WTF are Spirit Guides?
You know those “little voices in your head”? The ones telling you NOT to text your ex after six tequila shots? Well, to put it very simple, those little voices are your spirit guides.
To put it a little more eloquently – a spirit guide is a nonphysical being assigned to help a soul attain its greatest potential.
Your spirit guides are there to connect with you throughout your life to share wisdom and guidance. They help you with protection, love, healing and life lessons, and the importance of our connection with the spirit world cannot be underestimated.
So, while you don’t *have* to listen to the advice of your guides, life tends to go a whole lot smoother when you do. Afterall, your guides want you to win! They are the champions of your causes, the menders of your heartaches and the compass when you’re stuck for which direction to turn.
Some FAQs about Spirit Guides
Do I have spirit guides?
100%. No matter who or where you are in life, you have a group of guides surrounding you. Most people have a group of guides who stay with them from birth until death, but it is not uncommon to accumulate or discard guides throughout your life as you grow.
Where do spirit guides come from?
Spirit guides are beings who have transitioned into the afterlife. But rather than reincarnating physically, they have chosen to dedicate their existence to guidance, as part of their own soul’s evolution.
It is likely that the spirit guides around you have lived similar lives as yours, thereby enabling them to help to you, since they also went through similar troubles while they were still part of the physical realm.
Why do I have spirit guides?
Whatever your purpose in life, your guides are here to assist you to stay on track to achieve it. Whether you’re mean to cure cancer, raise a family, join the armed forces, become President, or just lead a quiet, happy life in peace, their job is to keep you in line with your soul’s purpose, no matter how much (or how little) you listen.
How do I communicate with my spirit guides?
For some people, interacting with their spirit guides is as easy as chatting to your neighbour over the fence. You just notice them there and strike up a conversation. For others, it takes a little more work.
If you’ve never communicated with your guides before, acknowledging them first will help. You could try lighting a candle and setting an intention to connect with them. Maybe explore connecting with them through automatic writing and request that they write through you. Or you could start by simply visualising a figure and starting the conversation.
No matter how you communicate with your guides, touching base with them is always a good idea. Their one purpose is to help you find and manifest yours.
