We are all blessed with Spirit Guides in our lives. My experience with my Spirit Guides made me aware of their assistance when I hear a small voice deep inside myself, that gives me the strength and advice to get through things. With practice, it became easier to channel and listen to my Spirit Guides, and I can assure you it is a moving and powerful experience.
Our Spirit Guides are responsible for helping us to fulfill our purpose in life. We all have more than one Spirit Guide assisting us in our journey, but usually there is a special one, our main Spirit Guide, that will stick with us during our whole life. Others will be present every now and again to give us guidance, help, clarity, and insight in a particular situation, or for a limited period.
A Spirit Guide, unlike an Angel, was once a human, and experienced life like you and I, but once they left the physical body, they chose to remain in Spirit so they could learn and spiritually advance while helping others to learn their own life's lessons. A Spirit Guide never have a negative impact in our behaviour, they always respect our free will and never have a controlling nature towards us.
Many of us will go through life totally unaware of these spirit helpers, but as our spirituality increases, we tend to become more aware of them. The ability to contact Spirit Guides is available to all of us, and connecting with them may take different forms. Sometimes our Guides speak to us in our dreams, and we can ask them to do so, before going to sleep. Meditation is also a wonderful tool to make conscious contact with our Spirit Guides. Try to place yourself in a calm environment and focus on your breathing, Spirit will usually speak to you in thought, images and feelings. You also may feel a sense of your guide being by your side if you feel down, lost or lonely. If you’re a visual kind of person, your spirit guide may provide you with an insight like an image that means something to you.
Getting to know and having a relationship with your Spirit Guides will improve the quality of your life. Spirit Guides can help us to achieve our goals, give us comfort when we are lost, and guide us to the right path when things are not the way we would like them to be. If you don’t know how to start communicating with them, try listening to your intuition and you will be able to feel their presence. Ask your Guides for assistance in a particular situation and try to watch for signs that they will send you. Spirit Guides will not only answer some of your questions, but will also motivate you to achieve your spiritual journey in life.
