ASK VIVA: Do you ever have "dry spells" during meditation?

Leigh Hopkins

This is a question that comes up a lot in our Psychic Development class, and something that I get asked a lot.

Yes, sometimes, after months of amazing meditations where you receive all kinds of information, new insights and guidance, the guides become quiet. Meditation is quiet. You shift your focus, wave around a little extra incense, focus and refocus, but no matter what you do, it’s just you and the crickets chirping!

When this happens, it often means that your “team” is shifting. A new guide may be preparing to work with you, or your current team may be changing positions. Specific guides may be about step forward to provide a different kind of advice that you need during this period.

I just went through this last month. It typically happens during times of spiritual transition, which is really exciting if you allow yourself to remain open.

During these dry spells, the best thing you can do is just relax and roll with it. Before you go to sleep at night, ask your guides if they could let you know, on an unconscious level, what’s happening to you right now. You may not remember what they tell you, but you will begin to have a sense of “knowing.”

Allow yourself to relax into this time…we never know what Spirit has planned for us. Just keep asking for guidance and give the message that you’re open and ready for whatever comes next.


Have you ever gone through a “dry spell” with meditation? How long did it last? When it was over, did you notice any changes, either in your meditation or spiritual connection?

We’d love to hear from you.
