Hello,
I am hoping to get some advice about how to discern the holy spirit. Also i have some questions about how to tell if you have the gift of tongues (what is it and how do you know if you have this gift or not). I don’t know how to broach this topic and i need someone to help me out i would like to discus it further in a private message . Thank you .

You've broached it just fine. This is a discussion board. By limiting yourself to the opinions of one or two privately, you run the risk of being misinformed by well-meaning, but not so well-informed people.

Marie,

There is a litany to the Holy Spirit you can find on-line; that can help much.

With regard to the gift of tongues, it is good to know that the Doctors of the Church on prayer do not even mention it; and those Doctors are great helps in understanding our spiritual journey to the Lord.

They are: St. John of the Cross, St. Teresa of Avila, and St. Therese of Lisieux. If I left someone out I hope someone tells me.

Prayer tongues, for some, in the beginning of their prayer life may help them focus. It is meant to fade away.

The Holy Spirit May ask you to pray. When you have faith to do what is good.
I hope that helps.
