I have always been very fascinated by this topic, and, as a child, my grandmother explained to me the importance of having a guide, a spiritual reference in my life. So today, I will explain how to find your patron god or goddess.

First of all, I would like to clarify something. Personally, I do not consider one spiritual entity to be valid as opposed to another, and indeed that each of us can find in a particular figure, human, animal, or even vegetable, that feeling of belonging and security we need to feel guided and protected during our life.
For example, by rejecting the concept of divinity in the strict sense, I am convinced that my patron goddess is my grandmother.
Before I understood it, however, I devoted myself to various practices that tried to find one.
Here is what I did when I was searching for my patron.
Methods to connect with a patron deity
|Meditation||Engaging in focused meditation to seek guidance and connection|
|Rituals and Offerings||Performing rituals and offering prayers, incense, food, or symbolic items|
|Dreamwork||Paying attention to dreams and seeking messages or encounters in dream states|
|Divination||Using divination tools such as tarot cards or pendulums to seek guidance|
|Nature Connection||Spending time in nature and seeking signs or synchronicities in the environment|
|Research and Reading||Exploring mythology, pantheons, and deity-specific literature for insights|
Yes, meditation is, in my opinion, one of the most powerful techniques we have available to explore our spiritual essence and to know who or what really helps us make the right choices in life and also helps us keep the right path when things they seem to be going badly.
And it only takes very little time and resources…
You only need a quiet place, a light of the candle, and concentration.
Before embarking on the session, I asked my guide for a sign, and, after a few minutes, I started to visualize my grandmother.
Her sweet smile, her hand stretched out to me … so I understood that she was my guide, my patron goddess.
The mirror technique
I admit that initially, the idea of using a mirror frightened me as I have always considered mirrors as powerful portals for supernatural entities.
Then, in a moment of great despair in which I needed to know if I actually had a guiding spirit and who she/he was, I decided to try.
So one day, I tried to meditate and visualize even in front of a mirror.
I stood in front of a large mirror, closed my eyes, and asked for help again.
After a few moments, I opened my eyes and saw my grandmother by my side. It was a very strong moment for me!
This was undoubtedly the technique that made me understand that my grandmother was my spirit guide, my patron goddess.
Whenever I was dreaming about something serious, she was there with me, telling me to pay special attention to certain things to prevent something bad from happening.
Her mood in my dreams tells me if things will go well or if I will face some difficulties.
In short, when I dream of my grandmother, and I find myself living in complex and delicate situations, I know that, in a dream, she will help me recognize that I am not alone.
Connecting with your patron god or goddess. How to do it?
Being able to connect with our patron god or goddess is one of the most precious gifts we can receive to embark on our life path.
But how do we know when we are receiving a message? How do we know when our guiding spirits or angels are really there with us?
Here are 8 of the most common ways that a patron god or goddess uses to communicate:
Seeing patterns or numerical sequences
Do you keep seeing the same number of patterns of numbers repeated over and over?
Do you look at the clock and see double numbers, even several times a day?
It is a message from your angels or guides who are close to you and trying to tell you that the message you sent has been received, and it is time for it to become a reality.
When you see lights or orbs
Orbs have long been associated with ghosts or non-physical entities, especially when they appear in photographs.
When you see twinkling or flashing lights, it could mean that angels or guides are nearby.
White lights usually appear when our guardian angels are present, and colored lights such as blue ones mean that they are present with archangels instead.
When you see butterflies, moths, dragonflies, fireflies
Of course, this does not matter if you are in a place where there are many of these specimens, but when you see a butterfly, dragonfly, moth, or firefly, especially in some unusual environment, then this could be a sign.
These delicate creatures often represent a loved one who has “passed on”, a sign that sends us when they are happy, cared for.
When you hear a song or melody within us
Do you hear songs or melodies in your head that seem to go on and on?
This could often be a sign of your guiding spirits, and usually, the song you have in mind has a special message in it that you need to pay attention to.
Alternatively, this could also be a sign to suggest you relax.
When we are called by name
You hear your name called, but is there no one else near or around you?
This is a sign of the angels who are close to you and are ready to listen to all your desires.
This is a sign that it is necessary to look and turn to the Divine, who is in you to clarify what you want because your angels are ready and willing to help you.
Who or what’s your patron god or goddess? How do you think he/she is trying to communicate with you? Let me know in the comments.
