I was wondering how does God talk to us? Or if we want to ask him for help or guidance how will he respond to our questions? How do we know that it's him out ? 

Is the only way a hukamnama?

When we read Gurbani...that’s us talking to Waheguru.

When we chant ‘Waheguru’, with closed eyes...that’s him talking to us.

Waheguru...

Waheguru...

Yes but how will he answer our questions, or speak to us like a friend? 

When we chant waheguru, what's he saying to us?

Can we ever have a proper conversation?

Thats why most sikhs aim for darshan then God comes in a human form that you can talk to. And ask anything. 

Otherwise God exists without a form. And that way we know God is talking to us when he sends us vibes of peace, love, ecstasy and longing. 

If you say waheguru and ur heart is filled with ecstasy or love then that is his reply

So how would you seek guidance if you have a problem or just generally want God as a friend

He’s everything and hears every prayer we make no matter how quiet. Everyone serves him, demons, angels etc. without him there would be no sun, no sky, no daytime or nighttime for demons to wake up in or sleep in, no skies for angels to fly in. 
 

If you can accept that everything’s him, then praying and believing your prayers are heard becomes easy.

I totally agree but Im just curious to know how he'd show us that he's listening to us or speaking back to us. 

For example when I'm feeling down I really want to speak to waheguru ji rather than any other person, I do paath but don't know what else to do

In all seriousness, I'm not recommending the use of a Ouija board. Seriously.

When you close your eyes, what do you see?

When you talk to "God" what do you feel?

When you "want" a reply, what do you expect?

When you say "He" / "She", how did you derive this perception?

These are not trick questions, neither i believe there are any correct answers. We all have different perceptions and of course - expectations, but why do we have expectations? 

Ask yourself as many questions as you want, you "may" be coming back to the same conclusion.

Let me try and make a suggestion - if you have some spare time, take a walk on your own. Try and go somewhere peaceful and tranquil, nature esque, then see what thoughts come into your mind?

Everybody / everything is created with Light. We need to discover this light and keep seeing this. With light, there is also darkness, you may see what i'm trying to get at here. My point being, why to we see "God" as a person? Why don't we see God in all forms? Everlasting and Omnipresent Waheguru

I think we have subtle little encouragements    but we are to busy and loud to take notice.

Yeah, I have noticed that for example a katha will pop up on YouTube which gives me hope or I'll find a saakhi etc but because these 'encouragements' don't take a physical form I.e. I keep faith but don't see any of my problems resolving...my monkey mind starts thinking it's a coincidence and starts questioning if it's actually God talking to me.

Thank this is eye opening, I remember a mahapurkhs bachan explaining that if we want to love God and get closer to him look at and be with nature. The beauty of nature will force you to praise the creator and think of his qualities.

When I'm with nature, I feel surrendered and hopeful that he's listening to my prayer, I like to sing the shabad 'Jo mange takur apne te soee soee deve.' It reminds me that waheguru ji promises to fulfil our minds desires - this is a fact and unquestionable so I must be lacking from my side. But sometimes I just want something to happen where I feel I've had an answer from him, I see his grace unfolding and my problems resolving. 

I know I may sound needy and religion isn't just about resolving our problems but when all other efforts have failed ,who else can we turn to but God?

It's not a coincidence. Even when you do naam simran its waheguru who is getting you to do naam simran. Bani says without wahegurus Kirpa one does not remember god. It's only by wahegurus Kirpa that we remember him. So even when we do naam simran it is waheguru getting us to do it, that is a communication in itself. Should thank waheguru after it for having kirpa on us and getting us to remember him.

Yeah that's true, I just feel so low. I really just want to speak to waheguru ji. I wish he could just call me up there to be with him. 

Sad thing is I have no hope in the world and when I try speaking to waheguru I just feel like I have no answers.

I think everyone goes through what you described, myself included. Bhagat Fareed ji in his old age told the crows not to peck at his eyes because he wants to see Waheguru with them, look at how old Bhagat Fareed ji was and the unparalleled bhagti he must of done and he still was waiting to see Waheguru ji. And here we are in your young age wonder why Waheguru ji isn't talking to us lol 

Try to do as much naam simran as you can, when it gets intense you start feeling an emotion which you can not describe.
