Are you aware that Divine companions surround you? Spirit Guides who will accompany you throughout your lifetime are selected before you incarnate. They are with you from your first breath to your dying breath.
What is a Spirit Guide?
They are highly evolved beings that have completed the cycle of birth and death in the physical plane and are now serving as teachers and guides to elevate their vibrations further. They are as “real” as you are, but they vibrate at another level and reside in another plane of existence.
Usually, Spirt Guides reach you through your dreams and intuition. That quiet voice you hear is often the voice of your teachers and guides. They may also make themselves known through repetitive signs and symbols; they use these to get your attention, so you can discover what they are trying to tell you.
If my Spirit Guides are having difficulty getting my attention, they usually resort to creating a physical problem. The beauty of this is that I no longer automatically jump to figure out what is wrong with me physically. First, I check in to see if the physical issue is my Guides trying to tell me something. When they are, the physical problem goes away as soon as I complete the lesson.
You can have more than one Spirit Guide. I have several, and new ones continue to show up. I trust their process and know they are always bringing me guidance and lessons to assist me on my spiritual path.
While writing WISDOM KEEPER, my Spirit Guides showed up daily to help me. I have been a professional writer for over 30 years; I have always used outlines. This time was different. Every day, my Guides would let me know what they wanted me to write. So, I took the leap of faith to forgo the outline, which allowed me to be more receptive to my Guides. Sometimes it was a little challenging to accept their guidance. When they nudged me to write about my 1969 LSD trip in San Francisco, I questioned whether this was a good idea. Ironically, several people have told me that was one of their favorite parts of the book. Even a freelance editor who is also a fundamentalist Baptist minister said he thought many people would enjoy the LSD story.
Identifying your Spirit Guides
They are always with you, whether you acknowledge their presence or not. If you want to know who your guides are, ask them. Start by getting in a quiet meditative space and ask that they reveal themselves to you.
Beings from the spiritual realm often communicate through signs and symbols. Once you ask, you must trust your wisdom. Pay attention to the pictures that appear in your mind. You might see a Native American or a Buddhist monk, or you may see nothing at all. Keep your mind and intuition open. Also, notice if signs, symbols, or messages continue to come up after you have asked them to reveal themselves.
Working with your Spirit Guides is a powerful personal and spiritual growth tool. They dwell in a higher vibrational plane and bring lessons and guidance from other dimensions. You can also ask your Spirit Guides to assist you in healing. One way to do this is to ask them to do healing work on you while you sleep. If I have had a particularly rough day or am struggling to understand something, I let them know I welcome their help and look forward to more clarity when I wake up.
Remember, life is so much more than what we see. Open your spiritual eyes and hearts, and you will discover a world of wisdom, beauty, and peace you never knew existed. Raise your vibration and allow the beautiful gifts of Spirit to wash over you.
