Spirit Guides are selected for you and by you before you were born into your physical body in this lifetime.
Reuniting with your Spirit Guide while on Earth in this lifetime is a sacred, special, and many times, a hard-won experience.
You practice meditating, spend time opening up your intuitive abilities and devote focused attention, learning and growth all to get you to a place where you can sense, feel and re-meet your Spirit Guide.
The relationship you build with your Spirit Guide is a personal one. Like a mutually rewarding friendship, both you and your Guide make an effort to learn to directly connect and communicate with one another. Your Guide sends you signs, signals and validations of their presence. You purchase oracle cards, pendulums and attend classes all so you can become a better communicator and understander of what your Guide is trying to say.
This is why when you share with your friends and family members, the name and appearance of your Spirit Guide, it can be a shock to learn that your Guide, is also their Spirit Guide.
How can this be?
How is it that your other medium friend has a Spirit Guide that is also your Guide, when Guides are supposed to be just for us?
Is that even possible . . . are they copying you? Stealing your work? Too afraid to meet their own Spirits?
What is going on here?
As a general rule of thumb - your Spirit Guide - is your Spirit Guide. They guide, support and work with no other person on this Earth during your same lifetime. You are their main priority.
But, there are exceptions to every rule, including this one.
Shared Spirit Guides
There are Spirit Guides who guide and support entire family groups.
There are Spirit Guides who guide and support a couple in a romantic relationship.
There are Spirit Guides who guide and support a small group of friends within the same soul group.
Many Spirit Guides got to be your Spirit Guides because they were friends with you in a previous lifetime.
Past Life Friends, Current Life Supporters
Likewise, many of the people who you know and have intimate connections with NOW - such as your partners, your friends and your family members - are also people who you once knew in a past life.
Both your Spirit friends and your Physical friends can be friends from a past life.
If someone has been identified as a past life friend, it's likely they are part of your core soul group.
Your soul group is a group of souls who you incarnate with time and time again in physical body to learn a collection of lessons, to evolve and to grow with together on your life path. Family members, romantic partnerships and friendships are often people from our soul group.
It is possible that you share a past life friend who is now in a Spirit body, with a current life friend in a physical body.
Meaning, it is possible that both you and a current life person whom is in your soul group both know and are both connected to the same Spirit Guide.
In the human world, this is known as a Mutual Friend.
In the Spirit world, this is known as a Shared Guide.
You and this person can both work with the same Spirit Guide simultaneously and mutually, and when you do, you’ll be able to cross-validate the things that you learn, receive and get from this Spirit Guide. Sharing a Spirit Guide can be helpful for your intuitive development for this reason - as you’ll have a physical life friend whom you can double check the information you receive from a shared source.
