Just who are my Spirit Guides?
We all have Spirit Guides. In fact, throughout our lifetime we will have many different Guides depending upon what life may throw us. I refer to my Spirit Guides lovingly as my "Spiritual Support Team". I talk with them daily, starting first thing each morning. I set my intentions for the day and ask for their assistance to guide me. I talk with them throughout the day as well. It may be when I'm looking for a parking place, struggling with a problem at work, or when I just want to share some good news. It's like having my best friend with me all the time.
Each of us has one Master Guide. Before retuning to the Earth Plane for another lifetime, you determine who this Guide will be. It may be someone you knew from another lifetime, or it may be a relative who crossed over before your birth. This Guide is with you when you enter the world as an infant and will remain with you until you cross over at the end of your lifetime. The Master Guide's job is to look out for your best interest and gently nudge you back on path should you venture off during your journey.
Not only do you have a Master Guide, but you will have many different Guides who come and go during your lifetime. You can think of them as teachers and counselors there to help you with the various hats you wear as a human. You may have one guide to help you in your relationships. There may be another to help you through an illness. You may have additional guides to work with you in your career in a profession, or as a mom. These wonderful Souls agreed to be with you and help you navigate through this journey you designed.
There's a good chance you have had the opportunity to work with another as a Guide yourself. We are always evolving, growing, and learning. Being a Guide for another gives us the opportunity to share what we've learned throughout our many lifetimes, and offers us the chance to be of service to another beautiful Soul. It is truly an honor to be asked to Guide another through an incarnation.
So, now that you know you have Guides, you may be wondering how best to communicate with them. First, set the intention. This doesn't mean picking up your cell phone to have a conversation. Your Guides can communicate through symbols, songs, and pictures. The best thing you can do is take time each day to quiet your mind from the constant chatter running through it. It is in this quiet space that this connection can be made on a very deep level. Begin by sitting quietly in a comfortable position for five minutes. Breathe slowly and deeply. As thoughts travel through your mind, thank them and return your focus to the quiet. During this time ask your guides to come forward and show you signs that they are working with you. Be open to those signs that are undoubtedly already all around you. You may see repeating number patterns, find pennies almost daily, hear the same song often, or just feel their presence. Acknowledge it and the contact will increase. Get in the habit of talking with your guides every day. The more you wish to communicate with them, the more apparent they will become in your life. A Guide will never interfere with your free will, but will be there to offer guidance and support in a pinch.
Isn't it wonderful we have such beautiful Souls looking out for us each and every day!
