You have many Guides in Spirit, a whole army of them & not all of them are with you for your life time, some come & go, some are with you for specific aspects, some just for certain times within your life.
You yourself are spirit, & so your spiritual self is you main guiding energy. Your Spirit Guides come in many forms from loved ones, to others with karmic links/spiritual family, to ones who can learn from working with you (yes you keep learning in spirit, the journey does not end).
So, what is a Spirit Guide?
A Spirit Guide is an energy who is linked to you vibrationally. In other words, its energy is sympathetic to yours & is on a journey which your mutual energy is attracted to.
This can be for many reasons.
They may have been a part of your physical blood line, spiritual family & karmically linked in some way, assigned to you, or attracted to you, as they specialise in a specific area which you can provide them or them, you. Either way for the duration a Spirit Guide is with you, you will have some common ground.
Is a Spirit Guide is with me for life?
Some will be, most won't. Some energies can be with you from before an incarnation & beyond, others will be with you for life phases or specific issues throughout your life.
I only have one Spirit Guide.
No, you have more. Many more. You are your primary guide, or should I say your Higher Self is. You are Spirit. With you there will be many energies at all times, some permanent, others transitory. Yet all will have your spiritual growth at their own heart.
You have an army of positive Spiritual Guide at your disposal, protecting & guiding.
Do all Spirit Guides know everything?
Our guides, like us, tend to have their own areas of interest, & specialities. What they know or understand themselves will be based upon their own vibration, which although a lot higher than ours in the physical is also hindered by their own gaining of wisdom further to their own growth. So see them more as experts in their own fields of interest or vibration.
I never seem to be able to 'meet' them.
You don't see the air you breathe, yet you’re confident it is there. I would not worry if you cannot make contact. This can happen for many reasons, yet the most is people’s expectation of what communication will be like. I once knew a very good Medium who never had communication from her own Spirit Guides - yet worked very well. Too much emphasis is placed on contact being important which blocks what is trying to be achieved.
Meeting guides can get bogged down in experience & expectation of that experience. Yet Spirit are not alive in the physical sense, so we cannot interact with them in such a manner, & Spirit will always take the route of least resistance. So while we focus on the illusive face to face meeting, they are already talking to us through dreams, ideas, inspiration, creativity, love & many other means. Yet we seek solid proof. The trick comes in changing your perspective, seeking to know your own Spiritual Self (as your own Higher Self is also your Guide) as you, yourself are spirit. We cross these dimensions within our minds, which takes training, practice & dedication to realistic expectations, not just of ourselves but also of spirit. At times we just have to accept that they are there, us not seeing them does not mean anything, it just means we are not consciously aware of them.
Connecting to one of your Spirit Guides
I teach by guided meditation & discussion how to make a connection with your own Spirit Guides, yet prior to that some questions need to be looked at. If you wish to have a conscious link to them, or one of them in particular on a personal level, you need to ask why you wish this connection.
Are you ready to build a relationship with a Spiritual energy that is connected to you on a personal level?
Will you allow an energy who will not have the emotions you have to develop alongside you which can break illusions for you? Are you ready for that level of personal change?
Do you know what you wish to use this connection for?
Are you prepared to meet, not a Spirit Guide, but an aspect of your own subconscious mind - which is equally valuable?
If the answer is Yes to all above then maybe its time to find a way to start that journey & sometimes you can just start talking to them & give one a name - they will not mind what it is, yet if you talk to them, be quite & patient if you wish to listen to their messages.
How will a Spirit Guide come to me?
Like meeting a Spirit Guide, I will briefly talk about it as a long subject in its own right. It is common for a guide when first coming to you consciously for it to take a form which is comforting to you. A form which your subconscious mind will not reject - so you may find an animal, simple colour or relative, yet this form can change as your relationship deepens. You may find if you have an interest in something such as Angels, Native Americans or Fairies then this is how your guide may come to you - while this could be their natural chosen form it can be easier for them - as mentioned guides will take the route of least resistance when dealing with the human mind, or we reject very easily. So take what is given & allow it to change if it wishes to over time.
Yet in the initials stages you may not even get an image, but a feeling, a signature feeling - treat it the same & you will grow.
