministers who are shaman. There are Buddhist shamans, Wiccan shamans, Gnostic shamans and people you would never imagine would practice shamanism are shamans. An emerging classification is Celestial shamanism. I am a Celestial shaman, which I will talk about later in this article.

This article by Paul Sivert does an excellent job of showing the differences between Shamanism and organized religion.

Shamanism is not an exclusive practice. Meaning, shaman work with multiple healing modalities alongside shamanism. These can include Reiki energy healing, Angelic healing, Esoteric healing, mediumship  and many other methods that compliment shamanism. I incorporate mediumship and Reiki with my practice. As a Celestial Shaman, I work in multiple dimensions, with different types of energies and spiritual beings. I open and close portals. Many times I will work on a client and a loved one in spirit or spirit guide/animal comes in to assist or to deliver a healing message.

How do you Become a Shaman?
There is a misconception that you must be a member of the First Nation tribes to enter into shamanism. That is not true. Most Native American tribes refer to their healers as medicine men and women – not shaman. For the native healers, it is their birthright that is passed down generation after generation.
Those of us who are not birthright shaman, are what I term “spirit-called” shaman. It is a spiritual calling, much like a priest or other holy servant has. Out of respect for the Native Americans, I don’t refer to myself as a shaman. I use the term shamanic practitioner or shamanic energy healer or Celestial Shaman. We learn the modality from other teachers. We must also do an enormous amount of self-healing and releasing of false egos before we are allowed to work on others. The type of shamanic healing I learned is called Incan or Peruvian shamanism. It comes from the original descendents of the Inca tribe that took residence in the Andes mountains. Later, as I incorporated various other types of healing, my guides taught me new terminology that resonates better with today’s technologically-advanced civilization. Later, I was told this was called Celestial Shamanism. It accomplishes the same thing, but uses terms that millenials and the younger generation can better relate to. This is important because the next generation needs healers, too. If we use concepts that are foreign to them, they may not want to pursue shamanism even if it is their calling.
How Does Shamanic Healing Work?
Simply put, we work in the spirit/energetic realm to achieve a physical effect. Science has proven that at the atomic level, all things are made of energy. We are all connected through energy. We have energy strands that we attach to people, places and things. Emotion is energy. Every be thinking about someone then run into them in public, get a call or get contacted by them? That’s an energy strand that activated when you thought about that person. It’s like a tap on their shoulder, “Hey, I’m thinking about you.” That makes them think about you and viola’ you make contact. Energy healing works the same way. Your soul is energy. I carries energetic strands from past lives into every consecutive lifetime. Shaman clear these energetic imprints. Science has made strides in proving the efficacy of energetic healing. Mike Sententia at The Healing Lab is doing some fantastic work on his version of ethereal healing, which integrates spirits with consciously directed energy healing like Reiki and biofield healing. I had the pleasure of interviewing Mike. You can listen to his interview with Greg Carlwood, where he gets in depth on his research. Amazing work to scientifically measure and validate energy healing as an effective healing tool.

Daily Life of a Shaman

We are normal people. Yes, we wear crystals and are typically crystal hoarders. No, that’s not marijuana you smell, that’s sage. We commune with and honor nature.

I did not start out that way. I would kill a spider in a heartbeat! After I started my training, I saw things from the spider’s perspective and now it literally hurts me to needlessly kill an insect or animal (like a snake). As a medium, I learned that animals do have souls, but we have it backwards. The question ISN’T if animals have souls, but did a soul choose to be an animal this lifetime? I was also never a “tree-hugger”, but now they talk to me. I listen to their stories and write them down. Some I share here on my blog. Imagine if you could talk to a HUMAN that’s 200 years old! That’s what it’s like to talk to a tree. The stories they can tell!

When we start a healing session, we open Sacred Space. But our values go with us outside that space. As a shaman, you don’t clock in at 9 am, do your healing sessions then clock out at 5 pm. It is a 24/7 way of life. Just as the monk commits to a life of purity and impeccable living, so must the shaman. We must live with integrity. We will only ask for the highest and best good of all, because the truth is (whether you believe it or not), we are ALL connected – the plants, animals, earth, sky, rivers, forests and us. What affects one, affects all. We are very mindful of being helpful without enabling. There is a fine line between helping someone because YOU need to feel needed and helping someone learn the lesson they came to learn. One can not learn to swim if the lifeguard keeps jumping in to save him or her (wink). The shamanic lifestyle requires a non-judgemental point of view. That means we are unattached to the outcome of whatever we do and recognize your journey is your own. Yes, I want to help you heal but if YOU choose not to, I must respect that. That, I think, has been the hardest aspect of my training.

Caring for the Shaman

Healers naturally give to others more than they give to themselves. It is hard for us to receive care…and sometimes even love! However, self-care is critical. We are called the “wounded healers” because we’ll heal everyone but ourselves! If you are considering the shamanic path, know that you MUST practice self-care or you risk infecting your clients with what I call your “bad ju-ju”. You must clear yourself of any past issues and going forward you must stay vigilant to resolve any future issues as they arise. For this reason, during shamanic training, we are not only taught the shamanic methods for use on others, we do these same healing methods on ourselves for self-healing. We undergo the soul retrievals and all the work necessary to clear ourselves so that we do not bring it to those we will be healing in the future. This self-healing is life-altering. Just as it is for many of our clients.

Is There a Shaman Near Me?

We are everywhere. The best part is, you don’t have to be near us to be healed by us. It’s all about energy, remember? We work at soul level. That means we can access your energy body without you being present. I do the work then I have a one hour video call with the client to go over my findings and what they need to do. You can schedule a distance healing with me here.

I find working with people who need to release false egos (fear, powerlessness, depression etc) works better in person. I also have more loved ones in spirit show up when I work on someone in person. If you are willing to travel to the Greer, SC area, you can book an in-person healing with me here.

How You Can Benefit from Shamanism without Becoming a Shaman

Luckily, you don’t have to become a shaman to incorporate shamanic principles into your everyday life. You can start by reading my blog. In fact, I kick off a new Transformation Challenge every Jan 1st. It always starts in the South Wind, where the archetype of the Serpent asks us to shed the past the way she sheds her skin so that we can emerge a better version of ourselves tomorrow than we are today. But why wait until January when you can start now?
