Even when we feel as though we are completely alone, there are divine companions who are always with us. Before our incarnation they chose to accompany each of us through your lifetime, from the moment of our first breath, until our last. Spirit guides are highly evolved beings that have completed the cycle of birth and death in the physical plane and are now serving as teachers and guides to further elevate their vibrations. They are as “real” as we are, they are just vibrating at another level and reside in another plane of existence.
They work to guide us by working through our dreams and intuition. That quiet voice we hear is often the voice of our teachers and guides.
Some individuals have one guide and others have multitudes, much of this depends on the path and purpose of our life. For instance, a teacher/professor may have several guides, one to guide them through the academic nature of their profession and others to assist them with the great emotional requirements of performing such an important task. Who our guides are is indicative of our own personal journey through life.
Spirit guides are almost never a loved one who has passed away. Although our loved ones stay with us in spirit and we can contact them, they do not serve the same role as a “spirit guide”. Some individuals have archangels and angels as spirit guides who are always with them. Yet, the presence of angels does not always mean they are our spirit guides. Angels can be called in times of distress to assist us for a short time. If we have an archangel or angel as a guide, could be that our mission in life is a complex one.
Our spirit guide is always with us, whether we acknowledge their presence or not. We cannot call them to us or send them away, they are part of us and our journey. However, we can choose to gain the knowledge of who they are and what their role in our life is.
We can train ourselves to interact with our spirit guides in a more proactive way. If we want to know who our guides are, we just need to ask. Get in a quiet and meditative space and ask that they reveal themselves. Do not get discouraged if contact is not achieved immediately, sometimes it takes a little while to establish a communication protocol. Beings from the spiritual realm often communicate through signs and symbols. Once we ask, we need to trust our own wisdom and pay attention to the pictures that appear in our mind. If we see a man in a suit, stay with that, it could be he is a philosopher or scientist. We may see a Native American, a Buddhist monk or maybe nothing at all. By keeping our mind and intuition open, plus paying attention to things that keep coming up after we have asked that they reveal who they are, we will learn their method of communicating with us.
Working with our spirit guides can be an incredible tool for our own personal and spiritual growth. Unlike beings who are in the physical, their wisdom and advice is not influenced by the “world” and it’s everyday trials and tribulations. They dwell in a higher vibrational plane and are a part of the divine plan to serve the highest good. Yet, despite their ethereal nature, the insights and guidance that they offer is very often very practical in nature whilst giving us signposts to evolve our own spiritual capabilities on the way.
For example, if we seek guidance from your spirit guide regarding a relationship, they may lead us to focus on what we are learning, what we need to learn, what we are teaching our partner and they us leading to insights as to what is the true meaning of our relationship. The fact that our partners leave the toilet seat up or are terrible at budgeting the household finances may prove to be irrelevant. The information that we will be provided with will be actions that WE can take to gain more understanding. Love, compassion and forgiveness being the currency of evolutionary change in all matters.
We can also ask your spirit guides to assist you in physical healing. Before we go to sleep, ask that as we are sleeping, that we receive healing.
If we are having a challenge discovering who they are we can also contact a professional psychic/intuitive to assist us (see the services listed on this site for help in the respect).
We are never alone. Never. Take faith in knowing and understanding that there is so much magic and mystery in this life. Just for a moment let the “world” disappear. Raise your vibration and allow the beautiful gifts of spirit wash over you. Life is so much more than what we see. Opening our spiritual eyes and hearts will help us discover a world of wisdom, beauty and peace that we never knew existed. Of course, we can always choose to not believe. It is always our choice. But, why not? Why not step into another level of existence? Why not believe in magic? We do not have to announce it to the office or even to our immediate family and friends, but we can embrace the wonders of spirit in our own heart. It may well envelope us in a light of love and understanding, and will mysteriously transform us into a more connected and loving being.
