We are surrounded by a loving and supportive universe. Everywhere we look there is guidance and assistance being offered us. Spirit Guides are among the group of Enlightened and evolved Beings who have chosen to stay in the Spirit realms to assist/guide us.
We all have at least one "Master Guide" who is with us for the duration of this lifetime, and many others who come and go as they are needed.
Whether we feel this guidance and act upon it is another matter! Some of us know and recognize this guidance from spirit already, or will come to know our guides later in life. Some of us live our whole lives in blissful ignorance of that powerful yet gentle guiding hand. Those of us who do feel the connection on some level will allow that guidance in to keep us on our path and prevent us from coming to any great harm.
Guides are spirits of like spiritual age to ourselves, working on the principle of "like attracts like". They are usually not with us all the time. They come when we are "receptive", or when they feel that their attempt at guiding us might help. They, like the Guardian, often have a love link with us. Knowing us in this and/or a previous life.
Our spirit guides are our friends who we know, love and recognise when we are back in spirit form. We have guides because we asked them to be there for us, or because they offered to be our guide before we left the world of spirit to come here on our life journey. We embarked on our journey to this life safe in the knowledge that someone was watching our back.
Why don’t we remember them?
Because that would be like cheating on an exam ! We don’t remember the world of spirit, and we don’t remember our soul friends because we aren’t supposed to. we won’t learn what we set out to if we remembered the wonderful place of peace we left behind (briefly!)
We can have glimpses if we are lucky, but no recollection of the spirit world is allowed if we are to achieve our life lesson. Our lifetime will fly past in a blink of an eye to our guides and loved ones on the other side, this is why offering to be our guide is no hardship for them at all! We in turn can and will do the same for them if and when they decide to come.
Have you ever had a dream that seemed especially vivid and real in which you met a wise man, woman or animal with whom you felt an immediate sense of warm acceptance and connection? You might have been meeting an angel or spirit guide!
Guides can also make themselves known through synchroncity, the meaningful coincidences that lead you to people, places or events that turn out to have special significance in your life. This includes surfing the 'net. Sometimes all that is needed to make contact with your guides is the sincere desire to do so; prayer and ritual are both excellent ways to invite spirit helpers into your life.
If they really want to make a point they will create a synchronicity in your life so you will sit up and take notice. Synchronicities, in general, are experiences created by your soul to bring you into greater awareness of what is occurring in your life.
Remember: Guidance is all around you
