Spirit Guides are loving, supportive spiritual beings that are assigned to you (and chosen by your own Spirit) prior to your birth on earth. Spirit Guides can assist you on finding guidance and following on your life path. Your personal guides have been selected for you because your purpose on this earth, matches their purpose as a guide. Is your main role on this earth to help others heal? Your guide will likely have a strong interest in the healing arts. It is often believed that unlike Angels, Spirit Guides were at one time, humans on earth - some of whom you may have known in a previous life.
Right now, you have at least 1 Spirit Guide who has been with you since birth and works very closely with you. This is you life guide. Most of us have between 3-7 spirit guides, with a variety of roles. There are also protector guides, joy guides, teacher guides, healer guides, intuitive guides, animal guides, and more. Whether you are purposefully working with your guides or not, they are working with you. Afterall, in order to assist you on your life path and where you are going, they have to get information to you somehow!
Many guides choose to communicate with you by providing you with intuitive signals, such as hunches, a ‘knowningness’, nudges in a certain direction, or just a ‘feeling’ you get about something. Other times, spirit guides will send you physical signals - such as books, flyers, commercials, songs. And one of their most favorite methods of communication is by delivering messages to you through other people. Many times, unknowingly, your Spirit Guides will give information to your friends, loved ones, strangers on the street, teachers, or others - specifically for you to hear and be touched by. These profound messages tend to just roll off the tongues of other people and float directly into your ears, as guidance. Many times, these messages come was a wise, thoughtful, and moving insight into a situation, that you hadn’t considered yet. In some cases, it’s guidance on what to do in a situation. In both cases, it’s food for thought. . . and a message from your Spirit Guides.
Aside from passively working with your Spirit friends, you can work with them directly to co-create the outcome for your life that is in your highest and greatest good, and they totally prefer that. While your Spirit Guides will NEVER tell you what to do with an absoluteness, they will often nudge you in the best direction, when you seek their input. Like a very respectful friend who understands boundaries, Spirit Guides won’t just offer their two cents on everything - they’d prefer that you try to figure it out using the wisdom of your Spirit and soul, and then refer to them for back-up when needed.
At this point, you may be asking yourself,
What is the benefit of working with my Spirit Guides directly, if they are going to help me anyway, without my input? Well, glad you asked!
The answer is this: more direct guidance.
While your Spirit Guides will continue to send you clues, signals, subtle signs to help guide and direct you on your life path - you have the capacity to tap into more insight, more direct guidance, and more information. With this type of ‘on-call’ support system, working with Spirit Guides to co-create your life can help you:
Feel empowered and secure in making decisions and amongst changes
Have more clarity and insight on your life path
Develop your spiritual and intuitive gifts
Become more compassionate and understanding for yourself and others
Make a bigger difference in the world and your environment
Find love and loving relationships more quickly
Heal long standing issues and emotional pain
Be ‘ok’ with the way things are and where they are going
Smile more often
Okay. . . .so how do you tap into more direct guidance with your guides? Just ask for it and trust that what you’re getting is real, because it is.
In fact, I work with my Spirit Guides directly on a daily basis to receive directed guidance, insights on problems and issues, and to assist with readings. My connection to my main guides is so important to my life, that I'd love to assist you in developing and enhancing your connection to your Spirit Guides! While we can do this in a reading or intuitive coaching session, we can get started right now, too.
We can all sense those in Spirit, just in different ways - clairaudience, clairsentience, clairvoyance, and claircognizance - they’re all words and modalities for doing the same thing - receiving Divine guidance. And guess what . . . . everyone is skilled in at least one of these methods! You just simply have to learn which one it is and develop it :).
Want to get started Meeting your Spirit Guide right now?
The first step in meeting your Spirit Guides is knowing what to call them.
The question, ‘What is the name of my Spirit Guide?’, has actually been dismissed in texts about Spirit Guides. The name of your Spirit Guide isn’t important, so why be obsessed with learning it?
There’s no need to be obsessed with learning the name of your guide, however, your Spirit Guides do have names, by which you can and will call them. Does it matter what their names are? No. Is it important to you to know what to call your new friend when developing the relationship? Sure! Absolutely! Of course it is.
What will you call to this being, when you are referring to them or asking for their guidance? While it’s true that each of your guides have slightly different energies, personalities, opinions, and vibrations - which you will be able to pick up in time - the name of your guide is something you can pick up right now.
Stop thinking right now. Don’t think about it at all. Your guides name is not something you think up, in fact, the name of your Spirit Guide is something that will pop into your mind and into your energy when you ask for it. If you try to think for it, it won’t be there. It will get harder the more you try to concentrate on thinking it up. So, release the need for thought. Let it go. Breathe.
Simply ask out loud, or within your mind, “What is the name of my Spirit Guide who is ready to work with me now?”.And wait. Grab the first name that comes to mind. Is it Scott? Nate? Sarah? Megan? Susan? Owl? Fox? Bob? Carla? Violet?
It doesn’t have to be abstract. A few ‘normal’ names, a few strange ones, but it’s all the same - it just a name by which you can refer to them.
So . . just write down the first thing that comes to mind, and this is the name of one of your Spirit Guides. Your Spirit Guide may even share the name of someone you already know - such as your daughter, lab partner, or your cat! And yes, there’s a reason for that.
Once you have ‘met’ at least one of your guides, by learning their name, thank your guide for this information, and let them know you’ll be in touch!
